Thanks Carlos and the whole staff for welcoming us, taking care of everything we needed, and pointed us in the right direction everyday! The hotel is very clean and well kept. The views are awesome from every level. The restaurant is excellent. We were close enough to walk into town when ever we wanted. We had a great spa treatment......

Cozy, private, friendly and HAPPY! Aura is a great place to unwind and just chill. A beautiful location, hospitable staff, and amenities most anyone would ever need - beach, pool, food, drink - AND "downtown" is just a :10 walk away. We'll return.

When planning our trip, we were definitely influenced by the top rating this hotel received on TripAdvisor, and after staying here we could not agree more! This was the perfect fit for our vacation get-away! The arrival experience was great, with sweeping views, ocean breezes, cool towels on arrival, and sweet smiling faces checking us in. Carlos was an amazing...

We loved the hotel. The staff was very courteous, helpful and friendly. We typically ate breakfast at the hotel's restaurant right on the beach. They serve excellent meals throughout the day. The hotel's location is very near to the central business district and along the paved beach walkway, yet the setting is quiet. The hotel is beautiful, tropical and interesting....

I stayed here with my family for 2 nights before we moved to our condo. The place is incredibly decorated, the staff is amazing and the location is unbeatable. My kids loved boogie boarding, using the waterslides at the pool and talking to the resident parrot! We can't wait to come back!

The Aura Del Mar is an amazing hotel with a spectacular location. The hotel has ceramic tile floors and beautifully carved wood doors and luscious well established plants growing everywhere with tropical flowers. The rooms are spacious and clean and the beds are quite comfortable. We traveled with two other couples that stayed there also and all of our rooms...
