Worst than a Hostel

Rating: 2

This has to be the worst hotel Ever - More like Motel. The floors are concrete,with no rugs, the floor was dusty, no space to hang up your clothes or put them in drawers. It was freezing constantly, the rooms do not have individual temperature controls, The best they could do was give us more blankets, There is NO POOL and the jacuzzi was cold water - no heat at all , i got 2 different stories 1st the jacuzzi turns off at midnight and 2nd the maintenance man was here to fix it, i'll give him a call. Yes it is in the middle of everything, the shops on lincoln drive, and 2 blocks from the beach. But it really is comparable to a stay in a hostel. Thats what it felt like. The continental breakfast was the worst ever - a counter set up with 1 toaster, bagels, oj, tea and coffee and that is virtually it. The only up side - we could do some people watching from the balcony, but the beds on the balcony or loungers looked like that sheets had not been washed in a long time, one woman was laying on it nayked and there was a brown stain on it, But the courtyard was pretty. The staff could not help with directions, i had to ask for an iron, and there was construction going on outside the building. This was my worst hotel experience ever - DON"T Go !!! Trust the negative reviews don't go - not now not ever - It's a hole in the wall. With no space at all.

I would rather stay in a Motel 6

If you like cement floors, dirty bathrooms and rubbermaid night stands, then the Aqua Hotel is for you. The rooms were a very nice size, but it looked like they went to the thrift store to furnish it. When you check in, don't expect anyone to help you upstairs with your bags.(No elavator, only 2 floors) My stay there was not that pleasant, except for the beautiful friend I met from England. The hotel(really a motel) lost power at about 10pm Sat and was not restored until 11pm Sun. After that, there was no hot water or clean towels. (Oh and no continental breakfast. Since when do you need power for fresh fruit and pastries?) The staff was not friendly at all.

The best boutique hotel on South beach

Rating: 10

everyone was incredibly friendly, rooms are super clean and very relaxing. my requests for breakfast, blanket taxi, late checkout, etc... was accepted with a smile. I go to Miami very often and I think I found my hotel. and pretty reasonably priced too (130/nt) the service was truly top notch - what a pleasure to be their guest!

Hip & Funky

Rating: 9

AQUA is the hippest hotel in South Beach. My friend and I had a great vacation thanks to the friendly staff who shared the inside scoop on where to go each night. Our room was the perfect size and had cool and funky furniture. The sundeck and the lounge were great places to chill, and since Aqua was so close to the ocean we went every day. If you want to have fun, be near all the action, and get a great room for a great deal, Aqua is the place to stay!

Like bad service? Stay here.

Rating: 1

The staff at Aqua is RUDE and incompetent. I requested a room with 2 beds. Upon arrival was upgraded to the penthouse because my room was not ready. Then, I was told the penthouse was reserved, and I had to move my things early the next morning into another room (with no help). At check-out, they were going to charge me for a room I never even stayed in, which was $40 more than the room I was actually in. The "manager" was incredibly rude and hesitant to fix their mistake. He said that I was trying to hustle him for a discount and refused to listen to what I had to say. No wonder the hotel was so VACANT! Terrible staff ruined my vacation. DO NOT STAY AT AQUA! There are plenty of other cute/trendy hotels on South Beach that offer more amenities and friendly, welcoming service.
