We stayed in a newly refurbished room. Staff were friendly especially Jen the receptionist. We had daily room service and room was very clean. View from 12th floor was amazing. Spend most nights with going to sleep with balcony doors open listening to waves. Great position. We had just over two weeks there and will be back.

My husband and I stayed at Aquarius on the Beach for 3 nights in January - we got a great rate online and thought the property was great value for money. The location was fantastic, balcony overlooking Magnetic Island, restaurants nearby, swimming enclosure out the front and right on the esplanade. We found the room to be big enough for... More

We decided to stay close to beach and get this as a base to set up my daughter for her studies at JCU. We specifically chose a place with wifi, because we needed to search accommodation options, search for vehicles, places and eating places. Well!!!!! Two days into our stay wifi stopped working. Management were disinterested and truly unprofessional in... More

Room was average but very tired. It had everything you would need. TV, bed, bathroom, iron, etc. even sink & fridge. However the curtain didn't cover the window so street light and Qld early sun meant my room was lite up all night. The people in the room next to me played the tv blaring until very late in the...

Overall, location is just great. It is situated next to the sea. The Strand offers great dining options and great for walks and the gym is free for clients (check with hotel). A definite choice when I am up in Townsville. Aquarius is also a short ride from the airport, and a short walk from the town centre.

We stayed in this hotel 2nights on december 2014, right after Christmas. Very nice position, directly in front of the ocean with a small but nice balcony. Far 15 minutes walking from magnetic island ferry, 1 hour from castle hill top, 20 minutes from the CBD. Forniture quite old, but room was clean. And staff nice and helpful. The only... More
