Beautiful Weather, Beautiful Hotel

We used Tropical Travelers to book our trip and Jennifer and her team were as awesome as always. We stayed at Breathless for 6 nights in November for my birthday. Had a swim-out room in building 3. The swim out was ocean front and beautiful. Property was well maintained and there was visible ongoing maintenance. Housekeeping came late everyday but came everyday to clean and tidy the room. Room service was timely and the food was good. We had breakfast delivered everyday and dinner on the first night only because we were tired when we arrived from our travel.French restaurant is very good. Strip which is the steak house was also good but not excellent. We had the romantic dinner one night for my birthday and in my opinion not worth the extra dollars. Others might have a different opinion. Because of the wind and rain earlier in the day it was moved to the Mediterranean restaurant which was not romantic at all. Service at all the restaurants was excellent and attentive. Coffee at Nook was great.Used the Spa several times and the service was impeccable. Charlie Boy was awesome, he kept the beers coming and the ice on top of them. If you need service he is the go to!

Party zone!

This resort has all of what one would desire when taking a vacation. Fun, excitement, and relaxation when needed. Food was excellent and the wait staff was very courteous. Entertainment was awesome and the performers were highly skilled and really took it to the next level.Entertainment staff was excellent, from games in the pool to dance parties on the beach, they know how to entertain!Special shoutout to Sammara! By far the best of the entertainment crew, She can carry a party!I would recommend this resort to anyone looking for fun, excitement, and relaxation!

Unlimited luxury!

Unlimited luxury really describes this place best.My wife and I have travelled a lot to 5 star resorts and consider ourselves quite picky. We have visited many Secrets Resorts as we like and enjoy their high standards.Since it was also owned by AMResorts, we thought we’d try Breathless (Cancun). We read the reviews online before we left. At the end of the trip we concluded that many of less-than-positive reviews were unfounded. This place exceeded our expectations (and remember we’re fussy).The Resort…Nice combination of party place and quiet relax areas. They have 3 separate areas; Xcelerate, Allure and Xhale. Xcelerate is great for partying, very active pool with lots going on. Loved the foam party day (twice a week) – lots of fun! Allure is in the middle and has lots of energy. The Xhale private pool area is very quiet and relaxing. We chose to book in a Xhale room which was worth the extra costs for the extra luxuries. The private pool is very relaxing if you’re craving a little R&R! Throughout the resort, we loved the pools lit up with purple lights at night, and all the fire candles by the pools… specially liked the fountain show to music every night at 9:45pm. Nice touch. All of the entertainment was great. Nice variety. The other extra luxuries of this resort are too endless to list in a brief review – check out their website. Loved all of them! The Room…Very very nice. We had an ocean front room with a great view. Loved all the little unique extras… again to many to list but especially liked the numerous “preset” light settings. Very romantic. The food…In a word, awesome! Lots of variety. Even the buffet exceeded our expectations. Everywhere we had great food and my wife is very picky. We enjoyed the Italian and the French restaurants the best. Went to the Italian 3 times as the menu was sooo good. Apollo was great. I like that no reservations required.The Staff…Outstanding! All the staff are very accommodating and enjoy their jobs. Special mentions:• Eva – GM’s assistance – thank you for being so helpful and accommodating.• Keren (at Exhale Concierge Check in). Thanks Keren! You were sooo helpful and made our trip carefree!• Apollo at the Italian was fantastic and made our dining very enjoyable. Overall, we absolutely loved this place and the staff! This is above a 5 star in our view and exceeded our expectations. Very impressed! Already planning our next trip back in the next few months.

Off the Charts!

Breathless Riviera Cancun was such a wonderful treat to visit. We stayed for 8 nights in April 2017. Standing OVATION for everyone at the resort, especially the E-Team! Activites and entertainment were NONstop and great! We love having constant activities available. Fitness classes were great and so is the gym. The dining options were incredible. The buffet was sooo delicious and they still waited on us attentively! Made to order grilled meats for lunch and dinner, healthy smoothies and shakes in the morning it was a fit person's food paradise on top of being in actual paradise. The resort is immaculate housekeeping and maintenance clearly take pride in their work and in the resort. Also the fun/party pool being open later and heated is an amazing extra bonus. We will return!

Welcome to the Party!

We have stayed at another Breathless in Punta Cana and just love this line of resorts. All adult but geared toward young adults, although you could have fun here at any age. The resort is filled with amazing restaurants and plenty of activities if you are so inclined. There are 3 pools although the "quiet pool" is for Xhale club only. We found this pool a little too quiet. The middle pool is the activities pool and where we felt the most comfortable. The freestyle pool is definitely where the party is at. DJ's, techno music and foam parties. We like to party but the vibe on this side was a little risqué for our taste. Miguel was an amazing server and was on top of it at the freestyle pool...we couldn't get our drinks down fast enough. Sergio, Cruz and Charley Boy took care of us at the main pool and always remembered our preferences. The e-team was great, always smiling and just wanted everyone to have fun. Ula la, Adrian, Kyle and Miguel were standouts on the e-team. The night shows were always great and afterwards head next door to the dance club to dance and sometimes karaoke. Never a dull moment and rarely made it to bed before 2am. Every restaurant was amazing, with the exception of the French restaurant...mainly because that is not our style. Silverio and Antonio gave us amazing service.On the downside...this is not the best beach I have seen. It was small, rocky and not kept up very well. Didn't bother us, we like the pool, but heads up if that's what you want. We stayed in the Xhale side which was nice because we may not have wanted quiet during the day but when it's bedtime it's bedtime. The other sides of the resort kept it going until I don't know when. Our only complaint about this side was our particular room, which was 1110, I believe. The delivery gate is by these rooms and delivery trucks could be heard beeping throughout the night. All in all we had a fantastic time and would definitely recommend it.
