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. Sorry no renters under 25.

It was great!

  • 4 of 5

Property was great! Location was perfect! Only disappointment was checking in & walking in to a condo that had not been cleaned yet! Housekeeping apparently overlooked that particular unit but did show up rather quickly to clean up condo for us. All in all, loved Aquarius & can't wait to get back to the island soon!

Great Get Away

  • 4 of 5

The unit is great. Kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to cook with. Plenty of towels and they even have chairs and a boogie board you can take to the beach. Four great grilling stations. Easy beach access with a rinse off shower. Within walking distance to the entertainment district which is a huge bonus. Traffic is crazy on the island during the weekend.

Overall- for the price you're getting a great deal.

Things I wish were better: A/C did not cool kitchen, living room and second bedroom very well. No place to hang wet clothes to "really" get them dry. Pool and hot tub close at 10 am. Dumpsters were always full. Mattresses were not comfortable.

We really enjoyed staying here! We're a family of 5 and it was perfect for our needs!

  • 5 of 5

The place was super clean when we got there. There were plenty of towels and beach toys (and a perfect beach view from the porch!) and really nice grounds. The kitchen was well equipped and even though the beds are a little old they were comfortable enough. Overall we really enjoyed the stay and would def come back :)

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.
