This our 3rd time in Ixtapa, 2nd at the Sunscape and we will plan to return soon. Ratings are a little lower this year on the staff and service only because a lot of things at the resort were shut down because of the lack off people on vacation-coronavirus. No fault of Sunscape’s management, but service by select staff individuals could have been better. I’m chalking that up to the virus as well.

Everything was good except I ate Turkey dinner along with the person I went with and we got food poisoning

felt very safe while on property - with two teenagers, that was very important. Also was impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of staff.

Great staff and hotel. The late night "battle of the bands" with the Emporio was a bit of a nusience.

Very friendly staff food and services are great area cleam and comfortable great access beachfront

The room was too hot. No air conditioner in restaurants, the food was bad. This is not a 4 star hotel.

I loved this resort. It is located near shops and restaurants that you can walk too. The place is very welcoming, safe, clean and the food is fantastic. I stayed at a different all inclusive in Ixtapa 2 years prior and once there, this one was the most highly recommended to me, so I stayed here this time and was glad I did. The pool is great. The beach is great. The room was a bit small but very clean and had a refrigerator. The air conditioning in the room worked very well. I highly recommend this place for a relaxing fun vacation.

Great resort. Excellent food, friendly staff, and plenty of activities. We have stayed at other resorts in ixtapa and this is the best! You won’t go wrong with a decision to vacation at Sunscape.

We certainly enjoyed our stay at the Sunscape. The hotel, pool, and grounds were always very clean. We loved the hotel layout with everything being so convenient to get to without having to do much walking from our room to the pool, restaurants, and beach. The pool area always had plenty of chairs, and we never had to wait for a table at a restaurant. With so many shops, restaurants, and bars across the street, my family always had something to do in the evening. The staff worked extremely hard and were very friendly. Please always tip if you can. The wait staff work all day in the heat.

The staff knows what service means. They go above the call of duty to see if you need anything and are OK. Always smiling with positive energy.

Staff is great in this hotel. They are friendly, helpful, accommodating, polite and pleasure. The hotel is clean and the location is great. We loved the food in all restaurants.

It was a nice place with a nice staff. I was there for a week and the food got boring and was often the same types. It was clean with a nice beach and good alcohol. It was worth the money.

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

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.

great. love sun, drinks and volleyball. was able to play beach doubles with the extremely athletic and very outgoing staff. and free drinks and food all day and night!!

Overall, we were really pleased with the service we received. This was truly a five star experience and we look forward to returning in the near future. Strongly recommend this vacation destination.

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!

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.
