Pampered experiencePosted Nov 5, 2015
Pros: Constant ability to find some remote, private spot, the wonderful staff, gorgeous grounds and gardens, quality of spa services.
Cons: Dinners. We found both the choices and the execution of dishes lacking, considering the high standards of everything else at the resort.
Location: The resort is a self-contained enclave with variety of things to do but a 20-minute car ride brings you to Rodney Bay, a "party town".
When we arrived at Rendezvous the first impression was not stellar but as soon as friendly staff found us, it was 9 days of total bliss. What puts Rendezvous experience into luxury category is the sophistication of how all the staff members treat guests, the constant offerings of things to do, impeccably maintained gardens, and yes, the gorgeous beach. From cold towels handed at the beach, daily champagne hour with live piano at the Champagne Bar, top shelf drinks brought to your beach chair just the way you ordered them, through fabulous spa treatments (tried them all), variety of water sports (sailing, kayaking, scuba diving, water skiing and more) and evening entertainment - it is a truly wonderful resort focused on quality. As much as we enjoyed the ambiance of all meals, the dinners were far from gourmet. Morning buffet breakfast and lunch, with daily changing menu, was very good. Dinners left us always wishing for better quality. We found Trysting Place to be stuffy and the food unimaginative. The Terrace dinners were actually better but mostly because the ambiance and availability of decent wine made the mediocre food forgivable. After a few days we left the resort to have dinners elsewhere, but other than the deficiency in culinary excellence the resort delivered a plush, private, pampered experience. We definitely recommend it.

A magical trip cut short by constructionPosted Sep 12, 2015
We were due to stay at Rendezvous for a long weekend and had two great nights and one magical day. Unfortunately the owners took the decision to begin emergency planned construction at 6:00am on the Sun morning which meant JCBs and diggers on the beachfront and an incredible amount of noise. Most guests (including us) were relocated. Such a shame as the staff were wonderful and the place itself was incredibly charming, I would go back to Rendezvous but never in the low season.

NicePosted Aug 16, 2015
Staff is amazing. The only.issue we had was lunch and dinner times are a tad later than what we are used to but not by a lot. Definitly take their taxi to and from the airport. It is a little more than st lucian shuttoe but so kuch betyer. We did the st lucian shuttle company upon arrival and were not pleased so we did the hotel arranged transport back and were very pleased.

Perfect Tropical ParadisePosted Jul 28, 2015
Pros: The room, pools, beach, food, drink, staff.
Cons: a TV in guest room and a full length mirror(wife insisted that I mention the mirror)
Location: Close to Castries, duty free shopping in town, pitons.
The Resort is well kept and the Gardens are picture perfect. The Staff, what can I say, Trista, Yannic and Carmen so very helpful and friendly. The food/drink very good quality. All makes for a great vacation.

Very good overallPosted Feb 18, 2015
Pros: Room, food, setting.
Cons: Service at Terrace Restaurant sometimes slow.
Location: Good sandy beach and beach views..Opportunity to walk into bustling Castries and visit Rodney Bay by local bus and onto Pigeon Island.
We stayed for 7 days in February including Valentine's Day. Weather really good - ideal for a mid winter break and weather pretty much guaranteed from previous experience. . Stayed in premium garden view room, second floor. Room very clean, good service, big bed and reasonable size with good view over gardens to the sea. Other rooms had bigger balconies which would have been nice but not essential. We thought food choice, variety, quality and setting was wonderful but sometimes the service was a little slow. We had a complimentary sunset champagne cruise on Valentine's Day which was popular and much appreciated. Many returning guests. Lots of activities that were available but we didn't use - staff not pushy- we especially enjoyed the warm sea, sea views, pools, lush gardens, cocktails and ambience. Also opportunity to walk into bustling Castries and visit Rodney Bay by local bus and onto Pigeon Island by water taxi (water taxi seemed a bit expensive but not a big issue).

Paradise - in Paradise! The Rendezvous, St Lucia.Posted Feb 10, 2015
Pros: Superb staff, excellent food, great water sports, diving and activities. Couples only.
Cons: We prefer the more relaxed evenings (i.e. not silver service). When in the Caribbean, we want to be in shorts, eating local food under the stars!
Location: St Lucia is a beautiful island, with a variety of tours and activities. The Pitons are a World Heritage site.
Our second visit to the Rendezvous was no less impressive than the first. The hotel is beautifully presented in wonderful tropical gardens. By all means go to the Botanical Gardens, but most specimens can be found in the Rendezvous gardens. The staff are fantastic with many remembering us from our visit last year. The food is overall excellent, although we prefer the BBQ & Caribbean evenings as they are more informal with shorts allowed. The restaurant staff are always welcoming and friendly. Likewise, the chefs are great. The water sports team could not be more helpful, helping guests learn and improve sailing, windsurfing and water-skiing. The entertainment staff work incredibly hard to make sure people are involved, without any pressure. The scuba diving is with well-maintained kit and the dive leaders are always willing to point out the interesting wildlife. One of the few truly "All Inclusive" hotels we have found. Perfect! As Arnold Schwarzenegger once said - I'll be back!

Fabulous Couples Getaway!Posted Sep 18, 2014
Pros: Very well maintained, beautiful views, excellent staff and customer service!!
Cons: We would have liked to have know that we were an hour away from the airport. When I called the hotel to confirm, they told me 10 mins & that was it!
Location: Depends on what airport as we were an hour away & were not aware so make sure you know and have cash for the cab. We loved the Pitons and views!
My husband and I just spent a week here and loved it! The staff and service are top notch - facilities are clean - beautiful views and lots to do. Food was great and fresh with many options. We loved being sailing daily, swim up bar, turquoise water, mountains, etc. We scheduled a private sunset cruise through the resort to the Pitons - definitely do the snorkeling and views of the Pitons. We went to the mud baths and one of the waterfalls, which was small, and didn't think they were worth doing. Loved the staff - Trista, Simon, Luigi & Lincoln. Ask for Tony to assist with any custom trips or items you may need. We were not aware that pants were needed and he took my husband to a local shop to buy some. Try archery, snorkeling, yellow hot sauce and the lazy river!
