This is our second visit, we were here 2 years ago. A great place to come and chill out and away from the hustle and bustle of the Surfers. The hotel hasn't changed much, the staff are still amazing, friendly, courteous and yet professional and great customer service skills. From the moment we were greeted from the getting out of...

I came here to get some time to myself and allow for thought, relaxation and contemplation. It's exactly the right place for that. Although it was at full capacity, the whole place is expansive enough that you can get away on your own if you want to. There's plenty of garden areas, walking, poolside and indoor areas to sit.

I'm lucky to only live one hour away from Paradise. From the moment you drive in to Sanctuary Cove you experience the most beautiful resort with amazing and attentive Staff. The lagoon is unbelievable and you definitely feel like you are on your own amazing island. Cannot recommend my home away from home highly enough !

I have stayed here once before when visiting the boat show. On this occasion I have only one gripe and that is the my room floor had not been vacuumed and was dirty and there was hair on the wall of my shower. I have stayed at hotels all over the world and this is definitely something you would not... More

Not much seafood variety and the hot meals were not exciting. The desserts were average and nothing extraordinary. The favourable item was the wine buffet which was included in the price. Limited service staff reduced the quality for the service having to wait longer times.

Great venue for holidays and conference facility, wonderful grounds and close to golf courses. Staff very helpful and rooms are quite large being an older style resort. Conference rooms are large and can adapt to any size meeting.

Sanctuary Cove is a immaculately maintained resort. It's a typical golfing resort but the hotel has a huge pool and lagoon pool to relax around. The grounds are manicured and the staff unbelievably friendly and helpful. The club room is clean and well stocked by Chantal who really goes the extra mile. We only ate breakfast in the club room...

Very luxurious and pictureque stay. If you are a IHG member with points, this is a very reasonable option for points redemption. Resort is relatively large, so much so that they have a buggy to drive you to your block if it is far away from the lobby. Unique experience is that it has its own artificial beach, complete with...
