Recently stayed in Aqua 811. It is a corner unit with no pool view. It does have a balcony on the ocean side and street side. Unit has a king bed, a queen bed, and bunk beds. Has a sleeper sofa that could was not sleepable. Room had not been cleaned. Found a condom wrapper on floor. Carpet and rugs were dirty. Floors were sticky and appeared not to have been mopped. Have stayed at Aqua before and had a much nicer room. Overall resort and pools are great.

Room Tip: Rent from a an individual and inquire about cleanliness.

Stayed at Aqua for seven days in mid May and was very pleased. Unit was very spiffy with a beautiful view of the city pier and the gulf of Mexico.
Friends stayed nearby at other Panama City Beach condos that were not nearly as nice.
Staff was friendly and helpful!

We stayed May 19 - 26, 2012 in Unit 703, a 3 bedroom / 3 bathroom unit. We booked the condo, and immediately after booking found a horrible review for that specific unit here on TripAdvisor. We've stayed at AQUA numerous times the past several years and have always been very happy with the resort overall and the condo units in general. Keeping in mind that each unit is individually owned, each is differently furnished and supplied. Unit 703 wasn't the nicest furnished that we've stayed in, but it wasn't bad. The unit was clean and any complaints that the previous reviewer had were fixed. There is a new full size washer and drier and a new dishwasher. This unit is obviously more of a rental unit than an owner's beach home. The bedroom furniture was inexpensive, the beds a little soft and could stand to be replaced. The white "pleather" furniture in the living room may look "beachy", but gets dirty very easily and it shows age. Overall, AQUA is still one of the nicest places in Panama City Beach and for the price, Unit 703 wasn't as bad as the previous reviewer had made it out to be. In fact, it was pretty nice. A couple of negatives about AQUA: There aren't enough lounge chairs around the pools for as many units there are on the resort and the pool deck is relatively small. The 10 digit pass codes to get in the parking garage, pool deck, beach, and exercise room along with the 6 digit room access code are a mind numbing pain!

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the west end (higher room number) or a higher floor to avoid the band noise fro...

We rented unit 1701 at Aqua with 2 other couples. We brought our 1 year old child, and one of the other couples brought their 7 year old. I will give you the bad first because there are only 2.
1)We got a 3 bedroom, 3 bath condo. The guest bedr dooms are the size of large closets. They are small. We had a pack and play for our little one and ran out of room pretty quick. But since we really didn't spend a lot of time in the bedroom, it ended up not being that big of a deal.
2)Number code for room and getting around- Instead of keys or keycards, aqua uses a superlong number for your foom and for access around the place. We memorized our door code pretty quick, but the beach code we had to wait for someone to be walking out sometimes. Still not that big of a deal though

Good- Staff is always on hand and very, very nice. We were very impressed with them.
- Our condo was nicely furnished and had lots of upgrades. A very open living room and kitchen.
-Close to Pier Park, but far enough away not to hear all the racket late at night.
- Pools were wonderful
- Its a family oriented place, lots of kids running around having a good time.

Overall we enjoyed our stay, and if would probably stay here again.

Stayed here for 10 days and couldn't have been more pleased. The resort is very well maintained and top-notch. All condos face the gulf and have large balconies (size varied depending on layout). The resort has two pools, including one that is partially indoor to stay out of the sun if desired. There is also a very nice indoor hot tub, as well as a ocean-view exercise room, sauna, and snack bar area. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Parking deck is across the street, but there is a climate controlled sky-bridge to prevent having to cross the road. The location is great, right across from Shuckum's and exactly one-half mile to the first block of Pier Park. We walked to and from the movie theatre at Pier Park (about 1.5 mile round-trip) and it was a pretty easy stroll. Target is literally a 2-minute drive, which is handy as well. As with all condo buildings, these unitis are individually owned. So, quality of the furnishings, etc may vary. However, the property as a whole is very new (built around 2007) and well done. We visit PC at least twice/year every year and Aqua is one of our favorites. We recommend it highly.

Do not rent from itrip.net or room 703 at the Aqua. The furniture was cheap and dirty, the dishes didnt match, the dishwasher door was broken, the dryer was broken and all this for the majic price of 1850 a week ! Not worth 1850 a week. ! We will be looking at other places for our next vacation. Itrip.net thought a 100.00 off would make us happier for our troubles. Now they wont respond to any emails.
