Sandals Halcyon

Lush gardens and intimate, Sandals Halcyon couples-only all-inclusive resort is a favorite of those looking for a simple relaxed vacation. The smallest and quietest of the three St Lucia resorts, Halcyon has fewer facilities and is the least expensive. But in return guests get a stunning tropical setting and very attentive service. Guests can enjoy unlimited usage of the other two Sandals St. Lucia resorts through exchange privileges and complimentary scheduled shuttle and then return 'home' to the Halcyon resort.

Activities

Sandals Halcyon features three pools, the Sunset Pool is the main pool and has a swim-up bar, a second quieter Paradise Pool with swim-up bar located in the rear of the resort, and a scuba training pool. Although the pools at the Grande and La Toc are larger, the Halcyon pools are a very good size and fully up to Sandals standard. The beach is an open ocean beach and all standard Sandals watersports are available. While most guests would consider the beaches at the Grande and La Toc superior, the Halcyon's beach compares fairly well and is located in its own attractive tropical setting. Full range of watersports are included although the scuba and snorkeling boats are shared with the Sandals La Toc resort and located at a nearby marina, shuttle provided. Landsports include day/night tennis, air conditioned fitness center, basketball court, pool tables, table tennis, golf at nearby Sandals La Toc, and more. Nightly entertainment including beach parties and various shows are provided but more reserved overall as compared to other Sandals resorts. The Mirage serves as an indoor nightly entertainment center featuring live music and stage performances. Sue's Piano Bar is a piano lounge with a bar, sofa area, and flat screen TV.
