AMAZING HONEYMOON

This resort is incredible. It is perfect for honeymooners who want to get away from the busy of everyday. It feels like you are in a tropical rainforest with the beach right at your fingertips...

The hospitality was incredible and the resort is beautiful. We went to all 3 resorts in St Lucia and Halcyon Beach is by far the best in our opinion for the privacy, the ambiance and the staff.

Vanessa and Zenith from the Red Lane Spa are absolutely incredible at what they do. My husband and I go to couple massages as much as we can when we are home so we have had our share of them but this one was the BEST one we have ever gotten. We got the Tropical Paradise Couples Massage for 90 min and it was so good that we booked another one before we left so we had one the day after we got there and one the day before we left and it was worth every penny. When we come back to renew our vows in a couple of years we are asking for Vanessa and Zenith, we have never felt more relaxed.

Neil, Prince Nicki and Brandon from the Entertainment Dept made our stay in Halcyon Beach. These guys work incredibly hard to put on some amazing entertainment every single night. We stayed for 7 nights and went all 7 nights and were never disappointed. What made it so extra special is that on Saturday April 23rd it also happened to be my birthday and Prince Nicki had the Reggae Night performer sing me happy birthday in front of the whole resort and had us dancing all night long. I was so surprised but also extremely grateful and so so happy and it made for such an incredible birthday. THANK YOU! P.S. The Michale Jackson show is our favorite

Merklyn and Alvin from the Photo Dept were so incredible in capturing our memories for our honeymoon. Merklyn did our free 20 min session and Alvin took pictures of us in our Candlelight dinner and we LOVE our pictures. They were very professional and talented and we have those pictures to treasure forever.

Daniel and Tevin were our FAVORITE Bartenders. They made the absolute best drinks on the island and were so accommodating and even when we didn’t know what drink they would make us the coolest, tastiest drinks that honestly made our honeymoon so much more fun. Tevin makes the BEST Mango Daiquiris I have ever had and Daniel is a master mixologist who comes up with the best drinks on the fly.

Lisa at the Bayside Grill is so lovely and always remembered us and asking us how our stay was. She was so warm and welcome and just so pleasant with excellent hospitality.

Shatal the Duty Free Shop Manager is so nice and professional and being in retail myself, she showed me above and beyond service when I went in to buy a long sleeve rash guard shirt as I had burnt from the sun. She was so patient and lovely and even gave me 2 rubber duckies that were dressed like bride and groom when I told her we were there for our honeymoon. Exceptional service which was very much appreciated during out stay.

Shara was the life of the party. I am not sure where she worked as we saw her everywhere helping out from the Bayside Grill to dancing in the morning entertainment by the pool but she is so nice and lovely.

Chanda from Club Sandals team. I left the best for last. She is INCREDIBLE. The whole team from Club Sandals really delivers above and beyond service and hospitality. I would go in everyday of my stay and try to get some coconut cookies as they were the best I’ve had, and they didn’t have them one day so Chanda heard me and let me know that she would see if they had some in the kitchen and would make sure I had some in my room. When we got back to the room later that day and I saw the plate of cookies with the sweetest note, I was so incredibly happy and beyond surprised at this level of hospitality as I have never in any other hotel or resort received this kind of special treatment and I felt so special like I was the only couple in the resort and that is hard to do with so many couples they had to provide excellent service too. JUST INCREDIBLE. THANK YOU CHANDA!! Also for my birthday the Club Sandals team had left a piece of cake in my room with a happy birthday chocolate on top and that meant so much to me as I was away from home for the first time celebrating my birthday.

I also rarely leave reviews and am so busy with 2 little boys but this is how important this was to me that I let you guys know that SANDALS HALCYON BEACH in St Lucia is the BEST RESORT YOU HAVE in St Lucia as I have not visited the other islands but having visited all 3 in St Lucia HALCYON BEATS both La Tac and the Grand because of the location and the PEOPLE in our opinion.

Resort staff is amazing

Recently my wife and I went to Sandals Halcyon for our honeymoon and we had a fantastic time! The resort staff really makes our stay special and they make you feel warm and welcomed. You really start to connect with them on a personal level. A few people that made our honeymoon extra special are…

  • Merkyln (the man that does it all)
  • Michelle at Travel works -Leshaun the Don with the entertainment The pool side bartenders and staff -Liz -Anicia -Chrystal And so many more; but just to name a few that made our trip so special...

The live entertainment was amazing and the Michael Jackson show on Mondays is a must see.

Beautiful place, beautiful people but…

Review by MissT_11 London, United Kingdom

My husband and I had very mixed feelings about this Sandals resort. Our first trip out of the UK in nearly 3 years, we had very high expectations and maybe that’s where it went wrong. We’ve never stayed at a Sandals resort before...

The resort itself is beautiful. I think what we both agreed we liked best was the fact that all the employees seemed to be local, which not only gave it a genuine feel about being on the island but we loved the fact it was helping local employment. All the staff were very personable and enthusiastic. Happy to chat and answer any questions. They weren’t kidding about the free bar! The choice and quantity exceeded any expectations. What let it down was the feeling it was catering to a more American clientele. The food in particular let it down. Who wants to travel to the tropics and eat burgers, nachos or French cuisine? The buffets were not great ie breakfast and lunch, many of the dishes undercooked or just cold when they should have been hot..eggs Benedict springs to mind. For dinner the main restaurant served French a la carte (French onion soup in 30 degree heat?!), a mediocre Italian ( the buffet for the appetiser was what saved it) or a grill, again with limited fresh fish choices more steakhouse. The teppanyaki (which needed prebooking) was good but have to say the sushi bar was amazing, finally fresh fish! We didn’t feel any local cuisine was really showcased. Our room and the view were perfect. A lot of effort went into making sure it was spotless. We did feel like no one had ever stepped foot into our suite let alone stay the night. There was an issue though with the bathroom amenities, they seemed to have run out of body wash for our last two nights…which was odd given there are another two sandals resorts on the island. The security of the hotel had definitely been addressed, so much so that we did wonder if there had been a previous issue. I’ve never stayed anywhere where you needed to tell the guard where you were going on leaving the premises (the supermarket) let alone give room numbers to walk the full stretch of the beach. There were some great excursions though and the massage was amazing. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable stay but a few little details need addressing.
