We have just returned from 10 days at the Halcyon Beach Resort in St Lucia. We were very disappointed. Our room was very close to the construction and refurbishment going on at the hotel. Every day there was the sound of tile cutting and drilling, not just by our room but across the whole resort. This would go on from... More

Having had an amazing time at Sandals Antigua last November, we eagerly booked St Lucia this year and it was always going to be Sandals! Having 3 on St Lucia to choose between was tricky so we acted upon the very firm recommendations of some Canadian Sandals regulars we had met and opted for the quieter Halcyon. Since their visits...

Just back this morning from a wonderful stay at the Halcyon Bay. What a lovely bunch of people there, the staff could not do enough for you. The room was lovely, near the road but the noise wasn't a problem. The grounds of the hotel are top rate and kept immaculate. The facilities are excellent and there is always somewhere... More

The air conditioners in the room were limited to 16C. It was very hot at the resort and limited AC at the resort. Construction was going on constantly, it was very loud and the people working at the construction site would ask for food. We were told our room was upgraded, which it was not. No alcohol in the room,... More

I can't warn you enough. Just a nightmare. The entire place is being renovated. We upgraded to a walkout balcony only to hear hammering and construction from 8am to 4. We got into a car accident in a cab going to sandals grande and spent 9 hours in the hospital, sandals private hospital, where they overcharged us by $4,200. Sandals... More

#1 - it's Sandals, so everything is fabulous AND INCLUDED!!! #2 - this is a smaller sized Sandals, quieter and more relaxed than others but still has everything you could ask for. It's like being in a seaside garden with meandering paths, a long beach that extends beyond the property to turn it into a really nice long walk. #3... More

The Sandals Halcyon resort in St Lucia was an extremely disappointing holiday. It is exorbitantly expensive for what is effectively a third rate hotel. The resort looks tired and as such I can appreciate that it needs upgrading (the beautiful photographed Kelly's restaurant protruding into the sea, looks like a post-war beach shack in the daytime that needs to be...

The food here is good. The hotel is small and well maintained. The beach is very narrow, I think they used a fish-eye lens to take the brochure pic. The sea is not clear and nothing to see if you snorkel The staff are great. There is a nice quiet pool with no bloody reggae at all. It's 23.20 now... More
