We selected Sandals, St. Lucia, Halcyon for our honeymoon. We wanted the all inclusive resort with the watersport activities that Sandals St. Lucia offered (SCUBA, snorkeling, kayaking, paddle board, hobie cats). It was our first experience with Sandals and THEY DID NOT DISAPPOINT! Don't know where to start so here we go: OVERALL ATMOSPHERE: Wonderful. We were greeted with smiles...

I stayed at halcyon beach from 6/1-6/8/2013. Out of the 3 sandals resorts in Saint Lucia, I enjoyed the setting of halcyon beach the best. Even in the most popular spots of the resort were somewhat quiet and tranquil, but still fun. At first I was a little dissatisfied with the room, booked the "ocean veiw" room and paid a...

Everything was great except that the hot water went in and out. We called to have it fixed, but it still was going in and out throughout the stay. Service and resort were top notch though! We would go back in a heartbeat!

Landed in Saint Lucia and once through customs was taken straight to a Sandals desk, an air conditioned room with seats, clean and fresh toilet facilities and a courtesy drink awaited. The minibus arrived to take us to the resort, a bit strange that they made us take our own luggage from the lounge to the bus - I think...

My wife and I spent a week at this resort and enjoyed the overall experience. From the moment we landed and had first contact with Sandal reps, we were extremely impressed with the level of service we received. The check-in process was great and provided a sufficient amount of information to get us started with the resort. Must say thanks...

We just returned from a 5 day honeymoon at the Halcyon and can say we had a pretty good time there. For the most part, everything was great, but there were a few things that surprised us.

We were at Sandal's Halcyon resort last year and made reservations for another vacation later this year. Due to some family health reasons, we had to cancel our reservations, which included a deposit. We had excellent service from their customer service representative, Crystal. It is a true treat in today's environment to work with a hospitality group that is totally...

We have just spent 10 days at this hotel, and much of it has been excellent. Of all 3 Sandals resorts in St Lucia, this one is the quietest and smallest...if that is what you want, then Halcyon is the choice. There are a few things that make it excellent, and there is some room for improvement; we have noted...

My husband and I went to Halcyon the beginning of June to celebrate our honeymoon. I looked at Trip Advisor reviews daily because I wanted to know everything I could before I went. St. Lucia was absolutely amazing. It reminded me of Jurassic Park, very green and mountainous. It's crazy how long the trip to the airport is considering a...
