great place to stay!

We stayed at the Sunscape Dorado in September 2017. We had the best service from the most friendly employees Rodrigo, David, Brian, Freddy and Mario to name a few made our visit even better! Our room was perfect with the most amazing view. The bed was comfortable. The food was good although we were out a lot so we tried the breakfast on the last day of our visit and wished we would have tried it sooner. We had lunch and dinner only once and they were both good the outdoor restaurant close to the beach is perfect to watch the sunset. It was the slow season so we never had to wait for anything. The weather was perfect which was probably my biggest fear we only had rain a couple of afternoons which didn't stop us from doing what we wanted. I can't wait to go again.

Aging Property

Tried out Dorado for a three night stay after being at Embarc in Zihuatanejo. All in all, it shows it's age and I can't say it is gracefully. But, you get what you pay for. Good central location for Ixtapa with lots of beachside activity. But some of the rules are annoying; like no eating pool side, have to go to dining area. No taking beach towels to your room. And the food....the buffet is like eating at circus circus, very low budget. The beach side restaurant struggles to be edible but the only outstanding item we had was the fresh shrimp cocktail and tacos for which you had to pay extra. The rest of the food seemed prefabricated and fairly dry or tasteless. All in all, I found the Zihuatanejo side by playa la ropa to be much more beautiful and user friendly. The only saving grace of the facility is the warm and friendly staff. Beware of the UVC membership, I bought one and am definitely NOT getting my money's worth!!!!!

Great vacation

Recently stayed at this all inclusive resort and had a great stay. staff is friendly, welcoming, and very attentive; I recommend that you hang out at Manitee's bar located at the pool and ask for Simon or Angel, they are great! Room's are comfortable and clean, hotel grounds are well kept. Good environment for all and very family friendly. I would definitely recommend to all.

Pros and cons, mostly pros

Minor Cons just to help improve resort NOT to criticize: facility could use some minor upgrades such as repainting pool and retiling the pool to match room And resort upgrades. Would be cool if a couple more bridges were made for some Shade time to avoid crowding. redoing mirrors in room bathrooms to go with upgrades and facets in lobby bathroom to match throughout facility. need baby changing station in all restrooms or designated changing facilities throughout resort. At least 1 stall per restroom with changing station would be nice or designated family restroom and air conditioned nursing station to avoid returning to the room. New refrigerators are a must, especially to keep Babies milk cold For night time bottle. Need air conditioning in windows restaurant, too humid and gets uncomfortable to eat in heat. Need Way more fans in out door patio and restaurant for comfort.Wooden deck at barefoot grill must be repaired to avoid injury, but very nice atmosphere and nice Beach views.Need more staff to monitor slide. Maybe lifeguard at top of slide guiding kids to go to prevent injuries. Add An umbrella and chair at the top of slide for employee. Still have other lifeguard at the bottom guiding people to move out of the way. Reinforce how to slide down to avoid injuries. Saw at least 5 accidents , One bloody.Bathrooms, pathways and elevators need someone to constantly dry paths to avoid injuries. My dad fell and I almost fell several times. Towel situation, designate staff to remove towels that look wet and used from seats more frequently, IF personal belongings are not Present. Rule is every 60min , but not followed. They come to empty towel bins a few times. Staff should not allow people to push chairs to edge of pool because it blocks paths. Need to be a little more strict with that. Misters throughout resort would be cool to beat the heat when out of the pool. Pros!!Fabulous staff , very polite and attentive! Always clearing plates quickly. Kids explorer club: fun kid activities. Kids loved afternoon hands on activities scheduled daily. Staff is awesome! They sang to my daughter for her birthday on a whim! Thank you for making her feel special. Area has cute playground for the kids and a climbing wall. Pool bartender staff was quick and awesome! They would remember everything and already knew what you wanted before you asked! Location is beyond fabulous!!! Awesome views, very worth any upgrade fee. 20minute drive from the airport. Most activities are 15-20min way.Shows are cute, kids loved them andNever wanted to miss. Not broadway , but entertaining, some funny,and somewhat professional. Food was themed daily. Some food could use more seasoning, BUT overall youCould find something for everyone. Resort has a tons of seating surrounding pool Area and on the beach.Aside from injuries, the slide was a hit! Our Kids Could not get enough!!! Wish they had a water area where water squirts down and up like at Disneyland bugs land . Like a little splash zone for little ones. Baby pool Was awesome!!! Could not get daughter out of there. Rooms are beautifully remodeled . Very nice and comfortable. Thank you for an awesome experience my kids will never forget! Love your staff, very high quality workers. Love resort!!! Hope con list helps with making your location even better!!!! Cons were not meant to knock the resort , just to assist on suggestions from a travelers perspective.
