Ler me just say, we hade ordered a superior room with a partial ocean view and balcony and did not get that room. No balcony and no view of the ocean. We paid for the balcony room and it wasn't until 5 days in to the trip they were able to get me another room.

The staff was friendly, loved the contemporary style. A window in the celing was open so it rained on the bed. I was immediately moved to another room. Loved the personalization and feeling of welcome. Two thumbs up

Terrible Room

We were given the worst room, street view with workers across from the room looking directly in at us made me feel very uncomfortable when we asked to change rooms we had to pay an additional $210.00 because they said they had nothing else to give us, no Apple representative around to help us out.

This hotel is located near the shops and restaurants that we like to visit, and is right on the beach. However, it does seem to be crowded, especially the pool area. The weekends are the worst.

Loved being in Romantia zone but rooms were small and need updates. Family oriented and very noisy. Rooms all go around the pool and music is very loud. Food ok but we loved sampling the local restaurant

Sunscape Hotel
James G.
May 04 2016
We got a fantastic deal. Overall, we were happy with Sunscape although there were a few negatives: namely, the sewer gas odor that pervaded the guest corridors and the poor service and food at the Da Mario Restaurant. We were very happy with the buffet restaurant, the World Cafe, and its staff. The two Luises and Alberto were just great with friendly and efficient service throughout our stay. At the pool, Mario and Stephania kept us in drinks with ready smiles.

PERFECT Location!

A lovely resort. You walk in from the small town side into the entrance the opens to the gorgeous beach. The room was clean and nice - we had a balcony. The staff was friendly and helpful. We had some issues with our room but they resolved them quickly. We ate at the restaurant (off the menu, no the buffet) and the food was okay. But the location cannot be beat. You feel like a local with all of the convenience of a resort. 25ish mins to the newer part of town - but I loved this area so much I wanted to move there (seriously)!

Great location, GREAT price

We booked our room via another booking engine for $77 a night, which was a steal. The rooms aren't huge but like any good beach vacation you shouldn't spend much time in the room anyways. The AC in our room created a weird cold-humid environment which wasn't ideal but it could have been worse. The location of this property is great, its right in the middle of all of the action. We opted to not do the all inclusive package and enjoy the local food. I'd highly recommend a day trip to Sayulita for some body surfing and food. In Puerto Vallarta you have to eat at Pancho's Takos - its worth the wait.

Best hotel in Puerto Vallarta!

My family loved it here! We stayed here only 1 night from our cruise ship which wasnt long enough. Check in was fast and such a sweetheart at the front desk, hotel is the perfect location, with perfect view of pool and ocean from our room. All 4 pools are different temperatures which felt amazing after being in the sun and ocean. The hotel provides lounge chairs and umbrellas on the beach. Everything is walking distance! Don't miss out on the breakfast buffet! OMG it was the best food for such a great price! We plan on coming back for a longer stay. Thank you for such a beautiful experience!

Major problem with A/C which ran all the time which created noise making it more difficult to sleep. The bed was comfortable but the bedroom and bathroom were both quit small. The service was very good which made the stay good.

Nice hotel in great beachfront location in Zona Romantica

This hotel is in a great location and very walkable to everything in the Romantic Zone of Puerto Vallarta. Probably the best location on the beach for swimming. Some of the rooms are just ok and others are much better. We spent our first night in a cheap smaller room toward the back of the hotel and upgraded to an oceanfront suite for the rest of the week. The upgrade was definitely worth the extra cost. Our room was directly on the beach and we could hear to the waves crashing all day and night. The hotel also has a nice restaurant, smallish poolside bar and 4 pools. The main pool is basically for families with children, and the smaller pool towards the beach seemed more adult oriented. All sorts of guests were there from families with small children to adult singles and couples with no children. I'd definitely recommend this hotel, but getting the right room definitely makes for a much better experience. Overall, a good value for the price even with the upgrade.
