Sandals St. Lucia and electrical outlets

Hey ladies! I am leaving soon to head out on my honemoon and I'm trying to figure out if the sandals resorts in St. Lucia have 110 outlets that can support a hair dryer and hair straightener?? I don't know what I need to buy and what they'll have there. I read that they have hair dryers there but I NEED a straightener too. I called them and they were no help at all.... please help!!!

Take a voltage converter just to be on the safe side.

St. Lucia is 220v...


 


And for a straightener-- DO NOT USE A CONVERTER!!!!!


 


It does not change the voltage-- just the plug. And I have had a first hand account of watching my $200 flat iron-- literrally melt away. The plastic seriously just melts away!!!!


 


For the rest of my 220v travels. I got the GHD universal styler, that senses the the incoming voltage- and adjusts correctly. Expensive, but its been WELL WORTH the investment!

I believe that Jamaica has outlets in many places that are the same size as outlets in the US, but they actually have different currency than we do (the US runs on 60htz currency and Jamaica runs on 50htz currency).  Running appliances on the wrong currency can cause them to not work properly or be damaged (overheat, stop working, etc).  Some may work properly, but some might not, it just depends on the sensitivity of the appliance.
