Rendezvous in Castries, Saint Lucia

Rediscover life's pleasures—together, at Rendezvous resort in Saint Lucia. Set on a two-mile stretch of white sand beach with the clear, calm Caribbean Sea in the distance, Rendezvous is an all-inclusive, yet intimately romantic retreat unlike any other. A lazy river pool meanders gently through the resort creating small nooks and private hideaways in which to steal away, seven lush acres of surrounding tropical garden, and brand new spa offer endless opportunities to relax and reward yourselves with some well-earned pampering. At Rendezvous every level of luxury awaits with rooms, suites, and cottages individually designed to complement your dream vacation. Airy and bright, accommodations boast hardwood floors, comfortable furnishings, mahogany four-poster beds, and superior sleep comfort mattresses.

We didn't feel it lived up to the hype but there were some huge positives and some negatives too. Firstly the positives: the staff, without exception, are fantastic & offer the very highest level of service. The activities throughout the day are also excellent and could keep you busy from dawn til dusk. The food was also excellent - varied, plentiful & catering for most tastes/pallets. The no so greats: we had a garden view room which was nice, but on the small side. Hotel maintenance needs attention. We had no hot water for 6 days due to bolier problems. Whilst the hotel was rigorous with status updates it could not guarantee a resolution. Totally unacceptable for a 5* luxury hotel! They did offer a free late check out in compensation but I would rather have enjoyed a decent shower on holiday. Also the gym equipment needed updating..the treadmill cut out dead one day & sent me flying off the back. I only had a few grazes (unfortunately one got infected and needed antibiotics) but that could have caused a more serious injury. And finally the beach. Although it looks lovely in the photos it is not really suitable for swimming (and definitely not snorkelling) as there's a strong rip tide. Plus the beach runs parallel with the cemetery and the local airport runway...not ideal for a romantic walk! If you want to snorkel head to Sandals at Gros Islet or Sugar Beach. We would not return here but others who were staying and were not impacted by the hot water fiasco enjoyed it more.

Don't get me wrong there are many things that are amazing, but we did have some issues which helped to spoil the experience. We did the helicopter transfer, which is a must, you land after a 7 minute flight just 3 minutes away from the Hotel. The greats are the beach, the activities and the restaurants, especially the Malabar in the evening. I found the Trysting a bit dull and the service very slow, on our first visit it took 25 minutes to get a drinks, and we were in there for 2 hours. The people are amazing, they remember your name, your favourite tipple, and they did a good rendition of Happy Birthday to me at breakfast. The pools are good although the main beach pool looks as if it need a little bit of a make over, nothing wrong with it, just a bit tired. the rooms to the most part are really well appointed and close to everything, We stayed in a Beach Front villa (127), right by the pool and 10 seconds from the beach, so really handy if you need to use the toilet or make a quick costume change. The slight lows were the evening entertainment. on the Friday we had a Steel band who were excellent, but then it wasn't until our last night that the the Police band came in, when the place was really rocking, and it seemed that no one left to go back to their rooms. There was the local cemetery which ran along the beach, to be honest it was well looked after and not a problem, as were the occasional light aircraft from the local airfield. My biggest gripe is that this is supposed to be a 5 star establishment, but for the first 3 days of our holiday we had no hot water, for some it was even longer. we also had a faulty Aircon system, stuck at 18 degrees, so getting out of a cold shower into a cold room was not pleasant. we could not change it and had to wait 2 days for the engineer to do it. He then set it at 24, which was far to hot and we started to get damp clothes. we then asked for it to be lowered, which did not happen, instead they changed the thermostat and it did not work at all after that. We were not the only people that had this problem, as it seems the Aircon is fixed and you cannot change it. All in all, a 7/10 great place but a bit lax on customer service.

