Comments The Sandals La Toc resort on St Lucia is very nice. The rooms were comfortable and had plenty of room. We only paid for a basic room and it was fine. We did not spend much time in the room so did not see a need to pay thousands more. There are several restuarants and a buffet avalable for meals and the food is fine. There is a Japanese and a French restuarant that requires reservations and you need to make the reservations the first day you arrive or you may not get in. Sandals is all inclusive and the diving is included. The dive boats are large and have a head. They provide all dive equipment, if needed, and the equipment is in good shape. The boat crew and dive masters were all great and very helpful. There was a day of really rough water due to passing hurricane. However, the dive crew took us around the island to an area that was calm enough to dive. The diving was very good and the corals were in fairly good shape. There was not a lot of big animals to see but there was plenty of sea life. The only negative I can mention is that an IPOD that we had in the docking station provided in the room was stolen. The resort security stated that there wasn't anything they could do because we didn't know the exact time it was stolen.
