Big disappointment

The hotel has 3 restaurants and we could not get a single reservation for one of the restaurant the whole time we were there. what kind of all inclusive is that? We'll never book there again.

Steller

Hotel was absolutely beautiful, clean, service was excellent! Will definitely come back again. My 17 year old son even wants to come back. Infinity pools were the best I've ever swam in - water was like bath water. Concierge was also very helpful adivsing us on local restaurants.

Family Holiday

This was our first overseas holiday with our kids (4 months and 16 months. The hotel was family friendly and staff happy to lend a hand to help. The setting of the pools and beach is great. The food and the drinks in the restaurants are fantastic - highly recommend the fillet steak at the Azura restaurant! The staff in the aqua club are great and we appreciated the attention they gave to our 16 month old son. The only hassle we came across was a leaky spa bath! We'd definetly recommend this hotel to friends traveling with or without children

Fabulous Time

We had a fabulous time at the beautiful resort, Live Aqua. Upon arrival and checking in we were taken to our garden room that was not made up after someone checking out. This was pretty embarrassing to the gentleman that brought us to the room. Because of the inconvenience, they upgraded us to a beautiful ocean view room on the 8th floor. The different restaurants were all nice with fantastic food. The resort was absolutely gorgeous with all of its' pools and food and drinks available outside. The only complaint we have is that we both had back pain from the bed.

Spa, spa, everywhere

The hotel is beautifully finished, decorated and landscaped. We had hoped for more dining options, as the excellent MB Restaurant is only open for dinner. The cabana restaurant is mediocre. Poolside dining is average. Room service is rather good. One should rent the cabanas with beds along the pool or beach, as you receive special pampering, including a 20-minute foot massage. Though your room may be inexpensive, everything else is expensive (spa, food, gift shop, cabanas), so be prepared to spend just as much or more outside as you do for your room.

Lot's of Fun

Aqua was a first class experience marred by a few let-downs. Prices in the hotel were exorbitant. Despite the 25% off on food, drinks, and spa, the prices were still at a rate that was over the top. The brunch was awesome, snacks at the pool not very memorable, drink prices-out of control. The staff was exteremly helpful and polite however. I was a little disappointed with the tours desk in the hotel. They over recommended a tour to Chichen-Itza that turned out to be run-of-the mill and twice the price of other similar tours. Do not exchange money here at the desk - use the ATM or walk across the street to the mall. The second day I had to track down housekeeping to get my room cleaned.

Parasailing from the beach locations was reasonable. Don't buy photos from the on board photographer though, we paid ahead and he never delivered them to the hotel as promised. Do not work any tours, etc through the desk in the hotel.

nice hotel for adults

Live Aqua was a nice hotel. It was clean. The food was delicious. The pools were well maintained. The service was relatively slow but good enough for us considering that it is an all inclusive resort. We loved the all inclusive bar. In Live Aqua, don't worry about buying any bottled water from outside, Live Aqua will give you more than enough bottled water. I should say that three restaurants in an all inclusive hotel is relatively few, particularly considering the fact that it is practically very difficult to get a reservation from one of them (MB). So, you are indeed stuck with two restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It would be nice to have more options. Also, there is no night entertainment in this hotel except the bar which closes at 11pm. There is no perks for children at all. I believe this hotel will become an adults only resort very soon. So, it is not kids friendly enough. It is not full of entertainment either. If you are looking for sometime in peace, this is the right location for you. The beach of the hotel is nice. However, because of its location it is subject to a lot of waves and strong currents. The caribbean sea was wonderful, but it is practically impossible to swim at the hotel's beach in March. I doubt it that it is better at a different time of the year. If you love the sea, this hotel's beach will be far from satisfactory for you.
