    We're looking at booking a trip to Breathless RM. Wondering if there is any time when the population of the resort might would skew a little bit more towards the "fun" crowd.??

    We don't need the whole resort to be a TTR or Hedo scene, but it would be nice to have a few "leaders of the pack" to get the party started. It's tough to tell from reading reviews online what the atmosphere is like. Some say boring and dead, others complain about being too rowdy. Are there any travel groups that have dates scheduled?
    If we could guarantee at least ten to twelve ladies unafraid of partying with their boobs out, I would rest easy knowing the vacation would be a good time. Mrs Thumbs is quick to join the crowd but reluctant to be the first one to strip off.

    Does this description ring true with anyone else here?

    We went last October 2016 and had a great time.
    We are booked February 17-21 this year.
    There were several topless ladies while we
    there! Wife feels the same way she will join in but not going alone.

    Just a question, have you ever been to Temptation and/or Hedo? Reason I'm asking is that the two resorts are way different from one another. I'd say that the only thing that makes them similar is that you will probably see boobs out at each of them. Other than that.....

    Why not just hit the new TTR and guarantee that you'll have a good time?

    Been to Hedo, been to Desire (not TTR), multiple times each place, obviously it's difficult to compare and contrast. Each resort can definitely vary week to week depending on the particular crowd each week.
    The main beef she has had with each place is that they were both a little clique-ish. The swinger crowd kind of had a bit of a weird vibe that put her off. We did have fun at both places and met fun people at both. We did engage in some "reigndeer games" at both places. It isn't that we're against anything like that.
    The main thing she would prefer is a resort that hits our demographic (30-40) and is a classy fun resort that can be a bit sexual in the undercurrent vs. a resort that has the sexual tone first and a resort second. She has always had the feeling that we aren't quite "swinger certified" to hang at resorts like those. I'm not sure if that description rings true with anyone else here or not. I think you're right in saying TTR might be the best choice, but given the current bad reviews on TripAdvisor and her past perception of Hedo and Desire, I was thinking Breathless could be a good choice and a good time, especially if there are some other " certifiably fun" topless ladies to get the party going when we visit.

    While staying at DRM the past couple times, we'd go strolling the beach and we'd meet and talk to couples from Breathless. Yes, it was ... interesting to be walking the beach naked and stop to talk with a fully-clothed couple and not miss a beat. Not bad, not weird... interesting.

    Both times we did that we were told that there was no toplessness going on at Breathless, which to me was a bad sign. It is of course allowed, and of course people have gone topless there, but still... that's a crapshoot and you could guarantee a good time of the type you are looking for at TTR.

    The current bad reviews, my own stuff included, are attempting to explain (for the veteran, old-timers who've been going to Temptation from back when it was Blue Bay Getaway) the "changes" to expect when they get down there. Note: We all went, and we all had a good time of exactly the type you wrote you are looking for, it's just that the construction has some issues, the staff has some growing pains, and the shiny new boot doesn't fit quite as nicely as the old, nearly worn-through boot did - if that metaphor strikes a chord with you.

    IT's still a great party place, it's still a sexy good time, and the sexual undercurrent is still lively and strong as ever.

    Thanks for the replies.
    I would agree that TTR would be the ultimate solution to guarantee the party atmosphere/sexual vibe. We have definitely experienced it at other resorts. It might be asking too much, but we would like a little bit of the best of both worlds. Some of our best experiences have been at "vanilla" resorts cutting loose with some of the "naughty" couples looking for fun.

    We have heard/read some good reports about Breathless that sound promising, but like all forums and websites, it's always tough to tell if what you're reading is one person's exaggerated fever dream or something that is an actual representation of what will go on if we book a trip.

    More input is always helpful! We realize this is a TTR-centric forum, so information on Breathless isn't as plentiful. And of course the experience at each resort varies from week to week. If any more couples have experiences to add that would be great. And if there are any semi-official travel groups/weeks at Breathless (like there are at Hedo/Desire/TTR) those would be nice to hear about as well.
    Glad Stacia and John have added their first hand poll results. I'm hoping Stacia has signed up as a census worker in our neighborhood!

    I have posted a couple reviews of breathless rc from two past trips. It is a 5 Star great resort but the fun is really controlled by the crowd. Sometimes not much different than secrets/excellence...other times was pretty wild with plenty of naked boobs, thongs, and some other body parts flashing...

    On our first trip the large jacuzzi was open 24 hrs. Lots of late night fun after leaving the disco. Now if you want to swim after 7 you have to get a swim out room (ask for building 5 ... it’s in the topless area).

    We really like BRC but we have already stayed there close to 25 days already but will prob try TTR this June before we are too old.

