    Luxurious enough to feel like a royal retreat all while being welcoming enough to be your home!

    Spending time at VIM is like going to your best friend's family home, if your best friend were wealthy, extremely hospitable, and living in a luxurious jungle paradise! We have been 3 times and recommended this resort to everyone we meet who is looking to travel to the Riviera Maya. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous and are in a state of constant meticulous grooming. The 3 different pools provide the perfect setting for every traveler, be it peacefully reading in the shade of the silver pool, floating along the river of the golden pool or living it up with the party people at the main pool. The staff are always nearby and make it appear as though bringing you whatever you may need is their biggest pleasure. And there are so many different types of food, you can always find something you want. From simple burgers and tacos, to seafood and steaks, and all of the international fare as well. We especially love the sea bass at the French restaurant and the secret dessert box at the Indonesian restaurant. There are also many tasty options on the 24 hour room service menu. I've never had a bad meal at any of their restaurants! The night entertainment is terrific and we always have a great time in the sports bar! This year we were able to visit to celebrate the wedding of 2 of our closest friends who decided to hold their ceremony on site based on our recommendations of this amazing resort. VIM made it a truly beautiful experience for all! Once we returned home we immediately started planning our next visit as we will definitely be back as soon as we can!

    Best Resort by far!

    Resort was beautiful. Well taken care of . Service was amazing and very attentive staff. Room Service, Taco Truck, and Churro cart all were an unexpected delicious experience ! I liked the idea of the main pool and quieter golden pool. We did Tequila tasting and then back to quiet side . We will be back for sure !

    The staff was above and beyond fun, helpful and accommodating. I especially appreciated Eduardo. We called for a golf cart to take us to dinner. At that exact time the staff was also getting guests to a wedding reception and handling a huge check in. Normally they arrived in 5-10 minutes. We were worried about losing our reservation, and 1/2 of our group was already there waiting for us. Eduardo was delivering guests and their luggage to their rooms and saw we were distressed. He somehow managed to juggle that along with driving us to our restaurant, which I'm sure wasn't part of his job. He even called ahead to make sure we wouldn't lose our reservation. THANK YOU EDUARDO!

    LOVED our stay!

    I cannot say enough positive about our recent stay here at Valentin. We visisted after hearing great things from others, so we took our adult sons, 22 & 19, to see for ourselves. Usually we are a "Disney Family" so this was the first time getting seperate rooms and doing an all-inclusive together. We found it MORE than comfortable here, not too couple-ish at all. There is really a variety of vacationers here from friends, family, hooneymooners...you name it! Food was great, rooms were comfortable, entertainment was excellent! I want to mention how the staff from the Go Team helped make this one of those best vacations for our family. Again, with young adult sons, there was so much to do during the day from volleyball, pool, games, crafts...you name it! The Go Team members got to know us even though we were there only 4 days and were sure to always try to include our family in the fun. Special shout outs to Lorenzo, Carlos, Isreal, Johanna, Diana, and Isabel for going above and beyond in making this trip so special to us all! We seriouly LOVED them! There is no doubt we will come back to Valentin again. I now know why others consider this such a special place!
