... s when we need to dine at 9pm. That said, obviously getting on the boat a second time isn't as exciting. Tonight we tried the Japanese restaurant, Izumi and surprisingly it was very good. Fish was very fresh although I'm sure the best day to eat here is today, the first day, when all the fish is brought onboard. We did notice that nearly all the patrons are senior staff of the ship which is a good sign ...
... after that.
My first mission was to get a phone number. Sarah and I missioned to a couple of places but the phone I have is apparently too old to use, so I have to go back to the shops later and buy a new one. We also went to the grocery store which is AWESOME! $32 later and I have enough groceries for the next couple of days…and a bottle of vodka :P
Tomorrow is Easter Sunday so everything will be closed. That’ll give me ...
... a while it transpired that Mr Hoick was elsewhere and his replacement was waiting outside entrance 3 for me. Bloody good job I had a cell phone then, or I'd still be there.

... I don’t have any groups I can seat you with, so we’ll have to give you a table of your own.” Bummer. Dining alone sucks – probably the biggest negative of cruising solo. I placed my order, then went up to my cabin to grab my Zune so I could watch a video while eating. Nothing worse than just sitting there staring into space, looking like a loser who has no one to eat with! I guess I’ll need to show up for dinner earlier from now on so I can ...

As I am a speed reader, I quickly found the word "bar" on the directory of decks and set sail north (up) to Deck 14 – see I’m getting the hang of this sailing lark. It was roasting on deck but I managed to stagger up to a smiley barman and croak “Bud please”. I politely refused a glass and just as the bottle touched my lips ...

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.
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.

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!
