Really saddened to see all the bad reviews of late, we have been many times to Mexico, twice last year to this hotel ( Feb and October ) with children 9 and 15yrs ... we are returning over April staying 2 weeks this time, we can’t understand what’s gone so wrong?? Management - was changing I’m guessing November last year, the current manager moving to another AM resort (managers circulate generally as part of their contract) , we were in Sunscape late October 18 and he had one month left. We use Sunscape as a base, no mistaking the hotel is really old, that said it was a great base to be; Location is excellent 85 peso’s to old Vallarta The Staff were honestly 5star, they couldn’t have been lovelier, more helpful, friendly or professional. The rooms we’ve had were simple But really clean, no mold. The breakfast was freshly cooked ( we go early because in AI packages going early gets the best, service, choice of tables and food while it’s freshly served. Barefoot grill was lovely easy lunch and we also like the Mexican, get the waiter to serve a Mexican coffee, or make fresh tablesise guacamole. We’re not big on entertainment, but the guys were excellent, same staff over the year and they all remembered us, which was really nice. Views are amazing, the resort was really clean I’ve never seen a pool attendant work harder. The gardens are immaculate... I can’t work out what’s fine so wrong- the reviews over Christmas were good? PV has amazing restaurants, so we often go out to eat in the evening, the Malecon is a great place to go. If something significant has changed perhaps someone could post an honest updated review, because we had two beautiful holidays ... we’ve stayed in some very sparkly high end hotels in the Caribbean but the experience left me a-little cold .... this isn’t a five star hotel but it doesn’t mean you can’t have a five star holiday .... to everyone heading out there sooner than us .... Safe travels ...
