    Quick Getaway

    Our room server Pablo Picazo that stocked our mini fridge/bar daily was always courteous, polite, welcoming Overall quite enjoyable… The atmosphere was breathtaking.. Last year I had visited the Breathless Resort in Punta Cunta which prompted my decision to come here. I wasn’t disappointed at all. I would definitely recommend this

    The hotel was outdated, the property was not well taken care off. Walls needed to be painted. Hallways were old and dirty. The customer service and food were great but for the price we paid I recommend staying at the Breathless Cancun Soul & Spa their other location. Newer and nicer property. Definitely not returning to this specific location.

    Love the Energy and Fun

    This trip was sooooo much FUN! Let me tell you why. We planned a quick trip(4 nights) to Breathless Riviera Cancun for May 10th-15th. I encourage you to set up round trip transportation in advance (we use Canada Transfers) so you can have a car waiting on you with whatever alcohol you want to drink on the way to the resort. (Airport prices are insane and you can get a whole bottle of champagne for the price of one drink at the airport). We arrived to Breathless Riviera and were greeted like we were family. Check-In was smooth and friendly (it takes time to sign everything and get copies of your passport - but you have champagne while you check-in so start relaxing on Mexican time). The room was in building 7 looking at the beach. The rooms are sexy and fun with the different lighting options. Don't hesitate to call every morning for water and different beer options along with scheduling your room cleaning. We loved walking to dinner every night because the walkways are lit up and the landscaping is so well maintained and possibly the best I have seen at a resort. The dinners were all so good. The food is really really good here. Check the schedule and ask what's happening every day and night while you are there. You don't want to miss the day parties, shows at the theatre, or events at Wink bar. We had a belly dancing/violinist show at our steak dinner, dinner on the beach one night with a fire show (Asado style BBQ). and really good french and sushi dinners. Sushi was fresh and the service at every restaurant was attentive and friendly. Esther at the sushi restaurant is so nice, helpful, and friendly. Joaquin and Luis were also great servers. There is a sommelier on site - her name is Derya and can help with wine options and pool service. She is really helpful and knowledgeable. Jorge will get your cabana set up. I suggest always making the shows at the Showstopper theatre a nice after dinner thing to do (grab a drink before you sit down). From the showstopper to the disco - always good music playing from DJ's like HAGI that has everyone on the floor. The themed day parties are where you want to spend your days. DJ, swim up bar, go-go dancers, acrobat shows, and sunshine make every day makes for the perfect day. The bartenders at the party pool were fast and ready to make whatever drink we wanted - Fernando and Wilberth are so nice and full of positive energy. Our trips are so much MORE fun when we meet other people. The vibes are great, you see people throughout the day and night so meet them - it will enhance your experience. All this entertainment is well planned and carried out by the entertainment staff. Omar is everywhere and always smiling. Yoshi is full of happiness. Victor with the bottle service. The breakfast buffet is full of choices and options. Delicious. Our servers every day got us started with the right energy. Pascual, Zitlaly, Jonny, and Angel were ready with coffee and smiles. Ask for the mimosa with a splash of tequila - it works.

    Quick trip to Mexico

    The service was excellent, the entertainment was great as well, the food was much better than we expected. We are beach people, so the lack of beach was disappointing. However we knew that before we went and the pools more than made up for it. The beach did not have a lot of seaweed and the view was pretty.
