Acqualina Resort

Family-friendly, spa, off the beaten path

17875 Collins Avenue, Sunny Isles Beach 33160


See Website

At a Glance

Located between Miami and Palm Beach, and a short drive from the Ft. Lauderdale airport, Acqualina Resort boasts lots of amenities for spoiled families.


Acqualina's wide beach, three swimming pools (one is adults only for those traveling without children) and active kid’s club plus babysitting service will keep the little ones happy, while parents will love the indulgent ESPA, luxurious rooms and seamless service. Should sun and sea get tedious, head to the nearby Bal Harbor Shops for serious retail therapy; the hotel offers a free shuttle throughout the day.

The only drawback is a relative dearth in dining options. As the property is located on Sunny Isles, there aren't many excellent cuisine establishments nearby, but the three outlets on the property, including Il Mulino, are excellent.

Who Should Stay

Families who want the amenities of a big resort—kids' club, destination spa, multiple pools and restaurants—without traveling too far from South Beach, will like the Acqualina, which sits a short drive north of Bal Harbour.
