A step below other AM resorts we have traveled to in Mexico

We booked the Now Garden because of positive experience with Dreams and Secrets resorts. The Garden is an extension of Now Larimar, but further from the beach. We went for the upgrade walk out room. The pool was right in front of our patio. The room itself was fine but the lighting was not bright enough. As a Now Garden guest you can use all the facilities at the Larimar which is much larger. Comments apply to both. All staff at both resorts were very friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurants was good and the French restaurant was very good. The Blue Water grill not so good. We found the house white wine to be awful but we could drink the red. Bars were just ok. The service was great but most of the tropical drinks were prepared with pre-made slush. Yuck. Every night there was entertainment in the square at Larimar. The beach was phenomenal however there were a lot of very persistent vendors. We did not leave the resort except to go to dinner at another AM resort - Sunscape Bavaro. We booked the visit through the desk. People at our resort and at Sunscape seemed surprised we would want to visit there as it is one step below the Now brand. Sunscape was gigantic, noisy and definitely a lower quality brand. We won't be booking a Sunscape resort in future. One thing about Now that was annoying to us was the number of spaces reserved for "preferred club". The only restaurant that was open air on the beach was reserved for those who paid more as were two pools and part of the beach area.

Great Time Away

Pretty sure it’s my 4th trip to Punta Cana. The resort itself has been a good time. No complaints on the staff, they are all wonderful. Ronnie at the garden bar, “Mr Wonderful” in the Italian restaurant. Our terrific room maids and room fridge team! All 5 ⭐️ s. Spent every other day on the Larimar side. Good times there too. My only complaints would be the alcohol at the beach bar and pool bar! Yuck on the drinks. They really do suck. Worst probably in any resort I’ve ever been to. Never went to a show. All the food was decent and good. None of our group got ill or anything. The food was okay, nothing was like “I want more”. I will say the 3 best foods I ate were the room service pizza on the Garden side, the chicken at the grill on the beach and the popcorn in the sports bar. 6 out of 8 of us stayed at Larimar but enjoyed the pool and service on the Garden side better. Would come back if I see that reflected in future reviews because this place has really really spectacular potential if a little investment goes into to it to improve on drinks, food, and new outdoor beach/pool chairs. Don’t change the staff because they are just perfect. Special honourable mention goes to Marcelino, and Yasmarni at the Larimar beach for helping keep our friend happy with “Coors Lite”. This brings me to my last suggestion. Why don’t you just charge someone like an extra $100 each a week to get the good drinks? Simple, problem solved, this would have saved staff and people a lot of unnecessary aggravation.

Terrible value for money!

Horrible value for money. For half of the price it would still be a very bad deal. Service is just terrible, no one delivers what you ask for, no one even know anything about the hotel. You can't have what you want (e.g., I wanted coconut water from dozens of coconuts that were behind the kiosk at the beach but was told that it would only be available in a couple of hours - hours turned into days and I never had any coconut). When you ask to speak with management, staff will tell you that they can't call management and can't even tell you their names - SO SHADY! Food is so bad and looks and tastes so cheap it's ridiculous. They tell you you have an appointment for japanese food and serve THAI food and then lie to your face saying it's "a new type of Japanese" (later admitting it was really Thai). Crazy! Drinks are completely watered down to the point I could not manage to feel tipsy at any point after drinking lots of drinks (and this is from someone who has very very low alcohol resistance). One of the worst things about the hotel is the bathroom being openly connected with the room - one cubicle for the toilet and another for the shower, all visible from the bed. And doors wouldn't work properly. Insane! When I asked for a receipt in the end of my stay they printed a half baked piece of paper with half a dozen line items (like a white piece of paper that looks like it came from an improvised word document) and told me that was the best they could do. Punta Cana as a whole was such a touristy trap but this place makes it all so so so much worse. Do yourself a favor and stay either in a decent resort or at the airport hotel (I did that the last day and it was a lot more enjoyable than that "resort").

Entertainment

It was excellent service, great people, the food was great! The room was nice and clean, the bar service and drinks were great, Arismendy, Ronnie and Mertin. The barbecque Guy was also great. The pool was clean. The resort could use more restaurants and places to eat! Mr. SuperMan was great, very friendly! The show wasn’t the best!
