The Sanctuary Cap Cana is the place to go to do nothing. We stayed in the Oceanfront Villa, and it was amazing! Very spacious, and footsteps from the peach-sand beach. The villa has a large living area, bathroom, walk-in closet and bedroom. Both the bedroom and living have doors that open out to your private deck (part shaded and part... More

The hotel was very pretty and staff were great! Beach is pretty but small with lots of seaweed! Food is average (all inclusive) could have a few more choices! Love bar serves the best drinks thanks to rosa and bernardo. No nightlife other than planned theme things hotel did (movie night, bingo, beach party) etc. Golf at punta espada is... More

I have a busy lifestyle and I was looking for a hotel in Dominican republic, and this was perfect for relax and location. It is located in Cap Cana, very exclusive and high quality hotel. It's only 10 mins far away from the airport but you have to take a taxi cab ($60 USD round trip from airport) It's not... More

This first was our first to Punta Cana. My husband and I needed a vacation and I'm glad we chose Santuary Cap Cana for our introduction to resort life in Punta Cana. We opted for the all-included resort treatment and it was worth it. I'll explain later, but first to the room accommodations. We had a junior suite and it... More

Beautiful hotel, great decoration, staff is marvelous , and the room is very comfortable but the details are sub par, food selection and variety are really bad compared with the rest of hotels in the area, also it will be appreciated if they coordinate the restaurants to have something available at all times, which is not happening at the moment....

This resort was beyond expectation. The staff provided excellent service and they were very polite and courteous. It was very relaxing, offering quiet areas and other areas where you could interact with the other guests. There was much to explore and we did not see it all. I would definitely recommend the resort if you're looking to get away from... More

My husband and I stayed at the resort for our 10 year anniversary in May 2014. The variety of restaurants was great. The nightly activities were also very enjoyable. Johanna Bernardo in the Love Bar became our best friend! Very kind and friendly. The only cons were that we booked through Expedia and when we got there, they did not... More

My boyfriend and I just returned from our trip to Sanctuary Cap Cana Resort. We cannot say enough about this resort and the amazing time we had. It truly is it's own paradise and we were blown away the moment we arrived. We have never been out of the country or to a resort of any kind, so this was... More

My girlfriend and I returned from this trip on July 6 after spending 4 nights at the Sanctuary. I wanted to take her there for her birthday. Although my standards are somewhat high, she is very picky. And she LOVED it! We didn't even have one of the better rooms. We stayed in an apartment style room and wow the... More
