Located along the lively Fifth Avenue in Playa del Carmen, Live Aqua Boutique Resort is a modern Adults Only hotel to get away from it all. Experience superior service, quality, and cuisine options in a relaxed intimate setting. Bask in the sun on the terrace, gaze at the Caribbean from the infinity pool, and get a refreshing drink from the bar. Or settle in to a comfy sunbed and forget about the rest of the world for a while. When you need another drink or a bite to eat, all you have to do is ask. When night falls, feel the energy of Playa's most famous street from the hotel terrace. Revel in the chic cosmopolitan ambiance that can only be found at Live Aqua.

Location: Downtown Playa del Carmen; approximately 50 km from Cancun International Airport

Oasis on 5th

We arrived at Live Aqua on a Sunday evening, coming in from a week biking through Cuba. My wife could barely contain her excitement when we walked into the lobby and saw the place...then walked into our well-appointed room.With so many great ratings, I don't need to sing Live Aqua's praises, but based on some of the reviews I'd read, it's worth calling out (correcting?) some details.Noise. Being on 5th with a roof pool, I'd read some negative feedback about noise. Everyone's experience is going to be different but noise was a non-issue for us. We requested a quiet room (away from 5th and not below the pool). We knew that a hotel on 5th would get some noise up until 10pm or so. We also knew that Live Aqua was towards the end of 5th - less trafficked than other parts. Net net, we never had a problem sleeping like babies (or even napping in the afternoon)Food. Food quality is always a gripe of some people at all-inclusive resorts. Having been to many, I understand the concern for people who consider themselves gourmets. This wasn't your normal all-inclusive food plan. The food was top-notch, served with style. The service was great. Lunch wasn't just burgers and buffets, it was sushi and tapas. Net net, it was all good.Pool vs. Beach. If you're a beach person, I'm not sure why you go to Playa vs. other parts of Mexico. If you're a pool person, you might worry that the roof-top pool at Live Aqua was going to be crowded given its size. We were somewhat worried. We had no need to be. There was never trouble getting a seat or place to lounge or umbrella. There was never trouble getting drink service.Being able to just stroll down 5th, then return for a quick coffee or snack on the way to a nice (non-crowded) pool was just what we were hoping for - and Live Aqua delivered. The fact that it did so at a reasonable rate was a bonus.

My family and I were so happy we stayed here. Originally, we had booked another resort, but at the last minute we switched to Live Aqua. The staff is amazing and incredibly helpful; they wait on you hand and foot. Franco and Fernando are amazing! We loved that it was a smaller resort and did not have to wait for anything as you would if you were at a large resort. The rooftop pool is immaculate and we spent almost every day up there. There is some loud music playing at night, but that is expected since you are on 5th avenue; it did not bother us. For the most part the food was delicious. The only suggestion I have is to have 1 or 2 specials for dinner every night since there are only two restaurants. We would love to stay again. Please let your staff know they are wonderful! We will miss Franco!

This resort was amazing. All of the employees were extremely friendly and helpful. They work extremely hard and always have a smile on their faces. Franco is the best. He mainly works at the rooftop pool. He is so cute and friendly. He is extremely nice and easy to talk to. We love Franco and wish we could take him home with us!

Everything in this place was perfect from start to finish. We spent a lot of time at the restaurants, pool, spa, bars & common areas and everyone was always polite and willing to assist us. We were treated pretty good by everyone but a couple of names that really stand out are Israel, Deodoro, Fernando, Reyna, Isidro and Edgar, reach out to these guys if you find yourself in here. We are planning to come back here really soon so this hotel is a must.
