Question about weather

We are planning a trip starting January 25. Our weather network indicates highs of 23 during our trip. Wondering what to pack? I thought it is usually warmer there. The "Z....." weather forecast indicates 30 each day and it is so close to Ixtapa? Can anyone tell me what temperatures are like there now?

Great Vacation

We vacationed at the Sunscape Dorado from Jan 8th to 15th. It was great. Weather was good, staff was great. We miss Simon and Raymundo at the swim up bar already. And all our friends we met from all over.

Great Service, Great Staff but Food???

We are spending our last evening here in Ixtapa at the Sunscape Dorado and for the most part have enjoyed our stay. This is our second stay here and our 5th time in Ixtapa. Needless to say we truly enjoy Ixtapa and all that it and it's surrounding area has to offer. Wonderful weather, long sandy beaches and wonderful restaurants within walking distance. It really doesn't get any better than that. Our flight we booked with Air Canada vacations was easy and seamless. We had requested a deluxe ocean view but I guess every room has an Ocean view so I can't complain. We did request a King Bed but was told they had none. They told us they would try again the next day but the same result. Kind of disappointing but oh well. The service throughout our stay has been second to none. Every staff member is courteous and anxious to take care of your needs. It is always "my pleasure" and they prove it. Well trained but sincere in their efforts. Having stayed here before we had expectations and for the most part they were met. We spoke with quite a few other guests who have stayed here a number of times and there was a real common thread. "Food". Most felt the food quality and more over selection has diminished dramatically. We went for steak night last night and don't really know what was served. Some form of beef and chicken. The mashed potatoes were more like potato soup and the vegetables were virtually non existent. Disappointining to say the least. I'm a picky eater but my wife is not and she has been less that impressed. Breakfasts are excellent with great variety and quality. Unfortunately that is where it ends. Our last stay was at the Emporio and the food quality was very poor. I am afraid to say the quality here is not much better. We have also stayed at the Barcelo twice as well and the food was good there. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel but would be advising potential visitors to not expect the food selection they might expect elsewhere. I realize this is not a 5 star hotel but at least attempt to make it more that a 3. Would we come back? Yes but hope that the food quality and variety is addressed.

Fun trip-Great Staff!

A group of 6 adults spent last week at the Sunscape. We had a great time! The resort isn't overly huge, so it was easy to get around. Our room had a nice view and was very comfortable, clean, and up to date. As previous reviewers have said, there was a bit of a noise problem with the resort next door, but we found that if you run the fan in the room we had no problem sleeping. The staff was wonderful, and the check in/check out procedure was simple. The buffets were diverse and plentiful, especially breakfast! I would recommend this property to my friends. We miss you Benito!!

Everyone is friendly and helpful. Simon at the pool bar makes you feel at home right from the start. There are a LOT of repeat customers. That's got to say something about this resort. Jorge at the beach bar is great.
