    Another unforgettable birthday trip with my wife in paradise at the VIM!

    Just back from 10 days in paradise at the VIM! This was a birthday celebration trip for my wife and our fourth time to the Valentin. So many great people who I want to recognize. Antonio at the Tierra & Mar, Angel in Café Sisal, Claudio who was so attentive while we lounged at the 'quiet pool', Alan at Don Miguel for the recommendation to try both types of Chocolate martinis! Thank you Isobel for the awesome bike tour around the resort, and of course the amazing Dora who updated us about what events were happening that day. My only 'thumbs down' was the cancellation of the foam party on Sunday afternoon for no apparent reason. Hundreds of people were ready to enjoy the event when it as announced NO FOAM PARTY TODAY DUE TO WEATHER. What??? A few clouds in the distance and blue sky over the resort and they cancelled the foam party which my wife and I (plus numerous others) were looking forward to all week - BOOOOOOO! The newly renovated sports bar was terrific and the mini beers and Cheesecake shots were the best! Nice to have the popcorn and hotdog stand there too for late night snacking. We tried all the restaurants except for L'Alsace (closed due to renovations) and enjoyed EVERY meal. The Hibachi grill in Ginger was the highlight as the group sang Happy Birthday to my wife. Kudos to chef Alberto for entertaining us while he prepared our most delicious dinner! Will we be back? Absolutely! See you next November for visit #5.

    25th wedding anniversary - Best place ever!

    This was the best resort I have ever been to. 12 other resorts are not even close to how good Valentin Imperial Riviera Maya. Food is great! LaHacienda was my favorite. Breakfast at. LaMarche and Terra is great. The pools were very clean. Lists of fun activities. The resort and grounds were very clean and smelled great! Omar was great for the romantic dinner. Susana gave me the best massage I have ever had in my life. Dora was the best guest experience coordinator. She really made us feel like friends.
