A small room in brand new hotel located in town of Tulum, only 6 kilometers from one of the prettiest beaches of the world (the bathroom is shared with another room)
Landscaping and place was very modern and serene, yet still maintained a Tulum 'sort of feel.' Very small room (ALEX-QUEEN).
On arrival we were given a tour of the airbnb complex and we were shown the kitchen. Our host seemed to allude to be able to use the kitchen. One other guest was staying for a month and was told there was a fully functional kitchen for use. So, one night we decided to make a small dinner with our own groceries and the owner Giorgio said that the kitchen is NOT for use. Kind of impersonal about it and cold. Ruined the atmosphere and night. He was always lurking around fiddling with things and wasn't a very warm person. Overall I didn't really enjoy the experience had a much better time with staff and atmosphere at Mama's House Hostel.
We absolutely loved aqua viva. It felt like a beautiful sanctuary in the thriving, trendy Tulum. We were greeted with immediate hospitality. The breakfast was incredible, sail away is highly recommended. The staff were great, big thanks to Casper who gave us a ride to the bus station early in the morning to save us the walk with our bags. This place is ideal for single travellers, a romantic getaway for couples, and just about anyone. It was great value for money and we'd love to stay there again. We were staying in a smaller room but were shown the bigger suites, which looked immense with huge beds and massive bathrooms. We really did love this place.
Aqua Viva was a truly delightful experience. The building itself is a meticulously designed piece of modern architecture that manages to surprise you every time you walk through the wooden gate. Still the vibe is relaxed, thanks to an all-around great staff that is extremely friendly and communicative. Aqua Viva is well worth the detour from the hectic hotel zone and comes highly recommended for anyone planning a stay in Tulum.
Everything at this hotel was perfect !
The hotel looks a lot better than described.
Can't think about one thing I would change.
We had the BEST design hotel in 'Our Way', from the moment we arrived we felt at home and relaxed.
Great designed rooms. Shower with bath has excellent design (Deluxe king room highly recommended!) and staff is friendly and professional and helped with everything
Tulum has beautiful beaches and the atmosphere is really relaxing
It would be hard to describe in words how I fell in love with Aqua Viva, the amazing people I met and the incredible Tulum. Aqua Viva is an oasis that makes you feel home even when you are a thousand miles away and on your own. The facilities are beautiful, new and clean. The people I encountered simply amazing. Each guest can have the experience he is looking for weather it is a quiet romantic get away with days on the beach and visits to the ruins or a solo trip and getting to know those who live in Tulum and discovering all the hidden non touristy places.
It was an unforgettable journey I know I could never have had staying at any other resort and I will definitely be returning.
Try it to believe it :)
I feel so lucky to have stumbled upon Aqua Viva. It is such a gem and has been the highlight of my trip thus far. Giorgio, Elyne and Tijmen are such a special crew and make you feel so welcome.
Also, the space is amazing and so well designed. The pictures don't do it justice. If you can, definitely upgrade to the suites. The indoor/outdoor shower is totally cool!
