What a wonderful relaxing destination

Jan 24th, 2020

Rendezvous is an absolutely fantastic resort. From the moment you arrive you feel more like family than a paying guest. Clean, tidy, friendly and brilliant place to visit. We shared our 21st anniversary whilst staying here and were treated to a champagne breakfast, al a carte anniversary dinner and another bottle of bubbles when we returned to our room at the end of the night.

Delightful stay at the Rendezvous!

Jan 23rd, 2020

We had a wonderful time here. The service was outstanding. Everyone was friendly, efficient and truly cared about providing good service. The food was excellent. The Trysting Place has a charming setting & I had the best salmon dinner I have ever tasted. We also enjoyed dining on the beach at Malabar. The Terrace had superb buffets with lots of variety for breakfast, lunch & afternoon snack time. Some dinners on the terrace were buffet style & some evenings a la carte. Hats off to the marvellous chefs at all of the restaurants. The food was outstanding. Our room was beachfront. It was always cleaned very well. There were always lounge chairs & palapas for us to use. The service on the beach was fabulous. The beachfront balconies are small & not private but I would not let this deter me from staying here again. I’ve been home almost 2 weeks and I hope I can return soon. I highly recommend this resort!

Excellent hotel -couldn't be faulted

Jan 20th, 2020

Well worthy of 5 stars. Just returned from a relaxing week at the hotel. The room, ambience and service could not be faulted. I was particularly impressed with the booking in procedure on arrival after a long journey. A quick introduction with the keys to the room in an envelope, shown to the room with the bags already waiting. I would recommend a high floor -we were on the third floor which was very quiet rather than a room overlooking the pool or beach since it is very private. Especial mention for Jordan [the fitness instructor] who was very friendly. Enjoyed my morning jog with him even though he was fitted with sand bags to slow him down! The two restaurants Trystin and Malabar were exceptional. We made a second booking at the Trystin it was so good. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

VIP treatment* in Caribbean paradise (*especially if you are paleo/AIP!)

Jan 18th, 2020

We are not usually people who would go all inclusive, but this place changed our minds! We loved our time at Rendezvous and would highly recommend it. I won’t dwell on all the positives though as I’m sure other reviews cover these, whereas I have a more specific experience to comment on. For medical reasons I follow a broadly paleo/ autoimmune protocol diet, which is fairly restrictive. Generally it makes eating out anywhere extremely difficult and not much fun. But I was treated so well at Rendezvous. I gave the head chef, Peter, my long list of requirements, and he really understood it. Other members of staff (Dawn and Veronica at the Terrace, Eli at Malabar) were extremely helpful too. They often made me special meals to ensure compliance, and would keep special food for me aside, in case I dined at the Terrace restaurant (in the spirit of a fully rounded review, I’d say the understand and helpfulness the one time we ate at Trysting restaurant was not as good). But my absolute heartfelt thanks must go to Shalil at Malabar. What an exceptionally talented chef. Each night I ate there he created a special menu just for me, and it was like eating in a Michelin starred restaurant with a menu designed especially for my requirements. One night he managed to bake a delicious cake for me (good cake that actually tastes of cake being something I haven’t been able to eat for some time) and it actually made me cry I was so touched and it tasted so amazing. I cannot thank him enough, for some of the best meals of my life, but also for treating my requirements like an exciting challenge rather than a huge inconvenience. So if you are following AIP or paleo and are wondering if there is a resort in the Caribbean where you won’t starve, go to Rendezvous and feast! Equally, if you have other dietary requirements eg gluten free or lactose free, most buffet items are clearly labelled, and if you’re unsure you can always ask, and staff do understand cross contamination issues etc. One final and unrelated point to make in case others considering booking have the same thoughts I had: before we went I was a little worried about noise and air pollution from the little airport that is literally next door, but once we were there it really didn’t bother us. It’s noisy for about 30 seconds while the plane is flying directly above, but this is just several times a day, not several times an hour. There are so many reasons to love Rendezvous, and other than a couple of niggles, the only thing that would improve Rendezvous in my view would be if it were near Soufriere rather than Castries! Castries is okay for one visit to the market, but there’s not much else going for it, whereas we found Soufriere to have a lot more charm and it has more of the things you’d want to be doing on the island nearby.

Good to be back.

Jan 16th, 2020

After spending our honeymoon here we decided to return for our 5th anniversary and my 50th. Of course if you’ve been somewhere once you always compare when you return, Rendezvous didn’t let us down. The Malabar beach restaurant is a new addition and a big plus , we loved lunch on the beach and a couple of evening dinners there. The booking system for evenings does make it difficult to get a preferred time but we have since discovered an online booking system which we’d use in advance when going again. Pretty much everything else has been said about the staff , many we recalled from our previous visit . Jacinta who greeted us on arrival remembering us like long lost friends, Frances too who served us for our romantic dinner on honeymoon and wanted to do the same again for our anniversary. The bar staff are also great too, Tash ..’nice’ and Gilford who always went the extra mile in the terrace bar. Veronica the ‘egg lady’ who’s a permanent fixture it seems even managed to rescue about a dozen of us when the automatic doors failed in the buffet at breakfast one morning! We have taken a shine to the Verandah Suites with those lovely large balconies and steamer chairs , though the upstairs ones do give more privacy. It must have made a good impression as we’ve booked to return in December. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
