My husband and I stayed 5 nights here. The place was beautiful, we wanted privacy and that's what we got. The only thing I would change if we came here again is to get a suite with a balcony. When we arrived we had 2 bottles of complementary wine, beer, fruit, cereal, strawberries cheese etc... even port! They took care... More

We stayed here for two nights during a four night stay in the bay. I thought the accommodation was immaculate and I absolutely loved the view from the moulin rouge suite. Karen was a fantastic host and it was a lovely touch to have a welcome basket for us on our arrival. I would highly recommend Sanctuary Palms. Clare&Mike Price.

Whilst the bedroom and ensuite were superbly presented the living area was pokey and at the end of a corridor which was slightly chlostrophobic . The waterfall was... More

The living/dining/kitchen area is spacious and beautifully appointed. Kitchen with everything. Extras included telescope, CDs, dishwasher, chess set, books. The bedding sumptuous. The bathroom is absolutely spectacular. Big double spa, lots of candles, classic tiling... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon and couldn't have asked for anything better!! We were in the penthouse, with it's huge private deck with amazing views over the bay. Very quiet location yet only 5mins walk to town and 7-8mins walk to the wharf (tourist boats etc...) Everything in the apartment was modern and well looked after, and the manager... More
