We stayed at Surfers Aquarius for 6 nights at the start of the December school holidays. Got an excellent rate through Wotif ($130 a night - booked a few months ago) and were apprehensive, due to the mixed reviews, that we would get a dodgy apartment. HOWEVER we loved our apartment - 22E.

The views were great from the lounge, kitchen and bedrooms, the apartment and furnishings were clean and comfortable, and the facilities excellent. This 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment had ample space for our family of four. We played tennis (lovely courts and leafy surrounds with BBQs and tables) and used the pools - indoor and out - and spas every day. We parked the car underneath the building and walked everywhere we wanted to go, particularly up to Cavill Avenue for dinner etc. This would be one of the better places we've stayed in Surfers due to its location and views (our windows were even cleaned during our stay to make the view even more sparkling).

The only negatives I would suggest are that the gym isn't at all inviting (small and not much equipment) and there is no wireless (unless you pay the quite steep rates). We enjoyed having Foxtel, there was a TV in both the lounge and master bedroom and the apartment had a DVD player.

We have highly recommended Surfers Aquarius to our friends who would like an inexpensive, comfortable, fun family holiday.

We had saved up for six months for our family vaction, everything was going to plan until we got to the resort. The first apartment we were in was disgusting. The tiles in the kitchen were all chipped, there was marks on EVER wall and the tiles were lifted in the lounge room, the where you went out onto the balcony and the furniture was very outdated. VERY VERY Tired looking apartment. We complained and were given another apartment it was better but still very tired looking. The facilities were great but BE CAREFUL when booking, the Ocean views are amazing but the rooms are very average and are not that clean.

We booked a 2 bedroom apartment on wotif at a discounted rate so were unsure of what we would get. I phoned beforehand and requested a ocean view if possible and what we got was AMAZING!! We were on the 39th floor with incredible views overlooking surfers paradise and the ocean, I didn't want to leave the room! Although it is an older Hotel is has been refurbished nicely and the apartment was spacious. Its a great location as so close to the heart of Surfers Paradise without being right in the middle of it.

Iv been going here for the past 17 years. (I am 17) and I love it. My grandfather owns 2 apartments in his building (most of them are privately owned) and even tho they are not modern I love them. I'd rather a family-home vibe (rooms are huuuge!) then a small modern room. I love the pools the spas the close beach the tennis courts the views. This has been my home away from home my whole life and I love it here!

We stayed at the Surfers Aquarius and were delighted with the help from the staff and the accommodation. We had requested a 1 bed, however there are a very limited number of these so were offered a 2 bed at no additional cost (we locked the second bed). The apartment was very sizeable with fantastic views of the ocean and surrounding areas.

The hotel was within easy walking distance of the main strip for Surfers but also to the main shopping Pacific Fair etc.

The hotel had an indoor pool and spa and free underground parking.

Some fixtures are old in style but we would return to this hotel again!
