We stayed at this hotel for a week. 1st things 1st, when you book, it might be under Aquarius for the name. that's also the name on the building and the front gate. They're the same thing. We loved our hotel though. When you first pull onto the road to get to the hotel, you will be brought to some gates (yes, its in a gated community so it's very safe!) and you need to go to the one for Aquarius/Embassy Suites and tell the person your a guest at Aquarius. Then, you drive down the road and pass Embassy and turn right to see a stop arm gate. You need to get the ticket it gives you. Notice, there is a second gate device where it has a sign on it for "insert valid ticket" which is where you will insert that ticket every time you come back to the hotel.
When you check in, they'll need that ticket and you keep it the whole trip. In the end, it's $10 a day to park which you'll pay at check out.
Our room was clean, roomy, and had an amazing balcony to watch the waves from and overlook the area. There is an amazing pool that you share with Embassy, and a pool bar. The front desk will lend you beach towels, so thats a nice treat. They'll give you a card that you need to give them once you need towels. They also give you a card that gives you access to their beach, which is an awesome beach lagoon, very clean and not crowded.
If you need anything, you can call the desk and they'll help you in anyway they can. We wanted to rent jet ski's and they took care of everything.
You have access to Embassy's restaraunt, which had good food, but bad service. You also get to use their gym, and there's a casino and sushi bar across the road. There's a huge golf course available too.
Overall, the whole hotel was amazing. I would use this one again. Hands down, best hotel we seen the whole trip.
