“AMAZING HONEYMOON!!!”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

My husband and I just returned from our amazing honeymoon at Breathless Punta Cana (August 9-16). We have nothing but great things to say about our time at this beautiful resort. The staff, grounds, pools, drinks, food, beach, etc. exceeded our expectations and kept smiles on our faces the entire time. We have decided without a doubt that Breathless will be our vacation spot for years to come and are already planning to get back as soon as possible.

One of our favorite aspects of the resorts was its size and lay out – it’s not a mega resort – you can walk pretty much anywhere in under a couple of minutes. So it’s perfect for anyone with mobility issues. We had a swim up room and thoroughly made use and enjoyed that aspect – def the way to go!!

The staff are simply incredible and do everything within their power to ensure you have a great time while being treated like royalty. One of our first days on the beach, I went to get a drink and Carlos told me to go sit down, that we’re VIP’s and will be treated as such – now if that doesn’t make your day, I don’t know what will. We absolutely love Carlos, he continued to wait on us all week – before we could finish one drink, he was bringing us a fresh one. Jenny was another server who was just amazing. She works so unbelievably hard and always with a smile on her face. If she noticed we were outside of our swim up pool, she always came around to serve us. She was all over the place all the time! Denny at the lobby bar was outstanding too. Once he knew our favorite drink, he would place it before us without even having to order. These are just a couple examples of the fantastic staff members we encountered throughout our stay. We would love to give a special shout out to other staff members who made our trip special: Diesel (always singing, smiling, dancing), RAUL!!!, Gladys, Lenny, Dominigo, Basilo, Leonel, Lenin, Fairy, Eddie Murphy and Coca Cola Light. There are so many more that I haven’t named who bent over backwards all the time!

Entertainment – we loved the activities at the beach, by the pool, in addition to the shows every night. The E-team is awesome and does an amazing job making all activities and performances memorable. We really liked the foam party, gladiator at the pool, beach party night, mud bath, aerial performance, western night etc. We could go on and on.

The grounds are immaculate, so well taken care of. Looking around, it was quite evident you are staying at a five star resort. The pool areas were great, we especially loved having a swim up room.
The beach is beautiful. Please do not be discouraged by people’s reviews talking about coral. Yes, there is coral, however, there is more than plenty room to swim - I don’t understand how this could possibly be an issue for people. We loved the beach.

The food was great. We loved all the restaurants. We never had to wait more than a couple minutes to be seated. Great part is there is only one restaurant for which you need a reservation. I 'm Celiac, so I was concerned about what I could eat. At check-in I informed them of my needs (no gluten, oats, etc.). I was printed a letter in Spanish to present at meal time. The staff knew that there could be no cross contamination of the food as well. I was always shown what I could eat and/or was prepared a meal specifically for me. Doesn’t get any better than that. There was always something I could eat – and it was good!

Other great things: No bracelet! Beach towels smelled so good!

Highly recommend this resort to anyone. We fell in love with this place and cannot wait to go back!!

Room Tip: Swim up room is the way to go!

i went to this adults only resort with my sister two weeks ago.there is a spot for everybody's comfort zone.no kids so its really quiet.its all about fun, relaxation, eating drinking and more fun.the rooms, beach and pool area are all very clean. food is good except i wish they had more choices for people that don't eat beef or pork. the staff is very friendly and very accomodating. airport is about 30-40 minutes away. anything we needed ...no problem. the air conditioning was a little too high and we had to call them several times to adjust..there was never a complaint about it. the entertainment staff was unbelievable.the shows were fantastic. they are so talented and work so hard all day long. not only do they entertain at night, but they keep things going during the day at the pool with different activities. there is a gym and a spa.the club at night was great, except they seem to cater to the young crowd. they needed to play more salsa or at least mix the music.they kept playing the same type of music that seems to cater to the very young. i would visit breathless again without a doubt. this trip was truly surreal.

