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.

Great Time!

I visit this area often and have stayed in a few of the other boutique hotels - but this one really left a GREAT impression. First, the hotel staff is really friendly and fun. Very willing to help with recommendations, directions, booking transportation...whatever I asked, they helped. The rooms are very large and the beds are very comfortable. Even with the hustle and bustle of 5th Ave right downstairs, I didn't have a problem falling asleep. You will hear music from the bar downstairs, so if you are a light sleeper - bring earplugs. The pool deck it a great place to spend the day. Lots of places to lounge. The bar staff is very helpful. Just a great time. I didn't do the all inclusive option - there are way too many great (and inexpensive) restaurants in the area. I did have breakfast included and it was ok. The mimosas vere a nice touch. The bathroom has a nice shower with a rain showerhead. I have nothing but good things to say about LIVE Aqua Boutique and I will stay here again.

Great Small All-Inclusive

This is a wonderful Boutique hotel with big resort amenities. The staff is outstanding, warm, gracious and attentive. We recently spent a week at the hotel - the food was good - like all places, some things were better than others, but when it was on the mark it was outstanding - I'd go back for the ceviche alone! There is a roof top pool which is beautiful - with great views of the city and the ocean. The pool water is not heated so be prepared for the cold plunge on a hot day. The hotel has arrangements with 2 large beach clubs for those who insist on the beach and we went down one day - it was expensive and loud - the hotel has a great pool menu and their drinks and service are wonderful so I will pass on the Beach Club if we get a chance to return.We got a great package price which made this stay very affordable, but even without the deal, comparative to other all inclusive properties, this hotel offered a great value for the money paid. This is a vacation club property, so you will be offered an opportunity to join the club - however it was done quietly and politely with out high pressure strong arming with we very much appreciated.This is our first trip to the North end of Playa - and we love it - the neighborhood was walkable, clean and felt very safe - if you are looking for an all-inclusive experience without the big resort isolation the Live Aqua is it! We had a wonderful stay and will be back for another stay!

Amazing hotel with just a few drawbacks

Had an really nice 4 night stay at Live Aqua in Playa del Carmen. It si such a nice option to be close to the shopping and fun on 5th Ave and just a short walk over to the beach. My group of 7 women always felt safe on the hotel grounds and walking to the beach and shopping. PROS - The rooftop pool was gorgeous and there was always somewhere to sit and enjoy the views and the sun. Lots of options of food and drinks and great service. Our favorite was Epi who was always there with a smile or a joke. The rooms were nice and clean and well appointed. Modern feel to the whole place. Loved the decor! Beds were very comfortable. Beach was nice and close. (we enjoyed a day at Kool Beach Club) CONS - The worst part was that we were in rooms (Room 218 and 220) right above a bar/restaurant that was not part of the hotel that played loud bumping music ALL night. Never ended until at least 2pm each night, weekday and weekend. Although we enjoyed dancing at the club one of the nights, it made getting to sleep the other nights pretty hard. Pool was a little chilly and chairs and towels were a bit worn down and could probably be replaced more often. Food was not as awesome as I have seen in other reviews. It wasn't bad but was inconsistent - nothing to write home about, but this is my first time at an All Inclusive so maybe it's better than most. I would go back to this hotel but I would make sure I was in a quieter room that wasn't over the club and would probably not do the all inclusive option so I could try some of the other cool restaurants up and down 5th for some better food options.

Best hotel I’ve ever stayed at. Amazing rooms, amazing food, helpful staff, great location. Showers are heaven, didn’t want to get out. Lacking a bit of night life though, so much more potential for the rooftop pool area at night!

Wonderful stay, Pablo is outstanding caring manager, wifi is not good

We enjoyed our stay a lot however the main street side is super loud i could not fall asleep until stay away from it if you are a light sleeper...the top floor has the wonderful pool with great ocean views, the service was amazing however there is no wifi overall in the hotel so if you run a business like i do it is very difficult to do so, Pablo is outstanding he was checking on us about the food and service at the pool bar and the breakfast area as well as dinner time so I think he works many hours and he is dedicated to excellent food service we admired that he was around like 10-12 hours a day...Hard working individual! I recommend this place however you have to have ear pluggs to have a good nite sleep!
