Premium liquor not always available

Pros: The entertainment crew with Blacky as the manager.

Location: We stayed in the resort and that was our plan.

It was okay

Pros: The staff
Cons: They need to get rid of the different tier system. How can someone pay so much money to go there during christmas. We are paying top dollar.
Location: n/a
The staff was Excelente. They all work very hard. Thank you to Laura and Lutz, the ladies at the carnival buffet restaurant. The entertainment is great. Very works really hard and you can tell. Food: Was okay. Bluewater grill was my favorite. The grill at the beach did not look attractive. So I never ate there. Even the hotdog and hamburgers did not look appetizing. Beach was rough. I would not recommend anyone coming here unless it is during the summer. They don't warm up the pool, so even when it's 80 degrees, the pool water was 50 degrees. Freezing all the time. Even the jacuzzi was freezing cold.

Dear, Thank your for highlight along your comment the job of our team to make sure our guests have a great time. Regarding to your comment, the condition of the water in our pools are according to the weather, it means if the weather is a little be cold, so the water is going to be like that, and as you can undertand it is saddly out of our hands. As you said, we hope you consider to return for summer and experiment the weather in that period of time. Best regards,

I am not impressed with this resort.

Pros: Beach area are awesome! Rooms and pools are great.
Cons: Service level, cleanliness, selection of food, entertainment.
Location: This location is great. It s only 20 min from the airport
Service at the restaurants was very poor. Entertainment options were limited. I stayed at multiple Now resorts but this one so far was the worst one in regards to service, food options and cleanliness. I would not come back here. There are much better resorts in Punta Cana for the same price.

Now Larimar Resort nice and clean

Pros: many activities and free drinks
Cons: you should serve Dominican Republican food at every meal
Location: shopping at the San Juan Plaza was great. would recommend that plaza as a safe and clean place to visit.
Nice resort, rooms are clean and updated with a balcony and hot tub. Plenty of food choices. plenty of activities like 1. sailing lessons on the catamaran 2. kayak lessons. 3. volley ball . just an example of some of the many activities. night club , casino, dancing shows and karaoke. All the drinking you can imagine . I would recommend this resort.

Decent hotel

From the start or trip was kind of screwed up at the Now Larimar. We had to pay for s pool view when we booked because they were all out of the tropical view. When we got there we were in a tropical view room with no pool in site. (Keep in mind pool view was 50 more a night, equalling 300 for our whole trip). We called down to the desk the resort basically was overbooked they had nowhere to move us, nobody could fix the situation. It took until going to find the concierge of the preferred club our friends were part of to get this handled a full day later. And get this, all they did was move us 4 rooms down to the same view. Food was average at every place we went too. Beach was full of seaweed. They let outside vendors such as Sea Pro walk around the pools so they are constantly bugging you to do an excursion. They couldn't give us one hour extra for late check out they said each extra hour was 20.00. Funny because when we got there nobody showed us our room we spent a good 45 minutes looking for the room with two of our bags because they wouldn't take all of our luggage. All the restaurants are average. Mercure, the French place was the worst service. We waited 45 minutes for soup and another hour and a half for dinner. The room service food is terrible. Mini bar for an all inclusive sucks. Two cans of presidente and presidente light and some soda. We stayed at Excellence in Mexico last year (they have a location in the Dominican as well) and the mini bar had full 5ths. :-/

Great place

Beautiful grounds, very clean. Everyone was very friendly. The beach was very nice too. A little bit of sea grass, but still nice. The service was excellent drinks all the time on the beach, by the pool.  Had a lot og chairs by the beach. Food was good we always found something we liked to eat. Wi-Fi didn't come in the best, but that was ok we were on vacation.

over all happy with our stay at Larimar

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, great beach, pools
Cons: No free Internet
The staff is well trained to make you feel important and relaxed. The pools are all awesome . The beach water is absolutely gorgeous. The one major complaint is that the room we were in had a wide open window overlooking the the rest of the room. This made it difficult to bath with privacy. My wife and daughter did not appreciate this. The food quality and selection of restaurants was pretty good. we would definitely return.

This resort is NOT part of the perferred hotel group

I booked thinking this was part of preferred hotels of the world group. It is not. 2 of the 3 sister hotels are part of it but this hotel is not up to that standard. I was not expecting great food but the food was horrible. We brought our 8 year old who ate bread and hot dogs. Everything on the buffet was cold. Even when you got something cooked to order, there was no flavor. I will admit that I am not a drinker so bottled water was for me. When I did ask for a drink, it definitely makes a difference who makes it and ordering in the restaurant or plaza was a guarantee that I wouldn't like it. No milkshakes for kids. For premium liquors we would go to club lounge. The club level was worth it for a pool that wasn't as rowdy as the main pool. However, I thought it was weird that wifi was included on club level but I had to call three times to get the code and then it is only good for 10 hours a day (consecutive#. The first night we got turn down service and then never again. Our room wasn't cleaned by housekeeping until after 6p day two so no turn down service. Day 3 it was cleaned at 9:00a and no turn down service. There is no ocean trampoline #a selling point for the kid). I wasn't impressed with the three restuarants that kids were allowed. The staff is friendly. The beach was FULL of seaweed and the ocean was not clear. Don't forget that DR charges $10pp for a tourist card when you enter and some airlines do not include the $20 departure tax so make sure to have CASH on you. Also don't forget sunscreen because with the exchange rate, it will cost you in the gift shop. We saw one family spend $42USD on two bottles of suncreen. We tried to make the best of it, spending time at the pool, walking on the beach, playing chess, spider jump for kid, kayaking, bowling, playing pool etc. I don't know if it is Punta Cana I don't like or just chose a bad resort. Other people said the beaches were beautiful and the water clear. Not here. It is about a 20-25 min. ride from the airport.
