Now Larimar Preferred or The Level at Melia?

Been to other resorts in PC, I'm aware both of these are on good stretches of beach which is top priority for us. Please advise based on following:

1) We need a spacious updated room with two doubles/King and a good sofa bed. Our 14 yr old will sleep on it for 2 weeks so comfortable sofa bed is essential. Now Larimar website doesn't mention sofa bed in preferred rooms so please confirm if you have stayed there.

2) Good drinks. Top shelf available at beach, pool bars, restaurants and main lobby. Not just in preferred or level lounges.

3) Does either resort have air conditioned lobby? I assume the a la cartes are air conditioned?

4) Good wifi in room, beach and pools.

Also I'm curious how no bracelet works at Now Larimar? How can they tell whether you are preferred club or not?

Thank you in advance!

They are on the same stretch of beach .. The level AO is the best resort we have been to so far out of Barceló Bavaro , Palladium , Paradisus PC, Bahia , Majestic Elegance , Excellence .. Looked at Now but haven't been.. Going back to Melia in 4 weeks. No A/C in the lobby there.

Thank you bomberro!

We'll have to stay in the family section of The Level. I think the AO buildings are close to the beach but family buildings are at the back of the resort, right? Long walk to the beach from there?

Quite a few reviews mention that top shelf booze variety isn't as good as other resorts, your opinion? The Level doesn't have its own lobby so which lobby do their guests go to relax in the evenings?

Now Larimar has an Air conditioned lobby area

Seen sofa beds in the rooms but never used it so can not comment on that one

Level family section is a whole 10 minute walk to the beach. They have top shelf booze, no lobby is air conditioned. Been 9 times love it like Bomberro does lol. Wifi is good from lobby to beach.
