The Top Caribbean All Inclusive Resorts for Couples: Review of Sandals Grande St. Lucian

 My personal review of Sandals Grande St. Lucian

I just returned from Sandals Grande St. Lucian and am already planning my return! There is just something about that island and resort that is like a magnet to me. I have discovered that I love lush, tropical, mountainous beauty coupled with turquoise waters and the beach – can any one relate?  I am sure you will agree that this is one of the Top Caribbean all inclusive resorts for couples for any romantic occasion.

The grounds:

I must admit, the grounds here are just indescribable. They have such a true beauty and vibrancy that also feels elegant, luxurious, plus refreshing and inviting all at once.  The tropical foliage that grows over and around the gazebos, the winding paths lined with palm trees and botanical flowers that burst with colors, the beautiful white sand beach and the dynamic blue colors from the pools and Caribbean Sea, just make you feel like you’re in paradise, the moment you step foot in the sun.  If you’re looking for something aesthetically pleasing – this resort will not disappoint!

The accommodations:

One thing I have always loved about this resort is that even the standard rooms here don’t feel standard. They are all over sized rooms with a sitting area and upscale furnishings. Of course, I am partial to the beachfront rooms here, so I highly recommend getting a beachfront accommodation if possible, but at the top of my list is the Rondoval Suite. Sometimes the price tag is a bit of a shock on this particular suite, but rest assured it is soooo worth it!  They are sold out often and I completely understand why. If you are celebrating something special, then definitely go all out and splurge for the Rondoval suite.

Some of you may know that St. Lucia isn’t known for their beaches, as it is a volcanic island. This beach is the best one plus it offers that white sand that we all dream of. The water is calm and a beautiful blue, the breezes are refreshing, and the view of the mountains and the boats from the nearby marina are an added bonus! If you are interested in water sports, definitely stay at this resort vs. the other two Sandals in St. Lucia.

What’s an all-inclusive vacation without fantastic dining options? The beauty of dining at the Sandals in St. Lucia is their dine around program. You will have several options at your fingertips here at the Grande (Seafood, Italian, English Pub, Mediterranean), but feel free to venture off – the transportation is included (just pay attention to the transfer schedule so that you know how much time you have).  Something that really impressed me here was their Culinary Relations Desk. Of course, with all Sandals if you do have any dietary needs, please just let me know so I may contact the resort before your arrival so that they are prepared. Upon arrival, you will meet with the Culinary Relations associate who will allow you to speak with the Head Chef to ensure that all your needs are met. In addition to this, the Culinary Relations Desk allows guests to set up their dinner reservations, so may I recommend Kimonos at either La Toc or Halcyon and Kelly’s Dockside at the Halcyon?  I almost forgot – Sandals Grande St. Lucian offers the brick oven pizza, fresh crepes and a café with cappuccinos and treats. Stop in for an afternoon “pick me up”!

I could go on and on about this resort, but will keep this a short and sweet review. I trust, without a doubt, that you will have an amazing romantic getaway for two at Sandals Grande St. Lucian.  I recommend this resort all inclusive destination weddings, honeymoons, anniversaries and vow renewals.  If you looking for a romantic and upscale atmosphere, an active nightlife, fantastic water sports, fine dining and luxury accommodations. Then the Sandals Grande St. Lucian is for you!
