epic trip

I really enjoyed being greeted upon arrival, although our room wasn't ready since we were early we were still taken care of. We enjoyed the buffet and a welcome drink. Once we arrived to our room, lovely view as well in building 24 we were ready to rest after a long flight. The area was quiet daily and mellow. Room service was good as well when we didn't care to dine in the restaurant. I didn't care for all the vendors chasing you down to buy buy buy. downside. I tipped everywhere because I understand the staff is there to care for our needs. The bartenders were great, drinks ok. The wine not so good. The entertainment shows were great. I really enjoyed Willie Wonka very sweet and helpful. He always wore a smile and embraced with a hug. The casino really waste of all your time, just to pass play a few dollars but no bueno. I would stay here again overall and Punta Cana. We enjoyed the buggy tour and went into town on our own. it was a epic trip, life changing.. The beach loved it, go further from resort you will see why. My husband and I had a great time.. top restaurant Chop sticks yum... ok here's my view of the resort.

Fun and Sun

Loved everything about this hotel....the room was clean and cool, the beach was lovely, many good restaurants, friendly, helpful employees. My only problem was that the cart that was to pick up our luggage on the day of our departure did not arrive; small potatoes for a week of fun. Oh, and our excursions booked in the lobby were excellent also.

Disappointing Deal of Fortune

We chose to book the Deal of Fortune and ended up at Sunscape Dominican Beach. I am a huge fan of reading reviews before we travel to a place. While on this trip, I counted that this was my 15th all-inclusive vacation. While doing my typical research prior to vacationing, I was very excited about Sunscape. Reviews sounded great! Minor complaints, but some people just can’t be pleased. Though we made the best of our trip, I would not return to this property and wish it would be removed from a choice on the Deal of Fortune as it is not a comparable to the other 3 resorts offered. In our group, there were 6 adults and 2 children, ages 18 months and 4 ½ years. I will be completely honest in my review. Cons: We did not have hot water for 3 days in our room, even after calling and being reassured they would take care of it immediately. This was not okay with 2 sleepy kiddos at shower time. My in-laws (and my husband and I actually) requested a king sized bed. A request of course, but we’ve never had this denied. Neither of these were granted. I didn’t really care too bad for our room, but my in-laws weren’t thrilled. They asked to be moved and they front desk said that wasn’t an option unless they paid for an upgrade. Bull. There is no way the resort was full. So that was frustrating. My in-laws also had a horrible air conditioner. They called for 3 days to get it fixed after sweating horribly while sleeping. Each time being told “no problem” and someone would be up right away. No one ever took care of it. They finally got moved to a new room…with a king sized bed. We all know that sometimes things don’t work. Same thing happens in the states. But try to actually fix it or please the customer. The hotel randomly closed pools, restaurants, and areas around the resort to perform photoshoots for at least a whole day if not more. To ensure guests didn't use certain areas they had yellow caution tape up. It looked super tacky! I assume for advertisement, but we paid to use the resort and were unable to. We were even given a letter to stay in our room one day from 8-10am so they could perform an aerial photo of the property. Outdoor activities were not offered during this time. 8-10am is breakfast time for our kiddos. Not cool. The bartenders at the pool bar obviously did not enjoy their job. My family is pretty happy and easy to please. We love to bond with staff on resorts. Makes it fun! We come with a stack of $1 to tip for good service. We struggled to use much because they just didn’t act like they even cared to be there. Two nights that we were there, vendors came onto the property to sell their merchandise. I typically enjoy this. I like to see their products and often get souvenirs from them. But, they were so pushy! I’m always kind to say “no thank you” when I’m not interested and am typically left alone. They were incredibly pushy. Even went as far as to grab my hand to take me to their table. Very frustrating. We aren’t too hard to please when it comes to food. We eat a lot and enjoy it. All inclusive places typically have a lot of the same foods…some really good, some really bad, and some mediocre. We are aware of this. But my kiddos had very limited options. They don’t like a lot of foods, but could live on pizza, pasta, chicken nuggets, hot dogs…you know, junk! Lol. But I didn’t see a chicken nugget the whole week, neither of them liked the hot dogs (and neither did I). There was no pizza to be found at the buffet at night. They pretty much had pasta and bread at every dinner. The buffet just had very limited options for everyone. The adults were fine, but I just hated it for my kids. The staff at the resort were pushy about wanting guests to post reviews on social media. My opinion, if you are good at your job you will get positive feedback. Don’t ask me to do that or insist you will lose your job if you don’t get excellent reviews. We rarely got drinks at the buffet. There was only 1 buffet open at breakfast, so that was the only choice. We would typically eventually at least get water. But we just got our own so we could get a drink. We do serve ourselves at home, but it’s nice to get water, juice, or milk with our breakfast. The pools weren’t crazy clean. The