Valentin Imperial Maya in Playa del Secreto, Mexico

If your tropical dreams involve having a tiki drink in hand at all times, Valentin Imperial Maya does not disappoint. Guests can while away the days seaside on the wide, half-mile-long Playa del Secreto or float down a meandering pool almost that long – in peace, since the resort is adults-only. Roomy suites outfitted in creamy neutrals have marble floors and a hydrotherapy tub for two. At night, a choice of eight restaurants and 11 bars keep options interesting.

Relax on your balcony with a frittata and orange juice delivered to your room. Take a walk among the canals, lagoons and manicured gardens of the property, then stroll to the beach and snorkel among colorful tropical fish. Return to the pool and don't leave for the day – the margaritas are fresh, and they're free-flowing. Watch the teppanyaki spectacle at Ginger, where entrées are prepared with flaming flourishes before your eyes.

This is an adults only holiday and it is the best ever resort we have ever had the pleasure to experience, nothing was too much trouble, what ever you asked for, the staff tried their best to supply, the restaurants (there are many to choose from) were wonderful, our favourite was the French and we went there quite a few times. I am not a fish person but on this holiday because the meals were so beautiful I mainly had fish. The lobster, sword fish and sea bass were so amazing. Buffett breakfast had so much to choose from, nothing left out. Buffett lunch superb with help your self ice cream trolley that had the most wonderful flavours of ice cream. be prepared to come home as big as a house because the food is exceptional where ever you chose to eat. The pools were kept immaculate, there are 2, the big pool with 2 swim up bars where all the action is, starts off with the exercise, all different ones done by the entertainments team, join in or watch your choice, lay on the sun beds and be waited on with cocktail of the day and little eating experiences served to you, it is the 1st place I have ever been where they have rubber Lillo's enough for every body's needs, nice touch. The 2nd pool, the Golden pool / lazy river was quite and relaxing with its own little bar and eatery, again with staff waiting on you. Iguanas share this area with you and are fascinating, even had one jump on the sun bed with me one day. The beach was beautiful, staff to wait on you from the beach bar, not a snorkelling place unfortunately because the sea too wavy, no coral, lots of fish that follow you though. Sun beds every where, enough for every one, towels aplenty no need for cards to get them either. Lots of cocktails, all branded drinks, nothing missed out, may have got a bit squiffy at times. They even have a bed turn down service which was a lovely touch and they leave you mints and a news sheet of the agenda for the following day with the added personal touch of names of returning guests, birthdays, anniversary's, and weddings. I could go on with the everything included in this holiday but would take me forever. This has been the best holiday we have ever had and we will be comparing where ever we go in the future against this resort.

A Five Star Resort. Food and accommodations were first rate. The food was excellent at all of the restaurants. Especially the Frend and the Japanese Grill. Breakfast buffet was Rey good. Looking forward to returning.

