A very good one night stay. Family room was very comfortable and clean. Staff very helpful and welcoming. We had bikes and they were able to store these securely at the back of the hotel. Breakfast was excellent.

We had a very enjoyable family dinner at this hotel. The staff were friendly and attentive and the meals delicious and substantial.I would recommend to others. My ratings are for the restaurant only as I was not a guest at the hotel.

Very nice stay at the beginning of July with my son. The room was all I needed except the size of the TV which was only 15 inches, but I had a conversation with the owner and they have already upgraded the TV in some rooms. The hotel was very clean and the staff brilliant. The food was very good and as a french person, I know what good food is. It was so nice that we ate 5 nights out of 6 in the hotel restaurant. The breakfast and restaurant staff are very attentive.
The location is very good and having the opportunity after your meal to have a capuccino on the patio with a view of the ocean is fantastic.
I will definitely come back

We stayed at the Aqua for a couple of days for a short break. Our well-appointed room was on the second floor with a balcony looking out to sea - a fabulous view to wake up to. The hotel is very clean and has a friendly staff, and we were made to feel very welcome. We took only breakfast in the hotel, but that was excellent. There is no hotel parking and we needed to park on the road in front of the hotel - no problem off season, but in the high season it could be a problem. It is difficult to find fault with the Aqua - it's a really nice small seafront hotel, and we would gladly stay again. There are a number of restaurants close by - some in other hotels and, like the Aqua, with patio dining. The town centre is a bit of a hike on top of the cliff, but there is a council-run lift service that gets you there if you don't fancy the stairs.

Room Tip: Get a room with a sea view - it's really worth it.

Stayed at this hotel for a couple of days this week.
We had a lovely room with balcony and an absolutely stunning view looking over the beach .
The room was immatcultly clean and very comfortable,it also looked like it had recentl been refurbished.
The evening meals were very tasty and also good value.
We even felt looked after in the mornings ,with a really nicely presented breakfast table.
The staff here are all really friendly and helpful,and we look forward to going back again next year.

Room Tip: Room 16 fantastic view. The food is probably the best quality and value along the strip.

Whilst on holiday last week on the island we found the Aqua hotel and decided to have a meal there, the way to explain it was( WOW) what food and staff we had looking after us, the food was first class, freshly cooked very hot and we did not have to wait long to be served our food, they gave us nibbles while they cooked the food also this came with a bottle of water (first time I have not been charged for this service) the place was spotlessly clean, we were made to feel so welcome. The waitress Emma gave us first class service and was so pleasant and friendly she made us feel so welcome and nothing was to much for her. It was that good we just had to go back the following night just in case this was a one off, but NO we had and were treated the same.
If in the area I would highly recommend you visit this hotel and try for yourselves.
Thank you The Aqua Hotel and we look forward to visiting you again when we visit the Island again.
