This is a small resort with only 2 a la cartes (the Italian is dekicious) but no limit or reservations required! The buffet served all day had omelette and pancake/waffle grills and was differently themed for lunch and dinner everyday! A 24 hour cappuccino bar had wonderful treats but was the only snack food available in the evening. 3 bars...

We are planning a trip starting January 25. Our weather network indicates highs of 23 during our trip. Wondering what to pack? I thought it is usually warmer there. The "Z....." weather forecast indicates 30 each day and it is so close to Ixtapa? Can anyone tell me what temperatures are like there now?

A group of 6 adults spent last week at the Sunscape. We had a great time! The resort isn't overly huge, so it was easy to get around.

Everyone is friendly and helpful. Simon at the pool bar makes you feel at home right from the start. There are a LOT of repeat customers. That's got to say something about this resort. Jorge at the beach bar is great.

We've been coming down to the Dorado Pacifico in Ixtapa for over 20 years. The service from Simon at the pool bar, Antonio around the pool service, and Jorge at the sunset bar is great! Our room had a fruit plate and a bottle of champagne on arrival. Perfect!
