    Bachelorette Trip!!!

    We had a blast at Breathless, Punta Cana with a group of 11 ladies (for a bachelorette party) from 03-06Oct2019. From the moment we arrived, the hotel staff was very accommodating and quick to get us checked-in. Thanks to the Entertainment Team and hotel staff for a great time! Our full review and experience: Rooms/Mini Bar/Internet/Safe Box: - The Allure Jr. Suite rooms were very nice and clean. The beds/pillows were very comfortable! Some of the girls in our group didn’t have towels in their bathrooms when we arrived, but were quickly delivered after calling the front desk. - The rooms did not smell humid because the temperature was kept at a cool temperature. Damp-rid helps if you don’t want to keep your room cold (bring it in a checked-in suitcase). All rooms have ceiling fans. - The mini bar is stocked with water, sodas, and beer (Presidente/Dos Equis). No hard liquor in the room. This was odd for an all-inclusive, but was nice to have plenty of cold water bottles. - The internet was strong in the rooms and beach. A bit shotty by the plaza and restaurants. - The safe box in one of the rooms did not work. The front desk was called and was fixed within 20mins. - Cons: One night after coming back from the nightclub, we noticed that housekeeping had been in our room to make the beds for us at night. They left two Hershey kisses and turned the TV on. One of the girls in our group did not have a roommate and was a bit spooked by this because the rooms had already been cleaned and no one was expected. Perhaps a sign should be placed in the rooms to inform guests that this is included. Beach/Pools/Nightclub: - The beach and pools are beautiful and well maintained on a daily basis. Plenty of pool and beach space. The pool party ended around 11pm, but people stayed and enjoyed their drinks after hours. No one was kicked out, that we noticed. - There is a security guard on the beach during the day to make sure the guests are safe & not being bothered by the vendors. - The nightclub was fun on the first night we were there (Thursday). It gets busy around 11pm and closes at 3am. There are two bars, one inside and one in the patio area. There are a lot of places to sit around the balcony (couches/cocktail tables). - Cons: We thought there would be more of a variety of music by the beach, pool, and nightclub. Dominican music (merengue, bachata, salsa) rather than hip-hop, R&B, and techno. E-Team/Hotel Staff/Security: - The Entertainment Team was amazing!!! They treated us more like family than guests. They got everyone to participate in the fun activities they had at the pool (blackout party, champagne spray party, and Oktoberfest) and on the beach (water aerobics, volleyball, salsa/merengue lessons). Special thanks to Scooby, Pikachu, Mr. Brown, and El Maestro (the MC). They were all very charming and VERY respectful. - We couldn’t forget our server on the beach, Ricardo. WOW, he truly went above and beyond to make sure we had drinks in our hands at all times!!! On our last day, he came in extra early to make sure we had a bottle of champagne to toast with. - During the day, some of the girls in our group walked a few steps to Tropical Treasure for a massage and since it was off- property, they each had to sign a waiver stating that they would be away for an hour. The guard made sure they were checked back-in upon their return. Needless to say, we all felt very safe with all the security guards and cameras around the property! - The hotel can be contacted in advance if you want a Birthday or Honeymoon sign on the door, champagne, etc. This was a great surprise! Restaurants: There is access to some of the Xhale lounges, pools, and restaurants. - Coquette (French Cuisine) was the group’s favorite of all! - Spoon (Buffett) – open for breakfast and lunch only. Endless choices. - The Strip Grill (Buffet) – upon request, the chef made steak for us. The fish was amazing. - Spumante (Italian) – open for dinner only. All dishes were delicious. - Silk City (Japanese) – open for dinner only with reservations. Great food! - Twist and Squeeze (Bar) – the bartenders are very friendly and make great drinks. - Cons: Due to lack of communication and low peak season, half of the restaurants were closed and we were not allowed to book in advance (at any restaurant). We had one night where we had to sit at different tables, but other than that, they were very accommodating. The hotel staff is wonderful and they work very hard to make sure you enjoy your stay. Please make sure to tip them well. Thank you Breathless for a great time!!!

    Great Trip!

    We had a great time at Breathless during our 6 day stay. Despite it being hurricane season, we didn't have one rainy day. We stayed in one of the swim-up suites and can't recommend those enough. The food was good and the service was excellent. The only dings on this otherwise excellent resort would be that the food at the restaurants tended to be a bit overcooked (though still tasty), there was a little bit of mold on the swim-up pool, and a lack of an outlet on one side of the bed. A shout out to the nice and helpful staff, especially Murphi (ask for his sangria shots), Angel, Ricardo, and Antonio.

    While the rooms are very dated, they are still very nice! I'm staying in the Xhale Club Master Suite for 6 nights...still here as I write this review. It's been quite because this is the off season, but I love that. The upgraded premium alchohol that comes with the Xhale club is great! I'd say if you are on the fence about the upgrade to Xhale Club, go with Xhale Club! You will absolutely appreciate the upgraded amenities, room, service, and personal butler! Jose has been truly awesome! His level of service has exceeded our expectations! Jose offered and suggested activities, items, we were not aware of. He took time to come find us serval times per day to ensures our needs were met! I'm so happy I have Jose!

    This was our first all inclusive experience and it was incredible. The food and drink was great. Pools were awesome and the beaches are clean and beautiful. Emilio from the Xhale lounge made the experience even better by catering to our every need.
