My husband and I stayed in Sanctuary for a week and it was our first time in Santa Maria (been only to Varadero before). The best thing about it is ocean. The beach is gorgeous, no matter what weather or time of the day it is. Food was better than we expected - shrimps and octopus almost every day, plus a great variety of fish. Same is with meat: a few options for meat (my husband was afraid of lack of food, but all seemed just fine).
The resort didn’t seem that busy so we could enjoy the pool or other facilities without crowds of people. Ping pong in Memories was a place where we spent a lot of time. Special thanks to an entertainment team - Lazeca, Leonel, Denyi, Eduardo, Richard and Leisley. If you want to know how to play pool or ping pong they will kindly help you. Also, our gardener Diego was very kind to provide us coconuts every time we asked him. Jordy, our butler from Bungalow 60 was very helpful as well!
All in all it was a great experience, except some minor details (rooms need to be upgraded; and MOSQUITOS are everywhere even though they spray it couple times a day).
Thank you Sanctuary and Grand Memories, we are planning to come back!
