Perfect and Stress free

Our experience with Cheap Caribbean couldn't have gone any smoother. We had zero problems with booking, flights, hotel ect.. If you want to have a stress free vacation trust Cheap Caribbean to take care of everything for you... My husband and I (41) traveled with my son (7) and mother (56) and there was something for all of us to enjoy at our resort. We stayed at Sunscape Dorado Pacifico Ixtapa and I can't wait to go back.(play areas for the little one, romantic dinners for my husband and I, and relaxing spa for my mom). Everything was lovely, the rooms, the service, the staff, and the people from Ixtapa Mexio. Most relaxing vacation ever... Be aware the Hotel lobby is not air conditioned but the rooms are.. Also, we used BestDay to pick us up from the airport which was great. The only thing I would change is next time we're flying directly to Ixtapa instead of stopping at Mexico City for connecting flights.

Cheep Caribbean has never done me wrong!

Pros...hard working staff! Very comfortable beds! Recommend the sun club upgrade. spectacular views and perks! Entertainment was a plus. The spa was amazing! Food not bad, loved room service for breakfast. Cons....pool very full on weekend's. staff knew English but you need to know some spanish. They will try to sell you membership...tell you it's not "time share" personally I have no problem saying no. I listened to their speal for about an hour and received a 100.00 gift to the spa or gift shop. We chose the spa..I got a massage and she got a facial. 2 hours worth of pampering at no cost to me! Totally worth it!

Pretty Good

My kids had an awesome time. The only issues were the lack variety of food and the fact that I didn't have hot water to shower. The staff was great and extremely friendly. I would definitely recommend this to a friend. We will be back again.

First timers....

My husband and I stayed in this resort from May 4-8, 2017. It was our first time in Ixtapa also. We highly recommend to get the suns club pass, especially if you plan to stay during weekends. We did it and it was so good to have the benefits of it. Our room # was 2117, in the highest floor. The view was priceless and loud music from the night events at the patio and swimming pool didn't bother us at all. We were very happy with the food of 2 restaurants: Da Mario which offers a la carte Italian food and Blue water - sea food - which was the best of the best! We would like to mention Mr. Joel Navarrete who was very kind, professional and nice to walk the extra mile to make our lunches and diners an extraordinary experience at Blue Water. The view from that restaurant is spectacular as well. We had the romantic diner, it exceeded our expectations! Mr. Navarrete, Abraham, Anibal and Angel were amazing with their service. We'd like to mention some other people who made a great effort to make us feel like home there: Susana, one of the concierge; David at Suns Club Lounge, Evelia at the gift shop; Manuel our housekeeper, Juanita at Coco Cafe, the staff is really nice and pleasant. The location of the resort is very safe and you can even go across street if you want to explore or go shopping for souvenirs. We recommend Sunscape, especially if you have children.

What's to Love

Red carpet check-in at the Sunscape Dorado Pacifico along with refreshing freeze pops to cool you off.

Magic World Aquatic Park where you kids can enjoy waterslides, shallow and wave pools.

Their world-class spa (with stress-smashing treatments) has the only hydrotherapy rooms in Ixtapa.

Swimming with the dolphins (Hi Flipper!), deep-sea fishing, bocce ball and dance classes.

Classes where kids can learn to be a DJ and take photography lessons.

Open air Bali beds and palapas for your beach shade with full food and drink service - unlimited top-shelf drinks.

Epic snorkeling at Playa Las Gatas.

 

What We'd Change

There are dress codes in the specialty restaurants, which means no dining in your swimsuit. But hey, gourmet dining is so worth the effort.

 

Why You Should Go

It's just 20 short miles from the Ixtapa Zihuatanejo International Airport (ZIH).

All Explorer's Club staff are certified for children by the Red Cross - a relief, right?

Two golf courses within minutes of the resort, and tennis courts on site.

Zihuateanejo is 10 minutes away with cute folk art shops, boutique hotels where you can grab a drink, and fresh seafood places to grub. (You get two towns with one resort).

No pesky wristbands.

Quaint and cozy, the towns of Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo are quickly gaining a reputation among tourists seeking rest and relaxation rather than the hustle and bustle of large resort towns.

Hotel Description

Sunscape Dorado Pacifico Ixtapa: Where You Can Veg and the Kids Can Play

Imagine this: you check in on the red carpet at the Sunscape Dorado and are handed a frozen welcome treat. Later, your kids revel in a sand castle-making contest while you lie in an open air Bali bed sipping on a delectable frozen beverage beside crystal blue waters. Your stress? History.

This beach bliss is yours for the taking.

At Sunscape Resorts & Spas, you and your family are treated like royalty - but in a fun, relaxed, non-stiff-upper-lip-way. These smartly organized beach home-away-from-homes promise a ginormous amount of family-centric activities, and deliver Unlimited-Fun® - for the kid in everyone. Yep, the chances to laugh and smile at Sunscape Dorado are endless. You'll enjoy buckets of good stuff that includes:

  • Dwelling in comfy, spacious suites with dreamy views of the Pacific from Mexico's Gold Coast.
  • Giving kids a resort passport that kicks off a scavenger hunt that involves getting stickers from various resort locales (read: keeps them occupied so you can chill).
  • Enjoying a variety of scrumptious restaurants with kid-friendly menus - and unlimited drinks for you.
  • Noshing any time your stomach hollers with 24-hour food/drink kiosks - healthy and kid-friendly.
  • Releasing your kiddos to the Explorer's Club (3-12) so they can burn off some energy with castle competitions, arts & crafts, and more.
  • Sending your 13-17 year-olds to the Core Zone so they can constructively channel their teen angst. Enjoying family entertainment that won't make grandma blush.
  • Cutting loose with dozens of land and water activities.
  • And so much more that won't fit into this bulleted list.
