    Leave me Breathless....

    We stayed at the Breathless resort from Oct 1-8. We were a party of 14 ( 7 couples). We booked through Costco travel online and there wasn’t any issues with transportation to and from the resort. The hotel is a short 15 minutes away from the airport which was a bonus. No hour long bus rides to contend with after long flights. I would highly recommend this hotel for its perfect size. No trollys or long walks to get anywhere on the resort. The restaurants are side by side and easily accessible. Pools and all bars are easy to find and close proximity. Our check in at Breathless was probably the most boring and bland of the many resorts we have visited before. No welcome glass of rum punch or beverage/ beer. They did bring water after a few minutes but a celebratory welcome drink would have gone a long way for a check in. The Breathless Resort in the Dominican had the Breathless song playing in the entrance and that was very memorable albeit not a deal breaker. Like the other all inclusiveS, they also had the welcome rum punch. Regardless of that, check in took a while as there was 14 of us but everything went smoothly and we all got great rooms. One great thing about Breathless is NO ARM BAND !! Big Bonus not to be “tagged” while vacation. Lol There is an iPad in each room -follow it ! It tells the daily activities and which restaurants that are closed. There’s always one or two restaurants closed TWO TIMES A WEEK. Unfortunately we missed SILK because it was closed 2 nights of our 7 night stay and we could not get in the nights we did try. You need to line up at 3:30 to book Silk for that night. They have three hibachi (?) tables that seat 8 each table and one hibachi table that seats 14. I would suggest to line up at Silk around 2:45 if you have a large group. Don’t want until 3:30 to line up. The rooms are just beautiful. Stand up glass double shower/ rainfall shower in every room. We were in Building 3 first but building 5 has evening sun on the patios and ocean views. I asked to move to building 5 and they accepted the move with no charge. The ocean view was incredible. In Mexico it could rain at any given time but Breathless has Umbrellas in every room and at each exit to buildings and restaurants. Absolutely fantastic idea and much appreciated! STRICT DRESS CODE FOR MEN: Breathless does have stricter dress code for men. More than ANY of the 12 resorts we have ever visited. Never had we had issues before in other resorts but Breathless definitely has stricter rules JUST for men. Men Need to wear SLEEVED tops in buffet. NO TANK TOPS. Meanwhile women can wear whatever they want; strapless, tanks, mesh cover up .... anything goes. Oddly biased. Night time restaurants: Men need to wear non toed sandals while women could wear $3 plastic flip flops? My husband had on a pair of dressy leather toed sandals and they would not let him in to the Strip. As he went to change, I sat there and watched as women came up in plastic flip flops. They never even got a second look. When I approached the employee who told my husband to change, I told her to look at the women’s footwear and asked her why did she send my husband away? She knew I was in the right and told the ladies to go change as well .... but only because I sat there and pointed to everyone’s feet. Some pissed off people that night. It was so odd to tell men one thing while letting women in with the same footwear (actually cheaper). I could see if he looked like a slob or had plastic flip flops on (like the women had). The resort security is managed by Stefan. Stefan is a man of small stature but can he carry his weight! He had that hotel under control. If you got too rowdy, Stefan will put you on a drinking “time out” lol But, he is fair... it’s only for an hour and not all day 😜 The pool entertainment daily was absolutely fantastic! From the dancers, to the synchronized swimmers, to the acrobatic team... HOLY WOW! It was like a mini Coco Bongo at the pool. The evening entertainment was also appropriate for adults. The entertainment and pool crew: Migel.... we miss you !!! Migel is the kindest, funniest soul you will ever meet. We looked forward to his daily chats and laughter. Hey Migel, Some Hole on ya ! Ulisis, aka Julius Cesar, you were just fabulous! Thank you for your good nature. Hugo, Miss Gabriella and Miss Marcia - We miss you too! You’re service and professionalism was well appreciated! Thank you for taking care of us Newfoundlanders all week ! 💕 The evening beach buffet that is offered one of the nights - Friday perhaps -was EXTRAORDINAIRE!! The food was out of this world. The French restaurant had the most delicious steak and chicken cordon blue. We didn’t overly like the Mexican but probably because Mexican was served at the Buffet every night. The buffet was good. They had a sushi bar every night that was very good. There was always something you could find that www good at the Buffett. They served all premium alcohol at every bar. No watered down cheap liquor. They made their drinks exceptionally well Some resorts just load up on alcohol with a dash of mix but Breathless actually take their time to make a good quality beverage you can enjoy. I would definitely recommend Breathless Cancun for an adults only vacation despite the minor tangles I mentioned above.

    Wow! Wow! Wow!

    I’ve been to several all inclusive resorts, however this is my first adults only. To say I am beyond impressed is an understatement. The resort itself is absolutely stunning. The Xcelerate pool has it figured out when it comes to keeping people entertained in the afternoon and the poolside service was top notch! The entertainment staff was one of the best I’ve experience when it comes to overall friendliness throughout the week. Miguel (we love you!!!) is the sweetest person you’ll ever meet. We came apart of a group of 14 and he went above and beyond to make sure our stay was one to remember. Hugo was our main guy for bar service throughout our stay and he went above and beyond to make sure we were never empty handed! The food was spectacular. We had the Argentinian BBQ on the beach which is STILL something we talk about because it was out of the world delicious and the French restaurant (service included) made our last night amazing!! Out of all of the all inclusive resorts I’ve been to, there was never one I would want to return to except this one. Even the little thing like beach volleyball and the activities, these people go out of their way to include you. The cleanliness of the resort, the rooms were beautiful. But the staff alone make me want to return as we made so many friends during our stay. Miguel (our man!!), Hugo, Lisa, Sandra, Julius Caesar (😉), Frank, etc! Cannot thank you guys enough for make our group trip one to remember! You guys are outstanding and deserve every bit of recognition! And the behind the scenes people who are constantly keeping this resort top of the scale. Can not wait to revisit! We had the time of our lives. My only complaint is the dress code for men for the restaurants. They would turn men away if they wore thong sandals (even if they had pants) and didn’t have other sandals and if they didn’t have collared shirts (even if it was a dressier shirt). And they were VERY strict with drinking and would actually cut people off. I know they are probably to keep everything under control and they do an excellent job of that but sometimes I would see people cut off because they got up to dance poolside at the party pool. Other than that, I would 100% recommend this resort to anyone! Our group of 14 had the most amazing time! “SOME HOLE ON YA” 😉 love you all! Can not wait to return!

    Great Service

    We spent 4 days at the resort at the end of September and Victor Cocom at the Kibbeh restaurant was the best. He went above and beyond. The first day there he learned that I loved spicy food and that I didn't like fish. Every day he made sure to bring me a hot chili sauce and he even went out of his way to have off menu tacos made for me because all the tacos on the lunch menu were fish. We had a great time and experience because Victor made it his mission to be the best host. He was personable(greeted us by our names) and hands down our favorite employee. We are looking forward to coming back and seeing Victor again. Thank you Victor, Matt and Jill

    Our most beautiful hotel

    This might be our most beautiful hotel we have stayed in Mexico. The service at the restaurants and most of the bars were exceptional. The quality of the food at the snackbars were very good. I loved the mojitos at the beachbar! Excellent service at that bar,they remember my drink everyday.
