Punta Cana: see full review
Sunscape Beach Punta Cana is a five star resort located in the Playas Uvero Alto
region of Punta Cana. The focus of this resort is definitely on family
fun, this is not a wild nightlife destination. First of all,
The first thing you’ll notice about Sunscape Beach Punta Cana is that the property extends
away from the ocean. While the grounds are beautiful, there can be some quite lengthy walks
from your room to the beach. Depending on where you like to be – buildings 1 & 2 are closest
to the beach and 4 & 5 are the furthest away. Make sure you request a building and ocean or
mountain view upon booking. Following this up with an e-mail to the hotel is a good idea.
The rooms at Sunscape Beach Punta Cana are quite small, but immaculate and have very
comfortable furniture. Most rooms have four-poster beds (one king size or two doubles)
instead of the usual mattress on a cement slab. Other conveniences in the rooms include:
wall safe at no charge; minibar (restocked daily); 24 hour room service menu; satellite TV;
hairdryer; alarm clock; dry-cleaning and laundry service is even available for a reasonable
Dining at Sunscape Beach:
The resort has one buffet restaurant and six “themed” a la carte options (Japanese, Mexican,
Local seafood, steaks, Italian)– none of which require a reservation. The idea of not having
to wait in line just to find out that the next available dinner reservation is the day after
you leave is very comforting. However, when the resort is full guests can sometimes have
lengthy waits to get a table – not really a bad thing (have a drink while you wait). You
will find that the food at this resort is really quite good, compares to almost any other
resort we’ve been to – the Japanese restaurant is our favorite. Do note that dress for
supper at most restaurants is what they call “casual elegance” – guys need pants!
The pool is probably the most striking feature of Suncape Beach Punta Cana – it extends from
the lobby all the way to the beach and has Jacuzzis off of it, waterfalls in it. The
separate kids’ pool keeps a lot of the splashing away and there is an ample supply of pool
floats for relaxing. Perhaps the nicest pool in Punta Cana!
Sunscape Beach is no different than anywhere else when it comes to beach chairs and palapas.
There are 620 rooms, they can’t put up 1000 palapas, a resort simply can’t supply enough of
them for everyone. Unfortunately it’s a resort reality – get out of bed early, play the game
and go put your towel over a chair to reserve it.
Sunscape Beach Punta Cana also has a very good kids’ program (the Explorer’s Club) for
children of ages 3-12. Activities are fully supervised and pagers given out to parents – a
comforting touch. There is also a kids sleepover available one night a week in tents on the
beach – haven’t tried this one, but have heard good things about it (kids tend to come back
exhausted the next day though).
Sunscape Punta Cana offers a wide variety of activities (as most family resorts do). The
entertainment is excellent – main features are an Elvis impersonator and a Micheal Jackson
show. Daily activities include:
- Horse-back riding
- Sailing (Sunfish)
- Water bikes
- Scuba intro in the pool
- Try out the water trampoline
Only drawbacks to the Sunscape Beach Punta Cana resort are: that the beach is not the most
manicured in Punta Cana and waves can be quite rough in Playa Uvero Alto; there are quite
long walks to the beach; many of the available excursions are quite far away from this hotel
(although deep-sea fishing is quite close).
Tips for Sunscape Beach Punta Cana
- Bring water shoes as there are hunks of coral in the water.
- If you’re going in the water with kids, swim directly in front
behind coral reef (hides from waves a little)
- Get up early and reserve a palapa
- If you’re going as a family, waiting for tables at dinner can
be a pain. Send someone half an hour before the first service
to put your name in (this way you won’t be feeding your kids at
- Remember to tip
- English of staff is quite good, they appreciate being spoken
to in Spanish – learn some Spanish phrases.
- There is not much of a nightlife here, so don’t go to Sunscape
Beach expecting to party!
