Very welcoming by Carlos. Lovley house and room, nice and cozy. Near down town, just 5-10 minutes walk. Great breakfast and afternoon 'Happy hour' by the pool/jacuzzi. Can highly recommend it! Thanks from Ann-Helene & Conny from Sweden

excellent, all was very nice and easy, arrival, check in, check out, that's exactly what I was looking for in staying in Scantuary, comfort and relax. I can say I was impressed car parking was not included, I guess I should have asked before, the rate was higher than $100 for a week, the service was great though and the...

Very good location on hotel. Most of staff very friendly special people in the frontdesk. The service with the breakfast was poor suggestion one person could be at the breakfast when is open tp serve the people at the time instead of going and looking for people to help you.staff in kitchen was not helpful at all

Thank you for visiting us at Sanctuary. While I offer my apologies for any dissatisfaction with the continental breakfast, it is only a small part of an array of services and amenities provided to Sanctuary guests. The economically-priced $15.00 Daily Resort Fee, which covers 2 people, also includes: • Beach Club lounge chairs and towels • Convenient nearby Pool and...

Comfortable, nice spacious rooms and usually good value compare with other hotels in the area. Staff is very attentive and pleasant. Complimentary breakfast only available for 2 and a half hours, making it very difficult to have it.

The hotel is in need of a lot of updates--rooms better linens --lighting some up dates --dingy and dark --air conditioner thermostat locked in at 77 degrees--could not change it --room had a musty smell --breakfast was minimal--not with the effect--when I booked the reservation I had the impression there was a rooftop pool --not so on another hotel roof...

We arrived late in the evening and the manager was so helpful. She was back again the next morning- I think she lives there! The rooms were nice, though our room had an unpleasant mildew odor (the other room in our group did not). The beach was much nicer than the public beaches. And if you get a chance, have...

We could not stay in this hotel due to heavy mould contamination. We had to change hotel. The valet parking recommended by the hotel charged us USD 210 for 4 hours of parking(no refund). The only positive thing was that they sent us to a new hotel after hours of discussion. Extra costs USD 300.

Thank you for all the valuable time you and your family have given to leave reviews on your very short visit to Sanctuary. I cannot convey how sorry I am your introduction to South Beach was not smooth and uneventful, but if you return you may be sure your experience will be an entirely different one.

Terrible place! Not clean, not good lighting, very dirty, not worth it. better pay a little extra and stay somewhere else and enjoy the stay in Miami. My friends were supposed to stay here and after my experience they had to cancel it and stay at a different hotel closer to Espanola.
