My husband and I stayed at the Sanctuary for 3 nights at the beginning of October in a Spa Casita King Room. We have stayed here twice before so knew what to expect. However these rooms might not be to everyone's taste as they are very modern with painted concrete floors. We did find the room a bit dark but perhaps that was because we had just come from the Four Seasons at Troon which was wonderfully light. Nice bathroom with a great shower and lovely toiletries. I do not like the fact that the wardrobe area is in the bathroom behind a curtain which I think is a little poor for a 5 star property. Also the curtain that divides the bedroom from the bathroom covers the air conditioning vent when pulled across. The bed is low but very comfortable just beware the sharp edges of the base - we walked into them several times. The infinity pool is lovely and the hotel have rafts and noodles for using here. I also like the no cell phone policy although this was not always observed. Service at the pool was attentive without being intrusive. We ate breakfast in the hotel which was always good - I would particularly recommend the waffle with macademia nuts and mascarpone - and if you eat outside or get one of the booths by the window the view across Paradise Valley is wonderful. We also ate in Elements the first evening of our stay but found it a little disappointing. My duck was really nice but my husband's pork chop was undercooked, and we felt there was a poor choice of sweets. The other downside of the meal was that the restaurant was very cold - the a/c was either very powerful or turned up too high. I think someone must have complained as it seemed to get turned down after a while. The restaurant staff both in the evening and at breakfast were very good. The hotel supply you with a torch in your room which is a good touch as the grounds are very dark at night. The grounds of the hotel contain a lot of trees and bushes and I think this may have been a contributory factor to the fact that I got badly bitten by insects over the three days that we were there plus we noticed that housekeeping left the room doors open while they were cleaning the rooms which may not have helped. Some of this may sound a bit negative but overall it is a very nice place with friendly and helpful staff.
