Fun resort

I went with 9 women..... we had a great time! It's a fun resort. We loved having the 3 different pools! The drinks were made with premium liquor. They were pretty consistent from bar to bar. The pool bar service was excellent. We didn't wait long for drinks. The food was mediocre at best.... across the board. The best food we had was at the pool bar restaurant for lunch. ( pizza and hamburgers). We stayed in the "upgraded" Exhale building... on the first floor.. with a swim out pool. . Our room was beautiful but had a terrible smell of swamp. The swamp is right behind the resort. The smell circuited the entire time. The staff did come put Fragrance strips in our vents but they only lasted for 12 hrs. The first floor rooms in building one back up to the bus parking lots so you hear buses all night long. Th resort buses in their employees. The room pools are not heated so you basically can't swim in them... they are just pretty to look at. I would not pay to upgrade to the exhale building in rooms 1111-1117! Other than the rooms and ok food.... we had a great time. We would go back for the pools, drinks, and service.

Our vacation left us BREATHLESS

From the moment we stepped out of our taxi and onto the resort property, we were mesmerized. The beauty this resort offers is unparalleled. The checkin staff was gracious and inviting. We upgraded our room to the "Xhale" side of the resort so we could ensure a quit location and beautiful views. We were not disappointed! While the other two locations on the resort property are nice, they tend to be a little noisier that what we wanted. Our room was perfectly adorned with a modern/hip interior and offered us an exceptional view of the ocean. The mini bar was stocked daily with coronas, liquor, M&M's and Pringles. The large dual rain shower was to die for and was just what we needed after a long, beautiful day in the sun. The bed/bedding was comfortable and the pillows were perfect (and I'm a pillow snob)! The restaurants were amazing and each one offered it's own unique vibe and food selections. The best part was that there were no reservations required (except for the Hibatchi) so getting a table on our time was painless. The service was superior and you become very spoiled by the attentiveness of the staff (at EVERY single place). As a reminder, the men do have to wear pants (no shorts) and sandles (no flip flops) - aside from that dress code is elequantlly casual. The nightlife was fun, especially the evening shows throughout the week. For us, the 80's throwback was a favorite! Who doesn't love breakdancing - especially when you fancied yourself one back in the day?! Our days were spent relaxing on the beach area, absorbing morning sunshine while stretching into a pretzel during the multiple yoga/fitness classes, resting poolside in the delightful cabanas, joining the foam pool party fun, and drinking way to many Miami Vices and Modelo beers. ;) Also something to note is that the poolside bars/restaurants do a wonderful job of taking care of you with great drinks and nibbles throughout the day! Our only complaints are so minor that they are barely worth mentioning - one would be the "beach area" immediately surrounding the hotel (not the actual beach) has a foundation of cement. In many areas it was rocky so you needed flip flops. Also, the music by the xclerate pool was pretty much techno every single day. I'll admit, I'm 44, and probably would have loved this 25 years ago. We kept wishing that they would dedicate some time to other music with actual words. And speaking of age - I was a bit concerned after we booked that we would be surrounded with the younger generation (based on the website pictures), thankfully that was NOT the case. There was a fabulous mixture of ages (older (75ish) to younger (mid 20's) with the bulk of the people being 40 and above. As an aside, we did take a day to visit Chichen Itza. Definitely worth it! We took the early morning excurtion and got to the place before the BIG crowds came. This allowed for such better picture taking and exploration. We were back at the hotel by 2:00, which was great because we still had so much of the day left! Also, the onsite representatives make this process hassle free. They were fabulous with getting us where we needed to be and telling us every detail we needed to know. All and all, this vacation ranks as one of our top favorites! And we have been to many destinations. We simply cannot say enough good things about this place! Book your vacation now - you will NOT be sorry! Thank you Breathless for being everything we had hoped for and so much more!

Noise

Superb food and service. Resort is only 10 months old so everything is new. If you are sensitive to noise when sleeping do not come here unless you do not mind paying $70 extra each day for the xhale club where it is quiet. If you like it loud until late night you will be happy. Lots of seaweed in water and rough bottom make swimming not possible. Food and service the best we have ever experienced at all inclusive resort.

Left snow for.. beach? Yes

Beach is absolutely not a Brahmin lovers dream. You cannot step into the water without risk of slipping, tripping, and/or cutting your feet on sharp rocks. Gross green seaweeds cover the beach. They did try hard to clean them up, but no avail because in the morning it would be covered again. This hotel is for groups looking to have a good time in the pool, not beach. Party party party. The xhelerate pool is topkess optional and has a very loud party beat all day long. So loud it rocks through your body. The middle pool is calmer but still has music and this is the pool that the entertainment staff, or E team, is located. The team will approach you several times a day to join beach volleyball, water aerobics, or other games. If that's not what your into then sit on the side of the pool farthest from them. Sergio was our drink server for 2 whole days. He was very good' remembered drink orders from the day before and brought before glasses were even empty. The last pool is the xhale club. You have to pay extra to go to this pool. But if you like a chill atmosphere with top notch service, then it's worth it. Evening entertainment in the theater was lively but the Saturday fashion show was the best. This is a special March event. Evening dining is from 6-11. It will take 1.5-2 hours for your meal because it is always a 5 course. Including desert, which was not as amazing as it looked. We are not fans of flan--which lots of the deserts were made of. But if you get the chocolate cake he you are golden!! Room service. This will take 1 hr or more and they often insist on coming into your room to arrange it for you. You can avoid this by slicking on your do not disturb light, then they'll leave it in the room service box. Tipping--not required but greatly appreciated. Overall staff wants to make you happy. After talking to andtsff member we discovered the resort company helps them invest their money and preparers them for retirement eventually. This is not something that many resorts do, and we really respect that.

What's to Love

Blow your hair back. Beyond chic. It's an all-inclusive, adults-only wonderland in a tropical paradise.

24/7 festive vibe replete with music shows, beach parties and mega dance parties.

Treatments like the hydrotherapy circuit, therapeutic showers and Water Lily After-Sun Soothing Wrap.

The communal tables at the aah-mazing restaurants where you can meet & dine with fellow beach revelers.

 

What We'd Change

This lively resort is a lot of fun, and sometimes it's hard to find that quiet corner, but when you are looking for a little bit of peace, take a break in the resort's spa.
 

Why You Should Go

Just 15 minutes away from the airport - you're a whisper away from all the fun.

Upgrade to the xhale club, and be treated like rock stars - personalized check-in/check-out, private pool & more.

There are monthly shindigs like Fashion Frenzy & weekly partays like the Lingerie Black Light Party. Muah.
