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.
This resort is so beautiful! We have been to several Sandals resorts and this resort tops all the rest so far. The food is ok but the resort is amazing! Can't say enough about it. Gordon's restaurant on the pier is just ok. If you can't get reservations, don't sweat it. You can get the same dinner at another restaurant that doesn't require reservations. I have to mention we stayed at LaToc one night, don't bother. These 2 resorts are night and day. Sandals Grande is the place to be, you will not regret it.
We were extremely pleased with our stay. The service was exceptional and every staff was more than friendly and accommodating. The food was amazing and the entertainment was great! There was always something to see or do or eat!!
We have just returned from our first vacation to SGSL. It was our seventh to a Sandals/Beaches property. Here is a quick review of our experience.RoomWe had a Caribbean Beachfront one bedroom Butler Suite in the Rodney Bay building on the 3rd floor. The room was beautiful, boasting two washrooms and a super big patio. We were next to the construction of the over the water bungalows, but the noise was minimal. My issue with this building was the smell in the hallways. It either smelled like rotten fish or smelly feet three of the seven days we were there.FoodBreakfast at the buffet and Toscaninis was fine. Lunch was also very good, especially at Barefoot by the Sea. For supper, we went to Gordons, Bombay, Barefoot by the Sea, Bayside and Kimonos. Food was great at all these places. The beach party was so-so...not much variety. I would not do it again. My biggest disappointment was the return guest dinner. We were seated like sardines at this huge table in the centre. My spoon was literally on the edge of the table. To make matters worse, we were served cold, and i do mean cold, over cooked plain chicken. Not a meal for your valued customers that keep coming back. Of all the return guest dinners, this one was the worst by a mile. Go have supper somewhere else and skip this altogether.BeachThe beach was amazing, and the water even better. We we seated in the centre of the beach for the first two days, but it was quite noisy, especially a young vendor on the beach talking loudly all the time to young couples he befriended and using inappropriate language. We asked to go to the the left, close to the construction, and that was perfect. More space, and comfortable wooden loungers instead of the uncomfortable plastic ones.The service on the beach is quite impressive, the best I have seen in all the resorts I have visited. We had butler service, but were asked regularly if we wanted anything to drink.GroundsThe resort itself is well maintained. It is clean, especially the washrooms. Butler serviceOur butlers were Malaika and Benedict. Malaika is amazing, what a bubbly, energetic woman. Unfortunately, she was only with us for 4 of the 7 days, and we had replacement butlers. Benedict was alright, but not as outgoing. What i found lacking is the fact that I did mention we were celebrating my husband's birthday, and nothing special was done, unlike the other resorts we have visited. They also did the decorated tub with flowers and bubble bath only once, and that was on our last evening. Other butlers have always done it twice, and usually around the 2nd and 5th night. And unlike other resorts, none of our diner tables was decorated with flowers. Is this new?OverallIt was a great week. Would I return? Definitely.
We had an amazing time in St Lucia. Our first all inclusive vacation. We will definitely will make this trip again. The room was in a great location just 65 steps from the main pool. Food and entertainment was amazing. All employees were always nice helpful and made our experience a memorable one
Having been to a few Couples, Secrets, and Palace resorts, this resort was below our expectations. Room was size and amenities equivalent to regular double tree hotel room style room (small, dated). Hotel is dated and has not been kept up (broken light fixtures in hallway, for example). Marketing for rooms is misleading: ocean front is actually the back of the hotel by the street. Beachfront is the front side where the pools are located. Awoken daily by loud alarm on a water pump (2 hour buzzing from 6-8 am) in our 4th floor ocean "front" room. Particularly unimpressed as our room was "club level". Can't imagine what regular rooms look like.After voicing concerns with management, they were more than accommodating. Daily calls from general manager, expressing desire to improve our stay. Management went above and beyond to improve our impression of the resort. Birthday surprise from Sandals was very sweet. Kindness and personalized service with staff was great and offset impression of dated resort. These interactions made the stay pleasant.If this is your first resort experience, you will be pleased. If you have stayed at other resorts, you may be disappointed. Food was good, not great or exceptional. Bombay Club - if you like Indian food - was best restaurant we tried. (Only two we could not fit in were Soy and Toscanini). Spotty wifi. Room service ends at 10 p.m. and not available in regular, non club level rooms.Overall, staff and service made the stay worthwhile. Overpriced, small room, outdated.
