    Celebrated 40th Birthday!

    Overall, the resort was beautiful. The beach had a decent amount of sargassum seaweed, but that was expected since it's normal right now. The restaurants were delicious, the staff were friendly & helpful when needed. There were some standout employees in each area of the resort. I would recommend this resort to family & friends, but inform them about The Deep bar. I would also rank the overall experience behind the Breathless Punta Cana, but ahead of the Breathless in Montego Bay. Resort Standouts: Wilberth, at the Twist & Squeeze swim-up bar, was absolutely amazing. My wife & I have been to about a dozen AM Resorts (Breathless/Secrets/Dreams/Now), and Wilberth is easily in my Top 3 bartenders of all those resorts (Jose/Wild Orchid & Eric/Secrets Costa Rica are the other 2). She had an absolute horrible experience our first afternoon when we went to The Deep. I had her visit The Energy pool & Twist & Squeeze the next day. Wilberth completely changed her viewpoint of the resort after that. Wilberth was amazing to everyone there. I compared him to Tom Cruise in the movie Cocktail. He was that good. For the cooking team, my wife, & I brought some friends along to celebrate my 40th birthday. This was their first time at an AM Resort. I wanted to make sure they experienced the French restaurant, Coquette. The resort concierge & UVC set up a private dinner for the 6 of us. The waiters, food, and drinks were amazing. It was by far everyone's most favorite restaurant of their trip. Props to everyone involved. The Entertainment Team was smaller at this resort than others, but they were still very good. I believe his name was Eduardo, but he was very good to discussing what you would want for fun. He told us about paddle boarding & the small sail boat, so we all took advantage of that. Him & I discussed volleyball a couple times, but really it was the discussion of beach soccer (futbal) that raised the bar. I've played it at other AM Resorts, but he mentioned they don't offer it there. We talked some more & raised more interest from other quests. We improvised with some cones & a volleyball to create a fun game of beach soccer with about 8 quests. I'd recommend investing in a couple small soccer goals & offering it as an activity. For the last person, it's actually the Lifeguard that was on staff at the time I hurt my foot. His name is also Wilberth. I was literally getting ready to play beach soccer when I opened up a dime-sized blister on some concrete. I told Eduardo about it, who introduced me to Wilberth the Lifeguard. He completely cleaned, sterilized , and bandaged up the blister on my pinky toe. He even knew I was wanting to play beach soccer, so he cut of a couple fingers from a latex glove to put around my toe. He then wrapped that in tape. I was able to play soccer on the beach for about 30 minutes, then get back into the pool for a couple hours after that. When I went back to the room the open blister was still clean & dry. Just amazing job by Wilberth.

    Cancun Birthday Celebration Ruined

    From there being feces on my toilet seat RIGHT after housekeeping supposedly cleaned the room/bathroom, to being told that I'd been waiting for over half an hour for a manager because they have meetings with important people, to being offered a cheap bottle of Tequila as compensation for potentially being exposed to hepatitis, to not ever being contacted back during the remainder of my stay for followup or anything, if say that this resort is a no for me every recommending it to anyone. I gave a rating of two because the grounds are fairly well kept, though I tripped about a half dozen times on uneven tiles, and my sofa experience was awesome, though I was rescheduled for hydro therapy without being scheduled in the first place. Staff were very unfriendly. Definitely not what you'd expect at a tropical resort.

    Nice place, bars close early, check in/ out horrible

    Over all a nice place with decent food good drinks. All bars close way to early. Also the pools close way too early. Xhale lounge has horrible service. The bar was good in there. The check in was horrible, the early night before check in again horrible spent over an hour checking in and over 45 min checking out.
