Over Sandals Halcyon Beach

Our favorite
Op St. Lucia is een aantal Sandals te vinden, alle met de ‘Luxury Included’ formule. Deze Sandals Halcyon Beach is de meest knusse, omringd door weelderig tropische tuinen, waarin de ‘cabanas’, huisjes, met hangmatten liggen. ‘Love is all you need’, Sandals zorgt voor de rest. Zoals een uitgebreid All In programma, waarin alle maaltijden -van snack tot een gourmet diner– en ongelimiteerde drankjes –van frisdrank tot wijntje en alcoholhoudende cocktails- zijn inbegrepen. The Pier restaurant is een favoriet; genieten van haute cuisine op het water, maar ook trattoria Mario en het openlucht café Bayside bieden niet te versmaden  mogelijkheden. Tevens heeft Sandals een sportief pakket beschikbaar, zo kunt u windsurfen, waterskiën en  duiken (voor gecertificeerde duikers), tennissen en golfen. In de fameuze Red Lane® Spa kunt u terecht voor schoonheidsbehandelingen en massages (tegen betaling). Er is gratis Wifi beschikbaar.

Het vulkanische eiland St. Lucia is bergachtiger dan de meeste andere Caribische eilanden. Hierdoor is een vakantie St. Lucia net even anders dan anders.

"Not worth it."

   25-03-2017
Sandels does a great job luring you in w/ pictures and great advertising. Be careful what room you are in, Ocean view means you can see the water from your room, but that doesn't mean its close. I will say the staff was great and it was nice and quiet, but rooms were nothing special. It was just your normal hotel, I could of been in FL and not known the difference. Food is ok, but nothing St. Lucian about it. It was nice to have multiple restaurants to choose from, there are 2 more Sandals close by w/ free transfers. Beach is PUBLIC, not private! The other sandals seemed nicer than this one, but I won't be visiting a Sandals again.

"Beautiful week at Sandals Halcyon"

   24-03-2017
Sandals Halcyon is a beautiful resort. Very clean and the staff is very attentive. Our room was right in front so our view was beautiful from our patio. The room was a little dated but very nice. I understand that some of the rooms have recently been renovated. I think they should renovate them all. Beautiful gardens and very well kept. The beach is a bit rough...what there is of it. Spent most of our time around the main pool because of the narrow beach. Don't let that deter you though. You can catch a shuttle to the Sandals Grande and spend the day at the beach there. A big shout out to the staff for the most part especially Jenna Lee, Ricki, Rea. Also to Vern and Yasmine in the Red Lane Spa. All went above and beyond there jobs to make us feel comfortable and pampered. Totally enjoyed our week at the Halcyon.

"A magical week"

   23-03-2017
My husband and I just returned from a great week at Sandals Halcyon Bay resort where we stayed in a Butler Service Room with Private Plunge Pool. We loved the size of the property which is not overly large and the beautiful setting and landscaping. The beach and pools were lovely and I swam every day. We enjoyed all of the restaurants and found there was ample variety for our one-week stay. Our room appeared to have been recently renovated and was very attractive and comfortable. All staff members at the resort are unfailingly friendly, polite and helpful. A big shout out to our butlers, Claudia, Davina and Yves, for their proficient and considerate assistance and to the staff who gave us terrific service in the restaurants – Dora, Priscus, Matthew, Shervon and Davis among others. Also we had a great time chatting with our driver back to the airport, Mark Francis of Holiday Taxi, who is very friendly and well informed about the island’s history and current news. I do have one suggestion for management about something we encountered both at Sandals Antigua where we stayed last year and also at Sandals St Lucia Halcyon Bay – turn the music down! We found the music from the nightly entertainment to be excessively loud. We chose not to attend the evening performances so we stayed in our room and even with our door closed the noise was booming. I don’t understand why they have to amplify the sound so much – even if it was turned down significantly the group around the pool would have no problem hearing the entertainers. All things considered, however, we would definitely love to return to Sandals Halcyon Bay Resort!

