Awesome all inclusive

Posted Jul 25, 2014
My wife and I just got home from a 3 night trip to Live Aqua. We've done a good amount of travel and this hotel is by far the best all-inclusive we've ever experienced. From the moment you walk in the door you feel like you are in a zen spa. Your wish is their command and they all seem truly grateful to have you as a guest. Upgrade to a suite at checkin and you get a cabana every day, a 20 min foot massage daily and access to the concierge level. Highly recommend. We were there for our 13th anniversary and they made it special for us.

Pure Beauty, Balance, and Nirvana

Posted Jul 25, 2014
Pros: I liked the attention to detail about Live Aqua the most.
Cons: The dining choices have changed slightly since our last visit (2 yrs ago). The dishes across all restaurants seem less memorable this time around.
Location: It is located in the Zona Hotelera, between the Caribbean and a large lagoon. There is nearby shopping and close to many other activities.
This was my third time coming to Cancun and Live Aqua. In truth, Live Aqua is probably the main reason why I keep coming back. It's truly the attention to detail which makes Live Aqua an immersive, relaxing, and luxurious experience. Upon entering the lobby — a gracious, airy space scented with Aqua, a fragrant blend of Eucalyptus, Rosemary, and Peppermint — you're immediately taken into a meditative, zen-like trance. The staff is attentive and gentle; Sometimes they offer newly arrived guests with tea or hand massage. This time around, we decided to book an exclusive Aqua Lounge room. These ocean-facing rooms are located on the 5th floor with exclusive access to the lounge, a nice perk if you are looking for top shelf alcohol and afternoon canapes. The room size is generous, comfortable, and well-furnished. Bedside zen accents change from day to day, rotating between a zen garden, a zenergy chime, and an incense burner. Each room also comes with an aromatherapy diffuser and a menu of scents to suit your mood. The Spa is an amazing perk at this resort, as it is easily the core of Live Aqua, defining each breath and movement as you explore the resort grounds. Each time I visit, I make sure to treat myself to the spa services. Besides the spa, there are multiple pools facing the turquoise blue ocean. Cabana boys/girls cater to your every poolside need and top notch restaurants and multiple dining options packages it all up with a bow.

ALMOST HEAVEN!

Posted Jul 24, 2014
Live Aqua is the next best thing to heaven. The entire staff is top notch. They go out of their way to make sure your stay is a memorable one. When you enter the hotel, the smell is so inviting. Check-in was very smooth and they offer you refreshments. Our room was very clean and the view was simply gorgeous. I could give you so many examples of how they treat their guests. I will only list a couple that stood out for me. My daughter and I wanted a pizza. The pool staff said "the restaurants had closed for lunch but I will see what I can do". About 10 minutes later here she came with our pizza. Ale and Amanmel at the pool served us for several days. They always came by and asked us if we needed anything. Amanmel even came into the pool to serve us. Is that dedication or what. This was only our second time at Live Aqua but many of the staff remembered us from last year. Oscar at Azur, Ale at the pool, the two guys at the coffee shop. Jonathan at Varenna went out of his way to get us a table for dinner. I could go on and on and on. I will NEVER stay anyway else but Live Aqua.

Pros: Service, Food, Staff, Pool, Beach, Gym, Restaurant selection, Service.
Cons: Bigger glasses for drinks by the pool! Bring your own insulated cups and the staff at Live AQUA will be happy to fill'em up.
Live AQUA is absolute paradise! Customer service was impeccable, food was delicious, drinks were cold, rooms were clean, bed was comfy..... So glad I picked Live AQUA for a get-a-way vacations with my bride. We will definitely be back in the very near future.

Great resort, great time had by all. Some of the drinks were not as good as other resorts, but they did have more top end spirit choices. You had to watch some of the bartenders as they would try to pour you the lower end spirits even after you requested a certain brand. This was a little issue though. Would highly recommend this resort. Food was awesome!!
