    Never going back!

    We are preferred , unlimited members and looked forward to this 5 day vacation in Cozumel. We booked a preferred , ocean side view and we arrived around 1pm. The entrance was glamorous and was a good impression, we were then escorted to the vip llounge where the employees were sweet and attentive. The Vip lounge tho, is gross with dirty, outdated couches and a coffee bar with stains and ants crawling up it. No big deal. We were then falsely checked in, what I mean by that is that there was some sort of miscommunication and we gave our info, licenses, and even signed multiple things and we were given pamphlets when the lady said “check Out is at 11, check in is at 3” and then said to enjoy ourselves as we wait for our room to be ready. We decided to stay seated, play some pool and kill some time. An hour passes and we notice people being checked in and taken to their room almost immediately. We are not the kind to complain so we sit patiently, in front of the ladies who “checked” us in... and waited for another hour. I finally got up, and asked them why we have been waiting so long where they quickly took my pamphlet back and wrote down a room number and then got us a room within 5-10 min. Okay, definitely irritated at that point but stuff like this happens and so, brushed it off. Our luggage arrives and we are escorted to our premium room. The maid is still in there frantically cleaning and leaves when we arrive. The room was disgusting! So outdated. Stains on the wall. Rust on the metal. The bathroom floor is so gross I didn’t dare step barefoot. We were pissed! We spent so much money for a premium room and it was not even at 3 star hotel level. I called and asked them to change rooms and they offered for a maid to come and clean. I hung up. Called again and they said they were completely full, try tomorrow. The next day we walked over to the members area and requested a refund, they were at that point able to find us a room that was newer and we agreed. They also gave us some lousy coupons that couldnt be doubled or spent on lots of thingg... only massages or fancy dinners... joke. Speaking of food, INEDIBLE! The pizza place next store is like microwave pizza with raw pepperoni and play dough for crust. The room service was disgusting except for the burgers which we survived on for the week. It got so bad, we bought peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to make! The food is disgusting ! Anyways, the 2nd room was in the exclusive vip area and we were on the 1st floor. Because of the rain, it had a horrific smell outside our door that entered our room. Stagnant, foul smell. They didn’t rinse it out or try to make the smell go away. Literally held our breathe in and out of room. The 2nd room was incredibly nice and should be the standard of a 5 star resort. The resort itself is small. The beaches are incredible. And we made the best of it. But will never return. I’ve attached pictures of the 1st room.

    Beautiful Cozumel Mexico

    This was a much needed and well deserved birthday vacation for me. Everyone was very pleasant, nice and warming. The food was good, atmosphere was incredible and I would definitely visit again. Excellent vacation.

    Nice resort, but dated with very limited dining.

    The rooms were clean and the staff is very friendly. This was our second visit to Secrets Aura and expected more updating to have been done since 2016, but much of the resort was the same. It is a clean resort and the water is crystal clear, but the beach is very rocky so swim shoes are a must. The price is right for the quality of the resort, but the best meal we had all week was at Alberto's Beach Bar (a must do if in Cozumel!!!) and Senor Iguana's on the back side of the island provided an excellent lunch!

    Great Resort - Beautiful Location

    I recently stayed here for three nights and had a great time. The staff was friendly, (ask for Nicolas at the Oceana restaurant, nicest guy), the food was well prepared, the drinks were heavily poured, and the beach was beautiful. Couldn't have asked for a better time!
