I've been to DR plenty of times. By far the nicest hotel in DR i have stayed at. I've stayed at the Reserve, Iberostar, etc. I have yet to go to Iberostar Grand but Sanctuary was beautiful. The positives: 10 minutes from the airport, 5 minutes from the top golf course in the carribean (its amazing you have to go), safe and secure area in Cap Cana (the ritziest area in DR). The room i had was. I stayed in a suite, the first time i had 2 levels and my own pool in my room. The villas are amazing as well.
Negatives: New management just came in so you'll expect the service to lag a bit as they work out the kinks but i expect that to improve. The water at the beach is a bit cloudy from the sand that gets drawn up. I've been to nicer beaches in DR. The pools were very nice. Gym was nice as well. Its a large resort. Next door is a public beach wich "public" in cap cana means people with money will be there so its not scary.
Would i go back? Sure. Its a very pretty resort. I just prefer others beachs that i've seen on the island. If you want, take an excursion through the hotel.
