Yay!!  I’m so glad you enjoyed this!  We are staying at La Toc next July and I was skeptical about some of the poorer reviews I’ve heard from previous travelers to Sandals in general.  We opted for a room with a Butler @ La Toc at the recommendation of our Travel Agent, but are planning to resort hop while we’re there.  We heard the water is the calmest  at Halycon, so we will probably head there for paddle boarding! 🙂

 

Great pictures & glad you had a rocking time!!

@mrscali13:  It looks like you guys had a great time! Thanks for sharing! We went to Sandals Grande Saint Lucia in March. I ended up getting a sinus and ear infection. We only stayed 3 nights. I wished we could have stayed longer but we still had a good time. Beautiful place and nice people. Maybe we’ll go back on one of our anniversaries.

@mrscali13:  thanks for this post. We are going to the Grande in December for our honeymoon and so I’every glad to see this positive review. Could you tell me whether you booked our excursions through sandals itself or whether you went through outside vendors. 

We are minded to use sandals but I know their prices may be a bit inflated, but I think I like the security of booking them through the hotel. We plan on doing a catamaran dinner cruise.

We are considering Registering for a Sandals vacation for our Honeymoon – wedding is May 31/14 so we’d be going in June.  But we can’t decide which Sandals location! We want heat, sunshine & the best beaches we can find. Should we be heading to St. Lucia? I heard there is a brand new Sandals opening in December 2013 in Grenada, has anyone been to that area?? I would love info on that.. Did you Register at a regular store, as well as through SAndals? Or just Sandals? Thanks so much 🙂

@mrscali13:  Thank you for your wonderful breakdown! We are going to Sandals Ochios Rios for our Honeymoona and I am SO excited. We thought about doing a few things on the registry and some of our guest actually asked if they could buy us something for the honeymoon 🙂 

I am putting the candlelight dinner by the beach as a must! How soon did you reserve this outing?

@May312014:  I lived in Grenada for three years.  The hotel was there previously and Sandals renovated it for their purposes.  I have never been to that hotel, but went by it by boat a few times.  Looks like a beautiful property.  Their beach is located on the Pacific side which has rougher water, but the previous resort had a wall built in the ocean to break the waves so the beach was calmer, not sure if Sandals kept it.

June would be a good time to be there, most of the students are off the island so it won’t be as busy and you won’t have to fight them at the airport (it was awful, you had to be 4 hours early for a fight to ensure you weren’t bumped!)

Only problem with going in June, if you like lobster, it is not lobster season!  I loved the island and definitely recommend it, if you have any specific questions let me know!

I think we are going to Register straight through Sandals, however, we still can’t decide on a resort!!

@mrscali13:  Wow!! Thank you for sharing. My mouth is watering after looking at all the dishes. FI and I are going here in April for our honeymoon. Did you go through Island Routes for the excursions? What registry did you use for those? Thanks!!

Beautiful pics!! We stayed at La Toc. It was very nice. We went to the beach at The Grande one day and have those exact pics like you have of you two snorkeling. It was fun.
