The lunch buffet on a Saturday was enjoyable, although we found the offerings to be fairly basic and a bit limited. Okay for the price when used with a Vantage reward card.

We have been going to Aqua as a group of friends for a number of years now & have to say that since the new owner has taken over the quality, choice & prices have all deteriorated. The buffet is definitely not good value - for either breakfast, which is very expensive, lunch or dinner. The weekend lunches used to... More

Stayed here on our way to magnetic island. Rooms were clean, bright and well appointed. Breakfast in the aqua dining room was the usual buffet style (cooked or continental) and provided a reasonable variety of food. Pricing was average.

We had a celebration meal here in a private room and the service was very average. They only came in a couple of times, and one young waiter went to remove my plate and I hadn't finished. I really think he needs to learn about table etiquette. The food was OK but I wouldn't rave about it. I have definitely... More

Went here last night. We are visiting family in the area and they suggested it. The place itself is very nice with a modern twist. The food was nice, the freshly made salmon was delicious and so were the noodles. I was a bit disappointed by how little seafood there was but also by how bright the place was. It... More

The food was good. Nothing to write home about. We have been several times and we would go again. The service was slow the last time we dined (buffet had run out of a few items and we had to wait for them to be replenished).
