Acqualina Resort & Spa has the distinction of being a spacious resort within easy driving distance of both the Miami and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International airports. This Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star resort offers a distinct European feel, with a Mediterranean villa décor and terraces where you can soak up the ocean or Intracoastal views, and its Il Mulino New York restaurant dishes up hearty, Italian cuisine with old school service. The Sunny Isles location means you’ll be closer to the beach than in most South Beach hotels (if not quite in the middle of bustling nightlife), with a less crowded and more serene seaside property. Definitely feel free to bring the family, too, for at the resort you’ll find a separate family friendly pool and kids' club for the little ones to enjoy. Acqualina Resort & Spa also boasts the amazing Acqualina Spa by ESPA, whose facilities include a gorgeous tiled steam room, sauna and experience showers, all of which are complimentary for hotel guests to use even if you’re not booking a treatment. And any automobile enthusiast will appreciate the array of luxury cars parked in the resort’s porte-cochère, which is quite a spectacle, even in this high-rolling stretch of South Florida.
