First, let me state that we love the resort and the staff are wonderful. We will definitely be back to the resort, and we would highly recommend this resort to people with similar tastes and life styles.

We originally booked a different hotel because we wanted to stay closer to Playa but were so disappointed with where we stayed (despite it being a very highly rated resort) that we canceled in the first night and finished our vacation at Valentin Imperial Maya....More
Just returned from 5 nights in a Golden category junior suite. We were on the second floor with our balcony overlooking the pool. The bathroom is large with a shower big enough for 4-6 people! The large bathtub was not visible in the bedroom area....More
My husband and I recently stayed at the Valentin Imperial for 6 night during the last week of August. This trip was a lot of firsts for us! First trip to Cancun (only been to Cozumel via cruise once), first tiem at an all-inclusive resort...More
Ok so this place is AMAZING! The restaurant food could be a bit better, but still was good. Breakfast and lunch buffet were great! Even though my GF had bronchitis. Poor girl maybe got a total of one hour a night sleep. Regardless she was...More

What is a deciding factor for you may be different than what rings the bell for others. Do you like activities, or to veg, Small resort, or large, Beach person, or pool person. I've been to VIM and ERC (but not EPM), in fact checked out of VIM Sunday. Have already booked my trip for next year. For me, between the two, price is the deciding factor. Depending on when you are going, Excellence is running super cheap a year out, but is more expensive normally. ERC is less than EPM. Pros for both (erc brand)...great swim ups, no dinner reservations required (except for Teppanyaki), no wrist bands, nightly entertainment, gorgeous rooms and grounds, plenty of umbrellas and loungers, top shelf liquor at both. ERC pros...Lobster is included, more intimate resort (smaller acreage wise), easier access to Puerto Morelos if you want to walk into town, I found the food to be slightly better at ERC, "secret" box for room service where they drop it off and pick it up, liquor in your room for the basic rooms. Pros for VIM, basic room is much less than the basic room at Excellence, larger property with lots of foliage so you have more of a jungle feel, VIM seemed to have more daytime activities, and I liked the beach better at VIM (further from town, so less foot traffic), but EPM might be better than ERC. Cons- men's dress code for dinner, but that is standard at most of the nicer ( and not so nicer ) resorts. There are really no other great cons for me, so it's coming down to cost for my next visit.
