My girlfriend and I needed a new place to stay for our annual trip to FL this year - and chose the Aquarius. The motel is older but very well kept up and very clean. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. The beach is close and secluded. We stayed in a second floor efficiency with a balcony that overlooked the beach and ocean (which is a prerequisite of ours). How great it was to sit there and watch and hear the ocean - not to mention the sunrises. It was heaven!!! We also were above a deck area where other guests gathered and loudly partied and smoked cigars and cigarettes - the smell of which was nauseating. We landed up having to close our window and balcony door to keep the smell from drifting in. It also would have been a nice consideration if we had been told about the "no see um" bugs down there - warned to bring bug repellent. By the time I left I had several areas of annoying itchy bites - and even after coming home I've kept breaking out in itchy rashes caused by these bugs that have resulted in miserable sleepless nights. (There are non-itching projects to help). I'm home 4 days now and finally think the worse is over. This, of course, is not the manager's fault - but a warning would have been nice at check in to prepare us. Nevertheless it is a very nice and calming place worthy of someone looking for peace and quiet.
