Stayed at this resort for the first two weeks of March. Central location on beautiful Playa El Palmar beach and short walk to the many shops and restaurants across the street. The hotel is a bit on the older side but very well maintained. We had a Family Suite on the 18th floor which had incredible views of the entire...

My husband and I stayed here for the last 2 weeks in February. The staff at the front desk were very helpful. We were not bothered at all by timeshare sales people. Security was great.

Sunscape has gone from a 4star to a 1star in my opinion. Amstar (corporate owners) have gone from any kind of luxury to dirt cheap accommodations WITHOUT reducing the price of staying there. They removed all call liquor- bar pour only now. Removed all snacks from the room mini bars. Stock the mini bars with 2 beers, 2 cokes and...

This resort is definitely not a four star! Absolutely horrible beds. It is absolutely on reasonable for someone to be expected to pay $1200 for a week of a mattress just full of foam pieces.

Excellent resort with exceptional staff to help you enjoy your holiday. Sea food & Italian restaurant excellent and the service is exceptional.

Sunscape Dorado Pacifico is our destination of choice! My wife and I have made this resort our winter getaway for the past five years. We have no regrets, the service and food is outstanding. It's location, on the beach, is ideal as it is also directly across from the city center and town square. Loved it and will be returning!
