My friends and I stayed at Breathless for a few days because we hadn’t seen Each other in like 6 or 7 yrs. The trip was amazing. What was more amazing was the staff. I have to give a huge shoutout to Leon the head butler. Along with Leon I must say Kristina and Orlando. These 3 gentlemen made our stay at this resort simply fantastic. They were very attentive , accommodating, professional and overall nice guys. I won’t go into every detail, but I must mention if you happen to stay at this resort please please request these guys and I promise you won’t regret it. As for the entertainment Babygurl and Lucky Charm were great. I pray that the hotel recognizes these gems they have employed and give them their just dues. Respecting a happy customer who will be recommending this resort to all my friends because of the amazing staff. Read less

My husband and I stayed at Breathless Mar .14-21st. This was our very first time to Jamaica. The view is beautiful at Breathless even though it’s the bay and not the full ocean view. However, since you are a guest at Breathless you have full access to Secrets St James and Secrets Wild Orchid where the beach and ocean are breathtaking and only a short walk away. The resort is smaller than the 2 adjoining Secrets however; we found the service to be so much more personalized at Breathless! Upon arrival - we were promptly greeted with cold towels and purple champagne. We suggest changing your clothes when you arrive as it can be a little wait if your plane comes in before noon like ours did and check in is not until 3pm. The staff is very accommodating to ensure your wait time for your room is not wasted in the lobby. Get some lunch at Altitude on the rooftop or at Fishnet or just lounge by the pool or take a walk over to Secrets to see the gorgeous views! The rooms are spotless and modern! So many amenities provided such as toothbrush, razor, mosquito spray, mending kit, bath salts, lip balm.. things not normally seen at other resorts. We loved the mood lighting and the jacuzzi on the balcony! Beds were very comfortable ! Check out the image on the bathroom door.. it’s pretty cool! The full glass open rain shower is awesome but there is an electronic screen that comes down if you prefer privacy. There is a clean room and do not disturb button that makes things easier. There is a little cubby with door for room service to be delivered if you don’t want to be disturbed and then place your dishes in there for them to pick up later! Mini bar with (very) small fridge for your water and drinks that is refilled daily. Our Maid and turndown service were fabulous! You are assigned two butlers so that if one of them is off you always have one there. Butler service: You will be given a cellphone shortly after arrival to use to contact your butler. Our butlers were Leon and Krischna. We are very partial and can tell you we had the BEST ones however; Kimsan was also very helpful and pleasant as were others! Ours were the best... Leon and Krischna surprised us with a special chefs four course dinner one night to honor our anniversary, rose petals in the room, a small cooler of beer for my husband to have by the pool, and (upon request) pizza and bringing us the worlds best KFC to try! They will accommodate your needs as you wish.. we didn’t need our clothes pressed or put away but they provide all those services. If you have questions, issues, they will help resolve them. They truly are there to make your experience the best! If you are lucky like we are they will become part of your family before weeks end! We had Breakfast every morning at spoon.. the food is so good and fresh. Teresa is there to greet you and make sure you have your coffee, tea, mimosa or Bloody Mary and Vicki is there making your omelette as requested! They even have fresh smoothies available at breakfast! Bridget at Wink introduced me to a fresh papaya, banana and oat smoothie that was awesome! Jamila at Wink will get your iced coffee and / or premium drinks just the way you want them! Ann Marie is not only an awesome waitress at the pool but she makes some great drinks!! Ask her for a special drink and she will whip one up just for you! Her smile is contagious! Olivia will introduce you to Jamaican cuisine at Fishnet and make you feel like you are part of her family! Owen and Cory will make sure your umbrellas are where you need them and that you are comfortable and safe poolside! Shanae will be there at 7:00 for dinner to seat you and make sure if you want wine that you have just what you asked for! Chef Michael prepared us a fantastic gourmet meal that we are still talking about! The steaks at Breathless were amazing, the jerk chicken wings were spicy but soo good! Try the Oxtail .. you won’t regret it! There is freshly barbecued “dirt “ chicken everyday at poolside and you need to try the coconuts with water inside and drink them like the locals do with no paper straw! Even though there are less restaurants at Breathless than Secrets we participated in theme nights and had a different dinner every night! Latin, Italian and Jamaican were our favorites! The Entertainment was great and there was always something going on !! DJ slim can not only play awesome music but he can dance like a professional and is truly one of our favorites! Our favorite entertainment team was Allie, Baby girl, Lucky Charm, Rick James and Kiki . Each one of them took the time to get to know us. Allie is so sweet and a great volleyball player and Baby girl will take the time and teach you a thing or two about some fun pool side games! Kiki sure can move and do body painting like a professional. Lucky charm will bring a smile to everyone he meets and Rick James will move like jagger! If you love to dance .. this is the place to be! Foam parties, dance parties at night, magician acts, belly dancers, inflatable slides... all this included in your stay and you have access to more if you want to throw in Secrets! We truly left Breathless feeling like each person we named here was part of our extended family! We will definitely be back again and hope this review helps you decide to give them a try because it’s worth every penny! Read less
