Congratulations to Rossel at Now Larimar for Providing Exceptional Service!

Today on the blog we are celebrating one of our own: Rossel Silvestre from the Front Desk at Now Larimar Punta Cana! We are beyond excited to announce that Rossel has won TripAdvisor’s “Exceptional Service Award.” TripAdvisor selects employees for this award whose excellent service have improved travel experiences. In 2014, there were only 40 people that won the award among thousands of nominees. Please read on for an excerpt from a guest at Now Larimar and how Rossel made their trip truly unforgettable.

Rossel

Congratulations to Rossel Silvestre at Now Larimar Punta Cana for receiving this exciting award!

“My sister and I just returned from a remarkable trip to the Now Larimar in the Dominican Republic. One employee, Rossel, made it a trip we will never forget. After telling him we wanted to experience his country from a local’s perspective, he offered to show us around. We eagerly accepted. He and his wife picked us up on his day off. Using his own vehicle (gas is $7/gallon), he took us to Macao, the most beautiful beach ever. Then he took us to his parents’ farm, where his father showed us all the native fruits andvegetables he cultivate, while his mother made us a wonderful lunch. After watching him and his father engage in a one-on-one basketball game, it was time to leave. On the way back, he showed us acres of rice paddies. It was cultural enrichment at its finest. Rossel has a wonderful, outgoing personality and speaks fluent English. It was the best day of our vacation! He and his family treated us like family. We will never forget their welcoming kindness. We will return.”

We could not be prouder of Rossel for this incredible achievement and his demonstration of Now Resorts & Spas’ dedication to exceeding our guests’ expectations at every turn.

Do you need a Winter GREATaway?

Come January 2, the holiday season will officially be over. No matter where you live or how cold it can get there, the early months of the year tend to be gray and dark. If you’re nodding your head in agreement, Now Resorts & Spas officially prescribes a Winter GREATaway!

N

We prescribe a big dose of sun and sand to cure your winter blues!

A Winter GREATaway is the best cure for a case of the winter blues. While you wait for summer to come where you live, a bit of paradise can be life changing. No to mention up to 30% of travel and up to $400 worth of resort coupons when you book before February 24, 2015 and travel between December 25, 2014 and April 10, 2015.

After a good dose of tropical sun, a dose of the drink of the day and plenty of bed (or perhaps beach) rest you’ll be good as new. Check us out on Instagram for you first dose of paradise and start packing!
