Trip Report Sandal's Halcyon St. Lucia - A Definite

We had 2 enjoyable weeks at the Sandals Halcyon. Went there to be married and 24 members of our family and friends joined us.
This Resort offers not only top notch amenities, views, rooms, staff, and hospitality, but offers the entire experience - everything you could ask for in a tropical vacation on one property. My Fiancé…,now husband and I were workaholics when we arrived at the airport and left as changed people.
The food was incredible, gained 10 pounds at least. The restaurant over the sea was magnificent. The food and service were worth booking ahead, but even the buffet always had great food and a large selection.
The entertainment each night was well organized and super fun. There were Jazz bands, steel drums, fire dancers, and more. We thought we would get to bed early a few nights, but the entertainment was always so good, that we stayed up.
It appears that every room has an ocean view! Beds are super comfy, and I am a bed snob, as I sleep on a tempurpedic at home. My back never hurt. They were great about bringing extra pillows & blankets, as the air-conditioning works really well.
The wedding was a breeze!! Everything was done for us! We just needed to show up to sign the paper work and then show up on the day. We didn’t like the idea that we couldn’t have our choice of wedding photographer. We saw a few weddings before ours and didn’t like the way the photographers shot the weddings. Looked around online and came up with a photographer whose work we liked and hired him to take us off the Resort to take our wedding pictures. Our friends and family members shot the ceremony. Very brief affair anyway…didn’t miss a thing. Bill Mortley did a fantastic job for us! I’ll tell you…if you are getting married in St. Lucia…you owe it to yourself to get him – http://www.billmortleyphotography.com. I read somewhere that someone said he is a “wonderful ambassador for St. Lucia” and he really is!!
The tours are well worth the money. We took Bill's Land Tour from Castries to Soufriere and back. This was a very well put together tour, and our driver, also recommended by Bill was fun and very open and informative. We also got Clem to take us to zip-lining then onto Marigot Bay, Castries, and Rodney Bay. We had an amazing day with him. Bill came along with us and took photos. He did not charge for them. Zip-lining is a must do when you are here. Very fun!
What will also keep us coming back to St. Lucia and the Halcyon, is the wonderful service we received from each and every staff member. There are a few who really touched us deeply, and who will remain in our hearts forever. Everton, you are such an amazing person, and a wonderful friend. We will miss you the most.
