We stayed here for 3 nights in March. When we arrived we were told our room wasn't ready, which was fine! Instead we stayed in the cantaloupe levels hotel which is also fantastic (and 100% worth a visit).
The staff at both of these hotels were incredible. There was nothing they wouldn't do for you.
The hotel itself has one of the most amazing settings I've ever seen. You are literally sunbathing on top of the ocean.
The restaurant offers a wide range of breakfast, lunch and dinner options and is quite reasonable for the standard of food you receive.
The rooms were cleaned on both nights we stayed. The view was the best view I think I will ever see.
Overall this hotel is first class (as is the sister hotel)! 100% a must visit if in the area. Would recommend it more for couples as it fits in with the very relaxed and chilled out atmosphere!
Can't wait to visit again soon!

'Due to unforeseeable circumstances, Cantaloupe Aqua being primarily a beach front property has encountered difficulties providing guests with direct beach access in front of the property depending on the time of year and the seasonal weather changes. Due to man made structures built into the sea on the coastal line and global warming, which has caused inconsistent patterns of sand deposits. Sea erosion has caused Aqua to lose it's beach during some months of the year. In the event the beach is inaccessible our front desk staff will be more than happy to offer you complimentary transport to the closest beach on the right hand side of the property, which is also accessible by a 10 minute walk' - Management ... more less
