Sanctuary Beach Resort
Our stay was better than hoped for. The location and the staff were all exceptional. Will go again in the future.

Very Good8.0
View and staff were top notch!
Staff-A+ - friendly, accommodating and anticipated our every need. Room and view were beautiful. We will stay again. A couple of recommendations to the management; provide soft pillows so guests have a choice. The pillows were on the firm side and we prefer soft. The view of the ocean was spectacular and there were two chairs with throw blankets facing that gorgeous view. Unfortunately, the way the shutters work, only one person got to enjoy the unobstructed view at a time. Consider changing to shutters that don’t slide side to side but rather fanfold back to open up the entire view. The bathroom was odd. No place to put makeup or hair tools due to pedestal sink. Some wasted space with an empty alcove.

We loved the property. Very nice ( but we paid for it.Bell hops and maids were exceptional. Tried to call from our room a few times. Disappointed that there was No answer even when trying to call the “operator”? This was not good at all. Seems as if bell hops and maids ran the place. Front desk staff nice but seem new. I wanted to talk to management re using this property for a family vacation. I would need four ocean view rooms and one ocean view suite. But there was no “management there to talk to. Dissapointing. We stayed in room 716 on wed. Feb 7 for two nights. Only person who impressed us was “Sumi” (not sure of spelling). A bellhop.

Worth every penny!!! Pleasant and attentive staff, amazing rooms, secluded and quiet. Great accommodations and perfect in every way!

Sanctuary Beach Resort
Loved it! We will visit again.
Overall the property was beautiful. Rooms are smaller than they appear advertise pictures. Still we were satisfied with the layout. Book an Oceanfront room if you want to have beach access. Oceanview rooms have restricted views with no "direct" beach access. Cons: no microwave in room, mini fridge fully stocked with overpriced products leaving no room for our own items (not a huge deal). Pros: Resort location was perfect, we found so many great resteraunts within a 10 minutes drive in either direction. And the bonfire at night was awesome.
