Great vacation!!

It was all great! If I have to pick what could have been better I think the only thing I can say is that the additional vouchers that was provided seemed like a scam. Extra $200 in resort coupons is useful only if you spend another $200-$300 to use them. My recommendation would be to avoid the sales people who talk to you after you check in to give you details about the resort coupons. I would like if a massage is included in the package...just my recommendation. Also, they do not provide shampoo and toothpaste(they provide body lotion, conditioner and body wash) ...small things that did not really matter to me..but I will mention it as it may help other people and maybe Sunscape will start providing shampoos and toothpaste. Overall it was very good...definitely can be improved but I enjoyed my stay and was very happy with the package.

you get what you pay for

Pros: Cheap. Excellent service during the week when occupancy was low. Friendly & helpful staff. Close to airport & downtown. Relatively clean during the week when occupancy was low. Cons: Watered down drinks. Below average food. Salsa helped, but surprised that guacamole was not included. One working elevator. Bars had weird rules - closing at different times & offering different items. Only one pool. Water temperature was too high & felt dirty. Not strict with vendors entering resort's roped off beach area. Resort coupons provided were essentially unusable due to the requirements and restrictions. Summary: You get what you pay for. Was able to overlook some of the flaws for most of the trip. The resort was overcrowded on the weekend with locals & everything suffered because of it. It was a completely different experience. I would not come back - opting to pay a little more for better quality at a resort I wouldn't want to leave. By the end of the trip, we couldn't wait to leave.

This was not a "luxury accommodation"

The Sunscape's saving grace is their wonderful staff. The hotel itself is under renovations, but we booked under the auspices that it was completed. It was said to be an Apple 5 star which it wasn't. The food was fair at best, not much of a selection at all. We upgraded our room, but was disappointed at the "up grade." Having said that, we were barely in our room as we hung out at the pool all day which was awesome. The pool staff and activities were fantastic. I always had a nice drink in hand, whether I was lounging, or floating around the pool. The back drop you can't beat... Located in the center of the bay, with the beautiful beach at your feet and lush green mountains that surrounded you. Overall, we had a great time, because if you can't be happy swimming around a pool in paradise, something is wrong... We were just disappointed by the misleading description that we were staying at a 5 star with nicer accommodations and food options....

We were on vacation at Sunsacpe from Jan 7-14th with a group of friends. We went into the trip not having high expectations reading other good and bad reviews ourselves. The food was good, we didn't really do the buffet for dinners only for breakfast and a few times at lunch. All the restaurants had good food but I'm not picky with food. We did eat off the resort a few nights too to mix it up! We all really enjoyed having a swim up pool bar and we utilized that the most during the day. Beds were so/so they are 2 full size in the rooms if you don't ask for a king. Some of the others in our group had more comfortable beds then we did. Overall I had no complaints all the staff made our stay very welcoming and fun experience! We would definitely go back!

You get what you pay for

Resort was under construction When we arrive in the lobby. There were paint touch-ups being done around the main bar and throughout the entire Hotel. Customer service was horrible, the staff clearly did not want to be there. Dining options are very limited as one of their main restaurant was closed throughout the entire duration with no explanation. The food that was offered was tasteless. One working elevator in the first two days of our trip. The elevator smells like dirty mold. The hallways also smelled really bad. The room itself was pretty clean add events haven't been cleaned out in a long time which also caused a very unwelcoming order. The mini fridge was not restocked every time housekeeping came. Will not good back even if it is a free trip.

Great Trip

First time at Sunscape Resort. Staff was very friendly and helpful and accommodating . They made us feel very welcome. Room was very clean with great view of the ocean. We even saw a whale swimming in the ocean right off the balcony. They had plenty of activities you could do throughout the day, crafts, bingo, pool games tequila tasting etc. We would for sure go back there again.

The service from the staff was top notch, they were all outgoing and friendly and made a person feel welcome and pampered. I was not thrilled with being overwhelmed the second I reached the resort with a sales pitch. I get that the need to "sell" is required to stay in business, however I would recommend allowing a person to at least check into ones room before pushing sales pitches at them. I would say for the value the sunscape was what I expected, it is not a 5 star hotel however overall it was a nice vacation for the money spent.

Great time!

We had a great time at this resort, with minimal complaints. The only complaints we would have is the following: the pool does not have enough umbrellas... so people would lay their towels on chairs to reserve them because of the umbrellas. So, we burned! Second, none of the restaurants are fabulous. The Italian restaurant was the best, but we only went the last night, which we regretted! Lastly, it's in all-inclusive resort, so it would have been nice to not feel like we had to leave servers/bell men tips. Beyond that though, we had a great time! It definitely is a destination spot for local Mexican families to vacation, but it was still a lot of fun. The room was really nice (only downside was it's shower... it's nice, but it not properly constructed, so the water gets everywhere!) I would definitely go again, but would like to learn more spanish so I could communicate with the staff in their language!

Great Vacay!!

My husband and I traveled as a couple mid February. We really liked this resort. I would recommend it for the price. It is on the smaller size, which was good, because I traveled with a broken leg! The staff works so hard and are so appreciative to provide you with their great service! We spent most of our time at the beach bar and loved meeting new friends there! The food was very good, the drinks very good! I think it's a positive that no reservations are required, but this does make for a long wait during busy times. Guys bring long pants or jeans for the Italian dining. We could never stay up late enough for the entertainment, so I can't comment on that! Too long of a day starting drinking mimosas at breakfast, ha! Our room was on the 9th floor overlooking the resort next door. I would have preferred a room facing the east, so that is something to consider. It was still an awesome view. We went zip lining and really enjoyed this adventure! It was a beautiful drive into the mountains! The only negative I can think of was the lack of Wi-Fi. We could not find a signal anywhere at any time. Don't sweat the small stuff, after all... you are on vacay!!
