Valentin Imperial Maya Brides?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I'm recently engaged and planning our wedding for June 2013 at the Valentin. We vacationed there last July with three other couples and loved the resort! Does anyone have any advice for reception locations? We are expecting 20-30 people. Thanks!

Hey girls! I am newly engaged girl trying to plan a destination wedding for June 2013. We want to do adults-only and were originally really interested in Secrets but then I came across this resort and it seems equally as nice and much more reasonably priced. Can anyone confirm?  Also, does anyone know if this resort includes any water activities, evening entertainment, etc? I didn't really see anything on the website.  Thanks!! I am still between this and Secrets Silversands or Secrets Capri.  Such a touch decision. I have been in touch with Ana and she did inform me the date I requested is available..If I go with this resort, I plan to do the Love package.

Hi Safety, The resort is beautiful and some water activities are included. We were there last July and were able to snorkel. Kayaks were available and you could book more water activities (parasailing, jet skiing, fishing, etc) on the beach. The swimming beach was the best I've been to, very fine sand, no rocks and clear water. There was even a school of angel fish that we fed one morning. If you walked the length of the beach, which was very large and private, it became rockier. There was a pier with man made fish houses around it that we snorkeled over which was amazing. The nightly entertainment was decent, they had different shows each night. We really liked the Michael Jackson show and the fire show. Around 10 each night they had a dj and dancing in the main square area by the lobby. The only real drawback to the resort is that the beach closes every night at 6:00 pm during turtle nesting season (may - nov). Also, the pools close at around the same time. The valentin has a Facebook page with more info and reviews. Good luck choosing :)

Hi just wondering how late the music plays each night. Want a fun, night atmosphere and am a little concerned about this being that there is no disco. I viewed some videos and there seems to be a courtyard where people gather but if you have been there then any input would be appreciated. THANKs!

We just got invited to a friends wedding at the Valentin next January!! I am so excited to go after reading some of the posts on this thread! We were married at the El Dorado Royale and they sound like similar resorts in terms of service, food & fun :)
