Let me be up front. I have traveled all over and this review is over 9 years in coming. My wife and I were married in 2005 and have taken several trips that you will see attached to my profile.
But this one was certainly unforgettable and although I am sure there have been upgrades, new things to do, and so forth, I wanted to at least give this place an amazing thumbs up for the time we did have here.
One of the best aspects of staying at any of the Sandals Resorts in St Lucia is that you can take a bus between the three....and this exponentially increases your ability to do things that one resort may not offer, but another one does...like golf, or French Cuisine.
One great memory was horseback riding, and finding the engine from the SRB of the space shuttle sitting on one of the beaches. Another, more romantic aspect was that our room patio door opened right into a nice little lagoon type pool. And one the incredibly romantic side...for a few extra bucks, there is nothing like having your own table on the beack, white glove service, for a romantic evening for dinner and drinks and dessert...and no one else is allowed out there while you're there. That was worth every penny.
I know there are more recent and relative reviews for Sandals here, but If anyone could have a honeymoon like we did, or even a fraction of it here at the Sandals resorts, I would highly recommend it.
