This is the second time in the past two years we have stayed here. What a great place. All the staff are friendly and always there to help. The food was very good, I especially liked the Oceana restaurant for breakfast and lunch and Windows for dinner ( get the grouper). Every afternoon we snorkeled and then hung out in the preferred pool where Mario was the swim up bartender, he was an awesome guy! We were a group of 12 and we had no complaints across the board, except I didn't get M&M's refilled one day! 😉 We all had a blast and we will definitely return. Dive Palancar is a great onsite dive shop as well, for diving, snorkeling and fishing! This hotel has it all! 5 of us did 10 dives each with them and had a great time.

My wife and myself traveled to Cozumel from the U.K. in March 2017 flying to Cancun then taking the ferry across to the island from Playa del Carmen , a long journey but well worth it to be able to spend time at this great hotel .This was our second stay here and we are planning to return again . On both occasions we stayed in the preferred club section and found the rooms to be large , well equipped and really clean with great views of the beach and the ocean . Any small problems we did come across were dealt with very efficiently and promptly by the maintenance or house keeping staff The Secrets Aura is located on a nice sandy beach that stretches either side of the hotel and is great for strolling along . You can snorkel in the area off the beach but its advisable to wear some form of footwear as there are a lot of rocky areas as you enter the water. We ate in all of the restaurants during our 2 week stay and each offer something different though the food was of a good standard throughout . The no reservation policy did mean that sometimes we had to wait for a table at dinner This was never a problem we were always politely asked to go and enjoy a drink in the adjoining lounge and when a table became available the head waiter called us ,we never had to wait too long . The 24 hour room service is very efficient and was another plus for this resort Eating breakfast on the balcony watching the sunrise was an experience to be remembered The sky bar is perfect for early evening drinks the location and setting are amazing with uninterrupted views of the ocean and the sunset . On some evenings there was live music and as well as great cocktails you can snack on Sushi from the Gohan restaurant which is located up here . CoCo cafe is also a nice spot for a coffee and a cake or sandwich anytime of the day The gym is located in the sister hotel which adjoins the Aura but is very easy and quick to get too. It gets busy during the peak times at it serves the guests from two hotels but its well laid out and has ample equipment For divers this is a perfect location the dive boats stop at the pier on the beach and the first dive sites are about a 10 minutes away . I used the onsite dive shop “dive house” and booked my trips on a daily basis The boats pick up,around at 830 am you do two dives and are back in time for lunch with the rest of the day too enjoy . the diving itself is great ,mostly drift dives in good visibility over healthy coral reefs with lots of marine life. In summary this was a great place to stay and our own overall experience was of a relaxing escape in a nice location and everything we wanted from our vacation . The staff throughout this resort are realy good and though I have never been inclined while writing a review to name individual staff members I have to make an exception here and personally thank the breakfast and lunch team at the Oceana restaurant . These guys are the friendliest bunch of people ,nothing is too much trouble despite being very busy they always have time to chat and smile So Andrea ,Yuritcia,Margarito,Adrian,Lucio,Marcos,Ricardo, Jose and Mario thank you for everything you helped made our stay that much more special

I believe that the "people experience" of a vacation makes it much more memorable! A 5 star hotel can have all the blows and whistles but lack personality. Secrets has a top notch feel with so much personality ! The bartending staff Angel, Fernando, Jose, Carlos, and Jesus were always attentive and kind! They helped us keep the party going always with a smile. The entertainment staff gustavo,sarife,julio,and jazmin made sure everyone was having a good time dancing and playing games. The food was great and the service was awesome!! I cant wait to go back!!!

