My husband and I vacationed at the Valentin Nov 28 - Dec. 5., our 2nd visit in 2012. This was our 4th visit and every time it just gets better! We love it at the Valentine and will return again next year. We like building 5 or 6 and enjoy the beautiful grounds. Food is excellent, service too. The drinks are excellent and you can order all top shelf liquors and there is a martini bar. 1st class all the way. All the restaurant are great except maybe the steak house. Love the Hibachi Grill and L'Alsace. We got room service every morning so we could start our day with coffee and pastries on our balcony. All this is included in the all inclusive price. The house band gets better every year and we always meet people in our age group (50-65). None of that cheesy entertainment that is found at most resorts. Their are some honeymooners but mostly older groups that like to have fun. This a quieter resort but there is lots to do and the pool is beautiful. Glad we do not have to deal with the young party groups although our age group knows how to party when we want to! They are working on the beach area and we spent more time there this visit.
Only l problem this year, we requested building 5 and it was not arranged and ended up in building 4 with 2 double beds in a handicapped room. We were not happy but did get moved the next day to building 5 on the 3rd floor which was our original request. Since this was our 4th visit we thought we should have received our request as returning guests. We were assured this would not happen on our next visit. What bothered us was the fact they tried to blame our travel agent when clearly it was their mistake. Next time We will email before we leave to make sure this does not happen again. This will not deter us from going again though.
We love the Valentin and already thinking of our next trip there. If your are looking for a great holiday at a beautiful resort this is the place to go! We have travelled many places but this is our favorite. See you next year Valentin!
