“Best Service, Great People, Oh and Fantastic Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

I have high expectations when traveling on business, especially internationally. Live Aqua, Mexico City exceeded all my expectations with service that was exceptionally unexpected. Hotel rooms of this caliber should be clean, comfortable, quiet (this one like my own cocoon), and utilitarian (excellent laptop desk). However, what truly will stand apart is the service. I was never at a loss for having my needs met, questions answered, and help was quick and efficient at all times. Easiest check in experience I've had and the hotel was ready for our group of about 30 all checking in at once. There was no waiting in a line as an attendants were there to take each of us to our room, show us the amenities, answer questions, sign one piece of paper, and I was left to get comfortable with my new home away from home for the week. The food, excellent. The convenience of having the hotel attached to a little mall was great so I could stop into the Apple Store and also pick up a new business casual outfit for my husband. You never know when you'll need something when traveling and the shopping attached to the hotel was brilliant. The meeting spaces were well appointed and again we were so well taken care of for all our meetings it was a fantastic overall experience.

Live Aqua Hotel and Spa (spa soon to be added) was truly a unique experience. Spacious rooms with every convenience one would want. The Live Aqua Restaurant and Bar was cozy with great food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Huge fitness room with state-of-the-art equipment open 24/7. Customer service is warm and gracious. Good meeting venue.

Room Tip: Request the 5th floor.

Although I have very high praises for the quality, appearance and comfort of the Live Aqua Hotel, Mexico City this review is about the courteous and dedicated staff including the concierge and door attendants. After returning to the hotel for the evening, I soon realized I had left my phone in the backseat of my taxi cab. I quickly explained my situation to the front desk and they immediately began doing everything they could to get my phone returned to me. They asked all the right questions and were eventually able to call the hotel across town from where I hailed the taxi and asked their staff to check with the taxi cabs that had just returned from a trip to my hotel. Long story short they located my cab and the driver returned with my phone. I love to travel and experience the many different cultures this world has to offer, however there is a definite sense of paranoia when you are away from home and you loose a simple piece of technology that is your connection to the world you do know. Thanks to the staff at the Live Aqua Hotel, Mexico City this was a short lived experience. I would definitely like to recommend the Live Aqua Hotel & Spa, Mexico City to all those faithful tripadvisor followers in the world... Happy Travels!

Very modern and up to date. Good size room, clean and cool. Staff was very helpful. I am not sure why I have to type 200 characters minimum in order to submit this review, but since it won't allow submission without at least 200 here they are.

Room Tip: Didn't visit fitness center or pool but overall lobby and rooms were new and well decorated.

I had a wonderful time at the Live Aqua Bosques and wished I could have stayed another night. It is one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever stayed in!
It is absolutely stunning, the food is impeccable and the amenities are wonderful! The level of service from the time I arrived and got out of the car – the bellmen & the check-in staff were so gracious and very hospitable. I wish there was a Live Aqua Hotel in the US.
The room & bathroom are incredible, I didn't want to leave. At different times of the day when you get out of the elevator, there is always something special to eat and drink, it's amazing! The decor is so warm and inviting, you will not want to leave.

Dear Faye B,

Thank you for taking your time and share excellent comments. I am very happy to know that you had a wonderful time and that we reached our goal of creating a homelike environment in which you didn’t want to leave. I love your idea of having a Live Aqua Hotel in the US but for now we are happy having Live Aqua in Cancun that was rated #1 resort by travel and leasure 2012 and Live Aqua Mexico city that was just placed on Conde Nast Hot List for best new hotels in the world.

We hope you can visit us again soon and please contact me to assist you in your reservations.

Cordially,

From the moment you drive up to the Live Aqua Bosques, until the moment you wave goodbye upon your departure, the experience at the hotel was amazing! The designers have thought of all of your wants and needs and the staff delivers on the same. The transformation of the main living space from day to night is amazing. Very warm and inviting. The food was delicious, the staff personable and the guest room was very light, open and comfortable. My only regret is that the hotel is not within walking distance of any sites for a first timer's visit to Mexico City. President Obama was visiting Mexico City at the same time, so traffic was a bit undesirable for any site seeing! Thank you Live Aqua Bosques for offering a bit of paradise in Mexico City!

Dear kk0108,

I want to thank you for sharing your experience with us. I am happy to know that you liked the different moods that we create throughout the day and night. Although the hotel is not within walking distance to touristic sites, it is located in the most modern area of the city attached to one of the nicest shopping and dining centers located in Mexico. Sorry about President Obama visiting causing traffic but unfortunately the White House is on its own agenda.

We hope you may visit us again very soon. Please contact me to assist you in your reservations.
