Spent 10 days at Breathless at the beginning of March. This is our second time staying at Breathless, and we stayed at Secrets one other time. We had an enjoyable vacation, but we did notice a definite decline in service at both resorts. First the negative: We never did get a tablet for our room, despite repeatedly requesting one, which meant we couldn't see a room service menu, the daily activities, or which restaurants were open for dinner The fan only operated at high speed Some of the switches in the room did not work at all Many of the menu offerings were not available, despite having limited menus to begin with. For example, we were told at Altitudes "tonight the scallops are shrimp and the lobster is shrimp"! It was that way the entire week. We tried to have lunch one day at the Breathless beachside restaurant, but they were out of the first four items we ordered, and it is a very small menu! Most of the servers did not seem happy to be doing their jobs, with the notable exception of Dorette, who was wonderful The music is very annoying and goes on all day till at least 6 p.m., making an afternoon nap impossible There was no daily yoga, as promised; it was a zumba class The positives: The evening entertainment at Secrets The beaches at Secrets The jerk chicken cart We love that staying at Breathless gives us access to Preferred Club amenities at Secrets Daily yoga at Secrets The food at most restaurants is very good. The service at both Breathless and Secrets for the most part was inhospitable On balance, we might go again, but given the decline, we think we will go somewhere else next time Read less

Nothing short of luxury, sexiness and fun! We had an amazing time at Breathless Montego Bay, but were unfortunately relocated after 3 days to Secrets St. James amid the COVID-19 outbreak. Breathless exceeded our expectations. Our butler McCoy was fantastic, no call was too small for him. Although the resort is tiny, the entertainment staff always kept us occupied and we had free range of the other St. James and Wild Orchid pools/beach, along with all the restaurants and bars. The rooms were spotlessly clean and they made you feel like royalty. Our last 3 days in St. James were VASTLY different and was a huge downgrade, but breathless was amazing! The only downside (which isn't really a downside because the view is beautiful still) is the resort is on the bay side. The beach access is a VERY SHORT walk, across a nice little bridge on the st.james/wild orchid side. Very easy and accommodating to get to. Would definitely go back, but would only stay at breathless! Read less

I've stayed at two other resorts in Jamaica, this was my first time staying in an adult only resort and I guess my expectations were just too high. First of all the resort was overall nice, clean, beautiful etc. Although, I had read from other reviews that all the ACTION was at Secrets I didn't realize how true it was until we got there. Literally everything is at Secrets. The first night we stayed and ate at Breathless, but after walking over to Secrets we did everything there. The Breathless side is pretty quite with much less to do there . I think the part that bothered me the most is that there was no direct access to the beach. It's about a 10 minute walk. Not too bad but it would have been nice to have direct access to the beach. On our last night we got locked out of our hotel room for over 2 hours. Apparently there was a malfunction with the key device. Maintenance response was slow....there were apologetic but waaaayyyy too slow and offered nothing for the inconvenience. Also we did not have an Ipad in our room, which apparently is the way to order room service. We had to call and the room service staff were the ones who told us that we were suppose to have an Ipad. Also 2 out of 3 of the wall panels which control the lights, blinds, etc were NOT working. I don't understand why we were put in a room with so many issues because it did not appear as if they were at capacity (we went in early March 2020) The male bartender in the lobby was GREAT! He works nights. Did not get his name though. In general, the stay was good, not great! I just expected more. Read less

Thankfully Breathless guests have full access to Secrets because usually Breathless has more of a party vibe, this Breathless was boring, the pool was cold, the hot tub barely warm and the overall vibe was lame. Breathless in Riviera Maya was awesome and a great party. The Breathless side was clean, all staff was great, the best part was being… Read more
Thankfully Breathless guests have full access to Secrets because usually Breathless has more of a party vibe, this Breathless was boring, the pool was cold, the hot tub barely warm and the overall vibe was lame. Breathless in Riviera Maya was awesome and a great party. The Breathless side was clean, all staff was great, the best part was being able to go to the Secrets side, most if the restaurants were there, the beach and the PEOPLE. We would recommend the resort as a whole. Read less
