This place is a "must stay" in Surfers Paradise! With a bus stop right out side the door, pools and beach access, you couldn't want more. We found Summer and Tracey to be the most friendly, accommodating and helpful duo. No problem is too big or small. Ensure you get a sea facing room, the views are sensational. 26B is... More

We booked an apt online and it was clear there are two types of apartments: Superior with clear images of Ocean View and Standard with City View. When we checked in, we we're given keys to Apt 5D, which had no ocean view. Being polite, we went to the reception to clarify, and the not-friendly woman lied that the difference... More

Hi Mr Sachdev, Thank you for scoring your stay and the unit as being great, however I do apologise for the misunderstanding between our Superior and Standard apartments. To clarify this, our "Superior" apartments are the more modern apartments where the kitchens and bathrooms have been renovated recently, whilst our "Standard" apartments have not. We have Superior and Standard apartments... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Surfers Aquarius for two nights and were very happy with our choice. I can't speak highly enough of the lady that was working when we checked in - we had flown in very early from Bali and I had been sick on the flight and hadn't slept at all. Even though check in...

Great location with the option of a leisurely walk into Surfers Paradise or Broadbeach. Fantastic facilities including indoor and outdoor pools, tennis, gym and direct beach access. BUT if it is windy the balcony balustrades are exceptionally noisy - varies from a hum to a roar - it was loud enough to wake me at night and was irritating during... More

We are truly lucky to be in the best place in the world, in between Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach and RIGHT on the beach.

We loved Aquarius. People may think it is old but it is cared about and being updated and maintained. The room views are to die for, although balconies are narrower and not always fully private the views are amazing and even inside walking around, in the kitchen or layingin bed you feel you are over the water. We went direct... More

Located right on the beach and only 10 minute walk to the heart of Surfer Paradise. The apartments are spacious and the amenities are great. A great place to stay. Suitable for couples, families and a perfect place for a weekend getaway.

So glad you enjoyed your stay, it is a beautiful place to stay as it is halfway between Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach. Just a short stroll either direction, then the direct beach access "really what else could you ask for?" Hopefully we will see you again. More

We had a 2x bedroom apartment with a foldout bed, very large apartment that had everything we needed... Large kitchen, lounge, 2x bathrooms, washer & dryer. very basic furniture, I get the impression these are all privately owned & it depends on the owner how your apartment looks?