My husband and I just returned yesterday from 7 nights at the Valentin. Upon arrival, we were ushered into the lobby...everyone was getting champagne so I asked for some too! Finally a man came and said our room was ready and handed us our room keys and told us where to go to wait for our shuttle. He never tried to sell us an upgrade or a bed by the pool or privilege package or anything. I was surprised at this but honestly happy. We also never had our own personal concierge which everyone seems to have been assigned. We stayed in building 3, which was very quiet. It is also right across from LeMarche (the buffet--we went every morning for breakfast). Building 4 I think would have been ideal because it is very close to the pool. The room was clean and very spacious. Our toilet ran constantly however! Fridge is stocked with sodas, water, beer and juice. Room is attended to in the am and again at turn-down service. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash and lotion are provided. There is also a small blow dryer. The grounds are beautiful but it took me a good 4 days before I felt comfortable walking around myself b/c I kept getting lost. So many trees and greenery everywhere that it looks the same everywhere you go. Very confusing. The pool is beautiful! However, if you want to sit in the shade, which I highly recommend...then you need to get up about 6am and go reserve your spot! One day my husband went out about 5:15!!! Do not underestimate the sun there...after a few hours in the pool you will need the shade. You will want to invest in a insulated glass to keep your drinks in as they get warm very fast in the bar glasses. The have rafts to use but not nearly enough. I saw some people had brought their own blow up rafts which I thought was a great idea!!! What we loved is that they cook food every day by the pool for lunch so you do not have to go to a restaurant to eat. It varies every day--tacos, burgers, hotdogs, etc. We enjoyed that. The food is good, but I have had better at other resorts. We did not go hungry I assure you. For breakfast we ate at Mar & Tierra or LeMarche. Both are buffets--the only difference i found is that Mar & Tierra does not serve oatmeal. We ate dinner at the Mexican buffet show, the Broadway buffet show, and the Italian and Mexican Restaurants. We loved Mar & Tierra on the beach. The steaks were fabulous as well as the fish. This was the food that was the most "normal" if you will. Plus my husband could wear shorts there! As we are Pittsburgh Penguin fans, we were there on two of the Eastern Conference Finals game nights. We had gathered a huge crowd of Pittsburgh fans to watch the games in the sports bar. They only have popcorn in the Sports Bar and we all needed to eat dinner. The games were at 7:00 and the restaurants open at 6 and dinners take a good 2 hours. Not kidding. Service is slow which is fine but not on a game night!! We assumed we could order room service and have it delivered to the sports bar--they said NO. My husband and some other guys went to the manager in the lobby thinking surely they would make an exception as we were having such a large crowd but he said absolutely not. we were not permitted to take any food in there. Very disappointing Valentin!!!! We had to sit in our room for two nights and eat dinner then go watch the game. I can tell you that on a previous trip to Secrets Maroma--they are very accommodating to sports fans on major events. All in all, we really enjoyed our stay and made some great friends. Would we return? No. But I would recommend someone going there. There's just too many other resorts to explore and the food just wasn't that great to me. It was good but that's it. Service was wonderful--all staff were so kind to us. Please tip them!!!!!! Oh wifi was spotty but it worked!!!

It's our 2nd time at the VIM. We visited 2years ago for 7 nights and really enjoyed it so came back this year for 10 nights. We booked last October as a party of 4 (2couples) and was very disappointed at the check in when we were allocated rooms in different blocks - 2 & 3. We had requested block 5 when booking as we'd had rooms there before and liked it location. This request seemed to have been ignored despite booking well in advance. When we asked for rooms in the same block and despite some reluctance one was found in block 3 but this was I think a room converted for disabled users so did not have a bath. As no others were available we accepted being in separate blocks which was not ideal. Apart from this the hotel was again up to our expectations. The grounds are wonderful very well kept and full of wildlife. The rooms were very well equipped and kept spotless during our stay. I cannot fault the housekeeping staff at all. The food in The restaurant near the beach was great for breakfast and lunch -really good choice. This restaurant was also one of our favourites at night too but the best was the Italian closely followed by the French. We did not really like the Mexican one as the food to me lacked flavour and spice but perhaps we chose wrong. The beach was nice but as the wind was up the sea was quit rough and seaweed a bit of an issue for my friend who likes swimming in the sea. We found the smaller quiet pool by block 6 really nice. The entertainment at night was good -particularly liked the Imperial Band. All in all a really good hotel -wish however they'd got the room allocation right but it did not really spoil our holiday.

We had a lovely week here and I already want to go back. The main pool is big and lively but there are other options too like the quieter lazy river and more secluded parts of the beach. Food is great with lots of different options. My favs: crepes at le marche for breakfast made by Victor, tequila shrimp at hacienda, squid in the french place, tempura and hibachi at ginger, risotto at the Italian. Fav drinks: strawberry mojito, mango margarita and sakarinas at ginger. I would highly recommend this resort. If you are looking for quieter options go exploring and don't stick to the main pool. The staff are lovely. Luis, isidoro and Roger at le marche, Isaac at the hibachi table, Imelda at the pool, hilario at the Italian, the house keeping staff and the go entertainment team especially Benito and Ryan.. special mention to Benny for his fun Spanish lesson. Buenos naches 😂
