For couples who love a large resort with lots of options for socializing and relaxing, the Valentin Imperial Maya is right up your alley. The all-inclusive oceanfront resort has one of Mexico’s largest swimming pools which means plenty of space for schmoozing or zoning out.
The style here is a blend of Spanish influences mixed with tropical details. Two and three story whitewashed buildings with Moorish arches and palapa roofing are spread out over the expansive property with paved walking paths connecting to the main building. All rooms at this adults-only getaway are suites with high-end finishes including marble floors, large Jacuzzi tubs and private outdoor space.
Upgrade to a swim-up suite and leave the cover-up behind. It’s just a few steps from your room into the pool. If you like to let loose with a few drinks on your vacation, there are 11 different bars to choose from including two swim-up poolside ones and a cigar bar.
If the daytime tippling is not your scene, there are two designated quiet areas or just drift along in the lazy river and let the revelry fade into the distance.
Dining options are limited once you’re on the beach or in the pool as chair side service can be spotty but indoors there’s a choice of ten different types of fare including Italian, Japanese and seafood. Past guests on Tripadvisor.com praise the food and that no reservations are required but wish there were more options to eat without leaving their chaises.
If you’ve tired of the pool scene altogether, the hotel’s half mile private beach, known as Secrets Beach is a great spot for strolling, snorkelling or enjoying a private couples massage.
