We had a nice stay at Sanctuary. The bar staff was very nice, and the rest were nice but not noticeably outstanding. They use email and text very often to communicate...a little too often for me but better too much than not enough. I would stay here again but it's good to know that there is no hotel parking. We...

Staff super friendly. Dated. Cleanliness an issue. Use of Gale pool next store was a bonus. If you can... Stay there. Worth the extra money. Considering what we paid it was good value and centrally located to shopping and restaurants.

Although the Sanctuary South Beach is not on the beach, it is perfectly located to walk everywhere. Lincoln is a block away, as is the beach. Ocean Drive and its scene is a few blocks away, so one can enjoy the frenzy and enormous drinks, but escape to the quiet atmosphere of the Sanctuary SoBe. The room was spacious and... More

We are so happy that you found our warm and friendly boutique hotel so great to write about it. No, we are not right on the beach but two blocks away isn't too bad. But that just puts us even closer to all the shopping and entertainment on famous Lincoln Road. We look forward to seeing you soon so that... More

While doing this survey, I just noticed they have a sister hotel Gale South Beach and a electric car service I was not told about these other amenities, I would have loved to utilize them... But any way it tajes them much to long to refund your security deposit.
