Acqualina Resort & Spa on the Beach in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida
Acqualina Resort & Spa on the Beach picked an ideal location to pitch its bright red beach loungers and cozy hammocks. Fashion types will delight in the proximity of the Bal Harbour Shops and Aventura Mall, while guests who crave Miami Beach’s neon lights can easily get their nightly fix. The biggest temptation, however, is right at the resort – four pools, including an adults-only oasis flanked by cabanas, offer tranquility that can only be topped by a visit to the Finnish saunas and ice fountains at the award-winning spa.
Claim your shaded lounge chair on a quiet, sugary beach early and fall promptly back to sleep. The sun warms you to the core. Drift in crystal-clear Atlantic water and walk back through lush gardens, stopping to sip on a pineapple-mango smoothie by the pool. Take an afternoon drive to explore Miami’s Art Deco district and return for a plate of rigatoni worth writing home about – to your New York friends still waiting for reservations.

Reviews for Acqualina Resort & Spa on the Beach
Dear Traveler, My loved one and just returned from three wonderful days and nights at the Acqualina Resort and Spa. In 2017, this hotel received so many positive reviews from Travel and Leisure to Trip Advisor, as an avid traveler, I was compelled to see for myself what all the buzz was about. This ocean front Mediterranean Mansion is so beautifully appointed, upon arrival one immediately feels welcomed into the fold of the manor born. The hotel is run under the management of Mr. Christof Pignet who clearly sets the bar for luxury as a necessity. The philosophy of this hotel is to never say to "No" to its guests. The Acqualina Resort and Spa is truly a six star experience. The entire hotel and spa staff are helpful, charming and engage with their guests. Creating a memorable and wonderful stay is the main objective reached by all. In fact, one never has to leave the grounds. I highly and sincerely recommend you visit this oasis. I have already become a devoted, loyal and sure to be frequent guest. Safe Travels, AnthonyVNYC 21

