We had a few nights at Sanctuary in November. The entire property is amazing, from the gardens to the pool and the apartments. The managers, Richard and Karyn were amazing and helped us with day trips and restaurant choices. We would highly recommend Sanctuary to all our family and friends.

4 of us stayed in a 3 bedded apartment but only used two bedrooms. We had 4 nights there. Richard and Karyn Hewitson (the Managers) were so helpful with the little problems that we had and couldn't fault them or the apartment. It was so central for the local restaurants. We spent 4 nights there and would not hesitate to...

My wife and I stayed 4 nights in the one bedroom bungalow situated near the lake. It was very comfortable, spacious and private. The accommodation is close to the beach and the restaurant strip. The management was very helpful with tourist and restaurant suggestions.

We booked a 3 bed aprtment for our family of 5 adults. The apartment had real wow factor -very high quality finish, fixtures, fittings and appliances. The apartment was very light with large bi-fold doors onto the balcony plus louvre windows across another wall. Being on an upper floor we had a lovely view out over the resort. The apartment...

I must say that the entrance to the property is a little disappointing (needs a facelift maybe?) but behind the gates lies a very neat and inviting property. The apartments are fabulous - large, very clean, modern - easily accomodates 2 adults and a child or two (although I'm commenting on 2 adults using the apartment. Would definitely stay here...
