8/10 Very good

The rooms could use some improvement. Bathrooms are old and dated. Rooms feel dated as well. Balcony screens rusted. The restaurant was nice and food was good. Being walking distance to such a serene beach is also a very nice experience.

4/10 Fair

I can summarize my stay at Sanctuary with one word. YUCK. Our "panoramic deluxe" room was small, dated and inconvenient. Does not match the photos at all. Room had no nightstand, no dresser, not a single drawer in sight. Which means you need to put all your belonging on the surface and there's not much of that either. What's extra annoying is that there is a random recess wall in the bathroom that can fit a dresser or some kind of storage. Speaking of surface, everything feels old and dated. Bathroom stinks like a public restroom. The bathtubs are old with scum, had to wear flip flops into shower kind of tub. Sinks are old with crack and rust. Countertops are old with grime. Chairs, bedding, towels are old, stained and need to be replaced. The restaurant on site - does not taste good. Nobody in our party of 5 enjoyed the food. Only saving grace of this place is the convenience to the beach. We spent almost $1000/night for two rooms and it felt like an extremely overpriced Motel. Actually, I'm pretty sure there are cleaner and newer Motels.

Home away from home
Almost afraid to leave a glowing review because I love this home away from home. Great place to enjoy the ocean and relax by the beach. Staff is amazing, attentive, and makes you feel like you're home.
