Looks very nice. I think it's on the current site of the Aura Cozumel Grand.

Oh, is it a take over then, not a new build? Either way looks absolutely beautiful.

My understanding is that a lot of renovation has been going on, and yes, being a Secrets, it's AO.

It's actually a takeover of a takeover, if I'm not mistaken. I can't remember what the name of it was, before Wyndham took it over though.

The sister resort (Sabor) will turn into a Sunscape resort, and the Aura will be rebranded as a Secrets.

It's exciting news, because if there is one thing Cozumel lacks, it's AO AI resorts. It will be nice to the Secrets stamp being brought to Aura. Its reviews have sort of been all over the place.

On Google Earth, it's still labeled "Aura Windham". It is 8 miles (13 km) south of the main town of San Miguel, on the west side of Coz.

If I am not mistaken, this is a takeover of takeover of a takeover. This is the hotel (I believe) is the one that had that long, ongoing Legionnaire's Disease outbreak that prompted a US Center for Disease Control Warning. Something was very wrong with the water system, causing people to contract the disease. Windham ran away very fast from the disaster. I hope Secrets has better luck - and that they clean up the water filtration system.

I just learned of the new Secrets in Cozumel today. How exciting! I didn't realize there was a problem with the water system when the Wyndham owned it, but, the reviews of the Aura just were never stellar enough to convince me that it was worth going to. Yes, hopefully the Secrets chain will be able to get the problem under control. Would love to visit it in the Spring.
