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.

The first thing I have to say is that our 7 day trip at Now Larimar Punta Cana far exceeded what we expected. Every aspect that Now Larimar provided was fantastic. The beach was kept clean of seaweed. They were relentless to ensure that we had a clean beach. The rooms were kept cleaned. The cleaning crew kept it very clean. The restaurants provide very tasty food. It was all very fresh and well stocked. The shows were very entertaining. They really put in alot of effort to ensure that the shows were of high quality. The best part of the experience was the staff. Very friendly and attentive. They always made us feel welcome and treated us like family. There was one particular server, Velasquez, who made our trip very memorable. He went out of his way to provide us with an experience we will never forget. He suprised us with special tables for breakfast and then to top it off, provided a birthday dinner suprise for me and my family. He gave us a memorable day that we will always remember. Thank you Velasquez! I would definely recommend this resort and recommend that you upgrade to Preferred Club. Don't listen to the negative reviews as they are unfounded based on the trip that I experienced. WELL DONE NOW LARIMAR PUNTA CANA!!!! Read less
