Our Opinion

The Secrets Aura Cozumel is a fairly good resort. The fantastic staff are always available in taking requests and following up on any concerns. There is good variety with regards to buffet and a la carte items. However, not all restaurants are open daily. The ocean view rooms are OK (many travelers recommend not splurging extra for this feature). While the Secrets Aura is a good resort, there are a variety of others around the strip that offer the same service for better value.

Old, dirty, smells awful, bad service

Not at all a good resort not worth it at all. The rooms smelled horrible. The food was well below average. The service is nearly terrible. The rooms and resort attempt to look updated but most things have so much dust, dirt and rust on them it's disgusting. I'm not sure floors have ever been cleaned and no one could figure out why our roomed smelled absolutely horrible. I'd never vacation here again and would not recommend it to anyone. I'd choose a Palace resort of the intercontinental. This hotel doesn't even come close to a 3 star.

The Secret is Out - Secrets Ain't That Great๐Ÿ˜

The Secret's out - Secrets Aura Ain't that Great. The welcoming. My boyfriend and I loved arriving and being greeted with champagne and frozen lemongrass scented towels. The next part, I'm not sure who's to blame here, but my reservation was somehow downgraded to a single person's room. So basically, :30 minutes and $400 later the problem was fixed at my expense. ๐Ÿ˜Be prepared to get harassed by the "VIP Services" for a tour of units available for purchase also be prepared for the spa to hit you up as well. We did the 90 minute couples massage. Just before our massages began, we were being (up)sold on some damn aromatherapy oil. Like, lady I just took 2 taxis and a ferry to get here, please just give me my massage, I just want to relax ๐Ÿ˜ฉ. The room. We stayed in unit 1116. It was one of the semi-ocean view - swim up - suite. It was nice. It appeared to be clean, despite coming across several stands of strange hair on the bed linens. The room did have a sewage aroma to it, hence they provide you with incense. The California King bed was really comfy and sturdy for bed activities. ๐Ÿ˜. The air conditioning in the room went out the first night and was fixed the next day. Be prepared to hear everything in the hall outside your room. Everything is made of stone and it amplifies people walking, talking, singing and yelling especially. Lots of mosquitos in the room and all over the resort. Be careful. The swim up porch area was okay. Lots of dead bugs and again that all too familiar raw sewage smell. The food. This was my first time ever staying at an all inclusive resort. My first time at the chain of resorts. Unfortunately, it will be my last. The food made both me and my boyfriend sick. I was stricken with terrible constipation and he had terrible diarrhea. The food is nearly tasteless. I tried all 4 restaurants and all 4 failed. I think it was the sushi restaurant that finally sent him (my boyfriend) over the edge. It was quite possibly the worst sushi I've ever had in life. It was warm. All of the fish and even the krab was warm and the texture was gooey. The Market Cafe offered a semi decent salad bar, but even after 2 days of eating that I was done. The burgers aren't made from any beef cut that I could recognize. To quote my boyfriend "it was at best a disaster". ๐Ÿ˜ทThe Gym/Spa. This is the only place I really feel I got my money's worth. As I mentioned before, the 90 minute couples massage cost us $400USD it comes with a pass to the aqua therapy area. I could live there. Be sure to try it. ๐Ÿ’†๐ŸฝWe stayed here 3 nights and couldn't get out of there sooner. I was literally in tears. The staff is great. The facilities could use a cosmetic upgrade. And if you're from Alabama, Mississippi or anywhere in Good Ole Southern America, you'll love this place. (a lot of southerns were there). We are on a 16 day trip headed down the Mexican coast and Secrets was the 2nd hotel we stayed at. Hopefully things get better from here. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ

Great staff, food and rooms. Really enjoyable!

Spent two weeks here on a diving vacation and really enjoyed the experience.(we booked our dives with Dressel (Iberostar) rather than Secrets.).Our room was super. We were on the ground floor corner with a swim up pool right off our patio, and at the top of the best slide (takes you straight to the Manatee pool bar!).I had to work a few days during the vacation and found the internet (free!) robust. Our room was clean and spacious. Only complaint was the lack of drawers (cupboards only). The food was superior to other all-inclusive resorts in Cozumel and there was a wide variety of options. Room service was excellent! The SkyBar was the place to be for the sunset - only complaint was too few bartenders for the sunset crowd.The staff were great. Really friendly and attentive. Our entertainment leader Mili was fantastic - she got everyone going and added that extra touch to our stay. The entertainment at night varied, and we didn't participate in everything, but really enjoyed the Fire show and the Old Mexico show. The foam party was a blast! The Manatee Pool area/bar was where the action was.My boyfriend and I had a massage on the last day. It's really hard to find if you follow the map, so ask first (it's right off the Sunscape lobby area). My massage was great, his was so-so. But the sauna and steam room were really nice.Loved it. We will be back!

Subpar for the name

Went for our honeymoon and first are the positives. The grounds were very nice, multiple pools were nice to have, the wait staff serving you on the beach was awesome. Very friendly staff all around grounds. The best restaurant is the French restaurant, no shorts so it's a dressy place. Room service food was bland, don't order the burger. The negative that dropped it down to 3 stars is the room. Out dated, room smelled liked rotten eggs due to the shower not draining the best and there was water dripping from the air conditioner and ceiling by the balcony, created puddles of water. Had maintenance cone out but probably all they did was mop it up. Bed is really hard, felt like sleeping on floor. If they updated and fixed room, would of been 4 or 5 stars.
