I had a great experience staying at Sandals Grande St. Lucian. Like many reviews on this resort, I repeat that the food was great, service was excellent, and the rooms were clean, well kept, and modern. I'd say the highlights of the trip were the following and I recommend others to reviewing these points if they are considering booking at...

My husband and I just got married on this resort (7/20/13) we stayed the week and overall had an amazing experience. Here's what you need to know: Under NO circumstances waste your time with the excursions! They are ALL complete misrepresentations! We did the horseback riding which was not only a complete joke, waste of time and money, but also...

My wife and I loved this resort! It was our first visit to Sandals property and we were very pleasantly surprised.

The resort is ideally situated in an amazing portion of the island and is conducive to many activities and excursions, whether by sea or by land. The facility is well maintained, and quite luxurious and there is always maintenance and grounds personnel walking around to make sure the resort is well manicured.

We had such an amazing experience here for our honeymoon. The entire resort was beautiful, the staff were all so friendly, and the food was amazing. Also, I was a little concerned that we would just be in "America" on an island. It was so nice to see that the resort really tries to immerse itself in the local culture...

My husband and I had such a wonderful time here. The resort was clean and gorgeous, the restaurants were phenomenal, the activities were super fun, and the excursions were top-notch!

Awesome destination wedding! Transfers: Sure drive was about 1 1/2hrs long from airport but all the resorts are. The resort is definitely worth the drive and gave us a chance to see the island along the way. Lots of right and left bends in the road but I didn't hear anyone complain about any kind of car sickness Nice greeting...
