Returned from Sandals Halcyon Beach following our honeymoon. We were originally at Sandals Regency La Toc however although it was Great we found it a tad " Lively " .....We visited the Halycon Beach resort and it was like walking into Paradise, the whole Ambience is much quieter so we requested if we could transfer. The Hotel Manager Martina was simply brilliant and we cannot express our thanks enough to her and the team for making the process happen efficiently. The Hotel is as the others on St Lucia right on a lovely beach and sea conditions were always calm. We found the whole experience very geared up to people of our Age ( we are in our mid 50's ). All the staff are superb and constantly asking if everything was good or was there anything they could do, it really made you feel special. the Restaurants are extremely good and of a very high standard, service was efficient and we could not fault a single thing. Also a special mention to Melissa in the Hotel shop, what a lovely character she is. We had a room overlooking the Lazy River pool and it was fantastic, all round much quieter than the La Toc with great Air conditioning. In summary if you want a relaxed time in a beautiful hotel with brilliant Staff and fantastic food then the Halcyon beach resort is for you, we would definitely have no reservations about a return trip Thanks to Martina and her team, you made our honeymoon very special Read less

I am so excited to write this review of Sandals Halcyon. It’s going to be long, but that’s only because there are so many incredible things to say about it. This was our first Sandals experience, and we decided on Halcyon to enjoy our honeymoon. We didn’t know much about this resort before arriving, but it was the BEST surprise! From the second we arrived, we were greeted by Garfield, who made us feel instantly welcome. He was kind, well-spoken, genuine, and made us feel like we were part of their family. He took the time to show us around the resort, get us acquainted with our room, and make sure we were all set before leaving us to begin our adventure. Thank you, Garfield, for being the first amazing person we met on our vacation. This resort was the most beautiful place I have ever seen. You did not feel like you were at a hotel, you felt like you were in the middle of a tropical paradise. The grounds were gorgeous and well-kept. The plants and flowers were simply magical. I can’t say enough incredible things about the aesthetics of this resort. We had the chance to briefly visit the Grande, and drive by La Toc, and while both were beautiful resorts, I couldn’t wait to get back “home” to Halcyon. There is something about this place that makes you feel like you really are home. Most of this is because of the MOST INCREDIBLE staff there! While walking through the grounds, there was not one person who didn’t stop what they were doing to welcome us and ask us how we were and if we were enjoying our stay. This really knocked our socks off. It made us feel so special and just put a smile on our faces. The food here was DELICIOUS! There was something for everyone, and every single dish was clearly made with love. The amount of time spent on making the dishes look amazing and unique did not go unnoticed. No matter what the meal was, buffet or not, each dish was expertly set and carefully decorated. Wow! All the activities provided were so much fun! From pool volleyball to cake decorating to rum tasting, you guys had it all! There was never a lack of things to do. One of our favorite activities was Big Mabel at water sports. That was one of our favorite memories on this trip. Darnell was a huge part of that! He took the time to talk to us about the different options available and even offered to teach us how to use the different equipment. He was so patient and kind and really made us enjoy water sports more. Two other water sports employees that made our stay extra special were Tyrone and Dione (spelling?). This pair was hilarious! They made sure we enjoyed every second of Big Mabel. They laughed with us and once again, made us feel like family. We are so thankful for the whole water sports crew! What a fun bunch! There were plenty of other employees that made our stay extra special. Tevin at the bar was one of the sweetest people we met! He was so polite and made sure we were taken care of. He was just awesome! Shara at the bar was another person we absolutely loved! You can tell she loves her job, and she made everyone else have as much fun as she was having! Her energy is contagious, and we loved getting to know her. She makes everything more fun! Miquel at the front desk was another amazing employee! His smile was so genuine, and he was extremely helpful. Anything we needed; he was happy to help with. He made us feel so welcome. Ernest from Bayside was also so kind and helpful. He was always so happy whenever we saw him, and that translated to us. He made us feel even more happy to be there, which I didn’t think was possible! Gavy was another employee who we enjoyed getting to meet! He was very happy no matter what and always stopped to ask how we were doing. Thank you, Gavy! Simeon and Jonathan the bartenders were awesome! They always made us feel special and made sure our glasses were always full. They were kind and energetic and clearly love their job! Thanks for being so great! DD from the entertainment team was so much fun! He was always doing something hilarious when we saw him and it made us laugh. He has an awesome energy and it rubs off on everyone else! Herdasha from the store was yet another amazing woman! She welcomed us each day like she was welcoming old friends. She was so helpful with anything we needed while shopping in the store. She was patient, funny, and kind. We loved meeting her! Also at the store was Melissa. Wow, oh wow, Melissa is AMAZING! I truly felt like I had known her for years because of how genuine she was. She would stop whatever she was doing to come talk to us and you could tell she really wanted to get to know us. I can’t say enough good things about her. She taught us many things about the culture in St. Lucia, and we are so thankful for that. She is an outstanding employee and we really miss seeing her smiling face every day! Ricky the ping-pong master was someone who we got to know very well. What a FUN guy! His personality shines wherever he goes. I have never seen someone smile so much while at work! He made us feel like his buddies from years ago and made sure we were having fun no matter what we were doing. He was outgoing and positive and truly made our stay more exciting. We absolutely loved getting to know Ricky and see his energy light up a room. Lil Nicky from the entertainment team was also a riot! He was so fun-loving and aimed to please. He did whatever he could to put a smile on people’s faces. His energy is awesome! Che was another person we enjoyed meeting. He has a great personality and we just thought he was awesome! He was a fun member of the team. Last, but certainly not least, is Samuel from entertainment. Hands down, Samuel made our stay the most fun. There is something about him that makes you just feel amazing. You can be having a rough day, but as soon as Samuel shows up, you know it’s time to be happy. His smile is infectious and his personality was incredible. He has a way about him that makes everyone feel energized. His ability to get a group of strangers to do silly things and become a family is awesome. I don’t know of anyone who enjoys their job as much as Samuel. You guys have a gem of an employee with him. Overall, every single staff member at the resort made us feel like the two luckiest people in the world. I have never met a group of people who were so welcoming and genuine. I can’t say enough about your staff. BEST PEOPLE EVER!!! We have already decided that because our stay at Halcyon was so incredible, we have no desire to visit any other resort. Halcyon for life!!!! Thank you so much for the best 9 days of our lives!!!! Read less

