Wonderful... best vacation everfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Fantastic holidayfrom Marengo1
Special mention goes to Pauline, one of the Co-ordinators who made aquafit and tai chi such fun. We last visited St Lucia 24 years ago (though a different hotel) and were pleasantly surprised to see how things have moved on without spoiling this beautiful island. One huge improvement was the quality and choice of the food - both the buffet restaurant and especially the Trysting Place at the hotel were excellent. We would certainly return again.

For those not getting married: The resort is gorgeous! We had an oceanfront room, and it was unbelievable. I highly recommend the room upgrade.
Perfect Chill Out Holidayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Everything about the resort is perfect.You are made welcome from start to finish,the staff cannot do enough for you, the accommodation is very high in standards, the surroundings are beautiful and romantic, the food is just excellent, especally in the Trysting resturant. You can be as active or as lazy as you choose.If you want to chill out the surroundings are perfect, with beautiful gardens and pool areas, or if you prefer the beach, the hotel is set right on Malybar beach with plenty of sunbeds,parasols or palm trees for shade if that lovely carribean sun gets to much,and if you need a drink to cool you down, just put your flag in the sand and the staff will attend to your every need.If you want to be active choose from pool vollyball,beach vollyball,golf tennis watersports, archery, bikerides and lots more.If you are a diver you are in paradise.The diving is unbelievable, and the dive team are wonderful people and very very professional.They are Julie,Mikel, Paul and Ras.If you are not a diver the team will go through the basics in the pool and then take you on a shallow dive in the sea and dont worry they will more than take care of you.Have a go YOU WONT REGRET IT. if you still dont fancy having a go at the diving, go and meet the team anyway and ask Ras to sing for you, he is a star and you will never forget him.The Rendezvous is known as the escape for romantics and there is one sure thing we shall be going back there hopfully sooner than later!!

The atmosphere was so relaxed it was almost like being at a home from home - it might not have been a 5* resort, but it certainly felt like it. St Lucia is a beautiful island and the Rendezvous is a great resort for couples. This wasn't our first all inclusive holiday, but has certainly been the best!!
RAHNDAYVOO of LUV, BABEEfrom ilikestotravel
Positives: First stay at an all-inclusive so no longer fit any of my pants, the food was that good. Was worried only two dining options would limit food choices, but was way wrong- everyday buffet had new menu and the formal restaurant changed every 3 days. Stayed in a very spacious, clean and cool room with a verandah, tastefully decorated, not necessary to get oceanview (actually closer to pool then ocean).
Staff were warm and very accomodating and will make it easy to participate in the many resort activities. FREE INTRO SCUBA LESSON and water skiing, etc. Read that most guests would be stuffy Brits; only half right, mostly English but fun blokes and birds, special shout out to JON and PRIYA, see you soon!
Not-so-Negatives: Cemetary and airstrip next door, literally, (though 'da planes' gave it a fantasy island feel ), no private beaches on ST.
Lucia- so locals will be ever present (easy to mix with the natives, if so desire) due to close proximity of capital city CASTRIES (if you sightsee in the city be prepared for a barrage of taxi and vendor solicitors, and a palm reader named GimmeMonee), too many activity options provided by the resort, (my poor wife kept reminding me that we were on a honeymoon and not an activities marathon- sorry honey, love you ;)
TIPS: Fly into VIGIE/GEORGE CHARLES airport unless you want a 1 1/2 hr bumpy car ride (though by helicopter from other airport I hear is fun).
Bring mosquito repellant, if going during rainy season FEB-SEPT?
Prepare for sudden downpours. No TV's in rooms, but do have 110V for portable video devices (Nights can be slow.) Go to Rodney Bay for nightlife, sight seeing, shopping, etc.
Overall nice, cozy property, good deal for an AI, and plenty of things to do, be it of a sporting, relaxing, or romantic nature. Mention on honeymoon for free goodies.
Thanks to the kind staff of Rendezvous and the good people of St.
Lucia. NOW GO GET YOUR GROOVE ON...
Loved it!from travelmadgirl
This was a our 5th visit to the Caribbean and our first to St Lucia. I was expecting the Rendezvous to be good as we've paid a little more than we usual would for a Caribbean holiday and it wasn't just good, it was excellent! We stayed in a standard room over looking the beautiful garden and had no complaints... no TV but there was a CD player in the room.
You certainly get more for your money in the Rendezvous as we found out that virtually everything was included in the 'All Inclusive' package... even 1 scuba dive a day. There was plenty of activities you can participate in the during the day... or you can just chill out by the pool. There was 2 pools to choose from which was a good size but we felt it could have been cleaner, this was the only thing that let the Rendezvous down. By the way, the beach is golden sand not white sand as St Lucia is a volcanic island.
The Rendezvous has two Restaurants and both offered great food. We were impressed with the variety everyday and by Caribbean standard it was very good... definitely compliments to the Chefs!
The best thing we found about the Rendezvous was the staff. The staff were very friendly and approachable. Whether it was the bar staff or the gardners, they had a smile or a greeting. We also visited Rendezvous' sister hotel Le Sport which is a 5 star hotel. Fabulous looking hotel, shame about the staff.... they weren't as friendly as the Rendezvous staff.
This was a our 5th visit to the Caribbean and our first to St Lucia.
Overall, we loved it. The island itself is so lush and beautiful with such friendly people. The Rendezvous certainly helped in making our holiday enjoyable and we definitely plan to go back there.
Finally, go and try it for yourself.... reading the reviews will not compare to your own experience!
Top Local Tips for Castries
HELICOPTER TRANSFER GET THE HELICOPTER RIDE BACK TO THE AIRPORT AT THE END OF YOUR HOLIDAY
Use Common Sence Take the taxis, but get a set rate in advance. Don't buy anything for the first price asked of you. Use caution, you are not at home unless you live here.
Ben's Taxi provided superior service Althoug I contacted several companies prior to arriving in St. Lucia regarding their services and prices I was immediately impressed with the response I received from Cindy at Ben'sTaxi. I was able to arrange for them to have a driver at our disposal during our week in St. Lucia. His name was McGyver and he was every bit as impressive in the service he provided to us as Cindy was in arranging things for us. This company MADE our trip to St. Lucia a memorable one. Please contact them via their website at www.westcoastjeep.com or email them at email@example.com to make arrangements prior to your arrival in St. Lucia. You won't be disappointed with these folks!!
