The room I was given was incredibly small.......given that there were lots of rooms available. I guess you need to book straight with the hotel as my Expedia booking did not get me a “real room”. check-in was very slow and the property has some strange procedure to check in.........they run your Cc the day of check-in whether you are there or not......if your cc gets declined they might cancel your reservation. BEWARE. the room as very smelly and had no opening window. the only window was frosted so NO light came into the room. I will be surprised if Tripavisor publishes this as my experience in the past has been that they don’t publish negative comments. Here goes.

Room Tip: Don’t get room #2102

What could I say but Bravo to Maggie and her staff! I have known for years and since she has been with The Aqua, Bear and I have always stayed with her, it's clean, close to the beach and close to all the bars/restaurants that we "hang out at"!

So if you want to stay at a very friendly, nice staff, very convenience hotel, this is the place and we hope to be back in 2018 - oh we stayed there end of Sept till Oct 1!

Stayed here with a bachelorette party over Labor Day weekend and it was the best choice we made. The location is incredible - one block away from the beach and a great little cafe. Great views from the upper floors. Cannot say enough great things about the staff - Maggie and Stephanie were so friendly and fun!

This hotel is perfect for families with kids. It's very close to the beach. Very friendly staff. We had a one bedroom apartment with a sofa bed. Perfect for a family of four. Nice pool area if you're not interested to swim in the ocean.

Stayed: January 2017, travelled with family

We appreciate the loyalty to NBV Sovnalle :) and are glad to hear your stay was pleasant. During this time we were experiencing the pre/post hurricane Irma cleanup so the beach chairs were most likely stored away for safety. As for the parking we try to be the low cost leader in the area but I understand that it may be frustrating. We hope to see you back with us again soon!

Awesome small hotel. Clean room with plenty of space for a family of 4. We were in 1203 overlooking the pool. Just a great small hotel. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. Only a block from the beach. Will stay here again. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Let the hotel know your needs.

I had a room adjacent to the pool, ground floor. Decor was modern, although "on a budget". No thrills, but enough for a comfortable stay. Service was very good. Really and truly, the only problem with this hotel is PARKING!! Spaces, especially on the weekend, are completely insufficient, leading to wasted time playing "musical parking spots".

Internet required a bit of inquiring and one on one instruction from the reception staff, but it got sorted out as well.

Overall, a very good option given the location.

Room Tip: Pool view is good, no noise issues even during a holiday weekend
