This is my 2nd review of this wonderful Hotel, the first was a few years ago. Surprisingly the Sanctuary has not aged at all, only become better. I didnt realise just how massive the 3 bedroom apartment actually is. After a few overseas trips in very small rooms, this place feels like home. Everything was so clean and everything worked....

The apartment had all the amenities you could ask for...

Such friendly staff. Amazing pool. Could spend all day there and not feel guilty. Very spacious rooms. Very quiet and private but only 1 minute away from the main shops. Lots of information provided on activities to do at reception.

The pool is absolutely fabulous and even during a busy period (NYE) felt wonderfully private. Palm Cove itself is so beautiful...

We had a few nights at Sanctuary in November. The entire property is amazing, from the gardens to the pool and the apartments. The managers, Richard and Karyn were amazing and helped us with day trips and restaurant choices. We would highly recommend Sanctuary to all our family and friends.
