Wonderful Resort

Great location, beautiful beach, great good and rooms were comfortable, very clean. We visited the resort in January 2016 with some friends and we had an awesome time. We visited the town across the street from the resort and when on a sunset boat ride in Zihuatanejo . Highly recommend the Sunscape Dorado Pacifico in Ixtapa.

Overall our experience was pretty good; we have been to many all inclusive resorts all over Mexico; the pool and staff were amazing here, but the food was sub par. The rooms were great. It was quite busy for Spring Break but it seemed that the food was either cold; or very bland. We are certainly not picky eaters. For a good chain resort, I would think they could do a better job. Beach is lovely but too rough for little kids.

The Best Entertainment Around!!!

Since day one of our arrival everything went great from the bellboys, to the welcome it was great and over all warm and embracing. I was amazed by the food and the drinks wow incredible and for a great price. I have to admit the best thing about the trip was the entertainment team. They had us going with all their fun activities and games around the pool and beach. My family loved you all so thanks entertainment team! Especial thanks to Tony Lucas from entertainment though. This man had fluent English, great guy to talk to, and over all made the experience 100 times better with his knowledge and skills. He went above and beyond to make sure my family and I were taken care of as well. I must say hands down one of the best employees I’ve gotten the chance to meet. You swayed me over Tony and entertainment team so we will see you all soon Sunscape!

Best vacation spot!

I have been to this resort 3 times and my friends family has been there 7 times. We continue to come back for a reason. It is beautiful, the weather is always perfect, the food is great and my absolute favorite: the staff! They are so caring and every time we come back they remember us and are genuinely excited. The entertainment team, especially Antonio, Jesus, and Xavy, make the stay so much fun! Simon makes the best drinks of all time, I miss them when I come home! If you are on the edge about visiting I hope this can convince you. You won't regret it!

Great Service, Broken Promises

Overall, we enjoyed our stay at this resort. The service personnel was fabulous! The wait staff (Julio & Hector were the best), the masseuses, the serving staff (esp the omelette bar!), the housecleaning staff, Alejandro/Alex was great entertainment and gave a great bike tour, Simon at the pool bar was fantastic... 5 stars for all them! In addition, we enjoyed the evening activities and fiestas. We participated in the shows and truly enjoyed ourselves. Bluewater grill was our favorite dining place, though the Italian restaurant (DaMarios) provided a 5+ Star meal!! Ixtapa is a great place to visit and I’d encourage you to visit this resort keeping in mind the concerns below. There are lots of activities for kids and parents alike. Make sure you bring mosquito repellant if you are one of the sweet ones they seek. The beauty of Ixtapa is largely due to humidity which breeds hungry mosquitos. Using repellant made each night more tolerable for me! A couple issues made this go from 5 stars to 3 stars... at times I considered 1 Star. First the resort will try to upsell you on the Sun Club. You can’t have certain privileges without it. Even getting bottled waters is an issue! The first day, we didn’t know about their water rules and had to purchase our own from the farmacia. We survived without the sun club and truly had a lovely time. Second and the most important: When we arrived, we were asked to attend a presentation and were promised $125 in resort credits for our time. We were traveling with another couple though we each paid for our own rooms. We were scheduled separately for the presentation, as we requested. After our friends declined the offered package, my husband and I were still considering. After my friend and I got out of our massage, Luis was waiting for us to ask us to return $75 each of our incentive $. They thought my husband and I had declined since we walked out but we were actively seeking options to make it work. Having them ask for the $$ back was so unethical. They also denied Luis his commission although we wanted to be separate. It is poor practice that they REQUIRE couples who arrive together to attend presentations together. I don’t want my friends involved in a $25000 decision! We asked to talk to the manager, Hugo, who wasn’t available until the next morning. Hugo assured us he would help us recoup some incentive with deals on ATV rides or on late check out. NONE of these materialized. We were fed lies upon lies upon lies. It was a frustrating experience and makes us think Unlimited Vacation package might not honor their package promises. This is unfortunate for Juan Jose (JJ), who was a GREAT host and presenter. We were truly considering the last offer but had our incentive money taken away before having a chance to finalize. This sealed the fate of a NON DEAL. SORRY JJ... you were great to us! We also signed up for the ATV excursion. We were told we would have transportation to and from excursion, as well as 3 hrs on ATVs and lunch/beers at restaurant on Troncones beach. The excursion was FABULOUS! We did have another issue of being promised something that didn’t exist. Lunch and beers were not included. That was unfortunate. I don’t think the hotel personnel knew there was a change but it was still another issue on top of the others. So, again, we do recommend the resort (remember the ATV excursion and morning bike ride too!) but caution you regarding the issues above. Ixtapa is soooo beautiful. The people here are so kind. If you can venture to zihuatenejo, I highly recommend going to Chula Vista Bar and Grill for dinner/drinks in El Centro and spend a half day to visit Franco at “restaurant otilia” at Playa las Gatas. Muchas gracias to those who made this stay memorable!!
