The hotel staff were very good and the food was ok. We ate out a lot as hotel food was more or less the same every day. We had to buy some of my favourite whisky to drink as the stuff in the hotel was horrid.

Hotel tip: Ask for a room on the ground floor.
We didn’t have great weather but we drank at the hotel every day. The bar staff were very fast no waiting.
All in the entire hotel was great for what we paid. It was cleaned every day. The pool was scrubbed, so don’t listen to the bad reviews.
There was a note in the bathroom saying if we wanted clean towels to put the dirty ones in the bath and they would be replaced; we did this but they kept on re-hanging the dirty ones!
The pictures of the rooms that the hotel have on their website are nothing like the room we stayed in.
The only good things I could probably say about this hotel are that the breakfast selection was good and the location of the hotel, which is about a 10/15 minute walk to the main bars and beach.
Good - excellent pool, huge apartment, great sea views, excellent food.
Not so good - rooms need a good decorative overhaul, hotel set on a steep incline so lots of steps, not a problem if you're fit though
We were lucky enough to be a on a day flight so got there in time for lunch. It doesn't look much from the outside as it is situated in the old town which is pretty run down now (however it's just 15 minutes walk into the new bit and taxis are really cheap).
However the pool area is great and all rooms have sea view. Had to wait for 2pm before we could get into our apartment and had I not had a headache I would have happily sat in the sun taking in the views! We were on the 3rd level so had to haul our cases up several flights of steps, bearing in mind how much we ate though the exercise did us good. The apartment was huge and a had a living area, well kitted out kitchen, big bathroom and bedroom. No air conditioning but the fans did a very good job and we left the windows open at night so had a breeze. All rooms have a terrace/balcony to sit on. Rooms are very dated and in need of a major overhaul but were clean and spacious.
All staff were very friendly but a bit reserved and did their best to look after us. There is table service in the restaurant which we aren't used to, in other AI hotels you seat yourself and get your own drinks. Food is easily the best bit of the holiday. There is always a good choice and everything is cooked to perfection. Breakfast was a fry up along with cold meats and cheeses, jams and at least 5 types of bread plus more pastries, cereals and fruit. Lunch was a variety of salads, a fish dish, pasta dish, 2 lots of vegetables, potatoes or rices in different variations and at two meat dishes. Pudding was various jellies, cakes, fruit, ice cream and custard type desserts. Dinner was same as the lunch but with at least one more meat dish.
The pool bar is open 10-21 and the pool was huge and a pleasure to swim in. The only downside is there aren't enough beds as it's a large complex and there isn't any shade at all and hardly any parasols.
Overall, we had a great time and would go back any time
Would go back to the Aquarius as the location is fantastic and brilliant value for money.

food was ok but too much salt for my liking, always something to eat and carvery twice weekly
location directly up from small marina, pleasant stroll into main resort.
staff friendly and courteous, always have a smile when working, especially Manolo at the bar.
andreas the entertainer was always doing his best and even after being thrown in the pool by a drunken englishman at night still managed a laugh.
