We stayed at the Now Lariimar February 20 - Mar 2. This is our second visit to the resort. We had stayed the previous year when it was the NH Real Arena and enjoyed it so much, we decided to return. Again this year, we chose the Preferred Club and stayed in an ocean front suite. While we were happy with our vacation in 2011, we enjoyed the improvements that had been made since; no bracelets, no reservations, Corona in the Preferred Club, butlers for the Preferred Club, service on the beach, upgrades to the gym. Just like last year, our room was beautiful and our maids kept it spotless. We especially enjoyed our evening visits from Rosa Maria and she even remembered us from last year. The beach was fantastic and we never had a problem finding a chair. Food was fine and we could always find something we liked to eat. French restaurant was our favorite. We didn't see much of the evening entertainment because we tend to be early morning travellers. However, there were activities and entertainment all throughout the day and the people who participated looked to be having a great time.
What stood out the most for us was the outstanding service. This has been my fourth trip to DR and the people in general seem to be great people. However, the staff at Now Larimar are the best of the best. Everyone is always smiling and every request is answered with "it's my pleasure." Ignacio, Mercedes and Jose Jorge at the Preffered Club pool bar were fantastic. David in the buffet and Capers breakfast had the biggest smile and always took great care of us. Once again, Carlos in the Sports Bar was the perfect ending to our day. We would always stop by for a drink after dinner and he would have it on the counter for us before we sat down. When we arrived this year, were very happy to find out he was still at the resort. Outstanding service and always entertaining. A very special thank you to Marcelino, manager of the Prefferred Club, who ensured our vacation was PERFECT! He certainly knows the meaning of customer service and goes above and beyond to make sure his guests are taken care of and treated like family. Together with Carlos in the Preferred Club, no request goes unanswered. We are already planning our return to the resort next year, not only because it is a great place, but we are looking forward to seeing everyone again.
Thanks again for another great vacation!
