When I first booked my vacation at Aqua Beach Resort, I was enchanted by their beautiful brochures. After booking, I was horrified to read several "not-so-good" reviews, so I e-mailed a letter to Aqua Beach expressing my concerns. The management replied timely stating everything they do to ensure a nice vacation - at least they cared enough to respond!
-Beach amenities (umbrellas and boogie boards) were a GREAT bonus;
-Staff was very friendly during check-in, throughout our stay, and at check-out;
-Absolutely WONDERFUL location - walk to boardwalk or beach one minute or less;
-On site cafe - we didn't eat there, but it looked clean and busy;
-Nice outdoor pool, and poolside BBQ grills - we cooked steak dinner one night!
-Not what I would call a resort ... more like a motel with additional ammenities;
-Upon arrival, the room smelled like Lysol - apparently over sprayed to cover up the musty smell that older coastal motels usually get;
-Very old decor and furnishings, while I don't think they were dirty, just really old;
-First morning we didn't have hot water. We called down to the front desk, and they said that they'd send somebody right up. By the time he arrived, the water was hot;
-Cheap, limited toiletries
OVERALL - the brochures may be a bit misleading, but my theory is, "If you want a Hilton, stay at a Hiton"
Aqua Beach is neither the nicest nor worst place I've stayed. Would I stay there again? Perhaps, but there are a lot of other available choices in Wildwood. I would choose Aqua Beach over a small motel any day, however, I might prefer a larger, more upscale hotel.
I'd like to add that overall, we really had a GREAT vacation!
