This restaurant/bar is clean, well maintained & a lovely place to eat or have a drink overlooking the beach. The staff are very friendly.

This is one of 3 Esplanade restaurants in a row-they all have decent food, outside seating, friendly staff, and similar prices. We ate there for lunch and dinner and enjoyed the fish and chips. Their daily specials are an enjoyable change from their regular fare. Staff was efficient and the atmosphere was lovely.

We had the fish pie and the special, Hong Kong Chicken. We were able to sit outside.
Food was very good and we enjoyed it very much.

The Aqua hotel is perfect for couples and families.
I stayed with my partner and 3 children.
The beach is literally on the doorstep.
The hotel is amazing, Dinner has a great menu and the food is delicious,
Breakfast is everything you would expect and more- cereal,toast,croissants,full English and more.
The hosts can't be more helpful full of good advice on what to do,where to go.
Rooms are great Tea and coffee and kettle. The tea coffee and Milk are restocked daily when the rooms are cleaned.
I would highly recommend this hotel if you want a peaceful break in shanklin and want a nice quality hotel.

How on earth did this place get so high ratings and good rumours. We went there with high hopes after reading good reviews, the best on The Esplanade? Well, it isn’t. We had the large crab and shrimp salad, and nothing on the plate was fresh, not even of a decent quality (flour-textured, waterish shrimps from salt brine. Generic brown crab, waterish taste and texture. Origin ‘atlantic’...) Even the salad was without glory. No local products. We also had other items, but nothing to tell about. They must have changed the chef since last year(?), at least judging by the reviews over the last years. I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant now, the way it is in it’s 2018-season.
