Now for the bad part;the food is very poor quality.No authenic jamaican food.Food was tasteless.The drinks were just ok;your typical all inclusive resort type of drinks.The staff at the Altidude restaurant and bar was rude.It didnt seem too many of them were happy working there.The male bartender at the Altidude bar made several inappropriate gestures of a sexual nature to my girlfriend who became uncomfortable so we made the decision to leave the bar.The desrespectful bar tender's name was Tyven. Also entertainment was lacking. I would not be in a hurry for a second visit to this hotel due to the rude staff at the Altitude restaurant and bar and the poor quality of food served. Read less

We enjoyed a private, 5-course meal with Chef Michael and Jodi Ann—BRAVO!! The meal was beyond anything we expected and Jodi Ann kept us laughing, had good conversation and our glasses were never empty. The staff truly made you feel at home and remembered our names EACH TIME we saw them (stayed for 4 days, 4 nights). It’s bitter sweet to leave. What an amazingly awesome time! Without hesitation, we’d visit again. Read less

We are just leaving Breathless today and wanted to give other travelers insight that might be helpful. I named this review Two 4 One because by staying at this resort you also have access to Secrets which connects to Breathless. This gave us the opportunity to enjoy a different restaurant each night, enjoy different entertainment venues and the flexibility of enjoying the beach or the pool. Relaxation was our goal: This is why we chose to join the exhale club so we could enjoy the Butler Service. We feel so fortunate to have received team “Jeavon & David” as our Butlers. They made our vacation a very memorable one. They took care of all the details, all we had to do was show up! I give them 5 stars. Request them if you can. They booked all of our reservations for dining having given us great recommendations to mix it up a bit enjoying Hibatchi, Mexican, Italian, and of course Jamaican Cuisine. We also had breakfast at our resort But enjoyed the larger buffet at Secrets because it had a much larger selection to choose from. Get your banana bread early before it is all gone (moist and delicious)! Our favorite thing was their calls that let us know they had reserved our chairs at the beach or pools. We were looking for shade and they always found a spot. It’s all set up when you get there with a reserved sign and your room number. All your towels are there too. They check on you throughout the day, bringing jerk chicken, refreshing drinks and making sure all is well. Well done Gentlemen! Other tips: Here to party or like it quiet? Many comment on the techno music they play throughout the day. Music is so personal so if you really don’t like it all you might enjoy secrets more. They play more of a variety of music. We enjoy quiet as well and have learned to seek it out. I have also learned to tune out what I don’t enjoy while others around me enjoy it. There is a very quiet beach to the far left at secrets. Love these things: The preferred clubs The swim up pool bar at breathless Zaza the lifeguard at Breathless The atmosphere in the French and Italian restaurant The electric violin player in the square in the evenings at secrets The entertainment outside the piano bar at Secrets. A beautiful view... don’t miss it. The food: Plenty of it, some really good, but some average. Overall we found what was enjoyable! Something for everyone... stay hydrated.. it’s hot. Enjoy and find the spaces that make you happy Yeah Man! Read less

My husband and I went here for a week, for our wedding and it was absolutely out of this world!! The wedding itself was beyond expectation DJ BLU was perfect! The music was lively, diverse and kept everyone on their feet all night!! The wedding staff was amazing Shanelle baker made sure everything went as planned and the Minister was more than I could have asked for he really made this experience one of a kind. The resort was very clean well kept and the staff was exceptional! They made us feel so welcomed like we were home and made sure we were well taken care of. To name a few that really out did themselves and we can not thank enough, Our butlers kim and Dennis. Dennis really over exceeded any expectation we could have had. He worked so hard and was there for us for everything on our wedding day making sure he was by our side helping with just about anything. He greeted us every morning we were there, check on us before he left for the night. I would come back and ask for Dennis anytime I plan on going back which will be soon but I would request him because he is that good. To also keep us going parting during the day going above and beyond were Rick James(who had amazing energy, very attentive and all around good person and worker), Lucky Charm( what an excellent entertainer, kept the whole party going, friendly and so hard working), DJ Zee (who's was simply amazing, had everyone dancing and just by his energy although I wish for him to be able to live through his music and express himself within the music because you can see that is his passion and he does such a brilliant job) , and of course Carlos who waited on us by the pool and was extremely kind. Thank you so much to all these amazing people we met and can not wait to return for an unforgettable vacation/ wedding. Thank you to the Breathless Jamaica resort for this beautiful stay. Resort is close to the airport, snorkeling was amazing very close. Things to do all around!! Read less

We stayed at Secrets With Preferred Club and granted entry to Breathless. Saw several rooms but did not stay there. We did however have dinner at the altitude which I thought would be a spectacular romantic view and experience. We were with a group, two tables close with about 8-10 at each table. Service was rated at 1 by every person at our table. Slow, wrong, no follow thru. In addition, none of her coworkers or other staff seemed to notice she needed help. It was to dark to even see our plates, the 80’s music started behind us and we were unable to carry on a conversation. Food was less than desirable. Drinks were just as bad. View was spectacular! Just go for the view! Read less
