When we first arrived we were taken to a lovely lounge in the airport just for Sandals guest but we didn't have to wait long before being taken to our hotel. The ride was unavoidably a bit long, but the driver was curious and took it slow over any bumps so the ride was pleasant. After arriving at the Halcyon,...

We expected for what we paid and all-inclusive would include some kind of internet access (they advertised Wi-Fi) -- either a business center or public area access; instead charge was $14.99/day or $42.99/week (we were there 10 days, had a crisis to deal with and it cost us an additional $45 for 2 hours of internet -- minutes used on...

Dear djlind.

My husband and I traveled to St. Lucia for the first time on Jan. 12-19th. It was a amazing trip. We stayed at the Halcyon resort and loved how it was small and quaint, very layed back. Everyone there is so friendly and willing to please your every need. We loved participating in the activities that the playmakers provided. A...

This is the 5th All Inclusive resort we've stayed at, (Including Palace resorts, and Secrets in Mexico and Couples in Jamaica) but the first time with the Sandals brand. Couples is our favorite. We thought we'd give Sandals a try. It is not comparable at all. Granted, St Lucia is a different country with a completely different attitude. (see more...

We stayed at the Halcyon from january 11th-18th of 2014 for our honeymoon. This was our first time at a Sandals and first time in St Lucia. We had picked Halcyon because it claims to be very romantic and secluded. and it totally delivered. The resort grounds are kept in absolutely beautiful shape. The plants and trees are just gorgeous....

My husband and I went to St. Lucia for our first anniversary. We really enjoyed the relaxed state of the Halcyon. The grounds are gorgeous and the rooms are well kept.
