“Amazing resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

We stayed at this resort for two weeks and loved every second of it. We were in the preferred club area it was well worth it. The view was fantasic. We had a great view of the ocean,as well as most the middle of the resort. The staff was excellent. No problems with service at the pools and resturants, or with our room. It was always cleaned and never an issue with the towels. Thanks for that Leidy and Rosa, loved the towels decorations that you made for us. The friendly staff at Castways always made our mornings. Rose, Able, Johnthan, Alex and Henry thanks for everthing you were great. Yessika at the splash pool was always happy to bring us drinks and chat. When reading some of the reviews, I can't imagine where they stayed. All the staff worked hard and did everything they could to make our trip enjoyable. I would recommend this hotel and will go back. This is the second Now that we have stayed at, will be making sure that this chain is on top of my list when looking into vacations.
My only two wishs/suggestions is that some of the ala carte resturants did not rush us through our dinner. And that the gym was a little bigger. The food was very good and Capers resturant is a must. Loved having dinner out side.
Thanks again for a great holiday.

Dear Now Larimar Valued Guest,

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay with us, and that our staff took good care of you. We're very proud of the team we have assembled here. To a person, they are all wonderful.

As far as your suggestions are concerned:

1. We would like to offer every of our guests the chance to dine in our restaurants and we have listened to other guest, who were complaining about the long waiting time in the restaurants. Therefore we have speeded up our service a little bit.

2. The gym is left to be small, because we also have work outs at the beach and the pools organised by the entertainment team.

We all look forward to your return.

Warm regards from your friends at Now Larimar Punta Cana

We just returned home and I decided to write a review based on how wonderful my trip was. We stayed in the garden side which evidently is the older part, I had no clue. The rooms look brand-new, and it is much quieter on the Garden side. The only drawback with this is you have to either take a golf cart or walk to the beach or other pools.
I found that the staff was very friendly from the maid to the bartenders everybody was very helpful.
I would've recommends Now Larimar to anybody I know.

We have stayed at the Now Larimar every year since it opened and we love it. The beach is beautiful and we could always find chairs in the preferred club area. We were the last week in January and first week in February 2013. The DR people including the staff are very friendly and in particular we would like to mention the manager Marcelino who was very attentive and helpful and made us always feel at home.
With regards to the entertainment, our favourite performer was Luis Salas, singer from Spain. His music can be enjoyed by everyone because it is versatile. We do recommend more seating for guests during his shows and his performances advertised. We also met many other guests during our stay who indicated how much they enjoyed Luis Salas. It was a very nice alternative to the regular performances.
We enjoyed the super bowl party, great effort by the hotel and entertainment team to put together a great night of food, drinks and festivities in the theatre. We also enjoyed the Dominican show and in particular Aikon who impresses us every year. Overall, we enjoyed all the shows.
The food and service was excellent. We received great service from David Santana in the preferred club buffet. David in particular made our stay special and his team was also very attentive.
Thank you as well to Viktor Fran, Resident Manager who was very knowledgeable and made us feel welcome.
We have recommended this hotel to others and will continue to do so.

We had a great time but it could have been a lot different if we did not upgrade to the preferred club. This put us close to the beach and access to less crowded pool and beach area. Half the buildings with regular rooms were a very long way to beach and main resturants but there were gold cart shuttels. Also preferred gave access to two private lounges with upgraded booze, snacks, soft drinks and computers. The resturant near beach and large pool open to the preferred was very nice. Our first trip to all inclusive so can't compare but food not very good. You had to choose wisely at buffets and resturants if you wanted a decent meal but breakfast was good. The staff was very friendly and attentive but most could not speak english so knowledge of a little Spanish would be helpful. Felix A was assigned to our area and seemed to be everywhere helping people. Any minor issues he took care of quickly. The beach was great and there were plenty of activities.

Room Tip: The preferred rooms are the only ones close to beach. End unit 1281 even had beach view.

This was my first trip to Dominican Replublic with my wife for our anniversary, and Now Larimar was strongly recommended by family and friends.
I have to say this hotel lived up to its expectations, outstanding service, outstanding facilities and value for money! All staff are friendly, very welcoming and great at what they do, requests are always met and delivered with a smile.
Marcellino, one of the managers went out of his way to look after us, in every possible way and could not have done enough for us, lovely person who should in my opinion be manager of the year!
Lovely restaurants, even for an all inclusive package, i strongly recommend this hotel, set on the beach with great views, especially if you upgrade to the Preffered Club, thank you to all staff at Now Larimar for making our trip such a great one!
