Where to start? The staff were incredibly hospitable from the check-in desk to the room attendants and everyone in between. The property itself is beautiful and the sunrises over the eastern horizon were breathtaking. As we were on a trip to celebrate our 10th anniversary we decided on a Golden Suite which was possibly one of the nicer rooms I've stayed in including stays in W and Ritz Carlton Hotels across Canada and the US. All other guests were either honeymooners, retirees or other couples like us celebrating a special event so even the "party pool" was relaxing to sit by and I didnt have to deal with the loud and lude behavior usually present on many resorts. That being said we spent a lot of our time by the lazy river enjoying regular bar service to our sun beds. This place is worth every penny. If you are debating this hotel versus another I assure you you will not be disappointed here. Can't wait to return. More>

Just perfect. Tiis is our day 3 and here we are already making a comment on Trip advisor!. One of the better club that we have done out of our 20+ clubs visited in the last years! A big thank to Uciel for the great yoga and pilates classes in the morning. More>

Fifth Stay

Our yearly vacation at the VIM is not only for leisure, but an investment in our personal health. This was our fifth visit to the VIM and I can honestly say each visit gets better and better. The service offered by all its employees is the heart of this resort. Gilberto at Mar y Tierra was fantastic as always. Angel at LA Hacienda was also outstanding. Xochitl and Lorena at Le Marche were great too. Honestly, so many superstars to mention in this space. Our first year, My wife and I visited alone. This past year, our party grew to eight. Next year, God willing it will be 10-12! The legend of the VIM keeps growing. More>

Paradise in the Mayan Riviera!

Just returned from our first and not last visit to VIM! This was our 7th trip to Mexico, but our best ever. This resort is over the top magnificent and very reasonably priced for an AO. Previously visited Iberostar Del mar, Lindo and Maya as a couple and with family and enjoyed greatly but VIM exceeded our expectations in food, service, entertainment and overall ambiance! Lots of honeymooners and couples of all ages celebrating anniversaries and other events. Lots of fun groups of couples traveling together and a ton of returning guests, and I can see why. Service is on point here- every bartender, concierge, restaurant servers hosts and managers, housekeeping staff, go team entertainers, cocktail servers at pool and beach, staff photographers, management all gracious welcoming and willing to do whatever it takes to make ours and every other guests stay unforgettable ! Can't begin to name everyone - here's just a few that I remember- Teresa server at Italian restaurant extremely kind and took exceptional care of us on our first night. Miguel at sports bar extremely friendly every time we stopped in. Cocktail servers Imelda and Yessxira (sp) are only ones who's names I remember but there were so many that gave us excellent drink service at pool and beach . Very nice young gentleman who waited on us several times at casual lunch area right behind pool bar. And of course the phenomenal GO team- Dora Xplorer, Hector, Leonardo,Bryan the Mayan , Angel, Uciel, Lucy, and Amelia and their managers. Loved Aqua Zumba, pool cycling, water aerobics , all the fun games etc and just watching this team dance and interact with guests. They weren't pushy - if you didn't want to get involved they respected that - but I recommend trying something- volleyball water polo cooking or Spanish or dance lessons or any of the contests or fitness classes in pool or gym. I got to know a few in this group fairly well and enjoyed conversations with them- they all communicate very well although English is a second language for most. A la cart dining with no reservations was wonderfully easy . Just got a pager and waited enjoying drinks in martini or sports bar or strolling around shopping. Food was outstanding ! Celebrated Mexican Independence Day on September 15! A blast tequila tasting by pool and show with mariachi band at night . And the incredible Imperial Band in the courtyard every night playing music from the 80s 90s and current as well- all very danceable great mix of contemporary pop, classic rock, country, and Latin inspired all well played and extremely awesome lead vocals - both male and female. Very talented group. Almost forgot Veronica photographer from Venezuela who took great pix of us in pool and met us later at beach for more . She was very patient and took some great shots- wish her well in her photography career! Overall weather was fantastic sun every day just rain or clouds for a minute here and there. And the beach was incredible - huge improvement from last summer with the sargassum which was just a natural phenomena but affected the water and sand so as to make it not as enjoyable . This year perfect water with the angel fish swimming right up to you. And you go walk for miles on the beach either way. It was hard to choose where to spend more time - pool or beach! All in all an unbelievable trip celebrating our 32nd anniversary ! We will be back and can't wait to smell that lobby and hear everyone say "Welcome Home!" Laura and Martin Bel Air MD USA More>

Amazing experience
Dana M, Jackson Heights, New York, United States
Mon Sep 26 18:07:19 EDT 2016
Came here for our honeymoon on June 13th-June 21st. Let me tell you something...we enjoyed it so much, we returned for another 5 days in August. Most of the staff remembered that we were there prior and were happy to see us again. We enjoyed everything about the resort. The staff was always friendly and the restaurants were always serving great food. We stayed so many nights, we were able to try each restaurant (they have 7) and they always impressed me. The presentation of the food was amazing and something out of those cooking shows you watch at home. And let me give you a few hints to really EXPAND your experience staying at Valentin imp maya. If you want to head out to Playa del Carmen, you dont have to spend tons of money on special transportation companies that take you places($18 for special transportation by the hote). 20 pesos(around $1.25) can get you on the Collectivo (collective bus) outside of the resort, that most of the locals use to get around to work etc. Its a small van that you can hail by leaving the resort, crossing the highway and waiting for the van that comes by with the words "playa" painted on the windshield. Hop on when it stops, and when you stop at the bus depot in Playa, you get off and pay your 20 pesos per person. If you want to go farther from there like Tulum, you can just hop on another bus from there that goes to Tulum for another 40 pesos per person. Dont be afraid of these buses. If you just say the name of the place you're going, they usually can tell you yes or no and they speak english if you prefer not to practice your Spanish. I like using my Spanish when I go to latin american countries, I feel closer to the people there and I feel like they respect me more for learning their language. I was born in NYC so learning Spanish came with the territory, and I am always eager and willing to use it and Valentin Imp Maya helped me with my Spanish and learning new words each day I was there. Uciel from pool biking was amazing. He also led the Zumba with Brian the Mayan(whos not really mayan LOL) and they were all amazing. Pacu from Barrakuda Scuba was a really cool guy and we got a great deal to Dive Dos Ojos with an amazing Guide Isabel Dominguez. Probably the best diving of my life. Alexander was also a great guide when we went snorkeling with Sea turtles in Akumal. Veronica in the Privilege concierge was very helpful to us and I always appreciated her help when we needed it the most during our first visit. I love seeing the wild animals running around, especially the gorgeous coatimundi that run wild around the resort. We found out we can have them as pets here!!! WOW. The sounds of the wild birds is like music to my ears, and the iguanas are everywhere, so watch where you step so you don't hurt them! I could go on and on and on about why this place is the best place to go, but you just need to go to really experience it. And please don't limit yourself to the resort, as beautiful as it is. Tulum, the temples at Chitchin Itza and everything else await you. GO HAVE AVENTURAS!(adventures). I love Mexico. Their hard working people and heritage is amazing and I respect them very much for everything they do. Even though this place is all inclusive,tip them well, they deserve it because they work very hard to make your experience shine through the rest of the trash hotels and resorts you have been to in the past.
