Relaxing vacation

Valentin was great for a relaxing trip to Mexico. The beach is huge and well kept. Get there early to get a spot under the umbrellas. The only down-side to the resort is that it's kind of sleepy - lots of honeymooners and not much of a party atmosphere. The adults-only aspect was wonderful not to have any kids around.

Not 5 Star, But Not Deserving of a 4

The Valentin missed on perfection, but I'm not sure exactly why. The grounds are gorgeous and amazingly clean. The staff is beyond friendly. The room was fantastic. It is hard to explain, but I am tempted to go back, but also felt that there was something unrealized missing. It is to the point that I couldn't help but recommend it to anyone, but wouldn't describe it as life-changing. The Great: The grounds, staff, room, privacy, room service. The Good, but not Great: Food, the transparency of events. The Bad: Nothing. Recommendations: Get a swim-up suite. Amazing room, incredibly close to a bar. Privacy with the two lounge chairs by the room. You don't need to the big (huge) pool when you have a swim-up suite. Best restaurant by far is Ginger.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Use USA Transfers to get to and from the airport. Tip $1 USD every time you order a drink and the staff will go the extra distance. They will get to know you after a day or so and will make your wife wonderful...whether it be an umbrella to the room, stocking your in-suite refrigerator. or squeezing the oranges for a screwdriver. The staff earns their keep and then some. Every last person I met on the staff was unbelievably friendly.

Great Resort

The resort grounds and location were amazing. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The only issue we had was our room wasn't ready for a few hours after the check in time. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Every restaurant had excellent food and staff and the we got right in each evening. Overall a very excellent resort.

Couples Escape - Adults Only!!!

VIM is incredible in every aspect from the time you arrive to the time you leave. They handle every need and request on a personal level. The resort is a tropical Paradise in every way from grounds, environment, people, delicious food, entertainment, dining establishments, etc etc. Don't hesitate on this resort and getaway experience! Get to this resort, to this beautiful beach and let them take care of you 5 star for much less than other resorts while never sacraficing value or amenities in any way. Just do it! You will return and feel not only like you had an amazing escape/vaca but like you received every bit the value you expect. The staff are the best and treat you like a king or queen... heading back for 6 nights mid-Jan 2014.

Relaxing by the Pool

The Hotel upgraded us (without us asking) to a better room for free so that we could be in the same building with the two other couples on the trip, which was awesome. The rooms were clean and tidy. The only non-standard aspects of the room were the light switches and the toilet door. There were around 10 switches in the main part of the room alone. I think the hotel intended that vacationers could 'customize' the light in their room, which you could, after you spent some time flipping figuring out which ones to use and which ones to ignore... by the end of the week, I still would hit the wrong switch on a regular basis. The toilet had a glass door, which would not have been problematic if the rest of the bathroom was actually separated from the room with more than a window sheer #the jaccuzzi tub was half in the bathroom and half in the bedroom, with a window sheer on the bedroom side#. Be prepared to either "really get to know" your travel companion, schedule personal time, or make trips to the main building. The pool was gorgeous and we spent most of our time there. It was perfectly relaxing. The beach was clean and relaxing as well. I really appreciated the ease of using American money #for tips and buying items from the gift shop#, and the English language at the hotel. One word of caution: if you run across the one or two employees who do not speak english, and you need something from them, please remember you are in a foreign country and the fact that 99% of the staff know English at all is amazing. #The 'normal' crepes station chief was off one morning, and I watched a line of Americans get angry as the substitute chief struggled to understand them. They responded by raising their voices. All they had to do was point at what they wanted, smile, and say gracias, and that would have fixed the problem#. The food was excellent, be prepared to gain weight. Also, if you want to do hibatchi, make sure to be at the concierge desk when it opens. My favorite place to eat was the French place, although I think the Mexican restaurant was probably the most fun #it was sort of surreal and tongue-in-cheek how they emulated an American Mexican restaurant, in Mexico#. The only time we spent off-resort was a trip into town. It was worthwhile, and we felt safe. Overall a very, very enjoyable trip that we are considering taking again next year.

Wonderful for the 3rd time!

Everything about this resort was great! This is our 3rd time and it just keeps getting better. We spent all of our time at the beach and it has a great area to swim. There are also plenty of palapas as well. If you want ones on the front row, you need to be up early. The food was great and not having to make reservations is alway a plus since you never know what you are doing each day.
