    Trip #16 and it just gets better!

    It was my 16th trip and it is truly going home every time. Although some of my favorite people are no longer there, I make new friends and family members on each trip. The staff is always warm and welcoming and ready to help in any way. The food is fantastic. My only complaint was the night we ate french the service wasn't up to par and we had to wait too long on the food. It tasted great though. We were upgraded to the swim up and I personally didn't care for it. I am a beach person and did not get in the pool the whole trip. Next year I will stick to the upper floors. The shows have been upgraded to keep them fresh. The Imperial Band is awesome. The drinks are always great. Sonya makes the best margaritas and Edwardo makes the best mimosas on the beach. Nallely makes breakfast fun, and Jesus is always so welcoming. Jared is so helpful and always had my beach cabana ready every morning before I got there. In short, although there have been staff changes, It is still home and I am booking trip # 17 soon. I love me some VIM!

    We came here for our honeymoon. The staff was extremely professional and friendly. The room was beautiful and clean! We would definitely return again someday to relive all of the amazing memories we made here! There were two distinct experiences one could have here depending on the location room and where you frequented at the resort. We wanted a relaxed, romantic trip and were able to have that!

    We just returned from the Valentin last night! We used their transportation company which was hassle free but an extra cost. Piece of mind & feeling safe was worth the money. The staff was so awesome! You were treated very well and our room was always cleaned once or twice a day!! The grounds are beautiful & well kept as well as the pool & bathrooms! We were able to save our seats at the pool & they didn’t mind filling our Yetti mugs everyday. The beach & ocean was just gorgeous!! There were vendors on it but were friendly & not pushy. We met our friends each night & at the pool & had a blast!! Our favorite restaurant was French & La Mar steakhouse was delicious. The hibachi grill you have to make reservations at 9 am.but fills up quickly! The shows in the evening were entertaining but could be better. Don’t miss the Michael Jackson impersonator, all of the dancers were professional! Burlesque show was probably second best. The guys were very happy with the pole dancer! Lol! The martini bar was great! It was an amazing time. We would go back there again.

    Second time just as wonderful

    If you are looking for a luxury adults only resort this is it! Service is impeccable. It is safe enough for a girl’s trip. You will feel pampered the entire time. Valentin Imperial is a resort that is wonderful for any special occasion you may have in your adult life with exceptions being bachelor or bachelorette parties.

    Exceptional service in a beautiful setting

    It was our first time at VIM this past week and we had the most amazing vacation! Top three loves: 1) The exceptional service! From the restaurant staff (Carlos at La Hacienda) to the Go Team (Anna) to the server on the beach (Edgar) we wanted for nothing. Room service arrived promptly, the cleaning staff did a wonderful job and the grounds were immaculate. It’s the best service I’ve ever received at any resort. 2)The natural beauty. The beach, the lagoon, the jungle, the grounds, the animals... breathtaking! I could have spent half of my day sitting on the balcony watching the birds. The other half on the beach and in the ocean. 3)The food. Lots to choose from between restaurants, buffet and room service. Our favourite was La Hacienda and ordering room service for breakfast. I loved how they took such good care of us at the restaurants, making it a whole experience. Other things we loved: Always room under a palapa at the beach Snacks Turn down service Entertainment Walkable grounds Bike tour Gym Dressing up at night Cooking classes Stormy nights Fresh grilled seafood at the lunch buffet Ease of check in and check out The one thing I’d love to see an improvement on is the drink mixes. I feel they are too sweet and have a weird after taste. We ended up ordering margaritas, mojitos and margaritas with no syrup. I landed on vanilla vodka, club soda and a splash of pineapple juice. We will be back and will recommend this beautiful resort to all our friends. Thanks VIM for an amazing experience!
