Beautiful hotel. Landscaped with lush flower gardens throughout. Great hospitality from employees. Great location to other activities close by. Food exciting and inviting. We were very please with the fresh fruits and veggies. Lots of shopping and dining.

Best on the beach

Well trained staff treated my colleague and I to a warm welcome despite our early check in. Complimentary espressos and sweet bread were provided while we waited for our room to be prepared. The hotel has better facilities than the other hotels on the strip and is centrally located. I have been in ALL the hotels in Ixtapa and this is one of my favorite.

We'll keep going back!

My husband & I will be returning in January 2017 to the Sunscape Dorado Pacifico Ixtapa for our 4th time. We stayed here in 2011, got married here in 2012 & celebrated our 1st anniversary in 2013 but then ventured to the Riviera Maya area for 2015 & 2016... we learned that Ixtapa is definitely the only place we want to go back to - especially for our 5th anniversary! We can't wait for our upcoming visit and are super excited to reunite with our "friends" on the entertainment team and the pool staff... Ramiro, Raymundo & Gersain are a few of our favorites! We have truly enjoyed every stay at the Dorado! We are usually hesitant to bring anyone along on our vacations but this next time we will have 2 other couples with us and are excited to share this gem with them. We know they will enjoy all the activities offered, especially the sand & water volleyball (watch out Ramiro!) #sunscapeixtapa #ixtapa2017

THIS IS SECOND HOME! Amazing doesn't do justice. :) :)

I travel to Ixtapa once every year, and Suncape has become over the years my second home. Just like Suscape has become a second home the team there has become family because of how friendly and welcoming they are. Besides the obvious, the great location, the great view, the amazing hospitality.... My favorite part about staying at Sunscape is the entertainment. The Entertainment Team ALWAYS have something plan for you. From Beach Volleyball, to getting your exercise on with water aerobics. Best part though is is the night show that the Entertainment Team puts together :) you will not be disappointing, always a different theme, never get bored of seeing the show. Can't wait to go back :)

Our very favorite destination🍷😘🍷😘🍷

We were in Ixtapa in Feb. and will return in Nov. for a month. What we are looking forward to is pool activities!!! The entertainment team, always, takes the time and energy to make sure lots of activities are going on. The fire show is incredible. You won't find such an array of fun things at other resorts. This Entertainment Team is the BEST❤️❤️❤️
