Breathless takes your breath away!

I highly recommend staying here. It just opened up two months ago. The service was great, food was delicious with beautiful presentation. At breathless, it's all inclusive luxury and that's what you get! The rooms are very comfortable even though you don't spend much time in them! The spa was top notch and perfect for relaxation. Lots of fun things to do at the resort throughout the day and evening. I was impressed with the entertainment at night. There are two pools to choose from (one more upbeat with a great dj all day if you want more of a party atmosphere, and the other is more low key). The view is amazing... You have the marina on one side which is steps aways to walk around, and the beach is on the other side so you have easy access to that as well. It's located in a great area where there's tons of activities to do if you want. I don't have any complaints about this place and would definetly go back!

Spoiled with luxury!

We brought six people to Breathless. Our 33 yr son and girlfriend. Our 22 yr daughter and her friend. My husband and I are in our 60's. We all had an amazing 6 days at the resort. First, we loved the location with Marina on one side and beach on the other and the ease to shops and town. We all used the paddle boards and kayaks which were free of charge! Another benefit! A few mornings we had early excursions and used the room service for breakfast with no extra charges. We loved the fact the employees all spoke some degree of English--so communication was easy! {We've been to resorts where communication was impossible.} The food was good. None of us were crazy about the desserts which was good because we ate to much main meal. We loved David who waited tables during am. and lunch buffets. Adrian at Spumante had the best sense of humor as did all waiters at Spumante. The only things that we did no like were; 1. When we first arrived we were exhausted from long travel. They immed. bring you to another lounge and try to sell time shares and warn not to buy excursions anywhere--but from them. We shut that conversation right down. We had spent a lot on this vacation--and didn't want to be hassled, no less wanted to get to our rooms and freshen up. To which we were told at 2;30--our rooms were not ready. Everyone we spoke to was annoyed with this practice. Wait a few days. Let your customers get familiar with the resort and what it offers. It makes no sense at all to bombard tired travelers. I wanted to leave the minute this woman sat us down. I expected solicitation on the sidewalks-- This practice cheapens your resort. 2. The resort has no way of identifying it's clientele. They do not stamp your hand or give you ID bracelets. We all liked this at first--then were asked our room no.'s about 50 times a day--going to buffets out on sidewalk, walking back from town entering resort,, out on beach,--again and again-and again. The same person often within minutes asked us 4 times. We should have written it on our T-shirts! Don't know the answer to the problem--but it gets annoying the 100th time in the day. 3. Breathless is building a cruise ship port dock to empty cruise ship guests by the hundreds at the resort. The cruise ships park in bay right outside the resort almost every morning. I can see this resort sell beach "day passes"--etc. They already sell day passes to cruise ship passengers to beach and restaurants for $110.00 a day { we met a cruise ship guest that had day pass to Breathless}.I know their there to make money--but I doubt we'll return when this dock opens. If we wanted the ambiance of a cattle drive on an over packed cruise ship---we'd take a cruise.

Can't wait to go back!

This was an awesome vacation. The staff is friendly & courteous...especially Cruz the waiter. He never allows your drink to go empty & goes out of his way to fulfill special requests. We also enjoyed the variety of eateries onsite.

Going in wrong direction

This is my second time staying a Breathless Cabo San Lucas. We did the deal of fortune and got a decent price. The first time a stayed here a year ago it was almost brand new and it was literally a 5 star experience all around. It has since seen a decline in the day to day operations. Likes: location is amazing. Swimmable beach 2 pools and the views are amazing. Service for food and drinks are top notch even room service Dislikes: Even though the service for food and drinks are amazing...the actual food is sub par for a 5 star resort, drinks are weak, watered down, and too much sugar. You need to be specific when you order and watch them if you want a decent drink. Food options: They do a great job of trying to be 5 stars with it, however the food is nowhere near that. CONSTRUCTION. This has been going on for 2 years and it was awful. Unbearable noise woke us up and jack hammering and saws right outside our room. No mention of construction on their website or any warning of it. On two separate occasions we had workers come into our room when we were in the shower. They knocked repeatedly and eventually came into the room. It was very awkward and unsettling. I could go on about every detail, but I won't. If it's your first time here you will probably think this place is unbelievable. For me it was my first stay, however, my second showed me this place is no more than 3 1/2 or 4 stars. I just don't think it should be advertised as a 5 star resort.

Best Vacations Ever!

This has been by far the best money I've ever spent. Everything was perfect, no flaws. The hotel is divided in two buildings. One for the rooms, which has the relaxing pool and a couple of restaurants and bar, and the other building has the party pool and the rest of the restaurants/activities and beach. I have never been happier. The service was amazing, you truly feel like a queen/king. It is adults only, the only kids you'll see are at the beach, if anything. The beach itself gets deep rather quickly, but I do not mind this at all. It's not calm water and it is pretty cold but since I went in august, it was very okay for me because it was really hot. The relaxing pool is by all means, very relaxing. The party pool is really a party I believe starting Thursday/Friday and the weekend. I got there on Tuesday and it was quite calm as well but Thursday it got a little packed so the party began then I guess. The restaurants were really good, no reservation needed and face the beach. The room was beautiful and all face the marina, the room service and the attention was incredible, like no other. I think the most important message to take from all of this is that it is 100% worth it. I recommend this hotel 100000%. Also, my opinion, do not pre-pay the excursions offered by the hotel. You can get them there from people at the beach at a fraction of the price and it is totally safe. I actually paid for one while there and it was 100% better than the prepaid one. So... buy it there, much much much much cheaper (big big difference). The only thing I regret from the entire trip is that I didn't get enough days, other than that, everything was absolutely amazing!

