    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, 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, 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!

    Best Honeymoon Ever!

    My wife and I honeymooned at VIM and could not have been more pleased with our stay! We had done vast research regarding all inclusive resorts and decided on VIM based on the thousands of great reviews. We stayed 5 nights at the Golden Swim Up Suite and LOVED our decision to stay in those suites. We decided on the swim up because of the two pool chairs on our porch and easy access into the golden pool (the much more chill and calm of the two pools) but we loved it because we wanted a laid back trip and to have bar and food service available right outside our door. We were spoiled by our server Antonio and he took good care of us every day we were there. The food was incredible and we especially loved the Indonesian restaurant where the spring rolls were to DIE for as well as the Pad Thai which was spicy but so so good! The drinks were incredible too as well as the live shows! The magic show was awesome and we loved the circus act too! The best part is the ability to have cart drivers come get you and bring you wherever you need to go which was great! Overall, my wife and I had a pretty incredible experience at the VIM and will definitely be coming back in the future! Also, if you are lucky enough to meet Dora you won’t regret talking to her!
