    The lobster pot and steak house are connected and are open air restaurants. If it is raining it can come through the roof (and it did on DH and I). It was not a lot and it has to be raining at an angle to get through.

    I don't think I have a pic but I will look.

      Does anyone know if it is cheaper to book activities in advance (horseback riding, ruins, etc) or through the resort itself? I am assuming that it is better to do it in advance, but perhaps book transportation once you are there.

        thats ok I didnt realize it was open air. most of my guests have canceled for fear of the the "second wave of swine flu" so instead of having a private dinner I was going to do it in a restaurant. can you tell me which are the nicest? the french looked great but i am worried my guests may not like french food.

          On my visit to the Valentin, I ate at the Lobster Pot, the Japanese restaurant, Mexican restaurant and Italian. I looked inside the French restaurant but my fiance and I decided against it because the menu scared us a little. I've heard wonderful reviews of it, but the food just wasn't really for us.

          Out of all of them, I have to say I think that the Mexican restaurant is the nicest. We ate in the lovely little courtyard area outside that has a fountain. The food there was delicious, too. The food at all the restaurants was delicious, but the Mexican was my favorite.

              I stayed there last year and I ate at the french restaurant, and while the food was good, the portions were really small. We ended up ordering room service later that night. The mexican restaurant was our favorite. I heard that the Italian place and the Indonesian were very good.

                Does anyone know on average how much their guests will or have paid for their stay at the VIM?

                  Well, I have to say that DH and I LOVED the French restaurant. At first glance the menu may seem scary but I had french onion soup, a steak, and then something delicious for dessert. The french restaurant is beautiful.

                  We also loved the Japanese restaurant, if you are having a small group one of the grills would be awesome. If the group is a bit bigger, they have tables too.

                  The indo restaurant and Italian were great too!

                  The Mexican restaurant was nice but was not our favorite.

                  If they will let you wait to decide I would do that. Get there, look at the menus, see what is open on which nights, check out the areas and then decide. They may have a themed buffet on your wedding night and that could be fun too. They could give you a section for your group.

                  **Just remember if you get your meal and the portions are small...order more. If you get your food and you don't like it order something else. If you eat your dinner and get hungry later, order room service!

                    Hi everyone!

                    I am not getting married at the Valentin, but I am having my honeymoon there and I wanted to do my TTD there. Have any of you past brides done them there? My resort where we are having our wedding enacted this "no outside photographers" policy so we cannot do it there. I am wondering if there are any secluded beach area's...

                      Hi Jayla,

                      My guests are staying from November 19th-November 23rd (4 nights). For round trip airfare as well as the stay it was about $1400-$1600 for the guests. This is based on 2 people sharing a room. It ends up being about $700-$800 per person. Keep in mind it is MUCH cheaper to have people share rooms rather than having people travel single. Upon rigorous searches, we found that it was actually cheapest for us to book directly through the Valentin site vs. Expedia, Travelocity, Priceline, Beachdestinations.com, and cheapcarribean.com.

                      Also, we had a flight cancel on us and the booking place was very courteous and switched us to a better flight with no hassle.
