    Fantastic Vacation

    We went with a large group of friends. The staff was welcoming and helpful from the minute we arrived. We really enjoyed taking classes with Viri and Fernie in the pool! The spinning classes were no joke! We enjoyed the food very much and had a great time at the pools and on the beach. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Don’t take the dress code lightly! Men definitely need to follow the rules!! We took one excellent excursion with Barakuda Scuba. I would definitely go back!

    2nd Trip

    This was our second trip to VIM in the past 12 months and enjoyed every minute of it again. Shout out to Julian from the Go Team who remembered us from our previous visit and the wonderful service from Jesus at L Alsace. Seaweed still bad but they do their best to keep the beach clean. Room was spotless and cleaned perfectly every day. Entertainment and activities are excellent too. I do not remember their names but the 3 servers at Don Miguel were outstanding and knew our drink preferences by the second night. Will be going back again soon.

    Great Place for a Honeymoon

    We traveled to the Valentin for our honeymoon and had a wonderful experience. We did the golden suite. The room had a tub and also view of the ocean and lazy river pool. The room was a great size and was very quite around the area. The food at every single restaurant is amazing. We especially liked the Indian, Italian, and French restaurants. Service for every meal was absolutely wonderful. We also bought the dinner on the beach and had a wonderful time. For the dinner on the beach, you are right next to the ocean. It was a very nice experience for a honeymoon. At the pool there are so many fun activities that take place. The entertainment staff is wonderful! I especially enjoyed the activities with Fernie and Julian with the water bike and water zumba classes! The beach was also very beautiful. There is some seaweed in the water, but we were able to still swim in the ocean. There is a little more walking to get from our room to the restaurants, but a shuttle is able to pick you up and the area is very well lit. Overall, We had a very great vacation and would recommend the Valentin for your vacation.

    Fun and relaxing

    We just came back from VIM yesterday and enjoyed our trip very much! We especially enjoyed the service with Melina in Mar &Tierra restaurant. We dined with her almost everyday, she made us fill very comfortable as if we were friends with great conversation. We also did a half day excursion with mystic adventures. It was SO worth the money! The cenotes are absolutely beautiful and the ATV ended with excursion with a perfect thrill!
