we were looking for elegance and privacy.. . very happy with resort will return. have been to the punta cana area 8 times and stayed at all different resorts. this one is the best.

Everything was excellent! Don’t have any complains about it.

The resort was clean & pretty. The staff was nice & accommodating. The only issue I had was our room bathroom stunk. We had to keep the door closed most of the time. Also for breakfast, the only meat choices are pork I don't eat it so that was disappointing. Overall its a wonderful resort if you're looking to relax & not a party-type vibe.

The property is incredible. It’s big and the rooms are individually decorated. The place is definitely a Sanctuary.

The facilities, pool, the staff were all fantastic. Super Jery, Fido and Juan made our trip incredibly memorable.

Great definitely will return

Every person was so kind and accommodating!

This is the best resort i have been to yet, the staff goes above and beyond, so friendly very polite, it was very clean

Such an amazing resort with amazing staff and food!

Hotel looks great on the pictures, even when you there it looks beautiful, till you start noticing all shorts cuts in quality they have. We have to use Dehumidifiers for almost 24/7 other way everything was wet (maybe it just our room, but I paid full asked price like everyone else). Most memorable from this hotel will be Dehumidifier noise. Stuff is ok, some people trying above and beyond, but some is just don't try at all. Overall it is good hotel, most disappointing is price. I night stay is more expensive then 1 stuff member 1-2 month salary. Food at restaurants was ok, except ribeye steak, it was 1 out of 10. Probably worst steake I ever eat. Also breakfast buffet was awful, by the end of our stay we eat only fruits there and fresh cooked eggs. I don't know how, but they manage to spoil even bacon. During coronovirus time there is nothing to do, 1 bar in the evening is working and that's it. Barman at that bar don't really like to talk, so only gods know which cocktails are available. I have to Google Caribbean cocktails and ask them what they can make. It wasn't a pleasant place to be for some reason, even so interior design is very beautiful. I liked only 1 bartender at Italian restaurant, I believe his name is Jesus, he was very polite and truly like his job. But the biggest disappointment is the beach, water all 10 day was brown and right side of the beach has some sharp rocks in the water and you can't see it, I have crawl back when run in to water. 3.5 out of 5.

The property is immaculate and The food was great, even though not all restaurants are currently open. The service can be slow.

Our stay at Sanctuary was amazing in every way possible! The grounds were beautiful, well maintained, and cleaned frequently. Our room was spacious and beautifully accompanied by our own private pool. Upon arrival Miguel (our personal butler) helped us with everything we needed. He was always available to make our experience even more amazing! He even helped my boyfriend set up an in room birthday surprise and dinner at the beach for me! We felt very safe at this resort in regards to COVID. Things were frequently being sanitized, all crew was wearing masks ALWAYS, and there were not too many people at all so we could easily social distance at the pool, beach, and restaurants. Our favorite restaurant we tried was the steakhouse on the property. Kind of crazy to believe the food there was included in our all inclusive package because it was AMAZING and high quality. They brought us out a selection of amazing steak enough for 5 people between just the two of us we were stuffed. I also wanted to mention the spa located in the castle where we stayed. Me and my boyfriend got a couples massage that was amazing. The girls did an amazing job. After we got to use the spa facilities including this outdoor pool/spa combo. Again there was no one else around so even this felt private and was excellent. If you're looking for a resort to travel to in Punta Cana, I highly reccomend this one.

When we arrived we asked for an upgrade to villa. They told us it’s plus 500 USD a night. We were staying there for 10 nights. We didn’t do it. Later on we met a couple who did upgrade for 1500 USD for 8 nights to villa. The room they gave us: TV was not working properly. For you to close entrance door you had to unlock it and than lock it. It was broken. So they will try and give you the worst room. Check it out first and then go in. Bar at the pool closes at 6PM. Which we found very weird. They only have Stakehouse open daily. Which is not the best place to eat. At the buffet you have to beg to put more food on The plate. Best place they have is blue Marlin. Servers are great. Also huge thing that I did not like is that nobody walks around with drinks or takes orders. You have to go and grab it. So for me it’s not 5 star all inclusive hotel. Maybe 4!
