Nice value hotel

Posted Jul 28, 2017
Pros: The hotel was quiet, close to the beach, and we loved that they offered chairs and umbrellas to take to the beach. The kitchenette was very useful.
Cons: The tiling in the bathroom was grungy. Our sheets were freshly laundered, however, they were quite stained.
Location: The beach is approximately one block from the hotel. There are also some small shops within walking distance for groceries and beverages.
This hotel is a cute boutique style hotel. It is not a luxury hotel by any means but it is comfortable and the price is right. There are several hotels near the Aqua that have nice dining options. The Hilton for example is half a block away and has a wonderful sushi restaurant. The Aqua is located a block from the beach and offers chairs and umbrellas to borrow for the day. At the beach chairs are $12 and umbrellas are $20 to rent, so this is quite a savings to take advantage of. A Lyft from the airport to the hotel is $15 or less. There is no need to rent a car if you're just going to the beach to hang out.

Good stay

Posted Jul 7, 2017 on Hotels
Check in is just one person for multiple properties, so it took a bit longer than it should have. Room was clean and well appointed. Property reminded me of a Melrose Place episode; everyone hanging outside their rooms and along the pool, having their coffee and saying hello. A/C was quite loud, which is ok if it just stayed on, but the fan would go on and off, which sounded a bit like a Mack truck being started in your room every few minutes. It kept my husband up. Property was a block and a half from the beach, lots of restaurants nearby, good neighborhood, staff was friendly. We had a nice stay and would stay again (in a different room).

Very clean, well kept hotel with a cheerful staff.

Our family had a relaxing, enjoyable time unwinding at the Aqua. Thinking about it puts a smile on my face. The beach is just a block away, beautiful! Restaurants are in walking distance. We made use of the hotel pools on days when the oceanfront was too windy and dark clouds hovered. I hope to return again soon.

Mediocre

Posted Jul 2, 2017
Not impressed. Several issues on my stay. Not a bad place for families that have kids with them.

Couldn't ask for a better experience

The beach is very close by, I felt very safe and the staff made never feel right at home. Everything is just right at this hotel and there is no need to keep searching because you found the hotel you will want to check in but you will not want to check out of.
