All we can say is "wow." From the facilities, staff, food and drinks, we had an absolute blast in paradise for our honeymoon. I've noticed some reviewers have already given the "play-by-play" (arrive in the lobby and greeted by cold towel and champagne, etc...), so I'll skip all of that.
First and foremost, we were most impressed with the staff. Beginning with Winston, and including everyone from the "playmakers" (Mama D), to the bar staff (Davidson), to the servers (Rosie), everyone contributed to make the honeymoon so memorable.
Second, the food was great as well. Lots of options, and make sure to take advantage of the late night buffets (chocolate, seafood, etc...).
Third, while the Sandals Grande is the nicest of the 3 on St. Lucia, try to get over to the other resorts for dinner for a night or two (The Pier at the Halcyon and La Toc or Kimonos at the Regency).
Fourth, take advantage of all the activities planned by the staff. They're fun, and a great way to meet people.
Fifth, swim-up bar that opens at 10am. Need I say more?
And as a bonus drink suggestion, ask for the "Purple Grande," but with Bounty Rum instead of the vodka.
Oh, and finally, the resort is about 20 minutes away from the small airport, and about 2 hours away from the large airport. Translation? Fly into the small airport!
