The Sanctuary Resort is 2 hours drive from the Liberia Airport, but it is worth the drive. The Beach houses are great. The view of the ocean from the from porch is fabulous. The food was good. The pool was nice. The ocean is beautiful. The
staff was great and very friendly. The first night we stayed in one of the hotel rooms. There was no view of the ocean. They moved us to a beach house, which was wonderful.
