“Comming back 2013 and bringing more friends and family”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

My husband and I went for labor day weekend/ special (8/31/12-9/2/12) over all it was great...Weather was great we stayed in a bimini room. Renovated and updated... it was beautiful... definitely not misleading. Room was spacious enough, flat screen, housekeeping was good.. pool area clean and nice, HATED that the pool closed early... Should at least be open til 11pm!!! the aqua cafe such great food right on site!!! Wonderful package s bit pricey but alot of things INCLUDED like food, choices for different activities to choose from on boardwalk(moreys piers, boat ride to see the dolphins etc. You pick between several choices which one is best for you) After reading other reviews Im still going back because we had a great 3days... Hoping to make it a tradition... I hope each time is a great as the first...

This will be our 5th Beach Blast and the 3rd time we are staying at Aqua Beach Resort. We will continue to stay here year after year. We have recommended this hotel to many others tand they have taken our advice and are now staying at here as well. Rooms are updated, staff is friendly, and they accomodate all our needs.

I was at the Aqua Beach in mid-September 2012. The weather was still great. The water was still warm enough for swimming. The water was even warmer than the ocean temperature in June. In September there are no crowds anywhere which is a blessing. Some of the boardwalk shops aren't open anymore and some have fewer opened hours. We stayed in what appeared to be a newly renovated section on the side with ocean view. Our room was a typically sized motel room with a small kitchenette including a few stove burners and refrigerator. The rooms were very clean. The pool was still open and the water was heated. The rooftop has been converted to a nice relaxing area with hammocks and chairs to view the beach and get more sun if desired. The motel is right on the beach.

The restaurant/snackbar which is on the premises, but independently run, has decent prices for breakfast and lunch. There is still plenty to do in Wildwood even in September.

I would not hesitate to stay at this resort again.

Room Tip: Stay in a room on the outside of the resort with a view of the ocean.

This place is our family's favorite to stay in Wildwood. It's been recently renovated, and is probably one of the most "modern" places to stay on the island. Everything is clean, thank goodness. We stayed in the apartments because we have 9 people, and there was plenty of room for all. Washer and dryer were IN the room, which is a luxury for sure. We had a nice view on the balcony, we made use of the kitchen quite a bit, and the hotel has a nice location in the Crest. It's a short hike to the boardwalk, so this is also probably the most walking we've ever had to do, but the accommodations are worth it. There are multiple pools we had access to, which the kids loved. We'd love to stay here very year, the only issue we have is the cost. It can definitely be pricey compared to other places on the island. What we paid for 3-4 days would have put us up somewhere else for a week. But here you definitely get what you pay for, so if you can save up for it, no other hotel compares!

Those of you who read my previous review of the Singapore Motel in Wildwood Crest already know what I thought of that adventure and visit to Wildwood Crest. But being the optimists we are we returned to the Crest 9/29 to 10/02 2012 to give it another chance and to not let our last taste of the destination be what was left after the Singapore. We stayed at the Aqua Beach Resort in an Ocean Front room. There were a good number of guests there on Saturday night due to the Italian Festival in town, but the hotel was still quiet. The contrast of this property to our previous stay could not have been more extreme. The room was well appointed, clean, spacious, and just downright pleasant. The only drawback is like all of the older motels anywhere the "balcony" doubles as the walkway so no private balcony to leave the door open at night (I know - shouldn't do that even with a private balcony), but it's really no problem as the ocean is now so far from the hotel that one can't hear the ocean anyways. But the view is impecable. And the pool/hot tub area is apparently quite new and very pleasant. The bottom line is it's as nice a "shore" hotel as one will find these days. It's a bit pricey especially in high season, but what isn't these days. It's not so bad when the product is at least somewhat worth the price. Don't be afraid to use this property.

Room Tip: Spend the extra couple of dollars and get the ocean front location. The view is worth it.

Stayed in a renovated Cays room which faces the pool. Inexpensive (89) per night for a hotel right on the beach. Desk staff were welcoming and helpful.Great rooftop deck with hammocks. Nice pool area. Candles burning in lobby a nice warm touch.Would definitely stay again.
