How are the renovations coming along? Any of the restaurants switched over to "Sunscape's" brands yet? Did you stay oceanfront?

They are working from 7-8am to 8-9pm on the Sabor side. The buildings they are working in do not have any rooms available. Did not notice the noise, they were painting when we left yesterday so all they have to do is put in the new furniture in those buildings and move on to the next one. It does not switch over to Sunscape till April 2013. The Aura side switched to Secrets while we there..new signage everywhere over night. The restaurants...The Italian Roberto's closed on Friday and is now Portofino's (Italian) in the Time Share section, but available to everyone. They are going to put in a Pizza Restaurant below it in the future. Roberto's will become a Mexican Restaurant and the Main Buffet Restaurant will be more main stream. We stayed Oceanfront. Room #2611. It has not been renovated yet, but we were happy with our room. They moved the one bar that was on the beach to literally two steps from our room which we liked. That bar closes at 6pm so no late crowds hanging right outside your room. We would have liked it to stay open till 8 or 10pm. Beach chairs always available right outside the room with palapas The were working on and replacing furniture on the side by swim up bar. Did not notice construction noise there either.

Thanks for that. We're traveling in march, so even though its before grand opening, I'm hoping most renos will be done. My biggest concern (if you wanna call it that) is whether the 4 rooms at the back of each oceanfront villa (26-32) are part of the oceanfront category, or is it just the four rooms facing the water?

Good question, but one I can't answer for you. There is a Facebook page where you can get an email address to ask them specifically They usually answer in 24 hours. Here is an email address I used....please make sure to let them know that you will be staying on the Sabor side. reservas@auraresortscozumel.com

Hi there,

We're headed to Sabor on Friday (21st), booked in an Oceanfront room. It sounds like things are reasonably under control at the moment, which is a huge relief. How was the food at Portofino's? Is it just Roberto's with a different name? And the snackbar remains open, in addition to the buffet and Portofino's?

Thanks!

The food is pretty much the same at Portofino's just some slight differences. The snack bar is open, although in my opinion they could give you more options. The buffet, Portofino's and the snack bar are your only options for food. That was as of Sunday Dec 16th.

Did it look like more restaurants were coming soon or would we probably be looking at just the 3 by end of January? Also, regarding the bar...are all bars closed by 6 or just the one that was closest to you?

The old Roberto's should be getting worked on soon, but I would count on 3. the pizza place they said not until later this year. As for the bars, the beach bar by us closes at 6pm and so does the pool swim up bar. Bar Azul in the lobby and the main bar by the snack bar are open till 2ish..
