Ok Before i picked Live Aqua for my vacation I spent a lot of time on this site reading all the glowing reviews. So I went there with very high expectations. Well, Live aqua did not disappoint. From the moment you hit the door you are totally immersed in a calm, tranquil, peaceful environment that hit all five of your senses.This place is like walking it to the worlds biggest spa.
The pools. Wow the pools. they were perfect. the temperatures were different in each so your will find one you love. It is at the pools where you realize you are at an adults only resort. The drinks are flowing (tho a little weak, just order 2 at a time) and there are no kids running around screaming.
The restaurants were also great. This is no cheap Vegas buffet. These are really nice cloth napkin (i never saw a paper towel in the entire place, even the restrooms, ALL cloth). The sea bass in Azur and the seared tuna at MB were just awesome. I recommend the restaurants over room service.
The spa was outstanding. I received the best massage ever. They tell you to get there an hour early to do this hydro therapy thing. By the time you are finished with the sauna, steam room and alliterating cool and warm water soaks you are ready for your massage and it is awesome.
There is a button on the phone that says "Your wish, My Wish". Want potato chips in the middle of the night, Just push that button and before long your chips will be there.
I do have 3 minor criticisms. First the internet access was kinda spotty and slow. Darn I couldn't check my e-mail. That just left a lot more time at the pool.
My final criticisms would not happen at any other hotel. Live Aqua goes way out of its way to create this calm peaceful environment so anything that takes you out of this peaceful mindset really stands out. First, the towels in the room were not the softest. That is not to say they were bad. If you had these large thick towels at any other hotel you would be happy but because you have grown to expect perfection at Live Aqua, the less than baby butt soft towels really stand out.
My final criticism is the doorbell, Yes the rooms have doorbells and for some reason the doorbell sounds like a a dryer alarm. Again this would not matter at any other hotel but because Live Aqua so successfully creates this incredible environment, anything that distracts you form this peaceful mindset really stands out.
Here is a bit of really good advise I picked up from this site. Bring plenty of ones for tipping. This will probably be all the cash you need. Don't worry about exchanging your dollars into pesos, Dollars are accepted everywhere
I cannot recommend this place and higher. If you seek a vacation where you can just relax and recharge those batteries, Live Aqua is the place for you. If you are looking for a party hotel or a hotel to hang out with your kids, move on.
