We swam, we drank, we played!
Swam with Sharks, got stung by un coral fuego!
Amazing candlelight dinner on the beach.
Who knew it was going to cost $10 to get into Punta Cana?? I wish someone would have told me... It was all the cash I had, and it's more than I usually have. I'm lucky I had it with me.
Anyway, I love this airport, it's beautiful. It screams Caribbean as soon as you land. The roof/ceiling is thatched and it's open air. I wish there were …

Historical Traveler Reviews Dreams Punta Cana
Me (27) and my wife (24) stayed at the Sunscape The Beach from December 6th-20th 2004.
Sarnia, Ontario loved Sunscape The Beach!
We were at Sunscape from December 18th - December 25th. We had a great time... The swim-up bar is very nice. Everyone there is super friendly. Victor at the Cafe Kafe makes the best Bomba around! Laureano keeps the fridges stocked! I would definitely go back in the future. P.S. Don't forget the Imodium!

I am a regular visitor to the DR and I have stayed in different parts of the country and therefore in all sorts of different hotels. I was in the DR during the hurricane Jeanne in the Punta Cana region and I was extremely pleased to see that the beaches and the surrounding countryside has not borne any deep scars from the passing of the hurricane. I am a professional in the hotel business in Europe and I have mainly been very impressed by the quality of the hotels in DR.
We had a wonderful week at Sunscape the Beach from December 2 -9th. True, there were a few obstacles, but you must remember, this is also a brand new resort! Much like the first few weeks in a brand new home, a few things need to be fine tuned! We know the resort was new when we booked, so we were prepared for a few disapointments, but we were pleasantly surprised. The staff was wonderful and did all they could to make our stay enjoyable. The pool is the most awsome pool I have ever seen! It winds through the resort, and you can float throughout on the mats provided. There are plenty of lounge chairs along the pool in both sun and shade. The beach is beautiful and well kept, also with plenty of lounge chairs in sun or shade. There were Catamarans, sea kayaks, Sailboards, Boogieboards, paddleboats, water trampoline etc available for your use. They had beach volleyball, water polo, dance lessons, and various games for you to join in if you wanted to. Our room was very nice. The housekeeping staff was terrific, they always made sure we had fresh towels twice a day, and they were more than happy to cater to our needs. The food was very good. Not all the restaurants were open, but with the made to order food stations, pasta bar etc in the buffet restaurant, you really didn't miss having a large selection of a' la carte dining. We had lobster several times, shrimp was available daily, sea bass, roast beef, pork loin, rotisserie chicken, baked salmon, lasagna, pizza... You could have almost anything you wanted. The entertainemt staff were very friendly and would do anything for you. The bar service was terrific. You could have a drink in your hand at all times if that is what you desired. The resort itself is very beautiful. The landscaping needs to mature a bit, but we noticed a big difference from our arrival to when we left, so I'm sure it won't take long. We went to Sunscape the Beach because we were looking for a beautiful resort in the sun where would could have fun and relax. We were not disapointed. We will go back to Sunscape the Beach the first chance we get!
This resort has to be one of the best resorts my boyfriend and I have ever been too. It has just about everything you could think of. From the moment we got there we new we were going to have a great time.
We just came back from Sunscape the beach (from Dec.04th-Dec.11th,2004). We've stayed there for a week with my 1 year old daughter & my husband. The place is absolutely beautiful. It's a big resort, i should say long one, it's in a rectagular shape.
We (2 adults,9 & 12 yr old) have just returned from Sunscape the beach. I probably would not recommend this property at this time. Give this resort 6-12 months to get through the growing pains and it will probably be a five*. The resort is stunning. The pool is amazing (largest in the DR). You can float down the "lazy river" (on mats provided) all the way to the swim up bar. The resort is large so be prepared to walk. We stayed in building 3 (not all are open yet) which is located in the centre of the resort. Building 7 is also central. The beach is nice but the water is rough (it was always quite windy). We were unable to do watersports with the kids because it was so rough. It was good for boogieboards and the water trampoline. Do not take the snorkelling tour offered off the resorts beach. It was so rough and everyone got sick. We did hear the marinarium tour was good for snorkelling(expensive). We did the Bavaro Runners trip which was a great way to see the island. For now the restaurants were disappointing (only 3 open). The buffet is the best bet. There was no disco, explorers club, casino tables, sports bar or movie screen on the beach. They are working hard to get all of these things up and running before peak season starts. The nightly entertainment was lame except for the night they had a magician(excellent).
For this review picture the Lobby at the west end, ocean at the east end. The pool runs west to east with housing buildings along the north and south sides. Only the buildings along the north side are open, some 250 rooms. None on the south side are open, nor will they be any time soon.
While staying at sunscape resort in punta cana I had the greatest time I ever had in a long time. The staff mebers are just absoluty great.
Our family went to Sunscape last July. We have done much traveling all over the Caribbean. Our kids absolutely loved the Sunscape. The prices for all the activities was so much better than anywhere else. Both girls got their hair braided for $40 total. Banana boat rides were only $6 / person. Deep sea fishing was very reasonable. All the Sunscape staff were friendly. The service was the best we've had on an island vacation. No one approached us to buy anything on the beach. The beach was constantly cleared of cups, straws, cigatette butts, etc... Took a walk down the beach past other hotels and saw much seaweed and garbage. The only real negative was the room. Though clean, the room was old and needed serious redecorating. Lighting was very poor. Our air conditioning worked fine, but heard 2 couples complaining about theirs at the front desk. They held a fabulous beach party, that took an entire day to set up. very nice manager's cocktail party w/ champagne and caviar. don't miss the go-kart track(tropical racing)-great fun and transpo is free. Top equipment and run by a very nice German couple. food was average, our favorite was the Italian. They really do push you to buy a bottle of wine there. We did have top shelf liquor from the bars, I have seen several other people say they did not. Entertainment was lame, don't go expecting a las vegas show. The grounds were very clean and beautifully landscaped. We would book our next vacation there w/o hesistation, if the rooms were improved.
