I'm starting to get a little concerned with all of the up and down reviews about Aura. We are booked for August, and spent quite a bit of money to stay here. To the people who have been... why do you think the reviews of Aura are all over the place? If you look at Secrets other properties, the reviews are very consistent, but not Aura. Why do you suppose that is? I know people keep saying to not compare Aura to the other Secrets properties, but if you booked Aura based on your experience at another Secrets resort I don't think that it's out of the question to want to hear comparisons. When you go with certain brands you expect a certain level of quality... We have stayed at some smaller resorts, and some of the mega resort all inclusives in the Caribbean. I'm okay with a smaller resort, and I'm okay with "island time"... As long as the place is long on quality I'm okay with a lack of quantity. As this is a Secrets property there comes a certain level of service / quality expected... Not all Secrets are "mega resorts"... why would their smaller / medium sized resorts have consistent feedback, but not this one? Are these just growing pains, because of the recent take over? These are the questions that I keep coming back to as we wait for our vacation. I'm probably over thinking it, but seeing a slew of not so good reviews doesn't give me warm fuzzy feelings.
