Our award-winning hotel services are matched by our environmentally friendly green initiatives:
- Rainforest Alliance Certified™: We received this due to our commitment to reducing impact of its activities on the planet and local communities.
- Distintivo“H” Program: This recognizes our hygienic food handling and high quality of food, including the correct separation of waste so water is not polluted, the use of grease traps, testing of chemical oxygen demand and recycling of used oil.
- Sea Turtle Conservation Program: During specific months of the year, sea turtles, an endangered or threatened species, come onto our beaches to lay their eggs. During these months, our resort guests work with our staff to help preserve, protect and release these endangered hatchlings into the sea.
- Monthly Beach Cleanups: Sunscape Dorado Pacifico Ixtapa participates in a monthly cleanup of El Palmar Beach, the pride of the hotel and residents of Ixtapa Zihuatanejo. Because of this commitment to conservation and sustainable development, the beach has been certified as a Clean Beach.
To stimulate job creation, Sunscape Dorado Pacifico Ixtapa regularly purchases coffee, honey and other foods from the local community. We also allow local artisans to exhibit and sell their handcrafts directly to our employees and guests. Our staff members are educated about the products and their cultural significance so they can share that information with guests.
