A note from Valentin Imperial Riviera Maya
Updated 02/08/21 Safety precautions are provided by the property and are not checked by Tripadvisor for accuracy.



Hotel Valentin Imperial Maya is the new definition of paradise. Our 5 star Adults-Only (18+) All-Inclusive Resort is located a short 25 minutes from Cancun International Airport in the Riviera Maya.

Set amid lavish gardens on a half-mile-long stretch of white sand beach named Playa Del Secreto (The Secret Beach), this magnificent award-winning resort boasts one of the largest swimming pools in Mexico. The location is ideal as one can easily reach Cancun and the world famous Mayan archaeological sites such as Tulum, Coba, and Chichen Itza, yet be removed enough to enjoy the casually elegant ambience of Valentin Imperial Maya.

Escape into a world where your every wish is our command. Come indulge yourself....You deserve it!

Valentin Imperial Maya Hotel & Spa is committed to preserve the environment by reducing the consumption of natural resources, promoting among our guests and staff, protection and respect for the environment through good environmental practices.

Hotel's Favorite
This resort is the absolute BEST! Their staff has a culture all of its own and treats everyone like royalty. The always over exceed expectations and we never wanted to leave. We have been to Hawaii and the Bahamas and Mexico was our favorite. There is no need to stay anywhere else. We made friends with some of the visitors and the STAFF. MARCOS was our favorite! We are now friends on Facebook. We plan to return in January! MOST AMAZING VACATION TO DATE!

Our 6th trip did not disappoint, as always. From food to drinks to amenities, and most of all the staff. The staff makes you feel like family and keeps us coming back. You will not find a better value at this level. A special salute to Dora Ingles, Angel Azcorra, restaurant manager, Cesar, concierge building 5, and hostess at Le Marche, whom we did not get her name. This resort is a must visit! Hasta que nos encontremos de nuevo!

This was my first time at this resort and I can say that I’ve never enjoyed interacting with staff this much! Everyone that we’ve been in contact with has been wonderful and they remember you from day to day. Diego at the sports bar is top notch! His drinks were the best, and he is a funny guy. He’s very helpful and took care of our large (20 guests) drink orders in a very timely fashion. Amanda at the cigar bar was extremely nice and fun to talk with. Even when the cigar lounge was full, Amanda took care of everyone with a smile on her face. The Go team is amazing and they keep the party going! Jesus is a natural host and comedian and was very informative during the guacamole presentation. Isaac was always a joy to see every day at the pool and would remember my family and I and spend time informing us of the day’s activities. Finally, Lorenzo and Alejandra with the Go Team are very fun as well and I don’t think the resort would be the same without this wonderful staff. Thank you everyone for a wonderful vacation!

In this crazy world we live in today, what a wonderful experience to arrive back at the Valentin and hear those words "Welcome Home". We have been to this resort countless times since 2008 and this time brought friends for their first visit, they were amazed at the resort. As usual the CoVid precautions are in place, masks as you enter restaurants and public places, hand sanitizer available everywhere, and the rooms completely sanitized upon arrival. We felt safer than we do when going out at home. They have added a coffee shop, Sisal that is a fantastic addition. It is open from 7 AM until 1 AM and has a great menu of coffees and teas that are made to order, non-coffee drinks, sandwiches and desserts. The decor is beautiful. The food in every restaurant remained just as consistently delicious with beautiful presentations as it has always been. The property is maintained meticulously, everywhere could be used as photos for travel magazines. It has been fun watching the growth of the greenery and trees over the years. It is so lush and beautiful. Special thanks to Noemi and Executive Chef Rosales, Gerardo "Jerry" the transport driver/bellman, Grissel serving drinks, Vianny who made our dinner at Ginger a very special experience, Isidro at Mar & Tierra who has remembered our drink choice for years, Jared and Francisco having our palapa made up every morning when we got to the pool, David, Yolanda, and last but not least Joselo. This man ensures we are always well taken care of. If you are looking at this resort as a possible choice, just book it. It does not disappoint! We will be back in February 2022.
