With chaos & uncertainty all around, we opted to escape the gloom of the Uk for an all inclusive trip to St Lucia. This wasn’t our first visit to the Island, nor Sandals Grande, so we knew we’d be in good hands. For the doubters & nay-sayers, everyone visiting St Lucia has to provide a negative PCR test so there was no question about safety. The Island has very strict Covid protocols in place, as does Sandals. Upon arrival were greeted with genuine affection & whisked straight to the club lounge for a cocktail while our luggage was being transferred to our swim up room. There are many different types of accommodation so do your research. A review should be short so I will keep it brief and just say; if you can’t decide which Sandals to choose in St Lucia, opt for the Grande. The staff cannot do enough for you & make you feel like part of their Caribbean family. A special shout out to these guys who really went above and beyond to make our stay so very special. Club Lounge: Lance & Kerry Toscaninis: Lisa, Philip & Thomas Bayside: Julie, Nia, Marvin (aka) Eddie Murphy Gordon’s: Damian & Tad Beach drinks: Princess Pastry chef: Rosetta Head of Catering: Paul Bombay: Lucida Guest experience: Ivana The Main Man: Winston Thank you all for our treasured memories.

We just finished a two week vacation at St Lucia and had a wonderful time. Our Butlers (Giselle, Clynne and Amos) were the most amazing Butlers we have ever had. We also want to do a shout out to Pamala (restaurant manager) and Rosette (Executive Bakery Chef) for working together to coordinate a special dessert for us that is no longer available. Pamala learned we were looking for the dessert and went above and beyond her duties to determine how to grant our wish. Rosette created her own version of the dessert that was even more amazing than the original. Both of them spent time visiting with us and we were able to get to know these awesome Managers. Overall the staff was extremely friendly and very accommodating. The resort is beautiful and deserving of the name “Grande”. Read less

I cannot say enough wonderful things about our stay at the sandals grand resort. We begin our honeymoon the first two nights in the Pitons at Ladera resort. It was true bliss an amazing experience and totally different staying actually in the Pitons. I highly recommend staying at the Ladera as it’s a place there’s nowhere else in the world like it. It is true paradise. We wanted to also experience the beach so we stayed at Sandals. It has been beyond our expectations as this is been our first Sandals to ever stay. I’m usually not a big resort type of person but this has exceeded all my expectations and they have made it very intimate and personal. The staff has gone above and beyond to make all of our request happen including Marvin getting goat cheese for breakfast in the morning and special desserts. The food is out of this world truly five star and so many different choices. The alcohol is all top-notch everything about it is wonderful. Julie and Marvin in the mornings at breakfast have made our day. We love getting up to them. They have been so kind and going out of their way to give us their warm smile and hospitality. Marvin has make sure we have all the best food and Julie comes and gives her love and kindness. Everyone here is absolutely wonderful and cannot recommend it enough. If you decide to break up your trip I do recommend going to both Laderia and Sandals. True Bliss best honeymoon!!!! Read less
