Spend a little more and go else where

We were really nervous about booking the trip to this resort because the price was on the lower side for the amount of days we were looking to stay. We stayed at a Dreams Resort in La Romana and had a wonderful time and were afraid that we were going to be disappointed in Sunscape. The trip started out on the wrong foot with the resort's reservation department not booking the right amount of rooms when they received my booking from Cheap Caribbean. I had all my documentation from Cheap Caribbean confirming that I had booked two rooms for 3 total adults but the resort had only reserved one room. It wasn't resolved until 7PM the next day after my arrival. The front desk ladies of the VIP lobby did make sure e were all together one the first floor and ended up being right across the hall. They were wonderful to deal with and I understand it may or may not have been their fault initially. I ended up paying for the two rooms for the whole trip, despite not actually being in two rooms until the next day. The hotel rooms we were in smelled musty. They just upgraded the hotel rooms, like the floors and the bathrooms but they kept the old furniture from before and you can tell it's just outdated. If you are one that doesn't prefer a hard bed, best of luck to you. The beds are super hard. I ended up having to sleep on some of the pillows because the beds were so hard. I actually had a knot in my shoulder blades because the bed was like a rock. The cleaning ladies did a fine job at cleaning the room; however, they did not stock the fridge on multiple occasions. With all the guests not being able to drink the water, the resort could really do a better job at keeping the rooms stocked with cold water. I had to call the front desk several times to get more water and beverages stocked in the room. The rooms do not have any booklets for information about the resort, such as food options or even a room service menu. We had to ask the front desk to bring us the room service menu. Not to mention, in one of the rooms the hot water did not work at all in the shower. We booked our reservations as VIP from the get go. It was something we did when we went to Dreams in La Romana and it was super worth it. Dreams La Romana had a VIP pool that was just for VIP holders, but also for adults only and Sunscape Dominican Beach doesn't have a pool just for adults. To be honest, they were just letting anyone at the VIP pool, so it was kind of pointless at the end of the day. The biggest bonus is having access to room service in your room and the wifi is included, I suppose. For a group that is traveling without kids and doesn't have kids, we wish there were an option to avoid kids. Nothing wrong with bringing your children, but they like to have fun in the pool and run around and splash, and some people just don't enjoy that on their vacation. Just FYI if you're booking VIP. Also, half the time room service tried to tell you that you weren't VIP and you had to insist that you were for them to check. The food from room service looks like its precooked and then saran wrapped and microwaved when ordered. Also, they completely ignore your request for more than 2 sets of silverware. On a few occasions that we ordered room service, they had to bring requested items to us twice. I would truly blame the language barrier on this, but still slightly frustrating when you're paying for the VIP service option and tipping the person bringing the food. If you are staying at Sunscape Dominican Beach, I would highly recommend requesting a room that is closest to Bavaro because that is where all the restaurants are. We were on the furthest side of Dominican Beach and it is about a ten minute walk to all the restaurants with the exception of the Mediterranean restaurant. Sometimes if the staff are riding around in the shuttle carts, you can catch a ride. But when you're drinking all day as apart of your inclusive package, let's be real, a 10 minute walk sucks. On the second to last day of our trip, we ate breakfast at World's Cafe, which is a breakfast buffet. We specifically ate omelettes simply because it's cooked right there and not apart of the buffet, as you never know how long it's been sitting out, etc. Our entire party got sick that afternoon. On Friday, which we were due to leave Saturday, we were so sick we were unable to leave the hotel room. The three of us were vomiting and had very severe diarrhea. We all had fevers, major cold sweats, and were very fatigued that we slept the entire day and were so weak we couldn't leave or walk for long period of time. I spent the day going to the bathroom to vomit in the trash can and having diarrhea at the same time about every 30 minute intervals. There is a medical building on site that we were physically unable to make it to. We had to call the VIP desk and have anti-biotics for bacteria and also anti-diarrhea medication delivered to our room for $45, which did not help at all. We were all extremely nervous about physically being able to withstand a full day of traveling through airports with hours of layovers and having to vomit and diarrhea throughout the entire trip. Thankfully, the symptoms died down a notch, but not at all. I am just now, three weeks since the Friday we were sick at the resort, being able to actually eat whole foods and my bowel movements have retired to semi-normal. After two trips to the doctor back home, a stool sample tested positive for salmonella from eating at the resort's World Cafe. Salmonella poisoning is by far the worst form of sickness I've ever dealt with. Unable to eat anything without becoming ill and vomiting. Having to be prescribed medication to keep from vomiting, but the fatigue the comes along with it. Constantly feeling drained and needing to sleep. The bathroom trips every 30 minutes or multiple times an hour. Because of this, we will never be coming back to this resort. We will stick to the higher end, luxurious resort, Dreams. Just for the VIP pool and overall quality of the two resorts in comparison, but also because it's apparent that this resort has major issues with it's food handling practices. READ THE REVIEWS, FOLKS. Read the reviews specifically on Facebook. There are MULTIPLE comments about receiving food poisoning from this resort and I'm talking recently. Due to the mishap when we arrived, I started researching this resort more with plans to transfer to another and that's when I discovered the comments, and so many of them, about the food. We shook it off and just decided to give the resort a chance. Which it wasn't bad in all. The staff is friendly and fun. It's clean resort and they're still working on the landscape from the hurricane. But after reading the reviews about the food and receiving salmonella ourselves, DON'T BOTHER COMING HERE.

