First I would like to say the booking agent, who lives in the north has never been here but was very nice to deal with. 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 Outdated and worn out dirty -goes for all the furniture inside and even out on the balcony.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

Never having been to South Padre Island, Texas I did my research to fine a nice place on the beach. Through Tripadvisor I found the Aquarius Condominiums and saw many that looked very nice. We picked one that was on the beach with a view and on the 8th floor. My family and I reviewed the information and the photos... More

OMG! Condo #605 was absolutely gorgeous! We are still on the road back home, but just had to let anyone who is interested in renting this unit, DO IT!! The view is so amazing! The condo has been totally renovated and is so cute! The owners did a great job! Close to beach and restaurants! Cassi- Dallas, TX

Let me start by saying South Padre is awesome and we had a great time. The only positive thing I can say about this condo is that it has a great view and it appears clean. The condo is smaller than it appears in the pictures. The rooms are so small you can barely walk around the beds. The sofa... More

We stayed in rooms 605 and 606. Both rooms were very cute and actually exceeded our expectations! The view from the balconies in each room are breathtaking. You get your money's worth on that alone. Staff was friendly and helpful. I highly recommend both of these rooms and the Aquarius in general. Family oriented for sure. Short walk to the... More

This was not our first trip to South Padre, but our first stay at the Aquarius. The condo we rented was a little on the small side (compared to what we normally rent) however; it was well appointed and very clean and up-kept. Our view (Room 906) was beach front and gorgeous! The staff (as well as the entire island)... More

Front desk workers were friendly and helpful. Pool was okay, could have been cleaner. We were expecting a much better room for the price we paid. Beds were uncomfortable, fuzzy cable. No patio, only huge glass window, but no privacy because outside guest can see inside. It has a third room up stairs with low ceiling, great for kids, but... More
