My husband and I were lucky enough to stay here for the last 2 weeks. It was the holiday of a lifetime. Everything exceeded our expectations. The St Lucian's are so friendly. The hotel staff take a real interest in your well being, and made every day a pleasure. The food is amazing, with plenty of choice for me being a vegetarian. Actually it's so great, we both gained a lot of weight in the 2 weeks! The AI package included various beach games, yoga, gym, walks, cycle trips, watersports, tennis, archery, golf tuition etc. You choose how much or how little you want to join in. No pressure at all. You decide if you want to get yourself a drink, or just stick your flag in the sand and have someone bring one over. Many of the other guests were frequent visitors, and I can see why. You cant fault the place. The rooms have UK sockets. Plenty of REN toiletries. The beach towels are plentiful and really soft. Bubbly hour at 7 most evenings, with a pianist was a real treat. We tried the a la carte restaurant on 2 evenings. I didnt feel it was anything particularly better than the main terrace restaurant, and so wouldnt worry if its booked. You might just like to be waited on one evening rather than help yourself at the buffet. The spa ladies were lovely and the spa rooms themselves were sumptuous, but I felt the actual treatments were average, and not on a par with the UK. The watersports guys were really helpful, and taught us snorkelling, water skiing and sailing. The resort is couples only, and tended towards to the more mature, with a sprinkling of young couples getting married on the beach. The beach is public, and locals use the beach, but mostly for their own fun and swimming, rather than any particular touting. There is good resort security presence at all times, but everything is so relaxed, you never feel they are needed. There are some mosquitos here. They fog the resort once a week, but i would recommend taking deet spray and maybe a plug in device for the room. However, with a bit of vigilance and constant aircon, we escaped with only a few bites.

Room Tip: We stayed in a beach cottage. The decor is shabby chic, and probably in need of a bit of updating...

My wife and stayed for a week 15th to 22nd February. We had a first floor garden view room. OK a sea view would be better possibly but the accommodation was newly refurbished and first class. We could not fault this resort or accommodation. From the variety of pools, bars, restaurants available to the professionalism of the operation, attention to detail, incredible friendliness of all the staff, Rendezvous is a brilliant place to go if you want a chill out holiday. Oh, the watersports guys were also great, very helpful and patient with a rubbish sailor!! . We would definitely come back! Thanks to Angus and everyone.

Room Tip: Garden rooms, funnily enough overlook garden but more like rain forest, very quiet . Beach front bun...

If you want to find a perfect holiday that has a stunning setting, great food and drink for an all inclusive resort and above all superb friendly service then look no further than Rendezvous. All of these attributes arise from our recent first ever visit to this gem of a resort that grows on you a little more as each day passes.

We chose Rendezvous to take a break from all the stresses of living a life too busy in the UK and to slow down a bit and recharge. Even though we only had a 7 night stay in our beachfront cottage (just step out onto the sun drenched beach!) we felt the resort delivered everything we had hoped for.

As a diver I have to recommend the dive team especially Luis G who are great company and professional dive masters - the Marine Park is spectacular as is the wreck dive. My wife enjoyed water aerobics and yoga with the effervescent and somewhat evangelical Pauline. If you love cocktails and Champagne then you will be spoilt for choice at the pool bar and with "bubbly hour" each evening in the Champagne bar. If you enjoy the company of your fellow travellers then you will also be spoilt for choice. We met some wonderful people at Rendezvous.

The best recommendation we can give is that we returned home and rebooked another week in November this year with our son and his fiancé - something we very rarely do in returning to the same resort as we love travelling to different places around the world but Rendezvous is addictive and we just want another chance to enjoy it some more!

Room Tip: There is no such thing as a poor room at Rendezvous but we stayed in a beachfront cottage (150) whic...

We were fortunate enough to holiday and get married here last week. What a place.

The whole experience - from the fabulous staff to the room, the setting and facilities - conspired to make our stay the most relaxed holiday of our lives. We had concerns about going all inclusive having never done so before, but our fears were proven misplaced with a diverse, fresh, creative and authentic food offering to suit all tastes and satisfy every craving. The drinks were plentiful and the inclusive package of pastimes and water sports were enough to keep us entertained. Most of our time was spent in blissful relaxation by the pool, on the beach and in the secret lazy river garden, rum punch in hand.

And what about our wedding? Wow. The ceremony and the planning was all included in our package (minimum 7 nights in a verandah suite or higher to qualify), with extras such as photography, flowers etc at an additional fee. We were looked after by Sandra, the Rendezvous wedding consultant, and boy were we looked after. She was wonderful! Our every need was met and surpassed, with personal and completely unexpected touches adding to the magic of our stay. Planning a small wedding? Have it here.

We were delighted with our week at the Rendezvous. We would like to extend our gratitude to all of the staff who played a part in our special week, especially Sandra, Dean and Webster. Thank you all, and we will be back. Soon. JM & MM

Room Tip: Definitely worth upgrading from a garden view suite to a verandah or seaside suite!

We stayed here for 1 week, I must say, I was taken aback by how beautiful the grounds were.
So well taken care of, so clean, so green. Just tranquil.
The Entertainment staff is amazing (Clavi, Webster, Josie, Pauline) amazing young group.
The food is great. For such a small island, I was amazed at the freshness & Quality of the food.
Whether you ate on the terrace or at the Trysting, the staff is super nice, polite, and friendly.
(Book at least 48hrs in advance to make sure you get your preferred night)
They also have a Champagne Bar lounge, which was included in our all inclusive package.
We are not Champagne drinkers, but just to say.
If you are planning on visiting, keep in mind, (my personal opinion of course) the "Majority" of people who stay here are "much" older.

Room Tip: If you choose beachfront,(which is ground level) you really hear the crickets & tadpoles all nig...

Stayed at the resort Feb 24-Mar 3. A small intimate resort, where you never have to even consider saving a lounger. The low density population the resort adheres to, makes for the best stay I have ever had. The staff were excellent, attentive, and friendly always.Got my PADI open water certificate from their dive shop. A very safety concious staff and very professionally run.
Food in the Trystan restaurant was fine dining like at home, and the service surpassed what I am used to expecting here in Canada.The staff are educated, cultured, friendly people who anticipate your every need.I don't usually return to the same resort because I like variety, but in this case I will be making an exception to the rule!I highly recommend this resort.

This is an amazing place! It is by far the most relaxing vacation we have ever had. We have visited most Carribean Islands and decided on Saint Lucia for its beauty. Rendezvous does it right. The employees could not have tried harder to do a better job, be happy and make it a truly amazzing experience. We would rate this place 5 star*

Room Tip: The beach cottages are quite and very private!
