E-mailing the VIM

Two weeks ago I've emailed, or tried to VIM asking to check on our reservation in May we booked through expedia. Both times I emailed reservaciones@valentinmaya.com. I have yet to hear back. Is there a better emaila address? Should I try calling? Wasn't quite sure how to go about placing a call to Mexico. Any tips?

According to their webpage, that's the correct address.

Maybe try contacting them through their Facebook page?

If you booked through Expedia, then the Valentin most likely will not actually have the reservation until about two weeks from your arrival date. At least that is what I have been told via a travel agent. They advised to contact them exactly two weeks prior with any special requests.

I concur with post #2. As a matter of fact I think I may have read somewhere that they don't actually have your info. until a few day before but, I could be wrong.

I believe it says 2-3 weeks before you arrive they get your reservation (according to their facebook page)

That is correct. Depending on how it was booked, in this case Expedia - they do not get your names until a couple of weeks (in some cases a few days) prior to arrival. Just my two cents, use a travel agent next time. They can send your requests directly to the hotel and/or wholesaler. Also, any good agent/agency will be able to match or beat Expedia's pricing. The difference is there is a real human involved if you have an issue (before or during the trip).

Have a great trip. The Valentin is a beautiful property!

You're too early. My experience has shown that an e-mail 7 days prior gets answered as they have your info at that time.

Hopefully I am not "too late" in giving you this info but I used : customercare@valentinmaya.com and received a response the same day