We researched many resorts before settling on Rendezvous for our weddingmoon and we were not disappointed. We were looking for a place to get married with little preparation needed on our side and Rendezvous delivered. Every aspect of the wedding was handled and all we needed to do was show up, wedding dress in hand. Sandra, the wedding coordinator was fantastic and took care of everything. We were not looking for any frills and I appreciated that she didn't try to upsell us on additional extras. We ordered basic decorations for the gazebo, haircut for my husband and my hair styled, photographer (our photos are amazing). We also booked our wedding dinner in the gazebo which we loved. What made it so perfect for us, apart from the incredible staff was the location. We booked a beach cottage and I highly recommend it. It's secluded, literally five steps to the sand with two beach chairs per cottage. We've definitely stayed in nicer rooms with much nicer bathrooms but we loved the location and really didn't spend that much time in our room. We also lost hot water the day of our wedding. They offered everyone complimentary massages but as we were leaving and didn't have time to schedule we received a small reduction to our bill. As the resort is nestled in a bay, the views are also just lovely and you can't beat hearing the waves all night long. It's not a private beach but that didn't bother us. There was a security guard at both ends of the resort 24/7 but we never felt unsafe. This is the friendliest resort we have stayed in. Most of the guests are British and 55+ We are a little younger and American/British. We made some lovely friends, some of whom came to the wedding ceremony which added a nice touch since we were there without family. We were also the only wedding that week so we were made to feel very special. My suggestion for Rendezvous would be to have someone, at least twice a day, clean the trash that is constantly being washed ashore. It really detracts from a romantic walk on the beach which you're dodging plastic bottles and other waste. Besides the trash and hot water issue, we loved every minute of our week stay and look forward to celebrating many anniversaries back there.

We arrived to a warm welcome and a fruit punch. I booked a garden room and asked for a top floor. I got exactly what I requested and it included a sea view, It was fully refurbished and very nice. However, as we were staying for 11 nights and had a lot of luggage, a bit small for us. The staff kindly showed us several rooms, which were all lovely but we opted for a ground floor beach front luxury room (147) it isn't the most updated but very roomy and we just really liked it. Pictures included. There were a couple of issues with air con being very cold but the staff responded immediately to our concerns. There is a turn down service every night and they spray the room with mosquito spray, take them up on this, we used so much mozzi spray during our stay, time of year?. They apologised for any inconvenience and gave us a bottle of bubbly. The Trysting restaurant is lovely and the quality of food excellent. attention to detail second to none. Malabar Beach restaurant again excellent service and food, Terrace restaurant is where you have breakfast, lovely setting,.so much choice and all dietary requirements catered for with so many gluten free options. They have themed nights so its not always a buffet and when its not a buffet you need long trousers for gentleman. My husband wished he had taken more trousers and less dress shorts. Champagne bar, every night they have a different champagne or sparkling wine but worth checking as some were great and its the place everyone seems to gather between 7pm and 8pm. they do serve other drinks as well. The main bar is a lovely setting and great for socialising. All cocktails are made from scratch, in other All inclusives we have been served cocktails made in a jug at the start of the day, not good. Here they will make you whatever you want and have premium brands. House wine also good. There is a swim up pool bar and a great main pool, although we tended to stay on the beach. the spa is very luxurious, they have special offers but its not cheap, as a reluctant spa user i was very very pleased with my facial. There is also another pool here and a "lazy river" worth checking out. The beach beds are plentiful and once you get your bed the staff bring you bottled water in a wine cooler with good qualty glasses, you then get fruit punches, any drinks you want, ice popsicles, more drinks!!! if you leave your bed they change your towels and this continues all day. cold face cloths, nothing too much trouble. The staff are the best we have encountered and they do not want tips, its fround upon. They seem to really want to make your holiday great. A big thank you to Geo, Guilford, Frances and many many more. The entertainment and daytime activities are there but not forced upon you. The last couple of days there was a problem with hot water, again we were kept informed and compensated. To sum up, I have been to alot of all inclusives but this, to answer my own question, is the best one ive been to in the carribbean. Its a lovely couples hotel and they want you to have the best experience. To mention the comments about the graveyard, airport, locals and horses. Yes to all but the graveyard is very quiet :-) seriously it stops other developers so we saw it as a good thing. The airport is not a problem and a welcome distraction. Locals, we are in their country and we only saw very friendly people, horses, so lovely to see a bareback rider along a sea front. If its not for you then maybe St Lucia isn't either. A tip check excursions online as well as through the hotel. On leaving we were given a cold hand towel and a bottle of water. A great hotel with the best staff and location. I would defintly recommend this hotel, you will not be disappointed.

