Travellers' Choice
Its inspired design combines the charm of a Spanish colonial village with the laid-back sensuality of the Caribbean and the stylish sophistication of streamlined, modern design accents. Bougainvillea-lined pathways lead guests through the resort grounds to 176 expansive, private suites housed in replicas of a tower, colonial buildings and fortress. Within the resort are 5 exceptional restaurants, 5 bars, an elegant casino, a half-mile private beach with sugar-white sand, and meeting space for up to 500 guests, while just minutes away lie all the world-class recreational appeals of Cap Cana.

This was our second time here in 3 months and just like the last time we extended our trip. We absolutely love everything about this place, from the staff (Adela - lobby bar; Happy Boy - pool concierge; Enolky - front desk castle; Carlos - main pool bar; Eddie - lobby love bar; Jauna - main pool bar back; Juan - entertainment; and Miguel (gym instructor and pool aerobics)) to the amazing food, to the beautifully manicured grounds. We are already planning to visit again in March. Sanctuary town is still not open but the food on the resort is some of the best at any all inclusive we’ve ever stayed at before. If you do eat lunch, the Blue Marlin is amazing and be sure to get the sancocho and the Dominican fried fish. The buffet for lunches and dinners - so many choices and great top tier preparation. When eating at the Steak House, be sure to get the platter for two. A little bit of a warning, try not to eat many appetizers before - it is a lot of food. If you want to walk on the beach, totally go to Juanillo Beach, just off of the castle side of the resort, it is a beautiful very long clean stretch of beach. The Sanctuary is a complete five star experience.

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!

We visited Sanctuary Cap Cana for our 20th anniversary in December 2020. What a fantastic experience! From champagne in the room to a sign on the door wishing us a happy anniversary, our initial experience was second-to-none. Although COVID impact the availability of some of the amenities, the resort and staff followed safety protocols and helped ensure a safe stay. The food was wonderful, the grounds were beautifully maintained, and our room was very comfortable. But the staff put this resort over the top. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. We have visited a number of resorts in the Caribbean, but this one beats them all. We will be back!

Me and my fiancé came here Jan 2021 for our anniversary. It was a perfect place for a getaway and stress relieving atmosphere. Definitely a laid back vibe which we enjoyed. We spent our days relaxing in the pool or on the beach with a good drink in our hands! (Thanks, Carlos!) The activities were fun, although we wished there were more during the day. Food was overall very good. The Italian restaurant was THE BEST! We looked forward to the shows they planned every night, they were super entertaining. We took pictures by Alex on the resort and they turned out amazing. What we love most about Sanctuary was the staff; Fido always kept us smiling and was easy to find whenever we needed something Gasolina & Chocolate were super entertaining and kept the party goin! Johnathan the server was great and very attentive Super Yery greeted us every morning at breakfast with a mimosa and a huge smile, our favorite server by far! Carlos at the pool bar is the best! Super good drinks and handed us a water when we needed it Jesus the bartender made some of the best tasting shots we’ve had! We loved this place so much we even looked into getting married here, so we will definitely be back for our wedding! ❤️ Love this place and will recommend to all our family and friends Love, “John Cena” and “Cena Wife”
