My boyfriend and I are going to the VIM for the first time. We had been going to the Barcelo Tropical for several years until a bad experience last year so we are going to try the VIM. Been to Mexico at various other resort for the past 12 yrs. so Mexico and all inclusives are not new to us. We are wondering about the daytime restaurants, my boyfried likes to just put on sandals and a tank top over his swim suit and go to a buffet for breakfast and lunch, is that acceptable at the VIM? Is there a buffet for dinner or do you have to go to one of the restaurants? Any suggestions on a room, we prefer to be on the 2nd floor (being close to the main pool is more important than a view). Anyone have a map of the grounds? Any other tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. We booked this vacation at Christmas time so it's been a long wait I am so ready !
