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.

It’s hard to pick a vacation using reviews, but if this place had any bad ones, they can’t be satisfied. They worked hard on appearance and even harder if something was wrong. Too many friendly staff to name them all. Shows were fun, remember they...More

Just got back from our 3rd trip to the Valentin Imperial Riviera Maya. The resort is beautiful, the food is delicious, and the drinks are top shelf, but what makes this resort exceptional is the STAFF. They go above and beyond in everything they do....More

I assumed this is where you were heading with your last question. A couple of years ago, a girl drowned at a resort (not this one). It is repeatedly rehashed on the forums. Brother and sister found in the pool, after dark and it was closed. Parents allege "tainted alcohol", but news reports state her BAC was .25 and her brothers were .26. Sorry, that's not tainted, that over consumption, being absolutely lit. More than 4times the legal limit here in the US.
They did a some inspections and found some "illicit" alcohol, not tainted at 4 locations I believe, these included bars in town, not just the resort. This is generally alcohol that does not have the tax stamps. Not tainted. Think Moonshine and bootleggers for comparison.
My personal opinion is that if there was "tainted" alcohol, every single person that had a drink from that bottle would be affected. Not just these two very young adults, she was 20 and he was 22. It's possible someone could put something in you drink if you were not paying attention to it, but this could easily be another guest.
If you are not used to drinking, the effects can hit you hard. If you are tired, are dehydrated, haven't eaten, these will all play a factor as well. I have not read a single comment that mentions any problems at the VIM with quality of alcohol. Drinking too much is a different story. And I've had my fair share of their bottled supply.
Use caution just as you do at home, if you do at home. Don't leave drinks unattended. Don't put yourself in a blackout drunk. Even if you have someone to get you back to your room, you're going to pay tomorrow and why be so drunk you forget your wonderful vacation days. Alcohol is freepoured, not measured, so drinks can be potent. Lot's of people do shots. You can be over the limit before you even realize it.
