Overall a good value but had some issues...

Nice resort for the price but had room for improvement. My biggest problem was that the main pool was closed the entire time we were there. Was disappointed we did not get to use the swim up bar. Luckily it was not crowded in the smaller pools. Also the timeshare presentation was brutally long and we felt pressured into doing it like the employees livelihood depended on it. Be firm and tell them NO if you value your time Lots of vendors on the beach but if you just let them know you're not interested they will move on but you can actually haggle a great deal out of them. The restaurant on the beach was great. Food was ok but can't beat the location. Beach was nice and much cleaner than the surrounding area. Never had trouble finding a chair. Wewent in the off season though so overall the resort was not crowded. Spent the extra on the Sun Club room and it was well worth it to be off to the edge where it was quieter and closer to the beach. Room was nice and very clean. Everything seemed recently renovated. AC goes off every night at 4am until 7am. It can get warm quick in there if you don't sleep with it cranked up. The Buffett pretty much serves the same stuff every day. The sit down restaurants are ok but not great. They are not all open at the same day though. Overall was a fun experience but might spend a little more on the next all inclusive trip. Really wish the rooms were beachfront/view.

Great Trip

Had a great time at Sunscape Puerto Plata, there were many dining options, but my favorite was the little coffee shop called Coco Cafe, it was a hidden gem with tasty sweets and great coffee. There were many activities to do throughout the day and into the late evening such as zumba and other dance parties, as well as activities for children. The resort was very clean, and in great condition, and the staff was all very friendly. I would defiantly recommend Sunscape Puerto Plata to friends.

Great vacation for a great price

The room is nothing fancy, but clean and comfortable. We didn't get clean towels every day, which was disappointing. The food in the Italian restaurant was delicious. The other restaurants were okay. We only saw one show which was good, but others vacationing with us said there were better shows on other nights. Overall, it was a Good experience. We would do it again.

Not great

The room was small (we were going to upgrade because it would have included the "premium" liquor but it wasn't worth it). The shower didn't drain fast enough so there was always a lot of water on the floor. For a stand up shower, I would expect there to be 1. a full door and 2. the shower floor to be a little elevated from the bathroom floor. But that wasn't the case so expect to use a towel or two to soak up the water. Speaking of towels, whenever they delivered towels, we always had to request more because they weren't clean. There were 3 of us and there would usually be 1 out 3 (sometimes all 3) towels/washclothes that were dirty. Food wasn't that great (mediocre at best). The liquor selection wasn't great and what they had was disgusting (banana flavored tequila anyone?). You can get "premium" liquor if you join the sunscape club however that only consists of Baileys and Crown Royal. So not worth it. The bartenders and waitresses were super nice though so that made the place bearable.

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.

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.