"Sandals St Lucia Halcyon"

   23-03-2017
This was hands down our favorite Caribbean trip to date. St. Lucia is a beautiful place to visit and Sandals is the only way to do it. We stayed at The Halcyon and we LOVE IT !! It's gorgeous, intimate, fun and the entire staff here is friendly, helpful and knows how to make you feel at home!! Everyone remembers your name and they want to be sure you have a great time. We live the fact you can stay at one but have access to all 3 Sandals here which they shuttle between and is only a 10-15 minute ride! It gives you so many options!!! We love going to The Grand, we visited twice for the day and enjoyed the beach there tremendously... more party atmosphere. We liked coming back to Halcyon for our more intimate setting! They are all wonderful and offer something for everyone. All I can say is WE WILL BR BACK TO HALCYON!!!! Thank you to everyone who made our trip incredible.

"Good hotel, beautiful gardens, warm sea"

   22-03-2017
We spent two weeks here at the beginning of March 2017. A very nice hotel indeed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay – just pure relaxation. The staff are very friendly and helpful. But being quite critical when a hotel puts claim to being five star, here are my comments (not in any particular order): Went to breakfast one morning and asked for coffee and a mug of hot milk. They took both cups and saucers away! Finally attracted the attention of Francis the waiter. He was on his way to our table when two attractive young ladies entered the restaurant. He immediately turned to them to see to their needs, leaving us waiting… He did not come to our table afterwards either and after waiting a few minutes, we had to call a waitress. This left us feeling very much like second-class guests which was not a pleasant experience. Room service here does not mean having meals served to your room! It means having your room cleaned and bed made – which is perhaps something to bear in mind if you like to eat in your room sometimes. Room floors all mopped with the same half bucket of water, so if your room is last to be cleaned, the dirty water gets spread all over your floor. I tested cleanliness of several floor areas with a white tissue – it was grey in all of them. Cleaning staff do, in spite of a checklist, tend to forget something, i.e. a facecloth or milk for coffee. Came back from the beach at 17.30 one day, the cleaners had just started in our room. Not practical when one wishes to shower and remove salt and sand and get ready to go for dinner at 18.30. First week, water not always replenished in our fridge. One evening not too late I called to ask for water because we did not have any left at all. I was told they would find someone to bring us some. Nobody came, so no water that night. The hotel keeps quite a few cats in the grounds to keep the lizard population in check. They do feed them dry food and look after them so they look healthy, happy and are not the usual painfully thin cats found in other resorts. They are friendly but, cats being cats, will beg for food in the Bayside restaurant. “Beg” is perhaps too strong – they sit next to your table and look up at you. We were lucky to be here at the right time to enjoy two ginger kittens, around 5 months old. They were cuteness overloaded and didn’t just want to eat, but to play as well. The slightly smaller of the two was extremely gentle and liked having his tummy tickled. He would then clasp your hand or finger in his paws and gently nibble them. You can take some ham and/or salmon from the breakfast buffet and we fed the cats on our patio early mornings. Given the chance, they come into the room, and one even curled up on our bed for a nap. So if you don’t like cats, this is not the place for you. The Bayside restaurant, where breakfast is served, is open on three sides and birds are always flying inside and checking out tables for whatever they can find. Cats also come in and wait for food. I was told cats should not be fed inside the restaurant. Sometimes a cat is shooed away, but birds are not. They are seemingly very concerned about people having allergies but those concerning feathers and birds, or cats for that matter, are not taken into consideration. This restaurant is right next to the bar and pool where a lot of animation takes place, so expect loud music to start at any moment, drowning out all conversation. The area where singers and dancers perform is very small, so I do not really understand the need for microphones. It would be loud enough without. This restaurant serves French dishes except on a Monday evening when there is barbecue accompanied by extremely loud music. The Italian restaurant, Mario’s, is set apart from the Bayside restaurant and is not so big. As the name implies, Italian dishes are served here. It is very good too, but the portions are not very large, so load up your plate with antipasti first. You can go more than once if you wish. Kelly’s, on the jetty, is very good too. Lovely steaks and fish dishes. It is fairly large and mealtime is accompanied by piano playing. A nice touch, but if