Went here and was disgusted. Old, damp smelling room that still had towels on the floor from the previous guests. Went to reception to tell them and the old crone Denise was just a fat cow about it. Rude and made me wait over 3 hours for the room to be cleaned, and they still did a crap job. Kitchen... More

Stayed in room 20A. Excellent views of the ocean, clean spacious rooms. Security staff at night was quite helpful when we arrived after hours. Walking distance to Surfers however a bit too far with little ones. Petrol station, grocery store, bottle shop and a great pizza place around the corner for all essentials when you can't get to anything else.... More

Very happy with the appartment. We were in 8C. 270 degree views however being so low they are interupted by nearby buildings. Good clean pools, spas, sauna and steam room. Direct access to the beach right between two lifesaving setups. Approximately 1km walk to Cavill Ave by beach or esplanade. There is still some construction work ongoing but it didn't... More

This apartment building has a Lovely central location with a picture perfect walk of 15mins to Caville Ave along the beach. It has absolute beach frontage. Public transport buses are at your front door taking you to many of the popular tourist destinations.

Nice surprise. Roomy & airy apartment, with corner, so you get views of city & ocean. No wifi, for that you need to be at reception. Clean pools & spa. Pvt access to beach. between surfers & broadbeach, so not too noisy.

The Aquarius is having the balcony rails replaced at the moment, so they are offering cheaper accomodation. The unit we had 15B was beautiful. Great furnture, well looked after and of-course a great view of the beach and surroundings. Once the maintenance has finished, which will be soon, it will be great to stay at. Presently their is a little... More

We were initially a bit anxious about what to expect as some of the earlier reviews regarding the renovations being made were a tad negative HOWEVER we need not have worried. Our apartment was on the 35th floor with magnificent sea views from our lounge room and kitchen followed around to views across the city into the hinterland beyond from... More
