Laura Beyer   Meet Laura, one of our travel experts for Dominican Republic.


For nearly 5 years I've owned an operated A Change of Latitude Travel. I started from the ground up and have successfully planned and arranged numerous vacations, many of which were honeymoons and 10-12 destination weddings. I am a romantic, so of course, my specialty in the travel world is "Romance Travel" to awesome Caribbean destinations and Mexico. Not looking for romance, that's ok too, just let me know you're interested in traveling to someplace tropical and I'll get you there. I'm an island girl at heart,... give me palm trees, a beach, a good book and plenty of sunshine, at a luxury all inclusive resort and you'll find one content gal. When I'm not working, I enjoy my passion of traveling and learning about new destinations, motorcycle riding, camping and hanging out with my 2 best friends, Molly and Bella (yes, my dogs).

Review:   I had a great trip, and the beaches are beyond beautiful, but this resort should by no means be classified as a 5 star hotel. Overall, the staff is friendly but definitely not that helpful. We ordered room service, extra towels etc. and nothing was ever delivered. The rooms are dated and extremely underwhelming. We traveled with a large group for a wedding, so I can say first hand that many of them have missing lamps, curtains, no hot water, and/or mold. The wedding venues are pretty, but you need to make sure you're okay with a very public wedding. They by no means clear the beach or swimming area behind the ceremony, so I found that to be pretty uncomfortable. They also offer the same terrible wine and bottom shelf alcohol at weddings which was pretty disappointing. The resort offers everything expected from a 5-star resort, but just not at the level you would expect. The food is also terrible. I found a couple items that held me over for the week, but I by no means enjoyed a meal. All in all, if you're looking for a fun, affordable vacation, I recommend coming. However, if you're a 4/5 star hotel kind of traveler, don't even think about it.

Review:   See Bill Dressen's and Tom Cox's review below. They mostly summarized how I felt but I'll add a few things. Preface by saying I've stayed in everything from Super 8 to four seasons. I also stayed as a "preferred member." DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL! I felt as if I had to beg for anything and It was a favor when received. Consistent poor hospitality. The food is very underwhelming. Many of our group became ill and avoided certain places all together. The rooms were moldy and practically everything in mine was broken. Other party members had similar experiences. Water through roofs, no power, extreme moisture, broken safe. The good- beach, pools, and party atmosphere. Not recommended for children. I witnessed nudity, excessive loud noise, profanity amongst other things. I did enjoy myself solely because the group I was with however, I feel people should be informed. Now Larimar is a mega resort. We did an excursion that stopped at the Westin, it was amazing service just for our lunch and one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever been to. It was also much quieter and smaller in scale.

Review:   Went for a wedding from April 4th-11th 2016. It was a great trip!! I had read reviews prior to going, and will admit I was very apprehensive about what I might find. Those reviews were wrong, and it was absolutely wonderful. The entertainment team was great! And the variety of activities they had was exceptional! My favorite had to have been the beach party night, with the fire show!! It was absolutely wonderful! The rooms were well kept, and turndown service each night was a nice treat. Our mini fridge was always stocked—and with what we requested. (just beer and H20 for us please!) We always had clean towels, and never found one bug in our room. The food was better than I expected, the only meal I did not like was at the Mexican restaurant the Fajita had to have had the driest chicken I had ever eaten in my life. Other than that no complaints! I would however suggest more food available by the pool/beach as by the end I was sick of fries and hot dogs. The pool & beach areas were amazing!! AND the best part was I didn’t have to wake up at 8am to reserve a chair. Overall, it was a great trip. I am deducting stars though for some poor attitudes from some staff members, and for the view of our room (pretty sure we looked at Staff corridors)

Review:   Loved it! I had a lot of interesting activities with the hotel staff, and I also had a lot of fun. The food in the restaurants was really delicious, and the rooms were pretty well arranged and cleaned. The weather was warm and sunny almost all the time. The view from my room was really great. The staff was so friendly that I will never forget about the time I spent with them during the activities I got involved in. I also made new friends from many countries around the world easily. I really miss this place, the friendly staff and the new friends I made there now!

Review:   I have been to quite a few resorts in my time and this was by far the worst place I have ever been to in or out of the US. The food was terrible! On all of our paperwork this was supposed to be a top shelf liquor resorts and it was far from it. You have to upgrade to get top shelf and even then there isn't much for top shelf. I didn't upgrade because it was not worth it and I am glad I didn't because I was told by multiple people that the "Top Shelf" sure didn't taste like it. We would order drinks for example Stolie vodka. I would watch them poor my drink and that is the bottle it came out of but when I drank it was obvious it was not vodka. At one point I had the bartender poor me a shot just to sip it straight and see and it definitely wasn't vodka. This happened the whole trip so in conclusion for drinks, the bottles are obviously being filled with something other then what is labeled. When it came to the drinks in general, they were horrible. We were there with a wedding with a party of 35, over half of us were feeling like crap by day 3 and 12 of them were beyond sick and were unable to leave the room! People we constantly pestering you to buy something... even calling your room sometimes 5 times a day starting at 8AM so we all unplugged our phones. The dealers at the casino misdealt numerous time which cost us somehow. The rooms were ok but not great. I guess the last tipping point for me was when you do the review upon checkout I had 2 guys hovering over me and telling me a couldn't make the review I was and I could only hit excellent for everything. Anything else would make them look bad and they would lose jobs. One even started redoing my review for me so I just gave up. It was very disappointing and upsetting but what can I do other then write this review. On a better note.... Beach was amazing! Clean resort when it came down to it. There was constant activities at the pool which was cool and fun. Eclipse club was for a little night life as well as the shows. If anyone books a trip in the Dominican, I would stay far away from this resort. :(
