No motorized sports at the VIM unless they were recently added.

I was there in October 2010 - no motorized sports at that time.

There are a lot of rocks (ironshore) right along the water's edge at much of the VIM's beach area - totally not conducive to zipping up and down on a jet ski. I don't know if this is the reason they don't have that sort of thing at the VIM.

I'll be honest, I'm not sorry there aren't jet skis etc. at the VIM; the sound of those things buzzing up and down all day really "harshes my mellow" when I'm getting my beach on..... not that anyone asked!

As for weddings there, I actually haven't seen any but they're really well set up for it. There's a little chapel thingy which would be perffect for the ceremony and whilst it's open air, there are covered walkways all the way there from the main reception building. (Mother Nature doesn't always co-operate just because it's your special day).

If you haven't checked it out already, the VIM's own website has a whole page dedicated to weddings: - http://www.valentinmaya.com/weddings.htm

We saw a wedding. Very beautiful but no privacy due to the location of the chapel. I'm sure they have other places for the ceremony on the resort but if you are looking for intimacy and also want to use the chapel you will not find both at the VIM.

There was a wedding on the beach when we arrived that we could watch from our balcony. It looked very beautiful. The pictures must be amazing! But no motorized sports, it's very quiet good for your 50 year olds but not so much for the 18 year olds.
