    Superb 9.0 From 655 reviews

    Poor 2.0
    super cheap
    This is not a 4 or a 5 star property. As soon as you enter the room you realize that. We had gotten the honey moon suite in the castle. Problem is that there are very few photos of the room. The pool that we had outside the room was super small and there was minimal furniture outside. There were 2 pieces of 2x4 feet of dirty carpet on each side of the bed that seemed was not cleaned in ages. All the door knobs and the faucets were what you find in a cheap motel. For the price you pay for you feel like you got very little. The part that really annoyed me, and I talked to many other guests in the resort was charging $12 for internet. The only free internet is near the front desk. For you to have internet in the room you need to pay $12. After charging me $700 a night you really can't provide that service for free? Or just charge me more and give it to me for free. They are just cheap. Instead of giving us wristbands , we need to give our room number so the check arrives after each meal. Once the bill comes the balance is zero but this is their cheap way of making us paying their poor workers . The whole process takes longer. No all inclusive place pulls a cheap move like this.

    TRUE Paradise!
    Paradise, Paradise, Paradise!! That is all I kept on saying to myself and my boyfriend while we were there. We stayed 8 days and 7 beautiful nights in the Monarch Villa, which was only a short walk to the beach and main pool area. We stayed in the Monarch Villa - beautiful! We had a garden view which was totally ok because we spent most of our time at the pools and beaches. King bed was fabulous, bathroom was big and loved the separate shower and toilet rooms. The security box was a great feature and we used every day. Made us more comfortable leaving our valuable in the room and thank you for offering it :) Nicole and the staff helping her in the Villa Concierge were more then helpful with accommodating car service to and from the airport (which was only 10 min away) and took care of us in a fast and appropriate time when we arrived and left SCC. She treated us like family, which made it that much more comfortable and enjoyable. She checked in on us from time to time, not too much as she knows her guests want to enjoy their time. She took care of any needs/wants we had prior, during and after our stay. Our butler, Eric...LOVED him!! He treated us to a nice tour of the facilities, answered any and all questions we had and made many useful suggestions per where to eat, what times and took care of picking us up for reservations and taking us to the Castle pool and Ocean Bar. I know hes called a Butler, but Eric was our friend while we there..he talked to us casually and

    Very Good 8.0
    clean property, many pools, decent food and excellent events daily! a few negative points; 1. bedding sheets were extremely soggy when we checked in.. I meant every day. even papers/money became soggy in the hotel room despite of sunny weather outside. why? 2. shower booth in hotel room. water kept coming out from the shower booth (because there is no boundaries between shower booth and bathroom) and the entire bathroom became tsunami. saw people next door were complaining as well. 3. service was great. all of staff was friendly, but main chef (the tallest guy) from buffet can be really annoying. I felt like he was harassing me and chasing me around while I was getting food. kept saying hi, how are you, and talking in Spanish to his coworkers and laughing. one point I stopped smiling after getting harassed for a good 10 mins. we need some personal space here. came to relax. not to be harassed by strangers. 4. I was expecting to have some blue ocean.. but there are too many seaweeds around this hotel which made water extremely brown.. I saw them cleaning seaweeds every day, but nobody was in the water. so sad. other than these, I highly recommend this hotel. hope to come back soon! enjoy!! Thank you and especially Damiron, waiter, who served at seafood restaurant/ mexican night. you are awesome!

    Exceptional 10.0
    This resort is top-class from start to finish. From the moment we arrived on our honeymoon until the last second of our trip, the service and treatment was extraordinary. I know everyone is worried about the situation in the DR right now, but listen to me when I tell you that the food was fresh daily, security is very tight, and almost all the drinks were imported. The entire staff- from the bartenders to the first desk are very aware and conscious of the situation and reassured my wife and I that this hotel is dissimilar from any other and they definitely lived up to the hype with their work ethic and class displayed on a daily basis. Not a single second did I have my drink or even my belly empty. Everywhere you looked there was someone catering to your needs and they really made our trip such an unforgettable one! Second to none, my butler Santo was more than I could have ever asked for. He made our lives so much easier by scheduling our daily activities, keeping us informed about what's new at the resort, making dinner reservations, and even bringing us cocktail drinks while we lounged at the pool in our own room. Never did I have to ask or be worried about anything. Santo was always one step ahead of me with solutions to my needs. I honestly wish I could take this guy home with me! He was such a gentleman and I definitely hope for him to get promoted in the company ASAP! Thank you Expedia and Sanctuary for making our trip so great!

    Exceptional 10.0
    The resort was GORGEOUS! Decorated impeccably. The pools were all amazing. You could find a zen quiet place to hang out at multiple pools, or post up at the swim up bar at the main pool. The room was great! Clean and cool. The staff was AWESOME. Our butler JT was so incredibly helpful. Always anticipating our needs before we even knew we had them. I’m probably forgetting people, but Moises at our castle bar was great, Conan was SO sweet and remembered us every time we literally didn’t even have to repeat our room number more than once, Geramiah was our server multiple times and always so much fun, Gilbert and Carlos at the pool bar were awesome. We literally could not have asked for better staff. Everyone was extremely accommodating. We never had a bad meal. Especially for an all inclusive resort, I was truly impressed. Sanctuary town festival was a blast on Saturday. The steak house was SO GOOD (get the tomahawk meal for two, you cook the meat to your liking on a hot stone and it was DELICIOUS). WOK hibachi was great. Blue marlin such good seafood. We never ate at the Italian restaurant mainly because I had read that it was a fan least favorite, but based on the other food I’m sure it was at least decent. We felt more than safe our entire stay. Don’t hesitate if you are contemplating booking.