We were at the Halcyon for 2 weeks in June/July 2019. Airport transfers were, by far, the worst part of the whole experience; we made our feelings known to the club lounge staff and were assured that the same level of discomfort would not be repeated on the return transfer, but it was! Their own vehicles are comfortable, air-conditioned and a pleasure to travel in, for the shorter journeys, between the three sister hotels: This only served to compound the low standard of the overheated, cramped and overcrowded transfers. We were mislead with regard to the quality of golf available. The La Toc 9 hole course is in very poor condition and the country club, with only 9 of its 18 holes open, was a minimally-slightly better option. We would actively discourage any one considering this as a golfing destination; this was echoed by all the other hotel residents who played the courses. Just as an aside, the infrastructure for golfing transfers is non-existent. We had to have a taxi to the La Toc even after booking more than a day in advance and were brought back from the country club, by a maintenance man, in a pick-up truck because arrangements had not been made. The beach is lovely and there is no problem getting sun beds. There is a lively main pool and a quieter pool at the rear of the resort that suited us. The resort is a very good beach holiday, but most definitely not a golfing destination. Read less

This was our 2nd Trip to Sandals in St Lucia and 1st time at Halcyon. It was amazing. Very peaceful, tranquil and quiet (well, except Carnival was this week in Castries...that part was loud!). The staff at Sandals was genuinely happy to serve us and make the stay there the most amazing we could have. The staff we LOOKED for were: Wait Staff: Victoria & Celina, Concierge: Amy & Glenda Red Lane Spa: Vanessa & Tameka . These ladies were just phenomenal to be around and fun to talk to. This resort is for sure the least crowded and most restful of the 3 Sandals on the island...not that you every feel as if any of them are crowded. The food was over the top great! I did not hear ONE person complain about anything the entire time we were there. If you were hesitating or wondering where to go in the Caribbean, stop...just go to this place. Really. I do plan to take my spouse again. I will NOT wait 15 years between trips this time! Read less
