Fully furnished kitchen made me feel right at home; had no problem cooking; just take your spices. Coffee pot makes your coffee stink. Beds were extremely uncomfortable; you can feel the springs poking your body. When the AC unit turns on, it sounds like a hail thunder storm on a tin roof, with a plane landing; very loud rattling in the first bedroom. The locks don’t look very secure and the door is lose; you can hear people in the hall way loud and clear, from the first bedroom. Restrooms are very small; about 2 feet wide! Replace the beds and AC and maybe and it would have been 5 stars.
Padre island rentals was so easy and great staff. The main highlight was aquarius frontman Polo! That dude is an asset to that company, told us all the best eats and island fun including fishing spots. Family had a blast, beach was amazing as always, super clear and cold on hot days. Only bad star is pool gets crowded which is fine b/c we came for the beach, the facility was getting a facelift so a bit of construction trash around the property, and wish they had a walkway to the beack instead of a narrow sand trail in the dunes, made pulling the wagon difficult. But if u know the lows you can have a awesome experience. H€ll yes we will be back! Thanks
Good location, bad details
Beds are horrible, couches are for outdoor, both uncomfortable. AC is very noisy. These problems need to be fixed for a more enjoyable rental experience.
Property is clean and location is great.
You're paying for location
Probably the most uncomfortable room we've ever stayed in. I almost never complain about stuff because I always look for the positives, especially on vacation, but this place was over the top uncared for and uncomfortable. To start, there was no privacy in the day room due to half of the blinds missing from two sliding glass doors. Not only were they missing, but the sun would shine right through the doors making it hot and bright in there. So since it would get so hot inside we would turn down the AC which would then cause a whole other problem of its own. The AC would shake and rattle the entire shared wall of the rooms. The amount of noise created made it impossible to sleep at night with the AC on. So we would shut it off in order to fall asleep only to wake up in a pile of our own sweat. Some fans would have been nice in the rooms to give us a different option. The only advice I can give to people staying here in the future is bring a cushion to sleep on because the beds are stiff, get it really cold before you go to bed so you dont have to try and fall asleep with the AC rattling the walls, and just keep in mind the whole time that you're paying for location and convenience to the beach, not comfort.
Very happy!! 4.5, pool/hot tub heater only complaint
Aquarius condos are wonderful! Very clean, the housekeeping staff is wonderful, smells so clean every time you walk in the doors. 24hr front desk staff which were great. Maintenance staff was attentive and very nice. Saw the same faces daily so you get know them. Condos very nice for price! Bathrooms are both small but nice. Location is amazing, walking distance to tons of shops and restaurants/bars. Footsteps from the beach, awesome views. Only cons- heater in hot tub and pool does not work if outside temp is below 55, which is exactly when you want the heat on! I would not have minded as much if that info would have been in the listing so we were aware. Not much indoor to do on the island as the weather was COLD the week of Christmas when the cold front went through whole country. We drove to Brownsville for indoor activities. Overall wonderful trip, would definitely rebook with them! Honestly they ONLY real complaint would be the heater in pool and hot tub.
Noisy air condition
Horrible sound when AC is on
