Punta Cana comparison - Ocean El Faro El Beso or Breathless or other?

Asking for some friends -
Planning a trip for group of 5 in January 2020
Looking at either Ocean El Faro El Beso or Breathless but also open to a better resort in the same price category.
Looking for the following:
*Good food
*Safety
*Smoking free atmosphere, incl. rooms and beach areas
*Nice beach
*Fun activities

*Is adults only worth it?
*Go for 5 nights or 7?
*Air Transat vs West jet?

Budget: Flight + All inclusive Resort + Transfer = $1700 each person

Smoking is pretty liberal in DR

You can’t smoke in rooms but you can basically anywhere outside that is open (pools/ bars/ beach/ balcony).

Neither are on a the true white sandy /calmer beaches.

Breathless is more of a party atmosphere
El Faro will be quieter more typical AI experience

If you are after the best beaches the Hard Rock to the north is pretty much the furthest point you want to look at and Cap Cana area to the south.

As you move past the Hard Rock the ocean becomes rougher and sand is darker.

also just took a look 7 days is much cheaper then doing 5days. in terms of the hotel, i had a group of 10 stay at Ocean El Faro back in May and they loved it.
