What we say: 3.5 stars

Sanctuary is a bit of an odd place, with surprisingly stylish bamboo bungalows set amid flower bushes just back from the beach, but also a staff that doesn't seem to have a handle on how to efficiently run a resort. Creative types will appreciate the island-themed paintings on pieces of drift wood that hang over hammocks strung to the porches of high-pointed-roofed bungalows. Inside, the rooms are comfier than your average beach hut thanks to very soft mattresses with good quality linens and mosquito nets. The cold-water bathrooms are fully open air -- no roofs at all -- so expect your shower to be mixed with rain should you visit during the wet season. The receptionist was rather loud and straightforward, though not apathetic or unfriendly. Our request for a business card or brochure yielded a tiny scrap of paper with a barely discernible number jotted down on it.
