My husband and I just came back from our second trip to Sandals Halcyon Beach Resort in St Lucia and can't wait to go back a third time. Great weather, beautiful property, amazingly attentive and professional staff, and lovely and inviting accommodations made it a perfect trip for us. My husband enjoyed the scuba and I was content to sit on the beach (in the shade, arranged for us by our wonderful butlers), read books and just decompress. And the spa treatments (pedicure & massages) were the icing on the cake. Read less

This was our 2nd visit to this resort and we stayed in one of the new rooms by the longest swimming pool in the Caribbean (it's 600 feet long). The resort is very well maintained and is very relaxing. The rooms, dining options and facilities are excellent as are the staff. You can visit the sister resorts and also use their facilities and the transport is by Sandals own buses. The swim up bar by the quiet pool is brilliant and Agnes make the best cocktails and is a great character ( it should be renamed "Agnes's Bar"). Read less

Visited Sandals Halcyon from 10/5 - 10/12. Room was nice, housekeeping kept it tidy and drinks for mini refrig were replenished every day. Their schedule for our room was pretty much the same every day so that was nice as far as timing. Grounds are beautiful and and the weather was great all except for one day. This was our third time to this resort and it was nice to see some of the same faces still here that have been here since our first trip in 2007. Just a couple of hiccups that might have been smoother... We were there celebrating our wedding anniversary and our travel agent made a mention of this when she made the booking with the Halcyon. I had read on Sandals website, if you were there celebrating birthday, anniversary, etc. you should let them know so it could be recognized. Upon arrival on Saturday I brought this to the attention of the concierge at Club Sandals check in and they said something would arrive in recognition. As we arrived late that day we did not think much about it and guessed something would arrive the next day. Two days went by and nothing, so I went back to the concierge at Club Sandals and inquired again. Told the same thing, something would arrive. Two more days go by and nothing and by that time I told my husband to just forget it. But he went down to complain and the next day a small cake was there. Not a real big deal but as our Anniversary was the day before we arrived we thought it would be nice to have a little something to celebrate our first day there. The only other hiccup I was, for a Sapphire Status member, we were supposed to receive an in room Edible Sweet, which we did not receive. We were unaware of this or would have also brought it to the attention of the concierge at Club Sandals. We only found out about it after returning home and receiving an email from Sandals letting us know what perks Sapphire Status entitles you to. All in all the trip was very relaxing but undecided if we will return in the future. Read less

After a long flight and a transfer in a tiny mini bus with no air con it was a pleasant welcome to be greeted at the reception with a glass of bubbles whilst checking in.

After a long flight and a transfer in a tiny mini bus with no air con it was a pleasant welcome to be greeted at the reception with a glass of bubbles whilst checking in. We were originally given a 2nd floor lagoon room, but due to eye sight issues this wasn’t suitable but we were soon changed to a ground floor room with a bath on the terrace. There is a few things lacking that could improve the customers stay.. snacks? Bar snacks? Where were they? A buffet meal in the evenings? The evening entertainment was a bit hit and miss.. and not too lively. The sushi bar was delicious.. try the ginger side cars.. Kelly’s do a mean rib eye steak cooked to perfection! All the staff made us feel so welcome. We will be visiting again. Read less

Cons: Vague instructions on arrival, Orientation in the middle of 2nd day (good information but bad time, interrupts day), staff; some hot and some cold, manipulated into buying wrong excursion when clearly stated to 4 team members (Chelsea, Noel, Chris peebles and one other lady) what was wanted leading to missing out on the main reason for coming to st. Lucia, made to feel small and talked over when brought up, no place to do laundry or clean up at another resort if visiting. No room service currently. Wish they had sushi open for lunch!! Pros: The room was great, the food was amazing, drinks where good though felt understaffed at bars at times, there were staff members that were amazing though, super friendly, positive, and respectful! After finally getting to a manager (4 attempts, waste of vacation time) she was wonderful. The island is beautiful, just stunning!! If you do a boat tour see julian on the beach, had the best day with his crew! Our candle lite dinner was amazing, massage was great! And again the food is amazing! Read less
