This whole trip was beyond perfect!
Our butler, Joel, was amazing! He was always checking in with us and made sure we didn’t need anything. He was helpful with getting our reservations for the hibachi dinner, and anything we needed!
The bartenders at the freestyle bar - Carlos and Carlos P - made the best drinks and were so much fun!
The singing and dancing, the daily activities made the trip good!
Our experience overall was a 10/10 and we will definitely be coming back!!
Xhale Club concierge, Elis is awesome!!
Sep 28, 2023
We are Xhale Club members, and our concierge "Elis" made us feel like royalty. All my requests made to Elis was granted, and she is an example of how the employees at Breathless are. The staff are cheerful and accommodating to all you needs. Examples of my granted requests were: asking for 5 extra hangers, my mini fridge to be filled with Light beer, and to have a bottle of white wine with cork off for 5 evenings. It was also our anniversary, and Elis surprised us with rose petals showered on our bed and hot tub, a basket of fruit, and a bottle of champagne.
More than expected

Starting with arrival, the staff was phenomenal. Everyone was kind and polite and made you feel at home. We were greeted by Ana and she was very helpful and pleasant. Hands down the individual that was the most helpful, Polite and made sure we had no questions was Emilio our Butler. He gives us daily activities updates and makes face to face contact always with a smile. I give the resort 5 stars overall. I have posted some pictures and will continue to show off the amazing spot.
Emilio, our host, made our experience special. Here is an honest Review.
Sep 25, 2023
Firstly, Emilio our host, made this experience special. From the start, he asked specific questions to help elevate our experience. We received a text message every morning with a list of the days activities to help organize our day. We had dinner reservations made for us, and some friends we made, at one of the restaurants. He always greeted us with a warm smile when we saw him around and was overly communicative with our every need.
To be fair, it looks like the resort was undergoing a remodel. The rooms were dated and had surface level imperfections. There was some insect activity, we live in FL so we know how impossible it is to be bug free in a tropical climate, so it didn't bother us too much- but it may bother some others. The bed was extremely comfortable and cleaning crew did a great job of restocking. Room Service was also prompt and available.
Luckily Breathless allows you access to Dreams property. Breathless property was very outdated and bland. If you've never been to an all-inclusive you'll probably be impressed... By Vacation Club standards this missed the mark. The positives though- Entertainment was good, Activities were plentiful and the staff was super friendly. However, Dreams resort blew breathless out of the water- But you get access to Dreams while staying on Breathless property.
This is where they lost us. Food was cruise line quality and alcohol was bottom shelf- Although both were plentiful. The one big tip is find the restaurants that cook the food fresh- Egg station at the buffet, Blue Ocean Steak House and the Hibachi Grill. Pro Tip- Bring small bills and tip your bartenders- A few bucks goes a long way.
We stayed at Secrets Akumal in Mexico and maybe they set the bar very high for this Resort Company. Breathless Punta Cana just fell short to what we expected after our Secrets stay. HOWEVER, we still had a great time and the staff made our stay special!
My first time and the experience didn't disappoint. There was always something going on all the time. Great experience

The stay was excellent! The staff and the workers made my stay one I would love to do again. Looky and his group made the entertainment the greatest. Riki was very good and teaching the dance lessons.
