Decembers average is 82 degrees January is the coldest month on average. Mid December starts high season so book early! It's warm and humid but that's ok just hang by the pool. There was only 1 day where we had some rain. It was most days It was warm so we didint mind the rain, and it only lasted an hour or so. It's really warm. The pool was way colder! We were there the week before Christmas.
The temps were around 80 -- quite pleasant -- but it was a bit breezy and there were quite a lot of clouds. Don't know if this is normal for this time of year, but if we go back, we're thinking of going in April or May instead. Hot, muggy and a few showers at night. According to www. Typically during the day, and a low of about Some days are breezier than others.
Average high temperatures through October are around 87F with the average low temperature around 74F. The weather great except that a hurricane caused us two days of fun. We went the last week of October. Apparently the week before it rained and was overcast much of the time.
We had one afternoon of total overcast and one night of thunder storms. The rest of the days were warm, blue sky and low 80's. One night cool, so have a jacket. The resort provides umbrellas in the room. Ocean water was warm, warmer than the pool. It is beauitful! September is still warm and sunny with a bit of rain. October is a bit cooler tho still beautiful and not quite so cloudy. Even it rains, there is so much to do, you won't mind.! I went in November and it was nice! October is the end of hurricane season so you run that risk.
How much does it cost for jet ski rental 6 answers. They do not have Jet Ski's. The beach is adjasent to a Nationalionaly protected reef. Is topless sun tannings allowed? The resort's website does specify either way, however, it may just be that they do not advertise it. During my week long stay there was only one topless sunbather that we saw and most people kind of snickered and talked about the woman as they walked past.
If you are looking forward to being topless on the beach I would recommend going elsewhere as you would probably be the only one doing it here. Saw one woman at the pool topless and one on the beach. But they were definitely in the minority. Apparently, both at the pool and the beach.
Sunday brunch - Review of Canvas Restaurant & Market, Orlando, FL - TripAdvisor
The resorts non motorized watersports include Kayaking and snorkeling. I know they have non motorized watersports including kayaks. And I know you can set up fishing charters easily. Yes, although I didn't search it out, I saw several people on the beach going windsurfing and scuba gear was there, too.
I just wanted good service, food and in-resport entertainment, all readily available. Catamarans and kayaking were available. You can rent jetskis and stuff from people who walk up and down the beach. We kayaked a few days, but then it got very windy that they had all non-motorized equipment tied up. Bring a snorkel with you, and even if you don't have one, the water is so clear that the fish are easy to see from above the water. Any nearby fishing excursions 6 answers.
Would like to go deep sea fishing There is a sport fishing company that is located about 30 minutes away from the resort in Puerto Morelos. While we do not work directly with this company, we have had many clients use them and they have been very happy. There may also be some options that are closer to your hotel. If you contact the concierge upon arrival, they will be able to give you the most accurate information and make helpful suggestions for you. Olympus Tours can facilitate. They are located in the hotel for any activity you wish to do.
Yes they can set up everything for you at the resort. Fishing, plus many other really neat tours and excursions can be arranged with the people located near the main pool who also arrange for dive trips. Some of these activities would include taking you and someone else on a "drive-your-own-small-boat" tour through some really cool areas with a guide.
There is a jacuzzi in the Emerald Suite. All other rooms have a jetted tub for two. Yes, in the bathroom of your suite! I had Golden Junior Suite. In the main serpentine pool, there is also a jetted area. I'm sure there is also a jacuzzi elsewhere but I wasn't looking for one. Check with the hotel directly if you want an outdoor one, which I am sure they must have somewhere! From what we saw there was not a public one, but it was really too warm to go in one anyway.
Many of the rooms have them though. Not at the pool and the one in our room burned up the first time we used it. Jacuzzi tubs in room Hot tubs in most, if not all rooms, but none that are outdoors. There are hot tub jacuzzis, but only in the rooms. Golden Junior Suite. From my understanding, many if not most of the rooms VIM have these - best to check for the particular type of room you plan on staying in though. I didn't see one near the pool or in any of the main areas, but many of the rooms have them. We had a huge jacuzzi tiled in our Emerald Suite. What is the minimum age?
Yes, I believe that's correct because the drinking age is It's not a Club Med or Sandals type of "party scene". That's not to say we weren't doing shots of tequila at the swim-up bar 11am guilty as charged, your honor , but it seems to mostly attract couples in their mid 30's - mid 60's. We saw people younger than 18 at the resort with their families, however, it is not a very interesting resort for someone that young as all of the activities are geared towards adults.
