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.

We went to Sanctuary Cap Cana for our honeymoon about a week ago, and it was one of the best vacations we have ever been on. We splurged because it was our honeymoon and got a monarch villa oceanfront room with a butler. Eric was amazing and spent time to ensure that we were

Filet mignon for two at the Steakhouse!
Amazing view of the ocean from the balcony of the Castle Junior Suite Ocean Front.
You won’t find oceanfront AND reasonable....expect $500-$600 per night before tips for nice ocean views...do your research and good luck!

I don’t know about that section. There is an elevator between the lower pool/ restaurants and lobby. There are elevators in the castle suites. Golf carts take you everywhere you want on demand. It’s pretty modern all around. I would call or email the front desk to make sure.
