Its inspired design combines the charm of a Spanish colonial village with the laid-back sensuality of the Caribbean and the stylish sophistication of streamlined, modern design accents. Bougainvillea-lined pathways lead guests through the resort grounds to 176 expansive, private suites housed in replicas of a tower, colonial buildings and fortress. Within the resort are 5 exceptional restaurants, 5 bars, an elegant casino, a half-mile private beach with sugar-white sand, and meeting space for up to 500 guests, while just minutes away lie all the world-class recreational appeals of Cap Cana.

The resort arranged for us to golf at some of the best (the mos

I would like staff from the resort to contact me. I am trying to view my reservation on the Santuary Cap Cana website, however my confirmation number is coming up as "not found." This is concerning me. There is a phone number, but I would much rather communicate with someone via email, and there is no email address listed for the resort under "contact us." Do any travellers have an email they could pass along? Thank you.
Hi, As TA does not allow URL's or e_mail addresses to be posted here in the Q&A Section I have just sent you a PM with someone you can contact at the property

What types of excursions can I book once I arrive at the resort?
Some of the options we were given were: Four wheeling, golf, Scape Park, A day trip to an island with lunch included, a few hours out on a booze cruise. The resort does have a free bike tour every morning you can reserve of the surrounding area, about an hour long, depending on your requested intensity.

Hello, I'm also booked in a Premium Luxury Junior Suite Ocean View. I've seen very few reviews of these rooms. How are they? Would it be better to stay in the castle? What are the pro's and con's of the Premium Luxury Junior Suite Ocean View rooms? Thanks in advance.
Escape We are staying at the property again this May and will take some photos of the new suites for you

"I'm not sure there was a bad room in the entire place. They were just finishing a brand new, or totally refurbished, tower."
"Eat at the Fusion Restaurant... it is the most fun you will have out!"
"Do not get rip off by upgrading to a castle room all the other rooms are just as nice"
"All are good locations but you can also choose villas."
"If booked in the castle, make sure to ask for room away from noisy beach entertainment,"
