My husband and I decided to go to the Halcyon for our honeymoon June 2, 2013 - June 8, 2013. The gardens that surround the buildings are amazing and the room that we chose was Very spacious. We decided on the Gros Islet for a room instead of ocean view because you really are in your room to sleep and...

My wife and I honeymooned here for ten days in early June 2013. I was concerned with a ten day stay in such a small resort that dining and entertainment options would get a little repetitive but figured having the use of the other two resorts would alleviate this. We ended up not even wanting or needing to visit the...

My daughter got married in the Piton Mountains in St. Lucia June 1, 2013, and had her reception at La Toc where she stayed, as did the in-laws, man-of-honor and another couple. My husband and I chose Halcyon, since we liked the garden atmosphere and wanted a more relaxed setting. Since all of us were able to travel between the...

I stayed at Halcyon the week of May 26th, 3012 to June 2nd, 2013. I am a returning Sandals guest but this was my first time in St. Lucia. The island is amazing. The resort is very small and quiet compared to other resorts. Most of the staff were good. I stayed in a Butler level room and the Butlers...

My new wife and I stayed at the Sandals Halcyon Beach resort from October 22nd to 31st, 2012 for our honeymoon and had a great romantic experience. This was our first all inclusive experience which took a lot of the guesswork out of "what's for dinner?" Great if you truly want to relax and not have to worry about anything....

This was our 6th trip to Sandals in St. Lucia, 2 stays at each property. Halcyon is our favorite because it is smaller than the others and more intimate. Here many of the staff call you by name each time they see you instead of just being another guest. That recognition is great for the ego. The food was outstanding....

What a terrible waste of money the 4 of us spent. Worst Holiday experience ever. We had an upgraded sea front villa and two of these as My father and Mother in Law were with us to. Our company was great but Sandals had no attention to detail and the toilets backed up twice and we had to be moved....
