We flew non-stop via Jet Blue out of Boston and spent 7 nights at the Piton's Waters Edge Two Story Butler Suite at Sandals Regency La Toc Golf Resort & Spa in Saint Lucia.
The suite was simply amazing with a beautiful view of the ocean from both the upper and lower balcony. In the distance we could see the mountains of Martinique. The sound of the crashing waves were so relaxing and peaceful....Heaven! A few days a week the cruise ships would pass through to their port, loved watching them arrive and leave from our balcony.
We had friends that were on a 12 day cruise and we picked them up a day pass....what a great time we had! They enjoyed their first taste of a couples only 4 and 5 star all-inclusive land resort. Hopefully in the future, they'll be enjoying more land than sea resorts. :)
The ocean at La Toc can be quite rough. However, this is one of the reasons that we booked our vacation at La Toc in lieu of the Halcyon or the Grande, my husband and I love big, active waves and we spent a lot of our time playing in them. When we tired of that, we hung out in the swimming pools sipping on cocktails or on our balcony enjoying the awesome views.
The staff was super outgoing and friendly, our butlers Kayson and Clayma knew how low key we are and they were just fantastic. The food, restaurants, cocktails were wonderful and as always, we end up returning home with a few added pounds.
With the Sandal's Resorts, stay at one, play at three, we visited both Sandals Grande St. Lucian, and Sandals Halcyon and enjoyed spending time at both. I found Sandals Halcyon very low key, relaxing and quiet. While I'm not one to spend time on a lounger, I could have spent the entire day on that lounger, love the quietness of the gentle waves along with the view of the ocean.
Nearing the end of our stay, we booked the Island Routes, Piton Sunset Catamaran Cruise. Wow! The beauty of the island as we sailed to the Piton's was breathtaking. The beautiful, lush mountains, the homes built into the mountains, the Piton's, and finally the beautiful sunset were sights that soon will not be forgotten
While I adore every Sandal's Resort, this was easily one of my favorites, those waves played a big part. :) We will return in the near future.