First impression: Service - wow At check in you are offered champagne, bellini or a few types of water. The f ront desk person gives you a tour of the property & walks you to your room. Rooms: We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite. Just beautiful. There is a good size balcony with doors from the living room & the bedroom. There are 1.5 baths, a full kitchen with wolf oven & sub zero frig. The frig was stocked with beer, wine, soda & juice available for purchase. They also had Several bottles of liquor & wine on the kitchen cabinet (also available for purchase). The kitchen has a bar with stools & a nice 4 person dining table. There is a living room with a pull out sofa & an office that has a Day bed type set up where the office could be an extra bed. The main bathroom is very large. The vanity has 2 sinks. Separate shower With a rain shower head that is surprisingly powerful. It also has a hand shower head. Be careful with that because our friends accidentally had it spray outside onto the floor because they werenâ€™t careful with direction it was pointed. There is also a jetted tub with a rubber ducky. The bed is VERY comfortable. We slept great here. The hotel also has provides complimentary shoe shine available. Beach/pools: We spent time at the adult pool & the beach. The pool staff will set up chairs & bring a pitcher of water. They roll up a towel to create a headrest on the chairs which is quite comfortable. The pools are heated to 87 degrees so they feel great and are not cold at all when you get in. The water temp is â€śjust rightâ€ť. For you fellow sun worshippers, The pools lose sun around 2 or so as the resort buildings block out the sun. The beach gets sun a little longer. We loved that the pools are very close to the beach - for example when we were laying out at the beach we would go get in the pool to cool off & it wasnâ€™t a long walk. Costa Vida: There are several patio type grouping of seats on grass just at the edge of the beach in front of Costa Vida. We Ordered cocktails & a snack. The server automatically brought water without us asking for it. He also brought extra sauce for th calamari without being asked. Loved how they anticipated what you may ask for. We also had very good hamburgers on the beach one day. The portions are generous. The shrimp cocktail is like a prawn cocktail. The shrimp are very large. Il Millino breakfast buffet: very nice. Lots of items to choose from. Some of which include: beautiful fruit, meats & cheeses. An omelette station & will also cook eggs any way you like them. The breakfast potatoes are very yummy. Great bacon and they have 2 types of sausage. They have made to order pancakes - including chocolate chip & banana. Itâ€™s expensive but was very good. Books: the Aqualina has a â€śbedside reading programâ€ť where they invite you to enjoy a selection of complementary books to read during your stay or to take home to share with others. I brought 2 books home - one was a childrenâ€™s book & one was an adult book that I saw many other guests reading at the pool. Cool idea! Concierge: The concierge team is very friendly & helpful. It seems like one of them is ALWAYS there. They even found a few coolers we could borrow to keep our beers cold while we went to a dolphins game. This is a very family oriented resort but can also be nice for people with kids. There was a noticeable amount of guests speaking foreign languages. Two examples of great service from the pool staff. We asked Aris, a server, if they served yeungling. They didnâ€™t at the resort but a few days later Aris went & got some Yeungling & brought it to our room. Another example is from Sarah, who set up our chairs one morning. We shared that we were from Denver in town for the Dolphins game vs the Broncos. She told us her grandparents lived in a Denver suburb & that she was also a bronco fan & Champ Bailey was her fave bronco. We also told her that we sometimes use the term Schampions (like champions) when referring to wins in a game. Later in our visit, in our room we find a wooden plaque shaped like a football with â€śSchampions of Aqualinaâ€ť written on it along w a bronco picture & a very gracious note saying Sarah appreciated meeting people from Denver. Thatâ€™s going the extra mile. If you are looking for nightlife this is NOT the resort for you. If you want a relaxing experience the Acqualina fits the bill. The only negative we experienced was Spotty WiFi & only 1 or 2 bars on AT&T cell phones. Due to the price we considered this a splurge but after our experience we would considering coming back. Restaurants: highly recommend Timo across the street.
It is true that it comes with a high price, but the property is first rate in every way. Great beach access and a great set of heated pools. The interior of the building is done in a luxurious way that is a departure from the usual Miami minimalist style and gives it a warm feel. The staff was spot on in getting whatever you needed at the pool or beach. One other nice thing is that the Acqualina has a great location, about equally distant between Miami and Fort Lauderdale making it easy to go to either place to see the sights or go to the restaurants there.

Upon arrival, we were politely greeted and our bags were whisked away. We received a champagne welcome and a cold lavender towel. The check in staff was amazing. Our room was spectacular! We reserved the One Bedroom ocean front suite. There was an expansive bathroom, kitchen, living room, and an office/den with a day bed. We had lots of room for the crib and the baby had her own space. I didn't think that you could get family resort and luxury together, but they proved me wrong. The kids club is great. They have many activities for the little ones 5 and up. There is a zero entry pool which is perfect for my 1 year old. Our bed was very comfortable and so were the pillows. The view was incredible and we slept with the doors open to hear the waves. It was very soothing and relaxing....well, as relaxing as a vacation with a one year old can be. I didn't get a chance to check out the gym like i usually do or the spa but hopefully, we can do that next time if we have help.

My family and I visited the Aqualina to celebrate my husbandâ€™s birthday. Upon arrival the first thing we noticed was the courteousness of all the staff from the bell hop to the front desk. The service was top notch. As for the room they are above average size with tons of room to lounge around. We were traveling with our 8 month old son and the hotel Baby proofed the room, provided a crib, diaper genie, high chair and play pen. As for the Aqualina itself it is an amazing beach front property that is family friendly and immaculately maintained. We enjoyed our visit very much the only reason I did not give the hotel 5 stars was because we did have issues with our AC unit both nights. The night manager who handles the situation was very kind and offered for us to move rooms which we chose not to and brought us a fan. He also gave us a credit back for the inconvenience. Lastly I gave the hotel 4 stars instead of 5 is because I enjoy staying in nice hotels and do not mind paying extra to do so, but I find it ludicrous that 2 small black coffees w Splenda are $15.00. It felt like armed robbery.
