The good: The property was nice, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The bad: The owners need to invest some money into the upkeep as the paint was peeling and the furniture was well-used. The only dining options were at a hotel nearby at full cost. The food options at the pool were overpriced for low-quality food. It should be advertised as a family resort as there were so many screaming children running around. Lastly, the jacuzzi is very small and some guests stayed in it the entire time which did not leave room for anyone else to enjoy it. Overall: Though I enjoyed my time there, I would not stay there again.

Room was very noisy and in need of a update, I contacted the front desk and they was told that the manager would call me. Upon never receiving the call I went back the next day and was told that they weren't informed

This is the first time I’ve stayed at Aquarius. I have stayed at the embassy suites many times. I wanted to try Aquarius. The rug in the room looked dirty, the room needs all around updating. Housekeeping came and all they did was throw out the garbage. They didn’t charge my sheets or make my bed nor did they leave me fresh towels. They also left me some dish liquid so I could do my dishes. I also had to go to the Service desk for towels for the pool. I went to get towels and people were checking out I was told to I had to wait in the long for two towels. I will never stay at Aquarius again. Embassy has breakfast, happy hour and give guest bottled water.

It was great but needs a update Inside and in the rooms

The private beach

Property need to up date Furniture is almost broken and old :/

good location, great for families but no restaurant on site

The only great thing about the property was the pool! Great for kids and family. But the room was filthy and slightly poor condition. The power went out several times our last night. The beach was ok. I would like to stay again but they would need to renovate the rooms.

One of the worst experiences I ever had in a “resort”. Hotel itself is super outdated, shares with another hotel. The walls are peeling off, carpets has stains on them, there’s a weird Oder everywhere. I could just go on & on. This is basically a motel. I would never recommend this place to anyone. I complained to front desk right after I checked in, supposedly all the rooms are like this. This place was a waste of my money.

The property clearly provided a sense of being on a tropical island, however, scheduled entertainment should be added to enhance your sensory experience and to break the monotony since outsourced activities can be expensive so is on property purchase of food. Also, they quickly receive your $150 deposit BUT ARE EXTREMELY SLOW IN IT'S REFUND! Otherwise, knowing what to expect I can see myself revisiting.

The room was excellent and staff were all friendly . It was close to wonderful restaurants as well. We would definitely go back !

The reception area could have been a little bit better

The only thing that we liked was the pool. What we didn't like was the fact that we were stuck on an elevator for 30 minutes and nobody communicated with us during that time; also, my daughter noticed that a stuffed toy of hers was missing from the room and no one knows where it's at.

Need to be updated. For the money they charge you. Pool was great and beach location. Employees very helpful alll the time.

Very gringy, moldy, cold and outdated. The walks, cabinets and tile floor were all filthy Staff was kind and tried to be accommodating but the property is overdue for updates by about 20 years. I instantly regretted our stay on the first night.

Excelente propiedad, se preocupan por llevar a cabo las reglas de la mascarilla.

Customer service was amazing. The facilities were well kept but a bit tired and in need of a refresh. Room was clean and spotless. We had to call for towels a few times (old ones were taken but not replaced), but they were brought to us without delay.

The place was nice the area was safe and customer service was great people good service
