So today we booked our honeymoon to St. Lucia and we will be staying at the Sandals Grande. We will be getting a swim up lagoon room.
I’ve read most of the reviews on here about the hotel. Any bees been there recently and took our room option? Any bees going there for their honeymoon?

We went there last May. It was nice. We had a goodtime. I debated getting the lagoon room too, but really, we were never in our room. We loved the Italian place and the place on the beach with the picnic tables. We also decided to rent a cabana on the beach for a day, one of my favorite parts. Also…I think the shopping excursion isn’t really worth it.

@MrsConnick: thanks for the reply. You had to rent a cabana on the beach? I thought everything is included!

@drod: Drinks and food are inlcuded (you can pay more for better wine). However, none of the excursions and extras like the spa, private dinner on the beach (totally worth it) and cabannas are included. There are lots of chairs, some covered, some not on the beach. Honesly most people were at the pools. We did the beach a couple days and the smaller pools on the other days. Just make sure you plop something down on chairs really early to get a good one.

Enjoy St Lucia, it is gorgeous…
If you have a chance, take one of the excursions down to the Pitons… go by ferry boat rather than by car / road if you can / have the option… (St Lucia has roller coaster roads that will make even those with iron stomachs regret that choice)
Ferry from Casteries to Soufriere is aprox 1 Hour… and the ride / scenery is extremely pleasant / beautiful.
Hope this helps,
