I gave this rental 1 star because of the beach access. Our condo was awful. First of all, the elevators are breaking down. Second, the pots and pans were disgusting to cook on. The teflon was peeling off. There were also only 4 forks in a room that sleeps six. I would agree with a previous reviewer who said it... More

We rented condo 607 for 6 days. Check-in was so fast and simple and the staff very friendly. Our condo was clean and had everything that you would want for the stay. The view is fantastic - gulf is right in front AND both bedrooms have balconies also that has views! We will be back for sure!!!

Let me break this down for you guys - I worked in hotels for 5 years during college and I have to say these guys know nothing of hospitality. •The front gate mic didn't work so I was forced to jump the gate in order to check in •The front gate gentlemen was super rude and heckled me for jumping...

We took a high school band down there for a weekend and had about 10 condos total. We stayed in 302 and 303 and they were awesome. Beautifully decorated, very well stocked, just a wonderful place to stay. Not all of the condos were that nice. Some were spartan and some were down right nasty. The complex itself is nice,... More

Aquarius is a great place which was very secure and safe and clean. The condo was just renovated and it's so modern. The space is about right for us but would be crowded with five or six adults. We felt a sense of peace and relaxation from the time we went into the condo. The views of the island, bay... More

Arrived on a Sat., toaster broken, pizza pan dirty and rusted, lite bulbs out, but all those things were taken care of on Monday, Tuesday the heat and a/c was broken but is being worked... More

We loved our stay at Aquarius - yes, the condos are rather small but big enough for what we wanted. Right on the beach with great views. The grounds are clean. We stayed in 901 and it was almost entirely renovated. In talking with others around the hot tub, not all the units have been remodeled or updated furniture recently... More

Like many other reviewers have mentioned on here, the photos for the Aquarius units seem to be really misleading. Bottom line -- I wouldn't recommend that a friend stay here unless it was the only place available in their budget range. Perhaps there are some units in the building that are nicer; however, overall, the whole building just seems run... More

The first thing we noticed when we walked in were the horrible patch jobs on the front door on the inside. The walls are dirty with poor patch jobs. Outdated and worn out dirty -goes for all the furniture inside and even out on the balcony. There was no place to be comfortable in this unit. The bed was uncomfortable... More
