Simply The Best!
We first visited Rendezvous 17 years ago and since then have been lucky enough to travel extensively around the Caribbean and Indian Ocean but have always wanted to return to Rendezvous. We stayed in a ground floor verandah suite which was beautiful and surrounded by lush vegetation which made it feel very private. Our room was well equipped with everything you could possible need including REN toiletries, a generous supply of towels, chilled water and an ice bucket filled daily. The turndown service was excellent with lovely touches such as candles lit and music playing on your return from dinner. The large terrace was furnished with a double day bed, table and chairs and we enjoyed the company of a cat and her litter of kittens who lived nearby. The addition of the Malabar beach restaurant since our last visit is a great asset to the resort and we enjoyed several lunches and 3 dinners there where the food was truly outstanding in a wonderful setting with excellent service from all staff. We had 2 evening meals in the Trysting Place and we couldn't fault either food or service. We also liked the set menus in the Terrace with the 3 weekly buffets adding some variety. The lunch buffet was excellent with a wide range of salads and desserts, the Caesar salads made to order were the best I have had. The champagne bar is another addition since our last visit and really sets this hotel apart from others, what a wonderful way to start the evening listening to piano music drinking chilled fizz (a different one each evening - Cava, Prosecco and yes even Moet) constantly topped up by the lovely Sean, and also a great way to meet other guests. We alternated daily between the two different beach areas which had plenty of comfortable loungers and a constant supply of beach towels. The service on the beach was the best I have ever experienced and the staff are SO hardworking, even replacing towels and sweeping sand from your lounger when you are at lunch. A bottle of water in a chiller is provided as soon as you arrive followed by a regular supply of water, juices, ice pops, fruit skewers and cold towels. Special thanks to Denson and Tasha although ALL staff in ALL areas of the hotel are amazing, genuine, kind, friendly people and could not do enough for us. There are plenty of quiet places around the resort if you want some peace and privacy, we enjoyed the spa pool with large double wicker seats in the shade to escape the hot sun after lunch and also the unique lazy river surrounded by tropical plants with comfy loungers and chairs - there was even waiter service here! Rendezvous really does tick all our holiday boxes - no rowdy groups, no fight for sunloungers, no loud music around the pool, no pressure to join activities...just pure pleasure and relaxation with a stunning beach, excellent food and the best staff ever. Thank you to everyone, we have already booked for our 3rd visit next year and can't wait!
Fun stay at Rendezvous
We had the pleasure of recently spending five nights at the Rendezvous Resort. Overall the stay was very good and quite enjoyable. The resort itself is over 50 years old, but does not look it. The exteriors, interiors and grounds all have apparently been updated. As other reviewers have said, the resort is located at the end of the runway for the Castries airport. There were several departures of turboprop aircraft a day directly over the resort. Others have written that the noise was an irritant, but we did not mind at all. In fact, as an airplane buff, I enjoyed seeing the takeoffs. We were in a Veranda Suite room and were pleased with it. It was very convenient to the restaurants, bars, activities, workout facility and the beach. The room was spacious and comfortable. Housekeeping was provided twice per day and the room was always very clean with a fresh supply of towels when we returned. We did not experience any issues with the air conditioning, maintaining the room at a constant temperature of 68 degrees Fahrenheit (20 degrees Celsius). We did report two maintenance issues to the front desk - the stopper in the bathtub was broken and the exhaust fan in the bathroom did not work, but neither issue was addressed during our stay. Additionally, I looked at the air filter for the air conditioner unit, and it appeared that the filter had not been changed in months, if not years. The lighting in the room could be improved. It was dark in the bathroom area in front of the mirror and there was a vanity in the bedroom where my wife sat to apply her makeup, but there was no light by this mirror. The service of the staff was outstanding, from the Trysting Place and Malabar Beach restaurants (the service at the Terrance restaurant was a bit uneven) to the bartenders and the beach drink service (especially at the northern beach by the seaside rooms and cottages). We tried to do a few activities each day, including the morning body stretch, easy yoga and noontime aqua aerobics. Pauline led all of these activities and they were very enjoyable and good workouts. We felt that the dining overall was very good. The Terrace Restaurant serves breakfast and lunch buffet style. For breakfast, there is a station in the back for eggs and omelets. One oddity was that each morning, there was a sign for waffles with a variety of stuffings/toppings, but each time I asked, they were not available. There was always a good selection of fresh fruit for breakfast and lunch and a nice selection of salads for lunch. In the evenings, a seafood buffet is offered on Sunday nights, a Caribbean/West Indies buffet on Wednesday nights and the Beach BBQ on Fridays. I was disappointed in the seafood and Caribbean buffets, as I expected a larger selection of fish and seafood than what was offered. Our stay ended before the Beach BBQ on Friday night. The other four nights offer dinner from a menu. Dinner service at the Terrace restaurant begins at 7:30 pm. We ate two nights at the Malabar Beach restaurant, which requires reservations for dinner. We enjoyed this restaurant the most of the three. It was set on the beach with a heavy duty covering overhead. I had the fresh fish of the day on both nights and it was very good. The Malabar Beach restaurant is also open for lunch, with excellent fresh made sandwiches. One note of caution about the Malabar Beach - since it is on the beach, beware of the sand fleas. My wife was bitten the one night and still has the marks on her leg. I think I did see bug spray at the entrance to the restaurant the one night, but we did not think to apply it. We ate one night at the Trysting restaurant, which also requires a reservation. This is the only indoor restaurant at the resort and serves dinner only, beginning at 7:00 pm. It is closed on Sunday nights. The ambiance and service at the restaurant are excellent. However, we were disappointed with the quality of the entrees. I had a beef entree and my wife had a salmon dish. We ended up cancelling our reservation for dinner the last night of our stay. The dress code, long pants and a collared shirt for men, is strictly adhered to. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend the resort and we would like to return at some point for a longer stay.
We always said that we would never return to the same place for a second time however, we just had to make an exception for this place. The staff and the service that they provide is exceptional. The rooms are spacious and modern. There is a choice of 3 different eateries, all of which are good but The Trysting is excellent. If your looking for a laid back, peaceful, lazy holiday in the sun with great staff and a very friendly atmosphere, then look no more - this is the place for you.......... thoroughly recommend
Gorgeous trip to Saint Lucia
We had a fantastic time at the Rendezvous. A really lovely resort made all the better by the amazing people who took care of us. Special thanks to Gio and Nisa who worked tirelessly on the beach. Francis and her happy smile on a morning; and Sarah, Carmen and Desmond looking after us in the restaurants. Rumford, Yannick and Stephanie did a great job advising wine choices, as did Jojo and Cassie for our cocktails 😉 Diane kindly took care of us for our special Anniversary meal. So after having eaten and drunk so well, we needed Pauline and her team to help us work it off 😀 All in all a great break - we will be back !!
Wow What a place!
I absolutely loved this place and didn't want to come home. It wasn't the usual type of holiday I pick, but I thought I would give it a chance. I was not disappointed. You can do as little or as much as you want to do. I decided to do as much as I could, being a photographer. There were plenty of guests there that just wanted to sit on the beach all day, and thats fine, but I wanted to go and explore the surrounding area, experience the culture and meet the people, and I was certainly able to do that, as the staff there can organise the trips that you want to do. There were also activities going on at the hotel which I took part in. The staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Special thanks to lovely and helpful staff, Shann, Pauline, Simon, and Carman, to name but a few. Food excellent, service excellent, accommodation excellent. I shall go back again next year. :)
