We just returned from a great 10-night vacation at Sandals Grande St Lucian. The property is level and makes for getting around easily. It is very pretty and well maintained with great vistas and sunsets. Weather was great other than a passing shower, although we were told it was abnormally windy (which actually was pleasant!). Overall, St. Lucian locals are very warm and welcoming. Staff were all very friendly and we wanted to highlight a few in particular: • Hygina and Kashima – Loyalty Desk • Danette and Daisy - Toscanini’s and Mariner’s • Damian – waiter at Kimono’s • Prisca and Junior – Bayside omelette station • Lisa – hostess at Toscanini’s • Ted – host at Gordon’s and Soy • LaToya/Gregory/Lance – Gordon’s • Jasmine – housekeeper • Chad and Junior – water sports desk. They each took us out on a very relaxing one-hour Hobie Cat ride which was very nice. • Nyah – playmaker • Talia – front desk • There may have been others to point out - there were so many standouts and it was hard to keep track of all the names and their locations! A few miscellaneous items: • Restaurants overall were quite good. • We went twice on a great sunset sail from Castries on Saturday evening (arranged through the Sandals tour desk). There was a live saxophone player (Antonio Herman was his name!) which was very nice. • We also walked over to nearby Pigeon Island for $8 per person and the views were great. • We also visited Sandals Halcyon and La Toc. There is a lot of traffic getting to and from but it was nice to visit them. A few negatives: • The pools were quite cool for being so far south. Not many people were even in them due to this. • There was also a lot of late-night noise due to locals having parties nearby on the weekend nights - the “noise” was actually EXTREMELY loud local “music” with booming bass that did take away from the vacation experience late at night. This would last until 2 or 3 am, which is not acceptable. We are told there is no noise ordinance prior to that hour. • The ride from the airport is quite rigorous with a lot of hills and hairpin turns and is about 1 ¾ hours with traffic (a little shorter on Sundays when traffic is lighter). • Vendors on the beach proper near the ocean were trying to sell tour excursions and some wares, etc. - they were basically OK and the beach felt very safe, but it was a little bit annoying to have to deal with.

The facility was amazing. Clean. current, attempts to cater to everyone. The people were incredibly friendly as in these last 5 months we have been to 6 southern trips and by far Sandals had the best personnel. The are accommodating, kind, friendly and super helpful. Cons: We are foodies and wine people. We love fish and everything was over cooked. The wine and even Vodka was under the low line booze until we got to the over the water bungalow which they had at least Grey Goose but to be fair about the wine, the island doesn't have the higher end brands. Gym was clean and the only place to get paper cups. The need more of a selection of fruit as we like our berries and mangos. Read less

As usual, we had a wonderful Stay at the St. Lucian Grande. The Select members dinner was spectacular. It was great to see Santa Claus and his Elves parading down the beach on Christmas. Highly recommend this resort.
