Myself and my partner spent 12 blissfull nights in sunny St Lucia. Throughout our stay we throughly enjoyed ourselves and would return again. I would like to summarise our stay at Rendezvous

Accomodation: We paid the extra to stay in a verandah suite, and found these to our taste. These are well appointed and roomy. They are well situated only a short stroll from the beach yet far enough away from the night time activities not to be disturbed, should you want an early night. I must add that these do not have a bath but come with a double shower with three shower heads.
Housekeeping was prompt and well maintained throughout our stay. When we found one minor fault we reported it and it was resolved via reception in a matter of minutes.

Beach: As many other reviewers have noted the beach is public and does get many local visitors on a weekend. This is not a problem as they are merely enjoying what is rightfully their's. Also they dont occupy the stretch of beach in front of the hotel.
As for the airport nearby this is no bother at all. There is maybe 8 - 10 planes throughout the day which are gone in a matter of seconds.
The beach is nice and it is a very long stretch, whilst the sea is not crystal clear it is still very nice.

Food: At this point I must add me and my partner are very particular eaters and like fine food. Unfortunately we did'nt find this at Rendezvous, and this would be the only dissapointment of our stay.
Breakfast is lovely and plenty to choose from either buffet style or cooked breakfasts.
Lunch is very boring and in the second week very much the same as the first. I also suspect that leftovers from the previous nights dinner are used for lunches, in particular the salads.
Dinner is hit and miss with certain theme nights much better than others. BBQ night was a favourite of ours.
The Trysting place was a major let down. The food was bland and un-imaginative. The exception to this being the desserts which were fab.

In summary we had a brilliant stay there and the staff really are fantastic, going a long way to making the holiday what it is. Especially Candice in the restaurant and Imran on beach service. The atmosphere is lovely which is created by the couples only rule. Which was spoilt by a large group of non couples there for a wedding, during our first few days. The drinks are addictive, the island is amazing. And there are plent of activities to take part in should you be very energetic.

My husband and I have just returned from a very relaxing two weeks at the Rendezvous. We stayed in a garden view room which was very comfortable and had everything that we needed including safety deposit box, iron and board, hairdryer (which is not the best but does the job) etc. The bathroom was the only area of the room that looked a little tired. The room was kept spotlessly clean with fresh towels every day and the bedclothes changed every other day. The A/C was very efficient. We had some laundry done which was picked up in the morning and back in the room when we returned that afternoon. For those coming from the UK you do not need a plug adaptor.

The resort as a whole is very well maintained, with people working daily on the lush gardens which are every bit as beautiful as the pictures on the web site! We walked along the beach in both directions and found it to be very clean. We had no problems getting towels or loungers at any time of day. We did not use the swimming pools but both looked clean. The bar was well stocked with branded drinks and the flag service at the beach was excellent. The food was good with plenty of choice and we enjoyed several meals at the Trysting Place. The guitar player there was excellent. We made our bookings on the second day for the whole 2 weeks without any problems and alternated the evenings we ate at the Terrace restaurant and the Trysting Place so that we did not have the same buffet twice as they repeat the menu. The menu in the Trysting Place changes every three days and we never ate the same dish twice. The service in the restaurants and bars was excellent.

We did not take part in any of the watersports or organised activities and did not feel under any pressure to do so. There seemed to be plenty on offer if you wanted it though. On the two days that it rained there were board games available on the terrace and the staff laid on some activities as well. We booked three tours through the Sunlink Tours desk at the hotel, Tout Bagay, Jungle Biking and the helicopter tour. We enjoyed them all and felt they were well organised and reasonably priced. The evening entertainment was also better than I was expecting.

We will probably not be returning to the Rendezvous, but only because we are the sort of people who like to visit new places. I would not hesitate to recommend the resort. The only thing I would say is that although we were not at all bothered by the small planes that go over (they are very infrequent and the noise only lasts for a few seconds) some people might be!

My wife and I could not have asked for a more beautiful place with any more friendly staff!! What a great vacation. The facilities are excellent, the grounds are beautiful and well maintained and the food was superb. We plan to vacation here again in the future. An all around fantastic resort. I would highly recommend it to any couple looking to spend quality time together in paradise!

My Husband and I have just returned from 2 weeks at the Rendezvous and although the staff were very friendly and helpful, we were not completely impressed with the hotel. The whole place could do with a lick of paint including the rooms. The rooms are very clean and the maids kept our room very neat. On the first Thursday of our stay, there was no hot water throughout the hotel and it did not come back on until the Monday of the following week, so 4 days of cold showers was not exactly our idea of fun. Then on the Thursday before we left the Air Conditioning decided to pack up in some of the rooms - again not much fun!
The weather was excellent even though it rained most days, but then that is to be expected in the rainy season.
There were some highlights to the holiday, Peter David the Golf Instructor who visits the hotel taught my Husband quite a lot about golf and how to improve his game.
The food was on the whole very good although evening meals were a bit hit and miss - but the Trysting Restaurant was excellent, and of course air conditioned so it made eating a pleasure.
Although we enjoyed the holiday, it was not one of our better times we have had, and I don't think we will be returning to the Rendezvous in the future.

We had a fantastic time at this hotel. The room wasn't anything special but it was spacious and very clean with lovely views over the gardens. From the moment we checked in until the moment we left we were treated like royalty. The staff were so helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. The bar staff quickly remembered our favourite drinks and had them waiting for us whenever we went for a drink. The food was excellent. and plenty of it, too much at times both of us had to go on strict diets when we came back. We sat every morning overlooking the beach and sea whilst we had our breakfast, you could not get a better start to the day than that! We had a brilliant time at this hotel. We have travelled extensively worldwide and have to say that this holiday is up amongst the best of them, if not the best. Will certainly return.
