“We had our wedding at the Valentin in December 2021 and had the best time!!! Having been to other adult all-inclusive resorts in the area, the Valentin is by far the nicest in terms of rooms, service, food & liquor quality, and all in experience! All of our friends raved about the resort too! The food at the restaurants were all very good, which is rare to say at an all-inclusive. The liquor was premium as well. We really enjoyed the courtyard where they had live music and a DJ at night!” – A.L.

Bride and groom Live Aqua Mexico

“17 of us came to Valentin for my wedding – 22 year old- 55 years old, and all of us really enjoyed it. The rooms are clean, coffee shop is great , churro truck at night, food truck by the pool and live bands at night! The wildlife is an addition to this paradise.” – Marcelle2022
