Liz, my wife and I stayed at Aqua Marina first week of March. We liked it very much. The staff is good and will take care of your needs. We loved the location downtown. You are close to a lot that is going on as far as restaurants and shopping and most of the night life. You also can interact with the people more than if you are at one of the isolated places. But we all have different likes. It is not the best beach , but most on the island aren't that nice. It is not a white sand kind of place. You'll forget about that real quick. The restaurant at Aqua Marina is not a noted one. We only had breakfast once and it was ok. Did not have any other meals there. There are plenty of great places to eat all over town. Make sure you have breakfast at Estel's right down the beach from where you are. Best breakfast in town and right on the beach. Go early and watch the town wake up. Say hello to Gregory, he totes the bags and does maintenance. A real nice guy. Tell him Jack who gave him the Red Sox hat says hello.
