Tropical Sky says

If you are young or young at heart and looking for a luxurious tropical resort with a lively atmosphere, we’ve got just the place. We’ve negotiated a very low single supplement at the beachfront Breathless Punta Cana Resort & Spa in the Dominican Republic (and no single supplement for stays completed between 18 August and 21 December 2018).

This adult-only five star all-inclusive hotel has 750 contemporary Junior Suites and a vast range of facilities and activities – big enough to give you the space to simply relax on your own but also with a friendly vibe if you want to socialise with other guests.

There are 11 restaurants, from a stylish grill to authentic Eastern Mediterranean cuisine, and nine bars plus entertainment and live music each evening. All meals and premium brand drinks are included in the price – even a minibar, refreshed daily. There is no enforced socialising but you can join one of the communal tables in four of the restaurants whenever you feel like some company.

There’s a choice of swimming pools and whirlpools as well as a gorgeous palm-fringed wide white sand beach with unlimited non-motorised water sports and an introductory scuba lesson included in the price. You could even come away with a PADI Open Water certification if you fancy learning to dive during your holiday (extra cost).

Indulge in some spa treatments (extra cost) or join other guests in a range of free activities such as tennis, volleyball, paddle ball, aerobics, dance and Spanish classes. You can also download the hotel’s smartphone App, Unlimited Connectivity, for access to a guest chatroom – organise a meet-up over cocktails or look for a tennis partner, for example.

Local sightseeing options include historic Santo Domingo, La Romana and the local markets in Higuey.
