The Location was fantastic and close to restaurants and attractions. The apartment was Very spacious and clean with magnificent water views from the veranda. However the lounge definitely needs replacement as it was very uncomfortable to seat on it. the staff were very friendly and Helpful.

I found ‘Aquarius’ to be in an excellent position for someone who does not have a car to get around, easy and accessible to everything on foot, definitely return again.

Not bed lice, only sandflies

The property is conveniently situated on the Esplanade and has a great view of the bay with the airport and the Pier at opposite ends in the distance. The Aquarium and Restaurants are very close by and the RSL next door. The apartments are mainly owner occupiers with only 9 apartments part of Wotif so there is no tourist/guest reception as such. Our apartment # 81 is in need of an upgrade to the point that I would not stay in that particular apartment again.

The view was spectacular with the gym and boardwalk in the foreground and the mud flats and ocean further out. Close to all restaurants, bus stops, bottle shop and grocer. We had an ideal time.
