You must try the Pier restaurant at Halcyon. We loved the Carribean restaurant at SSL but I can't remember the name, but you will see it(great views of the water from there). To tell you the truth we didn't have a bad meal at either of the resorts. Have a great vacation.We hired a driver from Halcyon to take us to tour the island. There were 6 of us, he had a cooler filled with ice, and we filled our water bottles with mixed drinks(courtesy of the great bar staff). The tour was from 9:00a.m. till 4op.m. We went to visit the pitons, had a wonderful lunch at Ladera, breathtaking views, botanical gardens, mineral springs, etc. Almost everything there is to see we did. The cost was 40.00 per couple, we also bought the driver lunch at Ladera and gave him a big tip. This sure beats going on an organized tour. They will stop when ever you want them to.

Kim,
We just returned from Sandals, St. Lucia
last week, and I can give you some free
advice.
Do not eat the buffet breakfast at the
Pavilion.Instead, go for the a la carte
at either the Pitons or Armandos.
The best meals we had were at Le Toq
and Armandos(Italian restaurant at
Sunset Bluffs).
If the crowded pool scene isn't for you,
the pool at the Pitons is very quiet,and
the on up at Sunset Bluffs is never busy
at all.
I hope you like walking up and down hills because if you don't want to wait
for the shuttles, you'll get lots of
practise.
If you are golfing, make sure to bring
shoes because they are really adamant
abot proper footwear(wet ground)and will
make you rent a pair.
Lots of people and ourselves complained
about the perpetual state of confusion
the staff was always in along with the
lukewarm food(always)at the buffet.
So try to eat at the buffet as little as
possible unless cold and uninspired food
is for you.
Beyond all that,all the minor problems
are sure better than returning home to
look at a snowbank(lol).
Have a good trip.
