Sunscape Sabor has recently been renovated and from what we conceive they are owned by Secrets next door. We booked with Apple Vacations which gave us quick transport to our resort and also had a concierge where we could book excursions. Arriving at Sabor we were impressed with the bright white villa and colorful paintings and decor. My wife and I were on our 2nd anniversary joined by our friends to celebrate their birthday. Luckily our room was ready but their's was not for another 30 mins. We were whisked away by a bell hop all the way to the other end of the resort by the Portofino restaurant.
This section used to belong to another resort (Regency Park) but was beautifully transformed. Our room, 3911 was very spacious with tile floors, two full size beds, TV and bench. Our friends had a nice couch and not sure why we did not. The room was well air-conditioned and had no problems at all with smells, mold, damage, etc. A mini fridge held soda, water and beer and was restocked. It did take a couple days to get room service and once we reported it to the front desk it was never an issue. Once settled in we were hungry and went to the Market Cafe where you have breakfast each day. Lunch is also available here each day, buffet style. There is also the Seaside Rest. with burgers, nachos and quesadilla's. Best guacamole and pico de gallo I've had in a while and they are generous servings. Don't feel limited by your choices, the staff are happy to accommodate to your needs. The buffet generally carries the same items each day but there is a lot to choose from you can certainly diversify your meals, especially with the giant omelettes. (They will even make an egg white omelette if you ask.)
After lunch we filled up our tervis cups with lids at the bar with some margaritas and hit the beach.
*Tip - If you bring your own cup you can avoid using the small 12 oz. red cups they use.
The beach is surrounded by coral reefs and these beaches were a little more rough but not intolerable like some people say. Do bring water shoes for the ocean because it is rocky and you will scratch your feet. We brought some snorkeling gear (you can rent some for free) and had a great time being followed around by tiger fish.
Friday evening a Mexican fiesta was held with authentic cuisine and grilling meats on site. make sure not to sit too close unless you want to smell like smoke. The entertainment was fun and interactive. We took some candy from the pinata and left it in our room. BIG MISTAKE. The next morning we had bad ants, luckily some bug spray we brought took care of them.
*Tip - Don't leave any food in your room. If you do room service leave it outside or return it, don't leave it in your room.
Being far from everything was a positive as we were away from the commotion of being near the beach or other resorts and walked off all the food and drinks we had. Luckily our friends were in the building next to us. Interestingly enough we learned some of the staff lived in the rooms above us. Going to the resort this time of year was not very crowded and very few kids were around.
Our days mainly consisted of breakfast, lounging on the beach in the morning, drinking and kayaking or sailing. Weather was moderately warm in low 80's with clouds and breeze. Ideal island weather. I will warn you they have some annoying birds flying around. They don't bother you except for at the Market Cafe where they scavenge for food. When we first arrived they had nets up to keep them out, but once they had a photo shoot they took them down.
The only other negative was the photo shoots they would hold throughout the week we were there. It was bad enough when they closed off sections of the beach or kept people confined in a certain area for breakfast. With a sunrise of 6 a.m. they could have gotten it out of the way earlier. Other than that we had a wonderful time celebrating our anniversary with close friends.
Get out of your comfort zone, Unwind, relax and have a cerveza. You are now on island time, not rush around U.S. time. Sabor made us feel welcome and safe. We were well fed with great cuisine from El Patio and poured some excellent drinks from the swim up bar. If there is something you need, only ask and they will do their best to accommodate. I'll make the comment now; not really sure what everyone else is complaining about. We have beach, sun and endless drinks. What more could you want.
