Well that's about it! I hope that these pictures convince you to book here.. the Valentin has top notch reviews on Tripadvisor.com. You can find room pics on their website and my parents have stayed here and they said it was amazing... they found it a little dead and quiet at night, but that was two years ago. Ariadna told me that they now have theme nights (Mexican night, etc) as well as outdoor entertainment in the lobby terrace with fire shows and dancers. If you're really that bored....playa del carmen is 25 mins away!
We are planning on booking here but I have to wait until June to choose a date since I'm not sure which school I'll be working in next year, I have to wait and see...!

I will be writing my review of the VIM this weekend, and I'll post a link to it here as well as several pictures. :-)

1st time posting pictures-I'm hoping this works!
Ariadna sent me these two pictures of the Lobster Pot. We were planning to have our reception at the terrace of the Mexican restaurant, but changed our minds to the Lobster Pot when we found out we wouldn't have more than 15-20 guests.
I haven't been to the Valentin since June, but I think I remember this part of the Lobster Pot being a more private area (it's separate from the main part of the restaurant)-you can see from the pictures that a large reception just wouldn't fit. I've also heard that the food at the Lobster Pot is good, but not the best, but since there are only 3 universal choices for reception dinner menus no matter the reception location, I'm hoping it's the same quality as the other restaurants. When I was there last summer, I had lunch at this restaurant almost every day, and it was great!
The Mexican Terrace looks absolutely lovely, but just wouldn't work with the small group I'm planning on having.
Hoyt-can't wait for your review!!!
