The Sandals Grande St. Lucian was a stellar resort all around! The service was impeccable not to mention the incredible food (Hibachi, Indian, Italian, and Sushi dinners; Beach-side lunch cafes, crepery, etc.), friendly staff/locals, entertaining shows, endless drinks, and plethora of excursions. The beach is luxurious with plenty of lounging space to soak up sun while enjoying beautiful vistas of the Caribbean Sea and Saint Lucia. We sat in the floating donuts in the Sea for hours drinking endless tropical daiquiris. By far one of my favorite vacations and definitely the most relaxing. I think this place would be hard to beat, coming from someone who’s traveled the world. If you’re undecided on this resort or Saint Lucia, I promise you won’t regret it. It was the trip of a lifetime.

Hotel's Favorite
We traveled to the Sandals Grand St. Lucian for our daughter's wedding. We couldn't have been more satisfied. They exceeded all expectations. The resort was lovely with a nice beach, great pools, really good food, and their service was exemplary. The wedding was perfect. The flowers, the steel drum band, the cocktail hour, and the dinner were exactly want we wanted. The only downside was having to leave when the week was over. We have already booked another Sandals trip, and we can't wait to go.

We just got back from our honeymoon to the Grande St. Lucian. Overall it was a wonderful trip however there are a few things that I think could be improved. The good - the food was very good and I loved how many options there were available - I loved taking out the sailboat and really appreciated the number of different activities available to guests - The shows were very well done and I thought that the Broadway one was especially good. Bravo - The beach was very well-maintained and very clean. I loved that it was private and I did not have to be bothered. I loved the chairs and appreciated that they were cleaned frequently - The property as a whole is very well-maintained and beautiful. The pool bar is awesome and the guests were very kind and talkative and wanted to be there and have a good time The ok/needs improvement - the service was mediocre. I strongly agree with one of the other reviewer‘s Who mentioned that there are rock stars here but there are also some people who clearly do not want to be at work and are really not very friendly. It made me wonder if they had some issue with me - these very few laggards made the experience less enjoyable despite the many staff who are very kind and attentive. The bad - I got a little sick from the seafood (i think) one night at Kimonos and I’m actually still experiencing diarrhea from it 4 days later - there was just a general confusion about the schedule of activities. The clubhouse gave me a schedule of the activities which was mostly not followed however I must say that the entertainment at night was followed very accurately and it was in fact a very good show. The app would show one activity but it didn’t actually happen. - I hated getting the sales pitch on excursions. It never really ended until it was my last day and people realized that I could no longer book excursions. I paid for all inclusive so that I did not have to worry about buying anything else but all the excursions are ridiculously expensive. No thanks - warning: don’t leave your valuables out, I had most of my stuff in the safe but my AirPods disappeared from my room unfortunately Overall I would not go back to this resort. I really do believe there are better All inclusive options

My girlfriend and I just got back form our trip for a Weddingmoon for her friend. We first were escorted to a sandals waiting area to be taken to the resort. We then were accomadated with our own driver and vehicle because she is very sensitive to motion sickness. Our driver was very nice and very informative all through our 2 hr. drive to the resort. We were then greated by the very nice greeters at the entrance and our bags were wisked away by the bellhop straight to our room. Go to check in and the process was stress free and then were excorted to our room with a very nice concierge. We felt like family from the time we stepped foot out in swimming area. The only complaint I would have is from the Barefoot restaurant because from the time we ordered our food till we got it, it was well over 1 hr. The staff for their wedding was amazing, and was so glad at the end of the reception we were able to let them enjoy themselves and show us all how the St. Lucians party. I would definatly recomend going here if you are looking for a relaxing time.
