Kelly and Brian just returned from a romantic honeymoon in St Lucia, and I love that they took the time to send me their thoughts/feedback about the three Sandals resorts on the island and which one might appeal to which couples. The properties really do have different personalities. It reminds me of Goldilocks and the Three Bears – one property might be too big for you, one might be too quiet, but one will feel JUST right. Kelly and Brian were thrilled that they had chosen intimate little Sandals Halcyon Beach.
I’m sorry this took so long! We had a fabulous time in St. Lucia. The weather was beautiful all week and only rained the last night we were there for a little bit. The resort [Sandals Halcyon Beach] was very nice and quaint. Our room had a beautiful view and we are glad we decided to go with it. I’m attaching a bunch of pictures, some from the view of our room and some from our excursion to the volcano and the candlelight dinner we had on the beach.
There are three Sandals resorts on the island and guests are able to go to all for dinner or whatever else you want, and they have a free shuttle that travels to them all throughout the day. However, we didn’t even feel the need to. Even though Halcyon was the smallest, it still had enough restaurants to eat at, the Italian restaurant was delicious. We did find out a few things about all the resorts though, if you have people that want to party more then the Sandals Grand Resort (the beach there had clearer water). Also, if someone wants of a spa experience or wants to go golfing then Sandals La Toc is the place to go, however we did hear the golfing was on the expensive side when you add everything up.
The excursions we went on were nice, the views there are excellent. Seeing the volcano was interesting, it made you realize that you were actually on one. However a lot of people went on the “Joe Knows” tour and it seemed to be a big hit. If you have anyone else going to the island and want to see a little of everything, that is the one to go on. It has snorkeling, mud bath and volcano springs and an authentic local lunch.
The food and drinks were all very good. The dinner on the beach we had was excellent and very romantic. We definitely would recommend St. Lucia to other people.
