With nearly 200,000 feet of subterranean tunnels in the underground rivers, sinkholes and caverns, desert marshes and a wide variety of marine life and wrecks, Mexico truly is the aquarium of the world. Bordered by the United States to the north and Belize and Guatemala to the south, much of Mexico shares many similarities with Central America, including language, food, a rich history, culture and art.
We had a phenomenal time with the resort and diving! Our divemaster, Gabriel, was fantastic with our group. We had a large range of experience and he was great with everyone. The resort was beautiful and very well kept. The dining was fantastic and service was excellent. I would highly recommend the resort and diving. The only downside was how far the dock was from the dive shop but the staff was willing to take our stuff over and back so it was not a major issue.
I was a little worried about our trip due to reviews of the restaurant, but my fears we totally unfounded. There were always buffets with many options, everything was fresh. Lots of fruits and veggies. I was also concerned about currents for grandkids, but Dive House was excellent. They also worked to find us sites with little or no currents when possible. Overall a very nice vacation/diving with kids and grandkids. Our beachfront room was in need of some TLC, but a very pleasant setting and clean.
The dives were Fantastic. The Dive House crew were attentive and considerate, Sunscape was really nice and still don't know if going/ spending the extra for Secrets would be worth it. We all had a lovely time.
We liked it. Of course, it took us a day or two to get into the rhythm of daily diving at a new place, but it all worked out well. The only thing I would have changed would have been to request a room with 1 queen/king bed. Two beds in our room made it a bit small with all our dive kit, etc. Dive House's DMs were very good. Their tanks? Lots of sizzling O-rings and the tank valves were welded to the cylinders. How do you inspect and maintain a scuba tank if the valve is welded on? Ah, Mexico! :) Check your rig and don't be shy about speaking up!
Overall rating for Sunscape and Dive House was excellent. A very laid back family oriented resort that was quiet at night. All personnel were cheerful, accommodating, and helpful. Food was good with plenty of choices, the beach environment and pools were a great place to be after a morning of diving. Beautiful sunsets. Diving with Dive House was top notch. Very professional. I liked that each day they asked us if we had any preferences of where WE wanted to Dive and what kind of diving did WE enjoy. We usually dove with groups of between 8-12 and had 1-2 Dive masters depending on size.
We were very happy with our vacation at Sunscape Sabor. The value for money in terms of accommodations and food and drinks was very good. Not a ton of variety of food, but considering the price we paid, we have a good selection and good food quality. Bars were first rate, every cocktail we tried was good. The diving was very nice as well, we were really pleased with the service provided by the Dive House, they looked after all of our equipment each day which saved us probably an hour a day that we could spend doing other things, that rinsing and drying our equipment. They were also very professional and accommodating. Dives varied with respect to currents (some were really strong) and visibility, but not one could be considered a bad dive for sure. Lots of things to see, especially lobster, toadfish, crabs and of course every ones favorite turtles. The atmosphere at the resort was very laid back, very few “rules”. No wrist band required, not reservation needed for restaurants and lots of chairs everywhere, so no need to get up early to get a beach chair. The staff were very friendly and other guests were polite and considerate. I would definitely go back.
The Sabor was good. No hassle with beach chairs, policy of use or lose after 30 minutes. Nice beach, great bar service; Mexican restaurant very good; Italian restaurant, beside lasagna, forgettable and very limited - white sauce awful; adult only dining site, nice for adults without kids; service excellent, staff very friendly; diving very good and company with hotel excellent with service and assistance; food overall good; breakfasts very good; barbecue's outside at pools, sometimes okay other times badly under cooked meat, chicken, sausage, but burgers okay. Twenty four hour food access, nachos weak; rest decent but limited choices, fries often under cooked. Place is clean and well kept. Entertainment got folks involved; good options for children- activities; water options available at resort; Cozumel was windier and ocean had less visibility then usual but still cannot beat the reefs, formations etc. Saw many nurse sharks, Eagle rays, turtles, eels, and the usual reef fish.
We had a wonderful time. Sunscape was very nice, the food excellent and all the staff very personable and wonderful. Our rooms were on the beach very close to the water which we loved. We participated in a bike tour which was interesting and used the sailboats on a windy day which was a total gas. The diving was spectacular, huge specimens of eels and groupers, Hawksbills and Laggerhead turtles, beautiful spotted rays. Lots of variety, very good dive masters, small groups. It was our second visit to Cozumel. Absolutely love the drift diving.
