We stayed at "The Sanctuary" for 3 nights. The service to accommodate us was outstanding and we loved the resort. It has a spectacular views of the mountains and you can easily get around the area. We had a very nice man show us to our casita and the resort gifted us with a bottle of wine, champagne and chocolate... More

The people who work there are wonderful and super friendly! Great hospitality. Since its between a dessert, you may have to get used to the environment a bit. Not suitable for outdoor activities unless you are into hiking and roaming in the sun. The restaurant is quite fancy and a little pricey. But it is awesome for a date. The... More

Beautiful views, amazing food, and outstanding service! We laid at the pool and the service was very attentive. They were always asking if we needed anything. The restaurant has absolutely amazing food as well. Short Ribs and Fillet were both to die for. We will be back for sure!

I was here for work, with a little extra downtime. The 3-room suite was beautiful, with 2 private deck areas, including a bathtub with epsom salts available outside. I had to conduct a webinar while I was there but forgot my headphones, but the concierge dug up a pair from reservations to loan me. The next day started with thunderstorms... More

We flew out for the weekend for some rest and relaxation and were very pleased with the location, our accommodations and the restaurant. The workout facilities and pool were great too. We had an excellent dinner with great live music in the bar.

We wanted an exceptional experience for a 20th Aniversary and this was the right place. Unique and beautiful setting on the side of a mountain. The "rooms" were indeed suites, sparcely scattered on the steep cliff and accessed by golf carts - always on call to take you where you want to go. Rooms are wonderfully spacious and well appointed.... More
