2019 4th Visit

Shelbyville, Kentucky

This year was our fourth trip to the Valentin. There seemed to be some change in the air at the resort. We had read that there was a staff turnover and did it ever show. When we arrived we were greeted at the front and all seemed to be the same, but once we went to check in we could tell the difference, almost like nothing special for this people as they have been back several times so we don't need to impress them. No offer for upgrades or privilege package ( just because we didn't get it in the past doesn't mean we don't want it this time). The food was different this trip at several restaurant. The French in usually our favorite, but this trip Ginger sushi and La Hacienda won out. The food at the pool bar was not different every day as one day was tacos and the next day would be burgers/ribs or steak. Seemed like the in the past they had something different almost every day. There were some new items such as the folded crape cart by the pool and crapes at night which we loved. The GO team was not the same at all, The boss (Edger) harassed the guest over pool mats instead of keeping guest from smoking in the pool or playing music. Music was barely ever played. We were told that it was because guest complained. That is why there is an activity pool and the golden pool is the quite pool isn't it. If it is the type of music, how about play a little bit of everything, or by hour music (1 hour country, 1 hour rock, 1 hour pop, 1 hour classic rock). The drinks and staff at the pool bar are great, the only thing I would like to see is fresh fruit in drinks and Tito's Vodka. The house keepers didn't seem to be on par, We did see other guest getting towel animals and flowers, I the past we got these almost every day and my wife and I left tips thinking we would get the same as in past years, Guess not. Room service was great except for one issue. On the morning of our departure we tried to order breakfast and were told not before 7am which is what the room service menu states. We did see on the Facebook page that other guest had received breakfast. This should defiantly be changed to 5am for early risers. The grounds were great as always, no trash, and very beautiful. The entertainment at night needs some upgrades, but the martini bar and the house band outside are great. The shows didn't seem the same. . Overall we had a great time and met many new friends. We will be back next year, but we would suggest some major changes before you start losing returning guest to resorts that can offer better.

It would have great if we didnt get sick

Ft Worth

Let me start by saying that all the wonderful things people write in the reviews are spot on. The place is beautiful, the staff is outstanding and the food and drink are exceptional for a all-inclusive. We stayed in an emerald suite in building 12. The palapas are literally steps from our patio, as well is the beach bar. It was perfect. The only issue was my wife was really sick with vomiting and diarrhea on days 2 and 3 and then I got sick on days 4 and 6. Not the way to spend a vacation. We only ate at the resort and only drank bottled water. We are also, normally, very healthy people. Had to be something we ate or drank there, so beware.
