2022 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best
Set on two miles of powdery sand, surrounded by acres of exotic tropical gardens, it’s easy to why StolenTime by Rendezvous tagline is “It's about time you introduced your body to your mind.” It’s hard to imagine a more alluring corner of the world for people to escape. A world away from the every day, it’s a uniquely relaxing island retreat. From the long stretches of deserted beach to the lazy-river pool that winds its way through quiet nooks and secret hideaways, every aspect of this all-inclusive luxury resort has been created to give adults the space and time they need to be alone.

From arrival to departure everything was excellent. The hotel, room and grounds are lovely and extremely well maintained. The food was delicious with a varied selection, Juanita the egg station lady was lovely. Every single member of the hotel team could not have been anymore friendly, attentive and nothing was too much trouble. A special mention to Liz, Tasha (Nice), Micheal-Lee, George and the activities department. Jojo, selling boat trips on the beach was friendly, professional and never intruding. We hired a speed boat for the day, crewed by OZ and Snoop and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. If you are looking for a quiet, restful, top quality holiday this is the hotel for you.

Hotel's Favorite
I have to agree with other reviewers that its the incredible staff that make this resort stand out above any resort that I have ever visited. They are all bar none friendly and go out of their way to ensure to have the best time ever. As returning guests we were invited along with other returners to the Trysting restaurant for a wonderful seven course return guest dinner where we were treated like royalty. I think it was hosted by Paula and her amazing team. All of the food during our stay was of a high standard as were drinks. We have stayed in three different room types at Rendezvous and all been very good. This hotel is perfect for guests who just want to relax or for those who want to be more active there is non stop activities to enjoy. My wife and I had some great tennis lessons with first class coach Danny on the not so first class tennis court (definitely not to acceptable standard). I also had a great time water skiing, one of the many activities offered by Nelly Shane, Shaun and the rest of the very professional water sports team. Thanks to all for a wonderful stay see you all again soon.

Unbelievably lovely in every possible way. Nothing is too much trouble for the amazing staff and concierge team. Constant supply of both healthy and indulgent food. Always available, but never intrusive, events and activities. Wine list could be enhanced, but that’s literally the only way to improve this small, romantic, enchanting and wonderful piece of paradise.

OMG this hotel is wonderful. Staff brilliant, nothing too much trouble. Food amazing. Our accommodation perfect. We had a beachfront cottage which was lovely and peaceful. Poolside suites are great too with gorgeous freestanding bath. Cannot fault a thing. I was very sad to leave and I think we will go back there again when we can. Loved the pool bar staff, they were always happy and interact with everyone. We loved them all. Especially Sasha (nice).

We have just returned from a fabulous 14 night holiday at this resort. We had a sea-view room which was very comfortable and being on the third floor came with an excellent view. Positives - All three restaurants were excellent, our favourite was the Trysting - The Beach Bar team Eric, Leece, Tasha, et-al were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them - Stephen and Olivia, the Sommeliers, where very knowledgable and informative - Sean at the Champagne Bar gave a great start to our evenings - Gio made our days on the beach very relaxing and provided regular drinks - All of the staff were very friendly - There was a substantial programme of activities every day Negatives - (minor but included for balance and possible improvement) - On our second weekend there was an influx of weekenders staying at the hotel including a big group, we couldn’t get a table in the Buffet restaurant until 21:15 and had a 45 minute wait. - We were charged $10 to draw $100 cash from concierge (10%) we thought the charge was EC and not US, had we known we would have taken the 15 minute walk to a cash machine which was free. - On our last day we opted not to pay $US 100 to keep our room for an extra four hours, unfortunately the complimentary shower rooms did not have any air conditioning making it very uncomfortable in 30C heat. - As the beaches are all public in St Lucia and this resort is close to the cruise ship port the beaches can be a little busy some days and there can be children around. The hotel can not do anything about this and the staff ensure that guests are well looked after.

