Sandals Halcyon Beach
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
The Sandals Halcyon Beach is smaller and more quaint that the other two Sandals resorts in St. Lucia. This resort provides laid-back elegance with rooms set amongst beautiful lush green gardens. The Halcyon Beach is the perfect place for couples to just kick back and relax. when you want a little more activities, guest can always use the facilities of the Sandal Regency La Toc and Sandals Grande St. Lucian, both of which are only a few minutes away and include transfers.
This is a nice, compact property that never felt crowded -- always plenty of space, quiet (no children --hurrah!), slightly older and quieter crowd (though they could party when they had to), seldom much of a wait for restaurant seating, nice bar area. Nighttime entertainment could have been better (don't need a C & W singer or oldies rock night in the Caribbean).Our room was great -- ocean front, roomy enough, small "porch" sitting area in front, housekeeping staff did a good job. Grounds were well kept and attractive.Restaurants: For dinner, Mario's Italian restaurant and Kelley's were the best for us, the Bayside not so much. My wife liked the sushi bar. Lunch and breakfast, the Bayside was fine. The bistro was okay for lunch, not very good late night.Guest services (tours, etc.) were good, but I'd recommend hiring a private driver for airport transportation -- not as crowded, probably faster. Also look into private tours, though Sandals doesn't like this. We felt like we got closer to the action and to actual Saint Lucian life this way. You have to get out of the resort compound to really appreciate what Saint Lucia has to offer.All in all, a pleasant vacation stay that left us relaxed and interested in returning.
Very delighted with our 10 day stay at Sandals Halcyon in St Lucia, W.I. Beautiful grounds and beach, friendly and helpful staff, wonderful food and drinks, quite afternoons by the Paradise pool. Just lovely! We felt very pampered from the time we landed until departure. Ground transportation from/to the airport was easy and efficient. Enjoyed the Northern Historical tour and the Soufriere Adventure Cruise but most of the time just relaxing. Our first time at a Sandals Resort and they are a first class resort. Will go again.
I was staying at Sandals La Toc which I love, but wanted to see Halcyon as a few years ago I was supposed to go there but had to cancel. First impressions were that this resort was a little "tired" in comparison to the lavish La Toc - but this was not an acurate impression . Within about 20 minutes I had fallen in love with this smaller resort. The atmosphere was more of a private beach club as opposed to a hotel/resort. The staff are always great at Sandals , but Halcyon just had a really nice , relaxed and super friendly feel to it. The playmakers worked super hard to entertain and amuse all the guests, there was a great atmosphere around the main pool, and the sun beds all had mattresses which was not the case at the other resort ( several did have but not all) The swim up pool bar was great and Jonathon had the biggest most welcoming smile and lovely personality as he prepared some if the nicest cocktails I have tried.Lunch at bayside was a great experience, lots of lovely food options, nice setting and great service - especially from Ricky-thank you for being so attentive.We wondered around and the resort is very attractive with low level rooms, some with beach view and tranquility tubs, others with lovely garden views.eather walk out with small garden area or balcony -only 2 floors high.2 pools, main one and a quieter one. Several fiepits for evening relaxing under the stars the fabulous red lane spa and nice beach with floating sea sun beds and several water sport options.I think this resort would appeal to people wanting to relax rather than full on party, with its shabby chic , beach club vibe it seems like a more chilled resort than the others on the island, but still has plenty to keep you entertained. It is also home to Kelly's restaurant on i'ts own pier with (I am told) some if the best fish dishes anywhere on the island.As always you have shuttles to the other two resorts -take care checking the timetable - we got on a bus an hour early and ended up doing a full circuit before getting back to la Toc ( was on minibus for over an hour for what should have been a 15 minute trip this was ( totally our mistake)We loved it here so spent two days enjoying this little gem of a resort with all the luxury inclusions that Sandals is famous for.I hope to return to St Lucia really soon and Halcyon will be the resort I go to next time.
Our trip was for our 20th anniversary. This place was peaceful and beautiful. The staff goes above and beyond to make your stay wonderful. The only real downfall is the real lack of evening entertainment. They tried but it wasn't very good. We loved our tours-ziplining and the buggy/volcano tour. I would recommend a club level room as it comes with a fridge that is stocked daily. The club sandals staff will also help you organize your week and make reservations for you. We have already booked another trip
Sandals Halcyon is a little bit of paradise. My husband and I have stayed here 3 times and each time was better than the one before. Our room was a walkout room with a viewof the gardens. The staff couldn't have been nicer. A special shout out to the entertainment staff TweetieJ and Dumplyn they were awesome.
