WE arrived at La Toc for our 4th visit and I must admit, it felt like home. The Sandals Staff really made us feel welcome and got our week stay off to a fantastic start. We were pleasantly surprise with the room upgrade provided by Sandals and were amazed at the fantastic ocean views our room provided. During our week there we thoroughly enjoyed the dining options provided and enjoyed our conversions with Staff members we had previously met and new staff members brought on since our last visit in April, 2017. While there took advantage of the savings and booked additional stays in November, 2018 and April, 2018. While we have considered the option of staying in the US in the future, the dining options, room accommodations, St. Lucian weather, activities available and the Sandals all-inclusive package are too rewarding to pass up for us. As a married couple approaching the downhill slide in our 60's we still enjoy the romantic atmosphere for couples and the option of booking our trip including air travel makes Sandals the most convenient vacation to plan. As a Sandals Select Member we enjoy the Returning Guest Dinner and the opportunity to meet with the managing staff and their welcoming attitude. Additionally, we have met many new people from around the world which has also enhanced our vacation experience.
Paradise ... absolutely the best vacation we could have asked for! Before booking Sandals Regency La Toc we asked several friends and co-workers who had vacationed in the Caribbean for a recommendation where to go, and without fail they unanimously responded with "Sandals at St. Lucia!" So we took their advise and booked! And what a great decision it was. Our week in paradise was both relaxing and energizing! While the beautiful St. Lucian ocean views and beaches were phenomenal, the Regency La Toc staff was the exclamation point to the whole trip. We want to Shout Out to several staff but can't remember all their names, so here are some: Agnes at the omelette bar along with all the pavilion restaurant staff who were friendly and accommodating. The food was absolutely delicious, scrumptious, etc., etc., need a Thesaurus to express how great the food was! Mary, Mervin, and Kimmi from the Concierges staff were always available and helpful. The Cricketers pub staff was fun and their food and drinks kept coming! Lucas and Kingsley in the Piano Bar were loads of fun. Don't let anyone say Lucas can't sing, cause he's got some great pipes on him! As we changed our plans from one excursion to another, the Adventure Travel Desk took our schedule changes in stride always making us feel like it was effortless. The staff at the duty-free shop always had a kind word and welcome smiles. Judy, Toni, and Tracy were always helpful at the front desk! The staff who participated in the Carnival (Marvin, the young lady who was the entertainment director - can't recall her name, and others whose names escape us) did a wonderful job pulling the event together and making us feel a part of their awesome Friday fun. Justina at the spa defined the perfect body massage! More staff names that deserve a shout-out are Skiva, Sheldon, Maggie, Kereashima, and the drivers (Jonathan and Mel, and the first driver who picked us up at the airport) were fun and answered all our questions about St. Lucia culture and history. Keyz was exceptional on our Segway excursion, and our ATV excursion was the best! McGiver was the ultimate diver in our SeaTrek excursion! To all the Regency La Toc staff, we thank you for a luxurious and memorable time! We'll be back. :o)
We had an amazing week at this resort staying in a club level mini suite with balcony tub. The service was fantastic, particularly from the concierge team. Special mention must go to Marcus and Mary who, when my husband asked where he might find frangipani as they are my favourite flowers, put them in my room to surprise me! I did the resort scuba qualification and Simeon was a brilliant teacher, so calm and reassuring. Petal came on a snorkelling trip and greeted me by name a few days later, very impressive for a trainee. Sparkle in the spa was fantastic too - we had a couples massage in a pergola next to the beach and I had a facial too. All restaurants were lovely and the private candlelit dinner was superb. We definitely want to go back - for longer this time!
Feb 2010 we went to Sandals LaToc and met Mr Michael James. He was very cordial, professional and made sure all his guests truly enjoyed their stay. While we were visiting Sandals LaSource in Grenada Feb 2015 we happened to see him as he was there for a meeting. We hadn't seen him in five years and were not only surprised to see him, but even more amazed that he actually remembered our names. Think we will try to go back to see this fantastic resort as well as to see Mr. Michael James again. Sandals really hires very special GM's.
We had the best time at Regency La Toc celebrating my husbands 40th birthday. I truly don't know where to begin, we stayed in a one bedroom ocean view butler suite and our butlers were Tarra and Roger both of whom were spectacular, from their beaming smiles, helpfulness and caring natures through to all the little touches like leaving a bath full of bubbly hot water covered in petals to decorating our bed. A special thanks to Tarra for being so very helpful and arranging our diary of events and changing things when we needed to fit in with our SCUBA and golf. Also special thanks to Gem who was our stand in butler when the others were off duty, you truly are a Gem :-) SCUBA was great and James did his advanced whilst there, the instructors and boat crew are wonderful, special thanks to Damian, Nelson, Ali and Hiram all of whom helped with James advanced. Simply superb diving. Golf was great, we are rusty!! But we had Richy as a caddy several times and he is fantastic! So patient with us and also very helpful in helping us improve our game with many hints and tips, felt more like a playing lesson! Wonderful! Also would like to mention Andy in Colombian emerald shop, we purchased a TAG watch, he was the best salesman ever! And so friendly, even to the point that when visiting Gordon's restaurant at the Grand, we bumped into him and he escorted us to dinner! Just love him! The food was spectacular everywhere we ate, pitons was our favourite but we also loved the French restaurant La Toc and ate their twice, Maurice was wonderful here and ensured we had a fantastic dining experience (sorry if I spelt you're name wrong but we know from speaking to other staff you are highly respected and loved and have worked there a long time we thought you were great x) We had the best time ever, stayed 10 nights and didn't want to leave. A home from home. Love you all you are a wonderful team, thank you so much and hope to see you again.
A special thanks to Lum from the Water Sports Aquatic Center. We visited Regency La Toc for our Weddingmoon. We knew that having a destination wedding was going to be a once in a lifetime event with new and amazing adventures. We did not realize that this experience was going to be made so much more special because of the amazing instructor and life long friend that we made in the process. Lum's ability to teach us the necessary information to be able to complete an item off of our bucket list with scuba diving was unmatched. He opened up a brand new world to us under the water, and for that we will be forever grateful. His character and warm personality truly showed when he took time out of his day to join us in our celebration of becoming husband and wife. The memories made with Lum will be a treasure we cherish the rest of our lives! Thank you Lum for everything you have given us. Nick and Sarah Foley
