Considering the high standards of this beautiful hotel, the entrance lobby, despite its fairly grand furnishings, does not reflect the grandeur and surprisingly unstuffy luxury that you will find beyond

Everything about this resort is the finest quality from the professional yet friendly nature of the staff through to the facilities on offer and the superb accommodations.

They have taken families to heart here. Knowing that having children does not mean the parents should have to compromise on a luxurious environment they have ensured that everyone is well taken care of. The one bedroom suites, complete with a Den to comfortably accommodate 2 children so you don’t need to use the lounge for sleeping, through to the full kitchen and dining area, the suites were made for families. There is a pool where children are encouraged to enjoy, splash and play in and the children’s club offers a cabana there with shade and toys to enjoy. The children’s club here is complimentary too for children aged 5 to 12 years and children are encouraged to get out and enjoy the beach, pool and the little football pitch set on one of the lawns. It the little ones get hungry, treat them to a trip to the gelaterie for ice cream and sweet goodies.

For the adults there is still plenty to enjoy and inspire. Two further pools (one is restricted to adults only) as well as a wonderful spa with it’s own plunge pool and Jacuzzis. Lounger and hammock strewn lawns spill on to the beautiful beach which offers further loungers and of course, a daily beach service. Take lunch at the poolside restaurant or in the main restaurant and in the evening, enjoy fine dining as well.

Sunny Isles is a much sleepier, residential area of North Miami Beach. Away from the frenzy and hubbub of south Beach it offers a more civilized and relaxed vacation spot yet should you wish to dip your toe into Miami life, it is still only 30 minutes drive away.

The service and experience of the Acqualina is of the highest standards. The impeccable staff, facilities and accommodations ensure even the most discerning guest will feel pampered and looked after


Despite the tallness of the building, there are only 4-5 rooms per floor and all have balconies with either views across to the city or out to the ocean.

Each floor offers Deluxe Rooms and One Bedroom Suites in traditional yet luxurious style and newly renovated

Deluxe Rooms are huge and feature a King Bed and a sleeper sofa as well as an oversized bathroom and balcony.

One Bedroom Suites offer a separate lounge and full kitchen as well as dining area. A bedroom with King bed and a large bathroom. Most of the suites also offer a "den" room which will also accommodate two children.

All rooms and suites offer superb amenities including flat screen TV's (hidden at the end of the bed in Deluxe rooms) opulent furnishings, huge bathrooms with separate shower and bathtub, mini bar, coffee maker, hairdryers, WiFi access and furnished balconies.


Children are made very welcome and the accommodations lend themselves favourably toward family groups.

There is a complimentary children's club and marine-biology based program for children aged 5 - 12 years which is led by certified professionals. There is a daily program of activities which ensures they get out and about as well as having time inside the club. There is a special designated area of the beach for children to play in with buckets and spades, cabanas by the pool with children's seating and toys in and even a soccer pitch.

Babysitting and nanny services are also available at additional charge.


3 swimming pools. One with private cabanas for hire including a special children's cabana, one adult's only and one family friendly pool. Beach service and complimentary sun loungers and umbrellas on the beach as well as chairs and hammocks in the lawned area in between the hotel and beach.

The beautiful ESPA spa offers complimentary access to thermal areas including a Crystal steam room, experience showers, Finnish spa, relaxation lounges and a jacuzzi with Roman waterfall.

There is also a gym, 2 restaurants and 1 gelaterie/delicatessen, concierge services, in room dining, children's club and soccer pitch.

When to go

Florida is a year-round destination with balmy winters, but summers can be hot and humid. The best time to visit Florida is between March and May and in December when it is warm and sunny, before the weather begins to get too hot. Hurricanes and other less serious tropical storms can strike Florida any time in the summer up to the end of November, however the risk is greatest between August and October.
