Amazing place! Fabulous Staff

We've just returned from what I can only describe as a luxurious stay with the most welcoming and attentive staff we've ever experienced. The hotel as a whole was immaculate and beautifully kept and our every need was catered for- the room in allure was stunning and the swim out was an added bonus. The bed was so comfortable and made sure for an excellent nights sleep. The food and drinks were exquisite and there was something for everyone. Our favourite was the Asian restaurant "Silk City" where the teppanyaki table kept us entertained and gorgeous aromas filled the room. We went to "Spoon" for breakfast most days where Miguel Cruz the waiter was fantastic and knew our order to perfection and offered great conversation and service throughout our stay. The most memorable part of our stay was the fantastic E-team who kept us entertained the whole day! From the activities to the genuine interest in our lives and holiday. Their enthusiasm and dedication to offering amazing activities was exceptional. So a massive thank you to Santino, Ula La, Alex, Adrian, Marcela, Emmanuel, Misa, Xavi and Patty- you really made our holiday special and we consider you our friends! During our stay there was a large conference which was a shame as the party atmosphere was limited. However, the E-team worked hard to tailor activities to this and worked tirelessly to make sure that this did not dampen the mood too much. In the future, if we returned we would make sure that there was not a conference at the same time as they dominated around 60-70% of the hotel and everything was dictated around this so there was less music and nightlife around the resort. That aside, it was a fantastic stay to a gorgeous resort with a great atmosphere and vibe throughout and I could not recommend Breathless enough. Ben and Sophie

Amazing girls' trip!!!

This resort far exceeded all of my expectations. My 6 friends and I had an incredible time! The resort is gorgeous. The grounds are very well groomed and the decor is modern. The infinity pools have so many different options for lounging around. The beach was a little rocky but beautiful. There are several options for bars and the drinks are not too sweet and are made with high quality alcohol. It never takes too long to get a drink and there are always people walking around by the pool, on the beach, and in the night club asking you if you need a drink. The food overall was excellent. The buffet had many delicious and diverse options, including churros everyday at breakfast!! The French restaurant, Coquette, was the most impressive but did take a long time. The hibachi dinner at Silk Road was also excellent. The only bad experience we had was at the steakhouse, where service was slow, all of our orders were wrong, and the steak itself was mediocre to bad. It is impossible to be bored at this resort. There are many activities going on every day like zumba, yoga, aquarobics, pool sports, and lots of games like corn hole, giant jenga etc. Every Wednesday and Saturday is a foam party - it was so fun!! We wished it could be every day :( The entertainment was great and the "E-team" were all energetic and friendly, and truly made sure everyone was having a good time. We had an oceanview room which was gorgeous. The room is interesting because it is centered around a clear rectangular shower. It has a curtain to separate it from the beds but for instance if your friend is showering and you want to use the sink or go to the closet, you would pass by and would be able to see into the clear shower. It didn't particularly bother us, but might be weird to some people. There are different mood lighting options for the room which was interesting. In general the vibe of the resort is "sensual" and party-focused. One of the pools is topless-optional. Most of the guests were young (20s-30s) but there were older guests as well. Overall the resort was perfect for a group of girl friends celebrating a bachelorette!! I was very impressed by the drinks, food, and service. Special shoutout to Adrian, Misa, and Santino from the E-team for being super awesome and for teaching us their sweet dance moves, and to Pascuale from the buffet who was super attentive and hilarious. Would definitely recommend!

Excellent Hotel

This resort was one of the best I I been too. All the employees were great. Rooms were very clean and the resort was beautiful. All the employess that worked there provided excellent service. The only thing I did not like about this resort was the beach, if you plan on going there to swim in the beach then I would not recommend this resort since there was lot of seaweed and the color of the water was not inviting although I still went in and the water was warm but there was nobody in it but besides that everything else was excellent the food drinks room pools I will be coming back again with more friends.

My hubby and I spent a week at Breathless the second week of June. We upgraded to the Xhale side of the resort when we arrived at the resort and would definitely recommend it. The Xhale side has a quiet pool where we spent all of our pool time. The pool area was very well taken care of by the pool staff person. He was super attentive and went to great lengths to make guests comfortable and keep the area looking spectacular and clean. There were plenty of comfy loungers with umbrellas at this pool. The service and drinks at this pool were the best we've ever experienced at an AI. The drinks were full size and made to order; no dixie size cups over here. There were two other pools; the activity pool and the party pool. Not really our deal so we stayed on the relaxing side. We never saw anyone swimming in the ocean the entire time. There are plenty of loungers and cabanas at the beach but we never sat down there despite being 'beach people' because the beach and sand areas just aren't very nice at this location. There was some decent beach for swimming in the ocean to the south. We walked the beach as far as we could each day; I overhead someone else mention that it was about 4 miles down and back; you can't really get any further. The Xhale restaurant, Kibbeh, was amazing, especially the service. The food was excellent and we ate almost all of our breakfasts and lunches at this location. We ate dinner here on two occasions, these were our best two dinners by far and I'd recommend the beef filet and sea bass for sure. Lunch is always served with chips and salsa and guacamole. Fish tacos, ceviche, and nachos were awesome for lunch. The restaurant is open air next to the sea. We also had tapas one day for lunch at Bites; chicken wings were worth mentioning here. Reservations are not necessary for the restaurants with the exception of hibachi at the Asian place which we weren’t interested in. We never did go to the buffet but we did eat at the French, Asian, Mexican, and steak restaurants. The French and Asian places had pretty good food and great service. The Mexican food was alright but service was not great. Margaritas were good at this location. The steak was not impressive at the steak place and service was also not great. Have the steak over at Kibbeh for sure. There was also food available all day in the Xhale lounge. Drinks and service were spectacular in the location as was the Mexican coffee and espresso. The coffee house is a great place to grab a snack, cold gelato or extra dessert along with a latte or espresso. Our room had an espresso machine so plenty of coffee on this trip. We did have room service one morning when it was raining and it was prompt and food was very good. We met some folks who also had dinner by room service and they commented that it was also good. We were in an ocean front room on the fourth floor of the building furthest to the south. The room was amazing. Everything was beautiful and clean. The worst part is the sheets; the fitted sheets are completely pilled which is really scratchy. The A/C worked great. Mini fridge is stocked daily with beers and small bottles of rum and whiskey along with mixers and peanut MMs and pringles. Cleaning service was generally good although one day we returned to our room at about 5pm and it hadn't been cleaned. We headed to the Xhale lounge for a game of Scrabble and a couple of drinks and it was done when we returned. Plenty of nice towels in the room and down at the pool. We had no distracting noise whatsoever in our room. Service is great at Breathless, everyone would bend over backwards for you. Food is some of the best we’ve had in Mexico and drinks were particularly good. Loved the kid free environment. For us, we would only return in the Xhale club because of the quiet pool access and access to Kibbeh, by far the best restaurant of them all. Would definitely stay here again!

NICE!

Great resort, if i come once back to Cancun, for sure again in this one! Always very friendly staff, everywhere! Nice bars all around the resort, even in the pool! Drinks all-in, everything! The breakfast is incredible, really everything as choice, nothing missed and a lot of mexican food, which i loved! The restaurants were great too, tiny portions but you can order up to three courses and a dessert! I loved the asian one and the grill! Nice Jacuzzi, a lot of pools, immediatly in the ocean, we even had a little pool connected to our room-terrasse! Mini-Bar all-in with coronitas, a lot more services which you can order by a tablet in the room, great idea! I can only recommend this resort!
