This trip was awesome, sorry I could not stay longer - I would never forget it for a lifetime. We took the 'Beachfront Grande Luxe Walkout Club Level Room '. There were so many positives - I call it the perfect vacation. The hotel provided transportation to and from the airport. There was a complimentary bottle of champagne in our...

Valet-like diving was great. Pickup at 8:10 AM, dive 2 sites, then back at Sandals by 1:00 PM for a full day of vacation. Even if you're not a diver, Halcyon is a great vacation. We've been to several all-inclusives in the Caribbean before, but Halcyon tops them all. The food was not just OK, but very good. Especially Kellys...

Halcyon is a pretty and small resort. We stayed for two weeks and had a fabulous time. We took the helicopter shuttle both ways which, in my opinion and hearing about the long taxi ride from others, is worth the money. We had a one level room near the giant chess area which was always clean and comfortable. The maids...

We stayed at Sandals Halcyon St Lucia for our silver wedding. I can honestly say we had a fabulous holiday. The resort is small and intimate, the grounds are beautifully maintained and very pretty.

We are seasoned all-inclusive, adults-only resort travelers, having visited many high end resorts, such as Secrets, Excellence, Palace, Iberostar, and other Sandals. As such, we believe we are qualified to rate our latest stay at Sandals Halcyon in St. Lucia accurately and objectively. There is good news and not so good news about the Halcyon.

This was by far the worst vacation I've ever been subjected to. Ugly small room. Damp to the point of water on the floor because of the rain. Sink was plugged. No soap, no Shampoo, no umbrella that was supposed to be in the room. Dark, dank, and uncomfortable. I did not want to spend a night there let alone...

The three Sandals resorts are reasonably close together and remarkably accessible. First rate dining with lots of choice since we stayed 2 weeks. We were able to dine at the sister resorts as well. The scuba diving was to die for with competent and friendly staff. A must return spot for sure.