Sunscape Dominican Beach Excellent!

We took a risk and elected the deal of fortune option. It worked out GREAT! Sunscape Dominican was a great resort. PROS It was extremely clean and well maintained. We were very surprised to not see any bugs in the rooms. The food was pretty good. The restaurant food wasn't always hot enough but still tasted good. The resort keeps the vendors off of the beach for the most part. If they are allowed they stay away from you when you are in chairs. Never had an issue finding a chair at the pool or on the beach ALL the staff was super friendly CONS The beach has big sandbag things that look like they create nice pools for calmer swimming. The problem is that they are not great to look at, would be great if they were painted with whales or something tropical. Seaweed on the beach BUT the resort does and EXCELLENT job keeping it cleaned up.

Take the time to read this review

My family takes a couple vacations a year and usually end up at an all-inclusive resort. We booked a surprise trip for our family not knowing the resort we would get. When we were informed the week before we left my wife and I both rushed to read more about it and check out the reviews. We were shocked to read most of them as they were very negative. This left us apprehensive to say the least. I should also state that we were traveling with our 4 kids ages from 17 to 3 years old and we were there for 8 days. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly and shown to our rooms. We did have to insist that they were adjoining as that was our one stipulation. With some work and effort we were accommodated. THE ROOMS Overall simple, nothing fancy but comfortable. Very clean. Beds were comfortable, different firmness in pillows which was nice. Bathroom a bit small but manageable. Also very clean. Cleaning staff very nice and thorough. THE RESORT GROUNDS Extremely well kept. Constant cleaning and gardening. The pools were nice and clean. Not a lot of options for pools but it never felt crowded. Only negative was no hot tubs. There were 2 near the main pool but they were not "hot". They had lots of stuff for kids of all ages and there were constant contests or entertainment going on. We did not attend any of the evening shows so I am not sure how they were. They do put on nightly outdoor movies near the beach which was a nice experience. THE BEACH Gorgeous. Super soft sand. Again, well kept. Very little seaweed except one morning after a storm which took most of the day to clean up but there was a lot of it. The wave break giant sand bags actually made it much nicer with small kids. Always had security officers patrolling the area. At first this was a bit unnerving but then it became reassuring and made you feel safe. There were some peddlers but they were not pushy at all. THE FOOD Overall I would rate the dining 3.5 - 4 out of 5. The buffets were typical of most all-inclusive. The pizza shaq was really good but small so it wasn't always ready when you were. The dinner restaurants were very good. I highly recommend the Mediterranean Olive Branch, it was our favorite with theJapanese hibachi Chop-Stix right there with it. The French one was also very good. The Italian was our least favorite along with the Chinese. Dinner buffets were what you would expect with some good options and others I didn't care for. The bars were typical with local alcohol rail drinks and beers. THE STAFF Very happy and polite. Got to know you personally and remembered you later. Helpful. Fun. Couldn't really ask for more. A staff member "Willy Wonka" went out of his way to help my wife one morning when she had a sore throat and our cleaning lady asked about how she was feeling over the next few days. Above and beyond what you would expect. The entertainment staff did an awesome job capturing your attention and the fitness staff was equally awesome. This resort is family friendly and our family felt safe, welcome, and made memories that will last. NEGATIVES One of the big complaints I read about was the pushy vendors on the grounds and the time share sales pitch. The vendors are only there 2 nights a week and they weren't that pushy. They gave my kids lots of free welcome gifts just for walking by. Necklaces and bracelets. We did purchase a few things and negotiating was easy and fair. The time share pitch was actually informative and tempting. I get not wanting to waste a couple hours if you aren't interested. Tell them straight out that you are not going to attend, it'll end there. I'm sure they will try to get you to go but I got the impression that they are not allowed to push guests into anything. I know some who said they flat out will not attend and that was that. We did go a few days into our trip on our schedule not theirs. If you plan on taking more trips to all inclusive resorts in the next few years I would recommend you see what they are offering. Other complaints were about the food. We had a bad experience at the Italian place. Food took way too long to get there and when it did it wasn't anything special. But the other places were all really good. Timely. Friendly. I've been to some high end places and this may not be cream of the crop but I would consider it very good, especially for a resort. Try the shrimp salad at Mediterranean!

What's to Love

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.

Water excursions about the wazoo - floating spas, catamaran sailing, whale watching & more.

 

What We'd Change

The restaurants can be busy with lots of families, but you have plenty of options and you don't have to make reservations.
 

Why You Should Go

It's 25 minutes from the airport - family fun is hoot and a holler away.

You're right in the center of beautiful Bavaro City, where you can shop, hike, bike & more.

Hoyo Azul, a natural lagoon with crazy gorgeous azure water, is 38 minutes away.

It's 10 minutes from Cocotal Golf Course designed by Pepe Gancedo, Spanish champion.

The resort has a coolio indoor theater perfect for live nighttime entertainment. Par-tay.

It's 15 minutes from downtown Punta Cana and 45 min from La Romana.
