Well, this place exceeded all our expectations! This was our first trip to a Sandals resort and to St Lucia and it didn't disappoint. Everything was perfect! As with any hotel, it is only as good as the staff and they were exceptional. The site has something for everyone, a quiet end for those who want peace to read a book and a noisy end for those who want a lively atmosphere. Whichever end we were at, we were constantly asked if we wanted any drinks, there are numerous pools with a constant supply of towels and while we went during a busy period and many people got up early to reserve their favourite sunlounger, there were plenty of them! All the rooms are the same, its just the outlook which is extra! The rooms are cleaned to a high standard and the minibar is constantly restocked (and free!). The only issue we had was that the 4 poster bed was a little on the high side and with my wife being 5' 4", she had difficulty getting into and out of bed; this was solved by the staff and she was given a step! All watersports are included including diving and water skiing (except jetskis which are $60 for 30 minutes). All the food in the restaurants was excellent (several restaurants had to be booked in advance so do that as soon as you arrive in the resort). It was varied, tasty, hot (although the food in Bombay could have been a little hotter and service a little quicker although this was probably down to a lack of staff on the night). The staff couldn't do enough for us. There was entertainment every night which again was excellent, they have 2 tennis courts (acrylic surface) which were not used that much and the grounds were immaculate, not a leaf out of place! If you decide to go to this resort, you will not be disappointed! Read less

We celebrated our 5th anniversary by returning to beautiful St. Lucia and booked one of the 9 overwater bungalows at the Grande.

We celebrated our 5th anniversary by returning to beautiful St. Lucia and booked one of the 9 overwater bungalows at the Grande. The room is beautiful and big, but the outdoor deck area is simply the best. The pictures online barely do them justice, but you also get the pleasure of working with the amazing butler staff. Spending our week with Keicher, Kersharma, and Tamara was amazing from start to finish. They somehow seemed to know exactly what we wanted/needed even before we did! Cocktails would arrive, snacks would be waiting, our favorite pool spot would be reserved... and more importantly, they were just lovely people to be around! As for the overall resort, the views are amazing and a huge selling feature for us. The 1.5 hour drive from the airport isn't ideal, but necessary to get to the nicer beaches and frankly once you are greeted warmly, you quickly forget the winding roads that got you there. The restaurants are good with fairly diverse options and the pool bar is a very popular spot all day long. The resort staff makes every day fun... saying hello at every pass, never hesitating to start a dance party, and making sure you have everything you need. Read less

After reading some of the previous reviews, We were a little hesitant about going to St. Lucia and the Sandals resort. We have visited many resorts in many countries and to this day None have compared to the Sandals Grande St. Lucian. Upon arrrival we were greeted by a car and driven to the resort. The Driver was excellent! He offered drinks and was knowledgeable of everything happening on the island he made several stops for pictures and drinks as we made our way to the resort. Once at the resort we met our Butler and from that point the Great service did not stop. The room was unbelievable and the resort had everything you could ask for. We ate in almost all of the restaurants and each were very good and each had great service. The resort was spotless and the employees were extremely friendly and helpful in every possible way. The resort has many pools and different areas to offer, and not to mention the beautiful beach and many activities. We had the honor of having a Rondoval Suite with Butler service and we could not have met better people. Our butlers made our trip the trip of a lifetime with friendliness and service that was beyond belief, Thank you guys, we will be back! Sandals you have great employees in St Lucia and we are currently trying to rebook. Read less

Disappointed to see that despite Sandals having their name plastered all over anti litter signs around the area there was considerable litter outside the main entrance. Along the access roads to the hotel there was even more. Sandals should spend some of their profit earned using the resources of St Lucia to clean the streets up. It's not enough to pay lip service to protecting our environment. An hour a week of 1 person would make a considerable difference. As it is the approach to the resort is a disgrace and doesn't support the idyll that Sandals try to portray and charge a pretty penny for. Read less
