    Moldy rooms and extra charges

    This hotel is nothing close to a 5 star hotel. When I first entered my ocean view room I was hit with a mold smell that never went away. There is a reason the put an incense in every room. The room was damp the entire time and not even close to what I would consider an ocean view. Definitely not worth the extra cost for an ocean view. I stayed in the allure ocean view and it was very loud from 12-2:30am every day. Internet is very spotty and you constantly get kicked off. At check out, they charged me $35 for a hookah I didn’t even order. I don’t smoke!!!! I asked to see the paper I signed. It clearly was not my signature but they wouldn’t let me leave without paying for it. Also, pay for your cab at the airport. This place is a complete ripoff for that as well. Charged me $43 to go one way back when from the airport it was only $30. Definitely not worth the price they charge for this hotel.

    Most Amazing Honeymoon because of one person.

    We haven’t even left yet but I have to take the time to review this amazing resort. My husband and I have been to both Breathless Punta Cana and this resort. In our opinion the food and service are far more superior at this resort. We have been here 7 out of 9 days. We spend most of each day at the Energy Pool. The first day a kind server came up to us and introduced himself, and welcomed us to the resort, from that day forward he made our trip absolutely unforgettable. Samuel has made us feel like royalty and always ensured we sat where we wanted and drank what we wanted. Today he brought us our drinks in tropical fruit which was such a lovely surprise. All the waiters and staff here seem amazing but I can truly say that Samuel has consistently ensured this honeymoon exceeded our expectations. There is always something going on at the party pool and the E Team, who are phenomenal, tries their best to engage with everyone and makes sure everyone has a great time. Room service has always prompt and delicious. We have enjoyed our food at all the restaurants. I couldn’t ask for a better vacation with my Husband. Thank you everyone at Breathless and especially Samuel for an outstanding vacation.

    Both positives and negatives

    My husband an I stayed at Breathless11/14-11/19. This is our second time at this resort. The first time was back in 2017 I’ll start with the positives: The staff is by far the best part of this resort. From the E-Team making an effort to personally get to know you (big shout out to Miguel,Sandra and Geo!!). To the servers at Spoon (Esther ) with a smile every morning. To the staff by the pool (Samuel) and Willie from the Champagne pool party keeping our glasses full. The food was pretty good in general Now for the bad: when I make a reservation and I book a room that’s the room I want. When you tell me your giving me an upgrade to a swim out and I say no I want the room I booked. Just apologize and tell me you overbooked. Don’t keep insisting it’s an upgrade if I tell you no thank you it’s not. So we got “upgraded “ to a swim out. The water is so cold you can’t put your big toe inside and there were enough mosquitoes out on the patio to suck you dry in a minute. Also I’m not sure the point of the preferred club if they don’t help you with anything?? Like a restaurant reservation at Silk City?? Gee check with the restaurant. Thanks. My money at work I guess. As far as the sewer/sewage smell. At first we didn’t notice any. By the second day it was almost everywhere. When you walk in the restaurants and it’s a punch in the face it is rather off putting Would we come back?? I don’t know. If the price is right?? It’s a good time with a good amount of negatives as well

    Fun, Exciting, and Relaxing Week on the Beach!

    We just got back from from a 7 night stay at Breathless in an Allure junior suite ocean view, which was more than adequate for my husband and I. We stayed from November 6 - November 13, 2019. Everyday we were met with fantastic service from a great staff who quickly made personal efforts to get to know us. A special shout out to a few of our favorite event staff: DANIEL, John, Miguel, Sandra, and Lisa. They were all so much fun, came and hung out with us everyday, and always made sure we were having a good time. When we decided to hangout on the beach we received outstanding service from Gabriela, Hugo, and Charlie Boy. Service from all Bars/bartenders was also great, despite the long wait at times due to so many people. Alan and Aaron at the Seaside Bar greeted us warmly everyday. Coffee service at the Nook was always quick and laid back. Each morning Pascal and his crew (William and Hugo) held a table for us at The Spoon for the breakfast buffet. Pascal always greeted us with an energetic welcome and delicious mimosas. Activities/Entertainment: The activities on the beach will keep you entertained when your not relaxing or off on an excursion (Sand Volleyball was a BLAST!). The atmosphere of the resort is perfect if you want a blend of party and relaxation. The dancers at the Xcelerate pool were exciting to watch, and the huge Jacuzzi pool was the perfect afternoon spot to relax and enjoy the music and entertainment. Restaurants/Food: The food was decent at each restaurant, no major complaints, but sometimes dinner took a little longer than we had hoped for. Bites was great for lunch, Croquette (French) was very good but took about 2.5 hours total over dinner. Our favorite dinner place was Spumante (Italian), but Picante (Mexican) and Silk City (Asian Cuisine) came in with a close second. Night Life: Wink was the place to be each evening where they always had a DJ, live music, artists, or even theme nights! We went to the night club one of the nights (After Dark) and it was a lot of fun! The Beach/Ocean: The only negative we experienced during our stay was that the ocean itself was not very clear during our time there, but the beach was very clean and we always found a spot to sit and relax. If you like to get in the ocean we would recommend wearing water shoes because it was a little rocky. Overall, this resort was a lot of fun, very clean, and had the friendliest staff! We highly recommend this to anyone who likes to have a good time, be entertained, and meet some new friends along the way!

    Amazing Quick Getaway Girls Trip

    This is the second Breathless Resort I’ve visited and I must say each one is AMAZING! I love this chain because they really do care about your comfort and will go above and beyond for whatever you need. I’d like to thank all the staff for making my short trip feel way longer but specifically Miguel Cruz, Esther and Manuel from Spoon, Alejandro + Urbano from the Xhale Pool area and Hermilo who helped us out by the Allure pool when we needed him most. It was definitely worth the price tag for everything that is included along with the great staff. I can’t wait to revisit this place soon! Thanks again Breathless!
