The hotel itself is very good. The hotel is actually better than the photos advertised, which was a good surprise.
The only thing i didn't like about it is the location. It's close to restaurants and nightlife but If you are looking to spend the days at the beach, i would recommend staying at praia do saco or mangue seco - Although the hotel is by Atalaia beach, this is not a nice beach and has no structure. The good beaches are about one hour away by car.

Stayed: January 2016, travelled as a couple

Typical hotel in Aracaju. Decent breakfast, even if the people who work there are not among the friendliest, which is not normal in Brazil, especially the person who checks your apartment number before letting you in. But that's not the worst thing that happened here.

I took the elevator to my floor (3rd), but it went past 3, past 4 and ended up on 5. Problem is there is no 5th floor, it's just a storage room. Trying to get back down, the elevator buttons were unresponsive, the doors just kept closing part way, then opening. Emergency phone was inoperative. Hit the emergency button, but no one responded. Saw a fire door on the opposite wall, and tried that. When I opened it, it had been sealed off from the other side. Returned to the elevator, but now the doors had closed, and the call button box was not functioning. So, I'm stuck in this dingy room with not means of escaping.

Crawled outside, and onto the rooftop to yell for help. After about 45 minutes, attracted the attention of a lady crossing the street, who notified people in the hotel, who came up to open up a roof hatch above me. I climbed up a rickety home-made ladder in order to get out. The whole ordeal lasted about 2 hours.

When i spoke to the manager the following morning, her only response was, "I'm sorry."

Many hotels in aracaju, this is good. Location, great staff and good swimming pool. Clean rooms and the breakfast is good. Have valet parking and unluckely not many staff that spoke english. Only little at front desk. Very good option.

As I was on holiday I had not much to stress about so most of the things that I would usually pick up on were not such a major issue and being in Hotel Management my attention to detail is probably a bit high especially for Brazil. First off I would like to Thanks Aquarios for even accommodating me after the previous hotel had fallen through last minute. I booked a day before arriving and made a note to be in the new block and they managed to do so on the 4th floor, even better.
Im guessing they don't see as much rain as I had bought with me because every time it rained the hallways would have puddles of water everywhere (due to windows being open/not fully sealed).
As others have said rooms get 'renovated' with new tv's and paint but the structural things are forgotten but better than nothing. The rooms are of a good standard (for Brazil)
There were not many staff that spoke english but not an issue for myself but maybe for others especially with world cup and olympics coming tourists are there to travel and they are not going to learn another language just to visit one city so I would suggest improving the staff that already know a bit.

The Breakfast Is really great, Buffet with made to order tapioca and a nice selection of items, not to mention the sweet selection for after, I though this was great as in New Zealand we don't typically eat sweet things in the morning :)

Over all, Aquarios is a great option for your stay in Aracaju at a great price that is reflected on what you receive, I would choose to stay here again. *note it is a tad far without a car or use of taxis to shopping malls ect*

Room Tip: ask for the new block and 4th floor

As many hotels in Brazil, the Aquarios Hotel presents a great staff, very helpful and that offers great service but an average structure. Although I stayed in the new building, facing the main avenue and the sea, and the room was somewhat renovated there are still some problems to mention, The main one was the air conditioning, the system does not work properly, and I managed to get it to cool the room after pressing every button in the remote control. However, for cooler temperature, the ac showed 25 celsius, and if you put in the 16 celsius you only get hotter. So, this is an issue of basic maintenance that must be taken care of. Another basic maintenance issue refers to the bathroom, water leaks from the shower to the floor and water tends to take a while to go down the drain either in the sink and toilet. This is a common problem in Brazil, since hotels tend to renovate mainly its image, with new led tvs, painting, but do not focus on structural issues. Also, there is a problem of noise coming from the street if you face the main avenue. The view is pleasant, but the music is annoying if you want to get some sleep. Breakfast is good, with tapioca made to order, but it is unfortunate not to have a toaster or sandwich maker available to guests to heat the bread, There is no beach upfront, which is a characteristic of Aracaju city, in which the main beaches are located far from the hotels area, so you have to take a bus or a taxi to go to the beach. However, there are lots of places to eat nearby the hotel and you can take walks in the area, including the Oceanario nad the beach, that is not for kying down and taking baths, just to look. The main malls are also close to the hotel, as Riomar and Arcos Jardins, which are big and have supermarkets in it. In this sense, do not expect to find any facilities such as supermarkets or drugstores nearby the hotel area, they are far located so you tend to depend on the hotel for water, other goods and deliveries. In the malls you can find all of this, but at no walking distance, It is a good place, but a city for people who have car, or tend to take the bus or taxis to reach the main attractions,
