I spent 8 days at the Sanctuary Resort and felt like I was in heaven. The resort itself is amazing and the staff make you feel like royalty. The weather could not have been better.
The guys at the pool, Junior and Eddy were the best! They made sure everyone was waited on quickly and everything was done correctly. I basically lived at the pool. Teddy Bear also made the trip more fun with the pool side activities! I have no complaints about the staff.
The staff is on "Dominican" time however so expect to wait a long time for room service and mostly everything for that matter.
The reason I can't give 5 stars is the food...it leaves much to be desired. I actually found the best food was available through room service.
Best advice is to leave the resort for dinner and go to Aqua Marina. They will call you a charter bus for only $2 per person. The food and atmosphere there are amazing. It is pricey but worth it.
All in all, I would definitely return to the Sanctuary again.
