My fiancé and I stayed here from March 24 - March 31. Overall we had an excellent time. The E-team was great, especially Paulo. The 24-hour buffet restaurant, Spoon, was particularly good for breakfast -- huge variety of foods, including two made-to-order omelet stations. The room was the nicest one we've ever had at an all-inclusive resort in Mexico. We loved the huge shower with two rainshower heads as well as a detachable shower head. We also enjoyed the large terrace overlooking the fountains and Wink bar (our room was in the Allure section, right above Silk City restaurant). We brought a Bose bluetooth speaker and used a noise machine app at night, and it easily drowned out the noise from the bar crowd and the music that played with the fountain show.

A couple other pros/cons:

Pros
-Tequila tasting with Alonso and Paulo at Picante. We learned all about the production of tequila and were able to compare three different kinds (Don Juilo blanco, Don Julio reposado, 1800 Añejo). I believe this only happens once per week (Thursday at 4:00 for us), so don't miss it.
-The coffee/dessert cafe, Nook, was excellent! Hot and iced espresso drinks, cookies, gelato, and other desserts.
-This was the least-pushy vacation club pitch we have ever received. It was briefly explained at check-in, but we were easily able to avoid it by not setting up an appointment. Other guests we spoke to that completed the tour said it took a couple hours and they regretted losing that pool/beach time.


Cons
-We thought the dinner restaurants were just OK, with the exception of Silk City (hibachi), which was excellent.
-As another reviewer mentioned, the waiters at Spoon in the morning were sometimes overly aggressive and talkative. When entering the restaurant, sometimes multiple waiters would try to take us to their section of the restaurant, which was uncomfortable. We would have been happy to have Rogelio every morning!
-The service overall was excellent, but it wasn't quite as good as we had at Secrets Cabo. The minibar wasn't consistently refilled, room service delivery time was unpredictable (ipad always said 45 minutes, but it varied from 25 minutes to over an hour), and the general level of service was great but not top-notch.
-I don't know what it is about the desserts at all-inclusive resorts, but they never seem to hit the mark. Maybe we're spoiled by the desserts in the U.S., but we continue to be let down by the offerings at all restaurants. We thought the only decent options were Tiramisu and gelato at Nook.

Overall Breathless is a very beautiful resort. We were booked into the allure section and but upgraded to the Exhale when we checked in. The best decision we made all week! We were looking forward to a quiet vacation and would not have gotten that at the Allure which had loud music all day long, not to mention very crowded. The Exhale was great! Very quiet with plenty of loungers to choose from. The rooms were beautiful and the Ocean front view was spectacular!! The food was great and the private Exhale lounge was awesome, especially Xavier the bartender. He kept us very entertained! Carlos, the the server at the pool was also great!

This is by far the best resort we have ever stayed at. From the moment we were checked in until we checked out, we were treated like celebrities. There isn't a bad thing that I can say about this resort. The rooms, food, pools and people are great. We really enjoyed the party pool ( Topless ). The entertainment team is excellent. Ulala was our favorite employee by far. He made our stay extra special. Thank you so much

Room Tip: I would suggest paying extra for the Xhale club side. Its quieter but still close to all the action.

Overall, this is a beautiful place with good food and friendly staff. Check-in can take some time, even if you just go back to get your room keys when your room is ready. We had to wait in line a second time just to get our keys and that took 30 min. because only 1-2 staff members were working check-in. Men, note that long pants are required for all sit-down restaurants but the buffet and pants at the gift shop were $80 some dollars. The gift shop is a huge rip off as is the spa. But, we had great massages down the beach for $40 pp for 30 min. We loved all of the restaurants, especially Strip Grille for steak and Spumante Italian (the apps were amazing). Go to Nook for a cappuccino, gelato, and desserts. The room was beautiful and modern, with an interactive ipad, lighting controls, and a huge shower with three shower heads (two rain heads). There is pool volleyball, beach volleyball, bocce ball, fun music, a great theater upstairs with live entertainment (Showstopper) and a fun bar downstairs for after dinner (Wink).

Room Tip: Choose rooms that are not above Spoon (buffet)/Wink bar. They will be loud late at night.

Beautiful resort with amazing restaurants, the Asian restaurant Silk City is fantastic for both teppanyaki and regular menu. Bites the lunch restaurant is particular good with lots of choice and tasty options. Yeckzze the bartender at the main bar is absolutely amazing! Ask for his Cucumber Martini which is the best drink I’ve ever had! Can’t wait to come back
