The Sanctuary Resort and Spa is a splendid hotel located in Playa Azul, very close to Nosara Guanacaste. This resort, a little off the beaten path offers a semi private beach and plenty of peaceful moments alongside your loved ones.

The hotel has two restaurants, The Blue Dolphin, ideal for an exquisite romantic dinner, and Bogey's Hideaway, to enjoy fast food and delicious snacks. The pool area includes swimming pool, Jacuzzi, and an outdoor massage station.

The rooms are classically decorated, very different from the majority of the hotels in Guanacaste and throughout Costa Rica, making them ideal for couples in search of complete privacy and romance. In the hotel's tropical gardens you can enjoy beautiful sunsets and the soothing sounds of the ocean.

The person in charge of the activities offers to take the hotel guests on optional early morning walks along the beach, lasting around 2 ½ hours. There is also a large variety of table games available in the pool area to help make your stay comfortable and memorable. The staff's hospitality and friendliness is one of The Sanctuary Hotel’s strengths.

While you visit, you can experience unforgettable horseback rides along the beach, or take part in some of the other interesting cultural activities offered, such as visiting a local school where you will have the opportunity to share some of your time with the children of the community.
