This was by far one of the best vacation experiences we’ve had in our entire lives! We simply loved every single moment about this trip. Let me start by saying the resort is gorgeous, yes, the suite was absolutely amazeballs - we had the oceanfront castle suite - but none of that would even matter without the PEOPLE. The employees at the Sanctuary resort are super humans, I’m convinced they have secured a ticket straight to Heaven already, they are all such amazing individuals and they single handedly made this vacation one to remember forever. As soon as we got to the Castle we were greeted by Laury, OMG!! Words can’t describe how quickly we fell in love with this girl, one of the brightest and most genuine people we’ve ever met, Laury you know you have a homie in Miami forever! Thank you for being such a kind soul and being so ridiculously attentive with us. Then we met Miguel (much better than Sebastian! Lol - internal joke), one of the most humble souls in the entire world, always with such a serene attitude, always with a bright smile, saying hi to the two of them became our ritual and our mood setter every morning, Miguel helped us with absolutely everything we needed, no matter how silly the request was, he found a way to solve it and deliver for us, any time, any where he is simply the best! Ancelmo made the best passion fruit mojitos ever and got me totally addicted while he introduced my husband, who is a total rum lover, to his new favorite friend Barcelo Imperial, in matter of a day, most bartenders knew this was his favorite drink and would save him a bottle just for him, you just don’t see this customer service anywhere else, at least not in the states. It’s the type of customer service done for love and vocation not because of a paycheck, and although it’s fantastic to be pampered like this, it’s also heartbreaking to see that other people just whines and disrespects them… so please, be kind, they choose everyday to be the best version of themselves for you, so the least you can do is not be a freaking Karen! On the subject of food, all the restaurants were great, food is quite delicious, and there is something for every taste. After our very own romantic dinner at the beach, which I 100% recommend!! Our favorite one was definitely the sushi place in sanctuary town, the best sushi we’ve ever had! (I recommend the Nigiri fusion section, you are in for a treat) our Chef was amazing to us and Alexis was such a sweetheart! To all our waiters and hostesses, we LOVE you!!! Thank you thank you for being so attentive, I don't know how you can possibly remember all the things you did, from how I liked my coffee, to the extra lemons I liked, from the fruit juices, I mean, it was every little detail! Special shout out to Ana Madeline, I’ve never seen someone so expressively smile with her eyes, I never saw your actual smile (thank you Covid) but OMG what a beautiful and bright soul, everytime we met you at a restaurant our meal was a lot sweeter! We adore you! Saldana (Manuel), first and foremost the most gorgeous eyelashes in Dominican Republic, hands down (my husband agrees), you were our first waiter and you set the bar quite high for everyone else! I want you to know you stole our hearts and I don’t say this only because you got me drunk with so many cocktail choices at the Wok! Lol Thank you for such excellent service. Francisco must be the most easy going and joyful person I’ve met, he treated us like nothing less than royalty and spoiled me like a toddler. We can’t take you enough and as I told you before we left, a part of our hearts stayed with you. Geomar you made our romantic night so special, you made us fall in love again!! Also I had too much champagne lol! Thank you! To Randy, my one and only barista, I don’t know what sorcery you put in my coffee but you’ve ruined coffee for me forever! To Yerry and Cairo, our crazy musical duo at the buffet, we loved your energy and your rhythm thank you! Next time I’ll make you go viral ;). In terms of things to do and entertainment, everything was great, everyday there were activities in the pool and there were all sorts of events in the evening to kill the night at the Pub! We had the opportunity to also visit Scape Cana Park which was a ton of fun. To our entertainment team, I am so incredibly impressed by your hard work and how much love you put on what you do, thanks to you, my husband, a long with a bunch of strangers from so different places in the world collided every day to dance bachata, salsa and zumba in front of the entire resort, under the a perfectly sunny sky that made our skin melt a little every time (great for burning calories lol), you are a center of energy, and you truly draw people with your spirit, thank you thank you for making us laugh so hard and shake our booties until God knows what time at night. To my favorite crew ever! Spicy your goofiness made my day every day, thank you for the endless laughs. Pinky the tiniest but spiciest! You are pure fire my friend!! I was jealous that I could not learn those booty moves on the floor, that's next level stuff lol! Mr Magic and Fido who never took no for an answer and pulled us all to the dance floor at the club or at the pool to do all sorts of foolishness lol, thank you for a great time! Gasolina thank you thank you for always finding us the best spot at the pool you are made out of gold! Wakey Wakey, DJ Happy Boy, Black Diamond you guys are all fantastic and together you are just DA BOMB! You really made us feel like teenagers all over again trying to party as late as we could every night and dancing as if no one was watching! THANK YOU! And last but not least, the spa. If there was one part of the trip I would call good but not great, was the spa, just by comparing the prices to the quality of the offering, the prices are comparable to the standard hotel in Miami, yet the equipment and installations don’t necessarily match that, at least not in functionality, for instance, they didn’t have heated beds, or a hooded hair dryer at the salon, just little details that cheapen the experience. Nevertheless, it was the people that did it once again and made our visit one of a kind. I hate that I forgot to take their names to give them their deserved shout out but I was too relaxed to even think at the moment. They took such great care of us! We loved the pampering and left renewed, thank you also for being so patient with my puffy afro hairdo lol!

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!

We absolutely adored our experience at Sanctuary; we owe it all to the incredible staff. Not to mention it has breathtaking views. Thank you to every staff member for welcoming us and bringing us into their beautiful country and home. A special thank you to the entertainment staff. Cappucino, Coca Cola Light, Pinky, Wakey-Wakey, Sexy Belly, Black Diamond, and the head of the entertainment staff, Mickey. These were the entertainment staff we had the opportunity to spend time with and grow close to. These incredible humans made our stay unforgettable. Each of these people go out of their way to make each guest feel comfortable and have the best time possible. Wow, I truly cannot say enough about each of these workers. The humor, care, work ethic, etc. is unmatched to anything I have ever seen. THANK YOU ENTERTAINMENT STAFF-- especially all of those lovely people I listed above. I would 100% visit Sanctuary again. Thank you to the lovely restaurant staff at every location. Thank you to the amazing bartending staff-- especially Miss Ruby. We love you! This review is long overdue! Thank you Sanctuary! Nothing but good things to express. Hope everyone is well.

Capriccio was one of our favorite dining experience of our week. From the menu selections, portion sizes, and intimate atmosphere it was an amazing dinner option as a honey moon couple. The hostess was quick to accommodate us when we were accidentally 2 hours early for our reservation. Felix and Levi are extremely attentive, hospitable, and made our dinner extra special. This will be one of the restaurants we visit many times during our stay!

I had the most amazing stay in the terrace tower suite. The service is absolutely outstanding at this resort. Our butler Frank fulfilled our every want and need. The server Yocledy was super attentive, friendly and remembered us whenever we saw her!
