A great vacation

My fiancé and I came with another couple for my birthday. Our butler was awesome, not a single detail was missed. They made my birthday one to remember. The resort is amazing, great service, friendly staff and very flavorful food, great variety. I would highly recommend this resort there wasn't a single thing I didn't like. They had numerous activities for everyone, my favorite was water aerobics, the instructor was great and I had a great time. If you're looking for a great resort this is the resort for you.

Best vacation ever!!!

My boyfriend and I vacationed here with another couple and we had an amazing time!!! With amazing weather, spectacular delicious food, great pools and beaches we were also spoiled with extraordinary service! With an out of the world butler we also were blown away by the entertainment staff. We looked forward to starting our day off in the pool with water aerobics. It was so fun and definitely worked my muscles. The aerobic instructor was so friendly and great to look at, too ;)! We love Sanctuary!!!

Best & Most Relaxing Vacation Ever

I would recommend the sanctuary resort. We have had the most wonderful and relaxing time. It is absolutely beautiful. We start each morning with a delicious breakfast followed by an excellent session of stretching and yoga held under a thatched cabana right over the waves. It is led by an excellent instructor. It is the perfect way to start the day. Everyone at the sanctuary is so nice and go out of their way to make sure we are having a nice time.

MOST BEAUTIFUL VILLA!!!!!with our Butler Henry who was absolutelay fabulous and super cute! He went above and beyond our expectations. Always finding us to make sure we are ok or even to ask if we need anything. HE IS THE BEST BUTLER ON PROPERTY!!! Food was good. Steak house was the BEST!!!During the day make sure you hang out around the pool and look for Baby Face, Nicole and Sanders they will definitely make your trip a memorable one! Amazing energy always smiling and happy and always making sure everything is enjoyable for you. I would go back here every trip.

Learn Spanish with Samuel L Jackson!!

Yeah. Thought that'd get your attention!!But it's kinda true. Sander, our Spanish instructor, religiously there by the pool at 10:30 every day, genuinely looks like SLJ!! But then they all take famous/funny nicknames as well - e.g. Kevin Hart (jnr), Baby Face, The Queen, etc. Sanctuary is awesome. Yes the rooms are great and the pools are wide, empty and cool. But it's the staff that make The Sanctuary so pleasant. They honestly couldn't do anything more for us. From Eric, our ever attentive butler, to Nancy our chambermaid - they were so brilliant. If you book via an agency, I promise you that you will not need to ever talk to your rep - apart from reluctantly confirming your flights home. The restaurants can be hit and miss but everything else is fantastic. I'm trying to avoid a drawn out diatribe here so let me be nerdy and put the pros and cons in a list...Great: The Honeymoon suite (photos attached); Wok restaurant (make sure book to have the "Yeah baby chef experience"); Capriccio Italian restaurant; service (Eric and Nancy); liquor (generally, most brands available); Spanish lessons; pool aerobics; pool bar; Stanley's beach BBQ (ask for the pescado or Pollo Dominicado); Dirty Banana cocktails; Casabella breakfast & lunch buffet. Good: Entertainment (must see the gymnasts and the Dominican Night); private beach (lots of seaweed but the wonderful staff clear it every day);Meh: Blue Marlin (Grouper poor but Hake good, entrees average, venue excellent); Steakhouse (poor quality meat but nevertheless cooked well); beer (tasteless lager plop but cold and refreshing). Layout (lots of blind turns and stairwells can get you lost in he first few days).Bad: karaoke (my choice, I willingly pay to hear good singers but cringe at bad ones); idiots claiming sunbeds; sales people with their t-shirts and jewellery; spa pricesTop Tip 1: Haggle an upgrade when you arrive. I paid 40% brochure price for the honeymoon suite. If you do better then that's awesome!!Top Tip 2: USE your butler (if you get one). They really WANT to help. Get them to make reservations, exchange money for you, launder your clothes and bring booze to your room, etc. Then relax and enjoy your holiday. Top Tip 3: If you buy jewellery or gifts from the small stalls that are allowed in occasionally then barter down to 25%-30% of their original asking price. Show them the money to force the sale at your price. It worked for me. Top Tip 4: Tip. The staff work 12-14 hour days, 12 on/3 off and salaries are low. So please tip the lovely staff. They never stop smiling and serving everybody - often in blazing heat.