first 4-5 days of our trip, the water level in the main pool didn’t even reach the skimmers because it was so low. Therefore, debris floating on top had nowhere to go. So depending on where we hung out in the pool, we were pushing stuff out of our way. Gross. Continuing with the cleanliness of the pools...we spent most of our pool time at the main pool. It opened at 9am. Pool cleaning didn’t start until 8:45am or later. This is a pretty big pool with lots of trees around it. So there were lots of leaves and stuff in the pool. Loved the shade for myself and my kids, so dealt with the leaves. But I couldn’t believe they didn’t have the pool cleaned before people got in. There are huge geo-tubes (giant sand bags) in the ocean for the entire area of the beach in front of the resort. A bit of an eyesore, but it kept the waves down. So that was a pro with kiddos. We did know they had the geo-tubes and have stayed at places with those before, so we knew what to expect. But some people may not be happy with that view. Wasn’t pretty for pictures, but good for waves! Some of the beach is pretty eroded (hence the need for the geo-tubes), but they’ve done a lot to repair a lot of the beach. We found plenty of space to play and build sandcastles! Housekeeping was unpredictable. They would come at anytime during the day. Not a huge deal since we are gone from like 8am-6pm enjoying the rest of the property. But one night they weren’t there until sometime after 7pm while we were gone to dinner. So we had to go searching for towels and wash clothes for a shower before dinner. The staff had a hard time finding any. How is that possibly? They obviously hadn’t cleaned a lot of rooms so there should be 4 towels for my family to take a shower. Pretty tile floors in the room. Great for cleaning purposes, but not for damp or wet feet. Our babe probably fell 4 or 5 times. The shower was huge! With a rain showerhead and a handle that you could remove from the wall. Floors in the shower were so slick! I put a towel on the floor to shower the kids because the babe fell numerous times in the shower too. The glass shower door was just a partial wall. So the floors got soaked! Again, super slick! We had towels everywhere to keep us from falling. The hotel website said the only wi-fi available was an extra charge. We found out on like day 4 or 5 that that wasn't entirely true. If you went into the theater, there was free wi-fi. If you wanted wi-fi throughout the resort and in your room, there was a fee. Pros: Small resort so we were able to walk the entire property. For some, this could be a con but with the kiddos it was great. Load them up in the stroller and go! No need to wait for a trolley to get us around. There wasn’t one anyway, but it wasn’t necessary with the size of the resort. There’s a pool right at this ocean! Love that breeze in the pool while looking at the gorgeous ocean. And a beach bar right there! There are a few different pools. Loud, quiet, family, mainly adult...plenty of options to please any type of person! The drinks from the bar were pretty good. Lots of options. And pretty quick to get served. We had 1 great server at dinner at the buffet, Marceila I believe was his name. We are Americans and we LOVE our ice cold drinks! Those are hard to find in many destinations. We know this. But we sure love it when we get ice! This server kept the ice coming, the water, and any other drinks we had. It was great. We were disappointed we only had him once. Staff were great to our kids! Many of them obviously love kiddos and I could feel it. My kids loved the attention too. Belkis is a server at the buffet and she loved our little one. Came over every time she saw us regardless of where we sat to talk with him. It was sweet. The rooms were kept clean. Newly remodeled, so overall it was pretty fresh. We had a nice balcony with table and chairs. The kids loved sitting out there and hearing birds and seeing the ocean off to the side. We even sat out here one night for a bit during a thurderstorm. It was nice. Lots of shade! Shade on walkways and in the pools. We would have to move around to stay in the shade, but it was always available. To get into some of the pools there was a walkin area that gradually got deeper. It had a good texture on it so it wasn’t slick. The boys loved running in and jumping into the water. Some of the water is super shallow! It worked out really handy. We could sit in the pool while the kids could both reach. And there were also deep areas in the same pool that would be chest high. We all liked the options within the same pool. Our favorite restaurants were the Hibachi at the show table. In fact we went twice! We love pizza, so we grabbed lunch there a few days and ate by the pool. We also enjoyed the steakhouse by the beach. It was really nice sitting there and seeing the ocean with the great beach breeze! Overall, we made the best of our vacation. We had sand, sun, drinks, food, and a comfortable room. But I have stayed at much nicer for less money. I have been to Punta Cana 3 times and this will be our last time. For the money, we prefer to go to Riviera Maya.

The red carpet check-in, noshing on treats and feeling like rock stars.

Hanging out on El Cortecito Beach, one of the most beachin' beaches in the DR.

Kids get a resort passport that will kick off a scavenger hunt (read: keeps them occupied so you can chill).

Swimming with the dolphins - put your fins in the air (like you just don't care).

The Pirate ship excursion - total blast for you and the young 'uns.

Scuba diving - there's a fee, but the you can't beat the view.

Wringing the stress out of body and soul with delicious scrubs & facials at the spa.

Isla Saona is a boat ride away. Dreamy and secluded.
