On our returning visit to Halcyon the welcome was first rate the accommodation and facilities were very good. The Staff of the Halcyon always make you feel welcome and in their eyes treat as 'family'; nothing is too much trouble for them.
We will certainly return again

Stayed 7 nights at the Halcyon. It was wonderful to get away from the snow and go somewhere so beautiful. The staff was outstanding, always helpful and so friendly. Has 3 resturants and all of the food was great. Loved the french toast every morning. Jonas at the water activities was so helpful in teaching us how to use a catamaran and boogie boards. Our butlers Ronald, Silveria and Willard were the best. Always had our fridge stocked and somehow knew when we were back from mud bath touring and had a hot bath waiting. Joe Knows tour is the best! The atv and horsebacking riding tour was also worth it.

Room Tip: We had a Romeo and Juliet Butler Suite. It was a perfect location were you could hear the waves at...

What a wonderful piece of Paradise; we have just returned from 2 weeks to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary. From the cake and card welcoming us to our room, to the warm friendliness of staff, to the great food and service we couldn't have had a better experience. We especially wanted to mention Mickey, behind the bar, Curtis the piano player in the Piano Bar and Kelly's - we had some late nights singing around the piano, and of course Agnes - the Legend herself who lives up to all previous reviews. We treated ourselves to a helicopter transfer which was really worth the money - we were at the Resort within 30 minutes! Also the Sugar to Rum tour was excellent with "Stormin' Norman" booked through Island Route Tours in resort. A relaxing, chilled out holiday which was exactly what we wanted; fully intend to return in the future.

Room Tip: Our consierge room was great in block 700, near the quiet pool.

Got married at Sandals Halycon last week. The hotel itself and the quality of the food is outstanding. All the staff were so nice and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. A special thanks to Tracey and the rest of the wedding team. Although quiet and small (just what we wanted) there was the advantage of being able to visit the other 2 Sandals hotels in St Lucia via a free shuttle bus so loads of different restaurants, beaches, pools etc to try. The French in Le Toc and the Italian in the Grande deserve a special mention although our favourite was Kelly's in Halcyon. Shame Kimonos was not open whilst we were there. My only negative comment is the lack of sunshades on the beach. It was a bit of a nuisance on your "weddingmoon" to have to set the alarm to reserve a shade. Management take note.

This was our 4th stay at the hotel and on our recommendation our friends Neil n Fran came with us to celebrate Fran's 50th and their 25th anniversary. Our recommendation didn't disappoint as both Neil n Fran LOVED the entire stay, as we always do. Both me n my wife Pauline felt like old friends as we met with the "staff" we have grown to know so well.

From the moment we arrived we felt like Sandals royalty meeting all our friends with a kiss, hug and a HUGE smile. As always a huge thanks goes out to all the playmakers, Everton, Neillan, Viana, Eslyn, the man Chevy, Alissya, Garfield and young Greg who make our holiday great, even tho they tend to cheat at pool volleyball!!!!!!!!!

This review wouldn't be complete without a big up to all the bar staff especially Aaron who has looked after us for the last 4 years. Big mention also to Adoniger(nobody) who always seems to have your drink ready 2 sips b4 you were finished, Kurby( wwhhaatt??), Rita, Valencia, Jimmy. Shari. Nice to see Agnes again on her bithday.

Meals were fantastic at the Halcyon, although the Pitons at Le Toc was the stand out.
Great to eat in the Pier/ Kelly's Dockside and see Sheena again who first met on our 1st visit and glad to see she's still there and progressing, look out for Stethi, Davis and Derrick who are full of life and work in the other Halcyon restaurants.

Nice to meet Mr Dupal again, who for someone that meets 000's of people, always remembers us.

How anyone cannot enjoy themselves at this hotel is beyond us as we have not had a bad day let alone any complaints.
We are well travelled being all around Europe, Dubai, Oz and cannot faults Sandals at all.
Ignore the bad reviews as they are probably looking for upgrades or compensation.

Just book it and you WILL have a ball.

Room Tip: Block 5 & 6 at the Paradise pool are perfect.

This is an excellent place for peace and quiet. Easily the smallest of the Sandals on St.Lucia and far and away the quietest - which for us is a very good thing.
The place is very well looked after by a large number of very friendly staff. The service can't be faulted.
With only three restaurants and one snack bar, you will want to make use of the "Stay at one, play at three" service to eat at the other Sandals.for a bit of variety.

Although this is nothing to do with Sandals:- beware of dodgy porters at Hewanorra airport who will pounce as you come out of security, carry your bags all of 15 feet to the Sandals lounge and then demand money.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the gardens are quieter. There is a generator or pump of some sort near the fitne...

What's on the tin is what you get. Our 4th visit and it never fails to provide a wonderful holiday experience. Only comment is that changing the name of The Pier restaurant to Kelly's Dockyard doesn't conjure the right image. Kelly's Pier would have been better. However the quality of the food remains as high as ever.Staff are always helpful and really contribute to the experience.
You can visit the other Sandals resorts but Halcyon is like getting home after a night out.
