Almost perfect

Your perfect hotel and mine are probably different. The Live Aqua didn't hit all of my categories perfectly, but what it does deliver it does amazingly well. Here's what's on my "perfect hotel list"... All Adult - my kind of place - no screeching kids cannon-balling into the pool. Ahh... LOCATION - 5 stars. Not too far from the clubs, right across from La Isla shopping. BEDS - 5 stars. A category all to itself because good beds can be tough to come by in Mexico. These beds were better than the bed I have at home! FOOD - 4.5 stars. All-Inclusives commonly have problems with their food being low quality. Not this place. The food was great ALL the time. "Siete" the buffet was fantastic. You could even "order off the menu" at dinner time. "Azur" near the beach was our favorite. The Room Service menu is delicious too and only takes 30 minutes! The only low point was the "MB" restaurant which all 6 of us agreed had nasty tasting food. GREAT ambience, but nasty seasonings. ROOM - 5 stars. Glass enclosed shower, flat screen TV, DVD player and gorgeous ocean views WITH balcony. Awesome. POOL - 5 stars. Wonderfully warm. Clean. Large. Perfect. HOT TUB - 3 stars. More like a "luke warm" tub when I tried it out, but at least they have one! LOUNGE CHAIRS - 5 stars. They're padded and can lay flat -- perfect. STAFF - 10 stars! You will NEVER find a better staff than at this hotel. ALL of them are awesome! Now for the low points: DRINKS - 1 to 5 stars. You can get high quality alcohol here, in fact the "default" alcohol is considered top shelf. Where they fall short (and horribly) is the quality of the mixers. Eg. Strawberry Daiquiri is like red sugar liquid and some rum. Pina Colada is white sugar liquid and rum. Ideally, it should taste like fresh fruit was blended into the drink, but their mixers are truly of the poorest quality. Better off using Coke as a mixer, or drinking things straight like beer, or shots. ENTERTAINMENT: There isn't any noteworthy nightly entertainment besides a soloist near a restaurant in the evening. This is the thing I missed the most. I like the nightly shows you can get at other hotels. GETTING A LOUNGE CHAIR: Holy guacamole it is HARD to get a chair here! People are snatching them up at dawn! If you're not out there before 8 AM you'll be scrounging around on the beach hoping for a chair. If you want a chair by an umbrella by the pool you better set your alarm for 6 AM! If the hotel reads this...these are my suggestions to the hotel: - Overhaul your menu at "MB" restaurant. No one I talked to liked the food there. - If at all possible, increase the pool deck space to add some lounge chairs and umbrellas. - Everything else is SO first rate, why not make your drink mixers first rate too? - Consider adding some evening entertainment.

Coco Bongo is a really amazing and fun show. The hotel's night is on Wednesday. It's a late night, so take a disco nap, then enjoy the show!

Great vacation

This hotel is really a five star hotel. Very clean, nice foods, and great service. The floor is not carpeted and it is all granite which is a plus. The bathrooms around the beach are very clean. The only problem we had was the slow Wi-Fi internet connection in our room (6th floor). The pools were great with great view. Over all I strongly recommend this peaceful and beautiful hotel.

Awesome Relaxing Gateaway

We got upgraded to Ocean Front room. Awesome views. Great friendly staff! They definitely took good care of us. They always accommodated our request for Vegetarian Food. Great 24hr room service. The only thing my wife did not like was the facial at the spa.

Excellent food for an all inclusive

Live Aqua was wonderful. They have all the amenities (great gym, spa, hot tub, etc.). Most all inclusive dining options didn't require reservations, which is one of the main issues I have with all-inclusive resorts. Dining was great, especially the poolside restaurant (try the goat cheese mussels, they're amazing). The bartenders were all friendly; they offered comparable drink suggestions when my go-to vacation drink, mojitos, was impossible to make when they ran out of mint. Our not ocean view room still had a significant ocean view from the terrace. Best of all, 24/7 room service was included. The only problem was that the affiliated tour guide (Gray tour lines, I think?) at the hotel was super pushy-- he called us all the time, tried to shorten his work time by making us come schedule tours when it was convenient for him (4-6 pm only)... but that's not a knock on the hotel. He also screwed up our airport shuttle arrival time, almost causing us to miss our flight. Hotel= awesome, this website's affiliated tour company, not so much.

Almost perfect

This is a lovely property. The vibe is very cool and calm. The pool setup is top of the line. Lots of variety and very chic. The staff was all excellent. The only little suggestions I would have are that some of the aromatherapy comes on a little strong in the hallways. In other places its very welcome. The other comment I have (and this is coming from a committed foodie) is that the food quality isn't quite where it should be for 5 stars. They have plenty of concept but not quite enough quality of finished product. Steak not high enough quality. Lobster overdone, chicken underdone. Small portions. Short on the vegetables. But, it's an all inclusive.....I am nitpicking. You can just order something else. The bars are all great, the beach beautiful. I would easily go back many times. Buy an extra bottle of your favorite booze on the way in and don't pay too much attention to the food. Enjoy every other lovely detail (the hand and foot massages poolside!!!)
