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

Honeymoon

My husband and I stayed at Sandals Halcyon Beach Resort for our honeymoon and we had the time of our lives. There are no words to describe how lovely the people that work there are. They were ALL super friendly, they knew us by name, and they knew I needed my rum punch every day :) I wish I remembered everyone's name, but I just want to say they were all amazing. I felt like I had known them for awhile. The food there was delicious, the drinks were great, and the activities were so much fun. We met several lovely couples and made new friends. I want to give the following people a shout out: Dania, Cyndi, Chris, Maverick, Sharlene, Sameera, Jake (with zip lining), Ricky, Chewy, Dawn. Actually I want to give everyone a shout out for being so great, but like I said I don't remember everyone's name. I highly recommend Halcyon to EVERYONE. I can't wait to go back.

Wedding/vacation

I promise my review will have you packed by the weekend. First: bug repellent, I took repel mosquito wipes, your I gonna need it. Second: mosquito repellent. Ok I now that we have sprayed or wiped ourselves down for mosquitoes, let's get started. We kept calling our room, home. That is what we felt here. Very low key yet great social experience. We are past the party scene age so take as you will. If you have never been out of your homeland, this place is a great start. The staff either knew our names or what room we were in. Everyone spoke passing by, I felt as I needed to greet the other vacationers. ,Oh wait that is just me, I do that anyways. I met some amazing people here and had a great alone/couples/friends/meet new people time here. I can name most if not all the crew I encountered here, because they made us feel like no one but is were here...

The staff are 5 star, the complex is a 4

We had a lovely 10 days at the Halcyon Beach and as the title states; the excellent staff make what I'd call more like a 4-star complex into a 5-star. It also helps that 99% of he other guests were mostly nice people too. If you want to see 5 star places, the neighbouring Sandals resorts (La Toc and the Grande) are what you'd see in the glossy adverts. .. But there lies the secret to the Halcyon; with hundreds less residents than the others, it's ideal to relax in a quiet setting which isn't over populated (at all!!) Very private, peaceful and nice. The evenings at the Halcyon is what makes it a 4 star (my opinion) with the poor food. This can be remedied by taking the free transfer to one of the other Sandals! (Essential for us) I'd never water ski'd or wake boarded before the holiday and I didn't particularly want to at first but two guys who were incredible were SIMEONO and YOHANNE. Thanks to the two mentioned guys, I'm pretty good now - all down to them taking their job so personally and wanting to teach. They're an absolute testament to Sandals - exceptional employees.Tips if you're going there soon:1. Eat in the evening at one of the other Sandals (Gordon's at the Grande is excellent. We also liked Bombay and La Toc)2. Eat lunch at the bistro on the beach (we loved lunch there as opposed to the buffet)3. Request a room in block 4 which is nearer to the sea. We preferred upstairs by far, for more light and privacy than any of the ground floor rooms. 4. Book your evening restaurants in advance. All in all, good place, you'll have a nice holiday. Don't expect absolute glitz and glamour. It's more beach side rustic, but very peaceful.

Honeymoon

My husband and I did our first discover scuba course when we were staying at the sandals Halycon. Our experience with Our instructor Lum was extremely helpful and he gave us a confidences when we went out to scuba dive. He taught us a few tips and tricks and made sure we were relaxed and prepared before going out into the open water. He was very relatable and made us all look forward to the next time we would be diving. We were in a small group of 5 and we all enjoyed the experience so much that each one of us went on the get PADI certified. I would defiantly recommend requesting Lum as your dive master where you are a veteran or new to diving. We were able to dive at a variety of sites and say multiple eels, octopus, trunkfish, lionfish, butterfly fish and trumpet fish, lobsters and many more not to mention the coral was beautiful!