We stayed in May 2017, and since then we have been trying to get some sort of response from the hotel and First Choice about our many complaints about our stay. To date they have just fobbed us of, hence this review being posted so long after our stay. I did fill in the Customer Satisfaction Questionnaire upon leaving the hotel and they did follow up with an email, to which sent I sent a complaint letter back to her on three occasions and to date it has been ignored We are very lucky and travel 3 or 4 times a year , and are in our 50's, so we consider ourselves reasonable experienced travellers The Good Points : Lovely staff, great weather, nice pool area and grounds The Bad Points : The property is very shabby, and I know most Caribbean hotels are a bit shabby but this property is in desperate need of a refurbishment, the main central area and bar are very old fashioned and the furniture uncomfortable. There is certainly no wow or luxury factors here. There is a local airport right next to the hotel, and although there are no big planes going in and out , there is enough noise to spoil any ambience We felt unsafe walking along the beach, especially when you have passed the large graveyard that is also right next to the hotel one way and the derelict hotel the other way from the hotel. We spent a lot of money on an upgrade to a Luxury Beachfront Double Room with Balcony, when we walked into the room, it was dark and musty, with old dark furniture and then on closer inspection it was very poorly maintained The wardrobe light flickered even when the door was shut, and shone through the door, this was mentioned to reception but never fixed the whole time we were there. I opened the window and then couldn't shut it, maintenance came up and stuck a screw in the frame ( see photo). There was no hot water for 24 hours upon arrival and again no hot water on our third day just as we were in the middle of showering. The roof/glass wall leaked badly during a storm in the night, to be woken up to puddles all over the bathroom floor. These all go to show their attitude to maintenance is lacking. There is a no mini bar in the room , and if you wanted a drink in your room, you had to go the bar and take one up, very frustrating as it was quite a way to the bar, and I didn't want to get any sort of room service just for a drink The main complaint about room was that we couldn't use the balcony the whole time we stayed there, apart from taking few photos of the sunset. The balcony is so small its unusable, with an unusable round seat that you can't seem to sit on or lie on with any degree of comfort. The balcony seat and floor was filthy with bird droppings. These were never ever cleaned up on any day, even after telling reception, the same droppings were there the whole time. Before management say that the room is next to trees etc, the balcony was never cleaned once while we were there. They did offer a change of room but they only offered us a downgraded room and didn't offer any recompense for the money I had already paid out. I also found out that if you upgrade the room when out there, it is about 50% of what I was charged by First Choice The pool bar area had a broken piece of cladding that fell of on our 3rd day and wasn't repaired when we left 11 days later. We met many lovely people on the holiday, but some got very ill with a sickness bug in our first week, the hotel sent a letter around about taking precautions We avoided this illness until I became very ill on the Saturday, 4 days before we went home, I was ill for 36 hours, slept for the next 24 hours and the couldn’t eat or drink for the rest of the holiday, My wife became ill on Monday evening and had to run out of the restaurant to be ill, she was ill for the same amount of time as myself but had to get up to fly home and with lots immodium etc she made it home We couldn’t leave the room for 3 days each We were still not right after three weeks at home This totally ruined our holiday and we didn’t eat or drink ( apart from water and ginger tea) for 5 days The hotel knew there was a problem as they issued a letter on the Thursday after we arrived, and again after we got ill and complained to the hotel. When there was lot of illness going around, they suddenly changed to bottle water, the glasses at the pool bar changed to disposable glasses and straws used but there didn't seem to be much other precautions, there was hand gel available as you went to the buffet but it was never enforced to be used, after my meeting with Yhasmine she promised that someone would stand at the buffet making sure the hand gel was being used but it never was. Some of the guests fed the numerous local stray cats from the table and then went to the buffet without washing their hands or using the gel, this is disgusting and should be stopped and I told the manager about this and nothing was done They didn’t take this illness seriously and it ruined our holidays I arranged a meeting the manager who listened to me ( my wife was too ill to come out of her room) but she just smiled and sent me on our way without addressing any of our complaints We also arranged a meeting with The First Choice rep , who wrote all our various complaints down and I told that I am following the complaint procedure laid down by First Choice, ie: complain to your Rep at the time at the resort etc. and I told her that I would be taking this further upon our return, We have done so with First Choice but they have ignored our complaints and have said that the Rep on site has not sent in any report and sent us a very patronising letter saying that we got ill due to the humidity and that we were unused to travelling. This is the first time we have complained about a holiday in all the years of travelling, so we are not serial complainers As with other reviews here, the Malabar Beach Restaurant was good but the portions were very small, Trystings was ok but a bit like stepping back to the 1960's, Buffet was hit and miss, some good and the some very bad This hotel and holiday does not represent good value and is very over rated in our opinion and is certainly not luxury, we went here with high expectations due to the positive reviews and hotel website but feel very underwhelmed with the whole experience Even before we got ill, I asked my wife if she would want to come back here again and for the first time ever, she said she No she wouldn't, and nor would I. and that just about sums up this hotel
