The Acqualina is gorgeous, elegant, and yet family friendly. The apartment was perfect for our family of 6. Everyone had plenty of room, and we enjoyed having all the hotel resort amenities available. Our kids enjoyed the basketball court, the pools, and the gelato! We all enjoyed the beach and pool service. The service was impeccable whether it was lunch by the pool or my husband and I enjoying a meal on our own at the bar. The food was delicious. The ail Mulino group sets a high standard for their food service whether in one of their restaurants or by the beach or pool. We loved being close enough to access the Everglades (25 minutes away) or Jungle Island (20 minutes away), but also being able to come back to a quiet hotel. Even on Saturday, it never felt crowded! There were always plenty of chairs on the beach or by the pool for us. The Acqualina is very much an elegant, family friendly resort, but it is well setup for those without kids as well with its adults only pool. The Acqualina is our absolute favorite place to stay when we visit Miami from now on. Al is a wonderful host, and he checked in with us and made himself available whenever we might need his assistance. Thank you for your hospitality and for opening up your beautiful home.
