Tout est parfait et il y a des activités le jour comme le soir, on ne s'ennuie jamais au Valentin! Parmis les employés qui nous ont aidé à planifier et ce soit avant et tout au long de notre voyage je nomme M. Josélo, M. Edgar, ils ont été d'un service incroyable, la 'barwomen' Sonia toujours aussi serviable et à l'affut de nos moindre désirs! Nous nous sommes lié d'amitié depuis plusieurs années à M. Alfredo, en charge de la section des porte-bagagistes très gentil et qui donne un service hors pair! Aussi notre concierge Oscar qui donne un excellent service! Un grand merci à tout ce beau monde! Et la bellew Yolenda qui nous a réservé une salle personnel au restaurant italien pour célébrer notre anniversaire de mariage!! Aussi, Dora qui offre toujours ses services à la grande piscine.

    Best. Time. Ever.

    What can I say? Valentin Imperial Riviera Maya was the absolute best resort I've stayed at...ever. The goal of our trip was relaxation, and we got it! We looked at so many resorts online in the Cancun / Riviera Maya area, but decided on the Valentin based on the reviews. There were three of us traveling together, one couple and a friend. We got two rooms in the Golden Suites, along the privilege package, which gave us a concierge, lobster every night at any restaurant, champagne, and the ability to reserve a Bali bed at the beach and pool for the entire visit, which was so very convenient and nice. The rooms were immaculate, with bottles of liquor, water, beer, soda, and some juices. The room we had was recenatly remodeled, and was so nice. We went mid-may, so it was very humid, so we did have to crank down the AC for a bit after we opened the door, but they can't control Mother Nature, right? The grounds were BEAUTIFUL, trees, flowers, iguanas, coatimundi, and more. The resort property is GIANT, and very secure, which was nice. You knew everyone on the property belonged there. The pools were clean, big, and beautiful, but you didn't feel like people were on top of you which was a blessing of the size. Sunday's they have a foam party in the pool...I'm not the type who would enjoy that normally, just given the stereotyping of those parties. NOPE! It was so fun, so so fun, and not at all what I had stereotyped. Food was to die for. They close a restaurant per evening, and you see which one in the daily journal that's sent out. Each restaurant was delicious, but my favorites were the French and Indonesian. I had never had either, and they were AMAZING. I mean, AMAZING. The Italian was a close second to the other two. We didn't try the Japanese, but everything else was fantastic too. Ok, now on to the staff. Emiliano was part of the go team, and he was so friendly. He remembered our names from the first time he spoke to us, until the end of our stay. Then there was Dora, so friendly, she too remembered our names from the first conversation, but oh there's more. We were chatting with her, and some guests who had just arrived but had been there previously walked up and she remembered their names, careers, and the wife ran up to Dora and hugged her. I know they all have jobs to do, but I truly feel this is above and beyond. They really care what you think and how you feel about your stay. I know other places say that, but it's not always this obvious. We also ran into some of the same folks throughout our stay. The martini bar was fantastic, and the people there were as fantastic if not more. We particularly saw Liliana and Amanda most often there, and they were so sweet and helpful. Bartenders around the property that were exceptional were Diego, Johnny, and Angel. Try one of Diegos Chile Margaritas, he served by the lobby, and although all were good, his were unforgettable! You must. Waiters that stood out are Raul, Armando and Marco, they were so friendly, professional, and all around helpful. These are the people who fully stood out, but I can't say a bad thing about anyone there, they were all so helpful and kind. Last thing to note, room service food was surprisingly delish!! So take advantage of that. We will definitely be regulars going forward.

    First Timers at The Valentin

    The resort is beautiful! Food and drinks are great, but most importantly, the staff are incredible. Every member of the staff was genuinely kind and works so hard to make sure all guests are enjoying themselves. Amado is amazing and was our favorite server at the pool, along with Antonio. Jessica and Emiliano with the Go Team were so fun, and of course, there's Dora! Dora took the time to chat with us about our visit and get to know us a bit. She was so nice! The rooms were clean and well kept, the restaurants and amenities were great, but it's the staff that keep people going back again and again. They're the best!

    2nd visit was wonderdeful! Can't wait to go back again.

    This resort is simply beautiful! From the tropical feel to the music playing as you walk the grounds, to the breathtaking views and the wildlife - everything is simply gorgeous! To top it all off you have the most amazing staff that go above and beyond to make sure that you feel welcome, pampered, and special. There truly is something here for everyone. You can enjoy the peace and quiet by the ocean or swim up rooms or be involved in all the activities at the main pool. The "Go Team" at the pool is great at getting everyone involved with things to do throughout the day. There are 7 different restaurants to try with varied menus. You will want to try each and every one of them. Best of all, you can try many different food items that you have never had before. If you don't care for it you can simply order something else. Be adventurous! This resort has become our home away from home in May. We can't wait to return to see our Valentin family and plan on bringing other people with us next time.
