Sandals Grande St. Lucian
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Set on is own little peninsula with a long sheltered white sand beach, the Sandals Grande St. Lucian offers excellent service and great cuisine in a setting that's a little more lively than the neighboring Sandals Regency La Toc. With the honeymoon suites you can swim right up to your room from the lagoon pool, or take is step further and go for the Rondoval suites which offer your own private plunge pool. Use the facilities of the nearby Sandals Regency La Toc, including complimentary green fees. Great for couples.
It's been 5 years since we've stayed at the Grande. That won't happen again. We've already rebooked for September 2018. Yes, the ride to/from the resort/airport isn't my cup of tea. I get motion sickness and this time didn't disappoint in that area. Next year, we'll be taking the helicopter, so problem solved. That's the only negative about our trip. This resort will not disappoint! It's top notch from top to bottom.The GM, Winston Anderson, is one of the best Sandals has to offer. He's a very hands on type of manager and is often seen walking around the resort and is easily approachable. In his eyes, there are no issues that cannot be positively resolved.The Director of Elite Services, Rohan Louis, is definitely one of a kind. She knows how to take care of her guests. She'll make your vacation the best it can be and then some.The Loyalty team.......Tamara, Emma, Gilbert. They took extremely good care of us. Very attentive and always making sure we were having the best vacation we could have. They're very good at their jobs, we booked 2 returning trips with them before we left.The watersports team......Derek, Leroy, Brandon, Ken, Vanessa.....these are some of the best ambassadors for the Sandals Grande team. Always welcoming and willing to do anything to make their guests happy. My husband is a waterskier and he had nothing but praise for the whole watersports team. Forgive me if I've missed some of the team names. They were all fantastic!Our housekeeper, Trancha. OMG, she was fantastic. Such a warm and lovely person who really appreciates her guests. We saw her almost every morning as she was beginning her work day. Always approached us with a warm welcome and huge smile. We loved her!And then there's Peter, the bartender at the swim up bar. This guy is good! After spending time in the pool the first day, he remembered what we drank every single day we were there. Most of the time, he had another drink waiting for us without even asking. Truly an asset to the Sandals Grande team, with such a great attitude and awesome smile.There are so many more team members that we encountered throughout our week that made our vacation one of our best ever. We never saw anyone that didn't have a smile on their faces or didn't greet us with a welcoming hello. We can't wait to return!
Loved this place , it is everything I hoped it would be.The beach is beautiful & clean , the pool and food halls are very impressive .......... Food is amazing .I can't recommend it enough ! Book it ! ? Book it !
First off, let me say my husband had never seen the beach so I wanted the best of the best for him and let me tell you... it was by far the best of the best in every single way. His expectations are probably going to forever be high now lol.Room- we just did a basic beach view with no extra services because we were only in our room to sleep, but if you spend more time in your room on trips it's worth investment. Rooms were always tidied and ours was freshly remodeled. Housekeeping let me tell you was on the ball. We had fresh towels twice a day and the room was always tidied so well. Food- Food wasn't the best I've ever had, but it wasn't bad either.Our favorite breakfast location was the Italian restaurant and let me tell you my husband can eat and that's what he loved most of all (of course he had to have his steak and eggs). The buffet was alright, nothing special typical buffet food just not what we really like. Lunch: Barefoot and Mariners was good selection. We also had Bayside buffet (but felt the same as we did about breakfast buffet). Dino's was really good flat bread pizza. Josephine's has amazing crepes and ice cream if you're look for a sweeter lunch (also have savory crepes but we didn't try those). Dinner we ate at majority of the places our favorites was swordfish from barefoot and Gordon's! The pub was good for apps and cool atmosphere. Staff: Exceptional guest service. I've been several places and the staff at the Grande blew anywhere I've ever been out of the water. They work their butts off majority of them 6 days a week and always have a smile and upbeat vibe all day, everyday. I would like to personally recognize Jackie from the Pub- that girl bust her butt and is the nicest, sweetest, precious thing I've ever met. We loved engaging with her and hearing about the island life. Unfortunately, I got sun poisoning my last day and that girl didn't even wink and brought be one of her mommas home remedies for my rash. Jackie girl I know you know who I am when you read this! You da bomb girl. Francis (younger one) that worked the island bar always had a smile on his face and would make us his special. So sweet! Peter at the swim up bar knows how to pour it down man. Whooo he knows how to make everyone have a good time.Excursions : we signed up for JJ boat tour but it got cancelled so we did Joe Knows and took shuttle to Halcyon and boat dock. So worth every penny. The mudd bath is hot as hell I would recommend going before you get a sunburn. The waterfall is so beautiful! The food we had was "okay." The rum punch us delicious. Eat before you go too!! The entertainment is top notch! They will make sure you are having fun. This trip surpassed five stars all together. It was completely amazing. We also found a new couple we absolutely fell in love with and it was nice having company if you like company I suggest befriending a couple to tag along with. We all booked our next vacation for the new Sandels Barbados! We are so excited! Joe and I will always remember our honeymoon in St. Lucia, and we will definitely be back for some anniversary. Thank you to all the amazing staff who made this week one of the best of all times.Nichole & Joe
This was our fourth Sandals resort, and the Grande St. Lucian is probably our favourite. The luxury room was a little older than other resorts, but still perfectly clean and spacious. Every member of staff was excellent - very polite, courteous and obliging. We have to mention the spa staff and the water sports team in particular - big shout out to Vanessa, Brendon, Derek, Everton, Donovan, Ken, Lerry and Ron - for being so much fun. We made full use of the facilities, including a couples massage, diving, water sports, tennis, entertainment, beach, excursions through Island Routes and the gym. We did the zip-lining and JJ's speedboat tours - both excellent and fully recommended. We also hired jet skis from the beach at the resort from Big-D's rentals - again, excellent service and lots of fun (thanks Max!). The food at every restaurant was faultless for us, including those which you have to book and the walk-ins too. We wouldn't change anything of our experience, except to book the helicopter transfer to and from the airport, as the 1.5 hour (on a good day...) drive was a little tedious. Beautiful views though.
We had a great time!! Very nice resort and grounds. Staff all very very friendly and eager to help! Food was great, we loved Gordan's. Ate there twice! Crepes were tasty, pizza was awesome. Had pizza almost daily after being out at the beach/pool all day. Drinks always good especially from Peter at the pool bar! He was so friendly and made awesome drinks! Qruistal (spelling?) was our server at Toscaninis for breakfast one morning and she was excellent!! Nicholas at the beach bar was also one of our favorites. Our room was always clean and had what we needed. Fridge was shocked with water bottles, soda and juices. The water wasn't the clearest we've seen but was still beautiful. The hammocks, swing and floating rings out in the water were nice! The hike at Pigeon Island is awesome! 8$ per person and it's a workout, wear tennis shoes! The gym was small but had everything you'd need. Very nice. Overall we had a wonderful time, this was our 1st time at Sandals and we would return!