My husband and I just came back from our first vacation in 3 years at this beautiful resort in St. Lucia. As many already mentioned, what makes it even more special is the staff. Joe, the activity leader, is one who made our excursion to the Paul Net nature trail extra special. We had sailing lessons with Nathan so that we were able to take on wind-sailing like a pro. I am terrible with names so I can't mention all of them but their smiles will definitely stay in my heart forever. There were a variety of food and meal choices. I will highly recommend the Signature Beach Cottage which is beachfront and very private. I hope you book this retreat on your trip to St.Lucia!

We had a spectacular and delightful 11 days at Stolen Time. We had never been to St. Lucia or this property, so had no expectations but were both run down and badly in need of a recharge. We got everything we could have hoped for and more we couldn’t have imagined. The property is gorgeous, the food spectacular, the location excellent. But what makes this resort extraordinary is the people. Every single team member we met was kind, warm, welcoming, strove to greet us by name every time, and couldn’t do enough to make sure we were cared for and happy. I have stayed at 5* resorts around the world (Four Seasons, Ritz Carlton, Waldorf Astoria, 5* boutique properties) and have never felt as welcomed and pampered and looked after as here. We are already planning to return. We did water sports and the snorkel/dive team was fantastic. Special shout out to Shannon, Nisha, Nile, Lincoln, Danny, Louveena, Vienna, and Miss Juanita. Thank you for helping us smile more and remember to enjoy life.

This was our eighth visit to the Rendezvous, which used to be our favourite hotel in the world. It has a lovely beach, great watersports, fabulous food and the best staff you will find anywhere. Special thanks to Shane, Gio and Kinsley. We always stay in beachfront rooms as they have a fabulous view of the beach and sea. However, it is no longer a "Couples only" resort. It now allows large groups. During our stay there was a large American corporate group (at least 30 of them) who were very noisy and ruined the usual tranquil atmosphere for other guests. Not sure whether we will return.

WARNING – NOT A COUPLES RETREAT! Be warned – This is still being advertised and sold as Couples Only – it is not! There is a distinct difference between “Couples” and “Adults”. When booking a “Couples” retreat you want: - Peace and quiet/privacy/a sense of exclusivity/something unique and special/quality time by yourselves/not having to contend with ill manners or poor behaviour. What you don’t want: - 4 days of unspoilt luxury, suddenly shattered by a large corporate group turning up unannounced, proceeding to jump the restaurant queue, strip the buffet bare like locusts, ignore the dress code – coming directly into the restaurant in wet beachwear with no shoes or directly from the gym in sweaty and stinking active wear, shout excitedly over each other in a vane attempt to express how important they think they are, congregate loudly at the bar area each evening and shout over the entertainment, take over the champagne bar and move all the furniture to accommodate their “Team building”, have several after-dark pool frenzies of whooping and shouting (despite being told a number of times to get out), charge around on the beach with games around the existing couples who are trying to enjoy a quiet romantic holiday, evict the existing couples from some of the restaurants to accommodate the large party. We had 4 days of heaven and were about to re-book when chaos erupted. The hotel tore the dream of a romantic couples holiday away from all of us. A newly wed couple’s honeymoon was ruined, many of us felt betrayed and an elderly couple (15 years repeated visits) were visibly distraught that their once tranquil haven had “sold out” for a quick buck. I get that COVID calls for desperate measures, but this has changed the whole atmosphere and ethos of the place – and not for the better. There are some positives….the staff are incredible, the food is incredible and the setting is incredible…the 2 stars if for the staff and I sympathise for them. Sadly this is all in jeopardy as it is now basically just an Adults Only and only akin to a Sandals or Royalton….but still at a premium. The manager was sympathetic (even compensating us with an exclusive meal) but assured me that all the tour operators had been notified months ago. Kuoni denied any notification and my daughter (who works for Tui) checked with head office who also knew nothing of this change….so someone is being economical with the truth. We were all sold a dream that turned to a nightmare. PS – we befriended another couple, also exasperated with events, who stayed a few days longer. They later informed us that the Hotel had then sold “Day tickets” to a cruise ship….needless to say hundreds descended onto the Hotel, with arguments over loungers (something else we’d tried to avoid) and bedlam ensued.
