    Perfect way to celebrate a Birthday with Friends

    We have been to many different All Inclusives of various levels and prices. Overall, Breathless Riveria Cancún met all expectations. We were looking for a resort where it felt ok to party and enjoy ourselves for my husbands 40th Birthday without feeling like we were interrupting a romantic couples trip everywhere. The best part was the Excelerate pool from 1:00-5:00 each day. There were DJs, parties and lots of shots going around. Much different turn up than we have experienced at other resorts. Food was good for the most part. Always something good at the buffet for breakfast or lunch. For dinner we enjoyed the Asian restaurant the most but had good experiences at each of them. Service was great. Pascal at Spoon was by far our favorite staff member. He was always greeting us as we walked in and took special care of us. Creating a memorable breakfast on my husbands birthday too. Also, Hamilton at Spoon and Ricardo at the pool bar always seemed to go above and beyond. The rooms are comfortable and we were able to keep ours at a very cold temperature the whole trip! That was important because it was HOT everywhere else, including the restaurants. There isn’t liquor or snacks in the rooms like we’ve seen at other resorts but the fridge was always stocked with waters, sodas, juices and beer.

    Excellent Customer Service Made The Experience Worthwhile

    Friends and I recently attended the Riviera Maya for a much-needed, extended break from vocational and family obligations. The food was outstanding, the drinks were incredible, and in particular, the service was considerate, welcoming, and incredibly hospitable. In particular, I'd like to highlight two separate members of the staff who made our experience a special one. Charlie, one of the bartenders on the shore, routinely attended to all of our wants and needs, conversed with us throughout the day, and ensured his team was doing our best to make sure our group was comfortable. I know other guests of the resort felt similarly. David, in hospitality Group E, is the other team associate I'd like to highlight. David took time out of his day to ensure that the resort was meeting our expectations, played competitive pool volleyball with us, and did everything in his power to guarantee our stay was most enjoyable. Our trip was, overall, an incredible experience, and I can't wait for further stays at this destination.

    Seaweed Beach

    If you are going just to party..this is your place. If you are going for a beautiful beach this is not the one.

    Great experience!

    This was my first all inclusive and I was I’ll definitely be keeping it in mind when considering traveling to Cancun again. The restaurants were fantastic, especially the French one. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The pool was lovely and right off of the beach! I loved how you could see the ocean from your pool chair.

    Waste of money

    This used to be a nice resort, but it has taken a turn for the worse. I noticed the food in most restaurants were not tasty and not many options. They were not serving any alcohol due to an election that doesn’t have anything to do with the Guests. We weren’t notified ahead of time and there was no compensation. As guest staying at an all inclusive resort we should have been notified ahead of time. I will not be returning to this hotel and I don’t suggest it for anyone else. The only explanation given was it was out of their control. Although they knew about it and didn’t tell the guest, possibly in fear of losing money that weekend. oh, and they also have a raccoon problem that is scaring the guests.
