We loved this Sandals. The other two on the island are much bigger, louder and have high rise buildings. Fun to visit, but we were glad to stay where 99% of the buildings were single story and they were all nestled in to the greenery and all near to the beach. Food was really good, staff was great and we...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We stayed in the honeymoon walkout room. It was wonderful! The staff was very helpful and attentive. Only thing I was like to see is a nice schedule given to the guests of when the restaurants are open (maybe they could give it during the tour we took upon arrival). We liked the shuttle service and the help booking tours....

This was our fourth trip to the St Lucia Halcyon. As we expected it was amazing. We have gotten to know the guys on the beach very well. Iman and his wife, Tameron, Charlie and the guys from Julian tours. These are beautiful local people just trying to make a living. They are fascinating and very interesting to talk to....

We have just returned from a two week break at the Halcyon and cannot fault it. The Sandals people were the best we have ever met and that also goes for St Lucian people as a whole, the most friendly kind people. The only thing we were not too sure of was the restaurants, it would have been nicer to...

Our ocean view room (#145) had a patio where we had our morning coffee and tea watching the ocean and enjoying the sea breeze. The grounds are lovely, and we watched for hummingbirds as well as other birds. The staff was attentive to our every need. They were cheerful and friendly. Jonas taught us how to sail a Hobbie Cat,...

The staff are what make this resort everyone of them is so friendly. So many to name, but look out for Dora (manager of Mario's) and Agnes (quiet pool bar attendant). Food was excellent and enough choices to keep us happy over 19 days. You can visit the two other sandals resorts if you want more options. And therein lies...

We loved our room at The Halcyon, it was beachfront and just a few steps from everything. It rained a few times while we were there so the in room umbrella was wonderful. All of the restaurants were amazing and we enjoyed every meal we had. The excursions through Island Routes were wonderful. We took the " Party Like a...

Really disappointed with our stay. Main complaints about the room. We stayed in a Beachfront walkout butler room (room 146) in the Ciceron building. There are 16 rooms along the beachfront (set back slightly) in groups of four.The room was advertised on the Sandals website ( last year at time of booking and still says) as "newly renovated, spacious rooms...

The resort was beautiful and clean. The staff, especially our butlers, was exceptional. The food was great as well. Our Oceanside room with the pool was fabulous. Would visit again in a heartbeat.....

we had a wonderful stay at the SANDALS HALCYON . Loved every minute of it. We chose Halcyon as we were looking for a smaller resort. The smaller resorts you don't seem to get lost in the shuffle. The staff gets to know you by name and I think it's more enjoyable. We got to play at all three resorts...

“The quiet pool was wonderful, but the rooms around it were quite near the road so I'd imagine there would be road noise.”
