Had a great time at Now Larimar with our 3 kids and another family of 4 Spring Break 2013. This was our first time taking the kids to an all inclusive as we usually do the Disney Cruise/ Florida for Spring Break. The entertainment staff was awesome and my kids LOVED them all! They really got families involved in the fun. Chocolatte and Eddie Murphy were two of their favorite. My 6 year old son loved the kids club and cried when we made him leave. The kids loved the trampoline, dancing lessons, water aerobics and beach workouts. We all loved the beach family contest and games. The nightly shows and the game shows were a lot of fun.
The food was okay, but mostly we chose the buffet as had long waits for a table for 9. Although it was expected for Spring Break, the resort was not full or that busy.
Our rooms were okay/ but nothing fancy. We had a few things break but they were repaired when we called. We did not have a nice view, overlooking a condo/ apartment and on an alley. It was often noisy on that side. We were in the Preferred club building but wish we would have had a pool view to not overlook the alley. The Preferred club lounge was nice for a drink/ snack and my daughters and I enjoyed going down in the a.m. and getting cappuccinos and sitting on their patio outside.
The local traffic on the beach was a bit disturbing. The locals would constantly try and sell things to you and a few attempted to talk to my tween daughters. We mostly lounged by the pool because of this.
The staff was amazing and worked very hard to please non stop.
The spa was nice. My daughter won a free massage from playing so many of the pool/ beach games. They earned bucks and could redeem them for things.
Punta Cana's airport is always a cluster. We have been there during non peak times before and security / check in is always a very long process.
I am curious to see how it compares to Iberostar's family resorts and beaches. We chose this resort as it was the most affordable at the time, with fair reviews.
