This is our second time at this hotel...the staff are incredible they go out of their way to try and do whatever they can for you...wow they are so hard working, and beyond friendly...love this place. The one problem is the music by the pool early in day they play Zamfier ALL morning long...once its okay but daily...not so much I went home with that dam flute playing in my brain...we asked them to change the music and were told by a few workers that they cant...its managements choice...well managers...try sitting there and hear that flute over and over again not good, there are plenty of soft music you can choose from so please for the next guest sake change it up! \other than that, great stay will hopefully return

Just got back from a 2 week stay. We had the sunclub honeymoon suite and it was siiiiic. The room was spacious and very comfortable. Sunset views were spectacular, although we watched most from the beach. The beach is absolutely amazing. Huge waves to surf and crash with. Clear green emerald water beyond wave breaks. Nice soft sand. We walked the beach every morning prior to breakfast- probably a good kilometre or so. However, this beach is not for novice swimmers unless ur pretty much knee deep. We had wifi everywhere including the beach which was great. Sent pics and videos with no problems. The staff are simply amazing. Juan Valdovinos is an asset to this resort. He is genuine and charismatic, always a smile on his face. Silvano is great as well. Saul, the waiter in the buffet restaurant made sure you had coffee or drinks as soon as you sit down and clear ur plate as soon as ur done. Hugo Sunda ensured our needs were taken care of for our entire 2 week stay. Fernando, the beach concierge is a kind and gentle person who would ensure we were comfortable on the beach and provided us with a daily newspaper. The food is ok; it will grow on you. Breakfast was great. Eggs, Nutella crepes, fruit, yogurt , soppas, enchiladas and did I mention Nutella crepes? Lol. The ala carts could improve. The Italian is good, but salty. Id wake up every night drinking water. The blue water grill had good cheviche and fajitas. The sunclub lounge is kind of crappy. It's small and boring. People have said in past reviews that this place has top shelf liquor, but they do not know what top shelf is. Smirnoff vodka, Bacardi rum, johnnie walker scotch tanquery gin and jack Daniels is not what I consider top shelf. Indeed, they are premium brands, however, they could use grey goose, makers mark and perhaps some single malts to make up a deluxe assortment. The beach vendors are relentless, but not pushy. We talked to them daily and the man offering jet skis was great to talk to as well. My wife and I will definitely return to this resort. We had a fabulous time. Thank you sunscape.

Great staff,great food and beautiful scenery!

The standard rooms are OK and nothing special but functional. The overall hotel condition is good and sanitary. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Food was great and lots of choices. The beach is the clear standout of this resort as the rocky islands in the distance look great on the horizon. Water is often choppy with some real crashing waves. The nearby town of Ixtapa has a great night life and lots of fun bars/restaurants to visit. I would go back again!
