My wife and I just got back from our wedding that we had at Sanctuary. What a perfect experience. Our butler Jesús was awesome! From getting the bridal gown and suit pressed and returned a few hours prior to the service, to taking care of the bride's/ groom's parents, Jesús took care of us! As for the wedding, Pamela the wedding coordinator made sure everything went according to plan. She was very helpful and professional, and helped us change venues to avoid a torrential downpour. Everyone we dealt with at Sanctuary was just great!

This resort was amazing. The entertainment team was excellent! The rooms are large and the view from our room was breathtaking. This is our second trip here and it was just as good if not better than the first. The drinks were good and the service was great! Can't wait to come back!

Had a great 8 day stay at sanctuary! We booked the castle oceanfront junior suite and requested a first floor room. Upon arrival we had a second floor room. We mentioned this to our butler Miguel and he had us in a new room the next night. We also had a few issues with the first room we were placed in, but all issues were resolved quickly. The second room they placed us in on the first floor was beyond my expectations and had an amazing view! Our butler Miguel was extremely attentive and checked on us daily. He responded to all messages with in minutes. He was amazing!! Happy boy saved out chairs everyday and kept us entertained. Gasolina was there for two of the days and saved us a great seat for our last day. The entertainment crew was phenomenal, especially pinky, the magic, black diamond, Mr. spicy, and Coca Cola lite Brenda, esteban, Fernando, andres, Anselmo kept our drinks filled and took great care of us. Special mention to Brenda for making me espresso martinis all week. Brenda- please come to my house and make me one soon! All in all it was a great stay and we enjoyed every minute. Not one staff member was rude or not helpful. I would recommend this resort to anyone and would return

Perfect little spot in the world to unwind. The resort is beautiful and well maintained and we felt very safe, secluded and secure. The incredible staff are very friendly and cared very much about our safety and well being. Our room was cleaned daily by our excellent Housekeeping staff Nancy and Diana! We did not use a butler service but honestly did not need one. We took advantage of a spa special and felt very well taken care of and pampered. The beach is small which is fine, and the swimming area itself was ok, more seaweed and rockier than we prefer but it was fine, we spent most of our time at the main pool where the staff there took very good care of us in or out of the pool. This was a beautiful location and the capacity was small while we were there which made us feel extra well taken care of. The dining was fine, nothing I would really rave about. They had plenty of selections it just didn't wow us, but we had plenty of options and the service was fantastic.

Room Tip: Beachfront Junior suites have excellent location, some nights were a little to close to the action.