Room Tip: rooms closer to the beach and away from the pool are quieter.

Overall, our stay was fantastic! It is an adult resort so I expected a mix of people, and that there is; however, we felt that folks in our age range (early/mid forties) were often out of the loop, for lack of a better term. The resort seemed to cater more to 20-30 year olds. I loved the entertainment team (Pedro, Robert, Big Boy, Henry, Mr. Blue, Talent, Ronal, Diamonte, & Katerin) but why all of the yelling? I understand that is one way to motivate people, but I often found it jarring. Though there were inconsistencies with language barriers and service, overall, I have never encountered a more hard-working or energetic crew, from room service, to buffet service, to entertainment, all magnifico! I cam back to DR because I love the culture and the people, and we will return again.

Room Tip: 2nd/3rd floor rooms that do not face the pools are quieter.

I went to breathless with my daughter as a post law school graduation gift. From the moment you arrive you feel welcomed and the spoiling begins.

Pros:
The grounds and beaches were well manicured and just beautiful .
The food was mediocre with the exception of breakfast . The only thing I didn't like about breakfast is there was not an option of meat other than pork or beef, neither that I eat.
All of the rooms have a jacuzzi on the balcony and a nice balcony to sit on.
Everyday there is a table with a specialty drink of the day. Anguillo was great and always had a smiling face.
There is a wait staff that will bring your drinks when at the pool or on the beach.
The beds are very comfortable.
Each room is a suite with a separate sitting area
Raul is hilarious and will keep a smile on your face. He is just so happy and it reflects
The entertainment staff is great. There are always activities in which you can participate in
Thanks to Juan (bartender) Anguillo , Joel and Raul for making my experience better

Cons
The resort is in Uvero Alto which is about a 20 min drive from Punta Cana
The check in and checkout process was horrible, we waited 15 mins to check in and 30 mins to check out

I would definitely visit Breathless again

Room Tip: Rooms in building 4 on the 2nd floor overlook a pool and you can see the beach.we stayed in 4246

Breathless Resort Punta Cana, was surreal, beautiful,and exceeded all our expectations and created an experience that we will never forget. The best part of our trip was hanging out with the E team.. we enjoyed their high energy. It kept us entertained from morning till night. They are MAGNIFICO. Some of our favorites were DIESEL, BIG BOY, OSCAR, MICKEY MOUSE,and EDDIE MURPHY.. The fire show on the beach was incredible, and so was the circus performance. They carefully plan and delivered amazing shows and games , never a dull moment. The staff all around are warm, and attentive to your needs.. I recommend BREATHLESS RESORT, to all who are 18 and up.. thank you BREATHLESS RESORT for a relaxing, fun filled vacation.

Just spent 7 nights at Breathless and it was incredible. The grounds are super clean and the place looks incredible. The staff are amazing. Shout out to Raul who is "happy, happy, happy, all the time happy" The rooms were great. The food was good but not great. 5 star presentation with a 3-4 star taste. Drinks were VERY sugary and lacked alcohol but if you asked for more they would always oblige. By far the best of Breathless is the E Team. These men and women are simply incredible and really know hot to have a good time. The nightly entertainment was amazing. Magnifico to the E Team!!!!! Beach is nice but lots of kelp. The excursions were also great. Don't upgrade to xhale. It's a waste. We heard many complaints. The lobster dinner was also very complained about so save your money there

Room Tip: Our room had a pool view. It was fine

Overall the appearance of the resort was clean and updated. It's a relatively new property and there are some "Kinks" to work out like getting some well trained people who exhibit great customer service skills and able to communicate with you no matter what language you speak. I was really disappointed with food and service. Some bartenders at poolside bar were rude. Most of the housekeepers/maids did not speak English. I managed to make the best of my visit. If you're going to Punta Cana in the near future, I would definitely stay at Dreams Punta Cana. It's right next door to Breathless. The food and service there is excellente! You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Garden or close to beach. Pool view very noisy.
