    Historical Traveler Reviews The Aqua Hotel Fort Lauderdale

    A lot better than what expected


    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


    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


    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


    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


    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


    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


    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


    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

    Wir sind früh auf den Beinen und laufen bis zum Frühstück in unserem Lieblings-Starbucks den Ocean Drive entlang. Morgens lässt es sich hier prima fotografieren; es ist auch kaum was los, es werden eher noch ganz geschäftig die Spuren der letzten Nacht beseitigt. Wie immer in Miami Beach bestaune ich die Art Deco Häuser, kann davon irgendwie gar …

    ... walk the 25 feet from the front trolley to the back trolley? You know the answer to that...don't you?? Nope!! They waved to the driver who had to wait for the front trolley to pull away, and then he advanced the few feet to pick them up. OMG...need I say more. Two more relaxing sea days before our ports of call start up again. Good weather in the forecast...cold drinks in the mini fridge...and a good supply of snacks from the grocery store. All's right with the ...

    ... Canada. As we were packing up to go back we began talking and stayed about 20-25 minutes. They were a very nice couple. Oh well after a relatively short wait we got on a tender boat to head back to the ship. It was a bit choppy and bumpy most of the way back but we all survived. Back on board the Regal Princess after going through security we drop off our beach towels and head up one flight to deck 5 and get some lunch at the international cafe. While we were there I walked over ...

We managed to find the office and sat our there for a while, Escapes next door neighbour must of been curious as to what we were doing as he came out to put something in the bin.
