We have visited other resorts before and this one was extremely dissapointing. PLEASE DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY. Resort needed update and renovation. Staff was extremely kind and nice, the best part of the resort. Nothing like what the pictures show. The pictures are from the resort next door, Secrets which was way nicer. Food was bad and alcohol was worst. Drinks tasted too watered down and all the same. Cleaning staff also very kind and did a very nice job. Nightime shows were boring and no pool activities. Nightclub is closed and swim-up bars are closed. Would not recommend at all. Only good thing to eat were burgers by the beach.

Everyone is so nice and go out there way to make sure you have everything you need. Happy and friendly faces everywhere!

The landscaping is beautiful. Every where you go it is picturesque. Nothing i did not like.

Room was stinky. The mattress for the extra bed had springs sticking out.

The food was TERRIBLE! We stuck to the buffet most of the time, after having bad encounters with the food at the Mexican and Italian Restaurant. The beach is COVERED in seaweed. They told us it was because it was the season. I was here two years ago, stayed at a different resort and it was clear of seaweed. The reviews from month prior state the same issues with seaweed. They allow the Beach locals who are trying to sell you things, to walk on the property and enter the PRIVATE members only area and try to sell to you! We were very turned off by this, as we paid the extra money for a more secluded area. Housekeeping didn’t show up one day, even after we called. The weather was fantastic and our company was great (friends) but we will not be back!

I love this resort. We visited for a wedding and had a wonderful vacation. The staff members were very friendly and helpful on a regular. The pools, club, game room, karoke/bar, beach and nightly entertainment had our group going with happiness. The food was ok but a bit more flavor needs to be added to the buffet resturants. Also needs to cater more seafood varities like fish and shrimp at the buffet restaurants. I loved the Japanese resturant especially, the staff treated us with gratitude as we celebrated a few birthdays. The food was delicious there. Everyone was pleased.

Everything was fantastic had a great time the only thing was the water was not that great and smelt a lot

The property is neat and clean and staff was nice.

Disappointed about set up of pick up and quality was poor

Everything was great except for the sports bar. Def needs an update.

We were well taken care of and the hotel staff was very friendly. We had a great trip.

Nice low key resort. one thing to watch out for when your booking is that the deluxe garden view is actually a smaller resort within the compound called the NOW Garden. Its a separate location from the NOW Larimar. It takes about a 5-7 minute walk to get to the NOW Larimar entrance and about a 25 minute walk to the beach. Upset when we first checked it, to upgrade to NOW Larimar closer to beach and restaurants its an extra $50 a night. Food was okay Beach was nice, lots of seaweed though Entertainment was below average

I love it here so much I came back 5 years later and it was just as wonderful.

My wife and I really enjoyed our 10 year anniversary at this resort. Our room was a preferred king suite oceanview and it was amazing. The food and hotel staff were very good. A few things that were dissapointing: at least 65% of people smoke, the peddlers that constantly try to get you to buy something, seaweed in the water. One thing we did not know was that of the 4 main restaurants they have 2 open 2 closed from Sunday through Thursday. We would return to this resort again and or not hesitate to try another NOW property in the future based on our expierience.

Dear guest, We regret that we failed to fully meet your expectation in different aspects of your stay. Your feedback is distant from the experience we mean to provide to our visitors. I´m passing your comments to our Food & Beverage department. On onther note, allow me to clarify that seaweed is a natural situation affecting the Caribbean. This is seasonal, and despite of this we have a team in charge of claining the beach daily. In addition to this, please bear in mind that beaches in the Dominican Republic are public, consequently vendors are allowed to stay in that area, we lament the issues it caused. We hope you enable us to change this unfortunate first impression. Best regards, Bernabel Taveras Hotel Manager
