    My husband and I and his brother and his wife vacationed together celebrating both of our-forty eighth wedding anniversaries The most wonderful vacation ever!! The staff was simply outstanding. I was amazingly surprised at how attentive everyone was. Special thanks to Rohan, Pamela, La Toya, Ramala, Thaddeus, Mr. Gilbert and Gema. Rohan you are a gemstone. The wide selection of restaurants and diverse cuisine made for perfect dining experiences. There was always something to do or just hang at the swim up bar. It was truly an all inclusive experience, no hidden fees. My husband and his brother enjoyed the unlimited availability of golf. We also loved the spa. We are returning next year.

    We stayed here in October 2019 for our honeymoon. Everyone of the staff members was warm, friendly and inviting. The resort was beautiful. There was lots to do. We never really left the resort. The food was phenomenal. The rooms were spacious, clean and had amazing views. The spa was wonderful. They really take pride in making sure everyone has a wonderful stay. Highly recommend.

    This is our second visit to this property and in our opinion it is the best Sandals property in St Lucia. The St Lucian people are very friendly and are a credit to Sandals. Our experience was second to none. Our club level room (2409) had a fantastic view of the beach and Caribbean Sea. We had a tendency to stay by the small pool near our room but we never had to move from it to get drinks as we had frequent visits from waitresses to order drinks. The food we had in general was lovely especially the Jerk shack jerk chicken with volcano sauce. If you like spicy hot food try it. For returning guests it is definitely worth attending the returning guest dinner. We look forward to the surf and turf main course. A few small negatives worth pointing out. Coming from England we like our tea. It used to be Liptons English breakfast tea but Sandals have changed supplier to Bromleys. In our opinion a step backwards. I would prefer more choice in the house wine not just three red grape varieties from the same supplier. We did not like the starters in the Indian restaurant.Perhaps we are spoilt in our country. However, all in all a great holiday provided by warm friendly people in a gorgeous setting. Special mention for Alwin in the Loyalty department who provided us with outstanding concierge services. We have been to many different Sandals resorts but in our opinion this is the best.

    Great honeymoon

    Stayed at Sandals Grande and had an amazing time on our honeymoon. The entire staff was accommodating and happy. We had a club level ocean view room, while we did not utilize the room service/in room mini bar probably as much as I had wished, the concierge was extremely helpful in booking our reservations for restaurants and excursions. During the day the pool bar is a great time. Met a ton of people throughout the week that we ended up doing excursions with and having dinner with. At night we pretty much stuck to the pub and pool room which was also a lot of fun. They had a DJ on a few of the nights and had football games on which was nice for late night drinks. Orion and Skeet were awesome in the pub. Top notch service and super friendly guys. For excursions, we did JJ's boat tour which was the highlight of our trip. They were so much fun and the stops along the way were cool too. The rum punch is great and it was nice to see some of the local scenery. The food was great across the boards, we ate at pretty much each of the restaurants. Out of the three reservation restuarants, we ate at all of them and a second stop at Bombays, the Indian restaurant. I had never had Indian food before but it was fantastic. The service there was even better. Top notch across the board. Gordons was good but I think the setting on the pier and the view overshadowed the food a bit. If you do Gordons I recommend trying to get a reservation around sunset. It makes for great pictures. The only negative I really have on the trip was the ride back. We took the helicopter on the way to the hotel but opted to just take the shuttle on the way back to save the money. They make you leave around 10am, we arrived at the airport around 12pm for a flight that didn't leave until 3:30. It would be nice if they could push departure back until 11 or 11:30 so people could enjoy the resort for the morning and have lunch. I am sure it is tough timing the traffic to the airport so they leave plenty of room for delays. I talked to numerous people that had been to several Sandals and they all said the Grande was in their top one or two choices (the Bahamas being mentioned quite a bit too). We planned on visiting the other resorts but after the first few days couldn't see spending time in a shuttle to leave a place we were having a blast at. The staff and service really made our trip great though, especially the guys in the pub, Bombay and Gordons. The housekeeping staff was also fantastic.

    My husband and I stayed at the Grande St. Lucian resort for our 30th wedding anniversary and we were treated like royalty. Everyone there from the time we arrived until the day we left was so friendly and I would definitely recommend the Peter special from Peter the bartender at the main pool bar. "Bebe", Candy, Peter, Dexter, and all the others I failed to mention were so fun and we really hated to leave all of y'all behind. This place a a most do on tour bucket list!!!