    Thanks all for the continued replies.
    Maybe others can add what the "temperature" was like when they visited Breathless.
    I guess you could say we're looking for a Goldilocks trip, not too hot (TTR), not too cold (Secrets).

    we been to Breathless in Montego Bay so can only comment on the atmosphere they are trying to sell as a brand. Breathless focus on being a music center scene, their techno music gets very old very quick. We go on party vacation to mingle and meet new people Temptation is the only place we found so far where most talk and mingle with most.

    It will be our first time to a Breathless Resort. We booked and Exhale room not sure if its worth it or not. Thought that way if it got to old at the techno side we could move to the quiet part. Will see how it goes. very excited though. Its been three years since we were in Mexico last. cant wait til Feb 16

    The exhale is the boring/vanilla side. We were offered a free upgrade to exhale our 2nd trip and quickly turned it down. Better money spent getting a swim out room or ocean front in building 4 or 5. The rooms are soundproofed pretty good. If you want to get away from the techno/topless pool during the day you can go to the center activities pool that is fairly benign and large. The outside dance music usually dies down by 7 pm.

    Either way you should have a blast! It’s a great resort!

    Definitely nice to know which rooms to book.
    Does location of the room make a lot of difference? Is Exhale section same type of room in different location or is it an upgraded room as well?
    It's always tough to judge rooms from pictures on a website at any rate.

    The resort is divided into three sections and each have a pool. The southern is all exhale with their own restaurant. The middle is the energy/activities area where most of the resort daytime vanilla games go on.... pretty chill.The north is the topless area with a pool, elevated dance stage, and huge jacuzzi. The north pool has the foam parties twice a week. Chek it out on google earth or the breathless website. We always stay in building 5 which is between the topless pool and the activities pool and get an oceanfront suite. The beach is also much better at the north end of the resort. And if you are feeling it ... the desires beach is right there you can go over to and get spicy.

    Mexico24 has hit the head on the nail with their descriptions. When we were there in November we had a blast. There were quite a few woman topless and quite a few woman in thongs as well. It seemed like there were mostly couples at the resort with a few exceptions of single woman groups and a small group of single males. Do not waste your money on the exhale side...this is the side for the older vanilla people stay. What is sad is that area was entirely dead when we were there, maybe 10 people out during the day on that entire exhale area. We stayed in the very north building with a swim-out room. We are booking another swim-out room on that building in June when we go again. Swim-out rooms are great when getting back from the disco at 2 am!

    Thanks Wisconsin for adding insight.
    Couple of follow up points, how is the evening energy level. Is the Disco jumping or does everyone disappear at sunset? Your 2am comment is encouraging. Closing pools and hot tubs at night is disappointing. Wish that would change.
    What's the evening attire like for ladies? Anybody wearing clubwear or will cleavage and poky nipples be met with disapproving scowls?

    how does that work?.....every time we've been to Desire or Breathless the security at Desire made sure no outsiders used their beach for anything more than a walkway

    No issues at all with security. Some couples were going back and forth with friends staying at each resort. All beaches in Mexico are open to the public and there are no private beaches. We found that if you stopped and said hi to someone it went pretty smooth. It was low key for sure and no gawking....just a friendly “hi”and a dip in the ocean with no inhibitions.

    I was kind of worried tha security would keep is moving but we stopped and talked with a desires couple and ended up in the ocean there for a while. We were discrete but not hiding our actions for sure. I suppose if a group from outside would come over and be intrusive it would be a way different story.

    Fact is after we were there we tried to cancel out last 4 days at breathless and move to desires because we felt like we fit in but desires was fully booked a couple of the nights.

    Didn’t think we would be offending any desires patrons but maybe we did. I apologize if we did.

    As for cleavage and nippley dresses / tops at breathless for dinner or the disco. K has abandoned her resort dresses and now only brings Yandy. Very low cleavage and/or no bra. No problem. Other women definitely brought out their more risqué clothes also. The vanilla crowd there disappears early for sure.

    The disco went well into the night and was full with people every night. As for attire...there were all types. The group we were with was mostly wearing very short dress or skirts and showing lots of cleavage...no issues at all at dinner or the disco dressed that way. I do not think many woman at the disco were wearing bras or panties for that matter.

    WJimmy and M24, sounds like the dress code at night is about what we hoped. Need to have a few people out there pushing the sexy a bit. It's also good to hear the disco has a crowd at night. Some reviews seemed to indicate things shut down post dinner. Too bad the pools aren't open but at least there's an active crowd working the night shift.
    Didn't want to bring the sexy clothes unless there would be at least a few people who would appreciate it. Sounds like the right place to wear things that could shock the PTA crowd, but maybe short of the Hedonism - leather bustier with nipple chain leash- outfit.
