This was our 5th Sandals stay. Halcyon Beach is a lovely small resort. You won't have to worry about getting a spot at the pool/beach no matter what time of day. I found there was a little too much chatting between Sandals staff at the pool where there should have been more time spent being sure the guests had what they needed, but they were all friendly.There aren't a lot of restaurants to choose from at this resort but the food was really good. The morning breakfast buffet was wonderful! They do a great job making sure there is something for everyone. Special thanks to Vanessa. Loved her chats and pleasant smile.Make reservations for dinner early. Every day we tried, they were unable to accommodate (never before). Top restaurant pick: Marios but the time between appetizer and entree was too long (over an hour) with no one coming to offer drinks in between. There is no cafe bistro at this resort for special coffee/desserts, which was a big miss. Nightly entertainment was great. We stayed in Room 514. It had issues. Fridge leaked until the temperature was lowered (hazard). We woke up one AM to no hot water and the next night to the air conditioner not being able to shut off and the room was cold! There was a dead frog in the room, which stayed there until we left. I had called the resort directly to ask for non-alcoholic wine or champagne in the room and was told "they would see what they could do." Upon arrival, there was which was appreciated but other Sandals were more eager to please, especially before you even arrive! Our room was close to the road so it was very noisy with vehicles, sirens, and dogs barking. These were the sounds we went to bed with instead of the singing frogs, and what we woke up to, but the pool/garden view from the patio was gorgeous. We took private transfer to the Sandals as it is a 1.5 hour drive from the airport. We also did a land tour to the Pitons, waterfall, volcano, etc. Nick was our driver and tour guide and he was the best of the best of Sandals!! Be sure to ask for him when booking; you will not be disappointed. ! St. Lucia is beautiful and with that comes gratitude. I try not to sweat the small stuff but the small stuff added up. When you are staying at a 5-star resort, paying thousands of dollars for a stay, and it isn't 5-star quality, it leaves you not wanting to book again and this was the first time we didn't. Read less

We loved our trip to St. Lucia. There were wonderful excursions, and the resort was great.

We loved our trip to St. Lucia. There were wonderful excursions, and the resort was great. The Halcyon is the quietest of the 3 Sandals resorts, while also being located between the other two, so it is a short shuttle to go play at the others. But after visiting the other resorts, we quickly realized that the better staff, food, beach, and overall environment was at the Halcyon (though the other two have a slightly better scenic view). But here are a few tips for the Halcyon - Stop by the Beach Bistro after 9:30pm to have Quayle make you a late night snack. The friendly conversation and native tips he gave us were invaluable for our stay on the island. Nighttime entertainment was mostly good, but our favorite night was Country Night with Cowboy Eddie - a native St. Lucian singer who absolutely SHOCKED this Texas boy with how much he sounded like George Strait. It was unreal!!! The food at Marios and Kimonos was unmatched, but if you want dessert, make sure to get the Bananas Tempura with ice cream at Soy Sushi Bar - WOW!!!! So good! Also, Lars and Christopher at the Bayside Restaurant were always super friendly and made our trip extra special by remembering us and going out of their way to make sure we had anything we could ever want. Based on the commercials/ads, I've always written off Sandals as gimmicky and seemingly fake, but my opinion has been changed after being there for a week. This was a wonderful experience for my wife and me, and we'd highly recommend it to anyone. Read less

From the moment our plane landed, to the time we were on our way back to the airport to leave, it was absolute bliss. We spent five days in a butler suite with a private pool, and our butlers were flawless. Davina and Yves went above and beyond to accommodate us. At one point, me and my husband were really trying to listen to some music and our radio didn't work in our room, Yves went out of his way, while not even working on our side of the resort that night, he just bumped into us, anyway he went on a hunt to find us a perfect working radio. We also had one other butler in the AM time I can not for the life of me remember her name but she set up our lunch and breakfast everyday and our coolers full of beers by the beach. She was a saint. We went on three of the outings offered by the resort, did a lot of hiking, spent a lot of time on the boats, and didn't have one complaint. The locals we met were the most humble coolest people ever. It felt like running into old friends. During out stay, I needed new flip flops, so off the gift shop I went, Where I met Justina. She was an absolute gem. It was nice to talk to someone who knew a little about the United States, who also has children my daughters age. We connected instantly. She helped me find everything I needed and more. The perfect gifts to take back home for my friends and family. I think these are the faces that sandals needs to show a little more appreciation for. The ones who meet the guest face to face and are truly responsible for helping them make those life long memories. You can't put a price on that. We did try to venture off to the Grande for the day, and ended up coming straight back to Halcyon. The staff at the Grande wasn't as friendly or educated as the staff at Halcyon. Read less

When we got to the Hotel we were told that the restaurant was filled so we proceeded to the bar and waited at least 15 - 30 mins. When the Supervisor finally sat us at our table, i remember saying to myself that the place looks dilapidated and the staff looked rough (unrefined). Our waitress didn't know what type of wines were being served, whether it was dry or semi sweet wine, absolutely nothing. After ordering my appetizer they put the wrong dressing on which had to be sent back. Then we found that the wait seemed long when it came to the Main Course, I asked for my fork to be changed because it seemed like it was in World War 3 the waitress saw nothing to do but returned with the same ole fork. We were treated so badly that by the time we got our main course we were one of the last couples to leave the restaurant. White persons who sat after us got their meals ahead of us and we just observed the racist treatment from the staff at Sandals. I was so excited to go back to Sandals but the service is so HORRIBLE, I left without having dessert. I will never go back there and i hope others follow. Read less

My husband and I came here for our honeymoon! We live a pretty simple life so everything was amazing. The staff is great and they are personable. Excursions are fun! Horseback riding on the beach (we got hackled here as it was our first time and this was the only downside) but it was amazing even though it rained. Hiking the Gros Piton was crazy! I would highly recommend this but now that I did it once, I’ll never do it again!! The view at the top was fantastic. We did a couples massage with Vanessa and Celine and it was absolutely wonderful. I would highly suggest doing that as well especially after a hike. Kelly’s was amazing food and we really couldn’t complain about the food anywhere else either. This resort was a very intimate resort. Not a place with constant partying. The staff is always smiling which made the stay more enjoyable. My only suggestion is to try making friends and enjoying your time there! Try the excursions and enjoy the beach. It was an amazing trip and all we wanted to do was stay. Read less
