    Sanctuary Cap Cana-All Inclusive Adults Only by Playa Hotel, Punta Cana
    The staff at this place just does not "get it" very sad to have that kind of facility with poor help. We rented a car - I think many people just taxi there from airport. I called front desk for my car, told them we were in hurry and could not be delayed. They said "OK Understood" Of course we get down to front desk they knew nothing about it. Took another 20 minutes to get the car (they had to find the keys and then the bell person said no one told him anything) The two excuss deal. At the pool the day we left ordered a Pina colada to be brought out in ten minutes, as we had to leave. It was not brought out as we were leaving the pool we saw the bar tender massaging and kissing the womans hand that worked there at the conceige desk. Are room service breakfast was short silver wear by the time it got there breakfast was cold.! The whirlpool tub did not accept water, called houskeeping they sent someone up who replaced a valve or something, when we filled tub up got in and turned on jets tub had a lot of sand in it. So we went from bath tub to shower just to get sand off us. Of course they were skimpy on towels. This place was not at all worth the money we spent. .

    Meh. 3.5 star resort, at best.
    We just got back from a 7 night stay. Pros: The location is great. Easy to get to from airport. Plenty of beach front. Staff was very pleasant. Henry, our concierge, was great. Carlos in the pool bar was awesome. Mr. New York lead great yoga instruction. Cons: Place is run down. While we did like our room, we had to have our door lock repaired because it had obviously been kicked in on a previous stay. The food was mediocre, in the best cases. The only restaurant worth going to was the steak house. Do NOT go to the Italian restaurant. It was downright gross. Poolside, you have to get there early to get a good spot or to get one of the mats for the pool. This wasn't an issue for us, but they seriously only had maybe 20 mats for everyone to share. I booked this stay on a good deal. If I had paid full price, I would have been furious. DR is nice, the people are great, but spend your money elsewhere.
