Exactly what we wanted
Cierra P,

I stayed here with a friend as a post-grad trip in April 2018. My family is a part of the Unlimited Vacations club, unfortunately it was not possible for us to book through our club membership as it made everything more expensive (that happens sometimes). However, when we arrived we went to the preferred club ('Sun Club') and chatted with Patricia. I have never felt more heard and welcomed by resort staff. Patricia was not only able to give us access to the the preferred club but also book us in for dinner at all of the restaurants. She honestly made our trip 100% better, thank you Patricia!!! As with any resort there are pros and cons ... this resort is exactly what we wanted it to be. There was lots of sun, the food was okay (not great but had some great aspects), the beach was nice to walk down (you can go on forever). A negative would definitely be the pool - it was disgusting for a few of the days, with a gross film on top of the water that made it impossible to not feel like you're going to get a disease in it. The shows were entertaining, don't expect broadway or anything but it's nice to have some entertainment at night, plus there is a pizza place above the theatre which is AMAZING!

HORRIBLE

this was a family vacation we had 11 people in our group check in was probably the best part as for the rest that is another story...the food was disgusting.the bar tenders would stop serving us if the locals would want a drink.they also let locals in on the weekends for a discounted rate which I think is ridiculous for the amount of money that they charge everyone else. They also say that vendors are not allowed in the resort that also I'd a lie they are right in front of the steps every day trying to sell you junk.and last but not least there was an older man in his 50s in the pool making passes at my 13 year old niece and when we went to let security know about it they said he wont do anything he's just drunk so I guess but the standards of sunscape and the Dominican republic if you are a pedophile you can try anything if you are drunk ..TO ALL FAMILIES PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU WATCH YOUR CHILDREN AT L TIMES IF YOU GO HERE.and ask your travel agent for a discounted rate because of the locals.

This was one of the worst trips I’ve ever been on. The room was filthy, filled with bugs, basically uninhabitable and didn’t have working AC in the summer. The food options were limited and the resort was completely deserted at dinner time. There’s really nothing to do except go in the one pool they have. If you’ve ever stayed at an all-inclusive in Punta Cana or somewhere similar and expect the same type of place, this is NOT for you.

I have travelled all over the Caribbean and been to many resorts. This resort is average. The food and shows can get repetitive. The people who work there are lovely and work very hard. The resort can get very busy when locals visit and the buffets and main pool bar can get jammed and its hard to get a drink/food. I was happy we did the Sun Club, the drinks/service was great there and the pool at Sun Club was a nice escape when the main pool got too busy.

We stayed at Sunscape from July 15-22 and found this resort to be top quality. The staff were not only friendly and helpful, but also happy and enthusiastic about their job. Their positive attitude can be felt all around the resort. I would like to give a shout-out to Michael, who was very friendly and helpful while we were there. Our maid did an excellent job and was always very pleasant and friendly. You could always see the animation team interacting with guests and being genuinely interested in striking up a conversation. We did not do any of the pool activities with the animation team, but that didn't stop them from interacting and conversing with us. The facilities and grounds are immaculate, everything in the room worked as it should, we had no issues with anything not being up to par. The evening entertainment was unbelievably amazing. We were in awe each night with the talent of the dancers. There was one night with a magician when the dancers were off that was rather lame, but the rest of the nights, the entertainment was better than anything we have seen. anywhere else. We enjoyed the live music in the lobby bar each evening, the music was beautiful, enjoyable and relaxing; it set a wonderful ambiance in the evening. There is something for everyone at this resort. There were lots of activities around the pool if that is what you like. We enjoyed the quieter pool, which wasn't very crowded. There is a disco for people that are into that. We would rather have a quieter vacation, and we were able to find areas to accomplish this without having to upgrade to the Sun Club. However, if you would like to stay in an all adult area, that is available as well. We enjoyed the extra events in the afternoons, especially when they brought out fresh coconut for anyone that wanted one, and one afternoon when they had special Dominican snacks. Sunscape went out of their way to make every day extra special! One thing that we didn't realize before we chose Puerto Plata is that this beach is very windy. You really can't enjoy sitting at the beach all day, because the wind blows too hard. Go to the beach in the mornings. If we had known that, we may not have chosen Puerto Plata. We would rather be able to be at the beach all day. This isn't anything against Sunscape, more just a FYI if you are considering Puerto Plata vs. another location. However, you can't find a better tropical location for a better price probably anywhere in the Caribbean. I would say that the food is just average, but I am biased in that I am not a fan of Dominican food so I didn't mark Sunscape's rating down for this. I see that others really liked the food. I did not go hungry, there was always something I could find to eat. However, we did have an amazing meal at the Asian restaurant. I like the fact that you didn't have to make reservations in advance at the Ala Carte restaurants. We stayed at 3 different resorts while in Puerto Plata on this trip, and Sunscape was our favorite of them all. I just have one suggestion for Sunscape to make an already great resort even better. You have many complaints on Trip Advisor about the way check-in works. Like so many travelers, we came a long way to get there. By the time we had arrived, we had been up for 27 hours and hadn't eaten for 8 hours. The last thing we needed was to have our check in prolonged by having a "tour" and then be pressured to attend a sales presentation. At this point, all we cared about was to put our things in our room, eat, then get out to the beach or pool to cool off, as we were hot, tired and sweaty from travelling so long. On a positive note, we did appreciate the relationship that Michael built with us from the beginning as he took us to our room, and then he maintained that relationship throughout our stay. He made us feel welcome and cared for. You just need to think of a different way and time to ask about attending the sales presentation, like maybe the next day.
