    Sewage smell and worse

    Preface by saying, all-inclusive, adult only resorts are not our first choice. My wife and I typically prefer something more sophisticated and cultural. That said, we were here on a quasi business trip; the destination was chosen for us. Party atmosphere from 11am to 11pm, which isn’t bad in itself, except for the incessant and loud music. It reminds me of an adult version of spring break. Sewage smell was prevalent in the shower and out of the tap. My wife brushed her teeth with bottled water. Rooms were decent, but worn - you could tell they’d been used hard. Staff was generally very nice, sometimes juvenile though, presumably from lack of training or because of the guests this property attracts. Food was very average - not consistent or very good. Worst of all, the last day of our trip was spent in the room with serious bathroom issues, almost certainly due to food and/or water quality issues. Several people in our group were also taken down with bad diarrhea. This isn’t uncommon when traveling to Mexico, but a resort touting itself to be high quality, and with an impressive rating, makes me wonder if the reviews are legitimate or fake. I don’t like to be a downer, but I’m glad to be home and sorry to still be suffering the consequences of this trip.

    Excellence Surpassed

    Best all inclusive we have ever stayed at. Lots of hesitation prior to booking, especially in MX but we pulled the trigger and couldn’t have been happier. Resort is absolutely unreal. Food quality is off the charts, there is not a a bad restaurant on the premises. Alcohol is flowing all day, top shelf is everywhere. Don’t even have to ask. It’s a non-stop party and it’s the best money we’ve ever spent. Coming back in 6 months. As far as staff goes, Miguel literally is the embodiment of everything this brand strives to attain. They don’t have enough people like him and they’d be smart to extract everything he knows and implement it with the rest of the staff. He absolutely made our trip and we felt so included and plugged in to the whole scene. He should be running the show. Can’t wait to come back. Props to Breathless, we are 100% on board.

    Best Birthday trip ever!

    I am nothing short of impressed by breathless, the restaurants, the atmosphere and all of the fun! We met Miguel the second day we were here and he made us feel so welcome like we had been friends forever and he was here to help us have the best trip we’ve ever had! His energy and positivity was amazing, he invited us to sushi classes and helped us know the best way to take advantage of the resort! We have already talked about making this a trip that we do every year and are so happy we chose this resort as our Destiination for my 40th birthday! Thank you Breathless and thank you Miguel!!!

    A winter get-away

    An excellent resort with amazing staff and accommodations. Shout out to Miguel- an amazing part of the entertainment team, Will & the Fernandos- who took care of us @ the bar, and Daniel another member of the entertainment team for sushi making! My boyfriend and I enjoyed having the option between a pool-party rager every day, or a calm and relaxing time at the other pool. The food was phenomenal and the staff overall were very helpful and kind. We will definitely consider coming back if we return to Mexico 🙂

    My group of 14 stayed Jan 9 - 12. Resort is typical to any Cancún Resort; however, about $400 more expensive. We had a really bad ant problem in our room, we called twice to have the problem corrected and no one showed up. As we were packing our clothing we found ants in our suitcase and on our clothing. On our final evening my entire party made reservations at the French restaurant. After waiting around an hour or so to be seated, the hostess would not allow me to enter the restaurant because she believed me to be wearing “tennis shoes”. A bit embarrassing as there were other patrons watching, not that big a deal, however while making our reservations I observed several people dining in shorts and sandals. My wife and I left and the rest of our party was allowed to enter; however a short period later they kicked the entire party out for a reason that is still unknown. We spent close to 25k between all of us and that’s how they treated us. Do yourself a favor and save the money, the “party” pool isn’t worth the extra cost.
