2021 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
Its inspired design combines the charm of a Spanish colonial village with the laid-back sensuality of the Caribbean and the stylish sophistication of streamlined, modern design accents. Bougainvillea-lined pathways lead guests through the resort grounds to 176 expansive, private suites housed in replicas of a tower, colonial buildings and fortress. Within the resort are 5 exceptional restaurants, 5 bars, an elegant casino, a half-mile private beach with sugar-white sand, and meeting space for up to 500 guests, while just minutes away lie all the world-class recreational appeals of Cap Cana.

My husband and I have been coming to Santuary twice a year for the past 3 years. We love everything about this resort. Most of all we really enjoy the staff. They are so friendly and helpful, we not only look forward to a vacation, we look forward seeing the staff we have met who have become our friends (who surprising all remember us considering all the people they come across) that in itself really makes us not want to go elsewhere. We feel right at home every visit! We enjoy eating at the steak house the most. We aren’t into seafood so the steak house is perfect for us. We also love Santuary town. We honestly have nothing but great things to say about this resort. If you are always on the go in your home life, juggling work schedules, kids, activities etc. then the relaxing vibe at Santuary is for you. We actually just booked our trip for May 2022… and we can’t wait! Maybe a complimentary upgrade to a villa will be in our near future?!😉 We can’t wait to see everyone in May!🤗

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!

My wife and I came on our honeymoon and really enjoyed the resort and staff at Sanctuary Cap Cana. Our butler, Jesus gave us great service, and we really enjoyed the entire staff including our waiters Jose Alberto (J-Rod), Oscar, our bartender Jordan and many others. We would recommend the resort to our friends and others who ask.

The resort itself is beautiful to say the least. It has views of the ocean from every pool, and the private beach is only steps away, quiet and stunning. The breakfast and lunch buffet food was good, and the Italian restaurant is far and away the best food at the resort. But the real highlights were Sanctuary Town, and the resort staff. The food in Sanctuary town is like eating at food truck stands, but nicer. Beers of the World was our favourite night spot, and Jeuri who tended the bar was awesome. Extremely friendly, got just as into our games as we did and we had a great chat with him when we were the only 2 at the bar. Mr. Spicy, Fido, Wakey Wakey, the magic, and more were the folks running the poolside and games and they made our trip exceptionally fun even when we were just laying at the pool. The castle is beautiful, the gym is fully stocked, and the drinks were great quality. We felt safe the entire time during COVID travel, but the restrictions didn't weigh on you at all. Would definitely go back again and recommend!
