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.

Beautiful hotel, Wonderful people, Insufficient facilities

The room, the food, the grounds, the wide beach, the large pool, the staff were all wonderful. The adults-only, week long vacation was very relaxing and was exactly what we were looking for. The Valentin Imperial Maya has a couple opportunities, however: 1. find more ways to offer the mostly caucasian guests, shade on the beach & poolside. When the resort is busy, the only way to ensure shade is to awake before 7am and reserve a spot with your belongings. 2. find better ways to accommodate guests at dinner. With a no reservations policy, making guests wait for almost an hour, when often the restuarant has many open tables is not ideal, especially since one restuarant is closed each week night . With the above said, these are minor blips to an excellent vacation and when we return to Playa del Carmen we will more than likely stay at the Valentin Imperial Maya.

Great Vacation

My partner and I traveled here for our 11 year anniversary and we absolutely LOVED it! At first glace we didn't think it would be very LGBT friendly, but we were wrong. After just a couple of das there we realized just how many of us there were at the resort. We ended making several friends during our trip. The hotel staff was also very gay friendly and have several LGBT members on their staff. Room: Our room was amazing. We stayed in one of their Emerald Suites and it was beautiful. Not really huge but it was very romantic. The view from our balcony in room 12206 looked like a postcard. The bathroom was great. It has a HUGE jacuzzi that you could access from the room or from the balcony. Pool: The pool was very nice. It did need a little bit of maintainance but nothing major. It had two very different sides. One side was the loud party side and one side was the quiet more relaxed side. You could get to either side by swimming under the bridge. There is also a small lazy river type pool in front of the golden rooms but we didn't use it. Food: The food was great. We ate at the Ginger (our favorite), the Mexican, the Italian, and the Indonesian. We also at at the buffet for breakfast and lunch. There is also a lunch sit down restaurant by the beach which was good. The Ginger was by far the best for us. We ate there four times. One time was Hibachi, which you have to sign up for at 6 pm and they tell you when to come back. IT WAS AMAZING!! Liquor: They kept it coming and were not stingy at all! Unless you are expecting a full cup of liquor and a splash of juice you will not be disappointed. They do not have Corona which I thought was strange. However they do Have Dos XX and that was just as good. My ONLY small complaints: The dress code for dinner was a pain. Males have to have closed toes shoes to eat at the French place. We got kicked out. Every other place men must have a collared shirt for dinner. Polos are fine! Also sometimes it seemed like stuff closed a little earlier then they said it would. About 1/2 an hour. For example: Pool bars were suppose to close at 6 but they really started closing at 5:30. The beach is wonderful, but there is not bathroom real close to it and only one bar. They do have waiters on the beach but sometimes it goes slow. We spent most of our time at the pool instead. The beach in front of the Emerald Rooms was very rocky, which I didn't expect. WE couldn't walk out of our room and go swimming.
