It has taken me a few days to get my thoughts together on our time a Breathless Montego Bay Resort & Spa, as it truly left us "BREATHLESS", but here goes... This past weekend, January 17-20, 2020, I, my husband and 14 other couples arrived at Breathless to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. Jamaica (Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, and Negril) is like a second home to us as we have been here (Jamaica) at least 8 times - from our honeymoon, 1st wedding anniversary, weekend getaways, etc. We are also very much well-traveled to other luxury accommodations throughout the Caribbean, but we have NEVER experienced the type of luxury and service in our 20 years of being married as we did this weekend at Breathless! From our seamless pickup at the airport to our purple champagne welcome into the beautiful lobby at Breathless, we knew we were in for a treat. Romie Morris, our Group Coordinator, is truly a gem and laid the entire weekend out for us ABOVE FIRST CLASS! Our private check in was easy and first class with drinks and light hordoeuvres awaiting us. Our private cocktail hour and birthday dinner all with delicious food, drinks and a steel drum band OUT OF THIS WORLD was something you'd seriously see laid out for celebrities. There is NO WAY it could have been better. Our rooms...I can't even adequately describe the grounds and our rooms. NO VIEW on the resort is a bad one! EVERY single view is a view of Paradise on Earth! Again, our party was comprised of 30 people and EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM sang Breathless' praises...that is as close to impossible as you can get, but Breathless did it! We were also surprised to have had our room upgraded to the Master Suite Swim Up Room, complete with our amazing butler, Krishna, who got us whatever we wanted, whenever we wanted. I can't stress enough that we've been to many luxurious 5 star resorts (as that is ONLY how we like to travel) but this suite surpassed them all - equipped with modern furniture, lighting, two- 80 inch TVs in the living room and bedroom, a bar with seating and don't get me started on the Jacuzzi tubs (yes I said TUBS-in the bathroom and on the porch) and the rainforest shower (which is heavenly ALL on its own). Staying at Breathless grants you access to the restaurants there as well as to the neighboring Secrets Resorts. The food and drinks on BOTH sides were DELICIOUS! Thank you Breathless so much for making my husband's 50th birthday celebration one he will NEVER forget. You made all of our dreams for his celebration come true and then some...we will definitely be back again. ONE LOVE! Read less

We were 2 couples staying Jan 4th to the 18th. We have experienced many AM resorts but this was our first Breathless resort. The rooms are large but starting to show their ‘party’ wear and tear. The large glass shower leaked in both rooms. The furniture in the rooms is for little people with the exception of a high top table (ours was broken and unusable) making eating room service impossible..had to eat on bed! The maid service was spotty with our friends having to call 3 times one day to get their room cleaned. The nightly turn down service was mostly a miss and if we received it varied greatly: sometimes towels, sometimes water, sometimes chocolate etc. The restaurant service and food was efficient and good. The beach on the Breathless side could do with a good raking. There is a Hard Rock Cafe restaurant right beside the beach and when they are in full swing during the day you cannot hear yourself. The a Breathless beach restaurant was a joke, several items on a 10 item menu were unavailable but we were not advised of this until we went to place our order. No top shelf booze available here either. They say the Breathless resort is for Breathless visitors only but that is not enforced. Nobody asks when crossing between Secrets and Breathless (heard serveral Secrets people bragging how easy it is to dine/drink in the hotel. It is a small resort so when the Secrets people show up there is no room for the Breathless people, not good! The pool area is small and the 2 staff who deserve all the praise go to Owen and Cory. The place would fall apart without them. Hats off to these 2 for their hard work ethic. The bar/food service around the pool is almost non existent. They have one server and one trainee. The main server is overwhelmed and they should look into hiring people to serve the guests. We definitely expected better bar service. I was offered a food menu on our last day! The entertainment staff were nice and friendly. We were in Jamaica our favourite island and had a good time but I doubt we would return to this property. It’s not the people but the lack of management intervention and attention to details that is lacking. Read less

I’m not sure how anyone could possibly complain about this resort, it’s literally 3 for the price of 1 since you get to use the amenities at both Secrets across the street!

