Our Opinion

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.


Overview
St. Lucia's intimate beach resort boasts quaint accommodations, restaurants and entertainment. With tastefully decorated rooms scattered over 22 acres, the low-key Sandals Halcyon Beach Resorts has a wonderful Caribbean charm. Relish in swim-up bars and three specialty restaurants. The tropical foliage hugging the buildings is gorgeous and all the land and water sports you could wish for are included.

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

Swooning + Honeymooning ... even through Irma

We had an absolutely amazing time on our honeymoon at Sandals. We went all out and had Butler Elite service and our own private pool. Service was excellent, the food even better ... the local foods prepared were wonderful (I actually am trying to find recipes from the Sandals staff for a few items). IVES, our primary butler was fantastic - he was always available, courteous and had an infectious smile. While we probably wouldn't necessarily need butler service on every vacation, it was worth it for our honeymoon - they made all of our reservations for the week, assisted us with spa appointments, excursions, turndown service and even offered to unpack us and escort us to our meals. And we also got a special cooler delivered to the pool or beach with Piton beer and waters each day.The receptions in the concierge lounge were fun!Dania and Cyndy at Red Line Spa were SUPERB. Another stand out associate was JESSE MODESTE. I mean - they need to clone her! She assisted us with booking another vacation through their loyalty program and also gave us a lot of insight into the island, etc. When we found ourselves in distress trying to depart for home, she assisted us in locating an alternate hotel when other managers were not available to assist us. One item to note: there are NO ATMs on any of the Sandals properties - you typically need to go to a bank or supermarket to take our Eastern Caribbean currency. Just an FYI.The only downside at the resort was that as we were trying to figure out alternate travel plans as our flights were cancelled 3 times out of St. Lucia because of Hurricane Irma, all of the managers on property were in a "2 hour meeting", which apparently could not be disturbed. We had to check out of our room (understandable for arrivals), not knowing if we were going to extend our stay or move on ... as well as try to find alternate flight options. We asked several times at the front desk for them to please grab a manager so that we can figure out our plan. We were told we had to wait until they were finished with their meeting at 11am before anything could be accomplished. I work in the hospitality industry, and I have never stayed in a meeting when a guest needed resolution to an issue, especially when it was a distressed time. Disappointing, but our overall stay was not necessarily impacted by this. I would recommend to the staff to ensure that the guests always come first, especially when there are issues that impact their travel. The "distress rate" was Sandals-wide and it wasn't necessarily a hugely discounted rate.Again, wonderful staff overall .... great pool activities ...delicious food ... I always felt safe and well taken care of at Sandals. And the option to visit La Toc and Grande was really great, as well. We are looking forward to our one year anniversary trip next year! THANK YOU ALL!PS the visiting cats are also pretty sweet, and I don't even love cats!

Best vacation

Mickey the bartender at this resort was outstanding. I've worked and hired hundreds of people in the night life industry for over a decade and never crossed a person with his dedication in making sure customers are happy. Was the best week of my life all do to him. He always had a smile and made sure customers had a bigger smile. This guy is so well established with a type a personality for the job. He should be at a higher status than a bartender. Is the face of sandals and makes people want to come back for a memory of a lifetime. Out of all the people at the resort this is the person that you wanted to see every night for a good time and Input on how to best enjoy your vacation. Brings nothing but smiles and tears of laughter. The staff all around was excellent between him and Dillan. Must go to destination. Wouldn't have a trip of a life time without a personality like his!

Relaxing break

Stayed here for a week at the end of August 2017. Beautiful place with lovely friendly staff. Great choice of restaurants for evening meals but I found the breakfasts and lunches quite limited. There's a free shuttle bus to the 2 neighbouring Sandals resorts where you can use the facilities and eat at their restaurants so overall a great choice of restaurants. My favourites were Bombay at the Grande and the French restaurant at La toc. Also a great BBQ at Bayside at Halcyon Beach. We spent most of our time at the quieter pool and there was never a issue getting a sunbed at any time. The hotel seemed very quiet - possibly due to the refurbishment. A few negatives - Kelly's Dockside restaurant was closed for refurbishment and although the menu was available at Bayside restaurant it was disappointing that we couldn't eat there as it was in a fabulous location at the end of a short pier. There was also some minor disruption near the water sports centre where some rooms were being refurbished. As previously mentioned, breakfast and lunch were limited and although you could go to one of the other Sandals hotels, the times of the shuttle buses didn't always fit in with the timings of the restaurant e.g. If we'd wanted an a la carte breakfast we would have had to leave the hotel at 7.15am. The hotel could also do with putting some fans in the lobby area. A special mention to Agnes at the bar at the quiet pool - she was great.We had a great time and love Sandals hotels. We'll definitely be back to either this or another resort.
