We stayed at Aquarius for 3 nights and were really impressed with the location, 5 mins to shops, bars and the beach.
The rooms were clean, but we were a bit disappointed we had our own room which we paid extra for but it was off an 8 bed dorm which all shared a bathroom.....so there was always a wait, Overall it wasnt bad though.
The reception staff werent as friendly as i expected, things just seemed a bit toio much hassle for them. But having been at wake up! in sydney where nothing is too much trouble and the staff just chat to you all the time maybe i expected too much. The kitchen was not that great only four rings to cook on so was very busy at mealtimes, also not enough crockery or cutlery. Apparently they are doing a new kitchen as part of there rennovations so maybe they realise that its a problem.
Overall I would stay here again but only for its location to everything.
