We have been caught up with the Coronavirus situation while we was on property but I must say with all the uncertainty of everyone’s jobs we had first class service the club sandals staff was fantastic shout out to sheldon our housekeepers were fantastic jasmine was a pleasure to meet. The food was fantastic we got to try most not all of the restaurants because of the situation but we can be fussy but the service and food was fantastic everywhere. There are cats there are not a lot and I’d rather cats than rats! There are no problem at all. The people on the beach selling trips were very nice and had great deals. We went right around the island feeling very safe I would hope that whilst we are enjoying the luxury of sandals we remember that everyone has a job and each job is valued well done to all the staff for doing a fantastic job. The beach is incredible to swim in the pools are lovely to cool off in. We will definitely be back. Thankyou to winston for putting his heart and soul into the customers and the staff. Read less

We were so excited for our trip here after reading the reviews but left disappointed. We always love staying at all inclusives and had heard great things about this Sandals. 1) When we checked in, we insisted we could keep our suitcases (2 small carry ons) but they said they would keep them. We did not get our luggage until over an HOUR after getting our room. Every time we called they stated it was on it's way 2) Speaking of the room. After a long travel day (2+ hour car ride)- we arrived past 4pm. We were told our room was still not ready but that they would give us a tour of the property in the meantime. The tour was 1 minute and without warning, the host left us at the Jerk Shack to grab a bite and she would return. An hour later, she still had not. I went back to the front desk so I could at least change from my airplane clothes and saw many other people getting rooms. They stated they would check and our room was ready. I genuinely think they forgot about us. 3) After we finally got to get changed, we went to the bar to get drinks. Sandals boasts that they only serve premium liquor, right? However, I saw the bartender pouring some no name vodka into my drink. When I inquired why he wasn't using Titos or other premium vodka, he dramatically poured out our drinks and angrily told me "you must request that with your drink. Every resort has run of the mill alcohol." He repeated this again and was clearly angrily. If you stay here, check what liquor you're getting. 4) Even 3-4 star resorts I have stayed at (that were way better)- always had beach and pool side drink service. We saw one waitress taking drink orders throughout the whole resort. It wasn't until our 3rd day that we even got asked if we wanted a drink. If you want high end beachside service, you can rent a measly small cabana for $125 a day thats crammed in a row of cabanas on the rocky side of the beach. 5) Yes, the restaurants have yummy food. However, do yourself a favor and ask for photos of the buffet because that is your main option (besides an Italian restaurant) for breakfast. See photos attached. There were stray cats everywhere. The buffet was barely 2 rows and one omelette station. It was not unappetizing to eat at. There were no extra sanitation measures either. 6) They have zero option of when you can leave based on your flight. They told us we could take their shuttle that was leaving 5 (yes FIVE) hours prior to our flight or buy our own transportation and sign their waiver. 7) The service in all was awful. The ladies behind the reservation desk always seemed exacerbated. The service in restaurants was rarely ever met with a smile. I witnessed the housekeeping staff and bartenders have multiple tense discussions/arguments in front of visitors. It just became uncomfortable after awhile. In all, I'm sure other Sandals resorts are great. This one is lipstick on a pig. It looks great from the outside but isn't once you stay there.This however is not five star. It's two hours from the airport with lackluster service. Save your money and go elsewhere. Read less

Had to be transferred here due to the Covd19 outbreak. We were staying originally at Halcyon Bay. Given an upgraded room at the Grande. Superb views great comfortable room with fully stocked included mini Bar Wines spirits a soft drinks. Huge four poster double bed supremely comfortable . Enormous hotel but has a great personal feeling, all the staff were courteous ,charming and friendly, nothing too much trouble even though the hotel was having to shut down. We thoroughly enjoyed our few days here glorious weather large white sand beach. Numerous restaurants French , Italian ,creole , high end service in The Palladium. You will not want for anything here and all included. The staff at all Sandals seem charming and personal from the management to the gardeners and beach attendants. Would definitely recommend and happy to return,pity the virus hit the World and ruined many people’s holidays, I felt heartily sorry for all the staff who were being laid off hopefully only temporarily. My heart felt thanks to everyone at Sandals Read less

Wow. The facilities were very nice, and the food was very good. The views were beautiful. This, I expected for as much as it cost. Meeting expectations however, does not a 5 star review make. Where my expectations were not only exceeded, but blown out of the water, were the people. The staff at the Grande St. Lucian are in a class of their own. From Remy and Dwayne at the Beach Bar (with thanks to Carol, Irenus, and Matthew there as well), to Dexter, who got us involved with several events, and Edwina, Neville, and Natalie, who kept us dancing as part of the Entertainment staff, it truly seemed like it was the goal of everyone working to make sure were were having a good time. We couldn't pass by ANY of the staff members, from Housekeeping, to Groundskeeping, to Management, without being greeted with at least a smile. Most asked if we were enjoying our stay, and if there was anything they could do for us. I felt like a King, and have been disappointed here at home that no one seems NEARLY as interesting in making sure I'm enjoying myself! The biggest downside I could add would be the drive from the airport to the resort. At about 90 minutes, it's long, and can be a bit twisty if you get carsick. I think next time, (oh yes, there WILL be a next time) we'll get the private car to and from the resort. Or maybe the helicopter. This downside does come with one important caveat. Since it's on the other end of the island, we had little to no traffic by the resort. Most of the cars seemed to be from staff, and only on Sunday night was their any real noticeable road noise. Overall, thank you, Sandals for treating us like royalty. We look forward to visiting the friends we left there soon! Read less
