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.
Overall service offered was over and beyond expectations. I want to single out Noel Antoine in this regard. There's not a very wide range of activities available unfortunately, but guests do have free access to the other Sandals Resorts on the island which offer a broader range of activities.Of course, it would be remiss of me not to mention the cuisine... this was by far, the most enjoyable experience for me.. ah loved it!I really did enjoy every moment on property and I'd gladly recommend it to anyone. Especially couples.
really lovely, only a couple of things let it down for me, would be nice if there was more to do in the evening also the spa treatments are really expensive. trips are really good felt looked after and safe. staff , food, gardens excellent.
My husband & I recently stayed at the Halcyon Resort for our honeymoon(we received no extra perks for it being our honeymoon BTW) and I will start off by staying that the staff was highly professional, attentive and friendly.Please let me also inform you that the airport is an hour and 20 minutes from the resort. Although the resort was neatly maintained and currently undergoing construction, there are a few things the hotel can keep in mind to update and improve their resort as well. CONS:1st Keep umbrella's in guest's room. 2nd Have ALL food covered in the buffet during breakfast; Including ketchup, cheeses, sweets. Nearly every breakfast time I found flies just sitting on the foods.3rd Improve your food. We expected better quality food from the Caribbean. Definitely disappointed in this aspect. 4th The beach water off the resort is NOT blue like google and the sandals commercials portray.5th music wasn't the greatest at the "fun pool"PROS: Great customer serviceWet & Wild excursion & Snuba was AWESOME! Worth Every pennyClean roomsgood alcoholic beverageswide range of guest ages
The moment we got off the shuttle, we were treated incredibly well! The butlers, management, chefs, reception staff were attentive to our needs and handled any issues right away! They upgraded our room for free to the newest remodeled Butler Suites. Our butlers Yves, Divina, and Claudia were absolutely wonderful! The beach was a little murky but from what I understand Hurricane Matthew caused a bit of trouble there, so that was expected. Also, I heard that the beach waters are murkier certain times of the year and clearer at other times. So you cant really blame the hotel or staff for Mother Nature. They can't control the weather! Bottom line my wife and I enjoyed ourselves during our stay, and we highly reccommend staying there to anyone!
Personally this was a first in that I had not done an all inclusive holiday before, and after a week at Halcyon Beach I will not be in a hurry to do another one. There are definitely some good things about the resort. The staff are for the most part really nice and helpful and the rooms are also nice. But against that the food was at best average. There is plenty of choice but it just did not seem to be of a very high quality. At breakfast time birds were flying into where breakfast was being eaten and plonking themselves in the middle of various breakfast items and pecking away at what was going to be eaten by unsuspecting breakfast goers. Because some of the food was uncovered there was also flies etc in various items whenever I went up to see what to have. For an upmarket resort late night entertainment seemed to consist of two pool tables and not much else. There was a show put on one night which consisted of limbo dancing which was quite entertaining but which was then slightly ruined by trying to force people to participate in a bit of dancing afterwards when it was clear most people just wanted to sit and relax enjoying their glass of wine. Another night there was a karaoke night held and it is only in the past few days that my ears have stopped bleeding from the sounds that came out of peoples mouths that night.Their is no doubt that there is a degree of value for money on this type of holiday but there was a slight feel of club 18 - 30 about it with the "noisy" pool blasting out rubbish music most days and trying to fill the daylight hours with things like bingo.Whist that might seem a bit harsh , as I said previously the staff are lovely.
