“Fantastic stay at The Rendezvous Resort”
Reviewed 29 April 2012

Upon arrival we were greeted by a lady who gave us our keys, room 221 Verandah Suite.
Lovely room, huge verandah with 2 loungers, table and a nice view.
We booked through netflights for the hotel with a garden view room. But a couple weeks prior we up graded direct with the hotel. Cost £440 for 2 weeks for the upgrade.

Breakfast was a great choice. Fresh fruit,cereal, salad plus cooked breakfast. There was always a chef to cook omlettes etc. Lunch was great, buffet with 2/3 chefs cooking fresh fish, meat etc. Deserts were great with a big selection. Dinner was pretty good but Trysting place was certainly great quality. Huge range of wine also.

Pools are great especially the spa pool. Loungers are really nice and comfy.
Bar tenders always walking around to see if you want drinks. 3pm cold wet towels are handed up. 4pm light snacks are on offer, small sandwiches, cakes, tea/coffee etc.

ALL water sports are free inc. scuba - IF you are PADI qualified. The team are really professional and anyone can have a try as there is a 2/3 hour try dive. Pool work and a safety DVD to watch them a short boat trip out to a small reef. Only 15 feet deep so dont worry.

Cleaners came every day, sometimes twice (7pm) if you wanted your bed turning etc.

We had no problems with the beach being public as they all are in the caribbean.
Locals were fine, no trouble and very friendly. Not begging or looking for money just pleasant people. Hotel staff were fantastic, especially the bar staff and waiters/waitresses.

Would come back without a doubt.

Room Tip: All rooms are great. Garden View rooms have been up dated and there are now Superior garden view roo...

From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff here. Many staff members had been employed at Rendezvous for 10-20 years which is a sign it is a well run resort. It was a nice size and everything easily accessible. When we were there the resort was not at capacity, so no lineups for food or trying to get a lounger. The grounds are lovely and well-maintained. Keep in mind the beach is public so can get a little busy at times. Also an airport is nearby so you will hear planes overhead. At first the early morning planes were annoying and then I listened for them as my wakeup call - time for a lovely breakfast on the Terrace. The food was amazing. We preferred the buffet to the restaurant as it was so nice to have dinner on the boardwalk near the beach. Clavi and Evan, the social directors were hilarious! Lots of laughs! We met a lot of great people- mostly from US, UK and a few Canadians. We would absolutely go back!

My wife and I had a 12 day break at this beautiful resort. The staff were were great, offering help when it was needed, and were always HAPPY and polite.The facilities were exactly what we needed to relax in privacy.The bar facilities were great particularly the pool bar.We had a garden room which was clean, and comfortable, and watching the hummingbirds from the terrace was a delight.We would both recommend the resort as a perfect place to relax and enjoy the beautiful island of St. Lucia.

Room Tip: Althoug the garden rooms were great it may be worth paying a little extra for the rooms with a view.

The Rendezvous resort exceeded my expectations. There is not enough good things I can say about this resort.
The grounds are beautiful and lush. The room was cute and clean with a nice view of the gardens and the ocean in the distance. The spa pool was beautiful and relaxing. The lazy river was fantastic! Find a little intimate spot along the river for pure relaxation. The beach was beautiful. The terrace restaurant was always good with so many different varieties of food to try. The staff were incredible! the service was top notch. The A la Carte restaurant was a real fine dining experience, again the staff and service were just amazing here. The evening entertainment was nice to take part in, great local talents, great music.

The resort is in a great location and only a 10 minute walk to the city centre that offers duty free shopping mall and local craft markets. It felt very safe to walk anywhere in those areas.
The excusion to the Pytons mountains and volcanic baths was definitly worth taking. Some amazing sceneries to see!
I'm only sorry i missed the festival in Rodney bay. The street festival they have every friday nights, where the streets are closed up and people dance in the streets. I heard so many good things about this event. Maybe on my next visit I will make it there.

Again I must say everyone on this resort was so pleasant, friendly, helpful, went out of their ways to make you have a great stay, always going above and beyond. I was so impressed by this. Management should be very proud of their team here!
I would definitly go back to this resort. It is pure bliss and relaxation and a perfect destination for a romantic getaway!

My only recommendation for anyone traveling to St-Lucia, if you suffer from motion sickness you may need to bring gravols along for the taxi drive from the airport to the resort! It is a very twisty road and they tend to drive very fast! :)

I am very much looking forward to one day returning to the Rendezvous Resort. Thank you to all the staff for making our stay such a pleasant one!

Myself and my wife went there for a 10 day break. Hoping for a quiet holiday in paradise. Well we weren't disappointed. The rooms are clean, refurbished and all you require. The staff were great, and took time to chat. Food was again excellent. Drinks were all top notch, don't miss the Champagne bar. All water sports are included, We learnt how to sail a catamaran. There's lots little competitions around the resort. Go for second prize! But you can do as much or as little as you want. No hassle from anyone.

We had the most wonderful stay and the staff of the Rendezvous helped that come true. From the watersports team to the restaurant staff nothing faltered. We met some great friends and enjoyed the perfect trip. We can recommend the sea view apartments and definitely do the helicopter transfer. Thanks to everybody at the Rendezvous.

Room Tip: Sea view definitely worth the extra cost, they are close to all the hotel facilities and have a fant...

My husband and I have just returned from a ten day break at Rendezvous- our first holiday without the children - and we loved every minute! As previous reviewers have said, the resort is not the lap of luxury but is a very good standard 4 star resort with a totally relaxed and friendly feel. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome by all the staff- particularly those in the terrace restaurant who went out of their way to provide an efficient, friendly service and even remembering that we liked peppermint tea with breakfast so we didn't have to ask it just arrived!

We had a luxury beachfront room which was just perfect the bed was so comfortable I don't think I have ever slept better on holiday! The room was kept spotlessly clean each day and the balcony with hammock and small sofa was the perfect place to relax after a hard days sunbathing!

We met some lovely people there and developed a great rapport with three other couples whom we spent a lot of time with. We all had a day out at the sister hotel 'Le Sport' at the north end of the island which was also lovely although more contemporary and bigger than Rendezvous. The food at both resorts was great although I would say there was more choice at Le Sport.

We took a trip out down the west coast by open top jeep and back by catamaran visiting the banana plantations, waterfall and botanical gardens. we also had a rain soaked morning at the Rainforest!

I even persuaded my husband to have a couples massage a the in house Spa ( which believe me took some persuading as he is not a Spa kind of man!) he loved it so much we had another on the day we left!

What more can I say, a lovely holiday with some great friends, and having returned to a wet and miserable UK I wish we were still there!!

Room Tip: From listening to others and from our own experience the Luxury Beachfront rooms are the best bet.
