My husband and I stayed at the VIM 10/18-10/22 - the only negative is that we were only there 4 nights!! I had really high expectations because A: I was in the travel industry for 12 years and have stayed at many all inclusives, and B: I personally read about 3000 of the reviews and looked at 4000 pictures!! This resort totally exceeded my expectations! Like so many others, we are already planning a trip back next October.
The staff, the service, the grounds, the location and the beach make this resort a stand out.
Yes, the food is very good, but not all great. Depends on your taste. For us, French and Indonesian were the best. We did upgrade from the basic room to the silver suite to get on a higher floor. We had the room with the hot tub in between the bathroom and the bedroom, which is a little odd, but we decided since we had it, we'd take full advantage and had a relaxing, romantic soak 3 nights. Makes you sleep like a baby after a day of sun, tequila, food and fun!!
A stay at the VIM is as close to perfect as you will find. It will be our only vacation destination for many years!
Thank you to the VIM staff for all you do-
