We stayed in #804 at the Aquarius from May 14 to May 21. The view from the 8th floor balcony is absolutely sensational. Right on that fabulous beach, overlooking the pool too. A once in a lifetime opportunity to live for a week in a million dollar location. And at such an affordable rate, we weren't expecting luxury. That said, it's a shame the owner of this unit isn't willing to maintain such a wonderful property in better condition. Stains on curtains, a sofa so badly stained with either blood or red wine, we wouldn't sit on it. Rust on the fridge door, more rust in the bathroom and paint peeling off the walls. It wasn't dirty, just needs a bit more TLC.
I emailed the owner with a question via the VRBO site, but never received a response. I had to call the PI Rental office a few days later to have my question answered.
The Aquarius building staff were ok, though a smile and eye contact would go a long way, the office staff very friendly and chatty, they were great.
If we return, we'd likely stay at the Aquarius again for its location, but we might try a different unit. But my oh my, that view and the roar of the waves, just sensational.
