Great Getaway for the money!

Awesome place all around and you get SO MUCH for your money! Access to two resorts, SO MANY great restaurants and buffets, so much to do or simply relaxing by the pool/beach, access to the beach, bars everywhere, everyone's so helpful and makes your entire experience, every day, seem special! Accommodations without even asking for them, the little things that go a long way! The list really goes on and on! Highly recommended!!

My wife and I stayed at Now Garden recently. I wish I could say that the stay was a pleasant one. We stayed in a room called the Deluxe Garden Suite. The picture online of that same room had a second story view overlooking the pool. Our actual room was facing a private garden (not what we had in mind). When I inquired about our room and the view, the person at the desk said that what I looked at online was the Deluxe Pool View (an additional $30 per night). I let it go for a while, but for what we paid, I figured I would give it another try. So, I brought up the picture online and showed the concierge. He agreed that I was correct and that was indeed the room that I should have. He still insisted that we pay the $30 per night for the Deluxe Pool View?! Then he simply played dumb and hid behind his limited English and simply dismissed our concern. I would not recommend this resort to anyone. It's big brother resort, Now Larimar is 4 blocks away, closer to the beach, restaurants and other amenities. I see no good reason to stay at Now Garden that only has 1 pool and 1 restauant. We found the staff at Larimar to be more friendly and eager to help. Not to mention that Now Garden is about a 10 to 12 minute walk to the beach!. If not for having access to Larimar, this would have been the worst vacation ever!

Comfortable stay and very friendly staff

It's a very beautiful resort. We loved our room and it was great having so many options to dine. Now Garden is a bit away from the beach, but luckily they have a little car that will drive you there. They have many actives at the beach and pool area through out the day, so it made things very fun. Great first trip to DR :)

What's to Love

As of June 2018 you can bring your furry friend along!

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.
