    X-Hale Club & Swim-Out is a must!

    We actually went in July 2018 but better late than never! I will say if you can upgrade to the xhale club it is worth the money. Especially if you want quiet and a different vibe. Also, the swim out room is SO worth the money. I just want to give a shoutout to the following staff: Papi Chulo- Spoon restaurant Victor-Kibbeh Omar- Xhale Club Luis- Strip Gibran & Alan (Bartenders)- Xhale Lounge Henry & Rodrigo- Silk Alvara & Caesar- Foam Angel- Spumante Maria & Irma- Xhale Concierge I like the breathless brand and I will probably try another one in another country but if you come here definitely make sure you ask for those staff!

    Unforgettable - see you again soon!

    Unforgettable - that 6 months after staying at the breathless hotel, I reminisce and think back how much fun we had! Breathless is an AWESOME hotel. They have everything you need. The shows throughout the day are amazing. Loved the food and drinks. You could stay there all week of course if you wanted to, but we also visited the Mayan ruins, Tulum, cenotes, and Isla Mujeres. We were busy so it was nice to come back to the resort and relax. The reason for my high rating really is due the EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE. The staff was so kind and pleasant. Not to mention, they accommodated to my food allergies. We made new friends! Big shout to: Alberto Martinez, Marcia Perez, Uriel Morales, Guillermo Sanchez, Fernando De Loya, Felipe Carrera, Jose Gutiarrez, and many more that are missing from this list. It was because of all of them, we had such a good time. We thank you for making our stay so wonderful. See you again soon!

    No Home of The Party

    Went there for our 20th wedding anniversary. This was our 2nd return 1st in 2016 Now that was a party. Now not so much. They don't allow anything! Pool party are very boring. Not what they say their brand is at all.

    No one will call you back!

    I understand that this is a time of epidemic with COVID19, but after waiting on the phone for 2.5 hours to cancel my reservation I was told they could not, and I had to be put on a list for a supervisor to call me. Even though there cancelation policy clearly states I can cancel up 14 days before hand. I was told a supervisor would call me back in 72 hours, and It has been 4 days and I have not herd anything! They are trying to rip people off by only allowing them to keep there current rate and move the date, but only dates through 12/20/2020. Anyone who has been to these resorts knows summer and fall is cheaper then spring. They have jacked the rates up on website compared to what they normally are in summer/fall to make it appear there not doing this. I’ve been in the fall before and it’s half the cost at the spring. Seriously let me keep my dates for next year or allow a resort credit to rebook when your ready. I get you don’t want to give refunds, but be fair, and call people back! I have been to breathless brand resorts 3 times in Punta Cana and this would of been my third time in Mexico. After this horrible customer service I might really consider looking for a new resort to use going forward.

    Breathless Riviera Mar 2020

    This is a beautiful beachfront property. Sometimes it can smell musty, but what are they gonna’ do. There is a vast wetland on the west side, and the Caribbean Sea on the East. The food selection is huge, and everything I tried was good or great. I am very ‘price’ motivated. I will come back here again when it again looks like the best value for my vacationing dollar. Note: I was here during the covid -19 coronavirus pandemic. The constant pushing of hand sanitizer seemed excessive at the time but moving forward as the world falls into turmoil, it doesn’t feel excessive at all.
