    The excursions were great, the staff friendly and very helpful. No language barriers. Facilities were awesome! The elevators were slow but tolerable. The spa was one of the best ever. Great shopping close by.

    Lovely , Amazing , Unique !!!

    The staff is very attentive. JAIME CEPEDA Concierge ,was one of the first people we met and he set a very nice activities and recommendations for the entire stay, I was lucky to find such a lovely person, attentive , helpful and charismatic. The easy beach access is a huge bonus and also that the beach is not nearly so crowded as others . The rooms are nice. I come for the pool and beach which are perfect. The drinks are very good and we were happy with the restaurants. The all inclusive feature made our stay more running around looking for a place to eat! Thanks

    Beautiful resort with great service and facilities

    My wife and I had a wonderful 10 days at the Live Aqua. The staff was superb catering to our wishes at every turn. Loved the large pool area. It was windy for a few days and we couldn't put up the beach umbrellas. So they comped us with a cabana on two separate occasions. Carlos at the coffee shop was great. My wife did a few hours of work there every morning and he made sure that she had plenty of Starbucks vanilla lattes and wonderful pastries. She calls him her office manager. It's hard to get me wife to leave work and go on vacation but she is already looking forward to going back next year.

    Amazing! We will definitely be back!

    This was our second visit here and Live Aqua was even better than we remembered! We booked an aqua suite and it was amazing! Our room was huge and spotlessly clean. The ocean front balcony was also huge and very nice! The aqua suite included free access to a cabana everyday which was also amazing! (We has to sign up everyday like everyone else but the cost was $0). The cabana was great because the hotel was busy and the pool got a little crazy so this was a nice escape (we got a cabana on the ledge everyday overlooking the beach). Also, the free 20 minute foot massage that came with the cabana was amazing and the food and drink service at the cabana was excellent! We were absolutely blown away by the lunch options everyday! Azul, sea corner, and the Italian restaurant are all open for lunch, plus the grill outside by the pool, plus the man making hamburgers and hot dogs, plus the man the makes paella plus the menu at the pool and beach! It’s amazing there are so many choices for lunch! The dinner restaurants were all amazing! I highly recommend the Italian restaurant, Azul, and MB. Oh and the nights that the buffet is not a buffet it’s an a la carte Mexican restaurant was amazing too! We absolutely cannot wait to come back here it is amazing!!!!

    Modern, clean & comfortable rooms and beds. Nice open pool area options and large beach that is not too crowded or noisy. Friendly staff with excellent service throughout the hotel. Quality Food and drink with good options. Young party goers should consider another hotel option.
