To give you a reference point for my opinions, my husband & I are avid travellers of the Caribbean. Annually, we visit 2 or 3 different AI vacation destinations.
Ugh…arriving at PUJ airport is similar to the violation you endure in Cancun & various others time-share laden areas. As always, don’t stop for hecklers, just head out to your transportation.
Arriving at Breathless ~3, our check-in was seamless. Sign a few items then we were brought by golf cart straight to our room, within less than 20 minutes of arrival.
Rooms- Great brand new resort, thus room was lovely. Bed extremely comfortable. Very large rainforest shower, whirl pool tub on the balcony, stocked bar fridge – life is good!! Cleaning staff was fabulous.
Pools were magnificent & plentiful. Several small lazy river-style pools & a few larger pools. 2 Swim-up bars, one for the rowdy folks and one for the more subdued guests.
Food - My husband is quiet particular when it comes to food but was pleased with the Strip Grill for dinner. We also tried the French restaurant which was good as well. We did not try the others. Surprisingly, the buffet was generally our best bet for dinner. There was a meat carving station, a grilling area & pasta chef…thus if you cannot find something there, then there is probably no satisfying you.
I have been to several brand new resorts openings (of the same rating) & by far Breathless surpasses them all.
Staff is Magnifico! Names we recall, Maria in the After Dark bar & Igor at Deep Swim Up bar. Having said that everyone we encountered was great.
Nightly entertainment was very good. We also used the tennis courts a couple of mornings, very nice too.
Summary, Resort is glorious, staff is fabulous, setting very nice (slight immature vegetation), beach is wonderful and food is quite good for an AI. What are you waiting for – enjoy life today, as you are not guaranteed tomorrow!!
