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.
My husband and I arrived early afternoon on the 11th November to a wonderful friendly reception first having survived the hour bus transfer We were shown to our room by Kelly which was upgraded for us who was really lovely and who we saw many times during the week we were in 139 which is a beach bungalow which had a bit of a sea view it was beautifully decorated very clean and cool we had lots of fluffy towels bathrobes and toiletries the fridge was filled with lots of soft drinks and topped up every day Our room was looked after by Hyacinth who did a thorough job every day The resort is really well kept never any litter, all the staff except a few were very friendly and we made some lovely friends in their ranks I would like to mention a few Agnes at the quiet pool who makes excellent cocktails Kenosha who was incredible she was so happy and always had a smile she even made us up a cocktail to celebrate our 38th wedding Anniversary but who is leaving to return to another resort and who we will miss on our return visit next year ( yes we have already booked to return next year ) we ate in Kellys Dockside but were quite disappointed the menu is not very varied and only has 4 choices it was we felt lacking in atmosphere the waitress was not very interested in geling with us so we ate up and left We had a candlight dinner on the beach and that was really romantic our waiter was Bernie who was great and made us laugh and made the evening really special Staff came around with fresh coconuts for us to drink so refreshing 1We swam everyday and used the swim up bars which were friendly places to meet up with other couples We both enjoyed eating in the Bayside the staff we friendly the food very fresh and tasty for both Breakfast Lunch and DinnerWe ate in Kimonos which was and experience and Mario's which was always busy but many people had to be turned away even early evening so maybe reservations would be a good idea the food was great We also had lunch one day in the beach bistro which was ok but staff once again not so good We did not have time to try Soy but intend to do so next time I would definitely think tbat anyone thinking of booking this resort will not leave disappointed maybe like us you would have loved to stay longerThank you to everyone for a wonderful experience and see you again next year xxx
This was our 1st Sandals / Caribbean holiday and what a place to start off at. 1st thing that stands out here are the people. They are all so happy, friendly, always smiling, happy you are there and can't do enough for you. I could list every member of staff by name for something they did throughout our stay, but to name a few, Nathalie at Mario's was brilliant, always found us a table, always stopped to speak and remembered us from our very 1st visit. (including allergies we had!) Vercase was our server we had on our 1st visit too and she made our 2 week stay a brilliant one, by just being herself, looking after us, making us feel so special, taking time to speak every time we saw her (whether she was our server or not) and making us laugh. Casius was another server at Mario's, who never stopped smiling or laughing and gave us a great farewell on our last night, for which we will always be thankful. Tyrone was a water sports instructor / lifeguard and taught us to sail in minutes (which was our favourite water sport to do thereafter), always stopped to speak whenever we saw him and a truly great guy. ALL the gardeners deserve special awards for the state of the grounds, the hard work they put in is truly admirable and in the heat, but always said hello, were always smiling and always had time for a quick chat. Agnes at the paradise pool is a star in her own right and trust me when I say you will never go thirsty. The whole resort is smaller than the Grand and Le Toc, but we found it a million times better, we went to Le Toc to play golf and experience a different resort, but couldn't wait to leave and get back to Halcyon. We visited all of the restaurants (Except the sushi bar) and all were great, our favourite by a long way though was Mario's where we ate most evenings (For the staff and the food). We felt Kelly's dockside was a bit of a let down, stunning location and décor, but seemed strange that you have to book, yet its a relaxed dress code and not much choice on the menu, yet Mario's was turn up, but had a dress code. The swimming pools and sea were like bath water, however we both got stung by jelly fish and I still have a scar 2 weeks on, so be careful when swimming. We went on 2 tours, whale watching was a let down and over priced, Joe Knows was by far the best excursion we have ever been on and great value for money. Must ask for Chocolate Thunder (Best tour guide ever) and Lionel (best laugh ever), however both extremely knowledgeable about the island. Overall we had a fantastic time and would recommend Halcyon Beach without hesitation. Can't wait to go back to the Caribbean and maybe one day, back here!
I hate we didn't go sooner and stay longer!!! It's stunning!!! Here are my tips:1. let go! have fun! play the silly pool games, interact with the playmakers! You earn points for your participation and earn free money to spend on photos and gift shop!!! 2. take advatage of the complimentary photo shoot! They offer it free and they will get some amazing shots that you wouldn't otherwise see! No obligation to purchase, but you will find you want to! It's a great souvenir of your trip! 3. splurge on Club Sandals (concierge) level! It's worth every penny. I loved being able to just chill in the lounge! 4. DO AN EXCURSION! we did Wet and Wild via Island Routes and it was the most amazing thing I've every done! Worth every cent!!! 5. eat. eat. eat. Don't worry about calories, just enjoy!!!!!! (kelly's was eh for me, but the Soy sushi bar and Bayside French Bistro at night are my favorites! and the beach bar is perfect for a late night burger!!!!) GO! I can't wait to go back!!!!
All the staff at the Halcyon made our wedding & honeymoon amazing & very special. It was a very relaxed friendly hotel and nothing was too much trouble. The area is stunning & we went to some local restaurants to sample local food. The locals are lovely & a big mention has to go to our friend “Charlie the Rasta”. A big thank you to everyone for making our visit one to remember.
We were there to "Celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary" and "Re-Tie the Knot" Ceremony. It was a fabulous All Inclusive trip from beginning to end. Met some wonderful people, ate some fabulous food and had great FREE entertainment - like water skiing, canoeing and paddle boarding in the carribean. The service at the Halcyon Beach Resorts Restaurants was tremendous and very professionally done. Of all the Sandal Resorts in St. Lucia - I'd recommend Halcyon Beach Resort - The Staff made you feel right at home. The Re-Tie the Knot Ceremony was professionally done - from the Chaplain, Jim's Assistant and my Assistant as well - A+ to them all. The Photographer was super - he took 277 shots of the wedding and we had to narrow that down to the top 25 - so very hard. Very well worth it. Dinner that night at Kelly's was so magical - made us feel so special. You could shuttle from one to the other Resorts and free shuttle to and from the Airport. Our special recognition of "Melissa Joseph" - the very best of the best Front Desk People at the Halcyon Beach Resort - could not have asked for a better "Assistant". She took care of us from the beginning glass of Champagne and ice cold towel to the very end of our trip - Special Car and driver to the Airport. We will never forget her and all she did. We love you Melissa. Jim & Lenora Alexander
