    Thank you for sharing your experiences at the Aurora -- I'm glad you enjoyed July 4 on the rooftop deck. Hopefully we'll see you again soon; the view from our ocean view rooms is breathtaking.

    I'm sorry to hear that your expectations weren't met on your recent getaway. Unfortunately space -- and bandwith -- can be at a premium on an island. We've re-evalutated our breakfast and will soon be making some upgrades. I hope you enjoy your next Catalina...More
