We were greeted by Oscar, who was very personable and welcoming. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to the Exhale Club which was very nice. Our concierge was Darwin. He was very accommodating and made the reservations for my family of five. This was a big help as the larger your party, the more wait you will have to get a table in any of the restaurants. Maribel was our housekeeper. She was amazing! Plenty of towels and she did a wonderful job keeping our room clean.

We stayed in rooms 3359/3357. The room itself was very nice, but whoever designed it did not keep in mind storage or lighting. There were only a few shelves to put our clothes and not enough hangers to accommodate all of them. The lighting in the room was horrendous. Very dark, including the bathroom. The shower was wonderful, though, very large and great water pressure.

Silk City was our favorite restaurant. Jose and Francisco were phenomenal! They were very friendly and personable! Their service was impeccable! Another favorite was the French restaurant. Food was very tasty and service prompt and friendly. Our lease favorite was Kimmeh (spelling). Very small portions and the food was awful.
Room service was prompt and the food was very tasty!

We found all servers to be friendly and always asked if we'd like anything, either by the pool or on the beach. My son lost money in the pool. I got the attention of a guard and he fervently got us help looking for it. They found it for us and couldn't have been more gracious.

It was a great vacation to spend with our adult children. We all had a blast. I would not likely return for a romantic holiday with my husband, but if you want fun, entertainment and lots to do...this is the place for it. I think the staff went above and beyond in trying to make our stay memorable.

One thing to note...there is a man who frequents the beach with his small pet monkey. He brought the monkey to us and let it crawl on my daughters shoulder. My daughter wanted a picture, so we took a couple of pictures, then the man offered to take the picture for us with our phone. Great, we thought. I was going to hand him $5. and he said no it's $30. What? He never even mentioned he was charging for them. What a scam! I handed him $20 (my husband was mad at me for doing that) and told him to be on his way. He did this every day to unsuspecting people on the beach. A couple times he didn't recognize us and tried it again. We whisked him away. Don't fall prey to them!

We had a great time while staying at the resort, but it is not 5 stars by any means. The rooms are dark and damp, which is too be expected in the climate but a little out dated and just average. They try to cover up the damp, moldy smells with a strong amount of a spicey orangey smell that drove us insane by the end of our stay. I think I would prefer the mildew smell over the crazy amount of orange spice smell.

The resort itself is nice, but everyone is trying to sell you something everywhere you go. I have never experienced this at any other all inclusive resort that I've gone to. You can't walk more than 5 steps without being approached. We got used to it, but it was very annoying. I understand on the beach, the resort can't stop people from selling things. But they allow it all over the resort.

The beach here was disappointing to me. It was windy and the ocean was choppy and had lots of coral around, making it tough to relax in the ocean. I am much more of a beach person than a pool person, but we ended up spending most of our time at the pool. Also, the chairs and huts are set up so close to each other and there are a lot of people so you can expect to be very very close to your neighbors.

The pools were nice.There is the party pool and the more relaxing pool. We didn't stray from the relaxing pool, which was really nice. Plenty of seats and we had amazing service here. The staff working this area was so attentive and friendly. We loved the service we received everywhere.

The food was pretty good and the nightlife was really fun. Also, the resort next door is great! Fun to walk over for a drink to enjoy a more relaxed vibe before going back to the louder more energetic resort.

Overall, we had a great time! How can you not with such great service and beautiful weather. If you are looking for an upbeat vacation, this is the place for you.

Room tip: the rooms above the party pool are loud but its fun to watch everything from your deck

Booked trip thru Cheap Caribbean DEAL of Fortune where you don't know where you are going until a week before you leave and guaranteed a five star resort. Well we ended up with Breathless. Couldn't beat the price , Adults only, and very pleased overall. It is about a 40 min ride from airport to Resort FYI. If you like to PARTY !! this is the place to go !! Resort had three pools one after another. The first pool is the party pool and where many of the women choose not to wear tops. Afternoon party time is 3 to 6 pm and gets quite rowdy, the foam gun was a blast. The 2nd pool is the more reserved / quite pool and the last is a combination. This pool is also close to beach, pool bar, and beach food area. Now the beach is one of the better beaches we have been to as it is more open ocean than a bay which reminds me of a kids pool. Loved the beach. Daily activities on beach as most resorts have, nothing special. Restaurants again typical choices and food quality was good overall. Breakfast Buffet was great. Nightly entertainment needs improvement but something every night. The ROCK show was great and our favorite listening to the classics !!! They had a Martini bar set up between Lobby bar and entertainment area. Also had shops for the ladies and a Coffee bar which my wife loved every morning !! Staff and maid service was outstanding, probably the best we have had. You would be surprised the service you get with small tips. They remember you and take care of you so you don't have to wait for drinks. Bring small bills and your trip gets much better service, and they need the $$$. They also stock your Mini Bar in room daily, always a plus. USE THE SAFE, highly recommended by resort. Room was much bigger than expected over looking the pool and had a Jacuzzi on balcony which was cool. FYI, they try to get you to take a time sharing tour for a $200 Resort credit, we WERE not INTERESTED. Had a small Casino with a few tables and slots, we actually came home with more $$$ than we arrived with. Love when that happen !!I Last thing I recommend is to talk to bell boys about cab ride back to airport. They can get you the same price or better than your vouchers who you book from. Now you don't have to get picked up at 10am for a 2pm flight and stop at every resort picking up people. SPEND your last few hours on the beach instead of a van !!! The ride back is a straight shot to the airport, Your Choice !! Hoped this helped. The Grizwalds 2017 !!!!!!

Room tip: No noise off of pool area at night for sleeping and it was a nice view of the interior of resort, very pleased
