Wife & I stayed at Aqua Marina last March for 8 days. The location is great,being right in town and close to all the great food. We did not eat at the restaurant as we were told that is was just ok.I can understand why it may be closed.It is tought to compete with the great ones all over the town. It is very clean and the staff was very attentive. No complaints. Yes there is a pier right out front that you can swim off. A couple of local fishermen tie the boats up right there.When they come in with the catch,they clean the fish right there and buy the freshest filets you will ever have.
