We had an amazing time at Sanctuary. Our wait staff were always friendly and attentive, especially Ginette! Happy Boy was so helpful on the beach and at the pool, arranging towels perfectly. Narciso Green was our butler. He was attentive, remembered what we liked to drink, scheduled our dinners expertly and arranged spa days and excursions that were unforgettable. Wonderful resort all around - clean, great pools, beautiful beach and good food and drinks. We will be back!

Hotel's Favourite
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 enjoyed our time at Secreta Royal Beach so much. The hotel was lovely and well kept. The staff was amazing. So very friendly and attentive. Tokyo at the pool was one of our most favorite people. He was knowledgeable about the Dominican and also very attentive. What a guy!

We have stayed in many resorts worldwide and in Caribbean we lived in Jamaica as well. The staff service far exceeded even the out of the world Bali or Thai resorts! Why? They were sincere and not servile and helpful and generous. We were given a slight upgrade to a higher floor for better views and it was wonderful. Sunrise and evening breezes. The food was also spectacular with Spanish influence. The buffets were beautifully presented though Asian buffets decorate astonishingly. We had fab meals at the various separate restaurants and appreciated not having to go to the dining halls. The COVID protocols were impressive and all staff wore masks at all times. There was a COVID testing site on grounds so we were able to fulfill exit requirements easily. We did not expect to have free liquor in our package. Daily interesting Caribbean influenced cocktails appeared deckside! In addition, the landscaping was impressive and meticulously maintained. We have had tropical gardens in several countries so we appreciated the care and design of Sanctuary. I did water aerobics daily and probably the best ever. My friends also said the gym was very well equipped. WHAT needs improvement? The beach was ridiculously small tho very well maintained. Luckily there are ample pools of different configurations ,etc. More night entertainment and possibly nightly kaoroke? Board games, cards, dominos, etc could be set out in the evenings. The concierge seems to rely on telling guests to go to the QR square rather than answering questions. Lastly, to repeat, the staff were superb!! Sanctuary is well worth the price.
