tripadvisor Traveler Reviews

I wanted to love it...

I travelled with my daughter to Montego Bay first time in Jamaica for both, to celebrate her college graduation. It was important to both of us to have a great hotel room. Breathless rooms didn’t disappoint. We were awed - modern, clean, great design, cool light settings. We weren’t so blown away by the technology (touch pads to operate everything). Agree with other reviews - drop down shower screens for friends traveling together should be standard. Or make it a couples resort. The lobby is a bit loud at all times with music and/or entertainment. Difficult to have conversations. The resort is beautiful, especially the grounds. I hope as time passes, staff will maintain it. A stickler for details, I noted things like the jacuzzi (yes there’s one on every balcony) separating from its surround in an 8 mos old property. Being connected to Secrets Wild Orchid by a walkway, extended our experience and gave us access to a beach and more food and entertainment options. Nice. Food was great overall, though we did grow weary of it (similar spicy sauces) by the end of our five night stay - maybe offer even more menu options? We ate at the hibachi place at Secrets one night. Btw, Houseboat Grill is right down the street - AMAZING and worth the $$$. The woman who worked the Breathless omelet station (Kamele?) was consistently friendly and happy, singing and had a kind word for all. Service was inconsistent. The butler service? We met our butler on the first full day. She escorted us to breakfast, reserved chairs for us at the pool and got drinks for us. After that she was off most of our stay. When I asked for her (she didn’t seek us out) she mentioned that she had a partner when I questioned why we hadn’t heard anything. We were never introduced to said partner. I did witness the butler service working for others. We never received the coupons that were part of our package - shame on me for forgetting to ask when we checked in. When I mentioned it at check out - it was shrugged off. We liked O’Neil, one of the bell hops. He gave us our room orientation. Very friendly and helpful. Patricia, our housekeeper our entire stay was super sweet and helpful, informative about Jamaica as well. Both are assets to the team!Be careful when setting up your own transport. I was quoted $60, $30 for a ride to Houseboat Grille right down the street. The front desk informed me that Houseboat would actually provide a complimentary round trip ride. Things like this made me feel I couldn’t trust what I was being told and that everyone was just out for a buck. This is something a good knowledgeable butler could have helped me with. Remember I mentioned the slick fancy room iPads? Well ours fell off the bed (a short distance from the mattress to the floor) and cracked in one corner. I shared this with the staff including the manager on duty, who was less than accommodating. She told me I’d have to pay yet there was nothing ANYWHERE that stated the costs for a damaged iPad - nor are the iPads protected with covers or screen protectors. I dropped my phone on the floor while standing - not a scratch. The charge went from $250 to $200. All the manager could say was you signed a document stating you’d return the room in the condition you found it. Again - show me where it says how much it costs for a cracked iPad or for damages other than smoke. I was told to wait to speak to loss prevention on day two of my quest to resolve the matter because the manager who promised to get back to me and never did - was off, this our last day. I waited and waited for loss prevention to post in the lobby, who also said they’d call back and never did. When I went to check out, they asked for my card to charge me the arbitrary $250 then after me questioning is it jumped $50 —- $200. They didn’t ask for my credit card at check in for incidentals. What I also found interesting is that originally the manager was going to charge me the same fee for smok damage to the room. I’m sorry- what?For this reason (mainly) and in part because we didn’t receive the coupons or experience the butler service - I can’t recommend Breathless and won’t return. Sad too, because it’s a beautiful resort and we had a great vacation including the excursions. I expect to feel that everyone at my hotel is appreciative of my business.

Buyers Remorse: Disappointing 30th Birthday Trip

I stayed at Breathless Nov 2-7, celebrating my 30th Birthday and engagement with a couple of friends and the Bae. I really wanted to like this resort, I read all the reviews and paid a nice sum to attend. But nothing about this trip made me want to return. Pros:The lobster tempura and all the food at the roof top bar was amazing! The rooms are just as beautiful in person as the picture. The tablet feature is impressive. The foam party is LIT and a guaranteed day party!You also have access to everything at secrets and they don’t have access to Breathless without passes to the foam party.Cons:Room service takes at least an hour for EVERYTHING and your food may or may not be hot. It’s obvious they are waiting for multiple orders and bringing them all at once instead of as the order is ready (I almost got someone else’s food). Like I legit waited 90 mins for 2 bowls of soup, tea, croissant, and bagels . And guess what? My soup was cold, my croissant was warm but was sitting in a puddle of water on the plate. I guess it was frozen and they microwaved it in the plastic. Either way it was unacceptable.My Buttlers (we had two) didn’t make much of a difference in our stay. I was actually pretty annoyed with the young lady. We expressed that this was our first time here and we wanted to go shopping and hang out. Instead we were taken to some run down strip where everything was closed. They didn’t mention that most things close before 6pm. When we returned he tried to charge us $60 for a trip to no where!While that was disappointing, we figured we could try tomorrow. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to leave the resort because every driver wanted $60-$100 USD for a cab ride. WTF! Seriously, I’ve been island hopping in the Caribbean all summer (St. Thomas, St. Lucia, St. Kitts, Barbados, St. Marten, and Puerto Rico this past June) and you mean to tell me a cab on the “poorest” island is the same price as a damn excursion?!!You’d think that our butlers would look out and set us up with a deal. But she was too busy waiting for her cut of the over priced fair. She even interrogated my friends about which driver took us and how much we paid.Overall, the staff need training on hospitality. When you pay a large price tag you need more than a smile, you need good service. You can’t give me 2 star service at a 5 star resort and expect a tip! I was very disappointed and do not plan to return to the resort or the island. The entire vacation felt like one big tourist trap.

Nice Resort But Would Stay at the Secrets Properties Next Time

Breathless is a newer resort under the AM Resorts umbrella. The staff here are wonderful and friendly. The restaurants very good. The grounds are beautiful. The resort rooms are very nice. The complaints I have are as follows: 1. Shades on all the all glass shower should go all around for friends sharing a room. (This resort is geared toward couples all the way!). 2. The coffee maker didn't work. 3. The hairdryer didn't get hot to dry my hair. 4. A request for a new dryer was ignored. 5. A request for more closet hangars through their app wasn't fulfilled. Also, the entertainment for all three resorts was so mediocre compared to other all inclusives I've visited. I loved the jerk chicken chefs at lunchtime and late night to get something to eat (fantastic!) and also the man who cut coconuts for a drink. The grounds of all three resorts are well kept and just beautiful. You can get a great early morning walk each day by making the loop 3-4 times. There is a great variety of restaurants and cuisines to dine at all the properties. The shopping is just okay. They need to step that up, too. I would definitely come back but stay at one of the sister Secrets properties. I was at Secrets 90% of the time on my trip anyway for dining, entertainment, pools & beach.

The Best Trip Ever

The best trip of my life my daughter and I stay at Breathless Nov 2-7. Beautiful place the rooms were very nice and we also had a great view right by the pool. Service ok but the food was not all that great we had to go to Secrets to eat which was a long walk however we was satisfied.Entertainment was great I really enjoyed dancing with the crew. There was a young lady by the name of BRI she was really nice her and my daughter who is 27 engaged in conversation nice girl.OMAR was the best he made sure we was good throughout the entire trip.

Wow

This resort is amazing and quite sexy. The daily foam party and the poolside bar isn’t favorite. The staff is very accommodating and management quite friendly. I️ visited on a girls trip but felt like this was more of a couples resort the property is adjacent toSecrets St James and Secrets Wild Orchid so we spent a lot of time there. Butlers service and 24 hour room service were life savers. The food was delicious and they offered a wide variety at ever medal. I️ will definitely be visiting again.
