First impressions was excellent,the patio area at the front was furnished with tables and parasols,first class,the divining room couldn't be faulted as with the lounge,our room on the first floor with balcony gave a fantastic view when sitting out on the balcony,the room was rather small with rather cheap flat pack furniture which was rather dated and a bit tatty,quite a lot of dirty scuff marks on the walls,the wall paper in parts was lifting around from the wall,the wall mounted tv was minute which made viewing difficult unless sitting n the edge of the bed three feet away,the bathroom was a disappointment,the toiler has a very loose seat,it took two flushes every time to clear the pan,the wash basin was in part of the bathroom two inches wider than the basin,elbows had to be tucked in to wash at the basin,he floor was covered with a badly fitted Lino,toilet paper was cheap single sheets in a holder,the shower cabinet was roomy,shower needed to be run for at least fifteen minutes to be of a reasonable warmth,the drain in the shower had a blockage which the manager pointed out to me but he didn't attempt to clear during our stay,breakfast was below standard,the sausage on my wife's plate was indelible,she asked on morning for bacon mushrooms and tomato,she got on small rasher a half tomato and and a teaspoonful of chopped,mushrooms,the coffee was tasteless I asked for stronger coffee and was told it was made in a large container,I stopped ordering coffee as did another guest,my final gripe is that there was no parking and cars had to be left on the esplanade which cost around six pounds per day,the staff were fantastic the room service team,dining room staff,everyone,our weeks stay cost £700 in my opinion grossly overpriced,it should have been no more than £350,I think a refund would be in order,would we return to the Aqua-NO
