    Worst service ever

    The service at Spumante was the worst. We paid a lot of money and the service was very bad. We were a group of black women who just didn't get good service at the dinners

    Great hotel but not for honeymoon

    We stayed at breathless in June and had a good 11 night break. The hotel is however very lively and is mainly full of groups rather than couples so we did feel a bit out of place on our honeymoon and we were a little bit disappointed we didn’t get that honeymoon experience we had been hoping for and sold by Virgin. That aside the hotel has good food, great bars and really good entertainment. Our favourite was the beach night and the Mexican fiesta night.

    Great trip with a friend

    The resort is beautiful, the staff is friendly, the food is good! Not the best beach, not all of the UVC perks were seen to (no snacks in the mini bar and no bottle in our room, as they advertise), and the toilet paper is scented, but overall a very enjoyable stay.

    Getting something to eat between the hours of 5pm and 6pm is difficult even calling room service at this time period will not get you fed during this time period. Most hotels allow the buffet to overlap into the dinner hours of the restaurants so people can wait out in the buffet while they wait for dinner.

    Birthday trip

    This was an amazing birthday trip. They went above and beyond to make sure we had an amazing stay. Ricardo during check in was exceptional as well as Claudia from UVC. They even made my reservations for me at restaurants. Ivan from the cabana rentals was also very attentive and made sure we had a blast. Already planning my next trip.
