    We just returned from a short 4 day stay at Breathless. We were very impressed and will be returning! When we arrived we had a very nice check-in. We opted to upgrade our standard room for a swim-out pool side on the Xcelerate side, I would highly recommend this to anyone who is going to be more into the party. There are three different areas of the property. Xhale side which was where more of the older (50s+) laid back crowd was (and costs more to stay), this area doesn't have much party life. Then there is the large pool in the middle. This pool is for the everyday person wanting to experience Cancun. Hip hop music was playing and everyone was enjoying their vacation. Then there is the Xcelerate side which was where we were everyday. The DJ starts at noon and it goes until dark. They play Techno/BPM non-stop (which can get old) but this area is also the topless pool. At any given time there was over a half a doze woman topless and sometimes more depending on what was going on. The topless crowd when we were there pretty much all hung around each other throughout the day and were a ton of fun. Alcohol at the resort was pretty darn good as long as you ordered top shelf, which they had plenty of. My wife and I are Vodka drinkers and they had everything from, Belve to Absolute, and the pours were pretty healthy! The beach at the resort was pretty nice, its the same beach as Desires being that they are right next door to each other. I would say that the beach was much nicer than the beach at Temptations (however we haven't been to Temptations since the remodel). The washed up sea weed if any was cleaned up in the morning and kept clean all day. We did not spend much of our days on the beach because the Xcelerate pool was so much fun. The food at the resort was pretty good for an all inclusive. My wife actually thought the food was probably the best we have had at any all-inclusive resort in Cancun. The nightlife at the resort was pretty tame. The club was again playing BPM and Hip Hop which was pretty fun. The dress attire for woman was all over the board some woman were wearing the dresses found at Yandy, while others were more in Banana Republic dresses. The rooms were exceptionally clean and well kept. The staff were super friendly and a-lot of fun. I would say the only negative was that there were cameras allowed at the pool. You mostly never saw them unless the foam party was going on then out would come the cellphones and go-pros. One word to the wise...upon check-in do not allow them to talk you into the free breakfast and listen to the time-share sales pitch. It will eat up a good 3 hours of your day. My wife and I were smart enough to say no however one couple we met there were not so lucky and darn near got trapped for the entire time. One last thing would be to get to the gym early or go later in the afternoon. If you wait until 8 am you will be standing on top of each other. The gym was very nice and had lots of great equipment.
