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!!
