Overview

Quiet property with friendly and attentive staff
Small beach with lots of seaweed

Perched between Cap Cana Marina and the Caribbean Sea, less than 9 miles southwest of Punta Cana International Airport, Sanctuary Cap Cana lives up to its name, providing a peaceful escape for travelers. At this adults-only, all-inclusive resort in Punta Cana, you'll find suites outfitted with furnished balconies or terraces, flat-screen TVs, espresso machines and silk bathrobes. When you're not in your well-appointed digs, enjoy the expansive grounds: Sanctuary Cap Cana boasts five pools and five restaurants (plus an additional six eateries in the adjacent food-focused Sanctuary Town facility). For dinner with a view, head to Blue Marlin, which is raised on stilts over the sea. While Sanctuary Cap Cana is certainly a treat for the eyes and taste buds, recent guests cited the excellent customer service as the main reason for planning a repeat visit. However, some warned that beach bums may be disappointed with the on-site beach: The tiny stretch of sand is filled with seaweed.

READ MORE 

The stellar keystone of Cap Cana is now for adults only and has never been in better shape since a major renovation in 2014. The resort's gorgeous stone facade is reminiscent of the 16th-century Alcázar de Colón in Santo Domingo, the interior public spaces influenced by Dominican colonial-style mansions.