My husband and I just returned from a 1 week vacation at the Secrets Aura. We booked a preferred ocean view suite and that's exactly what we received. Although, the ocean view is quite obstructed by all the palm trees. We inquired about upgrading to an ocean front room, those are really nice if you can get a good price. The resort wanted to charge us $200 each per night ($2800) to upgrade. That is just plain crazy and it would have been way cheaper to book an ocean front room from Canada. This was our 5th trip to Cozumel and we have stayed at the 4 other 4 star resorts previously. This was by far the nicest resort. Although, I must admit, knowing what the Secrets brand entails, they have to do a lot more upgrades to this resort. We loved the fact that aside from one buffet restaurant, everything was a la carte, no reservations required. We also loved that several restaurants, including the buffet, were right at the beach. The view was spectacular! The Skybar was also amazing with it's view and general atmosphere. It would be nice to have another nice bar somewhere in the evenings. The Skybar was all outdoors and in bad weather the place would be closed. We were getting a little bored with so little choices and options for evening entertainment. The food was generally pretty good. Service was hit and miss. Some of the bar and restaurant waiters were super friendly and very accommodating, while others were pretty slow and could have cared less. We love spending every minute on the beach. We also like to get some shade. On the preferred beach were 9 palapas......that is not enough when you consider there were over 60 units in the preferred section. It ended up that if you didn't make it to the beach by 6 am and reserved a hut, you were out of luck. There is a ton of space on that beach to put up more palapas and replace some of the slighly worn lounger cushions and loungers. The preferred section also had it's own pool. Every day by the afternoon the pool was invaded by loud,, obnoxious and intoxicated guests. We like having fun and we like to drink....but come on.....some peace and quiet would have been nice. People should have been encouraged to head to the activity pool for nice and enforce a more quiet environment around the preferred pool. The rooms were nice. Probably the biggest suite we ever had. A separate bedroom with king bed, a huge bathroom with separate walk in shower, separate toilet stall and a nice big free standing soaker tub. Then another big sitting area and the balcony of course. Our fridge was not stocked for 3 days in row, despite this to occur. We called room service and they were quick to stock the fridge. We ordered room service on a couple of occasions, which also came quite quickly. Turn down service only occurred once and once we found the next day's program under our door. It's not that we needed turn down service, but getting the next day's program was kind of nice to see what was going on. From all the restaurants the mexican El Patio at the resort next door (Sunscape Sabor) was the best food. We ate there twice. It's nice that you can use all the facilities at that resort. Although it was a treat to be spending most of our time at the Secrets Aura, as it is adults only. We enjoyed our trip and time at the Aura. We seemed to have lucked out with a great deal from Toronto at $1800 including airfare for a preferred ocean view room. In the weeks leading to our trip and even know looking forward, the resort is charging over $3500 per person for the exact same room category. I would not return to the resort for that price. A Sandals or a Secrets elsewhere would be a much better choice. Shout out to Mario at the preferred pool bar and Martin, a waiter at the Seaside and Windows restaurant. Excellent service with a smile and great sense of humour!

Overall, my husband and I had a great trip, but we are also pretty laid back people that try not to let the little things ruin our fun. That being said, for the price, we were a bit disappointed, but do not regret staying here. People: The staff were all AMAZING. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. Even after seeing other guests treat staff members like crap, they continued to smile, laugh, and have an overall great attitude towards everyone. A few of the people that stood out the most were Irving, Alberto, Fernando, Zarate, Luis, Escalante, and Marcos. Very friendly, conversational, and willing to go above and beyond what they were supposed to do to take care of us. Resort: The view was lovely, and the beach was long and clean. At first I was unhappy with how rocky it was, but QUICKLY learned that it was well worth it due to the amazing wildlife it housed offering excellent snorkeling right from the shore. The resort says it is an adult only, however it is the only resort that is, and because the pier is where most excursions take off from, there are constantly kids around and you lose the "kid free" feel. We also heard from other guests that they could hear kids screaming from their room as they were close to the neighboring resort. The grounds were well kept and quite stunning, but there was almost always some sort of party/entertainment taking place which meant that every day was not full of piece and quiet, it was very "spring break esque." It was also frustrating trying to find a place to lounge on the beach. There were barely enough chairs, and i think we were able to get beach towels in the morning once. Every other day there were completely out and didn't get more in until late afternoon. Their website also said that water sports were included. What it didn't mention was that all of the resorts on that stretch use the same rentals, and you're allowed 30 minutes per day for each activity. This was incredibly disappointing as our favorite thing to do is sail and our booking choice was highly influenced by the idea we would be able to rent out a hobie for a few hours every day, not 30 minutes. Food: The food was less than mediocre. Again, we didn't expect much, but it was less enjoyable than we hoped. Meat was overcooked/tough 85% of the time, super fatty, and pretty bland. The best food here came from the market buffet and the new Sushi Sky Bar (awesome place we wish we'd have gone to before our last night.) Otherwise, eating off grounds offered DELICIOUSHNESS! Room: If you don't look too closely, the room was lovely. It was open, spacious, bright, and pretty modern. The bed was super soft and the wifi was very fast. It did smell of mildew pretty badly which we got used to after the first day, and if you actually look at the details, paint was peeling, boards were falling off, and hardware was rusty. When we first checked in, we also noticed the air conditioning wasn't working. Maintenance showed up quickly, however once they fixed it, all the electrical in the bathroom stopped working, and once that was fixed, the AC stopped working, and back and forth for three days. It was also supposed to be an Ocean View room and technically, if you looked through the palm trees, there were bits of ocean you could see, but it really overlooked the pool and the beach, but the palm trees blocked most of the actual ocean. That was also a disappointment. *Disclaimer: we are used to staying at Sandals Resorts which are more than twice the price and are incredibly nice, so this is in comparison to those.
