The room I stayed in could do with a renovating touch! But after all it was a special. The beautiful view overlooking the Strand and towards Magnetic Island made up for it. Pleasant to sit on the balcony at night watching the harbour lights. Its located at the Strand with easy access to everything one needs. Will go back again.

Room Tip: higher floor for great view over the ocean

We stayed in a newly refurbished room. Staff were friendly especially Jen the receptionist. We had daily room service and room was very clean. View from 12th floor was amazing. Spend most nights with going to sleep with balcony doors open listening to waves. Great position. We had just over two weeks there and will be back.

My husband and I stayed at Aquarius on the Beach for 3 nights in January - we got a great rate online and thought the property was great value for money.
The location was fantastic, balcony overlooking Magnetic Island, restaurants nearby, swimming enclosure out the front and right on the esplanade.
We found the room to be big enough for the 2 of us - comfy big bed, aircon, lounge, dining area, hairdryer, iron, fridge, sink and lots of bench space.
The only downside would be the disinterested man at reception - he could not wait to get rid of us when we had questions & was unable to crack a smile in the 3 days we were there - not that we let that spoil our experience.
If visiting in the wet season make sure you have your own umbrellas as lots of guests were caught out in the down pours and umbrellas are not provided in rooms - something that could be considered by management.

Room Tip: Higher floors = better views
