This is my second stay at Sunscape and had a wonderful time with my friends and family. However, I upgraded this stay to be in the sun club and booked the deluxe ocean view and was given a room with the view of the condo. The staff in the sun club tried to help but could do nothing for me the first night, said to come back the next morning and they would have a room ready, which they did not, and then I was told to go back that afternoon. It definitely put a damper on my first two days. Eventually a room opened up for me, but I was not on the sun club floor anymore, so I did not have the extras I was supposed to be offered. In the end my room view was better which made me happy, but things are not clearly specified on your website for what you book compared to what you say are the rooms people purchased for their trip. A deluxe sun club ocean view should be in the front, not the sides. My only other complaint would be the food selection. It is pretty bad, there choices that are there do not taste very well, and there was barely anything that looked fresh. Thankfully we were close to go to restaurants across the street to enjoy dinner. Food NEEDS to be worked on for me to come back. You pay all inclusive to eat amazing food and it was far from that. The things that keep me there are the staff. They are amazing (minus my room not being correct and the misinformation I was given). I felt like they were always cheerful and helping you out. The best part about breakfast was Magdelina - she was amazing!! She made the best omelets and got through a line of people quickly. Simon and Carlos at the swim up bar were always helpful, made amazing drinks, and entertained us well. Never a dull moment with those two! Geovani was also super amazing and even got us towels for the beach one day. They are all hard workers and make that place amazing. In general its an awesome place, but food needs to be made WAY better, and do not give people the run around, I was very disappointed in how many times I needed to go back and be on a schedule for you guys to get my room corrected. And the only offer to ease the pain was a spa treatment. The staff makes your place.

Not 5 golden apples.

I stayed with my family at this hotel for New Years. That was our 7th trip to Mexico. The celebration was beautiful with great fireworks. The worst thing at the hotel is food. No seafood, grilled fish for lunch at the buffet, no French fries or ice cream for kids at the buffet, no lettuce, no avocado, very poor selection of fruits and vegetables. Salad bar was at the buffet only one time during our week stay. The buffet had very limited selection of food to choose from. There was only one restaurant that we could go to because we were with kids under 12, Mexican opens only once per week. Beautiful beach, very good weather. Great, attentive and friendly staff especially Geovani and Octavio. We would give the hotel 4 red apples. I don't think we will go back because of food.

day visit was the best visit

we had the luxury to enjoy a day at the sun scape with the help of alberto Mondragon the manager. he made it very convenient for us to explore this great hotel. we are frequent travelers to ixtapa so to explore new resorts is very good for us. we got to the resort and the first initial sight of it was very beautiful, walk in to a nice entranceway to the front desk, then a very nice sitting area where they have wifi and a 24 hour coffee shop that has all kinds of coffee and tea and cookies, and dainties and even sandwiches. we sat down at the restaurant and ate breakfast it was good the normal breakfast eggs, toast, French toast, fruit, omelette, yogurt, cereal etc. as we sat down I saw that they have a trampoline with the bungy cord for the kids to use with the help of workers and across from that they have tennis courts which is nice that they are centrally located. as we headed to the pool which was a short walk , the chairs were very nice woven fabric, we noticed two large waterslides that go into the first pool just around the corner was the new kids splash park with waterslides buckets full of water dumping, water sprayers it was very cool and had a lot of entertainment for the kids. the remainder of the pool went under a little bridge that lead you to the entertainment area where they have the water games and what not and the bar area that is roped off so the kids cant go into the drinking area. the music they played was very good. very short walk to the beach for the smokers they have a coconut stands that you can ash your cigarettes into. the beach is absolutely stunning, the water is very clear and you can see the fish. the beach huts with beds to lay in. as you get back from the beach they have foot bathes and showers to rinse off. overall very happy with this resort. it works that it is right across the street from ixtapa and the main shopping area.

Wouldn't go back

The food was awful, no fish, no seafood but an abundance of hot dogs. Only good thing was Giovanni the server. It's like being in jail,too many rules. Bar and restaurants close at 8 pm. Can't walk through hotel if you've been swimming. One guy was escorted to his room for having too much fun. We're supposed to go on fishing trip but screwed over by the locals. Everything is closed from 2-5. Terrible vacation.

Not much food choice!!

We just returned from Ixtapa Sunscape Dorado stayed one week nd we were a little disapointed with the food! The buffet was not appealing at all not enough food nd not tasty!! The fruit was terrible! Italian al a cart was good nd the blue water grill was good if your looking for meat forget about it no red meat at all only fish nd chicken!! Wifi was only free in the lobby nd if you wanted it in your room they charge you 200 peso per day unheard of!!! Staff was very nice nd would do anything for you. Rooms were outdated towel's are not white more like grey!! More for kids resort!! I must say the sunset is beautiful!! Sorry Sunscape Dorado you really need to improve your food!!!
