The adults-only Live Aqua gives you a great choice of restaurants and pools, not to mention an enviable beach setting.
This place borders a long, cotton-white beach. Plus, you’re in Cancun’s bustling Hotel Zone, so you’ve got a strip of shops, restaurants and bars at your disposal.
The hotel has just bagged a TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Award – and the sleek interiors may have played a part. State-of-the-art rooms come with oil diffusers, minibars, plasma TVs.

5 outdoor pool
You've got plenty of pools to pick from, they're scattered around the resort. There's one that stands out, it's long and rectangular it's lined with sunloungers and overlooks the hotel's beach.
There's a big list of treatments to pick from here, they've got scrubs, swedish massage, aromavedic baths, and the fango massage which is a wrap known to eliminate toxins. They've also got steam baths, whirlpool baths, saunas and a cool water plunge pool.
There's a DJ playing house music here.

May never go another resort. Live Aqua is 1st choice.
Have been home from vacation about a month. We booked our next trip to Live Aqua within one week of being home from vacation. We have been to Live Aqua so many times, it's hard to keep track of the # of times. I think around 22-24 times. We have stayed at 4 other properties in Cancun besides LA. Three of them were Fiesta Americana properties. We are members of the FAVC. (Vacation club). We absolutely love it. We can go anywhere with this membership. We did try Cabo one time. But, we choose to return to Live Aqua each and every time. The service and quality of the staff, food, beverages, rooms, etc can not be topped. We love this resort so much that for the last 4-5 times there, we never leave the property from the time we arrive to depart for the airport. You are at such peace and relaxed at the property. We have so many friends that have become our Live Aqua Family. We love so many of them and look forward to seeing them each trip. Valerie Van Rooij, Karla Gaxiola, Jonathan Chaire, Dana Malave, David Gomez, Aminael, and Alfredo Santamaria. Many more I can not think of right now. Bottom line, if you want to experience the best vacation ever, go to Live Aqua.More
Angela Case H,
Great place to stop and take a break
Live Aqua is an amazing place to take a vacation and relax on the beach for a couple of days. The hotel staff is amazing and go out of their way to make your time at the hotel truly special. A huge shoutout to Marcos "Green Boy" who made excellent smoothies and was always ready with a smile. Highly recommend.More
Home away from home!
We had our second "Sister Birthday" trip to Live Aqua this year. We returned because we had such an amazing time Feb 2016. I really didn't think that it could get any better, but it did! This year we decided to splurge and get the Viento Suite. We love the included cabana and were excited about the Aqua Club as well. The suite was just gorgeous. It had two giant tvs, a HUGE jetted tub and enormous shower. We had two sets of robes. A fluffy one for relaxing and a waffle weave for after the shower. Talk about luxury! Double sinks in the bathroom was a bonus too. I have lots of people I want to mention, so I'd better get to it. First off, a huge thank you to Alfredo Santamaria and Freddy for their gracious staff. You can tell what kind of management they are by how happy and fun everyone is. We fell even more in love this year. Jorge Araujo, from the moment we stepped foot on the resort until the day we left, you made sure we had every need attended to. Not only are you an amazing member of the staff, but I call you family as well. Much love to you! I'll stay in the pool cabana area and mention our very favorite friends/family. David Gomez, always on the ball and making sure we never went thirsty. So sweet and fun! Aminael, always ready with a hug and a kind word. Anything we needed was provided ASAP. Miss you friend! Orfa and Eduardo, ready to have fun and get people involved in the activities. I promise next time we'll do the cooking class! Mauricio, we always asked for your table at Siete for breakfast. Not just for the great service, but so we could start the day with a hug and your smiling face. Valerie Van Rooij, I am so glad we were able to meet! I miss your sweet smile and attention to detail. Your angels Susana and Patricia always inquire after us to make sure we were taken care of. Three sweet girls! Fernanda and Hugo in the Aqua Club. Thank you for making sure we had everything we needed and wanted. I miss walking in to see you both! Jairo Antonio Baxin Hernandez, your (and your helpers) rice art made our birthday trip one to remember. You're truly an artist! Thank you also to Alexander who made sure to remove the rice art every evening and ask us to let him know if there was anything else we needed. Last, but most certainly not least, the crew at MB. Karla (mgr) I miss you lots my friend. It is definitely a much needed tradition now to start and end our stay at your gorgeous restaurant. It is always such a treat. Please thank Chef William again for the tremendous dinners he prepared especially for us. It was such a joy. Cesar is missed as well. His flambe desserts were to die for! You are all greatly missed. I am counting the days until we return! Xoxo TanyaMore
Amazing long weekend!
I've done several all-inclusives and this ranks #2 after Beaches Turks & Caicos. Beaches was with the kids which is clearly a different experience than Live Aqua but is just a much larger property. Live was amazing - beautiful pool, great restaurants, awesome spa, friendly service. We arrived in the afternoon and had a late lunch - this was the only time the staff wasn't as attentive as they were closing the lunch buffet. All other times, everyone was friendly, funny, and super. The spa was great - get there an hour before your service and the attendants will walk you through a great ritual of sauna, steam, cold plunge and Jacuzzi. The relaxation room was so serene and peaceful. We all had facials and massages - the facial far exceeded expectations - it was complete with neck and head massage. I also had the Four Hands massage - it was good not great. The food was fantastic. We are vegetarians and every restaurant had a specific veg menu. All buffets had wonderful salads, fruits, and other veg choices. So tasty, filling,and healthy when you wanted it! Our favorite restaurants were Seite and Hidden Garden. The breakfast buffet at Seite was the BEST - oatmeal with coconut milk, fresh tortillas, omelet bar, smooth bar, endless mamosas/bloody marys, and MUCH more! Hands down, one of the best. I'd definitely come here again.More
Oustanding Staff and accommodations
This was our second stay at Live Aqua in 5 years and it is better than ever! From the minute we arrived and were offered an upgrade to an Oceanfront Suite (Yes, por favor)..it only got better. Our suite was gorgeous, superb views, access to the Aqua Club lounge, cabanas for your entire stay which included a 20 minute foot massage..daily! Every staff member we encountered was smiling, happy to be there, and more than willing to do anything for you. I came down with a bad cold and Jorge went to the pharmacy for me, Paola & Marysol made me hot tea with secret ingredients (Grandmother's recipe) and everyone made sure we had what we needed. I mentioned that it was our Anniversary upon check in and we were treated to champagne and chocolate covered strawberries one night and roses, candles and a bubble bath another night!!! Such wonderful & thoughtful people! I will mention the staff that we had the pleasure of seeing every day and that made our stay OUTSTANDING!! Paola, Marysol, Erick & Walter (beach servers and spoilers of me)), Armondo, Graciel, ,Rodolfo, Carlos (pool area & cabana charmers) Jorge (George of all trades), Isaac (Azur bar server), David (pool server) Donny (PR and all around awesome guy, and Patricia & Susana (HR ladies always seeing if you're happy) . Love you all! It was hard to say goodbye because we REALLY liked all of these lovely people and want them to know how much we appreciated their service, kindness and smiling faces!!More
