We returned from the paradise of Halcyon early Dec.2012 and cannot wait until our next visit. Before leaving UK I had read various trip advisor reports and most were full of praise whilst others were subdued by their experiences.
We had a wonderful holiday with beautiful weather, only one heavy shower on one evening, and the rest sunny warm and the occasional clouds. We used the shuttle buses to visit the other two Sandals resorts on some evenings in order to eat at other restaurants although the food at Halcyon especially Mario's and the Pier were exceptional. We dived, sailed Hobies, and water-skied and the watersports staff, the playmakers, and the whole of the restaurants and bar staff were exemplary. I am unable to make a complaint about anyone and find it difficult to understand how anyone could write a review of complaint. The place was clean, the room, a deluxe, was great and well looked after by the domestic staff. The gardens were a joy to walk around.
I would like to suggest that if evening shuttles could be made hourly to each neighbouring resort, say from 5pm to 11pm then it would be much appreciated by many of the guests we met and travelled with
