Mixed feelings

I had to wait three hours before my room was ready then we were put in a room with a King Bed. I told them multiple times we needed two double beds so after the three hours at 6 pm at last our room was ready. Our Butler Luis kept apologizing but it was not his fault. The food to us is just fair. We have a very nice waiter at Blue Water Grill that stepped it up to make our food warmer and better tasting. His Name is Jairo and he understands English well which helps when ordering and getting what you order. The Plaza is too closed in for the shows and not enough seats. The bartender Antonio at The Sand Bar is very entertaining. The Ocean is beautiful. I would stay away from any offers that you have to go meet the staff .

Great service!

fun environment; good to great food (5-6 restaurants); 3 pools with several activities; great beach with activities; evening entertainment by the restaurants. Our nice size room was clean and comfortable. when you make your reservation make sure you note exactly how many people. Even though I had "modified" our reservation to include both of our names I had to pay more, which was annoying.

Fantastic resort and great staff

We stayed in Now Larimar for a friend's birthday week and very glad we did. The resort is stunning and the staff were really welcoming and friendly which really made a difference. Thanks to Richardson in the restaurant who really went out of his way to accommodate us. Thanks to Roberto was very helpful and accommodating especially when we had to keep changing excursions due to illness. And thanks to Reyes at front desk who was very helpful to us on arrival and assisting us with organising taxis.

First time all inclusive and it was disappointing

We booked the Now Larimar in Punta Cana through a travel agent that worked with Apple Vacations. Once at the the resort we did upgrade to Preferred Club for $500 for the 7 nights we were there but no ocean view which was disappointing. Although Preferred Club is much better as you do have your own lounge in the same building of the rooms, and Ronny was just the best bartender there and knew how to make a Ron Punch (even though we kept saying rum punch), you also have closer access to the preferred pool and the beach. But other than that I didn't feel the upgrade was worth it. We were taken to our room upon arrival by Davis who was an outstanding concierge. our room had been fully stocked with 3 full bottles of alcohol and a completed bar set up along with a fruit plate. This was meant for another guest, but since they didn't like the room the staff failed to tear down the set-up and Davis said we could enjoy it and he wouldn't charge us for it since it was there mistake. Our room was a king size bed which was comfortable and we had a small jacuzzi tub on the balcony which we never used. The AC in the room was not regulated to cool the room and take the dampness out. The room had a ceiling fan which we kept on and I also brought along with me 2 portable battery operated fans which helped while sleeping. The bathroom did not have any ventilation which was hot all the while we were there. Definitely need a ceiling fan in there but the portable fans I brought helped while getting ready in the morning. I thought the pools were fairly clean and when not at the preferred pool we were told we could only have 1 towel per person which was odd. At the preferred pool we had no issue so we usually were in that area of the resort. There was one exceptional waitress at the preferred pool which she understood English very well and always brought us the right mix of our drinks. She was a little older and always wore a blue shirt with white pants and she had glasses on. the other waitress did not understand English very well so we just waited for the other gal to come by to bring our drinks. The biggest disappointed of the resort was the food. Not consistent in flavor and lack of flavor for many of the dishes. The portion sizes at the restaurants were extremely small except at the Hibachi restaurant called Spice and the flavor was the best on the resort. We ate the Barefoot grill, Castaways, Blue Water Grill, Spice, The italian restaurant at Now Garden, Carnival Buffet, and Tarimundo. The Blue Water grill was OK as I had the teriyaki salmon, but again small portion and the entire bottle of teriyaki was poured on top! So it definitely had flavor! My partner had the flank steak and it was good except the pico they put on top which ruined the middle portion as the flavor just tasted like onions. Oh and the mozzarella sticks are just 2 pieces of really bad fired mozzarella cheese with no breading and the shrimp potato skins are just one skin with no shrimp. We went to the Moments lounge but I have to say every drink they made was awful. So not sure why, but I tried the Ron Punch and some other drink on their menu and both were bad. Ronny from Preferred lounge needs to teach them how to make drinks. They didn't have Malibu Rum at that bar so i could get my usual Malibu and Diet coke. but i enjoyed that at the preferred pool and lounge. Once positive thing about Moments was the AC....it actually worked! It was the only place on the resort where I felt comfortable instead of wet and clammy. We did try out the tiny casino 2 nights, but it was so hot in there we couldn't stay but a 1/2 hour. Even the workers agreed it was HOT! I did not like the pushy staff wanting you to go to the vacation tour/timeshare thing even though Jonas said it wasn't a timeshare, but I knew better. Everytime he would see us he would harass us to attend and we didn't want to. Also Wilkinson at Carnival Buffet was also trying to get us to do a TripAdvisor review. Yes I'll do one but not while on vacation when i get home please and stop asking every morning. The best part of the whole experience was our friend's wedding. From the wedding planner to the ceremony to the reception everything was just beautiful! The food was exceptional and didn't understand why that food/flavor was not available in the resort at the various restaurants. I was thoroughly impressed with the wait staff as well for the wedding. Just outstanding service! Would I return to Now Larimar? No I would not unless they had some major room updates to this 10 year old property and fixed the AC inside the rooms, and improved on their food selections and flavors. For the price I paid I was disappointed and would not return. Punta Cana is beautiful and would definitely try another resort.
