My husband and I celebrated our honeymoon here 5 years ago and couldn't wait to come back. We came back in May 2019 for our 5 year anniversary and already can't wait to be back again (hopefully in less than 5 years!) One of the best parts of this resort is the staff. They are honestly the kindest, most helpful people on the planet. I've done a lot of traveling and nothing compares to the way they take care of you here. Yes, you pay the money but these days, that doesn't always matter. Our airline had delayed our initial flight causing us to miss our connection and delay our trip by an entire day. It was a huge bummer but after our airline changed our flight to depart a day later, I called Sandals and they ensured we could stay an extra night free of charge. While I was completely fine with if we had to have a different room for the last night, we didn't even have to change rooms and got to enjoy the trip that much more. Sandals could've easily charged us for this extra night and they did not. That was SO much appreciated and I can't thank them enough. In addition to the flight mishap, our bags somehow ended up on the island of Curacao and we didn't have our bags for the first two nights (tip - pack most of what you need in carry-ons -thankfully we did but it was still stressful!). In the airport they gave us a form and one we got to Sandals, we gave it to them and they literally tracked down the bag, told us not to worry and took it out of our hands. It was so appreciated. Big shoutout to the people in the concierge club reception area for doing all of this. It really made a big difference. Safari Tours Desk - Noel is the man. Helpful, genuine, kind and funny, I enjoyed seeing him almost daily and booking our tours with him. He really knows how to connect with people and make you feel like you're friends. Spa - We had a $500 spa credit for the Red Lane Spa. Tameka and Vanessa gave my husband and I amazing massages (I work at a spa so I get them often!) and I got a fabulous facial as well from Tameka. Both ladies are knowledgeable, kind, gentle and amazing at their jobs. Each time we'd pass them in the days after, they'd be sure to greet us and ask us about our stay. Bar - this is specifically for the quieter bar over by the gardens + rooms. I am not a drinker at all but Shara makes something called a Sensational Mama and let me tell you - this is the most delicious smoothie ever with a little bit of alcohol and tastes divine. My favorite part? Daily at 4 or 5 when I'd hear Shara saying "teaaaaa time!". She is a sweet lady and I actually miss seeing her! That said, all bartenders we came in contact with were kind. Some other people... Maverick - he's a butler and he's the man. While we didn't have a butler room, we knew him from our last trip. He feels like that friend you've had forever and it was so great to see him and his smiling face daily. He is a really generous, down-to-earth, hardworking man and we wish him only the best. Watersports area - great, helpful people over there. Do the double tube (Big Mabel) - we did it everyday and had a blast. Food - you can't go wrong with any of the food/restaurants here. They all have amazing food, no matter what you palette is. I'm a pretty simple girl while my husband has a more expansive palette and we both enjoyed trying new things. All food is fresh, local and prepared well. There is a wide variety of foods as well and during our 6 nights here, we couldn't complain once about the choices! Room - super clean. I'm pretty picky when it comes to cleanliness and everything here was top-notch. Bed was super comfortable, TV's (for nighttime chilling) were great and rooms had everything you needed and more! Anything additional, you just had to ask! From the workers painting sidewalks, cleaners, landscapers, to restaurant workers to those at the front desk, every single people we encountered said hello, had a smile on their face and really made you feel like you were long-time friends and family. That's what makes this place great. We went over to the Grande and were going to stay the day but after 3 hours returned because it felt much more homey and hospitable. If you are looking for a RELAXING, true resort experience, stay at Halycon. If you're looking for a Cancun, more party-like environment, Grande is your place. Both are beautiful but Halycon is exactly how I imagined our trip to be but even better. I really miss our vacation and I miss the people just as much. I can't wait to go back. Thanks to all! PS - there is a man on the beach that sells his artwork. He is not pushy at all but extremely talented. We gave him a picture of something and he carved it out onto wood perfectly. If you're looking for quality work that helps support a local, I highly recommend checking out his talents. Read less
