Now Garden is small and quiet for the most part. We had a swim up room (rooms very small and no drawers, beds and pillows okay, bedding nice, tv and remote did not work well and was a source of frustration) which provides a patio with two lounge chairs and a table and two chairs. The jacuzzi tub on the patio was not used as we spent the day in the pool which was clean except for the worms (?) on the sides and bottom. The swim up bar staff were good but the drinks were hit and miss and where never consistent. We had Pina Coladas that where great one day and horrible the next. Tried ordering Mimosas but the champagne was always flat so gave up. There is a BBQ by the pool everyday which is very good, chicken, fries, guacamole excellent! The draft beer was very enjoyable as well. We ate at Capers most of the time, the best part about Capers is the setting and that you’re able to eat outside. Breakfast was good, coffee not so much as there is no cream at this resort. Dinner items, again some good some terrible, the red wine being the worst. The staff, again some very nice and some not so much. The front reception was not very welcoming when we arrived, somewhat apathetic. After we were given our room keys etc and started heading for our room one of the staff approached and grabbed the folder with our room keys, towel cards etc., right out of may hand and led us to the “concierge” to get our “free gift” ie commit to time share meeting. We promptly refused. The air conditioning worked very well which is good because unless your room is freezing your bed will get damp and everything musty. The one A La Carte we went to at Now Larimar was ok, we liked the Grouper and the Rib Eye Steak was good (Blue Water Grill). The biggest disappointment at this resort is the beach. Yes it is wide, long with lovely white powder sand but the seaweed was horrendous, so much so that not only could you not swim you couldn’t even walk in the water. The resort worked non-stop all week. So if you sat at the beach you can watch and listen to a tractor and dump truck all day and smell their fumes and the stench of the seaweed. All of this non-stop work made NO difference whatsoever. So if and when you’re booking this resort and you ask about the seaweed don’t believe them if they tell you they clean it. They can’t it’s impossible and one of the staff told us it’s been like this for the past six months, at least. Had we known this we would never have booked this resort, as we specifically choose Punta Cana for Bavaro Beach. Needless to say we never went near the ocean all week which was a huge disappointment! When you do walk on the beach you are constantly bothered by vendors, they yell at you and approach constantly which was very annoying and quite frankly made it impossible to enjoy your walk. We had read about this before our trip on Trip Advisor and thought “how bad can it be”? We won’t be back to Punta Cana anytime soon. There was one wedding at the resort and we were very impressed by the setup, it was very nice how they set up the ceremony space and reception on the beach at night with the lights etc., and there was a musician playing electric violin which was amazing.

Another great trip

I was a little worried at first because I typically prefer Mexico and if I'm going to punta Cana I was partial to breathless and now onyx....the price for a swim out at now garden was great so I took it.. it was sooooo amazing. I was near the lobby so I would visit the lobby bar and what a great time it was Hensel makes the best drinks. Plus the staff up front made it fun Jaime Julio and Eve at check in could not have been more wonderful and the employees all over made it fantastic! I did visit now larimar for shows and for restaurants and it was great there too I was not a fan of the swim up bar but we just went back to now garden and they knew how to take care of us....can't wait to come back

Awesome place, small quiet and relaxing.

Beautiful resort, unlimited dinner restaurants which are shared with Now Laramar (which is a 60 second shuttle ride away). Never had to make a reservation and never had to wait to be seated. Awesome food quality, the breakfast buffet was really good, it had lots of fresh fruit and everything you can ask for for a breakfast, the omelet station was the best! The resort was very quiet and very relaxing, I would highly recommend it, and i would definitely go again. My only Con's were: 1. They pretty much force you to sit through a stupid time share meeting where they push you to buy a timeshare at their family of resorts. This is the same crap that every resort does, but i just find it annoying that they hound you to do something you have no intention of doing in the first place (even after you repeatedly tell them). 2. The swim up pool bar had an upstairs bar connected to the pool bar, there was often only 1 bartender and getting a drink in the pool was quite difficult and time consuming as they had to walk to the upstairs bar to make your drink. PRO TIP: Bring a large Contingo container with you so you don't have to fill up as often (the ones that stay cold for 12 hours are great in the tropical sun)

A Great Honeymoon

My new husband and I stayed at NOW Garden from 6-4- 6-11-18. We fully enjoyed our trip. The rooms are a little small and don't have a ton of storage. We really liked that GARDEN is much more quiet and we were able to relax for a few days. Our poolside bartender Merfin was amazing and went above and beyond to make sure we were well hydrated! : ) . The food at the poolside BBQ was horrible. The hamburgers were way undercooked. But the lunch buffets were well worth it down at Larimar. The restaurants were amazing and we couldn't have asked for better service! The lounge bartender Juan was GREAT! we enjoyed sitting with him before our evening dinners. We loved the entertainment group, including Mr. Superman! Larimar puts on evening shows everynight and we were treated amazing by our server Joanna every night! All of the servers were great-! We will definitely be back! Our honeymoon was perfect!

Arrived at Now Garden I asked to have my daughter who has special needs room be next to mine they said Destination Weddings never informed them ahead of time . They had her in the other building after saying that’s to far they put her 10 doors down from us they had nothing together that day the next day they moved both of us so we could be next to each other. We went down to see about upgrading to the other hotel Now Larimar where my son was at a extra cost but we stayed where we were because we thought it was a good room until we came back to our room at 1:00 am the air conditioner made noise all night the toilet took 4 flushes before all contents went down and a huge cockroach was on my floor I took pics and picked it up took it downstairs oh yeah the bed on the right side is messed up.. At 9:00 am they said they tried calling me several times but they couldn’t hear me so I went downstairs and they said we can’t move you again there is no rooms available at Now Gardens or Larimar they are fully over booked and the other excuse was if we move you and the next room have the same problem what are we to do we can’t move you everyday wow so to me that means you have a problem with cockroaches . Then he says what do you want me to do like both days were my fault my special needs daughter wasn’t comfortable being far from me and the next day a cockroach what I wanted him to do was change my room not say they are going to exterminate it which they never did , not say both hotels are all of a sudden fully booked. When I was paying for the upgrade they had rooms now they don’t . I was crying they ruined what started out as a perfect vacay and please save your response Now Garden because you had a chance to make this right and you didn’t your attitude changed from being very nice to me to being very rude for something that wasn’t my fault. My phone never worked I had to use my daughters , air condition made noise , the exterminator came 29 hrs after complaint and because my husband was sleep they said they would be back in a hour and they never came back . They put a card in my room said we was to receive a bottle of champagne I went downstairs because I couldn’t understand what the lady on my daughters phone because mine never worked . Neither one of us received our champagne oh yeah no iron in my room either . Pros : after all the complaints and no results they put rose petals on my bed at night .The only good food at Nows Garden was at the pool area the grilled chicken was so good the other restaurants wasn’t good at all . You get to go to the sister hotel Nows Larimar the food at the restaurants was good the entertainment there was good and they have a very nice nightclub . Just beware of the outside vendors selling tours they are rude and over priced I was surprised the hotel let them come on there property.
