Relaxing family vacation

Just back from Now Larimar and had a great time! The hotel may lack grandeur and wow effect of some larger properties in Mexico but in terms of actual amenities and service it holds up well. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Requested a quiet room and got one just on a border between regular and privileged sections in Bavaro building. Was quiet indeed, and got a separate bed for the child as requested. But if you really want some peace then Garden View section is like a tiny resort on its own where I think there are no activities whatsoever. Very serene :) Grounds are well kept. You can walk all the way from the rooms to restaurants and lobby in covered walkways avoiding scorching sun. There is a nice little plaza where they have nightly entertainment, a few shops and even a dedicated coffee shop with assortment of snacks and desserts. Lobby bar is quite pleasant. Good pools and a great beach. Reading the previous reviews I expected worse as weeds go, but they aren't really too bad. It is mostly like patches of fine seaweed mulch floating on the surface. They did not bother us. Some days appear worse than others though. The beach is constantly cleaned. Main buffet is not very large, but we found food very good, though maybe on a salty side a bit. They have great stews, very homely tasting. Good pizza. Decent house wines, primarily Spanish. Definitely better than in some other resorts. You don't have to book a la carte restaurants there with the exception of Japanese one. So went to Mexican once - it was good, but nothing spectacular. Can especially commend on staff and service in Larimar. All requests were addressed promptly, and they called a couple times to just check whether we need anything else. Waiters are constantly doing rounds at the pools and on the beach. Many drinks though are pre-mixed from concentrate and were way too sweet for me.

This review is a long overdue. We stayed at the resort in mid-December and as other reviews stated the hotel is filled with locals on the weekends. This brought about our CONS: we did not receive the rooms that we reserved (3 total rooms). The resort is combining both Now Gardens and Now Larimar into one resort. One room in our party was to have a tropical view, but were actually given a room in Now Gardens. An extra fee had to be paid to move into the same building as the other 2 reservations. We booked our trip through UVC, so the second room goof up is not the fault of the hotel, except that it was overbooked and we arrived late, so we didn't get two ocean view rooms with king beds. Octavio in UVC was rude and after 2 days of breaking promises to get us the correct rooms, we went to the hotel front desk—thankfully Eddy at the front desk took care of us and finally after 2 1/2 days we were settled. As a UVC member we are to receive some perks, but Octavio never delivered any of our perks, nor did anyone else from UVC try to help us out. The UVC staff needs to be polite and courteous—I have been to 5 other Amstar resorts and they have all been great. This staff is truly unprofessional—this does not represent the hotel staff—only the UVC staff. Another CON is that there are quite a few perks for preferred club members, including a restaurant and 2 pools. I would suggest getting the more expensive preferred club rooms. Also the beach chairs were in sad shape; most had rips and weren't up to the quality that I would expect from an Amstar resort. PROS: pool service was amazing...tip and you will be well taken care of. Also the pool bar service from the pool was great. Enrique went out of his way to provide drinks. The food at the restaurants we good, don't be afraid to try to entries as some portions are small. The wait time was generally about 30 minutes, but that was fine as waitresses were in plaza outside the restaurants serving drinks. The beach was beautiful. We did have two days were there were some weeds, but after that you could swim in warm, turquoise waters. The pools were chilly, so we spent a lot of time in the ocean. The beach was perfectly safe to take walks during the day, but beware of too many people selling things. We walked almost every day and I would state that this resort has a prime location on the beach. To the north the beach is undergoing extensive work and people at those resort don't have access to the beach. The grounds are spotless, which does make up for some of the cons that I mentioned. I don't think we will be back to this hotel, but if you want an inexpensive vacation on a beautiful beach—this is the place.

Great winter beach vacation

We just returned from a week at this resort. Long story short: a great time. Excellent room: suite facing beach with terrace with jacuzzi on terrace and in 1 of 2 bathrooms. Lovely white sand beach (though swim area is a bit small for serious swimmers). Plenty of beach chairs -- even though guests do not honor the sign asking them not to leave towels to reserve chairs not currently in use. Well-trained, polite staff -- yes, of course: they have a script. But they could not be kinder or more solicitous. Even when confronted by the occasional entitled, self-absorbed guest, they respond with perfect calm and politeness. Waiters on beach and in restaurants respond to your wishes as soon as you have formed them. Food? Better than average for a resort. The theme restaurants are ok, but why go to a US-style diner/steak house when the buffet offers local food? Fresh ceviches, stewed goat, cassava, plantain -- and yes, plenty for for picky kids of all ages. Pools: lovely. Entertainment: walk to the neighboring Secrets for better music. I would prefer shows not to start at 9:30. Too late for me, and even for my college-aged kid. Spa: excellent service and very enjoyable hydrotherapy area. The staff no doubt are helped by public thank yous, and I wish I could remember more names: the hostesses at the outdoor and indoor buffets; the housekeeper, the prompt bellmen, the unflappable beach waiters. Some few names stand out: Cesar (Preferred Members concierge); Juan Manuel (head registrar); Emmanuel (hydrotherapy guide [tell him hello from the gray-haired lady who loved the cold plunge pool]). Full disclosure: we joined the Unlimited Vacation Club last year, and this was our second trip.

Beach and water is beautiful. The place is very clean and the staff is very nice and helpful. Activity people are supper energetic and would get the party started. We had fun in the disco. My kids had fun playing beach volleyball. None of us got sick from the water, Yeah! We went on a dive and really enjoyed the wreak dive. The down sides. the lounge chairs were ripped, sagging, uncomfortable. Drinks were weak and really not that good. Spent the day trying different drinks to find something drinkable. Pina Colada and strawberry daiquiri were great Food was ok, it would have been better if it was hot. It usually was just lukewarm. The sales force were pushy, kept trying to convince you to sit down for one of their talks. They did take no for an answer and were nice about it. I wanted to do a late check out and there was a $20 an hour charge. I had to go and check out of the room and re check into it and then check out again for the extra time I spent in the room. It was 20 minutes of the 2 hours I had requested wasted. I could not understand why I couldn't just check out once later. I was fairly annoyed. Not sure if I would return to this resort. I don't expect wows from an all inclusive but was hoping for very good and didn't get it.
