We have stayed here four times over several years and enjoyed all levels of accommodation except the the butler, and knowing who the butlers are - we could cope with it! We arrived in the Sandals lounge on Good Friday. No rum punch was offered, so I was a tad disappointed. It is a day for doing business, and rum...

We just got back from a 7 night stay at Sandals Halcyon in St. Lucia. Being our first trip ever we did not know what to expect and I can tell you we were not dissapointed in the least. Of course we had access to all 3 Sandals on the island but Halcyon was by far the best in our...

Just a bit shabby at the edges and due for some refurbishing. They seem skilled in doing just enough to keep the 5 star rating. Staff couteous and helpful throughout. The guy who does the tour of the grounds showing the plant and animal life is a legend. Main cafeteria gives good choice but the smarter restaurants barely worth bothering...

First off let me say that I have never written a review of a vacation before, but this vacation warrantied one. The Sandals Halcyon property is gorgeous with its gardens, trees, and winding pathways. The staff worked hard to keep it clean and tidy, usually starting very early in the morning. Speaking of the staff, we never once ran into...

Great week 's holiday. Friendly welcome at the airport and on arrival at the resort. Food excellent and a variety of choice. The new Japanese restaurant opened in the week we were there, good to experience it. A wide variety of drinks, from the local beer, Piton, to the Carribean Kiss punch and the others made by Agnes at the...

We had a lot riding on this vacation since we had been putting it off for so long. Celebrating 10, 15 and 17 years of marriage, knowing each other for 20 years AND turning 40! After reading too many reviews we made the decision that no matter what there will always be a few people who are NEVER happy. Anyway,...

We had a wonderful time at Halcyon Beach. It was Steve's 5th time at Sandals and his second time at Halcyon beach. He promised me a lovely time and it surly was that. We had a little moan about the reserving of sun loungers and not enough loungers to go around the pool. Steve was told. We cant please all...

This was our first time to a Sandals resort and we were not disappointed. This resort is small, easy to get around on foot and had everything you could ever ask for and then some. We had a butler suite and not a single detail was missed. We truly felt like a king and queen for 8 days. The food...

My husband and I have been cruise travelers for 25 years. My parents gave us our 1st cruise for our wedding present...we were hooked until last year.

This was our first visit to a Sandals resort. As we were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary we wanted something special which really wasn't the case. We have been to several all inclusive resorts over the past 8 years and the Halcyon did not stand out (except for service/staff). Our room was ocean front which was awesome but it was...
