Breathless Punta Cana

We had such a wonderful time staying at the Breathless Resort in Punta Cana! 

When we were looking for a spot for our wedding week we specifically wanted a resort that had a lot of restaurants and lots to do!  Every night they had shows and we ate some lots of really good food! I do think it's pretty ironic that while restaurants were really important to me when we were initially looking, we ended up eating the same foods over and over :) The French restaurant Coquette was amazing! We actually ate there three times (once was for our weddings reception) and of course I ate the same meal each time! One of the really awesome things about Breathless is that we had access to Now Onyx which we could walk to right next door. It's a family resort and they also has some really great restaurants! We ate at their steak house, Blue Water and their Italian restaurant, Capers (the gnocchi here was amazing and quite possibly the best thing I ate all week!)

The night life was super fun. One night they had trapeze artists and fire dancers and they were juggling with knives.  Another night we were dancing with men on stilts! I was amazed that the same entertainment team had so many different talents that they unveiled over the week! We had a white party on the beach one night and a black light foam party in the pool another (side note: it's very hard to dance in the sand!!) The night of our wedding there was a Great Gatsby party and we got to dance on top of the pool :) 

The resort has just as much to do during the day as well.  Every morning they had water aerobics in the pool and sand volleyball.  While we spent the majority of out time by the pool there was lots to do on the beach if that's the type of vacation you are looking for.  I think it would be a great resort to have a bachelor or bachelorette party and overall it was a pretty amazing place for a wedding week!!  

The grounds here are so well maintained! A few days we did lay by the pool to the sound of weed eaters, but I guess thats the price you pay for beautiful landscaping (and 10 days on vacation, I mean they have to cut the grass at some point!!) 

The hibachi dinner was reservation only and because of our party size we didn't get a table until 9pm!   You could eat at the sit down part of the restaurant without a reservation but it was a different menu.  The reservation might have been late but it was totally worth it and it was some of the best hibachi ever!

This was our last dinner before we had to go home.  At first all the portions seemed so small but it turns out they always filled us right up! Plus, with an appetizer, bread, main course and dessert you need them to be smaller to enjoy all the food!

I stole this photo from Kristina's snap chat :) We were so exhausted by the time this photo was taken. Relaxing by the pool all day is very tiring work!

Thanks so much for reading! If there is anything else you want to know about this resort let me know in the comments! :)
