Never again

1st I like to say the only thing that keeps me from calling the whole experience a disaster is the employees encountered on the resort, the food and drinks were the worst I ever had, and certain restaurants were only open on alternate nights, trying to get a wash cloth was almost impossible, one day they left the wash cloths on the patio table outside of the room, the main attraction, which was the pool was closed down for our entire stay of 6 days, the nightly entertainment was very nice, it was the one thing to look forward to, the accommodations were OK, the spa is phenomenal, but almost everything else was a failure,, very disappointed overall....

Worst Stay Ever!!

I've stayed at many resorts. This by far is the worst!! DON'T go by the pictures. The big pool was closed and everyone was crammed into the small pool. Each morning, the room smelled like sewerage. They would not switch my room. Not a great food selection when SPAM is one of the options. What was safe was an omelette for breakfast, chicken and salad for lunch and dinner was always sketchy. Best bet was overload on fruit. Concierge "Kelly" which isn't her actual name was TERRIBLE! Her presence was Not who I would want guests to interact with. The ONLY employee (I don't know what his title is) that stuck out the most and was completely empathetic to our stay was Starling. Was very nice and professional. He knew I was disappointed with everything but his presence could make anyone smile. Oh and to add insult to injury, "Kelly" offered me a 25 minute massage as compensation.

Not good

The first room we were in smelled like wet basement. The toilet handle also broke. The 2nd room was ok. The view was a bunch of trees. Had yo ask for the room to be cleaned 3 times. Only gave 1 washcloth a day. The main pool was shut down. No beach was not too bad but no clear water. The had mostly pork food. Not the worst but not great either.

What's to Love

Feeling like royalty during the red carpet check-in while you nosh on frosty welcome treats.

Stress-busting spa with a delicious menu of pampering, you-spoiling treatments.

The golden sands of Playa Dorado that are calling your name.

The indoor theatre that offers up some booty-shaking nighttime entertainment. Woot!

Tons of activities for the kiddos, which means more chillaxin' time for you.

The Teleferico Cable Car - the only funicular in the Caribbean.

 

What We'd Change

A la carte dining can fill up at night, so you might have to wait a bit. Good thing you can grab a cocktail or two while you wait to be served.

 

Why You Should Go

27 Damajagua Cascades are near - 27 natural river pools and waterfalls - and there's may be an extra cost, but it's so worth it.

The Sun Club, a family-centric program that features upgraded everything.

A golf course designed by the famous Robert Trent Jones surrounds the resort. Easy to get to when it's your tee time.

The famous Malecon beach strip is full of restaurants/bars, local vendors and Fort San Felipe to visit.

You can hike and bike through lush, tropical terrain - you might even see an exotic bird or two.

Hotel Description

Sunscape Puerto Plata: Aahh-some You Deserves This Unlimited-Awesome

Envision this: you've just landed on the glistening sandy shores of Playa Dorado Beach with the fam in tow. The Atlantic Ocean is your backyard for a week, one where you can perch on a lounge chair and melt into sheer sunshine bliss, while you kids are happily making a sand castle. Do you continue your crazy aah-some chill, or rally and take your brood to the 27 Damajagua Cascades - 27 natural river pools and waterfalls?

Whatever you choose, know that this Beach Family Paradise is ready and waiting to spoil you.

At Sunscape Puerto Plata, you and your family are treated like royalty - but in a fun, relaxed, non-stiff-upper-lip way.

Yep, the chances to laugh and smile at Sunscape Puerto Plata are endless. You'll enjoy buckets of good stuff that includes:

  • Dwelling in comfy, spacious suites where you can savor sunshiny views from your private patio or balcony, and if you're in a family suite - the kids will love the bunk beds.
  • 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)
  • 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.
  • Cutting loose with dozens of land and water activities.
