Overview

Within walking distance of Pigeon Island National Landmark
Pricey room rates, even for accommodations with mediocre views

With sweeping views of Fort Rodney and volcanic mountains rising from turquoise waters, the all-inclusive, adults-only Sandals Grande St. Lucian is flanked on both sides by the Atlantic Ocean and Rodney Bay. Because of its unique position on St. Lucia, transport from the airport to the resort can be a bit bumpy. Despite its hard-to-reach location, this Sandals outpost offers more of a theme park village atmosphere than a secluded island setting, with an endless supply of restaurants, recreation options and amenities. And with the free inter-Sandals shuttle service, there are an additional 15 restaurants and numerous beach activities available if you tire of the property's five pools, scuba diving lessons and tennis facilities. Guest rooms and suites feature king-sized beds, stocked minifridges and shared or private balconies or patios. With Sandals Grande St. Lucian's bevy of activities, eateries and prime location just south of Pigeon Island National Landmark, guests say the resort provides a packed itinerary and just the right amount of relaxation. However, some caution that the room rates are expensive and that some accommodation views are subpar.

Frommer's

READ MORE 

The adults-only St. Lucian caters to a younger crowd that likes its entertainment loud and bass-heavy, but even here, Sandals has places where you can get away from the clamorous scrum. There's a luscious picture-postcard beach overlooking Rodney Bay; a large lagoon-style swim-up pool; and spacious, well-appointed rooms done up in 18th-century colonial style, many with antique reproduction-mahogany furniture, hardwood floors, and farmhouse beds.

Its signature pool with a huge tower and swim-up bar is the center of the action, a place where young honeymooners mix and mingle. Three other (quieter) pool areas, a slew of water sports (including unlimited scuba), a beautiful spa, and 12 restaurants, including an authentic British Pub, help keep guests occupied.

Lying on the northern tip of St. Lucia between the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean, the Pigeon Island mega resort extends panoramic views of St. Lucia's volcanic mountains. The all-inclusive getaway attracts honeymooners and couples for its relaxing mile-long beach and plethora of activities.

Perched on the narrow Pigeon Island Causeway near St. Lucia's northern tip, Sandals Grande offers panoramic views of Rodney Bay on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other. Couples – particularly young honeymooners and those getting married here – love this busy, busy, busy resort, the biggest and splashiest of the St. Lucia Sandals.
