Hey there. Can anyone tell me if this is an average sized resort compared to others in the area? Google Maps shows it could span as long as .5 miles back in length, which would make it bigger than Melia, but half the amount of rooms. Can anyone shed some light on the size?
 
I've reserved a May 22, 2014 -6pm- beach wedding followed by a beach reception.  I'm still on the fence though as it has been weeks since my travel agent has heard from the resort.  So any info would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks so much!

it is way smaller than melia and overall it is considered one of the smaller ones in the area. Maybe it looks big in google maps because the sister resort secrets royal beach which is adults only is right next to it.

Thank you!  We became confused by the Now Larimar's interactive map (http://www.nowresorts.com/larimar/map.html).  It shows the back rooms by a large lake, and then on Google Maps, the large lake is verrrrrrry far back, it's the area circled in purple. 

700

So if it's just the area in red, then it's the same size as Secrets?  We have some non-mobile adults and young children, a .5 mile walk would not be ok for them.  I'm just so nervous to book without seeing the place! Did you feel that way?

Hey there.  This is the fourth time I've seen thins $5k to reserve a restaurant.   I didnt see this in any material from the resort nor hear about it from my travel agent.  Could you please explain in more detail what this is for?  I put a deposit down for May 22, 2014, beach ceremony and beach restaurant reception.  Thanks!

Hi lisamarco! The $5k is to reserve an entire restaurant for a private reception dinner. The restaurants include Mercure, Castaways, and Capers. This is found on Page 13 of the wedding guide. Since you have a beach reception though, you won't have to pay the $5k fee. I hope this helps!

Oh I just looked at my spreadsheet again that was sent from the WC. Specifically the $5k extra fee is for reserving the Mercure or Tamarindo restaurants. Castaways is only $3K.

Is Castaways the name of the Beach Restaurant?  My travel agent was under the impression that there wouldn't be a fee for the 'beach restaurant' but is becoming more clueless in the process!

I looked at the resort map and Castaways seems to be the closest restaurant to the beach. But the wedding guide says you can have your reception on the actual beach for free....I know it is seems so confusing! I'd double check your Wedding Coordinator to confirm.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
