Sandals Grande St Lucian birthday vacation
Went to Sandals in St Lucia for my girlfriends 50th birthday celebration. Had issues with the St Lucia travel authorization and missed my flight but sandals accommodated an extended stay at no extra cost. Overall we had a wonderful experience and were made to feel very special. I’ll summarize the vacation as follows: Accommodations: We stayed on the Sandals Club level and they were first rate. Some hiccups on day one with the internet and tour schedules but they quickly resolved the issues and set up all dinners etc. we didn’t have to lift a finger. Club Sandals is definitely the way to go! Property: Amazing and picturesque! Very clean. Felt very safe with all the Covid protocols in place. Only thing is it is very far from the airport (1.5 hrs) and the transfer ride to the resort left a lot to be desired. We took a private car back and it was well worth it! Food and drinks: Food was ok. Gordon’s was great and the wait staff amazing. We had a private dinner on the beach and it was spectacular. Drinks were blah and most watered down In my opinion. You’ve gotta find that right bartender for sure. Same with many resorts to me. Entertainment: I would say they had pretty good entertainment most nights comprising various performances and then a DJ. Given there was a curfew this worked out fine Tours and excursions: We did the Piton hike which was a long hard day so not for everyone. We planned that in advance so knew what we were in for. The Pitons are amazing and truly a special experience. The other excursion was Soufeire adventure and included mud baths, snorkeling, waterfalls and a catamaran cruise. It was definitely fun! By far the Grande is the best Sandals resort experience on the island(there are 3). Would love to try sugar bay beach or jade mountain next time round. The grande is next to Rodney bay marina which is great for restaurants and shopping. All in all a wonderful trip and the ppl of St Lucia are warm and friendly. Would definitely go back!
Beautiful resort with so much to do. Everyone was really friendly and went out of their way to help celebrate our anniversary with us. Highly recommend taking the helicopter from the airport to avoid the 2 hr bus drive to the resort.
Sandals St. Lucia was amazing. The views were breath taking and service was great. We had two amazing butlers Malaika and Michelle. Our favorite restaurants were Komonos and Gordon’s. Samantha was our waiter at Gordon’s and she was great. Overall amazing resort and amazing trip! Highly recommend.
Best Resort and staff we have ever encountered.
When we arrived we were made to feel extremely welcome and special. Nadia the head of guest relations is absolutely the best. Nadia went above and beyond many times over. Chewy makes future reservations easy and is extremely helpful. Wendy the manager of Barefoot restaurant is very helpful as well as Lisa who works with her. Yvone and Gordons, extremely nice and helpful. Our room attendant Jasmine was the best we ever had. Our dining experiences were very good. Ben at the pool bar remembered our names, which is really special. We highly recommend this Sandals.
A dream vacation
Have always wanted to go to St. Lucia. Finally made it for our 25th anniversary. I thought we’d be too old for this well known honeymooners kind of place. We were wrong on that! We met people of all ages from all over. It was the perfect balance of romantic dinners and relaxing in the sun with plenty of fun and socializing. The staff and their service made us feel special from the time we got there until we left. One of the main pool bartenders remembered my husband’s special order drink every time. Jasmin took good care of our room and left sweet notes with fun towel creations. I will especially miss Nertashe. I feel like I have a personal friend back in St. Lucia. It was a dream vacation!
