Quiet, beautiful, very laid back

Pros: Quiet, all inclusive rates affordable
Cons: No free Internet, maintenance needed
For the money, it wasn't bad. We were two couples traveling together and ended up with rooms at opposite ends of the resort even though we had asked to be near each other. We had also requested walk-out rooms and one couple ended up in an upstairs room. Management's excuse was that it had become impossible to accommodate us, even though we had booked months in advance. Just be aware that they do not follow through with what you are told upon booking. The grounds were beautiful, the weather was great, food was good, rooms were only fair (not nearly as nice as pictured). We were told that wireless was available but were not told that they charged you for the service. We travel to a different island every year and don't expect perfection. The few items mentioned did not ruin our vacation but probably would not book again with 'Sandals'.

The worst vacation experience ever.

Cons: Nothing close, No free Internet, Noisy, Poor breakfast, cats everywhere for rat control, housekeeping later than 5pm, no glass bottom boat as promised, worst snorkeling ever, fraudulent hotel operator
Sandals has committed fraud in the selling of this vacation to us. Everything was sub-standard except the fee they charged us. Do not go here!

There is nothing luxurious about this place!

This was a complete waste of time and money. I will forever remember my honeymoon as a total disappointment. There is not one positive thing to say about this place. We were next to no actually we were practically on a freeway. It was crowded noisy. Not at all secluded. There were car alarms and sirens going off all day. There was no room service the rooms were tiny. It looked nothing like the pictures. We were under constant attack by flies mosquitos frogs and spiders. The bathrooms at the restaurants and pools were disgusting. The pools were dirty. The ocean was worse. There was no variety in the food we couldnt even get in at most of the restaurants #40they were booked a week out#41. We were so far from the beach but once you got on it you are harassed by peddlers. There were ferrel cats everywhere. The AC in our room didnt work. The spa if you can even call it that was so gross and we paid an insane amount for the worst massages we have ever had! How this quotresortquot manages to stay open is beyond me. The staff is not attentive or even polite. I will never stay at a Sandals or book through Travel online again - this was nothing but false advertising. The other thing that is conveniently left out is the hour and a half long drive from the airport to the resort that is absolutely horrendous everyone drives like a maniac and you will get car sick. The food was terrible and the drinks that are included taste absolutely horrible and you have to pay extra for anything decent. I have been to resorts that cost a fraction of this that were amazing. Do NOT go to Sandals Halcyon Beach.

Honeymoon at Halcyon

We stayed at the Halcyon for our honeymoon in October. I do not have one bad thing to say about the resort. The food, drinks, staff and resort were all excellent! The Halcyon is the smaller of the three Sandals resorts. It was a perfect place for a honeymoon. We met many other couples and had a great time. The Italian restaurant was my favorite place to eat. Excellent food to say the least. We also took a ride over to eat at the sister properties. We loved Kimonos and the view was breathtaking. The locals in St Lucia are much friendlier than the ones other places I have traveled. They off many different mixed drinks that are all excellent. This was a wonderful place for relaxation after the stress of a wedding. I would recommend this hotel to anyone! We loved it!!

A quiet getaway but not what is advertised

We were looking for a small all inclusive. We heard very good reviews of Sandals Resorts and had never been to one. The location is 1.5 hours away from the major airport in a cramped van. The resort location is on a very busy street and also very noisy. We could hear tires screeching all throughout the day and night as well as sirens, diesels and whatever other traffic noise you can imagine. Tough to remember that you are at a resort. As far as an "ocean view" room, yes, but barely. That description is a real stretch. Our room was right outside the main pool and if you could see over the hedges on the patio and past the crowd at the pool, then maybe you could catch a glimpse of the ocean. We requested a change and got one the next day. The rooms were definitely outdated. We had to call the front desk for an iron that worked, a toilet that "ran" all day and night, and the air conditioner that did not work and was quite noisy. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating to all of our requests. It's just too bad that we had to make so many requests.

Our Honeymoon

We spent 6 wonderful evenings at the Sandals Halcyon, it was the best vacation ever. The time of year was perfect, not busy and not dead. The staff was the most kind and wonderful. Every employee was super friendly, the locals are great. I would reccomend the Hlcyon over the other two Sandals due to the smaller and more relaxing enviornment. The other two are beautiful, as you can visit and eat at the others also, but much larger and you have to take a shuttle to get everywhere. Wonderful trip.

Quiet peaceful

Hotel is quiet and peaceful. In March the beach was brown. Nothing like it looks in the pictures. Rooms are very simple, not luxirous at all. Though one can travel between the 3 Sandals resorts by shuttle. Halycon is cheaper, smaller, more peaceful, perfect for couples.
