a place to stay

The Aquarius is in a complex with Embassy Suites and uses their amenities. Aquarius seems to be just a time-share facility which offers the bare minimum. It's far from anything, so you need a car but they have the audacity (like most hotels) to charge for parking (about $15/night). Between resort fee, parking and taxes there was an additional charge for 5 nights of $103.63. The pool area and beach are quite nice but the beach almost useless for swimming. The area between the man built breakers is very shallow and the ground is covered with dense long grass. Outside the breakers it can be very dangerous to swim due to very strong rip currents. We had a problem with the safe which took 3 different staff members before it was finally fixed. We could give our laptop to the front desk for safe keeping during that time. The beds are on the harder side but we had a restful and calm sleep. The staff, especially at the front desk, is very helpful, friendly and patient.

Comfortable stay

I have no complaints. I've definitely seen worst. My finance and I really enjoy the stay. The carpets were a little old & worn out but nothing I we couldn't look past. The beach was nice & intimate, just to our liking. Would stay again.

Very nice place to stay.

The room was comfortable and the staff treated us very good. The area is secured and beautiful. The beach area was the only thing we did not really like it was to rocky and small. Great outdoor pool area. The location was a little too far for the places that we wanted to visit (Approx. 45 minutes from San Juan Airport). Overall I would rate it 4 out of 5. We would recommend this location if you have kids that like to hang out in the pool.

Very Decieving!! False Amenties

They did not have any amenities that were stated. Never brought towels, cleaned room or changed sheets. When requested after 2nights they ignored our request. Nothing to do but pool and beach. No water activities for the beach. Charged 17.77 a day to park. Not a resort and charged resort fees. Horrible hotel!! Did not offer nothing to their guests! Did not explain anything at check in. Really a motel on the beach that they didn't even have enough access cards to give to their guests. They had security let you in the beach but no way to get back out but wait for another guest from the other hotel to come in. Pool bar does not stay open past 5pm 11-5pm for the pool bar. Shared grounds with another hotel. Which they told us we couldn't even come there to purchase food or drinks. They advertised the other hotels amenties. No casino as advertised either! Horrible so called resort stay!

Nice location

No free breakfast. If you dine in embassy suites, it costs $17.00 for a breakfast that the embassy suites' guests receive for free. The two share a pool and beach access, yet not food, an no breakfast is even offered in Aquarius. I also had to pay $47 just to park my rental car in the parking lot for 4 days. And you have to wait in line for towels. The location is top notch, it's quiet, laid back, on the beach, and beautiful. The rooms smell a little sour because the humidity is high, but they don't use dehumidifiers to keep the air regulated. The staff was very nice. I think with a few minor adjustments, such as, breakfast, free parking, and some dehumidifiers, this place could be top notch.

No amenities, poor service, only cleaned half the room everyday (made only one bed, etc), no follow up staff. Hotel honestly not worth talking about :-/

Great stay!

Would stay here again. Only bad thing was the smell of the rug. Other than that, AMAZING. Definitely need an update on rugs.
