If you long to relax in a garden paradise and awaken your inner Adam & Eve, the exotic Sandals Halcyon Beach is for you. Tranquil, yet indulgent when you want to be, this is the ultimate St. Lucia beach resort.

This is a seaside oasis featuring the Caribbean's most famous Pier Restaurant set out over the sea, and true Caribbean architecture that set the stage for an enchanting island romance in this true Garden of Eden.

Overview



Of all the Sandals beach resorts, it has been said that perhaps Sandals Halcyon Beach best defines the Caribbean—set on a palette of lush gardens bordering the tranquil Caribbean Sea. By design, this all-inclusive St. Lucia beach resort is built naturally into the environment with no building higher than the highest palm. Classic Caribbean architecture and quaint, charming ginger breaded cottages are creatively designed to meld into the luxuriant surrounding landscape.

Lazy swims in the secluded lagoon pool (one of three), seductive strolls among birds of paradise and brilliantly shaded trees, and an unwavering sense of "No worries, Mon" brings your fantasy island to life. A highlight of every St. Lucia vacation is indulging in the island's most impressive dining experience at The Pier—dramatically extending 130 feet out over the water. It's just one of four restaurants and seven bars, plus with our dine around program there are seventeen additional restaurants at the neighboring Sandals St. Lucia Resorts. With a spellbinding backdrop of verdant mountainsides reminiscent of exotic Fiji, your senses awaken. This is quintessential Caribbean, and you are about to surrender to a world of enchantment and the ultimate island state of mind.

Review:   When we arrived at the Halcyon at the end of January on our honeymoon, we were taken to the Club Sandals to check in. We were then escorted to a room, and the staff member told us that we were upgraded, and that we would get it if we were "nice." He proceeded to take us to a garden view room with a small private pool and no soaking tub. It was nice, however we booked a beach view/walkout room with a soaking tub and requested that we please be taken to the correct room instead since this room had neither of those things. Of course, this was not possible because the resort had overbooked, and used the term "upgrade" as a slimy way to avoid fault. We were told that we would be able to have the correct room the following night, but the first night were out of luck, at which point we asked to speak to a manager. The sandals manager was unapologetic, however she offered a lower tier room with a soaking tub for the first night, which we accepted. We then had to ask what would be done for compensation. 3 days of breakfast in bed were offered. That felt pretty pathetic, especially considering food is already included. We had to raise a stink to finally get something more. A candlelight dinner on the beach (supposedly a $199 value...) was what we finally agreed to. At no point from club sandals did we hear an apology, but plenty of "As I said" and "I cannot". The next day we were moved to our correct room. We took a late afternoon nap and woke up to a hot room that evening. The electricity had gone out. We called the front desk and they said a maintenance person was on the way. We waited for at least 30 minutes and had to call the front desk at least once more before an engineer arrived. We sat in the room while he attempted to resolve the issue (removed lights, the bathroom mirror, moved furniture around to get to outlets, etc). The Duty Manager also arrived in the mean time, and was much more apologetic than the previous night's Club Sandals manager. However, we were scheduled to have our make-up candlelight dinner for the previous night's issues and were needing to get ready. To summarize, the issue was not able to be resolved that night, so after dinner we were again moved to another different room for the evening. They prepared the tub for us, and offered a couple's massage and private car to the airport as compensation this time, without us having to ask. We were moved to our correct room the following day. Both days we were told to check to see if our correct room was available by "2 pm". It felt like the days were revolving around that, instead of relaxing like we expected. We did not want to unpack our suitcases comfortably, since we had to keep repacking to move again. 2 nights were essentially screwed up, and we were only there for 5 nights total. Another unrelated screw up by the Halcyon Club Sandals was a reservation for dinner we made for Gordon's at the Grand, was apparently not received by the restaurant. Again, we had to argue, but were finally seated. Another complaint is that the beach at the Halcyon is apparently public. Any time we attempted to go down to relax we were immediately harassed to buy stuff from locals (within 5 minutes). Even saying, "no, we don't have any money," was apparently not good enough and we would have to have long conversations before they would finally leave us alone. Again, not at all relaxing. It's too bad, because for an all inclusive resort the food was quite good and the drinks were not at all watered down. The grounds at our resort were beautiful as well. Of course, these resorts are not cheap. At no point were we compensated for any of the nights. The handling of the first night situation is the primary reason for this rating, the other issues just piled on.

Review:   Went to Sandals Halcyon for New Years with my girlfriend's family. First time out of the states. The week I spent there was by far one of the most relaxing and fun experiences I have ever had. Every single member of the staff was kind, courteous, and attentive. Maverick at the front desk was very charismatic and professional. A man by the name of Johnathon was very helpful one night helping me to my room. I went to the Grande down the road during my trip; it was too crowded and too large for my taste. Halcyon had just the right size of beachfront, the rooms were right on the beach, and the feel was very cozy and private. Would recommend this to anyone looking of a quiet escape from the world!

Review:   Absolutely the best time we've ever had. The staff - and I mean every single one of them - went out of their way to make sure our stay was pleasurable. From Garfield at check in with a glass of champagne, to Agnes at the quiet pool bar who is the sweetest woman, Dawn the masseuse with the magic hands, Chewy from Loyalty, Rita the Bartender...funny how I loved all the bartenders LOL. And so many others. The restaurants were fabulous! Do go to the Japanese one and Kellys Dockside. They are reservation only but usually have openings. It is customer service personified.

Review:   We came here to relax in a peaceful setting that also allowed us to engage by choice (aka a place that wasn’t a party scene but also wasn’t a retirement community) and this was just right! Melissa in the concierge lounge really elevated our experience and is a standout for excellent customer service. When a hotel shuttle departed early without us, the General Manager intervened and personally resolved the problem. Chris Elliott is a wonderful man and the resort staff have nothing but kind words to say about him. Well done sir. Pros: —People, especially the Dutch interns, Melissa, and Chris! —The grounds are well-kept and the friendly cats (we named one Peter Pan) add to the fun —The food was pretty good as all-inclusive resorts go. The lamb at the main restaurant was DELICIOUS. —Included scuba diving made the cost of the resort worth it Cons: —Alcohol in room is of lower quality despite the advertisement and the “house cocktail” at the restaurants was usually pitiful, but that’s what the full bars are for :) —WiFi didn’t work in room and although we asked about it on several days, the problem was never resolved during our week-long stay. —Had to come home hahaha
