Amazing (extended) trip to St Lucia Sandals
We are officially St Lucia Sandals experts after this trip! My wife and I came to Sandals for our honeymoon for 5 days, but due to the St. Vincent volcano eruption, we were here for 13. We got to try every restaurant (some more than once) and many superb dishes and particularly at Gordon’s and Tuscinis. Thank you too Dwane, Gregory, and Shanne for the amazing service! Our drinks were always full and the meals were perfect! We went on 6 amazing scuba dives, all included with the excellent scuba staff! And I wanted to give an extra shout out to Bailey, Jackie, and Sue-Ann, our fantastic butlers who took care of us even after two flight cancellations! Sandals was very accommodating during the flight cancellations and let us keep our butler level with charging us “distress rate”. One piece of advice though: purchase disaster insurance. Very worth it in case of volcano or any other natural disaster. Thanks Sandals staff for an amazing and unforgettable honeymoon! We’re very ready to be headed home after 13 days, but will still miss it!
My Retirement Kick-off
Retired the end of March and wanted a week to disconnect. Wanted to enjoy beach and eating time with the wife and diving and fishing when I could. It is an excellent resort with a cordial staff. The food and drink were good and plentiful. The views and activities met all my expectations. The only negative is the hour and half drive to/from the airport.
We traveled to St. Lucia and the Sandals Grande from the US for our 10-year anniversary. The process for pre-screening and arrival was clear and we had no issues with COVID. Sandals called several times prior to departure to check we had everything we needed. This attention to service continued throughout our stay. Everyone was extremely nice and attentive. During check-in, we mentioned in passing our love of the lava cake dessert we had enjoyed in Antigua. Apparently, St. Lucia doesn't normally serve this dessert. At dinner that night the pastry chief Rosette stopped by our table to let us know she was going to be purchasing ingredients and making this lava cake just for us, she just needed a day or two to get things together. And sure enough, she hand-delivered lava cake to our dinners multiple nights. How cool! Our concierge staff was awesome and help us plan several excursions. The island isn't totally open but we still enjoyed a cruise, powerboat, and some other events. Our couples massage was so relaxing we both fell asleep; success for parents on a getaway week. We can't recommend it enough.
Lovely St. Lucia
This has been our 4th trip to the Grande and we always love coming back! This is by the far the best property of the 3 Sandals locations here and the beach is spectacular because it is in a protected bay so the water is always calm and crystal clear. The staff here always goes out of their way to make sure you feel comfortable. A special shout out to Lance at club sandals who did everything he could to make sure we were happy. The nice thing about this property is that there are so many places to find what you want. If you want activities and music then the main pool is where it’s at. If not, then you have 2 pools that are much quieter, one even faces the beach area. We like coming here because of the beach. It’s our favorite beach by far and you can always find a chair, swing or a hammock. The one complaint we’ve always had about Sandals, and we know they really try, but the food is sub par. It tends to be over sauced, lots of mayo, and fried. Even the flavors are bland and don’t have a lot of seasoning. I wish they had more island specialty foods to try, not just plantains. I’m sure it has been tough with Covid but it’s always been the case, but we love the property so much we overlook it but wish we didn’t have too. As far as the rooms go, we’ve had butler service at bigger properties but you do not need it here unless you stay in the overwater bungalows.. We stay in a honeymoon penthouse club room and love the view. Just be mindful that the closer to the main pool the louder the music is. You won’t be disappointed if you come to this property. It’s worth the hour and a half drive there. Get a private car if you can although there is a ferry now that can take you or a helicopter.
