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.

Amazing place. We were lucky with only 10% capacity with COVID so felt like we had the place to ourselves. Our butler Emelio was the absolute man! Happy boy, Cairo, Gilbert, Juan, and Super Yery were by far my favorite employees. Franklin was my favorite cook. They never missed a beat and were always on top of request.

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!

My wife and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary here last week and we are so happy we booked with Sanctuary Cap Cana. First off, the resort architecture, grounds, and setting are stunning. It is just beautiful and well maintained everywhere you look. You feel like you are staying in an upscale, quaint village due to the variety of different buildings...you don’t feel like you are staying at a standard hotel/resort. The pools are amazing, perfect temperatures and clean. The beach is small but the beach lounge area is intimate and beautiful. We loved the food- all the restaurants were wonderful. The hotel staff were all AMAZING! Juan, Happy Boy, Miguel the fitness trainer, Jacobo our waiter... I could go on. The circus performance and the Dominican show were very good, as was the nightly music performances with cello, saxophone, etc. Everyone was very pleasant and worked tirelessly to make our experience unforgettable. We stayed for 8 nights, and we would definitely return. We highly recommend this for a romantic couples retreat! We were hesitant to book excursions because the resort was so nice and we didn’t want to leave!

Had a relaxing vacation. Hotel was nice and the staff was great. Right now there’s still not a lot of people so it was nice to be in a safe environment. Carlos at the swim up bar was awesome, after my first order drinks were ready every time. Happy at the pool was great with setting up the chairs and making sure we were taken care of. Location is good, isolated and staff was great.