Lots of room for improvement...

We love coming to Cabo and used Wheel of Fortune in the past to choose a hotel, since it guarantees 5 star, adults only and all inclusive. Last time we stayed in a sister hotel - The Secrets and that was truly extraordinary experience! Unfortunately, Breathless did not get even close to our expectations and certainly has a way to go before claiming to be a 5 star resort. It is modernistic in architecture, however feels so out of place : cold, industrial , mute, with bare grounds. Especially lobby is unattractive ; dark with low ceilings, stark white, hospital like hallways in the buildings, with stripes of narrow windows, which are utterly odd, since block the ocean view! And then the music.... Blasting non stop, different kind on each floor , overlayering into cacophony and rather maddening. Have you seen a movie " Flying over the Cuckoo's nest"? - that is the feeling. We ( I stayed with my daughter) slept with headphones in for the first couple of nights. Don't stay in the wing facing marina: while views are lovely - you wake up to gasoline fumes from the boats in the marina. As for food: breakfast buffet has rather limited choices and the same every day, tapas restaurant is OK, we had one ( 1). hence, memorable dinner at the seafood restaurant : excellent presentation, delicious! Next evening we waited for our dishes for 40 min. left to another one only to wait longer, we ended ordering it into our room, arrived 40 minutes later. Room service is limited to a bar menu. Hotel is clean, staff is helpful and friendly, beautiful beach! However, 5 star hotel - I'd say not...

Above and beyond expectations

Both the beach and marina infinity pools were great. Even the first floor rooms were great as they are really 3 stories up. I think the best views are on this floor. Don't let them talk you into the Exhale club just not worth it. Don't let them sucker you into a time share, which they call a vacation club, your vacation time is too valuable to waste on this. You can research later. Best location in Cabo. Marina is right there and so is the town. Cabo is very clean and very safe. Walking in the morning is best as you will not get pestered by merchants. Food was some of the best I have ever eaten at any all inclusive Even better than most restaurants in the states. Techno music was not too bad. As it got cranked up later in the day we just headed down to the Marina pool and bar. Entertainment staff were all nice, but not one of the better groups we had come across. They did not engage people. They tended to just dance amongst themselves, not sure what that was all about. Resort went above and beyond. Leaving for a walk, you are offered a water. At the restaurant the chef would bring out a special appetizer that he prepared. Pool staff would bring you guacamole without you having to ask. In the afternoon they had a parade of drinks that they would just bring out and share with everyone. The lunch buffet has no "junk:" on it. Steak, shrimp, chicken ... you name it. Delicious! Would definitely return to this resort. We did the Deal of Fortune and saved a ton and were very glad to get breathless.

Great vacation

What a wonderful place for adults to decompress. No children, great service and the best location in Cabo. Most everyone knew my name after one day. Great location near shopping and bars. Only complaint is the amount of panhandlers approaching you off the resort grounds.

Wonderful Place

We arrived on the eve of a hurricane. The mgmt did an awesome job the next day ensuring we had food/entertainment with limited power. A lot of people just didn't realize the damage it did to the town but the staff kept everybody upbeat. It also put the beach area in bad shape but again, the staff were working hard including the GM (Rene) sweeping the sand out. Overall., the resort is located in a fantastic spot with easy access to the 'party district'. Only negative we had was our room was on the marina side and the fishermen and seals/sea lions will wake you up in the morning with their hollering but it can be tolerated. I loved it. I couldn't help but TIP people because they work hard to provide great service and gratuities was included. I will definitely come back here. Our kids are grown and we. Ever had to worry bout kids running around coz it was adults only.

Breathless - Not as expected

I have stayed at other properties owned by company. This property is definitely not the same quality experienced at Secrets or Dreams. The property is one year old (I was told) and it appeared to be much older looking. My shower never drained properly until notifying staff of issue. Floors in room could use a good scrubbing. The staff is inexperienced and not very knowledgeable on events, dining, etc. The restaurants (while okay) were few and I believe this due to location. Location in Marina, near downtown Cabo gives property no incentive to provide great food as a patron will eat elsewhere. As an all inclusive property you should have great restaurants. This should include wine and alcohol. I could only get Chilean or Argentina wine by glass. US or French wine would have cost over $100 for a bottle. Premium scotch is not Chivas Regal (blended) you should have some single malt scotches. The value paid for air and all inclusive hotel was good but I had higher expectations of the property as I was comparing it to its other properties.
