Our Opinion

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.


Overview
Nestled on a cape between the stunning clear blue waters of the Caribbean Sea and tranquil Rodney Bay, Sandals Grande St. Lucian Spa & Beach Resort is a fabulous romantic retreat. The latest gem in the prestigious Sandals Resorts chain is a meticulously manicured beachfront property offering a lush tropical setting replete with all the amenities Sandals is known for.

Location: Directly on the beach, 1h 40-minute drive from Hewanorra International Airport and 10-minute drive from Vigie Airport Castries.

Had a great holiday

The place is great the food was great the rooms were great the views were spectacular the staff were always friendly and helpful.The only negative I would say is that there is a resort bus that comes from the other hotels everyday so around 9am the place gets packed and I mean packed to the point where you can’t get a sun bed by the pool.... now considering you pay more to stay at this hotel then any of the other hotels it is a bit annoying and that’s the only downside.

Sandals Grande St. Lucian Spa & Beach Resort

Great resort, visited in March of the previous year and we were very impressed by this Sandals Resort. This was my first experience staying at the Sandals brand. We did the helicopter transfer from the airport to Sandals which worked out well. Amazing scenery and views flying to the resort. Staff was helpful during check in and throughout entire stay. Butler service was a great perk. They were helpful in making dinner reservations as needed, as well as providing excellent pool/beach service during the day. Good selection of restaurants, food was fine overall with enough options to keep us satisfied. The beach here is great, clean water and very calm. We spent most of our time at the beach and in the water. Pools are lovely, nicely landscaped and well kept. Main pool during our stay would tend to get crowded and louder as day went on. There were other pool areas available if you wanted quieter spot. Plenty of chairs by pools and on beach available, as well as areas with shade and umbrellas. Gym was dated and could use an upgrade, but rest of resort was impressive.

We had a great honeymoon!

It was our first time at a Sandals resort and we were pleased with the service we received. All the staff we encountered were very friendly. The grounds were well kept and beautiful. Being on our honeymoon, we wanted a beautiful tropical island to enjoy and St Lucia did not disappoint. Some days we sat by the center pool, some days on the beach and you can even find quiet areas around other pools to relax. We ate at a different restaurant each night and enjoyed all our meals. For lunch you can just walk to one of the outdoor restaurants from the pool or beach. If you know how to sail take one of the hobie cats out or have one of the crew take you out around the bay. The water is so calm but the breezes keep you moving. We are glad we picked Sandals Grande St Lucian for our honeymoon!

Honeymoon--Very Disappointed

We booked the Sandals Grande based according to other fellow honeymooners and their rave reviews. When we arrived I noticed other groups had been given glasses of champagne to welcome them to the resort. Our group that we checked in with did not receive this. Next, we booked and paid extra for the honeymoon walk-out suite-- it is no different from any other basic room and you receive nothing extra for it. Also, if you do not pay extra for club sandals you do not get room service. We had friends who booked club sandals and they informed us that they got room service but the menu was limited and ended at ten pm. As honeymooners, we expected to be treated as such. The resort did nothing extra/special to help us celebrate. We were told by many others that they would leave surprises in your room to help you celebrate your special occasion. We received NOTHING! We met several couples while there who were not there celebrating anything and had not informed the resort they were celebrating and they still received champagne and flowers in their room. It was very disappointing because you want to feel special and that did not happen AT ALL! I will inform those who are staying there to book the helicopter ride to and from the hotel because it can be a two-hour drive that makes you feel awful. (made that mistake coming to the resort from the airport) I do highly recommend booking the JJs boat tour through the resort because that excursion made our trip. The food is nothing to get excited over and highly suggest bringing snacks with you in case you get hungry. My husband and I both got sick from food two separate nights. There is zero wait staff at the pool like advertised so you do have to go get your own drinks and you are unable to order food from the pool. We had high expectations for the amount of money spent on this trip and we could have gone somewhere much nicer for half the price. If you have the money and want to check this place out I highly suggest hiring the butler, staying in a villa and going that route. You will have much more enjoyable experience.

Not what we expected

Unless you golf or snorkel not worth the money they adverse an English pub with Guineas on tap all they have is some local cap and Heineken not very British they claim superior chefs yet the deserts are from frozen lobby bar and pub don't open till 5pm it's a long walk to the poolside pub needs more bars also not much on the entertainment side ride from airport is a joke what else we went into the town of Castile nothing but poverty everywhere really sad a when you see all the Cliffside villas andD million dollar yatchs and lastly qqpls speak with your butlers and tell them to lose the attitude some were lazy and outright disrespectful especially on the lady Sandals yacht tour do yourself a favour and book club level Secrets in Mexico resorts are modern and they know how to service clients
