Best yet

My wife and I and another couple recently stayed at Sandals Halcyon Beach and had a great time. We have traveled to other resorts in the Caribbean and this is the best yet. The dining was amazing Kelly's dockside had great steak and the staff was amazing. The kimono was our favorite for evening dining very good food and entertainment. However, we ate at The Bistro just about every afternoon the food was delicious and it was the best service thanks Nathalie! As far as the evening entertainment that was great as well. When you're looking for a good bartender ask for Jonathan. We had a fun at the swim up bar with the afternoon activities and drinks. The beach was well manicured and very comfortable and quiet for sunbathing. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The only downside to our trip was a few rain showers.

First time at Halcyon Beach

Welwyn, United Kingdom

last year we went to le Toc for Christmas and this year decided to try Halcyon Beach. On arrival the concierge gave us a quick run down of the resort and said that, as we had just arrived, he recommended we simply go along to the Bayview restaurant as we didn't need to book. Good idea we thought. We obviously didn't know our way round at that stage but we found the restaurant. It was shut. Now a quick check of the resort's own daily newspaper would have told the concierge that it was shut but he didn't check. In the end, it didn't matter because we found Mario's which also didn't need bookings and it was superb. On the first night however, and after a nine hour flight plus connections we just wanted to go to bed after dinner. Unfortunately the amplified "entertainment" from the pool made sleep virtually impossible. The resort is small and supposedly quiet. It is definitely small but quiet it isn't. The noise from the main pool carries around the resort and there is no escape. We went to the beach the next day and, unfortunately, it is right next to the main pool so the noise and amplified music carries on to the beach. It is not a relaxing experience! The beach otherwise is fine. The sea is cloudy as others have mentioned and it is definitely not for snorkling. It also means you can't see the jellyfish and I and three others that I know of, were stung. That is not Sandals' fault. The quiet pool has no music but it does have gardeners with extremely loud strimmers and blowers and they seem to use the afternoons to carry out their work. I know the gardens have to be maintained but maybe late afternoon or maybe about 9.00 am would be a better time. The resort really needs to decide whether it is a quiet retreat (which it claims to be) or whether it isn't. At the moment it is much louder than Le Toc where you can at least escape from the noise. It also needs a bar in which you can relax in the evening. Le Toc has a piano bar and a pub. Halcyon simply has the pool bar where there is no relaxed seating and where there is extremely loud entertainment. Conversation is not easy to say the least. There is a function room near the pool bar which wasn't used during our stay and which could be made into a decent, quiet place to enjoy a drink in the evening. The food was excellent. Kelly's, Marios and Bayview were all excellent. We never had a bad meal. On Christmas night we went to Le Toc (in Le Toc) as we did last year and, again, it was excellent. I think it's the best restaurant. A small touch but when we arrived at le Toc one of the receptionists came up to us and said that he remembered us from last year. He said that he had been on Le Toc's main desk and remembered dealing with us. We remembered him too. It wasn't sales patter, he remembered details and I was quite impressed. We also booked Gordons at the Grand and when we arrived the booking had got lost somewhere between the Halcyon's concierge who took the booking and the restaurant. Irritating but they fitted us in. As with the other restaurants the food was superb. In summary the restaurants and the food are excellent and so is the service. The "ambience" ought to be looked at and, in my opinion, Halcyon would benefit from becoming a truly quiet resort.
