Sandals Grande - Good or Bad Which is it??!!

We are booked to go to the Sandals Grande at the end of November and I have been following the reviews daily. We are very experienced travellers (travelling 4-6 times per year) and have never, never, seen reviews that were so inconsistent!! Some people love the resort and some people hate it. What's going on. Is service and food so inconsistent at this resort to account for this type of experience? If you are lucky and get a good week, then the reviews are great, and if you are unlucky and get a bad week or a bad few days then the reviews are not so good. I understand that people have different opinions and personal preferences, but this degree of inconsistency in the reviews has me little nervous right now. Advice please on what you think is going on.

avd - I think you hit the nail on the head - clean rooms, happy / polite staff and good food!

We will be there for 2 weeks arriving on 13th. This will be my first trip to the Caribbean - and yes, as you advised I done a fair amount of research before booking. Infact our short list was sandals, a Secrets property in Mexico or a Caribbean Cruise.

We chose Sandals as, for us, it seemed to offer the best value for money for what WE were looking for in a holiday. And St. Lucia seems to have plenty of diverse activities to keep us occupied for 2 weeks! (I can't do just beach and pool all day)!!

Thank you to the others for their experienced comments - I now feel completely happy with my choice - and a little wiser as to what to expect!
