Quiet, pleasant.

Posted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: Clean, good staff, nice restaurant, located but not on a beach, inexpensive rates that can be customized in conjunction with the neighboring resort.
Cons: We thought the bed in the room was too firm.
Location: Pool, beach access, taxis at a flat rate. Bone up on basic Spanish and have cash.
We went for our honeymoon and everything went very smoothly. The staff was knowledgable and friendly, and did their best even when there was a language barrier.

Worth the buck

Posted May 10, 2014
I stayed 4 days at NH. I was able to check in early and my room was ready. My room had the view of the other resort as I have requested. The room is very clean, AC works great, adequate cable channels. Buffet breakfast is adequate but the food was cold even when I went at 7 am. They can make fried eggs, omelette upon request. There's no ice machine on the floors and I had to wait 10 mins for them to bring ice. The main hallway on my floor is dark as you get off the elevator. They provide you with clean towels everyday but they forgot to replenish the washcloth. Guests have access to the beach and pool at the adjacent resort. Overall the staff are friendly and helpful. This hotel is worth the buck.

Nice location for our needs.

Posted Apr 2, 2014
Pros: It was close to all the things we were planning on doing.
Cons: Put carpet in rooms and hallways.
The staff was very nice. Breakfast was excellent. The access to the resort next door is definitely a plus.

Not what I expected

Posted Mar 19, 2014
Pros: The spa was reasonably priced and close resort with easy access to pools, beach, gift shop, and more importantly a free shuttle to the area malls
Cons: There should be a greater variety of food on the menu as well as a section translated to English. Add a small gift shop or vending machine.
When departing the airport, I learned that NH was under new managment and changed names to Now Larimar which made it difficult to explain my destination to the taxi driver. The information desks at the airport informed us of this and I was still uncertain of whether or not I would make it to the correct hotel. Upon arrival to the hotel, the front desk clerk did not acknowledge me and was not helpful. She didn't explain what was required of me to check in. I handed her my passport in which she made a copy of and gave back to me. I'm still not certain why/if she needed a copy. I don't recall any other international hotels making copies. She then gave me my room key and did not explain how to get there, I had to ask her. At minimum, the desk clerk should have given me a brief overview of the hotel, it's not like anyone was wainting in line behind me. The information from three separate desk clerks were inconsistent in regards to the use of the resort next door. I didn't learn until the day before I left that I could go there, I was previously informaed a needed to purchase an all- inclusive package and recieve a wrist- band. The housekeepers never replaced my face towel the entire stay, the floors were dirty when I arrived and throughout my stay. Gym was small. The spa services and staff were really nice. The hotel is a nice for guests who plan to be away all day and return just for sleep. There were not many places to sit and relax.

Nice but not for me.

Room nice and clean but echoed badly especially in the hall heard alot of doors banging through out the night. No pool on sight but next door at the resort. A walk to the beach but worth it.

Great value

Posted Feb 27, 2014
Pros: clean, modern, friendly, price
Cons: A door or curtain for the bathroom, since it is open to the room. Not sure if it was just our room (101). More places to hang a used towel/swim suit.
Location: We did not venture out of the hotel other than for excursions and to go to Now Larimar. We wished there were more local places within walking distance
My gf and I had a 4 night stay here and we had a very nice time. The place was very modern and the staff was very friendly. GIven the price and the abilities to use Now Larimar's facilities (extra charge) it was an excellent value overall and would definitely stay here again. Perfect for us because half the days of our vacation were spent on excursions when we didn't want to pay for all inclusive rates. Our safe had a dead battery and they promptly fixed it. Breakfast was average to good... you can have eggs made to order if you want. WiFi is free and worked fine.

Affordable hotel close to the beach

Posted Jan 28, 2014
Pros: Simplicity, cleanness, everything new.
Cons: Information about services
Location: Not many options if you're not in one of the hotels or resorts.
It was as good as we expected. We're looking for something affordable close to the beach without "all inclusive", since we would be paying for something that we didn't want or need. By using a pass to NOW Larimar resort we were able to use only the pool, getting towels and chairs to be on the beach. And the best was the access to the beach which you don't have many option if you're not in one of the resorts. Public beach is practically impossible in Punta Cana.
