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.

I don't know how a hotel of this size manages to treat guests as family. From the moment you arrive, everyone is happy to see you. The welcome you receive is amazing and the smiles everyone has on their faces are infectious. From the moment you arrive, you know your somewhere special. The owner of the Acqualina, must really care about his guests, because the service that you receive is more than what would be satisfactory. It is above and beyond great. Carly was so welcoming and the first of the staff we met, she gave us a tour of the hotel and was passionate about the property, which added to our excitement of our stay. She made us feel so welcome that we left for her and the staff a big box of chocolates we had brought from the uk. Our room wasn't one of the more expensive rooms, but it was stunning neverless. It was very clean and was perfect. Free books to read or even take home were available in our room, this was quite a nice touch. Big tv, jacuzzi bath and a huge shower all added to the luxury of what the Acqualina offers. If you want to pamper yourself, then this is the place to stay. Sitting on one of the bright red sofa's at the edge of the beach was so relaxing. I always like to talk to staff and try to make sure they know how appreciative of the service we have received, and that we are grateful for making our stay great. The manager on duty was a guy called Nelson Perez (who's name i asked for the next day at reception so I could mention him in this review). Nelson was great, looked after my family very well and is obviously one of the assets to making the Acqualina amazing. Even a guy called Sonny, who manned the lifts was such a nice guy. We spoke for about 15 mins and he loved working for the resort. The feeling you get from the staff is that they love working here and as a guest and business owner I understand who difficult it is to get the right staff, but they have managed to do that. I cannot fault anything at all at the Acqualina. If you work hard and deserve a treat then this is the place to go, wether you arrive in a Rolls Royce or turn up in a crappy Toyota rental (that didn't even have a remote control) as i did, you will still be treated the same, you will still be welcomed as friends to the Acqualina.

We arrived Saturday the 16th dec. We had an awful flight 10 and a half hours. Within an hour of being here in the hotel my stress levels completely dropped. We were greeted by such lovely people. Valet parking.. receptionist... down to the managers and cleaners... all the staff were so friendly and welcoming. Very helpful too. Our room is stunning. 703a. It didnt have a beachfront view but honestly we did not care. Our only complaint was the smell coming from the room opposite. Our daughter has CHD and i did not appreciate it at all. However the staff that came up to turn down our beds had let the managers know. The following morning the same smell again. Really not happy about it but i cant not give this place 5 stars. Very clean rooms. Very comfortable beds. Very modern and spacious. Carly gave us a tour after greeting us with Bellinis. I cannot stress enough about all of the staff we came across. The guy who gave us our bands to go on the beach.. the guys setting the beach up for everyone. The bellboy. The cleaners. The guy at the lift. Everyone we spoke to clearly loved their jobs and had worked here for more than 2 years. We went for a meal in the beautiful Italian restaurant which was wonderful. They catered to my daughter so well. Again all of the staff there were amazing as well as the food. Highly recommend the lamb chops. This is now our go too place in Miami. I cannot wait to come back. Thank you to you all for such a relaxing amazing time. This has to be our favourite hotel in the world right now. Gonna be very very hard to beat this. To the owner... well done. Your staff truly must do you proud. As a business owner myself who rely on staff also, you sir have a great team. Every single one of them.

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 weren’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 “just right”. 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 wasn’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. It’s expensive but was very good. Books: the Aqualina has a “bedside reading program” 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 children’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 didn’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 “Schampions of Aqualina” written on it along w a bronco picture & a very gracious note saying Sarah appreciated meeting people from Denver. That’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.
