Amazing! Amazing! Amazing!

Did I say this place was amazing? We did the upgrade, and while I believe the resort would have been fabulous without it, I believe that Preferred Club gave it that extra edge. Food- to die for...I always expect buffet mediocre. We did eat at the buffet every meal except two...we were always starving and didn't want to wait. The buffet was killer. We had some issues...the kids' room had a broken shower and they had to get a new room. They ended up w a suite and a better view than our room. Our safe deposit box needed a new battery. Maintenance had it fixed in less than 30 minutes. As long as you know that in real life, stuff breaks, you'll have the time of your life. The best part of the whole resort was the people...from the luggage guys to our amazing butler Manuel, everyone was incredibly friendly. And I'm a "difficult" person w high friends tip extra because I always order off menu and want things "just so". They've named it the 'Adriene tax'. Summer can't get here fast enough!!! We're definitely going back!

Our 20th Wedding Anniversary

My husband and I went to Dominican Republic, Punta Cana for our 20th Wedding Anniversary. We stayed at the Now Larimar resort. Everyone was so nice and welcoming as soon as we landed all the way to our hotel door that had a big banner going across the door that read "HAPPY ANNIVERSARY", which was a nice surprise! The resort was clean and beautiful! The landscaping was amazing. We got to know some of the staff pretty quick and they were ALWAYS warm, friendly and accommodating to what ever we needed! There are activities you can partake in outside of the resort. We LOVED the buggy ride...that was so much fun and a memorable experience!

Fun in the Sun

Where to start? I think the best way to approach this is by category. Value: We tweaked the date reservation and flights to suit our budget. We found flying from Wilmington, NC instead of Myrtle Beach, SC (an hour and a half drive) saved us $150 per person. Preferred Option: Definitely the way to go if you can afford it, the room was better, but the restaurant options are out of this world. Plus you get to hang out at the better private pools all day! Service: The staff at Now Larimar are among some of the most helpful individuals on the planet. I have been to many restaurants stateside and only some meet the quality and courtesy of that at this resort. Beach & Pools: O.k. so the beach is a beach and there's going to be sea grass washed up. I don't need to go into much about that, except that the staff are out there before daybreak running the sand rake to do their best to remove most. The pools are fabulous, well maintained and great fun with the pool parties! As I mentioned before, the preferred pools are more private with better service but if you want to get down and have a bunch of fun with the kids, visit the large pool!! Dining Options: Now Larimar have really covered about all the options for dining, something for everyone. I have 2 young children and they seemed to be the happiest at the buffet because they just don't want to wait for food at the other "Menu" restaurants. That being said, we tried all the other restaurants out and each one offered a great meal and service. The breakfast at the carnival buffet was the only option I'm aware of, great food and more choice than you'll ever want. Room Comfort: I only gave this a 3 star, simply because the spa tub had a serious leak more than likely from the hoses that supply the jets. We did put a call into the front desk about this, but I really don't think that anything was done about it. This really didn't bother me too much because i'm a hot shower kind of guy anyway. The cleaning staff were very friendly and efficient, although their English wasn't the best (or my Spanish wasn't good!!!) Many people have been complaining about the smell in the rooms. Not much to worry about really. I'm sure a lot of it has to do with the narrow gauge sewer plumbing, but the idea is to be outside on your vacation anyhoo! The only thing that really irritated me about the room was the digital clock. I should have in hindsight double checked with my phone, but being a trusting soul, set my wristwatch to the room clock...bad mistake. The following day we were due to go on an excursion, but due to the error, we missed it and had to reschedule. My son had a double ear infection and couldn't go anyway so we managed to get a refund after a lot of wrangling. Well, my son's ear infection only got worse and spiked a fever, so we had to take him to the doctor on the resort. They told us that he could not fly, due to the air pressure on the plane could cause a bleed internally and damage his hearing. Not a good thing to hear when the flight home was in 48hrs! After a long conversation with the staff at we managed to get in touch with Delta airlines who very kindly rescheduled my wife's and son's flights for 2 days later for free!!!!. My daughter and I flew home on the original dates because the flights were fully booked as it was Christmas time. I didn't mind doing this because my wife is a seasoned flier! Now Larimar also kindly gave us a reduced rate on the same room and preferred status for the additional nights accomodation. I have to thank the staff from all the different parties involved in this little fiasco, they really pulled together to get us all home safely. We will definitely use cheapcaribbean again. Thanks you for a memorable vacation!!!

Christmas Vaca

Overall a good place to vacation. Great pools, ocean was bad. It was too windy stirring up debris. Beach was okay except for the the wind. Excellent staff. Friendly & very helpful. Tip them for best service. Food good to excellent. Use the buffet it's quick with many choices and it's casual. Drinks flow freely on demand. Rooms clean & comfortable. Beware the "card" device that keeps the power on in the room. It can be a nuisance. Ours broke twice. Was fix quickly though. Why is it there? Avoid the "time share" peddlers. Unless you are in the market. Fun place to relax & be pampered....
