“Excellent experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

The perfect place for a family fun trip. We all met there and spent a wonderful vacation. Good and fast service, very nice and helpful people from the front desk to the cleaning lady. Food was very good and with a large variety. If you ask for a mimosa at breakfast, you get it inmediately. I loved the coffee stand where one can get from spresso to capuccino made in front of you. The beach was beautiful. I will definitely go back and highly recommend it.

I returned just over 3 weeks ago from one of the best trips I've ever been on. I was the tour director for a group of 270+ people. I have been with this group for 13 years and this was by far the best trip yet.

From the moment we arrived, the staff was at our service to take care of any need we had. Marcelino, Beatriz, and Victor provided service that I have never experienced before. They made sure everything was perfect for my group.

From the seamless group check-in, to the inviting welcome cocktail party, amazing dance party at Eclipse, out of this world pool-side dinner and our grand finale, the dance party on the beach, everything was perfect. Oh, and who can forget how the management team played in our beach volleyball tournament.

The entertainment staff kept things exciting. From joining our parties and dancing with the group to making sure no one was ever bored during the day poolside.

The rooms were pristine, the meals were incredible, the drinks strong and plentiful, and the service out of this world.

I highly recommend NOW Larimar to any group, couple, or family.

Thanks again for the best trip ever and for making my job a tiny bit easier!

Room Tip: All the rooms were great, but the preferred club rooms are definitely the best value. Extra amenitie...

Just returned from a 7 day/6 night trip to Punta Cana - had a great time! The weather luckily was was very nice, only one day of rain. The food is great - restaurants are good, selection is great, a la carte restaurants were great because doesn't require reservations and is on a first come first serve basis, room service was convenient!

The service though was what impressed me the most - Jose Osvaldo in Carnival International Buffet is a smiling face that I won't forget. He greeted our party every day for lunch or dinner and by the end of the trip, he was almost part of the family!

Overall, great experience and highly recommended!

Room Tip: Pool side is probably best bang for your buck - ocean view doesn't really give you much of a vie...

Six couples from New Jersey went to Now Larimar on November 4, 2012. It could not have come at a better time after Hurricane Sandy hit us all. It was total devastation around us and we didn't even know if we would be able to go. Fortunately for all of us we were on our way and couldn't have made a better decision. Now Larimar has the nicest staff I think I've ever encountered. Modesto in the buffet dining room was fabulous. So personable and genuine. Junior, our bartender at the pool bar was fantastic. Smiling all the time, dancing for us and always there with our drinks. These guys work very long hours and always are there to greet you with a smile. The beach was clean and beautiful and the pool was just gorgeous. The only thing I can say negative is that they need to offer more then Presidente beer. But Junior helped us with that and made us Banana Monkeys which were to die for!!!!!! All 12 of us had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend this resort. It's all inclusive with a buffet everyday and 4 restaurants for your dining pleasure. The casino was small but we had a ball in there everynight. I can see myself absolutely coming back to Now Larimar in the future. Thanks to all the staff for letting us forget about the devastation we left in New Jersey if only for 5 days. I think we all needed that break.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Tropical Garden room. It was very quiet and a very nice room with a huge tub, which...

Fourth trip to Punta Cana-2 to Dreams Palm Beach and 2 to Now Larimar. Just returned from a 10 day trip booked thru West Jet Vacations. Enjoyed the Preferred club upgrades: free wifi, breakfast at castaway seaside grill, preferred beach area, special lounge. Nice variety of restaurants, we like French (adult only) and Italian, but have tried them all. Special thanks to "my son" Arimende for excellent service and Jerameel at Castaway.
Travelled with friends who stayed at the Upper part of the resort. Rooms nice, quiter pool area. A bit far from beach for us, but they enjoyed.
This resort has something for everyone. Plenty to do if you like shows, activities, small casino, disco,kids club and more.
Would definitely go back. Excellente!!

Room Tip: Nicer views of water on 3 and 4 floor looking toward pool in 1st and 2nd buildings from beach. Some...

Jeff and I enjoyed our first anniversary/honeymoon at this great resort for 8 glorious days. We also celebrated a beautiful wedding! We were amazed by the service and attention at every restaurant, bar and pool at this resort. A special shout out to folks who made our stay EXCELLENTE! Gabriela and Samuel in the Preferred Reception Office! Every breakfast at the buffet was different and special thanks to Daniel and Samuel! Most of our stay was spent and the beach or at the preferred pools and we want to recognize those who went out of their way to make it special: Salome (not salami), Junior, Yubelkis, Mercedes & Juan! We will see you next year!

Room Tip: We highly recommend upgrading to a preferred room in the Punta Cana Building. Also, The Ocean View S...

Anyone who complains about this resort just can’t be pleased!! Is it perfect? No, but it’s reasonably priced and VERY nice!!! The whole resort is very well kept and clean. We were in a garden view building, which IS away from the other main buildings, so you do kind of feel like you’re away from all the action (which may be a good or bad thing) but they have golf carts that transport you back and forth 24 hours a day so it’s no big deal. Plus they are the newer rooms so they are modern and not to mention they are the cheaper rooms so you can save a buck. The only negative thing is there was A LOT of noise in the halls all hours of the night. There isn’t any separation between the bedroom and the bathroom (at least in the normal rooms), but there are colored doors for the toilet and shower, so that wasn’t a big deal either. The grounds were absolutely beautiful. The pools were beautiful, plenty of loungers. There IS seaweed on the beach, but it’s the Atlantic so there’s nothing that can be done about that. We took an excursion to Saona Island which is on the Caribbean side (worth every penny of the $115!!) It was absolutely breathtaking. THERE is where you will find the crystal clear calm turquoise water! So if that is what you want, definitely take the excursion (or if you can afford it, just stay on the Caribbean side of the DR). The food wasn’t really anything to write home about, but it was fine. The buffets worked for breakfast, some of the restaurants are better than others. We liked Caper’s the best. Every employee was very nice and friendly!! Especially Fabio Star, who went out of his way to get us to do things we wouldn’t have otherwise done. Anyone who says there is a language barrier didn’t even try! Every employee we came in contact with knew enough English or even spoke it very well. We had absolutely no problem! As long as you know your “hola”, “gracias”, “muy bien” you’ll be fine! The hotel made sure they knew our schedule for our flight back and came to US to let us know what time to be ready for the shuttle to go back to the airport and everything, so there is no worries about that going wrong. They were very accommodating. They even had a free shuttle that took us to a shop where we could do some more touristy shopping. We took advantage of a few of the resort activities, we were pleased with the ones we did do. There ARE guys that try to get you to go into their shops on the beach, we did follow a couple of them because we were interested in doing some shopping, otherwise, we just said “no thank you” a few times and they got the idea. The weather was set to be rainy while we were there, but it turned out just fine! Perfect and sunny each day! (hot and humid, but perfect!) I would definitely recommend this place!
