The hotel

The perks at Now Larimar are infinite — if it isn’t the ‘money can’t buy’ location on one of the Caribbean’s best beaches, Playa de Bávaro, it’s the bottomless drinks and 24-hour dining. Whether you’re on the sands, by the pool, at the gourmet restaurants, or even in your room, the freebies here are limitless — in fact, they’re so eager to ensure you’re well fed and watered they have pool and beach waiters, offer 24-hour room service, and top up your mini-bar with more free treats each day. And, while you’re tucking into those complimentary in-room refreshments, you can surf free WiFi, or laze on your private balcony or terrace. You can even upgrade to the Preferred Club Rooms, where even more luxuries are laid on.

This review will be a little lengthy because while I am reviewing under Larimar, we actually stayed at Onyx! Long story short, we came down last year to pick a venue and after 6 site inspections, we fell in love with Larimar. We met with Francina at the time and between the beautiful layout and her charm and sincerity, we chose this resort for a November 2019 wedding. Sometime around early September, we found out Larimar was closing due to renovations and need I tell you, we were really upset. Here is where the positives come in! We were lucky enough to have the loveliest ladies in all of Punta Cana helping us get this figured out - Francina Rodriguez and Angela Ramirez! As one would imagine, having the venue for a wedding shut down just two months before you are scheduled can be pretty upsetting, however, these two amazing ladies kept us calm and worked endlessly, putting their own lives on hold to make everything work out. I cannot say enough about them. They reassured us every step of the way and held true to their promises. The wedding was at Onyx and it was lovely in every way. While Francina was not here for the wedding, Angela handled every detail with care and commitment and made this day the wedding my daughter dreamed of. They are true professionals and I was not an easy customer! They answered every email I sent (and there were many), the made everything just as we expected or better. I have come to love both of these women and if you are planning a wedding in Punta Cana, I would put my trust in Now Resorts and Francina and Angela. A shout out to Luisa Miranda as well! She too answered for Angela and Francina when they were out of reach! Lovely ladies, a wonderful wedding and a happy daughter - what more can I ask for! Read less

Now Larimar is a beautiful Resort! Everyone is very professional! Everyone treats you like you are the only person there! The best thing is if they didn't speak English - everyone knew enough to communicate to you to take you to someone who did!

I came to Punta Cana for my first wedding anniversary. We both never stayed before in the Caribbean and by the comments this hotel was pretty much what we were looking for: decent price, all-inclusive and with many compliments of their service. The experience has been over the top. Before arrival we informed them about our special celebration and upon arrival we found a happy anniversary banner on the door and a delicious champagne in the room. Every night the housekeeper did a fantastic job decorating the room. Although, this is not an adult only property, we were able to relax and even try the dinner at the beach. It is an experience worth living if you come with your husband or boyfriend. We also went to the spa for a massage and I left feeling completely new. My suggestion is: not only do the all- inclusive, but also experience the extra services they offer. We agree that we will be more than willing to return. Read less
