Good Vacation

The resort was small, but fun. The bartenders were awesome. Very friendly and personable! The food was good, especially the lasagna. We had to wait for awhile, but it was not too long. The rooms were awesome and the air conditioning never went out, which has happened before on previous vacations in different resorts. You had to pay for WIFI, which I think, should be included. The nightclub was fun and then we went for chicken wings that ROCKED. Overall it was a great fun vacation for the family.

Good purchase

The resort is conveniently located 20 mins from Puerto Plata airport. The grounds are well kept and the resort itself is truly a beauty. Customer service was excellent no complaints in that area. The food ok. I would have liked more of the traditional Dominican plates. I would definitely suggest this spot to all. It is relaxing and makes you feel like you landed in paradise. *Only setback is that the workers start working early, and the noise in the hallway can be heard in the rooms.

Sunscape Vacation Review

We just returned last night from our 5 day vacation at the Sunscape Peurto Plata. We were very pleased overall with our experience there. I have a family of 5 so we went with two rooms....both Junior Club Suites and we are very glad we did. Very spacious and well worth the extra few hundred dollars. The rooms are very nice and the cleaning service was great. The food was above average but if you want Coke and Sprite it simply does not taste the same as in the US....just an off taste. The staff are not skimpy on the alcohol with the mixed drinks so enjoy!!! There are some speciality restaurants bit we enjoyed Windows the best as there is a wide range of choices there. The pasta bar is excellent as is the chicken cordon bleu. The burgers served aren't the best but the chicken is outstanding. There is a pizza place that is decent as well. The main pool is great....lots of fun....great entertainment and it is always fun to meet people from other countries. Everyone was friendly and was there to have a good time. All of the staff on the resort were really really great people......friendly, helpful, and extremely appreciative of any sort of tip. We made sure we were very good to them. They work hard and I am sure are underpaid. We took the catamaran excursion which took you to 2 different spot for snorkeling. Buy the excursion on the site, not from vendors on the beach. They are $20 cheaper per person on the beach but it is NOT the same excursion. They feed you lunch on the boat plus all the alcohol you want. It goes from 8:30am-2;30pm....$80 per person....well worth it. There are excursions to go into town but I felt they were overpriced. We just got a taxi and got a quote for $40 and our driver took us all over and showed us the sites and the culture. Took us downtown and got out of the car and walked with us all over. It was cool seeing the culture of the people and what it is really like there.....not just from a resort perspective. So $40 for 3 hours plus I have him a $20 tip. Instead of paying $65-$80 per person for a family of 5, it was just $60 total and had our own personal tour guide. I have heard the beaches at Punta Cana are the best, but the beach at Peurto Plata certainly was no slouch, plus you are much closer to a town. The only thing annoying about the beach was some of the locals coming on and constantly trying to sell you stuff....but all you have to do is say no thanks and they are pretty good about it. The entertainment was very good.....There are some extremely talented entertainers/dancers there.....fun to watch. Some of the men and women i saw could work at big time places. I would recommend this resort to others for sure. We had a great time. Thanks to all of the staff.....They were outstanding and also really fun to talk with.

Great

This resort is more on the smaller side compare to others but I love it because it gives me fast access to almost any place I want to go. The food was really good and so was the service. I will come again

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

Just 20 minutes from the airport so getting to the resort is a breeze.

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.

  • 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.
