                                                          Amazing view - Condo itself needs a lot of TLC!

                                                          Andrea D.

                                                          Let us start with the positives. The rental office (SPI Rentals) was great! They were prompt, convenient, and friendly. They are open 24 hours, which allows for ease of check-in and check-out. The Aquarius front desk staff were also very nice and helpful. The Aquarius condo property was pretty clean and well kept. That is saying something because we were staying there Spring Break! The condo unit we stayed in was clean and has the most AMAZING view of the Gulf!

                                                          Okay, so onto the negatives. Even though the unit was clean it is SUPER old and run down. The bathroom had paint peeling from all corners and is need of a serious remodel. The sleeper sofa was not even useable as a bed because it was so uncomfortable, the trundle beds were okay, and the only real bed in the bedroom is small (a double not a queen) was also not in good condition. All items in the condo were functional for sure but this place really needs some TLC by the owners. We equated it to a Motel 6 experience at a premium price! Luckily, the weather was pretty good while we were there and we didn't have to spend a lot of time in the condo. The weather and the view barely saved our vacation! Unfortunately, I would not recommend this

                                                          place to stay! It was a really big disappointment for me and my family.

                                                          not the greatest

                                                          Barb A.

                                                          Location was perfect. Condo left a bit to be desired....seriously needs a big update. Sparse supplies.

                                                          Perfect Getaway Over Thanksgiving Holiday

                                                          Chelsea P.

                                                          My fiance and I truly enjoyed our stay in this condo. The ocean views were stunning, and we loved waking up to that view every day. You can't beat a wrap around balcony, either. The private entry and short walk to the beach was perfect as well. The condo was very clean, exactly as pictured on the site. It was spacious for the two us (surely would fit 4 comfortably). The kitchen was a great size--we managed to have a full Thanksgiving dinner. The appliances were new as well and worked great for cooking our big dinner. We also really appreciated the shower pressure too! We will definitely be returning and staying in this property when it's available.

                                                          I also enjoyed the fact that the Aquarius had a front desk manager and that the entry to the rooms was indoor, rather than motel style like many of the other condos on the island.

                                                          All around awesome experience, no complaints. We have already recommended this condo to friends, and will be returning :). Only suggestion would be to add an eye-hole to the door, even though it's a very safe property it is still nice to know that you can peek out the door if someone was to knock.

                                                          Thanks for sharing your condo with us!

                                                          Ranae T.

                                                          The condo was exactly as advertised. We visited in late September and practically had the beach to our self. The condo was clean and well stocked. We will definitely be back.

                                                          Very good

                                                          Geetha R.

                                                          We had a fantastic view from the room and enjoyed every bit of it. We are a family of 4 and the apartment size was good. The trundle bed (bottom one) was little small as we were all over 5 ft 7 inches. Sofa bed was very uncomfortable. Kitchen was adequately equipped and the apartment was very clean with very clean linens and ample bath towels.

                                                          The view was nice but the place was tiny. The pictures make it seem like its so much bigger.

                                                          The staff was rude I would not go there again.

                                                          Thank you for mentioning the great view.

                                                          I am sorry if I may have come off as rude when you checked in, I tried to explain that the condo was not ready for you to check in early at 12 pm and your check in was scheduled for 4 pm. I had spoke to the person that made the reservation that morning around 10 am and also let them know of the check in time. We had a guest check out that morning at 11 am and we have to clean and set up the room before you check in. I explained that I would be happy to take your number and call you as soon as the condo was ready so you would not have to wait to 4 pm since you were already on the island. We do our best to accommodate all our guest , it is unfortunate we were not ale to meet your expectations.
