    My wife and I spent a week at Halcyon Beach. It was absolutely fantastic. If you can splurge for the Butler Service, DO IT...and with a little luck you will get Gibson. Gibson made our experience genuinely relaxing and wonderful. Just do yourself the favor and book today!

    This particular property is older and the main lobby and pool area are a little tired and could use a refresh. They do have newer pools that are sort of hidden and they're much better! The vibe is super low key and almost 100% couples and honeymooners. Having gone with friends, in hindsight we should've stayed at one of the other Sandals properties. The food was very good for all inclusive food, but we had a hard time getting reservations at their restaurants. The plus side, is there are 3 Sandals resorts on the island so we were able to get more variety by going to the Grand and LaToc properties. As far as I know there was only one option for breakfast at Halcyon which is the main buffet (always the same) and it gets old after a few days. The staff was very friendly but not once were we ever offered a drink while on the beach or at the pool, so don't expect to be waited on unless you purchase the club level. We did the outdoor couples massage and it was a lovely experience and my husband even enjoyed it and he doesn't really like massages so kudos to the ladies who work at the spa! The bartenders are super fun and will banter with you and entertain you if you want to engage, which our group did. (Especially Mikey!) The front desk staff was very aggressive at check out and hounded us with about 15 phone calls and banging on the door relentlessly shouting at us "may we have a word with you?" We checked out by 10:30 a.m. but I guess they wanted us out of there sooner for a shuttle that we didn't arrange. We had always planned to take a taxi on our own. That is my only real complaint. Overall it's a fine resort, low key, good food and we enjoyed ourselves!

    A Treasure!

    We stayed at the Halcyon for 3 weeks from 20th May 19. One week in a Crystal Lagoon Club Walkout room and two weeks in a Honeymoon Butler Suite with Private Pool. We are lucky enough to have stayed at other Sandals and many other Caribbean resorts over the years and Halcyon is one of our new favourites! The grounds are the prettiest of any resort I have been too, especially around the new crystal lagoon area. The lagoon is wonderful, quiet and relaxing. The rooms are mere steps from the pool with their own sun loungers so you are always guaranteed your spot! Room interiors are well appointed and spacious, bathroom a little on the small side but perfectly adequate. The second room we stayed in was perfect. Private and secluded with Butler service. Maverick, Claudia and Gibson looked after us very, very well. So well, that now we are home, it’s diet and detox time!! We enjoyed all of the restaurants, Kelly’s and Marios our favourites on site. Plenty of other restaurants to choose from at the other two resorts and we loved Bombay at the Grande. We went twice it was so nice. The beach is not quite as you see it in the brochures, but very pleasant and warm calm sea. You will meet Charlie the Rasta vendor. Loud and fun, easy going man. No sales pressure. Now to the best bit, the staff here are fabulous. We did not meet anyone who did not offer warm smiles and great service. If I could name everyone in this post, I would. Nothing too much trouble, everything done with ease. Remarkable how, with all that the resort offered, the staff, (Lamar, Shervon, Ernest, Brooklyn, Dawn, Laverne, Dexter, +++++++++everyone!), made the holiday so special. We will be back next year. (PS Ricky was ok too ??).

    A Great Week at Sandals Halcyon Beach!

    We spent a week at each of the three Sandal’s properties in St Lucia, and Halcyon Beach was our first stop. First of all, consider taking the helicopter from the international airport to and from the airport in Castries. It saves so much time and all the winding roads!??It is a beautiful resort with lots of well kept foliage which gives it a tropical ‘feel’. The beach is nice with a lot less wave action than Sandal’s La Toc. We were in a Beachfront Crystal Lagoon Swim-up room which was very spacious and had all the amenities that we needed. We spent quite a bit of time on the patio at the back of our room next to the crystal lagoon.??The food at the resort was of a high quality. Our favorite restaurant was the Italian restaurant Marios. The food here was great, the service excellent, and it just felt so cozy! We also liked Kelly’s and Bayside.??The service at the resort was outstanding! Also, we have been to seven Sandal’s properties and the Club Sandals here is the best so far. It is so spacious and cozy. It is the complete opposite to the the one at the Royal Caribbean in Jamaica.
