    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!!!

    We booked this vacation for our 25th Anniversary. Sandals was over the top! Everyone that works there is fantastic, all smiles, very helpful and remembered our names when ever we saw them. We went primarily for the diving and were not disapointed. The dive team is incredible along with the dive sites. Everything was right there, plenty to do at every turn and the food was awesome with many choices. We did visit the other two resorts but for our diving needs the Grande was by far the best. Thank you Sandals for the vacation of a lifetime!!

    The Sandals team members felt like family by the end of the week, especially Neville, Nyah and Nadia!!! Too many names to list them all. This is the finest resort in the Caribbean. You can visit 2 other Sandals resorts at St Lucia for dinners etc, but I highly recommend staying at the Grande!! They have the best location and beaches.

    I would say this was my least favourite sandals, due to the fact it was a bit dated, and wasnt the biggest resort, however there was plenty of restaurants, its a good location and the beach is lovely, overall i would return as we like sandals but when the new one next door is built