No children are permitted under Catholic Mass on Resort? Is there a chapel and Mass offered on the resort? There is a chapel on the resort's property, however, it is usually used for wedding. There is a lovely chapel on the grounds of the Valentin Maya and I believe a sunday mass is available. There's a beautiful little chapel seating for about 50? Open air, very pretty.
Wouldn't call it "non-denominational" as there was a crucifix and a beautiful statue of the Blessed Virgin. You would think Mass might be said there, but I didn't go or see any mention of it. My guess is that the chapel is used mostly for weddings. Worth calling the resort to get a definitive answer. Yes, there is a chapel in the middle of the resort. I believe that it is Catholic. Yes to "Is there a Chapel? Yes there is a chapel and a spot on the beach for wedding ceremonies.
Not sure about mass on Sundays though. They do have a lovely chapel but don't offer Mass, we asked! Transportation into nearest town? Is there a shuttle offering transportation into town and back? Transportation to and from town usually is not included. The resort is located minutes from the vibrant culture of Cancun and the world famous Mayan archaeological sites such as Tulum, Coba, and Chichen Itza. There is a shuttle service that takes you to and from town. We did not utilize it, but were told at check in about the service. I am sure there is a charge, I don't remember what it is, though.
Yes you can set it up with the front desk. Cheaper to do a cab if you share it with 4 people, then you can pick the amount of hours you want to stay. Playa Del Carmen is really nice, you could definately spend a whole day there, lots of shops and restaurants, close to beach. Transportation can be arranged through the hotel, or you can book with a number of tour vendors located just to the right of the bell captains area entrance as you walk in towards the lobby. Olympus Tours was great for us, but others would likely be very good also.

Costs for taxis are considerably more expensive, but also less regimented. Paya del Carmen is the nearest town - about min away I highly recommend going in the early evening - very vibrant scene. The hotel has a shuttle twice a day…. Not sure of the morning times, but the afternoon takes you to Playa Del Carmen at and back to the hotel at Before you just hop in any cab in Playa to go back, make sure you ask how much.
There is no shortage of cabs to take you back to the hotel, so they will deal with you! The only other and the cheapest option is to walk the LONG drive from the hotel out to the main highway and take the Collectivo white window van usually into town. But then, on the way back, you'd get dropped off on the highway and have to hoof it back to the hotel from there. Since this is a adults only hotel is nudity allowed? The Valentin Imperial Maya does not seem to have nudity on the beach.
They may allow people to go topless but this is not a guarantee. I don't think so. I saw no nudity at all. No, but you could probably get away with it at night on the beach. I did not see anyone that was nude. I think there is a spot way down the beach that some of the ladies go to bath topless but honestly we didn't make it down that far. Didn't see any full nudity…..

No bare breasts for women and no nudity at all is permitted at the pool or on the beach. I am not sure but did see a few topless woman. Im not sure if "Complete" nudity is allowed but you will see top-less women on the beach and in and around the pools! We did also catch a man swimming nude one night! Nothing was said and no one really cares. The staff is still treat you the same! Like long pants for men? Yes, several of the restaurants require long pants and collared shirts.
There is a daily newsletter delivered to your room that states dress code for both women and men. Yes there is a dress code for a few of the restaurants. Take a couple of button down shirts and a pair or two of khakis or slacks and you will be fine. I think the french restuarant is the only one the required slacks. The other places you can go into with jeans and a polo. My wife wore casual and sun dresses when we went to dinner.
Yes, long pants for men, no sleeveless shirts, women must wear "elegant sandals" for dinner. I walked to the restaurants barefoot and put my shoes on when I get there. Long walk and raining. Resort evening attire: ladies are expected to wear a dress or blouse with skirt, pants, dress jeans not torn or ragged , capri pants, dress Bermuda shorts with dress shoes or elegant sandals.
Sportswear, tennis shoes or beach sandals are not allowed. Men are expected to wear long pants or dress jeans not torn or ragged , dress or casual shirt with a collar and sleeves, dress sandals with covered toes or loafers. Sportswear, shorts, sleeveless shirts, baseball caps, tennis shoes or sandals are not allowed. Long pants for men and closed toe shoes for men.
