    Truly a Boutique Couples Resort

    My Wife and I just spent 7 nights at the beautiful Rendezvous Resort in Castries. This resort came highly recommended by Ruth at TripGuy Travel (Highly Recommend Using her) From the moment we arrived at the resort we felt like family. Many of the staff remembered our name after just the first or second day, checking in on us, making sure our drinks were never empty and truly doing whatever they could to ensure we didn't have to lift a finger on our honeymoon. The food was to die for. 3 restaurants all serving different fare. I highly recommend making reservations at Malabar for the toes in the sand experience, and the Trysting place for a fancier dinner (Men have to wear pants). The resort is the perfect balance between intimate, but not too small. We made friends with a number of couples, and spent time with them both at the beach and the pool, but there is also plenty of time to just relax and be alone. This definitely isn't a party resort, while some people stay up and have some drinks after dinner, the night life isn't something that you would get at a Sandals Resort. Highly recommend early morning walks down the beach, it is beautiful and virtually no one will bother you, and if someone tries to sell you something a simple "No Thanks" Worked in our experience. Cannot recommend this place enough if you are looking for great food, great drinks, personable and kind staff, and true relaxation.

    Only Place We’d Truly Return To

    Firstly, I’d like to say the person below who’s complained about the ships moored off St Lucia needs to get with the programme. Having been there at the same time I reckon I could pick them out of an identity parade as there was always something wrong (which was annoying if you ended up next to them in the restaurant that incidentally offers an amazing range of food for all tastes) and their review is, at best, clutching at straws, almost as if they’ve got to complain about something. Only thing I would agree with is the comment about the minibar. So on to our thoughts... Stunning resort, stunning location, stunning staff - it’s that simple. The staff go above and beyond to look after you morning, noon and night and the food offering never became tiresome. I’d suggest picking your Malabar and Trysting Place dates to coincide with what you don’t fancy in The Terrace but don’t miss the BBQ evening as that’s very good. We had a beach front room that was worth the extra few quid and were lucky to have a ground floor room that walked straight out onto the beach so again, we’d recommend upgrading. Don’t pay any attention to the haters comments about the cemetery and airport, yeah they’re close but I actually enjoyed seeing the planes go up and there are between 6 and 10 a day so it’s not like being near Heathrow and as for the cemetery, it’s got to go somewhere hasn’t it and you almost have to go off the complex to see it. If I had to find fault with anything, the watersports place is a bit disorganised but I think it just has an air of the St Lucian outlook to life and once I’d got my head round that it was actually okay. So, if you’re reading this whilst considering a visit, don’t listen to the negativity associated with Rendezvous, it really is something special. We always vow to go elsewhere as we want to travel but we will definitely be returning as it would want some beating.

    Dissappointment with Management

    I am writing this whilst still in resort. Everything that you read about The Rendezvous is true both good and not so good. The resort is lovely but a little tired, howevet the support staff are excellent and go above and beyond the whole time. I do not want to be unkind but our holiday was somewhat over shadowed by an incident which prompted my partner to write a formal complaint to the management. Two days later our complaint has neither been addressed or even acknowledged. Whilst this has not ruined our holiday we do feel that it would be appropriate for Ms Yhasmine Remy-Hylton, General Manager, to at the very least abide by the same high standards that she sets for her staff and communicate with her guests when necessary. Unfortunately quite disappointed.

    Fabulous Honeymoon Stay

    Just back from an amazing honeymoon stay at Rendezvous. Beautiful island, fantastic hotel and brilliant staff. Stayed in a veranda suite which is nicely decorated, kept very clean. ?? the Ren lotions provided! Staff are all lovely, always stop to say hello; the bartenders particularly are super friendly and make you smile. Food is fantastic - it was our first time all inclusive and I had low expectations, but the chefs are excellent. My tips for travellers: take advantage of the excursions on offer by the reps they are great fun and it’s no easier/cheaper to do it yourself due to high taxi prices. A catamaran is a brilliant way to see the beautiful island. Also try out the sister hotel for a day (The Body Holiday) by asking for a free pass at Reception; their Tao restaurant is out-of-this-world (you need to book through the hotel) and it’s interesting to go see their beach and pools (although personally I thought the layout and space at Rendezvous was better for a stay). I’m super picky, so just to mention a few reasons why I couldn’t give this hotel 5 ?? which I hope they take on board: showers should really be more powerful and towels in room larger (you have them by the pool and in your sister hotel?); the Trysting Place needs an update: very old school ‘closed shoe’ dress code just seems out of place, and why close curtains and hide the beautiful island you are on! Malabar is so much better but you need to do something to get rid of the flies at lunch. These are just small things in an otherwise unforgettable trip. Thank you so much - hoping we can return in future for a special anniversary!

    Very good but not 5*

    We have previously stayed in 5* resorts and unfortunately this falls short.Whilst we had an enjoyable stay there were some negatives.First let me say all the staff are truly amazing .I will not name individual members as they were all wonderful and they made our stay memorable. We had a Garden Room as this was all that was available with First Choice but intended to try and upgrade to a Verandah Suite on arrival but our room had such an amazing view of the Water Garden and sea beyond we did not bother.The room was smaller than we are used to however it was pleasantly decorated but the bathroom has no walk in shower only over the bath.Also without exception every other 5* resort we have stayed both in Europe and the Caribbean has a welcome gift in the room usually wine and a basket of fruit sometimes flowers and chocolates-nice touch that was sadly lacking here The location of the Hotel is a definite minus. It is off a busy noisy road with a cemetary and airport runway in very close proximity.Fortunately the planes are small and only a few a day pass over. Food in the Malabar and Trysting place is superb and whilst the Terrace is great for breakfast and lunch we found dinner on occasion was not so great. The a la carte nights were good but the buffet nights with the exception of the Beach Barbeque were pretty awful to say the least. As a 5* resort the fridges should be stocked with soft drinks, not just one bottle of water, also their room service is chargeable and ridiculously expensive for what is on offer . Resorts we have stayed- in previously room service is included in the cost. There are 2 pools and beautiful gardens but the pool near the beach is not particularly well maintained.Very often there was rubbish from the day before still around the sunbed area. The pool was full of sand a debris and the tiles around the inside edge were filthy. The public beach(no private beaches in St Lucia) appeared well maintained and was actually used by very few locals but what should have been a wonderful view of the ocean was marred by container ships anchored off shore because apparently they will not pay to dock in the port. All in all a good holiday and we will probably return as small couples only hotels are few and far between.
