Loved Dorado in the past

We have stayed at Dorado numerous times in the past. Have always loved it. We stayed again the week of March 11th to the 18th. The food was always good. This time other than the breakfast which is great. The lunch and dinners were worse than terrible.I'm not that picky but they were hardly edible. I think whoever is in charge is trying to get to creative. All the items came with some kind of sauce YUK! One day for lunch I ordered the Grouper this was the worst piece of fish I have ever had. I have had grouper numerous times and always like it. No way was this grouper.I regret it but I don't think we will be going back.

Mucho Gusto

Excellent holiday! First of all I am very much a "look on the bright side" kind of vacationer. While our holidays were the same, I am sure there are members of our group who's review would not read as positive. We just spent a week here travelling with a group of 4 couples and 7 teenagers 5 of whom are preparing to graduate from High School. It was the first time to Ixtapa for all of us and we couldn't have been happier with this lovely resort community and the location of the resort was perfect! Travelled via West Jet Vacations and we were greeted with smiles and beer when we arrived at the airport and then again at the resort. Our 6 rooms were scattered throughout the 11 floors of the hotel and with no wifi except in the lobby, it was important to make plans to meet up etc or risk wasting time trying to find your friends. You can pay extra to have wifi throughout the resort. The rooms were plain but very clean and modern. Air conditioning, safe, fridge, shower, lights all worked perfectly. I know a couple of our rooms did need new batteries for the safe and in one room the TV (TV??) didn't work. The resort itself is very clean and comfortable, the pool area was awesome as was the beach! Never a problem getting seats as long as you didn't mind being up by 8, you snooze, you lose! Food was fine most meals, and exceptional occasionally. Much smaller buffets than I have been to elsewhere so you often needed to wait for an omelet or some pasta, but I never went to bed hungry! The International a la carte was great at lunch as was the grill for burgers and fries. The Italian restaurant was awesome but portions are small so order 2 mains or be prepared to grab a snack at the buffet later. Great coffee at the 24 hr cafe. When you feel like you want a change? There are dozens of fabulous places right across the street!! Drinks were plentiful and there was never a wait. Best Margarita? At The Blue Shrimp across the road, best meal? The General - Ixtapa Shrimp was perfect and the deep fried icecream awesome! The activities around the pool were fun but a little less flute music and more dance type would be our preference. Don't miss the foam party in the main pool on Friday!! Favourites: Simon and Raymundo at the swim up bar, Benito at the buffet! One day we took the bus to Playa Linda (12 pesos) and then boats to Ixtapa Island (50 pesos return) where you can rent snorkels etc, have some great shrimp etc, and enjoy the ocean without the waves. Another day we bused to Zeha for the market but discovered that the market across the street had more to offer! Ultimately, these holidays are what you make of them, I would definitely return to this resort because of the staff and the location! Mostly what I enjoy, is spending time with my friends and making new friends in the pool!!! To all my wonderful new friends from Kelowna, Edmonton, Calgary, Drumheller, and mostly to the great family and friends from Minnesota, you will forever be in my heart as part of a great holiday.

First Experience in Ixtapa and at the Sunscape Dorado Pacifico

Our experience at this this hotel was remarkable from the moment we arrived. The staff were incredibly personable, helpful and cheerful! The hotel was very clean and check-in was a breeze. We joined the Sun Club when we booked our reservations and we were extremely happy to have done so. Our hats go off to some extraordinary staff that we call new friends. Juan from the Sun Club went over and above with his expertise, friendliness and happy nature. He also remembered us each time he saw us. Simon and Raymundo in the pool bar area were fantastic, cheerful, speedy and knowledgeable at both their jobs and in their personalities. These three men are an asset to the Sunscape. Take good care of them. The pools, beach areas, restaurants and buffet were delicious. The french fries at the snack bar were a must for snacking each day! NOTE: One night the music was extremely loud and went very late with fireworks following. This might need to be looked at and possibly changed. Some vacationers such as ourselves go to sleep by 10:00 or so and children even earlier. Thank you for a very enjoyable and relaxing vacation!

Always a memorable stay at Sunscape Dorado each year, year after year.

This is our second year being part of the Sun Club and we enjoyed the quick check in and wonderful snacks there. The staff there were very friendly. We truly enjoy Simon and Raymundo working the pool side bar. They have smiles and are always so friendly. They make a good drinks and like to have fun with the people around the bar. A huge shout out to Antinio for making miles and miles around the pool serving drinks to everyone. He is the best. Staff remembers you when you each visit. Makes it so much more personable. Had room service this year and it was very good. Until next time...

We stayed here in December 2016 and had an amazing time! The staff were absolutely incredibly friendly and helpful and remembered you each and every time. Everything was over the top. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the beach area was very nice with the cabana type areas. The breakfasts ran later for people who don't like to get up early which was a real treat. The food was delicious and we really enjoyed the theme nights. It is a very well-rounded meal plan. Drinks were delicious as well. We had some amazing people who we met there. I wish I could remember all of their names. The boys at the swim up bar were a blast. They kept us entertained and laughing the whole afternoon. We were also treated like kings on the beach by another service who just kept bringing us drinks. He was so prompt it was also difficult for us to keep up....but we did! Thank you to everyone. You made our stay perfect. I look forward to going back again. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Ixtapa!
