I see they have buses from around the cruise port to Gros Islet for $1.50 That seems like the way to go. No?
Sure, if you have a lot of time to waste waiting around, then enjoy a 20 minute walk, at least, from bus drop off to resort.
You're best bet for a bus us to walk into Castries and board at the bus stand. You'll want the one for Cap Estate. Board, wait for bus to fill up - can take a few minutes upwards of 15-30 minutes, depends on how many people want to go when you do.. Drive up to Cap with all the attendant stops along the way , usually around a 40 minute drive, give or take. Walk in from drop off by Pigeon Island, another 20 minutes or so.. On average, you're looking at around 1.15 or so hours to get there, if you're lucky with the bus filling up.
You could alternatively wait at the bus stand eight outside the port (10 minute walk or so) - when a bus wirh space for you and yours cones by, they'll stop. Considering it's such easy walking distance from the actual starting point, it will take a while to get a bus that has space - especially if there's more than one in your party. Once you do get a bus, same process above..
Is there a reason you're not willing to just get a cab? Is there a reason you're set on Sandals? If you're wanting an adults only all-inclusive, have you considered Rendezvous? It's 20 minute walk or $10 cab ride from the port, adult couples only AI..
Or do you just want a good beach with drinks and Food included? Head to Vigie beach, again 25 or so minute walk or $10 cab ride, great boardwalk with local eats and drinks at very reasonable prices - likely a whole lot less than you'll spend for a day pass at a resort..
Good luck, enjoy.
