Destination Wedding
811heatherd, Toronto, Canada
Thu Aug 17 12:05:44 EDT 2017
As frequent travellers, we struggled finding a resort to accommodate our guests who would be coming for our destination wedding. We were looking for something clean, with good food, lots of entertainment, a great beach, and of course one that does a great job at destination weddings. When travelling on our own, we typically spend a bit more then we did with Now Larimar, but because we had guests coming with us, we kept it at an affordable rate for everyone. When reading reviews on this resort before we went, I always try to ignore the negative reviews because many people often go down there looking for things to complain about. When writing this review, please know that I am not one of those people. I'm simply sharing my experience in hopes to help others decide on their next destination. I would say overall, this resort is decent. It was suitable for a destination wedding but having gone to other destination weddings in Punta Cana, it could definitely have been better. We were very shocked by how many children were at the resort. We do not mind children however, we would have preferred a resort with less of a cater to children. This is something we should have looked into before choosing Now Larimar. It is very family friendly. Not the best place for anyone wanting a break from them. CHECK-IN/PREFERRED CLUB Arrival at the resort went smoothly. As the bride and groom, we were immediately upgraded to the preferred club, as were my parents. If you are wondering whether to spend the extra for preferred club, I would say don't waste your money. The only perk worth using is the Castaways restaurant, which we only went to once in the 11 days we were there. Our guests weren't preferred so it didn't make sense to use it without them. We all thought it was ridiculous that the castaway restaurant is limited to preferred guests when its right beside the pool and on the beach. As a preferred guest, you get access to two "private pools". These are not private at all. Preferred club guests do not wear wristbands, so anyone can go into these pools at anytime. We never used them because they were so packed with children that the idea of a "relaxing private pool" was not an option. Essentially, preferred guests are never asked to prove that they are preferred so honestly, anyone can get away with the same perks even without paying for the upgrade. The preferred room was also basic. There was nothing special about it at all. It was just like a basic hotel room you would find in any of your cities. The bed however is very comfortable! SERVICE The staff work very hard and are very friendly. No matter where you go, they are kind and offer to lend a hand. THE BEACH The beach at this hotel is beautiful. The chairs in the regular area are often taken early. You might as well walk to the preferred club beach and use their chairs as no one will check if you are upgraded or not. The servers work very hard at the beach and do a wonderful job. There is also seaweed along the beach but the workers do a great job getting rid of it during the day. The one thing that was really annoying is that this resort is beside a "shopping centre". There are about 10 guys who sit on a log waiting for you to walk down the beach. They approach you one at a time and try to talk you into going into this shopping centre. We said no multiple times and they kept pushing for us to go. We learned not to go down that side of the beach after a few of those encounters. THE POOLS The main pool is fine. Lots of chairs, lots of space for everyone. The two private pools aren't worth your time. Too many children, no chairs available, too many people. There is a kids pool but it is more like a large puddle that no one uses. ENTERTAINMENT When choosing this resort, we were excited by all of the great reviews about the entertainment. We were expecting a lot of action around the pool throughout the day, at the beach and into the evening. We were surprisingly shocked as we noticed little entertainment happening at all. As frequent travellers, we often compare these things to other resorts we've been to and the entertainment here is little to none compared to other places. We were hoping for lots of action around the pool. There may have been one or two activities daily but they were not very good. The nighttime entertainment was decent. It was nice having a band in the courtyard in the evening. RESTAURANTS These were fairly good. We were expecting them to be more strict about dress code but they were very laid back. We liked this as it was way too hot for men to be wearing pants in the evening. The french restaurant is the only one you need to dress up for. The staff at the restaurants work very hard and do a great job. The food was fairly good. The buffet was nice. It is your typical resort buffet with anything and everything you need. We didn't mind the food here at all. There was always lots to choose from and they replaced the food as soon as it was running low. We loved the fresh pressed juice available! WEDDING We were very happy with our wedding! I was a bit nervous because my wedding coordinator went on a sick leave and our wedding was passed onto someone else. Everything turned out better then we hoped! The one thing Now Larimar knows how to do is organize a wedding. It is obvious that they do this multiple times a day. The wedding coordinators are very relaxed and reassure you that everything will be taken care of, and it was. The ladies in the spa did an amazing job! I was so happy with my hair and make up. This was something I was nervous about but I showed them pictures and they did exactly what I asked. The bridal suite was beautiful and well worth the price. The DJ was also worth the money! I was pleasantly happy with the decor set up both on the beach and at the relaxing pool. Everything looked beautiful! Thank you to Luisa for your help during the last year and to Digna for stepping up and being our planner while Luisa was away. The decorations in our room the night of the wedding were gorgeous. Those little touches go a long way, we felt so special. If you are looking for a family friendly resort for a destination wedding, Now Larimar is a good option. If you are looking for something a bit nicer, I would try the Majestic resorts. We have been to two of them for weddings and it is a bit more upscale than this one. Thank you Now Larimar for a wonderful wedding.

