So sorry for my delayed response. We had an AMAZING time on our trip. Having not been to the Dominican I was very impressed with the beaches. They were beautiful. The staff and accommodations at Breathless were outstanding. We really enjoyed the themed parties each evening. We also enjoyed the afternoon party at the pool each day at 3:30 p.m. But not to worry for those who would like a little quiet time…there are some great spots on the beach to sink into a chair and read a good book. The food was good for being an all inclusive. The Japanese steak house restaurant was by far our favorite.
We did take an excursion to go snorkeling on a Catamaran Tour through Hispaniola Aquatic Adventures. It included awesome snorkeling, great seafood meal and fun drinks. They picked us up at the resort and we had a 4 hour cruise…then returned us back to enjoy our evening at the resort.
All in all…we had a GREAT trip. I would definitely recommend the resort and would go back in a heart beat! Thanks so much!!
The trip was fabulous! There was plenty to do at the resort. We would spend the morning/early afternoon on the beach. Never had an issue getting six chairs for all of use. Drinks were never empty. Around 3:30 we would go to the main pool where they had games. Not a ton of dinner options. Wilson always had to order 2-3 dinners to get full. 🙂
The rooms were very nice. They had a huge Happy Birthday banner on my door and a balloons and a cake in the room upon our arrival. The beds were VERY comfortable!
They were very pushy with sales and upgrades. When we checked in they said we had to come down for “meeting” the next day at 9 to get our departure information. We did not do this, but got the info the day before we left just fine.
They have an Exhale Club upgrade which we did not do. From what we saw, we didn’t see a huge benefit from that upgrade, unless you wanted a private pool away from everyone else.
We went on one excursion. It was a boat cruise with Hispaniola aquatic Adventures. I have been on a lot of “booze cruises”, and this one was by far the best. Great snorkeling, great drinks, great music. Went to a private beach where we had coconut drinks. Then the grilled lobster, shrimp, mahi-mahi and veggies for dinner. $99 per person for 4 hours.
I would definitely go back to DR, but maybe in 5 years. There is just nothing there outside of your resort. Hoping there tourism will pick up and that will change. Great people and they love some Kansas City Royals!
