Great Value!

Second time to Punta Cana, and this place was much better than my first experience! The Garden is attached to mega-resort Larimar, which is also attached to "Secrets" (so basically, 3 resorts in 1). The golf cart is about a 1 minute ride, and we never really had to wait for it. The walk to the Larimar is about 5 minutes, along a paved, lighted pathway. Service was EXCELLENT at all bars and restaurants. The only issue service related that we had was the hostess at the French restaurant (we dealt with her twice, because she was working the Japanese restaurant when the French was closed) - she was EXTREMELY rude, and all of the other vacationers noticed this as well. Entertainment was worth the watch, and the nightclub had wonderful entertaining staff. Beach was great, always an open chair available. We found ourselves sitting in the "secrets" or "preferred" areas more often, and had no trouble doing so.

Resort was just OK

We were a bit confused when we showed up. There are 3 resorts on the campus. The Now Garden, The Now Larimar, and Secrets. Secrets and Larimar are on the beach. Now Garden is about a 10 minute walk. I wasn't aware of this at all. The whole time we stayed at the Now Garden they kept trying to upsell us to the other two. It got VERY VERY annoying. I was initially told it would be $100.00 more a night, they then went down to $60.00, then $20.00. Once he said $20.00 I said ok, I'll do it, but he then said he couldn't actually do it for $20.00 and he would just charge me $60.00. It was very sketchy and I told him I immediately just wanted to go to my room (in the Now Garden). They also had locals who would stay for just the weekend, and pack 6-10 people in a room. It would get very loud at night. We didn't appreciate that. The servers were all very nice though! You were also given nice sized glasses, unlike other resorts that give small paper cups at the bar. The beach was also really nice!

Amazing staff

The staff was so nice & accommodating each day we were there. The room could have been a little more clean. Food was great. Pool was awesome along with the drinks. We had a great time on our honeymoon.

Horrible

I went on this trip in September.The room definitely did not reflect the pictures I saw on the internet! I don't know if they are showing pictures from a long time ago or if they are photoshopped! This hotel was a horrible first impression for a first trip to Punta Cana. Although the female that did my check-in was nice her English and understanding was somewhat limited! The room did not give off a tropical experience.... the bed/linen was very dingy!! I used the bathroom and washed my hands and the water was just sitting in the sink. After going back to the desk to complain about the accommodations I was shown the other two resorts that were within in the same area. I ended up at Secrets which was a wonderful experience. I did have to pay additional money but I wanted to enjoy this trip and my accommodations so I paid. Comfort has no price restrictions!! If you don't care about where you stay Now Garden is the place for you but if you want comfort and wonderful views do NOT stay at Now Garden Punta Cana.

What's to Love

Lush walkways weave throughout the resort - it's like a Zen garden, but without tubby chanting gurus.

A homey feeling resort - except you don't do the chores at this one.

Connecting rooms are available so if you're traveling with family or a group, it makes life easier.

The swim-up rooms - you can be in the pool as soon as you wake up!

Bavaro Beach is GORGEOUS! Spend the day just chillaxin' at a quiet look spot under a palm.

If you get a burst of energy, there are watersports galore.

No wristbands. They are pesky, cumbersome and no one likes to be branded.

It's environmentally conscious & works with "EcoServices Dominicana" to recycle.

Dominican Tianguis - a market where you can buy locally made handicrafts, arts and jewelry.

You'll have full access to all amenities at Now Larimar.

 

What We'd Change

You won't be able to see the beach or the ocean from your room, but being a bit off the beach creates a tranquil oasis, especially with tropical vegetation surrounding you.

 

Why You Should Go

It's 30 minutes from the airport - your beachtastic escape will start before you know it.

The gigantic screen that they set up on the beach makes for a fun movie night under the stars.

Take a boat to Isla Saona, a stunning island with turquoise waters, limestone cliffs & dolphins.

Interested in snorkeling or diving? If so, Isla Catalina is the perfect spot.

Not far away from Isla Catalina are exquisite corals. Take the plunge.

If you've got the kids and want a babysitter, it will only cost you $10 an hour.

At Now Larimar, the spa includes outdoor rain showers and a waterfall pool.

The hydrotherapy circuit. You'll love taking a "water journey" - it's epic.

You'll find championship golf courses nearby - the concierge will hook you up.
