    Fantastic trip!! Amazing staff!!!

    This was our second time at Breathless Cancun. Due to Covid restrictions, it is different, but we had the best time, and always felt safe. To me, the best part of this resort, is without hesitation, the staff. They make you feel like the most important person there. We were celebrating a 30th birthday with a girls’ trip, that unfortunately had to be postponed back in March. The staff went out of their way to make the birthday girl, and the rest of our group feel like we were celebrating on her actual birthday, including getting everyone at the party pool (guests and staff) to sing happy birthday. Miguel, is the best!! He is so sweet, personable, and the life of the party. The hotel is very lucky to have him, and he deserves a HUGE raise for making everyone feel so special, going out of his way to connect with everyone, and making sure all of the guests have everything they want and need, and are having the best time. Willberth, the bartender at the party pool was fantastic!! His drinks were great, he was so funny, and energetic. He has a huge infectious smile, and you can often hear his name being chanted by all of the guests around his pool! The two of them really went out of their way to make us feel like friends. Other amazing team members that made traveling during a time like this so memorable are Daniel, Xavi, Esther, and Fernando. Obviously, things are different right now, which we expected. They were operating around 30%. I was told they are down to around 300 staff members, from the previous 800. The fact that we still felt doted on was a testament to the incredible hard working staff. Unfortunately, not all of the restaurants can be open, and the true party pool, and huge hot tub are closed, but they brought a lot of the energy into the middle pool they are currently using as the party pool. Covid precautions- This resort is truly putting forth more effort into being safe, and making sure their guests feel safe than anything I’ve seen in the states. When you get there, they take your luggage to be sanitized. The check in has plexiglass partitions. Every staff member is wearing a mask and/or a face shield. When you get into your room, all of your toiletries (by the way, they have added additional items to their toiletries. We have stayed at this Breathless, the Breathless in the DR, and a couple of Secrets, and this was the most I have seen), the tablet in the room, any extra bedding, and other items I can’t think of are all in sealed packaging. The room feels very clean, and the minibar has a seal over it, showing it has also been sanitized. Our safe malfunctioned, and needed to be replaced. The gentleman asked me to try the new one, but only after he thoroughly cleaned the inside, and outside. There were also sanitizer stations everywhere throughout the resort, and they asked that you use them before entering every restaurant. Two bummers compared to other visits- One, when we arrived, we were told “Welcome Home.” I know this is petty, but when we came the first time, and when we went to Breathless in the Dominican Republic, we were told “Welcome to the Party!” It distinguished the resorts, and helped set your expectations. We were told this change came from the CEO, but we thought it was a miss. “Welcome Home” felt like Secrets, much calmer, couples oriented, and more mature than we wanted for this trip. Secondly, Bites, the tapas restaurant was our favorite on our first trip. Unfortunately, they have changed it up, and now it has a variety of ceviches. I’m not sure if this is temporary, or if they changed it permanently, but it was a miss for those of us that had been in the past. Obviously, if those are my complaints, the resort is doing great, and it was an excellent trip. We can’t wait to go back!!

    Good resort - Handled Coronavirus Well

    Chose Breathless as the resort for a friends trip. We wanted a place that wasn't full of couples and also wasn't full of 18-21 year olds. Breathless was perfect for this. Check-in: We had issues during check in as they said they didn't have our room types available. We had confirmation for a room with 2 beds and they said they could only give us a king bed. That room had two adult males that just wanted any room with two beds. After sitting and explaining that we weren't willing to take a King bed as we had a confirmation for a room with 2 doubles, they ended up giving us a room with 2 doubles. Upon arrival, one of our rooms did not have a stocked mini bar or snacks. That same room did not have soap/shampoo/lotion etc. Had to call front desk to get soap delivered to the room as well as the minibar stocked. Coronavirus Protocols: We were very pleased with the way the resort handled Coronavirus and safety. We frequently saw staff sanitizing surfaces. All staff had face masks. We thought they took everything seriously and were impressed. Because they are only able to be 30% full, there was plenty of space to spread out safely. Food: Overall, the food was good. We never found anything to be bad and never found anything to be great. Everything was consistently good. Service: The area where this resort shines is their staff. There are many to mention, but to highlight a few... Esther in the Asian restaurant, Jose at the Beach Bar, Leti as beach waitress, and Wilberth at the pool bar... All 4 gave excellent service. Staff is incredibly friendly and there to make sure you are having a good time.

    Nice Resort

    Resort was only 30% capacity due to Covid so portions of the grounds were closed. This was our first trip to a Breathless resort-the premises is pretty. The peaceful pool has nicer sun chairs and Awesome beds in the pool. The staff by the peaceful pool was fantastic, friendly, and very attentive. The more lively pool did not have any pool games but had hired dancers by the pool which was weird. The music was loud and a bit obnoxious by the lively pool. Not much evening entertainment right now, that we understand was due to Covid restrictions. A few guests ended up with several bites/bumps on their legs without knowing where the bumps came from. There were very few mosquitoes so unsure what source of bites was. The workers had masks on constantly and were very conscious of sanitizing everything. Overall nice property, excellent staff. A bit too ‘party vibe’ for us though.

    Dream Honeymoon!!!

    Everything was above and beyond my expectations. To the food, the room, the drinks, the atmosphere, and the staff, not a detail was out of place. Lots of precautions were taken for COVID and we felt safe. The entertainment staff always kept the party going and we're a huge part of the experience. Shout out to Miguel, Havi, and Danny for showing us a good time!

    Finally got out of the house!!

    We spent a week at Breathless for the 4th of July. The resort had just reopened on July 3rd. There was a huge welcome for all guests and it was amazing! A lot of things were “different” due to COVID, but this resort did a great job making us feel comfortable and protected. My favorite every day was the entertainment team, specifically Daniel and Miguel!!! I highly recommend this resort for any adults! It was amazing!
