The best Sandals Resort in St Lucia is Sandals Halcyon Beach, Sandals Regency La Toc or Sandals Grande St Lucian.
Sorry, I don’t feel comfortable with answering this frequently asked question with simply one answer. This is a very personal question, so the answer depends on who is asking.
Before I break the resorts down for you, don’t forget all 3 resorts have full exchange privileges with transfers included. You have 27 restaurants, 21 bars, 3 beaches, 2 golf courses and 10 pools to enjoy.
Are you a beach lover? If you like to take long peaceful walks on the beach, then Sandals Halcyon Beach is for you.
If you like swimming in the ocean, snorkeling, scuba diving, wake boarding, water skiing and all kinds of water activites, then Sandals Grande St Lucian is perfect. The Grande also has the whitest sand and the most scenic bay of the 3, which makes this Sandals Resort overall the most popular of the 3 for all-inclusive honeymoon couples.
All 3 have nice beaches!
Sandals Regency La Toc boasted the best when they built millionaire suites on the bluff with private pools and 180 degree scenic views from your own 3 story sun deck.
Recently Sandals Grande St Lucian took over the boasting this year when they opened the brand new over the water bungalows.
Sandals Grande and Sandals Regency both have many impressive suite categories to choose from. I especially love the Rondoval suites with their private pools and courtyards.
The bluff suites with private pools are amazing and not too long ago were the nicest rooms of all the Sandals Resorts. Sandals just keep raising the bar on incredible suite categories.
Even the smaller intimate Sandals Halcyon now has rooms with private pools and butler service.
Affordable Rooms and Suites
Sandals Regency La Toc is the biggest resort and almost always has the least expensive rooms. One room that we always recommend is the Pitons Ocean View with private sundeck. This regular room is located on the top floor of 2 story buildings and has a really large balcony and very peaceful central location between the bluff area and the main pool/party central.
Sandals Regency also has a very affordable suite with a private pool nestled in the gardens in the back of the property. The swim up lagoon room at Sandals Grande St Lucian is a nice unique room that is easy on the wallet.
Best for Golf
Sandals Resorts recently bought the St Lucia Golf Club which is an 18 hole championship golf course very close the Sandals Grande St Lucian. Stay 6 nights and golf with transportation is included at all 3 Sandals resorts. Sandals Regency La Toc also has an executive course on property. This is nice because if you stay there, you can easily get in a quick 9 or 18 holes.
Best for Explorers
Sandals Regency La Toc has 2 big advantages. First, this resort is the southernmost, so you are closer to the Piton and the rainforest. You have to visit the Pitons and I highly recommend you also visit the sulfur springs and get a nice mud bath detox. The second advantage is that Regency La Toc is closest to Castries, the capital where the cruise ships dock.
Island routes does a great job with St Lucia tours and you’ll find them in the lobby at all 3 Sandals Resorts.
Not to worry if you are at one of the other 2 resorts, you’re just a half hour further.
Best Sandals in St Lucia for a wedding
Sandals Grande St Lucian is the best Sandals Resort in St Lucia for Caribbean weddings. The resort is just a stunning visual masterpiece and a perfect backdrop for your ceremony. This resort even has an over the water chapel and a large enough ballroom to host a big indoor event. The beautiful beach is still the most popular ceremony location.
