    Great vacation/wedding ever .

    We been coming to Ixtapa for the last 15+ years , my Daughter like it so much she decided to have her wedding there .( Beach Wedding) We had the best event /vacation ever, especially because so many people (friends and Family ) wanted to be with her to celebrate the happy occasion. everyone liked the place especially because most people have not been at Sunscape Dorado Pacifico and many had not experience an all inclusive resort. The wedding was perfect ,we have no words to express our thanks to the Hotel wedding coordinator Erika Orta the magnificent job she did for us ,she took care of all the details to be sure the wedding was a successful one. In fact she stayed till the end of the party to be sure everything went as planned . This is not a surprise for us ,since one of the reasons we like so much Sunscape Dorado Pacifico is because of the wonderful staff ,in addition to Erika we were assisted by Carlos ,Jorge ,Osvaldo on the pool area , all the waiters that took care of us ,Luis and the rest. everyone always with a smile . We were a total of 40 people and everyone loved it ,some families started to asked when we are going next ? by the way the set up on the beach for the wedding was wonderful!. Thank you Erika Orta.

    Our Wedding Vacation

    This testimonial is long overdue! My husband and I stayed here back in 2018 because we had been engaged in Ixtapa the year before. We decided to scope Sunscape out as it looked like a great spot for our upcoming wedding. We were very pleased with the hotel staff, the condition of the hotel, the food, the service, the entertainment etc. While we were here, I met Erika Orta, the wedding planner/coordinator. Erika walked me through the process of having a destination wedding at this particular location. Erika showed me flowers, table cloths etc. Erika then introduced me to a photographer that she knew personally from Zihuatanejo who actually originated from our home province of Ontario. I have good vibes from everyone, especially the effort Erika put into making me feel like it was going to be a good idea to get married here. Lets fast forward to February 2019. February 2nd 2019 My husband and I had 45 guests with us and said our vows. I cannot begin to explain the amount of effort Erika put into making our wedding day a perfect, memorable one. Erika spent countless hours making sure every detail that I wanted from the ceremony to cocktail hour to our reception was there. It was the most beautiful moments on our day that Erika and the staff made possible. Friends of ours were newly engaged on the same week as our wedding and Erika planned a beautiful arrangement for them. From champagne to their room being beautifully decorated. My husband has been travelling to Ixtapa for 28 years and this year was the most memorable for him and I. We talk about our day so often and there is no doubt in our minds that we will continue to travel to this wonderful hotel on the BEAUTIFUL El Palmar Beach.
