We are going to Sandals Regency St Lucia. We leave Nov 1st and we are staying for a full seven days. It looks like one of you will be there the same time we are, how exciting.

we are also honeymooning in St. lucia; there are other all-inclusives aside from sandals, I find sandals very expensive; we stayed at an all inclusive at jolly beach in antigua and had a blast, much cheaper than sandals

 

sandals caters towards the americans which is why it is well-advertised; other resorts cater towards Brits who go to their colonies a lot

 

we are going to an all-inclusive in St, Lucia for about 2300 each; a little more expensive than our last trip which was 1200 each because it is our honeymoon and no kids

 

if you shop around you can find cheaper deals

 

we booked through cheap carribean.com–just make sure no kids

How far out were you able to book with Cheapcaribbean.com?  I’m looking for January dates.  When do you suppose those will show up?

My husband and I just went to St. Lucia for our June 2009 honeymoon and we loved it! We wanted to stay in the southeast part of the island for the best views of the piton mountains and let me tell you…it was worth it! We stayed at the Stonefield Estates and we were treated like celebrities…doted on, but a lot of privacy too! It was quiet but the views spoke for themselves. We had our own villa with a plunge pool, veranda with a table and chairs and hammock for two, garden shower and a four poster bed with a canopy. There was also a small kitchenette, double vanity in the bathroom, walk in closet and safe.

Stonefield has an all inclusive option, so check it out! Tell Ernie and Karan hello if you go…you will meet them right away! ๐Ÿ™‚

My fiance and I went to St. Lucia over New Year’s and we LOVED it!  We stayed at Anse Chastanet, and I would never stay anywhere else!  It was one of the best resorts I’ve ever stayed at!  It’s all-inclusive, but the food is amazing, the people are amazing, the rooms were awesome, the beaches, the view – everything.  I can’t say enough about the place.  We loved it so much, we thought about going back for our honeymoon, even though we’d just been there!

We’re going to the Sandals Regency Nov 7 – 14th…CAN”T wait!!! At first I was not into the whole cheesy, commercialized, sandals thing, but after speaking with several friends who honeymooned there as well as travel agents, we just had to go for it.  I have heard nothing but good things about the resort and the island.

We just got back from 8 days in St. Lucia at the Sandals Grande and we LOVED it! It was awesome… the weather was PERFECT, despite hurricane season it only rained once for like 15 minutes.. The natives were very friendly and the hotel staff treated us exceptionally welll… the pool was amazing, the beach was great (though a bit small). We also met a bunch of really cool people, which was fun. We learned while there that the Grande is the biggest, most lively of the 3 Sandals… they do a lot of contests by the pool, have appetizers in the lobby every evening, and generally attract a younger crowd than the other two hotels. We heard nothing but bad reviews of the Halycon, and we just heard that the regency was just very different than the Grande. I personally loved the Grande and would stay there again in a heartbeat. 

The only downside, I have to say, was the food. It wasn’t horrible but it wasn’t amazing. Josephine’s had really great pizza, and Barefoot by the Sea had pretty good food, but everywhere else it was just ok. Not horrible, just not the best. 

Also, not to be gross, but bring Immodium AD!! We were hanging out with 4 other couples a lot of the time, and every one of the 4 other girls, plus 1 guy, and my husband, got sick for a few days. Nothing horrible but upset stomaches and, well, the stuff that makes you need Immodium ๐Ÿ™‚ I personally didn’t have any problems but I also didn’t eat a lot of meat or use any of the cream they kept out. They didn’t seem to be very conscious of things going bad.. ie the cream for the coffee would just sit on the table all day, in the 90+ degree heat!! So I didn’t touch anything like that. It also could have been the water, or all the drinking, no one was really sure. 

Overall it was amazing and I’m SOO jealous of anyone who still has yet to go!! Feel free to PM me a msg as we literally got back this week, did a bunch of excursions, and would be happy to give advice!!

I know this post was started a long time ago, but just in case any 2010 brides are looking for St. Lucia ideas- We just booked our flight to St. Lucia for our honeymoon 10/25-10/31 and we’re going to be staying at Jade Mountian. They have an all inclusive package we added on (Total Romance Package) so when we get there it will be 100% worry free ๐Ÿ™‚

I have heard wonderful things about St. Lucia, except for the bugs. Can anyone who has been comment on the bug situation? My colleague said he got bitten a lot by tiny little buts that got through the netting.

a good friend of mine did St Lucia  at Sandals. They LOVED it. The only downside was they didn’t stay longer.

St. Lucia was were we got engaged.  It was wonderful!  We hiked Gros Piton and once we made it to the top he proposed. 

We did not stay at Sandals but I think you could not go wrong.  A couple we know, who was married a couple of weeks ago, stayed at Jade Mountain.  I don’t think they had any complaints.  I want to stay there next time we’re in St. Lucia. 

@ brwneyedgrl: I did not experience many bug bites I did however get stung by a  jelly fish.  It was horrible and left a huge scar but we got over it after an evening of me pouting and resting.

I also got engaged in St. Lucia!  It was amazing.  DEFINITELY bring bug spray or buy it on the island or whatver you have to do.  We burned mosquito coils at night but didn’t bother with repellent and the bugs still managed to get through the netting so we were itching and scratching for a good week after we got back. 

But couples we met there who used repellent were fine.  I don’t know what we were thinking!  Airport security confiscates the spray sometimes — not sure if its because of the chemicals or because of the aerosol or what — but if TSA takes it, definitely buy it when you get there.  You don’t want any itchy skin distractions in paradise!!  ๐Ÿ˜€
