You have the alternative of picking a king size bed or two double beds, balcony or terrace with a hot tub, and the view which pretty much determines how much you are going to pay for the room depending if is ocean ($233 pp), pool ($204 pp), tropical garden ($194 pp) or swim-up ($223.50 pp). Rates may vary according to the season.

The Xhale Club Suites will be waiting for you if you want to take it up a notch and enjoy the highest level of luxury the place has to offer.

First, is the Xhale Club Presidential Suite (which is the best-possible accommodation available) with 2686 square feet of space, comfy bedroom with king size bed, oceanfront view, exclusive benefits of the Xhale Club, extra bathroom for the guests, dining room, well-equipped kitchen, hot tub in a large terrace, comfortable living room and spacious bathroom with double sinks, hot tub and walk-in closet ($971 pp).

Depending on which one you choose you will get the desired view (for example, pool view means you get will see the pool!). The swim-up means you will have direct access to the pool (just in case you were wondering). Rates may vary according to the season.

Overall, the beds are supposed to be comfortable which ensures a good night sleep (mandatory for a good vacation). 

If you pick the ground floor, you can get your own swimming pool (which is awesome) on the other hand, getting a room on the upper floors has the benefit of extra privacy whenever you want to use the hot tub in the balcony (which is hard to get on the ground level). The toilet area could use a little more ventilation since the fan doesn’t seem to have that much power.

Pool and Beach

Another essential element for a wonderful relaxing vacation at the Breathless Punta Cana Resort and Spa is astonishing swimming pools. You can find 8 swimming pools scattered through the hotel. There is a larger one, one bi-level, four that are quiet and the two exclusive for Xhale club members. In addition, you can loosen up in one of the four whirlpools available to all guests.

  • The bigger pool is ideal for those that want to have a relaxing time, while enjoying their favorite drink. It has a swim-up bar and it doesn’t get very crowded (which means getting a drink is not a hassle).
  • The second one is something different. It is the place to go when you want to have some serious fun. Most games and entertainment take place here. The upbeat music and the entertainment team will make sure you have a blast. The only problem is it has a smaller swim-up bar that gets very cramped.
  • If your only goal is to get a sunbath and get quite time, the remaining pools can do the trick. They are far from the party pool, and you can ease by letting your worries melt away.

The pools are open most of the time allowing you to enjoy them whenever you feel like it. Loungers are easy to get most of the times. If you want one near the party pool, you better get up early (6:00am) as it can get pretty busy. The farther you are from the party pool the easier the chair game becomes. Another plus of the hotel is getting pool towels without having to use the key.

The white sandy beach is marvelous. You can find many chairs without shade (great for sunbathers) and with shade (if you don’t want to get toasted). The staff does their best to keep the seaweed away from the shore. One thing you need to remember is not to stay away from your chair too long as the staff will take your towel if they think no one has been there for a good while.


The Breathless resort in Punta Cana caters to a vast number of palates. Lebanese, Italian, French, international, grilled, Asian and Latin cuisine are just some the alternatives you can pick from on a daily basis.

  • The first place you should be familiar with is the Spoon buffet. It offers international meals for breakfast and lunch. The dress code appropriate for this restaurant is casual which includes long shorts, Bermudas, Capri pants, sandals, sneakers and tennis shoes. Men must wear shirts with sleeves and women need to wear a bathing suit wrap.
  • Next, is the Barefoot Grill offering all kinds of tasty grilled meats. Burgers, fries, hot dogs and pizza are some of the choices ready for you at any time. If you prefer something else for lunch, the Spoon buffet will surely come to your rescue. It is open for lunch, and you can eat there while wearing a bathing suit, as the dress code is casual.

  • Finally, Coquette the French restaurant is where you need to go to partake some of the finest delicacies you have ever tasted. Don’t forget to try the Creme Brule as it is simply scrumptious. The dress code is formal and is open during dinner.

In general, the house wine is not that great, so if you are picky with your wine you will have to get a $30 or more bottle.

You can always take the wine with you in case you don’t finish it (you better take advantage of every penny you spend). One interesting fact about the restaurants at the breathless resort in Punta Cana is that you don’t need reservations to dine at them (which is awesome). The only exception is the Silk City where the chef prepares the food in front of you.

Couples looking for a romantic evening have the choice of a private dinner at the beach (of course, it will cost you some money). I can’t forget to mention the lobster party taking place one night at the beach, where you can eat endless lobster for $59. Overeating happens a lot, be careful don’t overdo it.


As one of the magnificent all-inclusive resorts in Punta Cana, the Breathless has plenty to offer for those seeking a lively atmosphere. You can begin by taking a refreshing swim in any of the 8 swimming pools across the hotel. Drinks are not a problem with 9 bars where you can get local and premium liquor. The Sports Bar and Nightclub (which is awesome for dancing and has an outdoor area), the Showstopper, Deep swim-up bar, Foam, Lush, Wink, THE bar and the Freestyle Swim and Entertainment zone swim-up bar are more than enough to be your endless supply of tasty drinks (no vacation is complete without good spirits).

If you love staying in shape, the fitness center at the Breathless Punta Cana resort will have everything necessary for your daily work out. 

Dance classes, Spanish Classes, pool tables, aerobics, live entertainment with a dj at one of the pools are just a few of the activities you can do, while staying at the Punta Cana Breathless resort. The E-team does an incredible job animating everybody at the pool during the day with the foam party and at night with their well-rehearsed activities.

Sports enthusiasts have something for them as well at the resort. 

Tennis, paddle ball and beach volleyball will keep your adrenaline pumping. If you enjoy the excitement of water sports kayaking, windsurfing, sailing, snorkeling, kite surfing and even scuba diving are going to make your day. Golfing in Punta Cana is the experience of a lifetime and lucky for you, there are more than enough courses nearby the resort. It doesn’t matter if you want to scuba dive and explore the waters of Punta Cana or fish to catch a record sized marlin, the breathless hotel offer endless possibilities.

The spa is something beyond comparison that is something you would expect from one of the Punta Cana luxury resorts. 

Swedish, hot stones, couples, and moon massages are just a few of the treatments you will receive at this world class Spa. Facials, manicures, and pedicures are also ideal to pamper you with the degree of leisure you deserve.

Some excursions like the buggy are lots of fun and worth every penny. 

Visit the hotel lobby to get a list of all the possible excursions you can enjoy. Lot of night shows available like the circus that is quite entertaining.

Thinking about a destination honeymoon?

One more thing, bring your sunscreen. You do not want to choose between being roasted or pay $28 for a bottle!
