Travel Blogs from Cancun
Well considering I just got laid off at the end of July, I decided my spouse and I deserved a great vacation. I selected Cancun because its a fun destination and my husband had never been - I had but not in nearly 10 years. The hotel is luxury that is well worth every penny, the smells, the staff, the food - there was not one thing I could possibly …
... the pool, a few of us even went kayaking.
The stressful part of the day was deciding where the wedding would be. It is rainy season and it has rained every day since we got here, and the forecast said there was 70% chance of rain this evening. The wedding was set to be on the beach as you can see, but there was an alternate location under cover in the resort where it could have been if it ended up raining. There was also ...
... be in the water again. Ther are lounges and umbrellas to rent for 20 dollars a day. Hmmm.After a good few hours I retreat to the hotel for a siesta which is a lovely treat. In the afternoon I wander to town and get supplies with plans to cook in the apartment kitchen. I managed to get eggs, frijoles in a packet, tomatoes and good bread so am set.I had a lovley prawn burrito in a little local place behind the supermarket which was no ...
... the cenote coz i havent been able to find it on the bus or in my bag and i cant remember if i definitely had it when i got on the bus to head to Cancun. Lisa and I after coming to terms with realising the camera is probably long gone went to a shopping mall to buy a replacement one. I had become pretty attached to that camera, it took awesome photos and the photos could be uploaded straight on to the iPad. We were hoping we could ...
... colours, shapes and species of marine animals and coral. It was like diving in a borderless commercially designed aquarium, only one hundred times better. Huge coral overhangs and spectacular swim-throughs along with witnessing a enormous sleeping green turtle under a cave made it definitely worthwhile.
I was happy to say goodbye to the tour group and continue the travels with the family. The tour group experience confirmed to me what traveling is. It's not about seeing ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Live Aqua Cancun All Inclusive
Stayed 1 Jan. for 7da with family. Not crowded. Fantastic pools and beach beds. Upgraded room free. Expensive food but kids ate at mc donalds across the street for70 p. each am. Stayed in most all major hotels and this will rival any other especially in service and amenities.
Staff would place terry cloth bed covers and multiple towels and pillows on your very comfortable matress by the beach or pool, is this decadent or not!!!!!
My husband and I just returned from the Firsta Americana's new hotel AQUA. In one word, WOW!!! I would recommend this hotel to the most discriminating traveller. It is 5 star all the way. A brand new hotel, AQUA strives to emphasize simple elegance, unmatched service and tranquility all around the theme of water and its power to soothe and heal us from our stressful lives. The hotel is right on the pristine beach with at least six pools on the property designed in an astheticly pleasing, overlapping circular pattern. There are tons or lounge chairs, all laid out freshly each morning with 2 large thick, luxurious towels for your use. There are also double lounge chairs by the pools but the best, most luxurious and unique things are THE BEDS. On a small cliff, overlooking the ocean and next to the pools are these platforms with king sized mattresses on them, laid with terrycloth "fitted sheets", those same thick towels and pillows. Some are covered and shaded on top, some actually have curtains that can be pulled back on the sides and some have full sun, depending on how much of a sunworshiper you are. It is the most decadent thing I have ever seen. The "pool concierge" brings you to the bed of your choice and makes sure you have all the pillows, towels etc. you need. Then, a waitress will bring you whatever you want to drink in an icebucket on one of those "breakfast in bed" trays. Unparalleled luxury! There is an adult only pool with swim up bar, more beds with curtains(like a 4 poster bed) that plays soothing new age music. The service is top-notch from these smiling, polite and experienced staff, who are very well trained and attentive.
We stayed at the Grand Aqua a few days in mid January. It is a beautiful, brand new hotel that has an almost surgical feel to it, (marble floors, staff dressed in all white); you might think you've just entered a Dentist's office!
