    Exception Resort!

    Breathless Riviera Cancun is beautiful! We spent last week soaking up the sun and had a really great vacation! The grounds are very well kept and the pools (there are 3) are nicely spaced with different activities throughout the day. The food was outstanding! Our favorite restaurant was The Strip Steakhouse - excellent steaks and our server, Esmeralda, was over the top good - ask for her! Exceptional service! Lovely stay at a beautiful resort!

    building 7

    I was in room 7101 / The fumes that were coming into my room was horrific. On Saturday Nov 30th I went in my room to sleep at 3:00pm and woke up with the worst headache. No one should be assigned to the room until the problem gets fixed. The hallways smelled as well. When I went to take a shower the day I arrived there were flies coming out of the shower drain. I ended up moving to Building 5 room 5106 but not until Sunday. Once I got to Building 5 the trip ended up going well. I feel that I should get some kind of compensation for these issues.

    Good time

    Overall, we had a pretty good time. Staff was great, the food was pretty good and plentiful. As others have noted, it doesn't come out very hot. Though you can't take any food to go from the restaurants (as per most all-inclusive policies), there is room service available 24 hours a day if you get hungry again. The rooms looked nice, but ours reeked of mildew. It's normal for rooms near the ocean to have a slight smell, but this one hit you in the face as soon as you walked in. We heard water leaking somewhere within the walls, that may be something they can look into. All of our clothes absolutely reeked of the room by the end of the trip (even the ones that were never worn, and were nowhere near damp swimsuits, etc.). As I said, the staff was very friendly and accommodating. A couple didn't looked thrilled to be there, but we're all human, and have not-so-great days. But everyone I saw was working hard. Several people we encountered had gotten sick at one point during the stay (my husband included), but I think it's a sensitivity to the water. Overall, we had a good time.
