Breathless Punta Cana Resort, Casino & Spa
Breathless Punta Cana is an adults-only, all-inclusive resort owned and operated by AMResorts. Located in the Uvero Alto region of Punta Cana on the sublime northeast coast of the Dominican Republic, Breathless Punta Cana is just a short walk from the popular palm-tree laden sandy beaches and crisp blue ocean. There are limitless activities to be enjoyed at this resort, and their small, on-site casino is certainly one of them.
The casino at Breathless Punta Cana appears to be somewhat of an afterthought, as it is fairly small in size. With that said, it looks smart, is well presented and will be more than adequate for you to get your gambling fix while on vacation.
Reaching the Breathless Punta Cana Resort Spa from the Punta Cana International airport will take between 30 to 45 minutes. You could opt to get a taxi, airport shuttle, or rent a car and drive yourself if you plan on taking in sights outside of the resort. There is ample car parking available at the resort and this is included with the package that you purchase from AMResorts.
When it comes to entertainment, this resort has just about everything you will need. You will also find an array of other resorts, casinos, restaurants and nightclubs in the Punta Cana area if you are the type that likes to do some exploring.
Casino at Breathless Punta Cana Resort & Spa
There are a number of casinos in the Punta Cana region of the Dominican Republic, but the casino at the Breathless Punta Cana Resort & Spa is widely renowned as one of the best. It is quite small but is professionally laid out and kept clean. Drinks are free at all times (as they are everywhere else in the resort) due to the all-inclusive packages that guests purchase to stay here.
The casino opens at 6PM every day of the week and stays open very late. There is not a dead-set closing time here, and they seem to shut down the casino when there are only a few players left on the main floor. The entire resort is “adults-only” – so if you are old enough to stay here, then you are old enough to gamble. There is a nice selection of table games along with a decent number of slot machines available for gamblers to enjoy.
With most of the visitors being vacationers, the limits here are not as high as you might find at proper casinos in Las Vegas but most guests will be satisfied. You can always speak to the casino manager or staff if you do want to bump up the limits at a table and they will see if the other players at the table agree.
Table Games at Breathless Punta Cana Resort & Spa
In total, you will find 8 tables at the casino in the Breathless Punta Cana Resort and these will provide a selection of casino table games for you to enjoy. You will be glad to hear that most of the more common games (like blackjack and baccarat, for example) are covered here.
There are 3 blackjack tables which you might expect as it is one of the most popular games among players. In fact, due to their popularity, it is best to get to the casino as early as possible if you want to get a seat. During peak hours you may find it difficult to find an open seat. The variation of blackjack played may differ from table to table, so be sure to checker with the dealer before placing your bets.
There is just 1 Caribbean Stud Poker running at Breathless, while the 3 remaining tables will alternate between other popular card games such as 3-card poker, baccarat, Let it Ride, and Texas Hold’em Poker.
Roulette players will not be disappointed, as there is 1 roulette table that is always filled with players. American Roulette is the variation of this game played at this resort which may disappoint those that prefer European Roulette due to the better odds it provides.
The only real disappointment is the lack of a craps table at the casino in the Breathless Punta Cana Resort. There are more than 30 other casinos in this area, however, so if you really do want to play this game, you will certainly be able to find it somewhere.
Slots and Video Poker at Breathless Punta Cana
The small number of slot machines in this casino might be a little disappointing.
