    Live aqua never disappoints

    Just got back from my 5 time at live aqua cancun, and enjoyed every minute. Compared to other resorts it’s the best. Staff like Rosalino, Jonathan, and Stephanie are the best part of the resort, they always make you feel taken care of which adds to the relaxation aspect. Live aqua has the best beach on the entire Cancun strip, best views from the hotel room. I’ll be back for 6 times guaranteed

    Live Aqua Cancun - Exceptional!

    Recently completed another company trip to Live Aqua Cancun. This is our 4th time at this great adults only resort. I love this resort as do our employees. Beach access is easy, pools are great, and the resort is not so big that you become lost. The location in the hotel zone is the best with a mall directly across the street. There are so many pros to this resort. First, negotiating with the powers to be is never a hassle. Changing names, room types, or upgrading is easy. This is always an issue for anyone in charge of company trips. I purchased 26 rooms and had to make multiple changes. The service is outstanding plus!!!! They go beyond the call of duty to make sure everyone is happy. If there are any issues with your room, they are there within minutes to fix the problem or change your room if necessary. Room service arrives quickly. I had the Tierra suite, and it came with a butler, a daily reserved cabana of your choice, a 20-minute foot massage at the cabana and access to the Aqua Club. On this trip, a personal shout out to Rodrigo and Luis (my butlers). They always managed to find me wherever I was and ready to do what they could. In this case they had to do quite a bit of additional things for my group. Restaurants do not accept dinner reservations, but if you have a butler, you have access to reservations. I could contact them immediately using “What’s Ap” for texting or a phone call. The resort staff is great, always have a smile for you and ready to please. Another shout out to Marco Arenas (manager of groups & conventions)! He did everything I asked for and more. For our private 2-hour breakfast meeting, I chose a plated breakfast for the group. The breakfast presentation was awesome and delicious! We also had a private dinner reception. I chose the buffet because nowadays there are too people that are vegetarians or needing gluten-free items. I was sent a menu of varying choices but was able to mix/match or substitute many of the items. When our speech ran a little too long there was no problem delaying the delicious dinner. Great job, Marco!!! Finally, a personal shout out to Luis Silva (financial officer of Live Aqua). He is so easy to work with regarding payments and changes. Live Aqua believes in “What can we do for you?” Our company has been to quite a few adults only resorts and Live Aqua continues to stand out in my opinion. I look forward to returning!

    Chicago to Cancun. No better way to escape Winter than at Live Aqua!

    This is the third visit to Live Aqua for me and my wife. We love it! Especially to escape the winter months in Chicago. The service, food, and amenities are excellent. On this visit in particular, Marco (Antonio) - the Juice Guy w the brilliant green cap - epitomizes the stellar professional and friendly service you come to expect at this Cancun property. I visited him every morning. He welcomed me with a smile and remembered exactly how I like my custom smoothie prepared. Great way to begin my day! Marco, Thank You! Live Aqua, Thank You! Look forward to seeing you on our return to Cancun. Cheers!

    Thank you Live Aqua

    My wife and I spent 11 days of our honeymoon here and can’t say enough how much we enjoyed it. The food and drinks are great and the staff is absolutely incredible. Everyone is so kind and inviting. We loved all the different pool options as well as all the green spaces that make it serene. The pools and room are clean and beautiful. Special thanks to Eulalio, our waiter at hidden gardens. He and the rest of the staff exceed all expectations. Thank you.
