Outstanding hotel. Stayed for 11 days in late July 2019
Most guests appeared to be honeymooners in their late 20s/early 30s or mature couples 50+. Overall, the hotel is very good value for money. Positives (many): The staff are excellent. Many took time to tell us about themselves, some have worked here for over 20 years. The hotel manager and her team made every effort to make our stay very special. Food quality is very high. Trysting Place and Malabar Beach restaurants serve outstanding dinners. Harry at the Trysting Place is a fabulous maître d'hôtel and made our evenings there very special The dive and water sports teams are fantastic. We did snorkelling trips to the Soufrière and Anse Cochon and were well looked after by Curtis, Luigi, Lincoln and Julie. The water sports team at the resort were great. I had sailing lessons and my wife thoroughly enjoyed water-skiing, putting many people half her age to shame! The 'Bubbly Hour' hosted by Shaun in the Champagne Bar was great fun and an opportunity to meet other guests over a glass (or two!) of genuinely high quality fizz. A pianist set the mood for this special time of day Our beach front room, while a little dated, was comfortable, spacious and just a few metres from the beach. Housekeeping was great. Our room was kept very clean and the room made up early in the morning Easy access to local buses for trips up to Rodney Bay for shopping etc. Hotel is set on about two miles of generally quiet beach for good walks in both directions Negatives (very few): The beach, which is generally quiet, sometimes had local young men riding horses bareback along it. This has the potential to be a hazard. We swam early most mornings before breakfast, never quite adjusting to the time difference from the UK. The water is quite sandy and not that clear.
Our third visit and it was better than ever! Since our previous visit 9yrs ago, the quality of the resort has remained excellent. The addition of the Malabar beach restaurant is inspired. Staff are attentive and friendly. Wonderful food, good entertainment which does not disturb the peace and quiet for those who prefer not to " party". Many and varied excursions for those wanting a break from the idyllic Caribbean ambience of the resort. We enjoyed the excellent water sports and fitness classes but all the activities looked great. This place is so good, I'm reluctant to tell anybody! We feel privileged and fortunate to be able to spend time here, a real treat.
We spent 11 fantastic days at the Rendezvous and it is probably one of the best hotels we have stayed at. The staff really make the hote, they go out of their way to make your stay as great as possible. We must mention Trista, Guilford, Fern, Gio, Jojo and every one else who we may have forgotten to mention, thank you all. We cannot fault the hotel and will look forward to going back one day. If you want a relaxing holiday and be pampered this is the place to go.
We stayed here after seeing it on secret escapes, our initial thoughts were it seemed too good to be true, but it was perfect! We stayed for a week in a garden view verandah suite. Our arrival was very smooth, with no issues, our cases were taken from the taxi straight to our room. The resort tour on the first morning was very informative. All of the staff were incredibly friendly and could not be more helpful. The room was spotlessly clean, with a good sized bath and separate shower, there is only 1 TV in the resort which really helps to unwind and relax, to make this better it would be even better if the WiFi could be turned off! The bed was enormous and very comfortable, I seem to remember during our online check in, there was a pillow menu, along with options to personalise your trip a bit more before arrival. The pool areas were very clean, only downside was that the plunge pool by the spa was closed during our visit. The lazy river pool is a nice secluded spot to chill out in, with sun loungers dotted along it. The staff around the pool would visit with drinks, fruit and cold towels every hour or so. Most evenings we went to the champagne tasting in the piano bar, this did get a little busy, but never too crowded. The food in all the restaurants was excellent, we felt the trysting place was a little too formal for us, but the food and service were outstanding. Our restaurant of choice was the Malabar beach which needs to be booked in advance, the fresh fish was a particular highlight. The main buffet restaurant was excellent for both breakfast and dinner, we also had the afternoon tea a couple of afternoons. The wine selection was pretty good and served by the bottle which is not always the case for all inclusive. The beach BBQ one night was excellent, with a good selection. We had a minor delay with our taxi to the airport, we never worked out if this was due to the hotel or our holiday company, but it was not an issue. One nice touch was the donation system which is used to support the children of the staff at the hotel. It is clearly a resort where the staff are pleased to work and always offer to go the extra mile! In summary, this place was beyond perfect - we have already booked to go back next year for a longer stay!
Third visit to this fabulous hotel
We decided to bring mum and dad to our favourite place to celebrate her 80th and 60 years of marriage. Everything was just great, from the flight, collection and transfer to the hotel. This was our third visit the staff and their care and attention was again first class they are all so caring and eager to make your stay memorable. At breakfast Veronica starts your day with any variety of egg creations, we choose lunch at the beach restaurant and Sara went the extra mile to make sure Leslie had every ice cream flavour which was fantastic. A visit to the champagne bar where Shaun and Guildford entertained us and kept the bubbles flowing before being spoiled by Carmen and the team in the palace. In between eating all the lovely food we managed to sit in the sun on the beach where the team brought refreshing cold towels and cocktails, or by the beautiful lazy river hidden away in lovely well kept grounds, where Glen continued to rehydrate us! We had a Verandah suite which was spacious and very comfortable the aircon was great. We have travelled extensively but never returned 3 times to any other resort......... need I say more . Thanks to everyone at the resort it was fab
