The all-inclusive resorts of Cancun are famous for celebrating their guest’s birthdays – at meals, decorations for the room, banners slashed across the front door. 

Sanctuary Cap Cana was quite lavish too.  A banner was fastened to the door and a very special meal enjoyed at the Steakhouse

For details about the 3,875 sq. ft. Tower suite, I suggest the reader access the resort’s web site, select Accommodations, and navigate down to Tower Suites. 

This webpage focuses on the exceptional patio space and the outstanding views of the grounds and ocean that it provides.  The first patio picture is the sight upon exiting the living room and / or master bedroom. 

The second patio picture was taken with my back to the ocean and highlighted the hot tub which, frankly, was not “hot” – the water is cool and probably limited our use of it.  Water stains marking the stucco exterior and an elevator out of service limited our appraisal to Four Stars.  A three-month long renovation this summer will upgrade Sanctuary to Five Stars.  Regardless, the place is still a paradise. 


The gazebo is nestled in the patio corner and provides privacy, comfort, and excellent views of the property, beach, and ocean.

I awoke early one morning to send an important email.  The sun was beginning to rise and though I had captured many beautiful sunsets over the years, I’d never photographed a sunrise before and grabbed my camera. 

I waited ten minutes and captured the sun peeking above the horizon.

The next picture was taken from the living room terrace to show the great house and it’s huge patio located to our west.

The same view of the grounds taken during late sunset which was a must picture.
