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.
My husband and I had an absolutely amazing time at the Sandals Grande! The resort is absolutely beautiful, and the staff is incredibly kind and accommodating. Keep an eye out for Peter at the pool bar, and make sure to try the Peter Special, so good! There is always a ton of stuff to do, and lots of opportunities to enjoy the beautiful island. Coming back was difficult! Highly recommend this resort! Definitely plan on doing another Sandals vacation in the future.
My wife and I travel frequently and have been blessed to stay at some very nice 5-star resorts over the years. Although this property is not, and are giving it 3, we still had a very good time and hope you do too. The pluses: good location on the island, nice beach, VERY pleasant staff (Amos was such a gentleman), awesome A/C (important in summer) great fitness center and pretty solid entertainment each night. The drawbacks: the property is dated and you feel it, the food and drink while plentiful, are not exemplary, and the butler service is maybe not quite as advertised. Again, we enjoyed our time at the Grande St Lucian and with the right expectations going in, I'll bet they find a way to exceed them.
I stayed at the Grande St. Lucian for my honeymoon in July 2017. The trip started great, but was completely overshadowed by a bad experience. The last 3 nights of our stay there was a party next door to the resort. This party started around 10pm each night and did not stop until around 8am the next morning. It was so loud we were unable to sleep the last 3 nights. We shoved cotton balls in our ears and had pillows over our heads but you could still hear the music clearly. This really ruined the last half of our trip. We spoke with our travel agent and even sent her a video to show how incredibly loud the noise was. We also spoke to some friends who had stayed at the resort and they also had issues with the noise. Our guests said it was a pretty common occurrence. After our travel agent reached out to Sandals, the Company apologized, but said it wasn't fault and there was nothing they would do to rectify the situation. I understand that the resort and staff were not causing the noise, but they clearly know about the constant parties and did nothing to warn us. I am extremely disappointed in how Sandals handled the situation. While the trip started off well, the ending and Sandals behavior has ensured that I will not return to any Sandals resort again. There are many other resort options and I would encourage anyone looking to visit the island to research other resorts.
We went back and forth trying to decide which Sandals resort to choose for our vacation. Thanks to the help of our travel agent, Mike with Dream Makers Vacation Services, we chose one of the most amazing resorts. Mike is great because he has been to so many resorts and always helps us choose the right resort and room choice. Our vacation started with the helicopter flight (St. Lucia Helicopters) which was a great way to see St Lucia. The check in process was so relaxing. Lance was such a pleasure to work with. He assisted us with check in, reservations, excursions, check out...anything we needed. He was so pleasant. When we arrived we were taken to our swim up room which was perfect. Every afternoon we relaxed in the pool prior to getting ready for dinner. The resort was gorgeous and the staff was so personable. We never had an issue getting chairs in the shade. We aren't people who sit around the pool all day, so we didn't go early morning to reserve chairs so we were surprised when we found 2 everyday. The snorkeling is GREAT right on the beach at the resort (bring your own snorkel gear...they do not lend it out because of the liability). We snorkeled around the pier (center of the resort) and under / around the over the water bungalows. There is so much to see.....beautiful fish, lobsters, lion fish, etc. Do the night snorkeling. It is not scary like you would think. The guys at water sports talked us into it and we said if we had done it earlier in the week, we would have done it twice. We saw 2 big sting rays, ton of cool fish, lobsters, etc. It was so worth $35 per person. We hiked Pigeon Island which is right beside the resort. You can get there by walking down the beach towards Gordan's then cross the parking lot. It was only $8 per person to get in. It is very safe. We hiked both mountains which have very clear, wide path. The views are breath taking! Snorkeling on Pigeon Island beach was awesome too. We did the Segway tour which was way more fun than what we ever expected. Our tour guide, King, was so informative and fun. The views on that tour were amazing. The sunset tour....it started off very nice and quiet. We saw a sea turtle surface which was very cool. Then the rain came and it came hard. That's when the party started. Everyone had a GREAT time. The food at the resort was very good. Our favorite was Gordon;s, Appetizer - crab cakes Entree - steak and lobster. We ate there twice! Check out process was easy and organized. I just can't say enough about this resort. We will be back!
We went to St Lucia and stayed at the Sandals Grande for our Honeymoon. Our visit was amazing and we already booked a trip back for next year. I can't say enough about the employees and the St Lucian people in general, they were all wonderful and friendly people. A special shout out to our new friend Delia Mc Farlane at the Sandals Grande!!!
