Had an amazing time on  the Caribbean island of St Lucia, celebrating our silver wedding at the Sandals Halcyon Beach Resort.  A couples only resort its ideal as a honeymoon destination or any romantic celebration.  Halcyon is the smallest and most intimate of all the Sandals resorts and this makes its atmosphere unique.  Truly the most friendliest staff I have ever known, nothing is too much trouble whatever category/ suite level booked..  The manager invites you to a cocktail party and introduces his staff to the guests, he’s a well respected and practical manager.   Just before a wedding he noticed two sunbeds nearby which had not been cleaned – he was on his phone straight away to the team responsible to sort it out.

Two other Sandals resorts are a short courtesy bus ride away.- The Regency and The Grand, so you can stay at one but play at three and enjoy all the restaurants and amenities at your disposal. The food was fantastic, gourmet dining every night in lovely settings. – plenty of choice with French, Japanese, Italian and of course Carri bean.. Our favourites were the Pier and Mario’s at the Halcyon. You could even have a private dinner on the beach 🙂

Many people here were on honeymoon, getting married or celebrating a special occasion – it truly is the perfect destination for a romantic holiday and the staff and service were second to none. We saw several weddings here but I’ll keep that info for another blog.
