Great vacation

The resort was awesome and the staff were amazing. I would definitely go back. The room was good and clean One of my favorite things on the resort was the pizza place. The guy making the pizza was hilarious and extremely friendly. We were there almost every night.

Beautiful Resort

We have been to several all inclusives and would have to say that overall, this place rates right near the top for us! We booked the Sunclub Family Section and I think just having our own pool and resturaunt made this upgrade worth it. Our room was absolutely fantastic! It was huge with a separate bedroom for us and two single beds in another room for our kids. Bathroom was also very spacious. We had 2 balconies overlooking the main pool which was great! We tried all of the resturaunts and never have a bad meal. As I said before the Sunclub was great for meals as well and we typically had breakfast there. Special shout out to the cafe as this was a great stop after dinner or anytime really. The coffees were delicious. Saw some of the shows which were your typical "resort shows." We spent time in all of the pools and would typically be able to find chairs with shade with no issues. The only negative that we found (and it had been mentioned here before so we knew about it before hand) is how busy it gets on weekends!! It is not an exaggeration to say that it is about 4 people deep at the pool bar and there are seriously no chairs by the main pool. This is when we really enjoyed the Sunclub as our escape to a quieter spot with access to a less crowded bar. We also took advantage of room service once to avoid lunch buffet crowds. We never return to the same place twice, however would certainly be tempted with this resort!

Sunclub is the way to go

I booked the sunclub at this hotel even though I have never upgraded before as I never saw much difference in the options for the price you paid for it, however, it was well worth it here. We had a suite, overlooking the pool with 2 balconies, 2 TV’s, double sinks and a huge shower. We had our own pool for sunclub guest with snacks all day. Plenty of shade at both the pool and beach area. Shade was much needed as the pool umbrellas are very limited. I liked the idea of not needing a bracelet and not having to make reservations for dinner. A la Carts were good and the buffet and entertainment were your usual vacation fare. I would definitely return to this resort. Norberto in the sunclub provided us with excellent service. Always with a smile.

Wedding at Sunscape, Puerto Plata
wolfeman112, NYC

You may have seen a few of my previous reviews and think that I only comment about bad experiences. Well I am not a hypocrite and with that would like to share a positive experience with everyone.\ My wife and I got married last weekend at Sunscape, Puerto Plata and had an awesome experience. As you can probably figure out by my previous reviews, I am a bit of a pain in the butt and have high expectations. This resort basically exceeded my expectations. We had 76 guests at the wedding, most coming from the USA. I worked with Germy, the wedding coordinator and she was OUTSTANDING. We must have sent her 500 emails to plan this event and she answered every single one. Even some of the unusual requests that were made were always given consideration and even if they could not be done as requested, they made exceptions and accommodated us the best they could. An example is that for my mom who can't walk too much, I asked for the use of a golf cart. Well they could not give us a cart but I was assigned a cell phone with the contacts of the department mangers and simply just needed to call the concierge manager to request a cart. The cart was always dispatched immediately. I also requested a handheld shower massager for our bathroom. They gave us a free upgraded room and it had a regular "rain" style shower. Within 20 minutes of telling Germy this there were 3 workers with power tools at our room. They uninstalled the existing shower head and installed a brand new handheld massager, including patching and painting the ceiling. These are just 2 examples of the great service they gave. It looked like rain was likely for the wedding so a few days before the general manager and wedding coordinator offered the use of the theater for our ceremony. This was an inconvenience for the hotel but to make our wedding ceremony a success they offered it to us at NO CHARGE. Otherwise we would have had to rent tents and it would have been messy. Instead we used the theater and the ceremony looked great. The fireworks show at the end of the wedding was great and well worth every penny. The "Crazy Hour" was also great (eventhough it's only 35 minutes). A lot of fun with the dancers and music. As I said we have 76 people at the wedding. So having dinner in the specialty restaurants with 30-50 people was probably a bit of a challenge for them, but they did an excellent job and were very accommodating. I cannot say enough great things about the staff. Each and everyone of them greeted all of us with a smile and were friendly everyday. They went out of their way to make the guests feel relaxed and have fun. The shows at night were nice. The magic show with Roy Sabant was EXCELLENT. The only negative comment that I have is that there is no real food after 10:30pm. They have the Coco Cafe where you can get coffe, expresso, cakes and crappy stale sandwiches. They need to improve their 24 hour food ability after 10:30pm. They need to have a grill where we can get a burger, chicken, pizza, etc. After a night of drinking people need real food at 3am. In general it was an AWESOME experience and we thank the staff at Sunscape for making it possible. We highly recommend them for anyone looking to have a destination wedding in the DR. Rosa and Alan

Average with pretty good service

Basic 3+*. Interesting lay out. Property is definitely showing it's age but is amazingly well kept. Loved that the gardeners were sweeping and raking rather than using noisy blowers. Beach is wonderful. Lots of chairs. Shade is at a premium, under trees, where it can get quite crowded. Vendors can be persistent. One tried for 3 days to get me to purchase a massage then asked me to get her a pina colada from the bar. Some other guest ( weekend locals, I believe) got her a couple. Pool was fine. Lots of loungers. Again, seemed like the shade options got taken first. Perhaps more umbrellas? Rooms are spacious and generic. Food was OK. Repetitive. NO ICE CREAM??? With more than 70 all inclusive resort stays in my past, this is the first one that had no ice cream anywhere to be found. Well, other than on a couple of a la carte dinner menus. Surprised by this...when I asked a bartender where the ice cream was hiding, telling her after 3 days on property, we still had yet to see ice cream, she went off and found us a big bowl. Then, another amazing surprise, I asked one of the servers if there was mango. She brought me a whole plate full, plastic wrapped,with a knife, fork and napkin, to go. It's this type of service that would bring us back. We ended up at Sunscape on a local holiday, so it was extremely busy for a few days. The main buffet is not set up for a crowd. After seeing what happened over the Sept long weekend, I would not want to be there in peak season. Way to crowded and busy! One guest said she heard that the resort had an extra 1300 people in over the weekend. The location is good. Relatively close to the airport. There is some shopping and a golf course right in front of the resort. It was nice to see so many smiles and welcomes from the staff.
