Could be better, could be a lot worse.
Aplus hosts my adult site. I am not the owner of the site, but the webmaster and/or a partner. Needless to say, aside from the billing, I deal with the host solely.
The host has a very good back-end, very easy to use. The features are numerous, and once unlocked are well developed and convenient. That being said, I wish you better luck in getting them to enable certain features. I say this because we purchased a domain through them and they have not added it to the list in the host panel, and I still do not have my Secure Socket Shell unlocked. This combined with a very strict firewall makes it difficult to install various 3rd party scripts that would help run my site.
One other issue I've had- and this may be me- but I seem to use more CPU time (proportionately) than I do bandwidth. I would like to maximize my bandwidth plan and script time, but I cannot increase the CPU time unless I go dedicated. To sum it up- we pay for bandwidth we don't use or pay for extra PHP beyond out rate plan. You may or may not have the same problem, I doubt you will.
For beginners that will never need these advanced features, this is not a problem as the all around the price, reliability, space, and ease of use are some of this hosts strong-points.
Biggest Pro: Reliable
Biggest Con: Firewall
