We really enjoyed everything during our weeks stay at the Aqua. The staff are all well trained ,exceptionally polite and friendly. Nothing is too much much trouble for them. We ate in the very comfortable and nicely decorated restaurant for all our evening meals which were all perfectly cooked and presented . The hotel is nicely decorated in pastel colours... More

We stayed at the apartment owned by the aqua hotel which is located in the Napier Apartments next door. It provided us with a great quiet base and our own privacy yet we could use the hotels facilities... The team at the Aqua were brilliant with us throughout and the breakfast there is highly recommended. I will definitely stay here... More

Nice atmosphere come and go as you... More

This place is a little gem on Shanklin seafront. We have always been made to feel extremely welcome here from the owners and staff. The food is consistently perfect whilst overlooking the beautiful sea view right on the beach. A highly recommended establishment if you are passing and definitely not one to be missed!

What a lovely place. The waiting staff and bar staff were great. Food was good, hotel was clean and tidy. Wonderful location but the best thing about the hotel is Chris. What a good laugh he is whilst remaining professional at all times. I would return just because of him.

Please don't book this hotel by previous excellent and very good reports and don't be taking in by the wonderful, colourful pictures of both inside and out of the hotel. This place is tired....... Should any young trendy, well don't have to to be young, have £975,000 available, please purchase from the current owners, as they are not doing this... More

We visited The Aqua for an evening meal. The restaurant was not busy, our starters of Olives and leek and potato soup was very nice. We both ordered the Cod and Chips and we were disappointed when they arrived. Both pieces of fish appeared almost identical, and not what we was expecting what a shame. My partner left most of...

Had a great meal and spent the rest of the evening in the very comfortable bar, with their very friendly barman, Chris. Next morning we had a brilliant full english breakfast the went off exploring.

Had a lovely stay at this hotel. Comfy, great food. Superb service. Clean, friendly & great venue. Highly recommend. Panoramic Sea views, well as it's on the beach it would! Sit out on the patio with a glass of wine and take in the sea views.
