Live Aqua Beach Resort Cancún - Adults Only - All Inclusive

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We had an amazing time at Live Aqua. The staff was composed of the nicest people willing to do anything at a moments notice to make your stay more enjoyable. Resturants were also very good. Location is right across the street from Cancun Harbour and a fantastic mall. Only about a 5 minute bus ride from Aqua World as well.

Beautiful hotel, excellent service, delicious gourmet food. Beautiful clean beach front. The staff is friendly, helpful. They help make your stay special. My favorite hotel. Special thanks to Dana Malave

We absolutely LOVED the Live Aqua. Everyone we met was incredibly friendly and helpful. The service was second to none. All the restaurants we ate at (4 of the 7) were delicious. The room was comfortable and the pools were not overly crowded (also, poolside service for food and drinks is amazing). The resort also does a great job of planning out events each day for guests to participate in. They had sand volleyball, a casino night, a movie night, groups going to clubs, etc. You can easily stay in the resort for your whole vacation and love it. However, they also have a hospitality area with people to plan out adventures should you want to explore. For the two of us they planned out a trip to the Tulum ruins and a jungle tour with snorkeling. SO much fun. Overall, I can't say enough good things about the Live Aqua. We definitely did not want to leave = ) P.S. Special shout out to Arabi from the Concierge. She was the best and got us anything and everything we wanted or needed, anytime.

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.
