Stayed on floor 20 in a tired but very spacious apartment - undergoing renovations so completely blocks the view. Balconies unsafe to be on. Reception staff could be more professional . Views by day and night stunning but certainly wouldn't return to this complex.

Advertisement said that the place had air conditioning and a dishwasher and when we got here we found out that it doesn't. The room was tired looking. Glad we are only here for a couple of days. nice veiw from the lounge room. we got a room on the 9th floor. the tv could be bigger. Nothing that a little... More

Spent two nights at this motel in a two bedroom apartment, it is very quiet being set back from the main road and with absolute beach frontage. Facilities are great and the reception staff wonderful to deal with and very helpful. Will definitely return for weekends or longer stays

One of my favourite places to have stayed when visiting the gold coast. Really warm pool inside and hot spa. Love the view of the city lights from our room and no roads to cross if you want to go to the beach. Staff are great. Plenty of space in the two bedroom apartment.

We've just returned from a super week at Aquarius. Views are stunning and staff helpful and friendly - Kara is great. We stayed in a refurbished room, which really was close to five star. it was huge and surpassed our expectations. However, not all apartments are created equal - some of the original apartments are tired (not sure what the... More

Currently staying at Surfers Aquarius and we were welcomed with a room upgrade, from a one bedroom suite to a two bedroom apartment, level 37 with amazing views up and down the beach, over the Gold Coast City lights and out to the hinterland. The staff have been really friendly and very helpful. The building is currently undergoing exterior maintenance... More

We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment on the 31st floor. Very spacious and comfortable and it was luxury at an affordable price with everything you need. Great location and right on the beach, we were halfway between Surfers and Broadbeach, so just a short walk up the beach to either Surfers or Broadbeach and with bus stop right... More

We have stayed at Aquarius a number of times and recently stayed again with our two young boys. The location is fantastic, an easy walk to all amenities and very central. It is right on the beach and the views are incredible. The apartment was clean, and well designed for a family, and the staff are very friendly and helpful.... More

We stayed here with 4 other families over the Xmas break. We were given a room directly facing the beach on the 30th floor. No words could describe the view we saw every day and the amazing sunrises! Although the room was not a renovated room, it was very clean, neat, lots of space & comfortable. Everything we needed was... More

We stayed for three nights in November and were given a two-bedroom apartment on a high floor. The condition and interior décor of this unit was top notch, from the wall fixtures to the furniture. No expense was spared and we couldn't believe our luck when we walked in. We could live there permanently! The extra long balcony had a... More
