Live Aqua Beach Resort Cancún invites you to "Be Yourself" at its adults-only resort situated in the middle of Cancun's Hotel Zone. And it certainly does not lack personalized touches. For sensitive swimmers, Live Aqua's seven pools, including infinity and lap pools, come in varying temperatures, so one of them is sure to be just right. You'll also have access to the beach, where you can post up in a private cabana. And as far as dining goes, you'll have your pick of 12 restaurants and bars, which serve everything from Mediterranean fare to traditional Mexican cuisine. When you're ready to turn in for the evening, you'll find an aromatherapy kit, along with a flat-screen TV and a spacious bathtub and shower in your room or suite. Another bonus: Previous guests said the vistas overlooking the Caribbean Sea from the ocean-facing rooms are impressive. Past visitors also praised the gracious resort staff, who they said went above and beyond to cater to guests' needs.

The resorts vibe is best suited for those seeking a pampered and an atmosphere of modern affluence.



Outside, each pool is heated to a different temperature, offering a world of alternatives to the beach which, while beautiful, is subject to rough currents.

Frommer's Exceptional



The hotel mostly attracts luxury-minded thirty-something sun worshippers, who appreciate soothing hues, large airy rooms, and a resident DJ spinning tunes that perfect the Zen vibe.

Fodor's Choice

Travel + Leisure


Small touches help to create the relaxed, anti-stress vibe: consider the aromatherapy (the scent of eucalyptus and lavender wafts through public spaces, including an outdoor contemplation area) and the meditative, mini–Japanese sand garden boxes left in the room at turndown.
