Breathless Punta Cana Resort & Spa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
An amazing place for all adult travellers and couples looking for a fun getaway in Punta Cana. The Breathless is an amazing luxury resort that possesses some of the most spectacular views in the DR. If you can, book the Xhale Club as the location offers some of the best views of the beach. The resort grounds are lush, well-maintained and clean. This also includes the beach as you can walk for miles in each direction. They have great daily and nightly entertainment. The staff are pleasant and attentive and always looking to make sure you're having a good time. You might even spot a floating Sangria Bar in the pool! There are plenty of incredible food options including 24 hour room service.
When my mom and I arrived we were underwhelmed with our reception and the lack of service. We arrived at our room to mildew and the ceiling dripping from the a.c./humidity combo which made it difficult to breathe. Our phone didn't work when we tried to find out where our luggage was. 20 minutes later it arrived and we put our swimsuits on and went to check out the rest of the resort. The lunch on the beach was super unappetizing and after a day of traveling we felt exasperated. Looking to leave and switch resorts, Carolina (guest services) stepped in and asked us for a chance to prove what a wonderful resort Breathless is. Once she switched our room, that instantly made us feel more at ease. It was a standard hotel room, a reprise from heat and what we expected upon arrival but what is considered an 'upgrade'. From there, our experience only got better. The breakfast buffet is amazing! Everything is delicious and there are so many options. The dinner buffet is delicious as well and excellent if you don't want to spend a lot of time at dinner. However, the food at the restaurants is worth the wait! The French restaurant was easily our favorite and had the best service!The E Team (entertainment staff) work tirelessly day and night to ensure a fun trip. There are beach games in the morning and some pool activities. (Participation depends on who happens to be at the resort, so every day is different). Some nights there are shows, which are 'low budget' but still entertaining and then dance parties afterwards. Lots of fun, but super sweaty with the humidity. The beach party and the foam party are a great time! The Joker, Caramelo, and Shake among many other E team members did an incredible job at keeping the level of fun up!The gym is clean and has all the amenities of a regular gym. The coffee shop was a favorite go to spot every day as well. The drinks had negligible alcohol in them, unless you upgrade, which allows you to get drinks from an indoor bar. Hence why many stick to beer, but the frozen drinks did taste delicious even if they couldn't get you buzzed.
We arrived in Punta Cana on September 2nd for our Anniversary. I chose Breathless because it was adults only, it looked fun and romantic! Most of our vacation was like a dream! Hurricane Irma was on the radar but it wasn't until 2-3 days into the trip that we discovered it was heading towards us. The entire crew at Breathless worked around the clock (literally) to prepare the resort, the accommodations and the food, while we were still being taken care of at the pool, the beach and the restaurants. Everything went without a single glitch! I have to give a special shout out to Nathaniel who helped us relax and have a great time in the midst of a potentially scary situation! The manager of the entire resort gave a heartwarming speech that let us know WE were their main focus... to keep us safe and comfortable. When everything is going smoothly its hard to tell what people are made of.... I would go back time and time again to this resort because of their dedication to us! Other very special people who I will not forget is "Joker" - thank you for our morning stretching poolside, dancing and entertaining! Robert Time - for going above and beyond. Mario and Saintony for the most excellent beach side service! I recommend this resort!
Visited this resort for 5 days and had a great time. First let me start off by saying that there are so many activities that go on daily so there's no time to get bored and the entertainment team is awsome. Second, the resort is beautiful. The staff really do a good job keeping the property nice and clean including the rooms. I originally booked a regular room but upgraded to the Xhale Club the next day. There were a few minor issues with the room but once I informed our butler Robert he took care of it. Robert was such a sweet guy and did everything he could to make our vacation enjoyable. If I every went back I would like to have Robert as my butler. Fourth, the only complaint I have is with the drinks and the food. One of the good things about upgrading to xhale was they have a separate loung where you are served top shelf liquor. I noticed a difference in the taste. The drinks in the areas outside of the Xhale lounge was horrible, except at the quiet pool where Christian is the bartender. Christian made excellent drinks. Fifth, the food was not the best. I've been to many resorts and had some of the best foods and a variety. At Breathless they have the same mediocre food every day. The best food is at Silk City, Spumante and the Coquette resturants. The Barefoot Grill which is near the beach has good food as well. Would I visit again? I definitely would but would only book an Xhale club room.
We stayed at AM resorts Secrets for our honeymoon and liked it so much we wanted to try another one of their hotels. We wanted to stay with the adults only so we choose Breathless. What is nice about AM resorts is they are usually close to their other hotels and you get use of their grounds as well.The demographic at this hotel was not what we expected and the casino was underwhelming compared to what the website looked like but overall it was good for the price. It is no Secrets but you get what you pay for. The upgrade to the preferred beach was very worth it as the other part of the beach was louder than we like. We probably would pick the hotel Now Onyx next door if we went back their Burger restaurant was our favorite. Definately do some excursions while you were there Scape Park is great!
Rooms were great. We got an upgrade on the 4th day. A few minor glitches were overcome by the great service provided by our Butleress Ms Elis. We will definitely return. Good food fun and drinks galore. Do the zip lining your. Awesome.
