DON XAVIER

This resort doesnt miss a beat PERIOD. The resort has details surrounding it that make all the difference from rolled up towels in the bathrooms to frozen towelettes at every meal. Bose sound systems throughout and friendly people everywhere. The bartender [...]The waiter [...], and [...]were so amazing that we could have been in a tent and it would have been a great experience at the first day they memorized all our drinks so ask for a Don Xavier. We met the celebrity chef and he was very keen on our suggestions. This resort is the best all inclusive and i have been at all inclusives for twenty years. Upgrade to the balcony and your love life will improve trust me. enjoy

Ideal Cancun Hotel

The service was exceptional. Every room in the building was beautiful from the lobby right up to the hotel room. I really have only 2 concerns with this hotel and they are minor. The sun in Cancun is overpowering and they don't have shade over the pools (the lounge seating near the pools have umbrellas though). The towels were really rough as if they didn't use fabric softener but Im sure that'll be sorted out.

The restaurant at the hotel (MB) was delicious, but nothing compared to "Harry's Prime Steakhouse and Raw Bar" which was a 5 minute taxi drive from the hotel. Some other nice restaurants in the area were Ruth's Chris and La Madonna.

AMAZING

THIS PLACE IS AMAZING!!! MY WIFE AND I WENT FOR OUR ANNIVERSARY. JUST A 4 DAY GET-AWAY!!! THE SERVICE IS AMAZING, ALTHOUGH I WOULD ADVISE NOT EXAHCNGING YOUR MONEY FOR PESOS BECAUSE THEY LOVE AMERICAN MONEY(JUST TAKE A TON OF $1 BILLS). IF YOUR A LIGHT SLEEPER I WOULD ADVISE TAKING SOMETHING TO DROWNED OUT SOME OF THE NOISE. THERE IS NO CARPET TO ABSORB THE NOISE OF PEOPLE WHO ARE LOUD IN THE HALLWAYS, EVERYTHING IS MARBEL LIKE FLOOR. WE WANTED GOOD POOL SEATS EVERYDAY SO WE HAD TO PUT OUR STUFF DOWN BY THE POOL AROUND 9. ALTHOUGH IF YOU WANT AN UMBRELLA ON THE BEACH THEY HAVE EXTRA THAT THEY WILL PUT UP FOR YOU. WE ARE CURRENTLY PLANNING ANOTHER TRIP THIS TIME WITH MY PARENTS. I HAVE BEEN ON CRUISES, AND THIS ALL INCLUSIVE BEATS ANY CRUISE I'VE EVER BEEN ON HANDS DOWN.

FABULOUS

Went there with my wife and another couple to celebrate my 40th birthday. Everyone in the staff was polite. The food was the best of quality compared to any other all inclusive resort we have been to. We have tried several other resorts in the area, none of them compare.

Live Aqua is first class

My wife and I travel alot so we have high expectations for a resort. LA is on the way to becoming a truly standout resort in a crowed Cancun market. Service is as attentive as being at a Ritz Carlton. The food is good, grounds immanculate and service is superb. World class spa. Location is great for shopping and getting around Cancun. Beach is beautiful. Eight, individually heated pools. Things to improve: Disappointed that room was not what was pruchased or ready but paid for an upgrade which turned out well. Don't know if it was an opprotunity or being "condo'ed". All inclusive should be inclusive not extra charge for lobster, need at least a piano bar or some light entertainment. Guests were every age and international. Overall it is a very exclusive, laid back resort that is very upsale in appearance and service. Only been an adult's only, all inclusive for 8 months and still finding its personality. Orbiz and Greyline were super. We loved it and will go back.

ZEN and relaxation from the first breath.....through your nose

This hotel was gorgeous. It was more than I ever expected. Aromatherapy was light but ever present. The food was delicious, except the lunch buffet was mediocre and pricey. Poolside food was great. The staff was excellent.

Outstanding getaway

My wife and I were there for a week and it was an outstanding vacation! We did not venture away from the resort except for the mall across the street and a visit to friends at another resort. We did all our R & R by the pool and on the beach! The beach has to be one of the best I've been to throughout the Caribbean! The pool was very relaxing and the service was non stop!We made dinner reservations before we arrived and had dinner at the MB 4 nights! We had a dinner credit [...] and used it at the MB on a lobster dinner. The lobster just melted in your mouth and had to be the best dinner for me in a long time! The MB was an outstanding dinner experience for an all-inclusive resort! From breakfast to dinner all the restaurants were very good! I would recommend this resort to anyone that is interested in just "unwinding" for a week!
