“Professional workers”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

We stayed at Halcyon, in saint lucia , the second week of july.
A friend of us highly raccomended Sandals for our honeymooner and we proud of the choice made.
The resort whole was breathtaking,really peaceful and with top staff.
Food and service good all over the restaurant, however we found the italian placeoutstanding.
The name is Mario's, they offer a various regional italian menu followed by first class service.
Stefano Bartolini,the manager,is the most professional guy we've ever met and he spent enough time talking with us to say that this young man is plenty of skills and passion for his job.
Davina,the best smile waitress in this resort,seems worked along Stefano , always ready to take charge when the maneger was busy helping staff. She deserve a price.
We ate in there 3 time and everytime its been an un forgettable dining experience.
Thanks all Mario's staff , thanks allsndals

Number one item. If you can flnd a flight into Castries Airport. Take it. The airport on the south side of the island is the main international airport. but it's like 1.5 hours in a crowded shuttle bus over the mountains to the sandals.

This is my second time to Sandals Halcyon. Can't complain about much at all. I just hate the beach beggers trying to sell you stuff all the time. But that happens everywhere. Our youngest son had a destination wedding. It was great. The staff was great.

Make sure to take the shuttle over to the Grande if you like being in the pool all day. The Halycon has two nice pools. A quiet pool and a noisy fun one. The Grande has tons of pools. Lots of restaurants. Just make sure to visit the other two resorts. It makes the trip that much more fun. We had a total of 10 people in the wedding party that went. Fun was had by all.

My husband and I went to Halcyon with two other friends. We totally enjoyed the resort, the staff, food amenities, cocktails and the entertainment. The staff could not do enough for you. They were all very pleasant and very eager to help with whatever needs you had.

My husband and I had the time of our life. We enjoyed the atmosphere. I like the Halcyon the best. It was the smallest resort out of the is three. The staff really made us feel comfortable. When I say this resort was all inclusive it really really was. I will definitely recommend this resort to any couples that are looking to spend some time together ..

We really enjoyed our visit to Sandals Halcyon Beach! We never passed a staff member who did not great us with something like "good morning" and a smile. The staff was also fun, they would always be singing and dancing, showing they enjoyed their job. The gardens were beautiful and every day they were cleaning and maintaining the beautiful property. The only thing that was lacking at this resort was the beach, it was a bit small and mucky. However, their free shuttles to the other Sandals resorts made it easy to enjoy a beach that was more suitable to us. The all-inclusive Sandals vacation is very much worth the money and we plan to make it a yearly event!

Should you require perfect peace, good service and great food please try the halycon.
Although a lot smaller than La Toc and the Grand this resort will more than meet your holiday needs.
We arranged to get married at the Halycon and due Tracys wedding team everything went without a hitch even if it was just the two of us.
Perhaps the rooms could do with a makeover bot otherwise they were kept spotless
The food at the a la cartes especially Kimonos was terrific and try your best to sample the cocktails at the pool bars.
My only complaint is the price of the wedding photo package we purchased the 24 photo on disc, why not give clients the option to purchase all photos on disc for a more reasonable cost and we were pleased to be given a wedding album and found a good outside cover with just poly pockets inside, so come on Sandals give wedding guests a better quality album.
hopefully we will be back on the beautiful island of St Lucia

Room Tip: get room beside quiet pool

I highly recommend Sandals Halcyon resort. The occasion of our visit was our 20th wedding anniversary. For our honeymoon we stayed at Sandals Antigua. We had such a great time for our honeymoon we had try Sandals again for our 20th. I heard great things about St; Lucia so I booked our 20th at Sandals Halcyon. We stayed from June 22 to 30th. The Halcyon has beautiful lush landscaping. The staff is friendly and everything we asked for was taken care of. Some tips; Go to the Monday manager’s reception. The Halcyon general manager introduces all the staff management. Importantly, he went over how they will address any concerns with food, and service. Bring cash if you’re going to go shopping in town and for excursion tips. (We did the Land and Sea excursion and the zip line both awesome) The ATMs there only provide Eastern Caribbean currency. You have to get it exchanged at a bank. We met other guests from across the US and the UK. The watersports was great; we enjoyed kayaking, waterskiing and snorkeling. The cats added character to resort. The other cool thing was since this is a smaller resort everything was close by our room. Bottom line: We didn’t stay in a butler room, one of the less expensive rooms and for the money our expectations were met or exceeded (food, service, and cleanliness). We look forward to our next Sandals vacation.
