The title says it all.... the best value for the money in the area. The location is great, the hotel is in great shape as it was renovated 3 years ago. The room was cleaned, well furnished and with all the necessary amenities. Maggie was extremely nice with us and made sure that we were happy with our stay. The... More

Trip Advisor did again!! Based on reviews, we booked a night here on May 16 and it was great!as promised it was only 1 block (& a short block at that) from the beach. It started with our amazingly warm welcome from David White! He not only spoke to me but also engaged my little guys and made sure we... More

Only one night for the six of us (two adults and four teens). We decided to get two room - one for the kids and one for us. All the staff we dealt with were welcoming and helpful. Rooms were ready when we arrived. We were also pleased that a late check out was available when we were there since... More

We based our decision on this particular hotel solely on trip advisor reviews. We were looking for a value priced small hotel near the water and suitable for easy access from the airport and to the cruise terminals. The Aqua met those criteria and was a couple blocks from many eating options. The Atlantic Hotel offered great dining just a... More

The first impression we got of the hotel was Maggie welcoming us with a huge smile and a booming voice at the front door. This hotel is a treasure. Very clean, very quiet. Two small pools but comfortable. Lots of lounge and sitting space around the property- we picked up food and enjoyed it on the 2nd floor terrace. A... More

The resort and rooms aren't really big but it's well maintained and a great price for the location.... More

We recently stayed one night at Aqua after our cruise. We arrived early and Maggie was there to get us checked in and store our luggage. As soon as the previous occupants had checked out, our room was cleaned quickly and we were in. The hotel is comfortable, friendly and a nice change from the big chains. I wish we... More

Our room had a separate bedroom and a kitchen with all the normal utilities. Quite modernly furnished (I recognized a few Ikea furniture). Two pools, pool towels and sunbeds. One block from the ocean and SR A1A. The hotel offered beach chairs to take with you to the beach. Free WiFi but not encrypted so be sure to have the... More
