Overview

Property's staff goes out of their way to attend to their guests' needs
Resort offers a limited number of rooms and suites, meaning space here can be limited, especially in the winter

This spa resort doesn't take any of its five stars for granted, particularly when it comes to delivering first-rate customer service. Recent guests can't help but keep the compliments coming: Travelers say that the resort staff took extra care to personalize each experience. One problem you might face, however, is exclusivity. The Acqualina Resort & Spa on the Beach only has 98 guest rooms and suites, so be sure to book early for an upcoming trip to Sunny Isles Beach. The rooms come with flat-screen TVs and private balconies, as well as double sinks and glass-enclosed showers. Meanwhile, the property also features three in-house eateries, four pools, a spa and beach amenities. What's more, the hotel is part of The Leading Hotels of the World, meaning Leaders Club members have access to perks here. You'll find the Acqualina Resort & Spa in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, about 11 miles north of Miami Beach.

On the heels of a complete room redesign in late 2014, Acqualina continues to raise the bar for Miami beachfront luxury, delivering a fantasy of modern Mediterranean opulence, with sumptuously appointed, striking gray- and silver-accented interiors, and expansive facilities. Oceanfront lawns recall Miami's famed Vizcaya garens; three stylish swimming pools (one adults-only) and a colossal 20,000-square-foot ESPA spa offer opportunities for relaxation; and the famed Il Mulinio New York restaurant is there for excellent dining.

Acqualina, an elegant 51-story Mediterranean-inspired tower that mixes touches of Collins Avenue grooviness with Old World nostalgia, is Sunny Isles Beach's answer to South Beach. Baroque fountains, marble-and–gold-leaf columns, and grand chandeliers in the public areas evoke an opulent Venetian palace.
