Located in the heart of the beautiful beach town of Ixtapa on Mexico's popular Pacific coast, the oceanfront Sunscape Dorado Pacifico Ixtapa treats couples, singles and families to an Unlimited-Fun getaway, a mere 20 minutes from Ixtapa Zihuatanejo International Airport.
This ultimate sun haven offers the best of both worlds, in one convenient and lively destination. Perfectly situated on a golden sand beach in Ixtapa, a small luxury, world-class resort community, Sunscape Dorado Pacifico is also conveniently located a mere 10 minutes from Zihuatanejo, a laid-back, remote seaside fishing village. Minutes away, guests will find a fantastic array of activities, shopping, nightlife and fine cuisine. 285 guestrooms and suites, located within an 11-story tower, feature a private furnished balcony with stunning views of the Pacific Ocean, daily refreshed mini bar, air conditioning, luxurious bath amenities and flat screen TV.

Eight gourmet restaurants ranging from authentic Mexican to gourmet seafood tantalize the most discerning palates while four lively bars and lounges offer premium international and domestic brand beverages. The brand new Spa (opening November, 2011) will offer an array of indigenous and innovative treatments to relax, refresh and rejuvenate in a tranquil setting. While parents have time for themselves, children of all ages are kept entertained with a variety of supervised activities. The Explorer's Club, for ages 3 to 12, provides kids with daily programs while the Core Zone offers teens, ages 13 to 17, the chance to really cut loose and have the time of their lives.

Family trip

The hotel was nice. Wide mix of nationalities. The food would rate as moderate and would not recommend the all inclusive. Save your money and go into town which is just across the street. The all inclusive drinks were great

Friendly staff and good location

We reserved 6 rooms with 3 suites and 3 partial ocean view rooms and the rooms were not ready. We told the front desk of our disappointment and they made us happy the rest of our trip with the extra attention and special dinners.

The hotel is very nice and kept clean. The grounds are beautiful and kept up nicely. We have no complaints except on the food. We thought the food at the buffet restaraunts could be better. Salads were luke warm and I like mine very cold and fresh tasting. The items that should be served hot were warm at best. The ala cart restaraunts were not as good as we usually have had at other all inclusive places. I do love not having to wear a wristband and also not having to make reservations. Older Kids should be allowed in the Italian restaraunt!

Clean room and friendly staff.

The hotel was 100% full when we arrived. They promise a 3pm check in but our room was not ready until 4:30 which was not that big of a deal. The rooms were not fancy but they were clean and comfortable. The pool area is very nice though they do not seem to have enough chairs for when the resort is as full as it was. You have to get down early in the morning (before 7) and pick out your chairs. Don't throw a book down on them and leave or the staff will remove your personal item and then someone else will grab your chairs. You practically need to wait with your chairs until you can get the hotel towels at 7 am and then put the towels on your chairs and you'll be fine. Food was average to slightly above average. If you eat dinners at the resort and order off the menu, we had to wait a LONG time to get food. The restaurant staff was very friendly, just very overwhelmed with the number of people. They probably needed 25% more staff. The buffet food was average at best. We would usually go out to dinner in the evening. Overall, the Dorado was a clean and comfortable with friendly, but overwhelmed staff. I'm sure the service is much better when they are not so full.

Lots of great dining right across the street at a fair price. We went to the marina one night; it was overpriced and the food was very average (which is probably why there was no one there except us)!
