input...If you were to choose...BREATHLESS or Riu Republica

both are adults only and falling into the same price range...going by Apples ratings Breathless is a 6 golden and Riu Republica is a 5 golden.

We love better booze (not the cheapie stuff) , love a great beach, getting to hang out and chill in the water a huge bonus, and a variety of food as one of us (me) LOL is picky....

anyone...input? thank you in advance...

we have done Riu Bavaro, Riu Bambu, Riu Taino, Occidential , and the LTI in the past....

If they are in the same price range go for Breathless , Both are great Adults only resorts but Breathless is a notch above the Republia

thanks. Yes. Literally, a $10.00 difference. I have used the Riu's before so kinda know what to expect there but have never done or even heard much about Breathless.

Thanks again!

Yes beach much wider and water typically much calmer. beautiful beach. There are some palm trees closer to the resort/pools. Breathless beach is not as wide and sloped to the water. Pretty wavy on most days.

I prefer the resort of Breathless, but I would prefer the beach of the Republica. If there was only a way to combine the two, lol.

Bomberro...agree...I would kinda like to try a new chain and was leaning on Breathless...but then the better beach comment. Also...according to my travel agent friend her co-worker went to Breathless in PC and hated it??...she's about my age but said it was pretty risqué?? and that the food was horrible...

uggg….torn!
