6 of us have just returned from now larimar hotel.we had a great time. rooms were big and very clean.pool areas were very good never once did we not find a sunbed anywhere we wanted and the hotel was very busy.food was very good and the waiters wilton and david made our holiday even better by looking after us every day,nothing was too much trouble for them,they catered for every need.they made us laugh the whole 11 days we were there.beach was perfect ,clean plenty of parasols,and the sea was warm and blue.there was a lot of staff about the resort who were all great,and could not do enough for you.entertainment was good during day as well as night so plenty to do if thats your thing.would go again.

Room Tip: rooms on 2nd floor better.

We booked through Apple Vacations with a deal where THEY choose the (all-inclusive) hotel/resort for you, and we really lucked out by getting NOW Larimar. This place is absolutely beautiful! The grounds, the pools, plazas, beach, everything! The place has a big staff that really takes care of the details. The place is amazingly well run! The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The beach area is amazing - the sand is like powder, and all the palm trees make it exactly what you expect from a Caribbean beach vacation!

This place had a great location in the heart of the beach resort zone, so there is lots of stuff within walking distance on the beach. NOW Larimar has the widest cross-section of guests: couples, family groups, young, old, American, non-American, etc. and that makes it much more stimulating.

We had never done an all-inclusive before, and this is really done right! High scores all around! Be sure to read my tips...

Room Tip: Here are several tips: Don't select a "garden view" room. Those are at the back of the property and only have a view of a swimming pool. If you can't afford a room in the main section, then wait and save more money... The palapas (thatched umbrellas) on the beach are all taken by 9:30 AM. If you want one, get there early. Oh yeah: and use sun screen! Even though it's all inclusive, you can and should still tip a buck or two for bar/waiter/maid services. It makes a difference. Be aware of the dress code for dinner.

We had booked a week with 30 guests at this resort. I am a very seasoned traveller and have visited almost all sunny destination vacation spots. From the moment we arrived the service was exceptional! We as most travelers had checked sites like this for reviews on this resort and of course you always get those reviews which leave you scepticial about your choice. Well let me tell you, From our wedding planner Luisa Miranda to the server in the main dining room (Gabriel) this resort not only meet all of our requirements but far exceeded all of them. When it came to the wedding not that we wanted anything to big or fancy, there was not a thing Luisa didn't do. For my bride this was such a pleasurable experience. We sat with Luisa for an hour the day before the wedding and presto, the next day everything was EXACTLY as we had asked and Luisa stayed for the entire wedding and dinner to make sure everything was perfect and exceeded what we request. It was truely amazing!!! My new wife and I actually called this place the wedding factory, because there was nothing that they could not do. They do 3-4 weddings a day, and yes that sounds like you would trip all over this stuff while on holidays, not so. We had a beach wedding and about an hour or so before the event what seems like 30-40 guy's come out carrying chairs, tables, the bar, everything you have asked for. it is set up in 30 minutes waiting for you. As soon as you are done and go for dinner they swoop in and break it down, INCREDIBLE! This resort looks so big but it is probably the perfect size. No trains to catch and if you have ever stayed at a resort with the modified golf carts you know what I mean. But to get anywhere on the resort was really no big deal. The resort was fully booked when we stayed there yet there was never, really never, a wait at any resteraunt, and something else, if you travelled you will like this, no getting up at 6am to put your towel out on a chair either at the pool or beach.....they have plenty everywhere! I would like to point out that so many employee's that made this such a wonderful holiday like Gabriel in the main dining room who always had a table of 30 laughing and enjoying the evening, right to Daniella at the prefered pool who always made sure our glass's where full and that we where happy, and even Rosa Maria the night turn down maid who always had a high five for you. The on site photo studio was AMAZING! Ameila was our photogragher and if you want to talk about money shoots, she had the eye! Also we had all photo's and the video with in 24hrs and once people in my group saw them they too started booking private picture shoot's. If by chance you read this, trust me, I have been to St Martiin, Jamacia, Panama, Mexico, Africa, Egypt, etc, this resort know has a repeat customer, and all of our friends feel the same. Check it out you absolutly will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Go for pool or ocean view they are exceptional

A group of 10 of us were at the Now Larimar the week of 4/20-4/28 and overall were very pleased. I have traveled to several all inclusive resorts in Mexico and this was the 2nd one in Punta Cana. We chose this resort based on past experience with the AMREsorts Management at Dreams Puerto Vallarta and for the excellent reviews of the beach and the kids club. (We had a 12 year old and a 6 year old in our group.) Three adults in the group had never been to an All Inclusive and were surprised and pleased with the experience, as they had read several of the reviews and were a bit "iffy". I found the resort to be beautifully landscaped and extremely clean. The staff was extremely cordial and would go out of their way to help you with any issues you may have.

A special shout out to Efriam, Wikki, Junior, Mercedes and a few more that for the life of me I cannot remember (all were preferred club staff). All of our group stayed in the Preferred Club and all felt it was definitely worth the upgrade/money.
The only real negatives we can say are:
The beds are definitely hard, the drink service in the buffet is slow and the Mexican Restaurant's servers left a lot to be desired. Our drink orders were not filled and despite saying what we wanted for dessert the server opted to bring us an assortment of his choosing. Needless to say we did not leave a tip.

The resort was pretty much full the week we stayed and we did have to request a few things here and there but overall every request was efficiently handled.

The food was typical of an AI at this price range, good but not great. If you are looking for gourmet food for the price you pay to go here, you will be disappointed, but the choices were pretty extensive and you can find something to satisfy your craving.

One very big plus was the grill on the beach---no need to trek far to eat lunch.

Like I said before, keep an open mind and you will enjoy your stay.

This resort is a great place to bring any type group as long as everyone knows you are not in the US, the food will taste a bit different, you are on vacation, keep an open mind and sit back and relax.

Room Tip: I would not visit this resort and stay in the garden view rooms as they are extremely far from the beach so if the beach is your preference, choose preferred.

The resort was excellent and all the staff were sooooo very nice and cheerful all the time. We especially enjoyed our waiter, Wilki Guillen, that worked at the Carnival and Blue. He made us always feel so special and that we were the only ones at the resort. Loved his sense of humor and his dancing!!!
