I am going to cover the other two peoples opinion first and then I will tell you about my experience. St. Lucia is a wonderful place-and in St. Lucia you will find security to paramount.

This was to be a wonderful 35th anniversary! We were deeply disappointed. I have stayed at another Sandals in Jamaica, but after this experience will never stay in another. Our friends from England, who travel the world and have stayed on many Sandals properties) were deeply disappointed. I will say that Ruth, the front desk manager, did try her best....

We went to Royal Caribbean in Jamaica in 2011 and liked it very much, the Halcyon and St Lucia were even better! However on arrival we were allocated room 200 which was very dark, tucked in a corner next to the service yard. We didn't pay a small fortune for a dismal room so I went to see Ruth, the...

Our sixth visit to Halcyon in itself must say something. Great staff, wonderfully relaxed location and beautiful gardens. Yet the team led by Lennox never rest on their laurels - they're always seeking to upgrade the resort and service standards.

We visited both Grande and La Toc during our time in St. Lucia, and for those looking for more of a younger/party atmosphere, Grande would be the...
