Sandals St. Lucia- Need legit advice

Jump to last reply

I booked a room at the Grande St. Lucian from Sandals for my honeymoon at the end of June and am starting to get a little nervous about it. At first, I saw a bunch of mixed reviews. I pretty much threw out the "perfect, best vacation i ever had" and the "worst vacation i ever had" reviews as so many of these are often fake. However, i'm starting to notice more and more negative reviews (especially on this site).
This is in complete contrast to people I've talked to. Everyone I've talked to (or friends of friends who have passed along information) said it was great. Then i get online and people don't like it.
We are both 25 and used to more or less budget trips from college spring breaks. We did go on 1 cruise and loved it- though i will admit the food wasn't the best. I'm wondering if people who don't like this place are used to true 5 star resorts or if they are legit concerns. Also, what type of liquor did they have? Jim Beam, Smirnoff, etc. is just fine with me, but i can't handle the really really cheap stuff anymore.
What are people's experience on this particular resort? I can still back out and only lose my $300 deposit.
