A trip report would be great. What room did you go with. How was the food. How many "stars" would you give the resort? Would you go back? We're thinking about doing our honeymoon there in June, and would love any info. Thanks!

Trip report will be coming......in the meanwhile, we were VERY happy there. It wasn't total perfection, but how many vacations are? Food was very good for the most part, service was fine, resort is gorgeous - we would definitely go back. More on the downsides later, but nothing drastic. All in all a great experience.

I was at Sandals St. Lucia in September (St. Lucia is hot and sticky in Sept.!) and loved the resort. I saw several room categories (had a tour of the property) and highly recommend the Honeymoon Oceanview 1 bedroom suites, the Honeymoon Grande Luxe Beachfronts, the Water's Edge SUites, and of course the suites on the BLuff. I don't recommend the Honeymoon 1 bedroom suite with plunge pool - no view, road in front of you, for that much money do a better category. I thought the food and service were very good and the property beautiful. What did you think, Jeremy? I'd go back in a heartbeat. Casey, it's so perfect for a honeymoon - couples only, all-inclusive, romantic, great spa.

Which St Lucia Sandals? I would also like to hear the trip report. We are going in Feb to the St. Lucia Golf & Spa not the Halcyon. Your information would be much appreciated. Thanks !

What was the beach like at the Sandals Golf Resort? White sand and crystal blue water? It's so hard to tell from the airbrushed brochures!

I know the sand is dark from the valcano ash.

I just got back from the Wyndham Morgan Bay (wonderful resort, got married there too) and didn't see any "dark" sand at all on the island. All that I saw was beige and we boated down the entire west coast and saw part of the east coast.

Sand is NOT white, but more of a brownish color and perhaps grainier than the your classic white-sand Caribbean beach. The water is beautiful...very clear and a very refreshing temperature. However, the ocean is not serenely calm, there is a small amount of surf, so some sand is kicked up to cloud it occasionally. There are signs on the beach saying that sometimes they close the ocan to swimming if it is REALLY rough, but when we were there, it was a very pleasant and managable amount of surf. Not "rough" at all. <BR> <BR>Also, the ocean floor drops off pretty quickly to a depth of about 6 feet once you wade in about 5 or 6 steps. It's not your classic Caribbean beach, but a very nice one anyway....my wife and I prefer beach to pool and we were not disappointed. (however we did spend a lot of time in the pool also, since it is such a great one!)

We are going to Sandals St Lucia Golf <BR>with 3 other couples in February. Do you have any info on the day trips or <BR>side tours you would recommend? Is the <BR>bus ride from the airport more than 2 hrs? Is there anything you wouldve done differnt or taken with you to make the <BR>trip more enjoyable? We are freezing in <BR>Iowa this week so we cant wait to go!
