We just returned yesterday from the Valentin and we were not dissapointed. We took my daughter for her 18th bday and grad gift, this was her first trip to Mexico and she loved it! This time we stayed in a basic suite and it was still very nice. Normally we stay in an Emerald Suite and that is beautiful as... More

A group of us stayed at the Valentine Imperial Maya Resort (adult only resort) back in March 2014. I absolutely love an all inclusive vacation and have stayed at many different resorts. But I must say this was definitely the best. From the beaches to the food it was incredible. One thing that we really enjoyed was that besides the... More

The Valentin Imperial Maya (VIM) is an adults only all inclusive located on a quiet stretch of beach about halfway between Cancun and Playa Del Carmen in an area called Playa Del Secreto. As you may have read in other reviews, the place is huge and covered with lush vegetation. Beach. The beach is about 900 meters long with a... More

We stayed at the Valentin for our wedding anniversary. The staff was very accommodating and timely with all requests. We enjoyed dinner at the Italian, French and Hibachi restaurants. All were tasty, I just didn't understand the up charge for lobster dinners. The resort was big enough that you could have the best of both worlds; quiet and romantic when... More

July 19 – July 24, 2014 I can’t say enough about this resort; beautiful, well kept, relaxing. Restaurants: dinner at the Japanese was excellent so good we went back again. Italian; the food was excellent and so were the choices in their wine cellar, but the services at the Italian restaurant was bar none the best I’ve ever had and... More

This was our first time visiting this resort (7/21 to 7/27). From the time we (5 adults) were dropped off by the airport shuttle service, it was a complete pleasure to be there. Our first greeting was "Welcome Home". I knew then this was a place I would enjoy. I cannot say enough about the VIM staff. Everybody was so... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon and besides a couple of early hiccups it was amazing! The staff were just brilliant and the quality of the hotel overall was top class! We didn't have a bad meal in the 2 weeks of our stay and the drink options were just staggering! There were 3 members of staff who really stood... More

Hotel is nice. Rooms are large and clean. Food is ok. The only real complaint was there is no real fruit in the drinks and generally speaking the drinks weren't very good. Staff was willing to help and pool is a lot of fun. Hotel has a lot of entertainment. Would like more options for dinner where you can wear... More

We stayed at the Valentin for a couple's getaway. When we arrived at the hotel we were escorted into the lobby and greeted with a drink. We waited 10-15 minutes to check in. After check in we were driven in a golf cart to our building. We were in the silver suites which are located in building 1 and 2,... More

My husband and I recently traveled to Valentin Imperial Maya for our honeymoon. The grounds at VIM are impeccably kept and absolutely beautiful. Our Junior Deluxe suite was of adequate size with a sitting area, as well as a first floor patio. Our one complaint is that daily servicing of our room was inconsistent. On some evenings, we'd return from... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Valentin Imperial Maya is the new definition of paradise. Our 5 star Adults-Only (18+) All-Inclusive Resort is located a short 25 minutes from Cancun International Airport in the Riviera Maya. Set amid lavish gardens on a half-mile-long stretch of white sand beach named Playa Del Secreto (The Secret Beach), this magnificent award-winning resort boasts one of the largest swimming pools in Mexico. The location is ideal as one can easily reach Cancun and the world famous Mayan archaeological sites such as Tulum, Coba, and Chichen Itza, yet be removed enough to enjoy the casually elegant ambience of Valentin Imperial Maya. Escape into a world where your every wish is our command. Come indulge yourself....You deserve it! Valentin Imperial Maya Hotel & Spa is committed to preserve the environment by reducing the consumption of natural resources, promoting among our guests and staff, protection and respect for the environment through good environmental practices. ... more   less
