    Wonderful week at Breathless

    Traveled to Breathless Riviera Cancun for 6 nights after extensive research into different neighboring AMResorts. Have stayed at Dreams and Now Jade in the past, and Breathless far surpassed both in terms of amenities, food, nightlife, and overall resort design/layout. We were definitely impressed from check-in to check-out. Nayade, from club xhale, greeted us and made us feel welcome. She also assisted us with a couple questions during our stay, always welcoming us with a smile and remembering our names. We ate most of our morning and noon meals at Kibbeh, where Victor treated us extremely well. His service was top notch. And then there was Cruz. When we return to Breathless, Cruz at the club xhale pool, will be a large reason why. Always a smile. Always a good morning. Always remembering our drinks and keeping us hydrated with water. We wish to sincerely say thank you to these three individuals, and many more - too numerous to name. It was because of the service and the staff that we will return to Breathless, and are already looking forward to our next adventure.

    Best vacation experience!

    This was my first trip to Mexico and my first all inclusive. I can’t believe I haven’t gone earlier! This was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had right from the start. The resort made me feel safe the entire time and welcome immediately. The front desk and concierge staff explained everything we needed to know in detail and were very accommodating. The entire staff at the resort was amazing. They remembered our names and made us feel like part of the family instead of guests. We ate breakfast at Spoon with Manuel almost every day and he made sure we had everything we needed and made us feel like he looked forward to seeing us. The entire E team at Energy pool was beyond incredible. Dora was the absolute best!! She spent time with us every day and remembered who we were. They were all so friendly and real and so much fun. Huge shout out to Sandra who was so sweet and Moon, Gio, and the entire entertainment team at the pools. The wait staff and bartenders were personable and kind. The staff at the spa were great as well. Housekeeping and room service were fantastic. I can’t say enough about how great all the staff were. I honestly can’t wait to go back!

    Best vacation!

    This trip was my first time at an all inclusive resort and it was amazing! We stayed 5 1/2 days (Sunday-Friday). First, I recently had hip replacement surgery so I needed a wheelchair to get around; the resort is completely accessible, though some paths are at an angle. There are stairs everywhere, which I was concerned with, but the elevators are right next to them or right around the corner. Our room was on the first floor and we had a swim out. The swim out was pretty nice, however we only used it once on our 6 day trip, so I personally wouldn’t do that again. The pools all had stairs with and without railings so I was able to get in very easily. The only hard part I had all week was walking to the beach on the sand, but that’s not because of the resort (that’s just because sand sucks). During our trip, the staff were amazing. We were immediately treated like VIPs. The entire front desk staff and concierge were fabulous and very helpful. Throughout our stay, we requested extra towels and waters from the front desk and all were delivered in a timely manner. Our first day we couldn’t get into our room until later, so we given time in a hospitality room to change and shower before going to eat or go to the pool. We ate at Spoons (buffet, open 24/7) our first day and were served by Manuel, who was amazing. Always had drinks ready for us, remembered who we were, and helped carry my plates back to the table. While we were there we also ate at Picante (Mexican, 3.5/5), Silk City (Pan-Asian, 4/5), Spumante (Italian, 4/5), The Strip Grill (5/5), and Bites (3.5/5). The Nook is also a great place to stop for tea and coffee. We also had a spa day which included hydrotherapy before our massages. Hydrotherapy included two types of saunas (both extremely hot, but only in there for 5-10 minutes), different massages by jets in a pool, a quick plunge into ice-water, and then about 15 minutes in a hot tub. I got a 50 minute Swedish massage after which was amazing. The staff were all wonderful and I left so relaxed. The rest of the trip was spent out by the pool. We spent most of our time at the main pool, which had constant entertainment from the E Team and a great swim up bar. Our bartenders at the bar, Fernando and Wilberth, we’re excellent. Then when we got out of the pool, our waiter Hugo, was always around to help as well. We also got to meet the E Team, though we spent the most time with Dora, who was so fun and personable and made my trip one to remember. We also did some water aerobics with Sandra and Daniel, and played poker with Moon and Gio. Everyone remembers who you are and going to the pool felt like meeting up with your other group of friends. Finally, we say two shows while we were there: Show Must Go On and The Elements Show. I had no idea what either show would be, but I was pleasantly surprised for both! Show Must Go On was a Queen cover band and the Elements show had all kinds of crazy effects and visuals. Both were incredible and I highly recommend them. Even though it was all inclusive, we did too quite a bit. However, I did notice exceptional service regardless of what the tip was and I even noticed some other guests not tip at all. Service at this resort was just out of this world (But you should still tip!!). I will definitely be coming back, sooner rather than later!

    Superlative Resort & Benchmark by Which Others Shall Be Measured

    Breathless Riviera Cancun CONSISTENTLY provided a superlative experience in terms of decor, food, and possibly most importantly - staff. From the very first member of staff to the last encounter, our experience has been top notch. I was there for the Strong30 in the Foam Bar every day and the entertainment team could not have been any more helpful or organised. The shining stars were DANIEL & DORA of the Entertainment Team who have that intrinsic star quality which is impossible to emulate. Their tireless enthusiasm never wanes and they are the driving force behind the fantastically organised team. The entertainments manager ULYSIS was a consummate professional & similarly hands on, despite his supervisory role. The staff can make or break a guest's experience & it is imperative that they are treated well in order that they can bring a genuine happiness at providing the vital service that is required of them. I hope this can be remembered by the establishment. I was thoughtfully given a room (3224) right next to the entertainments section which was an appreciated touch & really made life just that bit easier for my daily fitness classes which were well attended, including by the relentless E-team who would be keen to be licensed in the Strong by Zumba format. The decor is highly maintained, the staff responsive, food outstanding and entertainment excellent quality. The timetable was accurate and I found it useful that the same thing was on at the same time every day. Travellers should be aware that the 'elegant' dress code is in place in some of the restaurants on site so men will need to pack dress shoes and long pants. Ladies also need to bring dress shoes. The party was great fun, well choreographed with bubbles of both varieties, dancers & other performers all of which were outstandingly talented. The Gourmet delight last night on the beach was the perfect end to a perfect week.
