    Historical Traveler Reviews The Aqua Hotel Fort Lauderdale

    A lot better than what expected

    from

    I was there July 3 to the 7. We booked the penthouse which is an apartment with 2 bedrooms, one has a private bathroom with shower , king size bed , tv ;the second room has a queen size bed with a walk in closet. There is a second bathroom with bathtub, a washer and dryer.

    Very spacious living room, dining room and a full kitchen.

    The penthouse is on the third floor, entirely for ourselves, a nice balcony overlooking the pool and a terrace.

    We had a great time, Angela was really nice with us..................I really recommend this for a party of 4, I cannot immagine being in a hotel room after staying at this property.

    Location was really good, one block from the ocean, 10 minutes walk to Las Olas.

    Nice comfortable retreat

    from

    A comfortable, smaller vintage accomodation.

    Rooms are very spacious and well appointed.

    Rates a very reasonable, and just a block from the beach.

    A great value for a family vacation.

    Loved angela's

    from

    A very friendly small hotel,ideal for families with young children.Very clean and very friendly staff-nothing was a problem.We would certainly recommend the penthouse appt to families wth young children,becuase even when it rained,our kid's had room to play indoors.We will look Angela up again on our next trip to Fort Lauderdale

    Amazing Little Resort

    from

    My sister and I stayed at Angela's over our Spring Break of 2006. We have no interest in the craziness of spring break and were hoping to avoid the chaos. Angela's resort was perfect.

    The rooms were absolutely beautiful and clean. It is just seconds away (walking distance) from the beach, shops and restaurants. Excellent Location!! It was quiet, clean and everyone was extremely friendly. Angela helped my sister and I by giving us directions to places and suggesting certain places to go. I accidently left my new swimsuit in the window and the staff mailed it back to me...all the way in Missouri. I was extremely satisfied with my stay.

    A Great Place to Stay

    from

    The week of April 6th., 2006, my husband and myself stayed in Fort Lauderdale Florida at Angela's Beach Resort. I would recommed this hotel to anyone who wants to stay where it is clean, comfortable, friendly staff, convienient to beach,

    restaurants and night life, spacious rooms with many amenities and safe.

    I honestly can't say enough. I have been to other hotels along the beach in Fort Lauderdale in the past, and never had a good experience.

    This was a great place to stay and very affordable. The rooms are great !

    I will always stay there in the future and I recommend this very highly to all.

    Thank you, Angela, for such a pleasant stay.

    A Very and Friendly place

    from

    We stayed at Angel's Resort and found Angeola to be extremely helpful and courteous. We all have our bad days sometimes and to read that it is bad practice re credit card etc, we simply had no problem. Thorougly enjoyed ourselves and will return to stay with Angela. Re the price etc, it is value for money and cannot fault it in any way, cleanliness is our main criteria and that it is.If one is picky then stay at $2000,00 per night hotel.

    Red Flag: horrible business practices

    from

    I am looking for a hotel in Fort Lauderdale for January and I found Angela's. I read the review here and I thought it would be fine. Yesterday, through the secure website, I sent a reservation request, providing my credit card number. My surprise this morning is that on the email (pretty unfriendly and inflating prices) I received today, my credit card number and expiration date were included!!!!!!. I called right away to let them know. The woman on the other end of the receiver started yelling right away and being extremely rude, telling me that they had a hurricane and she had to go to Office Depot and that was the reason. I tried to explain that there was a glitch with the system obviously, but then she told me that "you know too much and I don't want people like you in my hotel, you are a problem", hanging up on me. She sounded half drunk. I am filing a complaint with the Chamber of Commerce and informing the tourism association in Fort Lauderdale (and flagging my credit card). Beware, if the thing starts like that, imagine what can happen once there!

    It appears that it has to do with a caller who tried to make a reservation after Hurricane Wilma struck in late 2006. From what the comment states, this person apparently sent her credit card information to us, which we did not receive, as we did not have phone or internet service due to the hurricane.

    We have never used her credit card information for any purpose as we have never received it. We have never been contacted by any credit card company about her or the use of her credit card.

    She did not book with us. She did not stay with us. We do not know who she is.

    She claims to have called us but we question this as we did not have phone or elecrical service at the time; so she obviously did not speak with anyone from our hotel.

    We take strong exception to her calling one of us "drunk" as none of here drink alcohol.

    It is sad that, as we were beset by the despair of a hurricane, someone should feel compelled to submit this type of review about us.

    Obviously, the Internet is free and there is nothing we can do about it, except ask you to dismiss this rant of an unbalanced individual.

    Great small resort

    from

    My husband and I was scouting for a place to stay a few nights, and for us to know a place to take our guests this summer.

    Angelas Resort is The Place we choose, and to come back to many times in the future,

    We have booked it for 16 people in July as I now know that we will enjoy the atmosfair and closeness to the beach as well as the poolside for all of us to get together. Angela and her staff are very helpful and positive. All smiling and making us feel at home.

    Angelas Resort is a peaceful place, a little away from the strip of fun activites that The Beach Walk offers.

    The kitchen in our room was nice for us to have our own breakfast in the morning as well as fix a light meal one night that we didn't want to go out again!

    I am happy that we found Angela or Gigi as her and my nickname is

    ... or get Spirit to drop it off at the hotel for $20. Much as it pained me to pay Spirit anything by this stage, I just wanted my bag back.

    I called the Everglades tour company and let them know I actually made it, but I was too late to make the morning trip. Luckily they had an afternoon tour scheduled for 1pm so I said I’d go on that one instead. Had an hour or so to kill so checked out the hotel pool (which is across the road from the back of the hotel) ...

    ... cool. Unfortunately could have spent more time here, but we still had a 3&1/2 hour drive from here. We still spent 6 hours here though. Fort Lauderdale for the night then off on the cruise in the morning. A very Happy Mothers Day to all. I'm sure you all got spoilt rotten. Not sure we have internet on the cruise, so if I don't update for a week, that's why. Will be thinking of all you hard workers whilst we sitting back sipping cocktails, cruising the ...

    ... I had to wait for them to prepare your special meal. However the table behind us that came in at the same time waited for their food as long as we did. After dinner we went to the office to claim our missing bag they thought there might be liqueur in the suitcase so they wanted to be inspected we told her that there was a mini we got on our last cruise and she said just take your bag and go. We then headed to the stardust theatre for the main show it is a comedian Jimmy ...

    Today we woke to a drizzly, overcast grey day. So disappointing. Had breakfast in Horizon Court And lingered there over a few cups of coffee. Then we wandered around the ship and did our sightseeing from the inside. Alvin had a nap and I had a vanilla bean latte at the International Cafe, my favourite place on the ship. ...

    ... I can't swim with my knee yet, but got a good tan. For supper we had roast chicken to give us the energy for the week to come. Who knows what it holds for us. I have a few days daywork coming up which is a blessing as I only have $90 left. Had a lovely weekend, but missed people at home. So happy to have all the friends and people here, but some loving and cuddles would be good ...
