Great adult resort...but very BIG

Posted Apr 17, 2014
Great resort. Friendliest staff I have ever encountered. Resort in huge nice walk from room to beach to pool. Nice looking beach but very rocky. Not a great beach to go swimming. Restaurants are top notch. Overall I highly recommend.

Beautiful Hotel

Posted Apr 13, 2014
My boyfriend and I just returned from the Valentin Imperial Maya. This hotel was my favorite hotel that I have stayed in in Riveria Maya. Loved all the trees and flowers surrounding the hotel. Food was great, the scuba staff (Enrique) was awesome and made my first time scuba diving very comfortable. Such a fun and romantic getaway. Can't wait to go back!

Great Resort on the Beach

Posted Apr 5, 2014
Pros: I loved the natural aspect of the property, with a lot of areas of natural vegetation for wildlife. Restaurants were surprisingly delicious.
Cons: The towels were old, stiff and over washed, they need replacing. Gym is also on the small side.
Location: Located 20 minutes from downtown Playa, great for day tripping.
My husband and I arrived in the morning and the staff accommodated us by holding our luggage and suggested we use the changing rooms to start using the resort. We didn't get a second story room as requested but nevertheless the room was spacious and clean. Spacious, laid out resort on the beach (loved that you had to take walks to get around, which hopefully combatted some of the calories consumed). The large pool has plenty of room for all, lots of chairs, plenty of shade. Quality of food was vast and delicious. Each themed restaurant was great-not only did the cuisine taste authentic, but they had plenty of menu choices. Alcohol was top shelf and drinks were quickly made. Staff were genuinely nice and prompt with service.

Best Resort in Riviera Maya

Posted Apr 3, 2014
Pros: Food is outstanding and the staff will go out of their way to accommodate your every need. A great place to stay.
Cons: No....
Great pool and the beach area is incredible. You can walk in either direction and not be bothered by anyone. Biggest pool I have ever been in. There is also a quiet pool too. On the other side of the buildings.

Beautiful Facility

Posted Mar 30, 2014
Pros: Early check in, food, location, beach/pool, entertainment.
Cons: Drink menu for martini bar, allow other guests to use Privilege Club beach/pool beds/palypas if unoccupied.
Location: Close to Cancun and airport as well as Playa Del Carmen. Tons of things to do in the Cancun/Riviera Maya area if you wish to leave the resort.
Valentin Imperial Maya is conveniently located within 20 minutes of the Cancun Airport. The facility is well kept with beautiful grounds/gardens. The property is laid out very well - easy to find your way around and close enough to everything to walk. Beach/swimming area is wonderful. Pool is huge with two swim up bars and they have it separated by the "quiet side" and the "activity side". Food was wonderful from the breakfast/lunch buffets to the specialty restaurants for dinner. Entertainment was probably some of the best that we have seen and ranged from a piano player in one of the bar areas to live bands in the plaza. Would recommend if you are looking for an upscale get away!!

Amazing Resort

Posted Mar 29, 2014
Everything about this resort was amazing, the staff were amazing, room service and cleanliness was incredible. The pool and beach couldn't have been better. From the moment you get there you are treated like royalty. Staff never lingered waiting for a tip (although we tipped everyone $1-2). Anything you need they do whatever they can to accommodate. This really is more of a couples resort also so if you are single and on the prowl this probably isn't the place for you. People complained about having to walk too much. Yeah the place is spread out but the walks are great, peaceful, see all the weird animals, find some coconuts to smash and eat, i dunno - you're on vacation have some fun. As long as you don't require a cane or a walker to get around, it shouldn't be an issue. I thought the food was great, and it was everywhere, all the time, i think i ate 5 meals a day. This place just rocks, i'll be going back.
