4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Beautiful resort and lovely, relaxing stay. We loved it and will go again as soon as possible.

The service at this hotel is phenomenal, and it's one of the main reasons this was my third visit. Every member of the staff is courteous and professional, but still friendly. The food, however, leaves a lot to be desired. The only restaurant I can say we actually enjoyed was MB. The rest were awful.

Wonderful hotel very peaceful and laid back. The only thing that was a negative for my husband and I was that there was no pool entertainment. At at least one of the 7 pool areas . So if your looking for a little fun entertainment this is not the resort for you.! This is more for relaxing but overall very beautiful resort and the food options where also good.

Excellent service employee was super it special the house keepers​.food was good also . nice view of the beach from my room.i will definitely stay there again.

My two girlfriends and I arrived to Live Acqua early, I want to say around 8:00 am, check-in is noon, the front desk was exceedingly kind to us. They allowed to sit in the lobby where they brought us coffee and "pan dulce" as we were famished from our flight. The man at the front desk, I want to remember his name correctly, perhaps, Ulysses was his name, allowed us to hang out for a bit and around 10 gave us access to the resort amenities while we waited for a room to open... so kind! Around 10 a room became available and we were able to check in and begin our fun and relaxing time at Live Acqua. The buffet "Siete" was BEYOND AMAZING, we still dream about it. This is a buffet with endless options, you name it they have it. The food is delicious, the service is 5 stars hands down! All the restaurants were great, our least fave might have been the Asian Fusion in the HIdden Garden , the location is breathtaking we just didnt love the type of food. If that is your taste you will love because clearly they have great chefs who are highly skilled. We loved the mediterranean and the SUSHI! A must! it opens at noon! Again service is impeccable wherever you go at this resort! Pools are gorgeous and perfect, the service for drinks and foods is immaculate, we never waited beyond reasonable time for anything we ordered, we had the best best time at the pools. Only drawback was Egos, the "lounge" music is low and it there wasn't dancing, it just wasnt poppin.

Beer was cold. Staff was great. Spa was amazing . Love the proximity to the shops across the street.

Excellent service, beautiful property, friendly staff, wonderful food and drinks!

The hotel and staff were excellent. The food was very good and there was an abundance or choices. The breakfast buffet was spectacular. Perfect location, beautiful pools, spectacular views. Spa services were excellent. The only negative comment would be that the eucalyptus smell in the lobby was overwhelming. Otherwise, I would definitely go back.

Stayed in an oceanfront terrace room. View was beautiful. Stayed on third floor, which was actually six levels up. The higher the better for a great view. Room service was excellent. Had breakfast delivered each morning. All food and drinks were excellent. Sometimes the wait for a drink was long while sitting around the pool. Recommend going to the Pool Bar for minimum drink wait time. Would definitely stay at Live Aqua again.

It was best hotel ever!! Very clean good staff and delicious food

Such an amazing hotel and overall experience. Recently had a group of 20 stay here for my wedding. Could not have been happier with the staff and accommodations! If you have not experienced the Live Aqua- you MUST go!! It will forever change your expectations regarding what an All-Inclusive vacation can be!

Overall the hotel is nice, however it is a very small hotel. The rooms are small and so are the bathrooms. View is wonderful. Beds and pillows are comfortable...but our bed squeaked like crazy! Room service in the am took forever over 1.5 hours. The pool tile was falling off but the pool overall was nice. Umbrellas could not be moved so that was an issue. If you didn't wake up at 7am and get a spot at the pool you would not get a chair and definitely not any shade. Beach was way to rough to get in and once again no umbrellas. Biggest issue was the restaurants...we waited 2 hours for dinner every night. The restaurants do not take reservations...first come first serve. The hotel has way to many people for the amount of restaurants so you will wait forever to eat. The food is not impressive either. Bars at the pool say they serve top shelf but they don't, only the inside bar does. So we went inside to get drinks. The nightclub within the hotel is not really a nightclub FYI. I have stayed at better places but they cost more...so if you want a cheap vacation that's all inclusive and don't care about waiting 2 hours for food and cheap liquor doesn't bother you then this hotel will be perfect for you. I wouldn't go back but I have high standards.

Location was great. Hotel is clean and staff is outstanding. Overall, food was very good. Only complaint is the Mediterranean restaurant had very slow service both times we ate there. Everywhere else was fine.

I went here with my husband and three other couples. We all LOVED it! There are so many great things about this resort it's a little overwhelming to try to get it all down..from the little things, like the aroma therapy in the room, to the amazing food--Hidden Garden was our favorite!--and the sushi..so much yummy sushi..the delicious drinks and multiple bars, smoothies, fitness center, pools, yoga, the coffee shop with cookies and truffles..so many things...the room service food was great as well! One night they had a band playing out by the pool with an elaborate buffet/grill. The atmosphere is very chill for the most part, but our group never felt bored..the swim up bar pool was a little more lively..playing more of the "today's hits" music, and the people that hung out there were a bit more energetic. We spent the majority of our time at that pool, but the other pools were awesome as well. People were having a good time everywhere! We also thought the poolside service was excellent..servers were coming around constantly. We could even order food to be delivered! I would go back here in a heartbeat.

Each restaurant had a vegetarian menu. I was very impressed with the choices. That was a nice surprise.

Beautiful pools, beaches and excellent food. The staff here is the best you will encounter!! Also great location with a really nice mall across the street.

Live aqua is heaven on earth. The resort is beautiful and clean! The employee are amazing friendly helpful and treat you like family. We would love to return again and again.

My wife and I loved our time at Live Aqua. From the staff welcoming us in to the hotel to the very last minute when we walked out the front door to head home. Sarah, who gave us the welcome hand massages, was so nice and sweet. We had a great talk during our messages about life in Cancun, our kids, speaking a foreign language, etc. Everyone on staff was so nice and extremely helpful. We always had whatever we needed or wanted. Orfa, the activities coordinator, was great. On our first day we did salsa dancing lessons with her and Eduardo. It was so much fun and my wife was very happy that I actually danced with her, which is not something I'm normally inclined to do. Over the next few days we'd see Orfa around the resort and we'd talk about dancing and what not. She's always so happy and seemed to know everyone around the resort. The food at all of the restaurants was very good. I'm not gonna say every single thing was absolutely delicious, but a majority was very good. MB was fantastic. The sushi bar is great and very convenient. Varenna was my absolute favorite. Pretty spectacular Italian food, without even considering the fact that it's at an all inclusive resort in Mexico. We also did the 50 minute couples message. The spa facility was quite enjoyable, and the staff were very attentive. It was my first time getting a message and it was quite nice. My wife has had a lot more experience in spas, and she was very happy with everything.

Live Aqua is an amazing adults only resort. The food was great and I couldn't get enough of the mojito bar. There are five pools to choose from with an option for the nicest beachfront on the strip. The location is perfect, right across the street from the mall (La Isla) and aquarium. Take advantage of the many cabana's offered for a small fee with foot massage included. It was the perfect relaxation vacation. The staff is wonderful, friendly, helpful, and always at your service. I would definitely come back here and wouldn't bother trying any other hotel on the strip, this is THE best. (Yes, better than Sandals).

If you are looking for a spotless, top notch service, great food and drinks, and treated like family this is your place. Book it and enjoy!
