Quiet Get Away

Posted Mar 27, 2016
We had a wonderful relaxing time. We are able to visit the other sandals resorts in our visit and were accommodated in the spa to shower and change for dinner; so we didn't have to go back and forth. This is the place to stay if you want quiet generally and still have the option to visit the other resorts as it is right between them; 15 minutes either direction to the next sandals.

Nice hotel and food but some admin issues

Posted Feb 15, 2016 on Hotels
Halcyon is a lovely hotel and the food was great. Overall it was good value booked through hotels.com and the food and grounds are lovely. Some things need updating for example the sun lounger mattresses are very old and grotty. Also the admin for the hotel is very poor. We requested to be collected from the small regional airport and we made the request 3 times, by Hotels.com, via the UK Sandals CS team and then when I checked in on line and despite all of that they still didn't collect us from the airport.

Pros and Cons

Posted Sep 14, 2015
Pros: Very clean and quiet.
Cons: Better beach chairs and later check out.
Loved our vacation there. Loved all the cats but wish they took better care of them. It's a beautiful resort but they should do something about all the people leaving things on the pool beach chairs and being gone for hours. Sometimes there was no two chairs together to sit on. Check in was awesome but check out was awful.

Very good resort with attentive staff.

Posted Jul 12, 2015
Pros: Very well maintained and good quality of food and drinks on offer.
Cons: Transport from the airport was not ideal and the vehicle used rather uncomfortable.
Location: In the resort was good, however other than arranged trips there was nothing else to do in the area.
Nice to have the option to visit/experience other Sandals resorts on the island.

Pros: The staff was very accommodating and friendly.
Cons: Clean the mold off the tile at the main pool. Improve the quality of the mattresses. Update the facility.
For the cost of the stay the room was not what was expected. It was a smidge above a Motel 6. Mattress was hard. Bathroom was basic, nothing extra. On the other hand the people were very friendly and everything you needed they try to help you with.

A quiet stay

Posted Jun 26, 2015
Pros: The paradise pool and bar.
Cons: Maybe some different entertainment choices but we did see some great performers.
Location: Great snorkling options out of the dive center. also dont miss the saturday food and craft market down town. A true taste of the local culture.
Great resort overall especially if you just want some quiet and relaxation. Not nearlly as busy as the Grand.

Beautiful gardens

Posted May 19, 2015
Pros: We enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere, Had a lot of fun at the pool where we participated in the activities that we offered.
Cons: The bathrooms could use an update. They were clean but a little dated.
Location: Did not enjoy the long, long ride from the airport to the hotel. An hour and one half up and down twisting roads. Was not much to do near by.
We had a very relaxing time at Sandals Halcyon. The gardens are beautiful, very well maintained. Pool area was quiet and relaxing. We were disappointed in the beach area as we are beach people. The other two Sandals had very nice beaches which we did visit.
