“Can't Wait To Go Back!”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

As soon as we arrived for our honeymoon (January 2014) everything was amazing. The resort was clean and beautiful,the staff was friendly and very helpful, and the food was amazing. The entertainment staff, Michael and Junior, were very friendly along with the rest of the staff. They made it a fun experience at the resort. This resort also provides a more personal/friendly feeling where everyone seems to know each other. This resort provided a great honeymoon experience for me and my new wife and we are already looking at going back to Sandals Halcyon. We would recommend this resort to anyone because of the relaxing feel, great food, and an excellent staff. Can't wait to return!

Room Tip: Sorry no tip for room selection but everyone I talked to liked the room that they were in.

We were in November 19 til 25.11. Halcyon.
Pluses: very very very friendly people works there.
Beautiful nature, nice food, quiet and peaceful resort, suggest for couples who wants some privacy.
But sea in Halcyon is not so beautiful, so if u want to see peaceful sea, with white sand u should rest in Grande. If u like waves u should visit La Toc.
Definitely u should try everything what this resort giving to u.

We also had Most Crazy and Fun trip with Joe knows! Definitely u should try that if u are fun and young :D

Room Tip: More privacy - Halcyon Trip with friends - choose Grande or La toc

I am writing this review before I leave so all is fresh in my mind. After reading so many bad reviews I was worried. From the moment we arrived we found the staff very friendly and helpful, the food was very good, perhaps the room wasn't the 5* I would expect in Europe but was clean! quiet and well serviced. The negative comments about the drinks being smaller.... Then have two!!! Food choices being poor...... Then ask for something else!!! A holiday is what you make it, chill out and enjoy..because you can

We visited just after the new year 2013 and had a great time. The staff was very kind and friendly. We SCUBA dove every day - it was excellent! At this Sandals you have to take a shuttle to the boat dock, but it was quick and easy. The location was quiet, relaxing and perfect for a couple looking to get away and relax.

We had a very nice holiday at Halcyon Beach. The resort is quiet and very attractive and our room was lovely. Apart from those at reception, we found all the staff to be pleasant and friendly, anxious to ensure our experience was a good one.

One problem was the bus service to the other two resorts. We had not realised this was only a two hourly service which made planning planning a trip to the other resorts difficult. Also, it seems odd when paying Sandals prices to be charged extra for wi fi.

There is little in the way of night life at this resort but this wasn't an issue for us. The Grande and La Toc are probably better choices if this is important.

My husband and I traveled to Sandals Halcyon for a delayed honeymoon over New Year's Eve. Upon arriving at the Halcyon, the Club Sandals representatives were incredibly helpful and made us feel at home. They were consistently helpful throughout our stay and took care of all of our reservations. This reduced our stress greatly.

We stayed in one of the second floor balcony rooms overlooking the Paradise Pool and were very pleased with our accommodations. The rooms offered comfort and privacy as well as fresh beverages on a daily basis.

The staff at the Halcyon was incredible. They are the friendliest group of people we have encountered and made sure that we had a great time. Everyone from the waiters, managers, and front desk workers did a great job.

We sometimes had trouble finding spots at the main pool, but the Paradise Pool always had empty chairs. Regardless of which pool you chose, the bartenders made sure you had drinks at all times. It was easy to relax and enjoy your day however you so chose. There are cats everywhere, but they do not bother you. They tend to wander around and only come up to you if they think you have food.

The beach did not look like it does on the Sandals website. The water is not crystal blue, and the area is somewhat dirty. However, it was still quiet, and the vendors on the beach leave you alone for the most part. The Grande has a much better beach, so we went there on days we devoted to beach time and watersports.

The food and entertainment was also high quality. I highly recommend La Toc at La Toc and Toscanini's at the Grande as well as Kimono's at the Halcyon. The food at each restaurant was delicious, and we were not disappointed.

The only problem we experienced during our trip involved transportation. For the most part, the shuttle drivers (to other resorts) were great, but we had a horrific experience with one driver. After refusing to stop at our resort, he drove like a maniac and shouted at the remaining passengers. My husband asked him to stop the bus, and we walked back to the Grande to wait for the next shuttle an hour later just to avoid being in the shuttle with that driver. That experience was enough to ruin our whole day. Our shuttle driver back to the airport was also terrifying, speeding around curves on the edge of the mountain and passing caravans of cars on wet roads.

Beyond that, our vacation was a wonderful experience. We highly recommend the Halcyon over the other two resorts if you are looking for a peaceful place to relax. The Grande seemed to have more activities, as well as people, and La Toc seemed to be more for golf. Overall, we were pleased with Sandals and will definitely consider coming back in the future.

Room Tip: The second story balcony rooms were a great deal! Although they are among the cheaper rooms, we fou...

This is a wonderful resort with great food and service. Has everything from a low key pool to music at the sunset pool until 2 AM for New Years. Marios is by far the best restaurant on property. You can visit all 3 other resorts, the Grand has the best beach. Free shuttle. Great to be able to hop in a kayak anytime without cash and head out to the island in front of the resort. Wonderful staff.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the low 100s for a walk out beach front cottage type room. Very secluded and nice.
