We spent a week here as part of our honeymoon and we were so sad to leave this wonderful resort. Set in beautiful gardens, the resort had everything we wanted; lots of time and space to relax but with activities available too. The staff were so friendly and happy to help without being intrusive. Food and cocktails were varied and delicious! There was a lovely mix of people from a variety of countries and a variety of ages - lots of honeymoon couples but also people celebrating anniversaries. We left feeling totally relaxed and having made some lovely new friends. I cant recommend Rendezvous highly enough.

We spent a week here the first week of July for a wedding and our son's choice of location couldn't have been better... from the first greeting with a cool drink and cool towel to the rapid, friendly check out. This adult-only resort had something for everyone in our group (early 20s to mid 60s), whether we just wanted to relax or be active. Our most common activities were tubing, sailing, swimming (ocean and pool), jogging on the beach, volleyball, archery, tennis, dancing, socializing, reading, island tours (climbing the Gros Piton was a physical challenge I'll long remember, zip lining for the first time, snorkelling, biking), and soaking up the sun. The food was amazing every meal with something for everyone (tried goat for the first time; most amazing banana bread I have ever had), The Trysting Place restaurant was a lovely change from the buffet restaurant, and the food staff was conscientious in ensuring those in our group with food allergies didn't have a reaction. The entire resort staff was welcoming, friendly and helpful in making our stay memorable... especially when it came to the wedding which was performed in the beach-side gazebo. Oh yes, the rooms were spacious, clean, bed extremely comfortable, air conditioning quiet and finely adjustable, and contain a handy safe. Free internet service was available at various locations, including in the beach-side room. The local airport is a non-factor as far as I am concerned. An absolutely wonderful resort that I highly recommend.

If you are a couple, looking for a stress free break in a hotel on the beach with great facilities & staff, then rendezvous is a great choice. You'll find excellent food, all branded drinks and first class service. As the sailing, windsurfing, kayaks, tubing, wakeboarding and water skiiing is all included, you'll have plenty to do when you tire of looking at the lovely Malabar beach bay and drinking cocktails.

In the evenings there is entertainment every night, or you may to want to just sit in the air conditioned piano bar and drink champagne...

The hotel is just 12 minutes by helicopter from the international airport at Hewenorra (a little over an hour by road), a short walk from Castries duty free shopping areas, and 20 mins by road to Rodney Bay.

The rooms are well equipped (unless you expect to watch tv) and clean. The staff are fantastic, friendly, polite and efficient. We loved every minute of our stay here. Highly recommneded.

Room Tip: The highest rooms are only 3 floors up, but no lifts. Poolside rooms are all ground floor. Veranda...

Good location. Clean beach with salty, refreshing water.

Wonderful friendly staff who went out-of-their-way to make our visit enjoyable.

Incredible selection of fruits and juices for breakfast. Great, healthy way to start the day!

For your added comfort: A Pillow Menu!

Annoying, uninvited guests in restaurant area - birds - and inconsiderate guests who encourage the birds by feeding them whilst other guests are dining. I was there to relax, not be on constant alert for bird droppings!

Room Tip: Top floors over the beach are worth the extra cost. Try to obtain Room 348 for best view. Avoid room...

I will try and keep this short and sweet as some reviews can become a bit war and peace esque.

We stayed here for one week in May as part of our Honeymoon. We flew in from New York and from the outset it was clear just how good our stay at Rendezvous was going to be. We planned this to be a week of total relaxation after wandering around New York the week before and we were not disappointed. We were welcomed to the resort with a drink and were given a cold towel. We were then shown to our room. We were in one of the garden suites which have recently been refurbished. It was perfect, decorated to a high standard and very clean, no need to upgrade.

I will echo what other reviews have said, the staff really do make this place and I cannot praise them enough. Hands down, easily the best service I have ever received from anywhere I have stayed around the world previously. It really is exceptional, nothing is too much, they are only too happy to help and always with a big smile on their faces.

With regards to the food, we loved the buffet restaurant, so much so that we never actually went to the Trysting Place. Every night is different (7 night rotation) with a wide variety to suit even the most fussy of eaters. Please be warned, you will want to lose a fair bit of weight before going as you will be coming back with more than a few extra pounds!! Although there are plenty of ways in which you can lose those pounds while you are there. For the more active there is a gym and tennis court, along with table tennis and volleyball. The water sports really were great, I have never been to any resort that all the water sports were included with your package, and if you are inclined to do some every day then you really will get your money's worth with kayaking, tubing and sailing. As someone who had never scuba dived before I would definitely recommend the beginners scuba diving course. If I remember correctly they run on a Friday and a Tuesday so book early to get a place. The pools and lazy river are perfect places for relaxing. They are kept to a high standard and there were always loungers/seats available. The spa is another excellent facility within the resort. We were given a free couples massage as a honeymoon gift. There are some excellent theme nights at the hotel, most notably the Beach Party and Casino night, neither to be missed!

We also did various different excursions out with the hotel, all of which were reasonably priced and we felt very safe at all times. We did the segway tour of Rodney Bay, which was brilliant, the tour guides are fantastic and it's a great way to see the island.We also went on a boat excursion down to the Pitons at Soufriere which was excellent. This tour encompassed the drive in volcano and some tropical gardens.

The airport next to the hotel is completely insignificant, in fact I would go as far to say it was a positive. I do not know how often the flights are, but they are small aircraft and they fly directly over the hotel which for me provided an interesting sight. I would guess that there are maybe between four and eight a day. Really not an issue.

Cemetery, not even worth mentioning.

Really when reflecting on our stay here it is the staff that stick in our minds the most as the biggest positive. I could go on and name a whole bunch of them but if you are reading this then you are likely to be going there some time soon and you will find out for yourselves. A few that you will not be able to miss are Dino, he really is the life and soul of the party. I don't know how he does it, energizer bunny comes to mind! Some bar staff to look out for would be Maria, Shane, Eric and Trevor. All excellent at keeping your drinks flowing. A real credit to the hotel. I am finding it hard to not continue naming more, they are all excellent at what they do, from the reception staff to the gardeners and to the sports organisers.

Well this seems to have turned into a bit of a waffle. I would sum up by saying, we will definitely be visiting Rendezvous again. The sooner the better! And next time we will stay longer!!

Thank you.

How this hotel is not a 5 star I will never know. Good sized, spotlessly clean rooms with a really nice bathroom (the wife often looks for hotels with a decent bathroom) and the facilities in the room were top notch. I have been to St Lucia twice now and the other hotel I stayed at was good, but this was excellent. Majority of the staff were fluent in English and all wore huge smiles all the time. A lovely pool for the kids (we don't have any but we will be coming back if we do). The weather was beautiful everyday and I would like to say a massive thankyou to the Rendezvous for giving us such a pleasurable stay.
