Room was large with heavy drapes covering all windows, and could not be opened to let some sunlight in. Silly. A small third floor balcony was nice except for needing to fight with the curtains that barred the door. Pool was a treat but don't go the the adjoining beach after dark or you'll be dissuaded by the local security... More

I went there with my family (36 in total) and had a blast. Great spot to rest and have fun. Hotel grounds and recreation areas spotless. GREAT FOOD AND EXCELLENT SERVICE, both from management and staff. Price is also great. Restrooms need a little updating and TLC, but overall is a very good vacation spot at an affordable price. Highly... More

Me and my family went to DR for a few days and we decided to visit the city of Barahona. This hotel made the difference of the whole trip. We were very lucky since the owner of the hotel was there and we received great attention and services. Great food and great environment accompanied us during our stay and without... More

Was booked by our customer into the Larimar Hotel on a full service Stay that includes all meals and soft drinks. The hotel is currently a bit upgraded, but shows the age in several fields. Hot water is often an issue, specially during well occupied times. Staff is friendly and the food ( often a buffet ) is good. Not... More

First, you walk into a gorgeous lobby, and it makes you think that the $140 is worth it. Then you meet, Savier, the rudest receptionist I've ever met. My room price ended up being $220, which I had to pay in pesos, which they converted at $40 (considering the peso was at $45). We went to our bedroom, and we... More

A travel agent booked this for us. Can't believe someone would actually think this is a proper hotel. So disgusted with the bed, dirty filthy coverlet that has never been washed. As we are stuck here for 3 terrible nights, we ended up using the towels to cover the pillows. Ewwww. The music is BLASTING loud in the pool/restaurant/bar area... More

I have stayed here annually for a week for 8 years. I agreee with other reviews that ratings are relative to other "outside-of USA" places. For business and missions this is a very nice place to stay. Beautiful grounds. Not a resort beach, but you can spend time on the beach and swim in the warm Carribean. The pool is... More

I have been staying at this hotel for 18 years. The hotel has seen good and bad days. Currently the A/C, water, electricity is working. Breakfast is the basics. If the Hotel is full the breakfast is better. Everything is clean. The linens are well dated but clean. Staff are very friendly. No English these days. Not a vacation spot... More