They also said no sneakers but didn't refuse the person in our group that only had sneakers. All but 2 restaurants followed the dress code. The restaurants near the beach Lobster Pot for seafood and Tierra for steak do not require long pants. As a matter of fact, when I went to the Japanese restaurant wearing short pants and got on a short waiting list for the next available Hibachi Dinner, the hostess told me I needed to have long pants. I had to go back to my room Men are also required to have collared shirts at these restaurants polos ok.
Not sure if all the restaurants enforce the rule. I saw men in the Mexican restaurant with shorts and no one said anything to them. They also had kereoke one night. Overall not a huge place for nightlife. Playa Del Carmen is about a 30 minute ride which is more lively. There are several bars on the property. One is a quiet sit down "martini and sushi" type bar, and the other is a sports bar with a few pool tables. There is always music and a party like atmosphere in the plaza.
Perks Member 3-Night Family Fun Deal!
This resort is about 30 minutes taxi ride to downtown, so if you don't mind that, then you can find party bars there. But there is a very active nightlife in the hotel plaza every night outdoor bar there. They have nightly entertainment and usually a good band or DJ til at least mignight. The sports bar is open til 2 am, as well. Do the restaurants require a reservation? The last resort we were at required reservations for the restaurants! We had no idea and by the time we wanted to make a reservation, the restaurants were booked for the week!
There are no reservations at all at this resort, and it wasn't a problem at all. The restaurants do not require reservations, first come, first served,. None of the restaurants take reservations -- if you go at popular times you will have to wait a while. We had a group of 6 but we never waited longer than an hour. Reservations are not required. Dress code is required. This resort is first come first served No reservations allowed, but be prepared to wait up to 1 hour during the busiest times and at the busiest restaurants. We typically only waited twice during our week there, but we dined early.
No reservations needed, which is great but they do state there may be a wait between there busy hours of No, they do not require a reservation. For most evenings, we were seated right away or had a minimal wait. Only for the men in the restaurants They should wear slacks no tanks and no flip flops for the men. It is pretty casual. You will be fine in jeans, but you will find that most take the opportunity to dress up. The Valentin Imperial Maya has a dress code for all of their specialty restaurants please see below: Dress code: Casual shorts, bermudas, and t-shirts are welcome. No tank shirts, swim suits or wet clothing will be permitted.
Dress shoes, casual shoes or sandals must be worn. Yes there is a strict dress code for dinner. I brought pair of shorts and did not wear a one. Swim trunks during the day and then at dinner, long pants and shirt with sleeves for the guys and dress or capris for the women. It is well worth the dress code for the food. It is impeccable. No regrets. I live in jeans at home; it was nice to wear something different! The dress code is enforced in the restaurants. Males must wear long pants and a collared shirt. No shorts or open-toed shoes. We didn't see anyone turned away, but all were dressed appropriately.
One gentlemen made a reservation for later in the evening. He was reminded of the dress code because at the time he was in shorts and tee shirt with flip flops. There is no dress code for the buffet, or special dinner nights. Yes - the dress code is enforced. So know that going down to the resort. The outdoor restaurants allowed walking shorts and nice sandals.
But the rest require nicer dress for dinner. I saw several people turned away at the door for not having proper attire. But it was a lot of fun dressing up for dinner. Just go with it and you will have a great time. Was there last week of May, Two of six restaurants are very casual. The dress code is long pants and collared shirt, they held to that but jeans were acceptable. We weren't aware of the "dress code" til we got there but they state they require men to dress in long pants and closed toe shoes. We did see plenty of people dressed casual and don't think they would turn away someone for dressing too casual.
I did see some people without collars but the shirts were nice shirts. No tank tops. What's the weather like in july, beginning of august? Hurricane season is officially from June to October, though the end of the season sees the most hurricane activity. In July and August, the average low is 77 and average high is Be prepared for that. I would recommend frequent re-applications. We had mostly sunny 90 degree weather. Very very humid. Hot and humid. But well worth going! Portable Beah Umbrellas? Can you bring your own? If that's the case, I would like to bring my own if that is possible.
You would likely be able to bring your own beach umbrella on vacation with you, however we advise checking with your airline directly as this may be considered a oversized piece of luggage and may incur a separate fee. You can bring your own umbrella, pool raft, etc. We were up and walking the beach every day by 7 or and had no problem getting a palapa.
