    Just returned from Halcyon Sandals and we have had a fab time- albeit quite a few bites which we didn’t get at Sandals Antigua as they used to Fog every day with pesticides. I really expected Halcyon to treat mosquitoes eat the same. I have to say that the journey from the airport was not the best. The all seater taxi had seen better days- a broken windscreen, very battered, not much room considering the length of drive from airport to the hotel - an hour and a half. It struggled on the hills and there were many going over the mountains to the other side of the island. Hair pin bends galore and the driver overtook many lorries without being able to see a clear road ahead, I felt quite sick on arrival to the hotel. We were greeted very pleasantly and when asked how our journey was when I told them, they did say that they use different drivers for return journeys so hopefully travel should be better. I have to say that the staff are very friendly and welcome you to the hotel. It was good to see he manager Christopher every day and he actually took the time to speak with you. On the day of our departure he was in the reception area and came and shook our hands and said he hoped to see us again back at the Halcyon. FOOD We ate at all the restaurants during our stay and I have to say that they were all very good. Kellys over the sea was our favourite restaurant.the steaks were superb The new swimming pool was fantastic albeit we used the older pool where the animation team were as there was more going on STAFF All of the staff were friendly and attentive. Nothing was too much trouble. Special mentions to Samuel the animation team member who worked very hard to get people to join in the quizzes and water games. He had a fab sense of humour and was so funny all day and through to the evenings. MARTHA in the main restaurant for breakfast, lunch or evening meal was fab and greeted us daily knowing our names. Nothing was too much trouble. MIRANDA again in the main restaurant and Kelly’s the one evening was very informative on the food and again funny with a great sense of humour. Nothing was too much trouble. ADO/ Adonesia the manager of the main bar on the evening was amazing and very friendly, he remembered our drinks and as soon as another one was finished there was another one ready for us. TEVIN the young lad on his 10 week training course was a very friendly young lad. Very confident and obliging. Couldn’t do enough for you.

    I CANT WAIT TO COME BACK!!!

    I’d like to start off by saying this was by far my best vacation ever! It was my honeymoon but still nothing short on their part, but exceeded every expectation by far!!! . I could seriously name almost everyone that works there because of how personable everyone is!!!! I would like to start off by saying thank you to Shara, Agnes, Jonathan, Simeon, Jamal, Tevin and Waynelle in the bar!! If They saw me walking up to the bar for a drink or saw my glass was almost empty they made sure I was taking care of IMMEDIATELY, knowing the exact drink I wanted EVERYTIME. Seriously this was amazing in itself. Shoutout to the chef in Mario’s Casimir for the best Italian food, and who comes and greets you at the table to make sure everything is tasting good “ravioli” is the bomb!!. Shoutout to Ricky for always making me smile and laugh! AND Good luck to anyone who can beat him at ping pong! If you get a massage, make sure to ask for Cyrilla and Temauka. They are the best!!!! Now for Samuel!! Everything you did made the trip that much more fun!!!! Keep up the amazing work Samuel!!! You truly are a star!! Lastly Herdasha and Sherlone sent us off with such a beautiful song!! Thank you!!! James and Melanie Elliott

    We’ve just returned from a 12 day holiday to celebrate my wife’s 50th birthday. Having considered all 3 St Lucia resorts we were really glad we chose Halcyon: set amongst stunning grounds, the place is just so relaxing. The nightlife is low key although there were some fun nights like the Karaoke and Caribbean music evening but largely the visitors are couples (mainly honeymooners)enjoying each other’s company. It was also the friendliest resort we’ve visited with both staff and fellow guests happy to stop and chat. We did visit the Grande, which was much livelier with a younger, louder crowd. We didn’t go to La Toc but didn’t hear great reports (hilly was the adjective most used). The food was excellent in all the restaurants and we had no problem making reservations. Probably our only slight issue was the lack of choice at lunchtime, with only the buffet and beach bar to choose from. The beach is gorgeous and we took full advantage of the free water-sports, including the free snorkelling trip where you are taken on a boat down the coast to a beautiful sea arch and reef. Much has been said about the quality of the staff and it’s entirely true but one person made our stay extra special; Nyree on reception treated us like old friends from the moment we got there until the day we left. Her warmth, professionalism and genuine dedication to making our stay perfect was amazing. She is a real asset to the Halcyon and also a lovely young lady.

    Excellent Honeymoon

    Had a great experience! All around wonderful vacation. Ridley and the rest of the water sports staff were awesome! They taught us how to hobie cat and it was a blast. There was always something of interest to do. But if you wanted to just relax there was always a great lounger next to one of the three pools or the beach.
