Remy was an amazing seven course French dining experience where presentation was as much importance as taste. Our server, Julien, was from France and was outstanding and we went with his recommendations of two pre-selected courses although you can choose from an ala carte style menu. I’d equate the entire experience similar to Victoria & Albert’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian with the edge going to Remy for ...
Today we where invited by Jose to go get breakfast with him at a non touristy place. At 0930, Juan showed up with his wife and off we went, all seatbeltless. We went to a taqueria and got god knows what bit very good and cheap. We went to little beaches on the east side; full on clothes and everything. We also did what I will call a Christ walk-we were barefoot and walked ...
... appetizers and wine. We met two guys from Florida and shared cruise stories. They left and a father and daughter joined us - they are from BC, and we talked with them for a while.
Then we headed to Portofino. Our waiter was an interesting one, kinda reminded us of Vincent Pierce and was kinda creepy. Appetizer was shrimp risotto, just okay, then ceaser salad, better than the main dining room, and for main, Rob had steak and I had the ...
... did and they all said they tasted just like mint. Roberto then found a plant whose sap is a dye, he “tattooed” us all so we would be worthy to enter the sacred caves!! At one stage he found a hole and started poking a piece of grass inside it to coax the occupant out... after 5 mins he tells us the huge tarantula inside didn't want to play today... hmmm ok, yep I'm definitely ok with that!!!
The cave tubing itself was fun, ...
Dive day #2
Dive #1: Santa Rosa Wall
This was Paul and Emily's first wall dive ever. The current wasn’t too strong, but we still were able to relax and let the ocean push us along. We had a number of swim-through tunnels, which was nice as well. There were many large coral formations.
Dive #2: San Francisco Wall

Historical Traveler Reviews Aura Cozumel Grand Resort
I would say this place exceeded my expectations. If you like spa treatment and massages, 5 star dining, excellent service, beautiful views, beach sunsets, clear water, relaxing/nice rooms, and overall affordable vacations this place is for you. I was intending on staying at the Sabor and we were placed at Aura. Jetty and Miguel worked the front desk and were very helpful. When we arrived we were greeted with champaign and Jetty showed us to our room. My first impression was "wow, this is like a dream." The view was incredible. As the sun goes down all the balconies have orange lights and the colors were so relaxing. The dining was great. Hava grill is where we ate most of our meals. We only stayed 4 days and there are so many different amenities that I feel neglectful on my review..
OMG what a paradise. This was our first time to Mexico. We arrive in Cozumel at the Sabor at the Wyndam and find out we got upgraded at no cost. Daniel takes us to see the room we got upgraded too and omg absolutely beautiful. We had a whirlpool tub, shower, king size bed, couch, table and 2 chairs, desk, fresh fruit, and a flat screen. 24 hour room service. We had our own private patio with bed and pillows, table for two, access to the pool and direct access to the beach. The view from our room was absolutely gorgeous. Every morning we would see the cruise ships cross on their way to the pier. Walks along the beach in the morning were breathe taking. The hut had a great staff. Angie the chef what a nice lady and her food out of this world. Carlos and Israel the best bartenders we've every had. We celebrated my wifes birthday there and Angie made her a birthday cake and the boys made her a special drink out of a pineapple. All the staff at the resturant and lounge were very friendly and at our every need. This place is perfect for a nice quiet, relaxing get away. We highly recommend you vacation here.
We arrived the Aura the evening of Feb. 15. around 7:30pm. Check in was quick and easy, we were scheduled to stay at the Wyndham in the SABOR section. There were two couples so we paid and upgraded to the two bedroom suite. The room was very nice. You could tell we were the first ones to stay in room 1030. The bell boy showed us around. The suite was 1500 sq feet, had a dining room table w/a fridge stocked with Dos Equis, water, Coke, Coke Light and a couple of juices. There was a nice size deck off of the main floor, 2 sliding glass doors that opened up from the main living room or dining room to the deck. The bedrooms were good size with their own bathroom and huge showers. Their were robes in the closet, make up mirrors, hair dryers, scale (who wants to see that on vaca) and a safe but only in one of the bedrooms. There was a spiral staircase that went to an upstairs huge deck that overlooks the resort and the ocean. The view was beautiful but no electricity or no lawn furniture up there. The bellboy said he'd have someone take care of it tomorrow. By 3pm the next day no one came so we asked again and they did fix the electrical. Never did get any furniture up there though, they said they didn't have any yet but if we wanted to they could send the bell boy up to move the furniture that was inside the suite outside for us. We didn't have them do it though. It wasn't that important. They are very contemporary in design, clean lines w/soft colors. The beds were super comfortable.
We just spent a heavenly week at Aura @ Wyndham. It was glorious! We were supposed to stay at the Sabor and they upgraded us. Ashley checked us in and she was wonderful. Bubbley was waiting for us. The Bell man Oswaldo took us to our Suite. "Oswaldo was wondedrful" It was amazing. It opened up right on the sand beach. The porch had a table, chairs and a large bed with pillows. Although the mosquitos were there. Bring bug spray. The bed was so comfortable. The shower was one of those cascadeing deals. It was too much!
If you like great and convenient access to diving, swimming and other water sports and staying at a quiet, beautiful place with excellent service, great food and furnishings then you should consider the Aura Cozumel Resort in Cozumel. We stayed there Dec 31 - Jan 5 and received 5-star service.
As good as it gets!
This is a very unique hotel, small, boutique style, top-of-the-line service and great food. If you want a bigger experience, just walk next door to the big 400 room Wyndham Cozumel Resort & Spa which you have access to. Roof-top sun decks, private 6x20 lap pools, swim-up rooms, and lunch served on the beach are my kind of luxury experience. The prices for this resort will most definitely go up, so book while you can get a great introductory price.
Aussi bien que possible!
C'est un hôtel original, intime, charmant, avec un service au top du top et une cuisine délicieuse. Si vous voulez quelque chose de plus grand, allez juste à côté au grand Wyndham Cozumel Resort & Spa de 400 chambres, vous y avez accès. Les solariums sur le toit, les piscines de 6m sur 20 m, les chambres en rez-de-piscine, et le déjeuner servi sur la plage sont tout à fait mon idée d'un séjour luxueux. Les prix de cet hôtel vont très certainement monter, alors allez-y vite tant que vous pouvez obtenir un prix de lancement.
We stayed at this resort from December 27, 2007 thru January 2, 2008. This was my first visit to Cozumel and I was not disappointed. This island has more of a Caribbean feel than a Mexico/Cancun feel.
My husband and I stayed in the Aura section of the Wyndham Hotel in Cozumel between Christmas and New Years Eve, 2007. It was a beautiful experience.
Avec mon mari, nous sommes descendus dans la partie « Aura » du Wyndham Hotel à Cozumel entre Noël et le jour de l'an, 2007. Ce fut fantastique.