I’m not sure how anyone could possibly complain about this resort, it’s literally 3 for the price of 1 since you get to use the amenities at both Secrets across the street! My fiancé and I came for our recent engagement and also my 31st birthday. Our butler Chase (pictured below 😉) and Melloni who just started were amazing and made my birthday so special! I’m not a huge cake eater and the cake that came for my birthday was SO GOOD!!! I hate using the term butler for Chase because he was just an honestly all around cool guy. My fiancé and I really appreciated all he did for us, even just checking in each day on the “bat phone” (the phone you are given to reach your butler and for them to reach you) as we called it to see if we needed anything! Getting the xhale club rooms are definitely worth just having the butler service. The room was great, FYI if you want to light the matches.. don’t try hahaha but Chase got us a lighter for the incense they have in the room just because I wanted to try every little thing. The room controls on the tablet were cool to change the lighting, or if you didn’t feel like getting out of bed to turn off the lights or fan it’s the push of a button on the tablet. We used it every morning for room service ordering as well. We also took advantage of the jacuzzi tub on the balcony everyday, morning and night! Loved being able to relax after a long day of eating and drinking just looking at the beautiful scenery. It was nice having the rooftop pool and bar also.. so many people don’t take advantage of that area. We loved sitting in the hot tub watching the sunset up there!! I see complaints about the beach not being on site.. it’s literally a two minute walk across the bridge. It was actually nice being a little secluded. Plus, you then get to see all that secrets has to offer. Our first night we had an amazing time at the piano bar at Secrets dancing and playing a name that tune game that I won a T-shirt! As far as food, I was so excited that Friday was the Jamrock festival and had the Jamaican buffet at night. I’m the type to really want to try everything local.. I can get a cheeseburger at home! Give me alllll the ox tail, jerk chicken, Jamaican patties, curry goat, yes please! That was awesome. I got the Jamaican special at the beach restaurant each day for lunch too. Our first night my fiancé booked a romantic private beach dinner, let me tell you .. AMAZING. It was pricey yes but it was 4 courses, all delicious, ours included a bottle of wine and also a bottle of champagne, our service was great, the ambiance could not have been better. It was so beautiful it brought me to tears! The staff at breathless, you guys are awesome. My favorite of entertainment is Ali, girl, you’re the bomb. It was so fun to sing and dance with you at the foam party and even just talk about life!! We loved her! The girl who checked us in at altitude on my birthday and also at spoons Tuesday morning is SO ADORABLE. Didn’t catch her name but she called us Mr. and Mrs. And she’s the cutest peanut I wanted to pack and bring home with us 😂 Lauretta, you really know how to do your job and keep guests happy. We really appreciate you sitting down and talking with us about everything. If anyone reads this review... if you ever need something, if something is missing, before complaining JUST ASK and more than likely you will receive what you want. No one is perfect, no resort is perfect, but Breathless wants to make sure their guests are happy and literally all you have to do is ASK!!!! Can’t wait to return ❤️ Read less

There were 3 of us long time friends staying in the Exhale Ocean view room! We had a Butler named Chase... Extremely nice, always ready to serve us! Whatever we wanted.. save us chairs every morning by the pool, and rooftop pool, brought us lunch menus and champagne when weaseled. We were given a cell phone that reached him when needed! Our room was great! Clear glass shower was fine, it has a privacy shade on the one side... Unless you all shower at the same time in your bathing suits, it speed up the getting ready time LOL we ate very well, had lobster tail once for dinner and another time at Fish Nets for lunch. Was amazing! Saw amazing sunsets on the ocean, and had great entertainment at the Piano Bar and disco over at the Secrets Wild Orchid area.. Loved having all three resorts to have all access to! Foam Party on Wednesday was a little slow, low house count.. Foam Party Saturday was so much fun!!!! Good Stuff would LOVE to go back and would highly recommend it. FYI we had ZERO issues.. room was great tablet that worked lights worked fine etc. Read less

Beautiful resort located not too far from airport. Rooms are beautiful but a bit tricky with family members staying together. (the shower is see-thru glass). Pool and restaurants are well staffed and lots of fun as well. Very clean. Definitely participate in the beachside cooking class with Jon-Scott!