I recently traveled to Cancun to find a hotel for an upcoming family vacation. I had heard great things about the JW Marriott and some mixed reviews on the Fiesta Americana Grand Aqua. I checked out both hotels and a few others. The JW is a great property. However, I was truly impressed with the Grand Aqua. The hotel opened in Dec. '04 and did have to work out a few kinks. But that is the past! The Aqua hotel is brand new and is outstanding! It is like staying in a chic, New York City hotel but located on one of the best beaches in the world. The rooms, pool, music, decor,beach, beds/cabannas by the pool and beach, service, spa, food, and most importantly, the staff are unbelievable. I had the pleasure of meeting Francisco Gutierrez, the Hotel Director. After meeting Francisco, I could see why the Grand Aqua is so special. He is a perfectionist in every sense and it shows. You can see he is respected and has surrounded himself with an unbelieveable team. Just meet Francisco-Conceirge Director, Raymond-Pool Manager, Hugo-Server in Restaurant 7, Carlos & Enrique-servers at Bar Citrix, Flor-Sales, Ivan-Server at the pool, and the entire conceirge staff...and you will understand what I mean....these folks are unbelievable. I have traveled all over the world and The Aqua ranks at the top! I am going back to Cancun for a week in February and I wouldn't think of staying anyplace other than the Aqua!
i recently strolled down the beach in cancun to look at this new hotel. i walked onto the property and was amazed at what i saw. all chairs on the beach front and along the decks facing the water were double sized chair beds with matresses & pillows on them. some had sheer white curtains on all 4 sides for privacy. perfect for napping the day away in luxury. the hotel was quiet since it has just opened & not many guests seemed to be staying at this hotel. i walked through the lobby which was elegant, but again, extremely quiet & a bit sterile.
A couple of friends and I stayed at the Grand Aqua the first of the year for about 3 nights. The hotel is georgeous!!! When we first walked in, I was blown away by the view of the ocean through the huge glass window.
We stayed at Aqua from December 28, 2004 until Jan 5, 2005.
We stayed from December 1 - 5, 2004. The hotel opened December 1, so we were some of the very first guests. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous. The rooms are beautiful, comfortable and the amenities very generous. We had booked the cheapest room, expecting a lagoon view, but it turns out all rooms have stunning ocean views.
My husband and I stayed at Aqua Grand for five nights. We were amazed by the hotel. Everywhere you look- literally, everywhere- you will see water of some sort flowing. The design is amazing. The breakfast buffet in Siete was awesome. The pool and beach area is one of the nicest we've been to. And yes, the service is amazing. The staff kept coming over to us and asking if we are enjoying our stay. YES!!
Only problems- yes, because it is a new hotel there were some glitches (spa not open, the aromatherapy menu advertised by the hotel is never looked at by the staff, you need to ask for turn-down service, etc...). But the overall friendliness, cleanliness and fabulousness of the hotel makes it a must-go-to!!! Gorgeous. You'll love it.
My husband and I stayed at the Fiesta American in Los Cabos and loved it, so we thought we would try this new hotel in Cancun. We stayed here from Dec. 3 -Dec. 6. The hotel had just opened 2 days earlier. It is definitely beautiful, but we were disappointed to find out most of the facilities were not open yet. The spa and exercise areas were not open, although they did have some massage huts by the pool that were available. My husband had a massage and said it was fine. Only 2 of the 5 restaurants were open - one only served lunch and the other was for breakfast and dinner. Both were pricey, but that's to be expected at a Fiesta Americana. The food in Siete, which serves breakfast and dinner, was wonderful. Very nice breakfast buffet. Even though they have a promotion for a free upgrade to the Grand Club, it was not open yet, so we were offered free breakfast during our stay. We had a deluxe oceanfront room which was beautiful. We actually had three rooms - first room key didn't work, so they moved us to a room with 2 double beds. We wanted a king, so on the second day we were moved again to a king room which was fine - missing some small amenities like the remote for the tv, but they brought us one right away. Room didn't get cleaned until 5:30 p.m. and then they came back for turn down service at 10:30 - my husband was already in bed! Other than that, the rooms are very nice with a wonderful bed. The pool area is beautiful with 8 pools and plenty of chairs. There are also double beds around the pool area and on the beach with pillows and curtains that can be drawn for privacy. Definitely one of the nicest areas on the beach. The service at this hotel was top notch. They were extremely solicitous and friendly. If you like to be pampered, this is the place to go. Because this hotel was brand new there were still lots of glitches to be worked out but that was to be expected. When this hotel is completely done, it will definitely be worth the experience. in fact, we plan to go back in February with friends.
