      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

      ... the hall!!! Later some foreign man put us on trolleys and took us to a deep, dark cold place. Suddenly next morning we all were collected up by our colour coded labels and taken out into sunlight. I was surprised how hot it was. First I enjoyed the fork lift ride and being arranged by colours in a huge hall but then my handle drooped. Those dogs appeared again. I knew I had nothing to worry about as I had no bones packed. But they came sniffing about ...

      BACK TO MIAMI

      Our noon flight to Miami was two hours late. As we had left the hotel by 9:30 and arrived at Jose Marti International Airport by 10, we had plenty of time to clear immigration, customs and security, for long good-byes and promises to stay in touch and for shopping for last minute trinkets, coffee and chocolate.

      Passport Control for the Miami Airport is in Orlando-at least that's what it felt like-the walk from the plane was long and winding, only two short ...

      In the afternoon we headed to the International Swimming Hall of Fame. Built in 1965, it is a world class showcase for swimming with training facilities, museum ...

      ... always such a treat :) This morning we got up and Ellen trained me to be a perfect stew. It was a day's work, so happy to have Ellen here! I took notes and watched and learned. The owner of the boat phoned me and we also had a good chat, he will phone one of my au pair references tomorrow and will then hopefully get an answer. I went home at about 5 and took a nice, long relaxing bath. Nicole and Kate have left :( All us housemates had a braai. Holding thumbs for ...
