Wonderful location

We went to a friend's wedding here and it was wonderful. Wedding was perfect, the stay was great. The bride and groom had a group of 40 and they were able to accommodate everything. Some helpful tips: when you get into your room keep a key in the key holder at all times, even when you are not in the room to keep the a/c on, also turn the a/c all the way down and on "high fan", it gets rather toasty in the rooms. Get the upgraded package (Sun Club) that gives you access to the lounge or you cannot get an alcoholic drink until 11 am (may not be important to some, but hey I am on vacation). The swim up bar has the most amazing bar tenders (HUGE SHOUT OUT to Simon and Carlos). They made our stay amazing and really made our whole experience. Take the public bus into town (12 pesos each way) and explore around. The Central Market was a lot of fun.

BEST VALUE for your budget!! AMAZING staff!

I recently stayed at Sunscape Dorado Pacifico Ixtapa and absolutely loved it. I teach yoga at resorts for a living and I have been to many places around the world. Sunscape Dorado stands out to me as having some of the best staff I have ever experienced. Especially the entertainment staff! I have never laughed so much on vacation. If you get the chance, you must meet "El Grillo". He is one of the entertainment team and genuinely cares about his guests and their happiness. I also had a wonderful massage experience and lots of engaging conversation with the bartenders. The location to practice yoga is perfect and the food at the restaurant on the beach is ACTUALLY authentic Mexican food. It seems obvious but I can't tell you how many times I have had poor food experiences at resorts. The location is also something that really stands out to me. Ixtapa is beautiful and it is only a quick ride to Zihuatenejo. We were able to leave the hotel at any time with great convenience. The staff always greeted us by name and it felt as if we were home. I will say if you are looking for a super fancy, high quality resort, this isn't the place for you but if you are traveling as a family or on a budget, you've hit the JACKPOT!

Amazing Family Vacation

My husband and I had been here twice before on "grown ups only" trips, and this time we took our family. We couldn't have been happier! Everyone enjoyed a mix of being together and doing our own things, and the kids were safe and able to wander around to do different activities or be in the pool. It was such an ideal mix for all of us! We can't wait to return!

Honeymoon Haven!

My husband and I decided to spend our anniversary honeymoon here and it was one of our best decisions! Staff was super friendly and helpful and we had an amazing time. Beautiful resort with an even better view of neighboring islands, "Los Morros" and a perfect balance of fun activities and relaxation spots! We had most of our dinners at the Blue Water Restaurant and my husband fell in love with their salmon entrée. Most definitely recommending this resort to all our friends and family and cannot wait to come back!

Friendly, clean, and perfect for families
