Sandals Halcyon Beach Visited on May 2018

St. Lucia was such a beautiful place to be married, the staff and wedding team was wonderful, we can't thank Shandulla, Dilan, Gibson, Tayo and Nurcia for helping with our beach wedding and especially Lana whom took the most beautiful pictures that we could ask for. St. Lucia will be part of our hearts and we can't wait to come back in for our second anniversary.

Sandals Halcyon Beach Visited on October 2015

We recently celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at the Halcyon Beach resort in Saint Lucia. It was EXACTLY what we were looking for! The accommodations at the Halcyon were excellent, the grounds immaculate, the food fantastic, and the staff was exceptional. We opted for the helicopter transfer (my wife gets motion sickness when driving) and the views were worth the price of admission! From the minute we arrived on the grounds we were pampered. From the check-in glass of champagne and cold towel (it was HOT) to the bartenders, watersports staff and service personnel, we were always greeted with a warm smile. Whenever we asked for anything the response was "No Worries, No Problem". We loved taking the Hobie Cat's out on the sea! I took advantage of the scuba training and went on 1 dive. We only did one excursion and would recommend the Joe Knows tour (land & sea). The guides were entertaining and the activities were worth it. The lunch was very good and the views of the Pitons was breath taking. We especially enjoyed the snorkeling. The slow boat ride home (music and rum punch) was "entertaining." We got to meet a bunch of other couples that we ran into throughout the week. Halcyon is a much quieter resort than the Grand or La Toc. If your looking for lots of activities and a big social atmosphere than I'd recommend one of the other resorts. If you're looking for a quiet place to relax with your sweetheart than the Halcyon is the place for you! The food was really good and we dined at Kelly's twice and Mario's twice. Kimino's was a unique experience that you should definitely reserve when you arrive (requires reservations). Be sure to order the "Bob Marley" while at the Halcyon (you can't get it at the other resorts). We took day trips to the Grand and La Toc and although their pools were awesome, they were much more crowded and the staff didn't seem quite as friendly as at the Halcyon. Plus, you're kinda living out of a day-bag you packed and are limited to the shuttles that leave for your resort about every two hours so you have to plan ahead to know when it's time to leave to get back for dinner (since your in your swim suite and can't really change easily into evening attire). We hiked up Pigeon Island ($7 USD) which was a nice break. I've never had a bad experience with Sandals and we booked our next years stay.

Sandals Halcyon Beach Visited on June 2010

We spent our honeymoon at the Halcyon Beach in St. Lucia. The accommodations were absolutely beautiful. The room was great, we had a fabulous view of the ocean, the beach was incredible, and the staff couldn't have been more lovely. It was a truly magical honeymoon. We are ready to come back! In fact, we're already picking dates! It was amazing. Thank you so much Sandals. It was a perfect honeymoon- Dr. and Mrs. Vicente Rodriguez

Sandals Press Reviews

"In doing what we ought, we deserve no praise," so states a Latin proverb. We are truly humbled by the plethora of praise we have received from such varied and prestigious sources, from all over the world, but feel compelled to say that we feel we are only doing what should be done for our guests – the very best! Be assured that all this praise will only serve to make all of us at Sandals strive harder to find more and better ways to give our guests the very best holiday experience on the planet.

Travel Girl

"Eating light, helthy fare is easier than expected, owing to whitehouse's seemingly health-concious, more discerning clientele, many of whom opt for upgraded butler-service rooms and top floor suites." "What sets the new Sandals South Coast resort apart from the rest of the couples-only, all inclusive Caribbean mega resorts is the feeling that you are removed from the rest of the world.

Bride's Magazine

"Grapiest all-inclusive...Sandals Resorts...Even if you're not an oenophile, you'll appreciate that Sandals now presents four house wince, which can be paired with each course...Best of all, the top staffers completed training in Napa, so they know their Pinots from their Syrahs."