you enjoy conversation more, keep to the other side of the restaurant. There is also a small beach bistro. Bars are dotted all around so drinks can be had at any time. They make a super fruit punch for those who don’t drink alcohol. Beach is small but nice. There are six sun roofs and some portable sun domes. Pieces of coral do get broken off from the coral reef further out to sea and are washed up onto the beach or are hidden in the water, so we wore our beach shoes to prevent cuts on our feet. Crickets come alive at night and don’t just chirp happily, they whistle here! And that all night long. If you like the wildlife, no problem. Lizards are also frequent visitors to the patio and we even had one in our bathroom. They are harmless however and just watch you. When it rains hard, you can watch out for toads hopping around. Beach vendors: some locals are allowed to sell their wares on the beach. Rasta Charlie – a good humoured fellow - is amongst the most colourful. He is always ready for a chat and readily answered any questions I had about his lifestyle here. Daniel is also a very friendly beach vendor with a good sales technique: says come and talk to the locals and then gently draws you into a conversation which subtly turns to the bracelets, necklaces and turtles he made himself. The vendors are not pushy though and will take no for an answer. But they do make very pretty things. A selection of Caribbean things is sold every Thursday near the noisy pool and Bayside restaurant. They do have some great men’s shirts. This group is more pushy though, so be prepared to say no quite firmly. The resort is lovely, with beautifully kept gardens and two pools (one is a quiet pool). Our honeymoon hideaway room looked over lush greenery and the quiet pool. The room was quite big with plenty of wardrobe and drawer space for clothes and other belongings. Staff friendly. Room décor: as with so many hotels these days, dark brown furniture and cream/beige walls and floor. The climate here is warm all year round and water temperature around 25o C. It can rain quite hard – even in the so-called dry season – but a large umbrella is provided in each room. A hairdryer is also provided but it is not very powerful, at a guess, 1200 at the most. The Sandals Halcyon Beach is in Castries but tucked away in its own grounds so you do not get that much noise from the road outside, except when a tuned motorbike roars by or a police car with siren. Guests are offered a free photo-shoot but we received our invitation on a Wednesday evening and the shoot had been scheduled that Wednesday morning so we were not able to take advantage of it! Organisation needs to be improved here. The Halcyon is one of the smaller – and probably quieter - Sandals resorts and guests are in general a bit older. Although younger couples do come as well. There are a lot of English and American guests, very few Germans, Spanish-speaking people either from Spain or South America, the odd Canadian or two. Electrical sockets and voltage are the same as in England, 3 square pins. There is a U.S. style 3-pin socket as well. Our room also had a safe in the wardrobe, a fridge and tea/coffee making things. I ordered tomato juice with Lea & Perrins sauce at dinner. The waitress asked about the sauce again, then went to the bar. A waiter brought the drink, the waitress then brought a bottle of red liquid saying it was Lea & Perrins sauce. I said no it is not because it’s red and asked to see the bottle. At second (or third?) time of asking, she showed it to me – it was Tabasco! When I ordered a second tomato juice with sauce she said that’s what they call a Bloody Mary. I said no it cannot be, because a Bloody Mary has alcohol in it. Oh yes it is, she said. She went to the bar and brought back my drink. I took a sip only to find it had vodka in it! I explained to another waitress what had happened and she brought me the correct drink. I understand that mistakes can be made, but in this instance, it could have had very nasty consequences. Some people have to take tablets which do not tolerate alcohol and the combination can make you very ill indeed. Or, someone may have an alcohol allergy, then this would cause an anaphylactic shock which, if not treated instantly, can result in death. This young waitress evidently does not have much or any experience of alcoholic drinks and makes statements that are just not true. This sort of thing should not happen at all. Some of the waiters and waitresses cannot muster up a smile when serving guests. This unfortunately gives the impression that they do not enjoy working here and that they are not particularly friendly. Perhaps a quiet word in an ear or two would work wonders. I noticed that some of the serving personnel do not even look directly at the guest when informing about daily specials or taking down an order. Some even look in completely another direction, making it impossible to hear what they are saying. We enjoyed our two weeks at this resort but I don’t feel it is somewhere we would come back to. On the whole, I feel more attention should be paid to detail here.
