About Greg & Sandy Dotson

Sandy and I live and work in Indianapolis we visited South Padre one weekend in 2005. We fell in love with the area and people and purchased unit 507 while there the following year we purchased 407 and recently purchased unit 906.

Greg & Sandy Dotson purchased this condo in 2007

Why Greg & Sandy Dotson chose Texas Gulf Coast

Aquarius has a friendly 24 hour security. Although it was the first high rise to be built on the island it has under gone a fantastic renovation. The grounds and landscape are immaculate. You will find all three of our units clean well supplied and updated regularly.

Very nice. Well taken care of.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was equipped with everything you would need plus some. It actually looked like a showroom. I loved the way it was decorated. The dishes were very nice and colorful. There was an assortment of nice glassware. Very nice blankets, pillows, and sheets.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Wonderful week

  • 4 of 5

This was our third stay in Unit 407 and it was wonderful. Everything you need a for week long vacation is there from towels to pots, pans and dishes. It slept 6 very comfortably. However, the mattress in the master might need to be replaced. It's not super comfy.

We'll be back next year!

Nice view

  • 3 of 5

First of all, there was a great view. Second, they were easy to work with.

Now for the not so great....

The actual building that the condo is in is not very nice at all. The ceiling tiles are warped and bulged through the hallways.. the elevators are super scary. I think they really need servicing.

Now to the condo, it was nice and remodeled. I dont remember if they list the square footage but had i known it was this small i would have not booked here. This place felt like it used to be an efficiency and they threw some walls up and called it a 2 bedroom. I mean this place was small. And i hate to say there was too much furniture in the living room that made it even smaller.

I really feel like i over paid. Maybe i paid it because of the view. In any case, now you know what to expect.

Clean and great location

  • 4 of 5

As soon as we walked into the condo, I knew we chose well. The condo was updated and most importantly, CLEAN! Tastefully decorated and plenty of room for my family of 4. A throw blanket on the couch was a nice homey touch, the view from the balconies was great, and the check in process was easy and stress free. My kids played with a boogie board someone else had left in a closet and when we left, we added some sand toys to the community collection, as well as leftover trash bags and paper towels. The pots/pans we used were like new, no flaking teflon, and plenty of utensils. The coffee pot looked new and there was ice waiting for us in the freezer, which we refilled when we left.

The hotel grounds themselves are very well kept and the pool/hot tub area is very nice. There is a laundry room and a room with a treadmill in it on the first floor. The water was turned off for maintenance on three days we were there, and one elevator was out of order our whole visit. Nothing major, just an observation. I also like the gated parking aspect, but sometimes the exit gate was wide open all day.

If I were to improve anything, I'd upgrade the mattresses in both rooms. I'd also apply some WD40 to the ceiling fans. Those things have seen lots of "turns"! And as a personal preference, I'd add some light blocking curtains to the bedrooms. There are currently floor length curtains in the rooms, but they definitely let you know when the sun has risen!

Dealing with the owners and front desk was painless, and all went as expected.

I've been coming to SPI since 1983 and this is one of the better places I'd stayed. It's a great value for what you get.

Great place on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We are very familiar with Aquarius Condos. We love the beach front location and grounds. The staff is always friendly. This was our first stay in this condo and it was wonderful. Upon arrival the condo was perfectly cleaned. This is an older property so you do expect to have some dirt here and there but I didn't see anything needing attention. It's a very simple place to stay. The queen bed was comfy. Both bedrooms have a small flatscreen tv and the living room has a smaller flat screen, too. Don't come here if you are after a theater experience. Lol. The kitchen had every tool we needed. We were provided with a roll of paper towels, 2 rolls of toilet paper, one trash bag and a bar of soap. I pretty much expected this so I wasn't disappointed. Remember to grab dish soap, dishwasher detergent, extra paper towels & toilet paper, trash bags and hand soap if you prefer that over a bar of soap. This isn't a luxury condo but it is comfortable, clean, well maintained and exactly what a small family needs for a few days on the island at a fantastic price with a wonderful view. You do have an ocean view and you can see half of the pool. If you stretch you can see all of it. :) We love that you can grill on the lovely grounds by the pool. That's what wins us! The internet did go out during our stay but there wasn't anything that could be done about it. It was an AT&T problem. It didn't hinder our stay at all. Every room has a ceiling fan!!! This is a huge plus for the Texas heat. There are plenty of towels and extra sheets and blankets. I noticed an umbrella, chairs, boogie board, skim board and a bucket and shovel in the closet for use. We rented beach chairs and an umbrella every day. It makes things so much easier. We took a few evening bay fishing trips. We didn't catch much but it was some good family fun. We used the Bay King out of the Osprey and then used Captain Murphy's. Both crews are great! If you need a guide, Captain Jim Galloway is amazing. We have used him before and have caught our limits in reds. Parrot Eyes can give you his number. If you get tired of seafood, Gabriella's is the best! They are only open at night and they stay busy but have the most consistent food. We also love Cap'n Roy's. Los Tortugas and Joe's Oyster Bar in Port Isabel are musts and have become tradition for us. Daddy's really disappointed us this trip. Maybe we hit it wrong. We heard wonderful things about Yummies but didn't make it this time. Hope that helps! :)