Also - most early beach goers leave by 1-ish pm. So a little later in the afternoon there isn't a problem finding shade either. We never saw portable umbrellas, but that is an excellent idea and I don't see why it would be a problem. So many people come out and put towels under the palapas and then don't show up for hours, leaving the only available chairs out in the blazing sun. A portable umbrella would solve that issue! We had no problems finding seats at the main pool or on the beach. We went daily and stayed at the end of June. I go to that resort every year and that situation is not that bad.
The place is huge and they have plenty of umbrellas. I never have a problem with that. There was no problem with finding a unused shady area. Are singles welcome? This resort is an adults-only property, and singles are welcome at this resort. We saw and spoke to several single people.
They were there with at least one other person, though. Both male and female singles were seen. We just got back and the bulk of the clientele were couples, friends traveling together and familes. I would not consider this a singles resort. Singles are definitely welcome. I will, however, say that the rooms are not exactly made for 2 friends who want to share a room.
I say that because the bathrooms are very open. There is a main door to the bathroom though that can be shut. There were several single people there when we went last week. They were there for a couple of different weddings that were taking place. They seemed to be enjoying themselves. We met two single women from Oregon on a trip and four single women from NY on a trip I guess they are, did not see any though.
Singles are scarce at this resort. What has the weather been like recently? Rain will come in for about an hour and then go back to sunny. Is there a sand volleyball court at this resort 10 answers. There is a beach volleyball game twice a day! Pool volleyball, as well. Yes, the beach has one, and the hotel staff get's a game going all the time. There is a sand volleyball court on the beach. There is also a volleyball net in the main pool.
But from what I can tell there were certain times for games? We played every day. They play at 11am and again at 3pm. Court is close to a bar, for that cold beer. Yes, there is a sand volleyball court. They also have 2 games a day that you could join in. Is the pool a salt water pool? I read a review saying it was salt water but that was a long time ago. Can someone please confirm who has been there recently. It does not appear that we have anything on file confirming the pool a salt water pool.
Just got back last week. The main pool is NOT salt water. I can't speak for the other pools, but I heard no mention of salt water being in them from other guest who had used them. Its clorine. Question about inclusive alcohol 6 answers. Do they serve Makers Mark bourbon and Stolichnaya stoli vodka, and if so, is it considered part of the "inclusive" deal? If they don't have Makers or Stoli, what kinds of bourbons and vodkas are inclusive?
Not that I Saw I didn't get the privilege package Yes, Maker's Mark. No Stoli. All liquors are included, everything you can order other than lobster is included. This is the only resort we have been to 3 times here where there are no limits to brands and all are included.
The only exception is if you want a special non-house wine in the restaurants. PS the house wine is very good. Not sure about Makers Mark but no stoli, has to drink Finland. Yes they do, they serve both. They have several kinds of all liquors and the bartenders are outstanding! In the cigar bar they have very good scotch as well. No makers, but there was Stoli. There was no separate charge. I do believe I saw Makers Mark up on the shelf. I do know I saw Johnnie walker Red and Black as well. They had a lot of top shelf liquors, I think only in the French restaurant did they have higher end stuff Dom Perignon for additional cost.
What kind of swimsuits do most women wear? Any swimsuit which can be found in a major department store is acceptable. I saw regular two piece and one piece bathing suits. No one was risque All kinds. I took both a tankini and a 2 piece. Whatever you are most comfortable in. There were bikini's, 1-piece suits, and some of the Italian women like to wear thong-like bottoms! Most women wore bikinis at the pool- with coverup dresses when when walking around the resort.
Others were wearing one pieces.
Valentin Imperial Riviera Maya
I saw one woman out of probably wearing a thong bikini. Her accent hinted that she was a European. What kind of beer and liquor do they serve? Is the liquor premium? Please give the names of specific brands? What kinds of beer do you serve? Is the beer served in bottles or cans or is it served from a keg.
Special Touch Caribbean Spice Grinder
The speicific brands of liquor and beer can vary, therefore you would be best to check directly with the resort as they would be able to advise on exactly what brands they are currently serving. Dos Equis was the beer I saw most frequently at this resort. Dos Equis and another brand was stocked in the mini bar everyday. They also had a lot of Coors products. If you leave the resort grounds for excursions, etc. All beer was served in a can. Lower end brands of liquor were used to make mixed drinks, but you could request higher end brands.