Food and drink could be better

I stayed here with my husband and 2 teenage children for 3 weeks commencing 18th July We checked in and our room was very spacious and clean, we requested extra pillows but had to ask on five separate occasions before they actually arrived. Pool /beach The beach was lovely but the loungeers were so cheap and uncomfortable but always plenty of space If you chose to stay there Around the pool there was no umbrellas at all so if you need shade you would have to sit on the beach. The waitress service around the pool was excellent always checking your ok and remembering what you like to drink.(Danielle and Darmary) were the best!! The pool bar was a shame as they opened at 10:00am but you couldn't get a pina colda or any slushy drink to at least 12:00 as they were so watere they need to switch the machine on earlier. They constantly ran out of plastic glasses so you were drinking cocktails out of paper cups !!! Really not 5* It's not the same drinking out of paper cups !! There was a real lack of top shelf labelled dinks which was disappointing Food We had breakfast at the carnival buffet every day, which was ok apart from my son complaining that the crepes and waffles are stone cold as they cook them earlier they just leave them on the side . Who eats cold crepes and pancake?? Service was always good in there Dario And Fraudy very helpful. Lunchtime Very limited choices as you either had to get dressed and walk to the carnival restaurant Or the other choice was a burger or hot dog from the grill. Castaways offered a varied menu with light lunch i.e. Sandwiches and nachos located on very close to the beach with stunning views!, but that was only accessible to preferred club The evening restaurants were ok f you wanted to eat at 6:30pm otherwise they were so busy and poor service and room temperature food. Entertainment At the start of our holiday there were 11 entertainment team but by the end you were lucky if you saw 4 of them !! Skinny boy, Scooby do Happy boy and 50cents all very polite and lots of fun !! Always dancing and chatting with guests. I would not return to this resort as the food and drink really let it down !!

Excellente Trip!

Just got back from a 2 week holiday at the resort with my family. the holiday was brilliant and we all had had such a nice time. don’t believe the negative reviews and try and speak a little Spanish as it will make your trip more enjoyable as the staff really appreciate it. I found every member of staff approachable and happy to speak to you. The Entertainment Team where great and a great bunch of lads. Scooby Doo, Skinny Boy, Happy Boy, Superman, Fifty Cent and Cappuccino are Brilliant. If you get involved in the events they do then you will have a great holiday. All the shows in the evening where great. Make sure you go see them all. The Fire Show on the beach was really good. Darling in the Preferred Team was brilliant when I had an issue and is a credit to this hotel. We did the ParaSailing and Speed Boat Trip that was on offer through the company that provide the water sports (Guys with Red Shirts) All prices are negotiable. For 2 Adults and 2 Kids for ParaSailing we paid $120 and for the Speed Boat Trip paid $200. Probably good to use those prices as a bench mark. Enjoyed all the restaurants, don’t believe the moaning about quality and taste. Make sure you take the walk\golf buggy to the Italian Restaurant to the Now Garden. Pasta there is brill. The Beach does have a lot of Seaweed on it and in the sea. so be warned if you are expecting clear waters and a completely white sandy beach. We just used the Pools mainly. The Big Pool can get busy so be aware of that and sun beds go quick. make sure you get one at 8am. we used the quieter "Preferred" Pool and mixed with some fantastic people. You get to know the people there so quickly and everyone is so polite to each other. Antiono Bandaras the Bar guy there is great. Overall we had a brilliant holiday and i would recommend the hotel to anyone.

Fantastic!

I over all think my expernice was great! Mine and my sisters first time in punta Cana. Every one was so nice and welcoming and I met so many cool people there. Mr. Bernardo was the best we had him as our waiter almost every morning at the carnival buffet.I especially loved the pools and the 9:30 shows although I wish there were some other stuff for kids after those shows! I love Now Larimar and would defenitly stay there again!!!!😄😃😜
