    5th Visit… this time with the whole family!

    We have been to VIM 5x in 6 years as a couple. We went in April 2023 and this visit over Thanksgiving. First time here as a group, not as a couple, and it was an awesome experience for everyone! We brought family from age 25-63. We WILL be back! People asked us why we repeat at VIM, and theres too many reasons (the place has something for everyone). But really at this point, it’s the people at VIM that are what makes it special. Nallely (at Mar y Tierra), big heart, big smile, an absolutely wonderful person. We made a point to ask for her as our sever after previous trips and it is now catching up with a friend. She is such a special part of VIM. Give her a raise! She made our meal such an experience! Her husband Jose is also wonderful! I have some serious medical concerns with food and Nailley and all the staff are so attentive. At the Italian restaurant the manager even came over to make sure staff understood what I needed, she was so helpful! Impressed. Diego and David and Davi at the swim up bars were so fun to goof around with (theyre MACHO! 😉 ) but when it was quieter, just talking life with them was great too. They’re great people and you can tell they have fun at their job. Awesome service. Isaac at la marche recognized us from our honeymoon in 2017 (the guy remembered the year and month we met him without us telling him, he sees how many thousands of people a year? Still the same friendly, caring person. Lorenzo, as sexy as ever and still the warm, joking presence at the pool. Dora, who doesn’t love her? We had a group this time and she made everyone feel like they belonged here. Dora is like a best friend to everyone and is so wonderful! Super impressed and thankful bringing a group was a great experience. Areas for improvement: - This trip, and our trip in April 2023, both times making a merchandise purchase at Cafe Sisal was so difficult and time consuming. We held up the line with people out the door, took so long to complete. I felt bad the staff had to do such a complicated process. Hope this improves! - Hate the phone menus. It’s such a pain and is tacky to be sitting at a beautiful restaurant with phones out. - Foam party being canceled because it rained earlier in the day :( booo

    Another trip

    Another great trip to the Valentin Resort. A little humid in November but hardly any bugs. The entire staff was as always extremely friendly and helpful. Dora was her usual amicable self. Tacos at the taco truck were todo chingon ! The beach was windy but still great. We always have a great time when we come here.

    A wonderfully peaceful experience

    I had a lovely time at the Valentin. I came to relax, and I achieved it. The lush surroundings lent such a peaceful atmosphere. The beach and ocean were beautiful. There were three excellent pool options varying from lively to quiet. The activities team at the main pool were so engaging and fun. The room provided luxury and excellent value for the price. Most of the restaurants were good. I attended some of the entertainment, but it mostly was not the kind I prefer. The outdoor nightlife provided a fun touch. I even managed to use some of the gym facilities, which were small but effective. I would certainly consider returning in future.One employee in particular, Dora, was absolutely delightful. I looked forward to running into her; she was the cherry on top.
