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.

We decided to go to an all-inclusive adults only resort. No regrets. No small children (we had 4 so not as if we do not like children), no noise, no crazy partying, sophisticated food, music and entertainment. The restaurants are refined, the service impeccable, and the decor is beyond perfect. This truly is a 5star resort. We really had no complaints, from the beautifully appointed rooms, to the lovely pools and gardens, the activities during the day - which are not invasive, but left entirely up to you - we enjoyed it all. The cooking classes were enjoyable, would have preferred even more hands on, though. The beaches were quiet, with personnel offering you delicious drinks throughout the day. Never enjoyed a resort as much as this one. The beaches are beautiful but the water very wavy and they are perhaps not as walkable as the ones in the Dominican Republic or Barbados. Despite that we would return in a heartbeat. We have travelled to some very beautiful and exclusive locations, but we do not hesitate to recommend the Valentin Imperial to anyone. Will definitely go back.

We went to the Valentin Imperial Maya in February 2016 with 6 others to celebrate the guys 50th Birthday! It was a wonderful trip! The accommodations were wonderful (only thing to note is there is absolutely no privacy in the bathrooms). We had a suite that had the whirlpool tub in the middle, so if you went to the shower, toilet, it was open to the next room. Even though we've been married for 24 years, a little privacy would of been nice. This appears to be common in many of the resorts, so from what I understand this is quite common. This also would wake up the other one if you turned the light on in the bathroom before the other was awake. Just something to be aware of , and I would consider asking for room options to see if this was the same across the board. The pool was great! Even though you see comments that chairs were reserved, we did see the staff remove towels, personal belongings if guests had not come back to the area over an extended period of time. I was happy to see that. There were 8 of us travelling together and we never had any issues. Food - it was outstanding! We ate at most of the a la carte restaurants, and they were 5 star! The buffets were excellent! Fresh grilled fish/seafood every single day. The desserts were amazing too! Usually I do not have desserts from the buffets but they were absolutely delish! Water Bottles - I loved the fact that they were constantly handing out water bottles around the pool. Great service The beach was beautiful, but unfortunately the week were were there it was rough and the flags were out so we were unable to take benefit of it. Entertainment - we did not get to many of the shows at night as we were still eating, but the ones we did go to were top notch. The live band each night in the courtyard was my favourite part of the evening! This is the first resort where they seemed to have many guests up dancing each night! Prices at the resort stores were not unreasonable and I did most of my shopping in the stores there compared to in town We are already talking about our return trip to the resort and I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone.

This was our second time staying at Valentin but a few things were different. We were first there 6 ½ years ago and stayed in an Emerald Suite (which was phenomenal!) This time we wanted to stay a little closer to the activity and upgraded from a Deluxe to a Silver Suite. (FYI, the bed was way too hard and even for my husband, who likes a firmer mattress. I guess it’s a matter of preference but it was not that way in the Emerald room.) For any of you who have stayed here before and wish to go back, but it has been a couple years, there are some changes to be aware of and not all of them are good ones. For one thing, we found out that they are under new management (which was the reason given to us when we asked why, in the past, men only had to wear long pants in the French restaurant and now, they pretty much require it in ALL the restaurants.) I read the website before traveling and most of the restaurants indicated Bermuda shorts for the men. Now, I do know what a Bermuda short is but, I guess we misinterpreted that to mean that they could wear nice shorts. Wrong! Therefore, our guys were completely unprepared and only brought one pair of long pants. They were not happy campers about that either. I heard several others throughout the resort saying the same thing. Not until we got into the room and read their book did it describes that long pants are required for all the restaurants except the Mexican one. However, when we went to the Mexican restaurant, we were turned away because the guys had nice shorts on. Strange because I had nice shorts on as a woman and I was not turned away. Anyway, be prepared and pack appropriately folks. You can only wear nice shorts for dinner in the restaurant on the beach. We preferred it the way it was before years ago so, for us this was a bit of a disappointment. It would be nice if the resort also updated their website to match their book in the room. The other disappointment this time vs. our first visit was the quality of the food. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a picky eater by any standard. However, it was just not the same as our first visit. And, we both got Montezuma’s revenge. I have traveled a lot to Mexico (and just last June too) and never experienced this before so I can only wonder – was it the quality of the food? The steak and seafood restaurant on the beach was the best though, in our opinion. Again, it’s probably a matter of personal taste. The good: the resort grounds are amazing; Carlos, our bar waiter around the main pool is awesome; Bryan the Mayan from the entertainment team is a super sweet nice young man; the bartender at Don Miguel’s makes the most incredible drinks at night. The not so good (besides what I mention above): figuring out the AC and lights in the Silver room is challenging; the layout of the Silver room with that darn tub in the middle and those doors to the bathroom area with those protruding handles is a pain! All in all, we had a great week but the first time there was better.

I will only go an adults only resort after this! The bartenders were great, room service was impeccable, and the food at all the restaurants was amazing! The accessibility to the ocean/beach and all the attractions/entertainment throughout the resort is perfect. I can't wait to go back!

We have been to several all-inclusives operated by major chains and have come away disappointed each time, vowing never to do that again. The Valentin Maya has changed that. Simply put, this resort excels in all aspects: room, service, staff, food, beach and grounds and value. It is obvious that an incredible amount of planning went into the design and construction of the resort as a whole. Your are not staying at a major hotel, plunked on a beach but at a tropical, almost jungle-like plantation. Buildings are spread across 150 hectares with incredible gardens in between providing space and privacy. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. They offer a diverse group of restaurants. We tried all of them and the food at each one was top-notch. We bought the Privilege package and thought it worth the money. Several nights other guests without it were told the wait at the restaurant would be over an hour. We were then seated immediately at a preferred table. One caution: while you do have an opportunity to get a reserved cabana at the pool or beach, better check with the Privilege cabana guy at your preferred location as soon as you arrive. Don't trust what they tell you about your assigned location at the Preferred Lounge at check-in.
