Punta Cana resort sparkles with swim-out suites, luxury spa

The sprawling villa façade of Sanctuary Cap Cana is only one clue to the grandeur that lies within. The Spanish Colonial-inspired resort spares no opulence. Guests retire to spacious suites and villas-some with direct access to the saltwater pool. Restaurants and bars play up the tropical setting, while an upscale spa ensures private time.

Highlights
  • Resort with high-end amenities
  • Full-service spa
  • Multiple restaurants and bars
  • Some rooms with direct access to the saltwater pool
  • Near two Jack Nicklaus-designed golf courses
Rooms

Guests unwind in high style in the suites and villas in Sanctuary Cap Cana. Some rooms take on contemporary style (think espresso wood platform beds and mod lamps), while others veer more tropical (intricate cutout arches, straw-based furniture and knotty wood walls). Upscale amenities raise the comfort, thanks to fine linens, silk bathrobes and marble floors. Soaring ceilings and expansive patios or balconies amplify the luxury. An extraordinary treat: Some rooms offer swim-out access to the saltwater pool.

Features

Visitors get pampered at the resident spa, a retreat beloved for its pool, hydrotherapy services and massages. Guests also indulge in the five swimming pools, bartending and dance lessons and golf courses nearby.

Dining

Restaurants at Sanctuary Cap Cana pay special attention to ambiance. Blue Marlin, a casual seafood eatery, sets the scene for relaxation with oceanfront dining, while Argentinean grill The Steakhouse stirs drama with a cast iron and brick oven that uses charcoal to fire juicy meats to perfection. For the most special of occasions, request a private, candlelit, seaside table. Follow up with a cocktail at the romantic Love bar, one of many lounges on the property.

Beautiful Resort / Great Amenities

Resort was meticulously maintained and beautiful. They also did a great job with entertainment and the staff/service was friendly. Only cons is the food was mediocre and the beach had a lot of seaweed. However, there is a great semi-public beach right next to the hotel that I would recommend for those that want to go in the water.

wonderful getaway with my daughter

It was a last minute decision to take a spring break with my college age daughter and a friend of hers. The rooms were beautiful, the dining areas also had a gorgeous view of the ocean, the food was really good, too! Breakfast buffet was my favorite! There were plenty of activities for the girls to do. We were never bored. Excellent place to stay. I would recommend it to families who like comfort, beauty, activities for all ages and good food! The front desk arrival was challenging. I think that was a language situation though. Other than that we really enjoyed our stay.

amaZing Holiday!

This resort to say the least is beautiful. The food impeccable and the staff is amicable while maintaining a clear goal to best serve the guest. Moreover, planning excursions was easy. My only criticism is the front Desk staff who take forever to do anything and checking in can be a nightmare with them. Overall, it is a beautiful location and I will be sure to return again.

Nightlife tip: Not Applicable

There is a bus at night that goes to a casino in the heart of the city. I don't gamble, but it gave me the opportunity to explore the local nightlight which was very vibrant! By taking the bus it is a free ride in and out of the city directly to the resort.

This was a really nice getaway trip.

Everything was nice, the weather was not so hot, no humid, sunshine everyday. The Hotel was huge, 3 or 4 pools, Jacuzzi, 3 or 4 restaurants with delicious food, the room was huge, and the view was amazing. The staff were all the time friendly and polite. It was a place to relax and enjoy with my wife. There are some activities that you can get like driving buggies, riding horses, etc. I would recommend this place for relaxing.

First Time in Dominican Republic

The location of this Resort is lovely!! It's very remote. And when the Marina area builds up it will be better. The staff was very friendly & willing to help. The food / restaurants were very limited though. And while it is a family friendly resort, I would not call it kid friendly fun... They have no daily activities or shows during the evening. The property and beaches are beautiful!! But they need to "grow" in all the other areas. It's much more suited to quieter adults and newlyweds.

Perfect vacation

I had been to many resorts but Sanctuary is by far my new favorite ! From the moment we arrived the experience was impeccable. The front desk asked if we would like to stay in the room we booked or if we would like to move to a villa because they noticed it may be better with our 3 yrs old daughter. I was skeptical because of my previous experiences with resorts trying to "push" a worse room. I was wrong! The villa was perfect for us. The facilities are amazing and the people are extremely nice. I recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to have a nice vacation.

Great hotel - one of the best all-inclusive resorts for food and service. Only negative is that there was a lot of seaweed in the water. Otherwise perfect.
