4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The cub was to loud. The food was not the best. To much seaweed st the beach.

Hotel is OK, nothing special not worth $300 a night for sure!! We stayed there for 4 nights for our friends wedding. Food is horrible, at least 10 people from our group got food poisoning. I would not recommend this hotel, there is more better places to stay. The bartender in the referred bar was friendly if you tipped him, if not he was always so "busy" that you had to wait for 5 minutes for your drink- even if you were the only one at the bar. Go somewhere else !!

This resort is amazing from the check in, to the cleanliness of the room, service at the bars and beach location. Great entertainment in the evenings. Look for Luis the concierge and Guillermo the bell boy they are friendly and professional and made the trip amazing! The destination wedding we attended was so beautiful and we'll organized to the very last detail.

Our room was okay. Not overly clean or comfortable. The resort staff were very friendly. The constant push to sell us additional things was annoying. The stuff for children was subpar. The pool was out of towels most days by 11 and if you didn't get to the beach by 8 in the morning you would not get a chair with an umbrella. Food was okay. The ocean was beautiful.

The staff was very welcoming and really courteous. Am very pleased with the service that was provided to us.

Stayed at the preferred club rooms, for the extra cost you get for the most part, a couple more bars, breakfast by the beach palapa and a better view.

The first room we were placed in was smelly (musty/smoky in a non-smoking room) and there was no privacy glass in the bathroom. We then had to request a new room twice but were able to move, although it was not a pool view as purchased. We also had issues with our keys and had to go to the front desk on two occasions because they stopped working. Room was often not cleaned or re-stocked until very late in the date.

Overall the experience was a positive one, however left much to be desired. The staff was very pleasant, although they consistently try to up-sell services during your stay which got to be annoying. The facilities were nice, although you can tell the craftsmanship was fairly shoddy in most of the public facilities (pools/bars/etc). Our room was nice at first glance although our safe did not work and the refrigerator did not work. The location of the resort was great - cannot ask for more than being directly on the beach. The regular entertainment of the resort was also very good, the group who put together much of the fun games and things were very engaging and fun. The food was mediocre, a couple of the restaurants were good while others were simply blah. Without upgrading to a premium package there was only a single beer available and one of the restaurants listed on the site was not available.

I just came back from Punta Cana.Me and my wife had a nice and pleasant experience at Now Larimar hotel.The staff everywhere you go:the pools bar,the restaurants,the disco,,, you name it ,is ready to take care of every attention,like they say:excelente!

The room was very humid, nothing dried overnight. The food was average, at best.

We went for 6 nights in the "rainy" season may 10-17. We were hesitant but It rained maybe one evening for a few hours and that was all. The weather was fantastic, the staff was very friendly and very accommodating to the simplest of inquiries. Preferred Package definitely not worth it, You get access to like one restaurant, one extra pool, and your rooms are more secluded (slightly, just a door with a key card). If you are a younger, more relaxed person, this place is awesome and is a real bang for your buck, and you absolutely dont need to upgrade to preferred. If you are a snarky middle aged mother, or on a very private honeymoon, preferred may be a good upgrade. The 'constant' badgering by sales people is not that bad at all. You maybe talk to 2 people a morning, and if you simply say no thanks, or make something up like we are leaving tomorrow they wont waste your time or theirs. If you are a person who cant say no, you may be in trouble. We did one of the excursions by these guys, Sonoma beach or something (awesome, highly recommend!!) Only major con was food, very repetitive and dicey at times, I got sick the last night. If you are expecting 3 or 4 star cuisine you came to the wrong place, but if you dont mind an omelette for breakfast, a cheesburger for lunch, and a 6.5/10 plate of food from a restaurant for dinner, then you will have little to complain about.

Gargantuan megaplex far from the beach, depending on where your room is located.

Stayed here 2 yrs ago many changes, for the better.

This is a very beautiful hotel. The staff is amazing, very caring, and accommodating. Wonderful white sand beach! The room was lovely! Only downsides would be no snorkeling right off the beach and because it's a foreign country there's always the chance of travelers diarrhea no matter how nice the resort and this is a very nice resort!

Place is great value...I'd stay again..recommend the upgrade. Food and drink good and service good at pool bars.

The pool was nice. The second you stepped out onto the beach you were harassed by locals and even the resort staff. Food and/or water messed my stomach up for the entire trip. An FDA should be imposed to clear this up.

It was very nice. Would recommend and do it again thanks.

It was a very relaxing and the staff were amazing. Everyone was super friendly kudos to Jorge and Willy at the Garden bar.

I would definitely NOT recommend this hotel. We saw 5 rooms (mold smell) before we settled on one. Don't pay for the preferred. NOT WORTH IT and they don't check it anyways. Food- AWFUL. Many people were sick from the Italian restaurant during our stay as well. Positive- restaurant staff in particular were awesome people- very friendly, polite and just plain great people. I don't like to write a bad review but don't want others to waste their money on this hotel.

The best part about this trip was the friendly staff. Everyone went out of their way to make our stay extra special.

Dear mary. We are sorry your experience was not according to your expectations. We have noted your comment in order to evaluate actions to improve. Related to the seaweed consider even that we have a team to clean the beach, it comes naturally through the waves.

Dear aicjat, Receive our apologies if we failed to provide you a totally pleasant stay. Related to the food, we have transmitted your comment to the Food & Beverage team. Nonetheless, let us mention that travelers are more likely to get sick due to the change in their regular routine, weather, and diet. We can secure our hotel follows rigorous quality criteria, that we are even regularly audit by an external company. Best regards,

Dear Guest, Let us start by saying that we like to read about the willingness from our staff to provide you great attentions. We would like to add, although, that we are sorry because it seems like we failed to give you a fully pleasant stay. Regarding to the beer, take into consideration that when it comes to international brands we depend on external providers, for this reason are subject to availability We hope to have the opportunity to improve this experience. Best regards,
