Spent two weeks at the Sunscape Ixtapa again this year and it was even better than last year which was fantastic. The entertainment is a definite upgrade from last year, as there was a different show each night. The entertainment crew kept everyone busy all day with lots of different competitions every day. Chef Andre, a Canadian transplant from Ontario has revamped the buffet with a different theme each night of tasty dishes and the Italian, Mexican and Steakhouse are as good as they were last year. One change from last year is that you now need a towel card and you can’t reserve chairs at the pool for more than an hour (both good changes in my mind). Special thanks to a few of outstanding staff that made our stay even more special. Gersain at the pool for his tireless service (he is the energizer bunny), Victor at the lounge who makes the best drinks, and Benito in the breakfast buffet who greets with a big smile each morning. The only negative in the resort is having to pay for wifi, I would like that to change, but on a whole this is a fantastic resort that I recommend to anyone looking for a great escape from the winter.

I was one of the 4 quartet that stayed at Sunscape Ixtapa the first week of February. The Sunscape resort was terrific. The ala cart restaurants were great and we didn't need reservations. Paola (concierge)was wonderful to us. Antonio, Alejandro, Simon, Ule,and Alicia from the pool bars and restaurants were top notch , so friendly and so nice. Also Rodriques and Simon from the lobby bar . The pool area and beach are super. Everything is so handy, no walking hardly at all. The resort is super clean, staff is always cleaning . There were 3 washrooms close to the beach and pools and they were always clean. The buffet was very good for breakfast but needs some work for the dinner buffet. More variety needed. However we went mostly to the ala carts so it wasn't a big deal to us. All in all, a very nice resort. If I go back to Ixtapa, I definitely will go back to the Sunscape.

Very Relaxing

My wife and I decided to try a new resort this year. Having been to Mexico and Ixtapa many times we tried the Dorado Pacifico because it looked good and had mostly good reviews. We were glad we did. We chose to upgrade to The Sunclub. Good move. When we checked in, Fernanda Alarcon greeted us like we were old friends. By the end of our vacation, we were . Always a great smile and very helpful. Thank you Fernanda. Our room was very good and had an ocean view. Lovely. Lots of chairs to choose from around the pool area and the beach. No need to get up at 5am to get a good spot. We loved the fact about NO SMOKING around tho pool area or on the resort grounds. Lots of shade for those who want it. The kids area was terrific for those with little ones, great water activities for the little ones. Very relaxing and CASUAL in the restaurants..the only restaurant needing long pants for men was the Italian restaurant MARIOS. Good food, not overly huge portions and great service. Thanks Chef Andre for your work with the menu and your chefs. Special thanks toAdilele at the BlueWater Grill for your smiles and great service. Tyr the baked fish in butter and garlic, yummy. In the Windows restaurant, Lidia and Gilberto always had time for a little chat. That and their smile and great service made a great start to our days. The 24hour coffee bar was an early morning start for us each day. Sandra and Felipe, thank you for great service, smiles, knowing our orders and really good lattes each morning! Down at the BARRacuda bar, all the guys were great but a special shout out to sSilviano, Ulises and Jonathon (snack machine). Always kept us well hydrated and well fed. Thanks Manuel for keeping our room in great shape each day. We really enjoyed your towel sculptures. Thanks Marcelo in the lounge bar for our "night caps". mmmm good sleeps.! Julian Torres ar front of the house reception, a big thank you for being so welcoming! We thank you very much. We enjoyed our vacation very much. All of the staff were extremely welcoming and very friendly. All being well next year, we hope to return. Salud😀

Another great trip!

This is our 3rd year in a row at the Sunscape and I can't wait to go back next year. The weather is excellent - always warm and sunny and the Sunscape never disappoints. The staff is very nice and friendly and the food is good. We had a honeymoon suite this year on the 18th floor - nice large room, soft beds and awesome view. I did the morning bike ride with the hotel to Playa Linda - highly recommend this for a good work out and you get to see alligators, lizards, and colorful birds. Also played tennis a few times and worked out in the exercise room. Also did daily walks on the beach. The staff at the pool keep you entertained as do the bartenders. We went to a bar across the street a few nights to watch college basketball.

Lots of Potential, But in the End just Average

We stayed 2 weeks with Sunclub since we would need wifi anyways and that was included. Issues started right at check in. There were a number of people checking in with Sunclub and only 1 staff person to do it. By the time we were checked in everyone at the regular check in was already gone. Our room was on the 21st floor, but we had 2 double beds and great view of the Amara next door instead of the anticipated ocean view (as opposed to partial) and they had a great view back into our room. The rooms are very small and dated, but we knew that ahead of time. One of the main reasons we chose the Sunscape was for the balcony and ocean view so having to peer between a wall and the Amara was very disappointing. We tried repeatedly to get our room changed to a king bed and a true ocean view, but after several days of being told to come back the next day we gave up. We overheard other people with the same issue so if you book Sunclub be aware that you may end up with only a partial ocean view. The bed and bedding were very good. The lock was broken on the balcony door, which we requested to have fixed, but it never was. Light was very poor in the bathroom and our shower never drained for hours. Housekeeping was very good and our room and the resort were spotless. For the first time at an AI in Mexico we did not have to get up at dawn to get a chair at the pool. There were always some available even on the very busy week ends. For 5 days that we were there they were remodeling the bar in the beach and pool area, leaving only the swim up bar. Unfortunately, they never increased the number of servers so getting a drink on those days was almost impossible. Some days the pool was warm and on others it was so cold that there was almost no one swimming. The buffet and food was where this resort really dropped the ball, though. The selection and area is small, leading to some pretty long lines. Even at breakfast there were 20 minute waits for an omelet. The a la cartes were better, but terribly inconsistent. We at Blue Water 3 times - once my meal was good, but my husband's wasn't. Next time we both had good meals and service. The last time we almost left when it was almost an hour before our meals showed up (and no drinks or bread arrived) and then were very poorly prepared and cooked. We ended up eating in Ixtapa far more than we usually do. We also ate a lot of the sandwiches from the coffee shop in the lobby. They were very good. The location is amazing - right on Playa Palmar, which is great for walking, and right across the street from Ixtapa. Unfortunately, there were too many other issues for us to want to return.
