Anniversary

The resort over exceed our expectations!!! Couple of things that are not listed and were not that big of a deal to us.. They close 2 of the 4 restaurants every night, sanctuary town is amazing but is open to the public which means kids are aloud in sanctuary town. Our butler in the castle was J.T and he made our stay very relaxing driving us back and fourth from the castle to the pool or restaurants. Seaweed was bad but the resort had workers out there everyday cleaning up the beach which made it a lot better. Everyone in the resort treated us awesome and we will be going back again.

Great Value, overall great stay

The resort is beautiful. Very nice rooms for the price. We stayed in an ocean view suite (ocean view was minimal). Pools were warm (almost like bath water) but enjoyable anyhow. Beach was beautiful, water was refreshing. The staff are very friendly and amazing. We had a mildew smell in the first room we checked into and they had us in a new room within an hour. The ONE thing we were a little put off by was that the website clearly says that gratuity is included, however, tips were pushed everywhere we went. Every restaurant we went to would hand you a bill at the end of your meal with prices for everything you ordered and a $0 charge but a tip line. Obviously you are being served and service should be tipped but with what you pay to go to all inclusive resorts I would think they SHOULD be getting paid pretty well. If you didn't tip, you were treated differently. Drinks were different (meaning little to no alcohol in them.) I don't have a problem tipping anyone with great service, however, when you are clearly stating that it is included you are sending the wrong message. We felt a lot of pressure for tips. The website should say "tips are not included with regards to your service at restaurants, bars, room service and house keeping." Something to make you aware to always have cash, even at the pool bar believe it or not. Other than the tip thing, this resort was amazing. The entertainment staff were on point. Lots of fun times. We would definitely go back but we would be more prepared this time around.

Excellent Experience

The resort was excellent! Nice cool rooms, extremely comfortable beds, clean, stylish, wonderful food, and great service. Getting there was one of the easiest processes I have ever experienced traveling. Leaving and getting to the airport the recommended 3 hours early was a hot and exhausting process though..NO AC IN AIRPORT....the only bad part of the trip. The resort food was really good, ranging from above average to excellent depending on the restaurant and dish. They were more than happy to get you what you wanted and went out of the way to make it right. Especially enjoyed Fusion and the Italian restaurant. The night life was a little lacking but just fine for me. This is not one of those rip roaring resorts that parties non stop....which I liked and needed. It was a nice balance of relaxing and fun. Would definitely go again!

What's to Love

The Sanctuary Spa is fabulous and features 20,000 sq ft of full-service relaxation, including amenities and services such as hydrotherapy and a state-of-the-art fitness center.

 

What We'd Change

This resort does have a beach, but it's recommended that you take the easy three-minute walk to nearby Juanillo Beach, where the surf is a bit tamer. That just means no one blocks the ocean views from your room!

 

Why You Should Go

This extraordinarily luxurious Cap Cana resort rests on a plot of land twice the size of Manhattan and is replete with ivory beaches, iridescent indigo surf and awe-inspiring cliff faces.

Playa Juanillo, Cap Cana

Hotel Description

Sanctuary Cap Cana: Indulge in Immense Luxury, Intense Relaxation

Escape to a pristine getaway twice the size of Manhattan, where alabaster-white sands, emerald forests, expansive cliff faces and a rolling blue-green surf surround the all inclusive Sanctuary Cap Cana. Featuring 176 suites and villas, this luxury resort is also home to Sanctuary Spa, a Punta Cana gem that features a 20,000-sq-ft facility complete with nine treatment rooms, a relaxation garden, a Pilates studio and a thermal hydrotherapy circuit.

Pleasantly perched right on a beachfront, the Sanctuary at Punta Cana is just a three-minute walk to popular Juanillo Beach, where guests enjoy palm-tree lined sands with an assortment of sun loungers and the resort's water sports center. With five swimming pools, including one saltwater pool, and the Freshco swim-up bar, guests can also find plenty of water-laden luxury without setting foot on the sand. Enjoy plush towels and complimentary loungers poolside with plenty of shady umbrellas to indulge in as little or as much Caribbean sunshine as you desire.

The Blue Marlin, a seafood restaurant resting on stilts over the sea, offers fresh seafood indoors or al fresco, with one-in-a-million views. If you're interested in pushing your taste buds east, try Pan-Asian fare courtesy of Wok, or indulge in Italian classics at Capriccio. Sigh your contented sighs, but don't turn in just yet! The Sanctuary Cap Cana offers live nightly entertainment, theme and cocktail parties and consistent programming for children and families. The night is as young as you make it with five bars, including a live piano bar.

Guests at the resort can hoof about the countryside on horseback, paint the resort red with paintball, charge the cliff-tops on complimentary mountain bikes or shake their money-makers at a dance lesson or two. And if the day goes long, or the night stretches into the day, it would be a shame not to capitalize on 24-hr room service. Have a delicious snack delivered right to your Monarch Ocean Front Villa, and set up a late night feeding frenzy on your terrace. When your own private garden looks out over the moon-kissed Caribbean, it's easy to see why sleep can wait a bit.
