the night before, we were all ready for a relaxing last day in paradise, and Breathless Resort definitely provided it.
I went to Spoon Restaurant for breakfast, enjoying a cheese and mushroom omelet, a waffle with Nutella, and a plate full of tropical fruit.
We split up for lunch, for which I went back to Spoon for delicious pasta and more of that luscious fruit. I then headed to the big event – the Sunday Pool Party.
Breathless Punta Cana, but this one was extra special because it was the last with DJ Rhiannon. I had seen her before at a club in Atlantic City and I knew she could get the crowd going.
It seemed like most of the resort was at the pool. It was packed and a bit wild. Bubbles were in the pool and sangria was being poured (the swim-up bar was also open).
I stayed there for a bit and then met Matt and Sam back at the pool near our rooms. I joined them for cocktails and the swim up bar and we hung out with some people we had met previously who had come down for a wedding on the beach.
We toasted again to their engagement and the last night of our trip.
I started with a Caribbean Salad of pineapple, coconut, and cabbage. It was delicious, as was the meat and plantain in a banana leaf, and the beef stew with rice and peas.
I was really happy that, despite some bad dining experiences the first two nights, all of our meals at the end were great.
For my last morning in Punta Cana, I ordered the Breathless Breakfast from room service and had it served on my patio. I wasn’t going to miss one more chance to enjoy a meal and the blue water at the same time.
It was even better than last time, with fruit, watermelon juice, scrambled eggs, potatoes, corn pancakes, bacon, sausage, Danishes, croissants, and coffee.
It wasn’t long before the car came to take us to the airport. Sam, Matt, and I said goodbye to Punta Cana and each other, as we headed home are separate ways after a most memorable trip.
