I've stayed at different resorts on various islands but this is one of the best ones. The big old tree is beautiful that's on the property. The entertainment and staff is great. The adult only atmosphere was great. I am looking forward to returning.
The food was excellent most nights. A few nights, the asian and Italian nights we not as good. Other then that wonderful wonderful resort. The island and the people itself are beautiful as well. This is now my favorite island in the carribean and I've been to many. Definately definitely recommend. Eric the bartender rocks. Joann the entertainment head does a fantastic job. On a scale from 1 to 10, rendezvous gets an 11.
do not stay here the beach was covered in trash and brokn glass when I stayed there for my honeymoon. I was very dissatisfied.
Hotel services, activites, and staff were wonderful. The staff was exceptionally helpful and accomodating to any request. Rooms were colorful and very nice (marble floors, beautiful bed, big balcony). Gardens were amazing and they managed to create a sense of privacy. Food was better than average with good variety. Buffet style dining was clean, tasteful and re-filled regularly, except for desert during lunch. However, location was not exactly as expected. The resort is a short walk to the capital city and adjacent to an airport and a cemetary. Beach was clean, but not private. Locals used the beach heavily on weekends and from about 4-7 during the week. Activities (boating, water skiing, volleyball) were great and staff offered lessons when needed. Resort staff encouraged guests to be involved in activities without being pushy, so maybe not a great choice for honeymooners looking for seclusion and minimal interaction. In addition, the island was hit by a huricane in fall 2010 and many...
We had an amazing stay! Fantastic food! Excellent service.. Felt special with all the extra care given.
My wife and I returned from our Honeymoon July 31, 2009 after a week at the Rendezvous Resort. All I can say is that there are too many HARD TO PLEASE people in this world!!! Our stay was excellent. It's true that the Rendezvous is not a state of the art, technologically enhanced, luxurious resort....but hell, we're from Miami, Florida and get that ALL the time. It was wonderfully peaceful and sirene, the scenery was great, the hotel staff are very accomodating, and island of St. Lucia itself is beautiful. I would definitely return and recommend.
We just returned from five nights at Rendezvous on June 7 and had a wonderful time. Rendezvous is a small all-inclusive perfect for couples looking to get away from it all. Because of it's small size it's certainly not a Sandals (which IMO is a good thing). While the resort is a little older, we loved the classic Caribbean style. The rooms were very comfortable, the food was varied from day to day and the staff went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. No complaints about the property. We travel extensively through the Caribbean and we generally won't go back to the same place because there are too many other places we've yet to experienced. But we would seriously consider revisiting Rendezvous in the future.
We are early 30's couple that just visited for 7 nights on our honeymoon in late June. We had a fantastic time! The weather was fantastic and only would rain for short amounts of time when it did. The resort was VERY clean and our room was very nice. (luxury beach front suite) The food was amazing in the Terrace. We did do Trysting place one night and enjoyed the elegance and class of the restaurant. I am a vegetarian and there was always PLENTY of food available. Lots of Gluten free food too! The beach was very clean and well kept, tons of activities! You could stay busy there for days. We enjoyed the board in the lobby that listed daily activities! Drinks were great and always served with a smile. The staff was very welcoming and friendly! We felt very pampered. Loved the small feel of this resort and attention to detail. It wasn't over crowded and was nice that it was adults only! Pools were excellent and not crowded, so much to do everywhere! The grounds are full of cute photo oppo...
The resort is clean and beautiful. The staff was very friendly and knew our names. It is a small resort which helps the staff care for you and get to know you. Perfect place for romance. Plenty of activities to keep you busy. The scuba pros were great. Recommend doing a candlelight dinner on the beach and night dive.
Very professional and positive experience from all the staff at this resort. They are quick at making you very comfortable. They are always asking if you need anything and go out of the way to get it for you. The hotel manager is extremly pleasant and it reflects the hole atmosphere of the resort. The food was average. Nothing to spectacular. Buffets were a different theme daily. We did not eat at the a la cart restaurant so I will not comment on it. But as far as service goes it was top notch and I would return to this resort for this reason.
The people were great. The Resort is in serious need of updating. We booked the Veranda suite . The air conditioner did not work. We were moved late that night to another Veranda room where the air conditioner did not work and the service vehicles were heard all night. The next day we paid extra to upgrade to a beach front room and the air in that room didn't work and clunked all night. There were no other rooms available. We paid extra for nothing. We booked a couples massage only to find out that the spa and gym were closed and the massage would have to be done in a pavillion out side. The weather was so hot and humid it would have been unbearable. They said they would come to our room but never showed or called. They said they left a message but the phone did not work. This could be a nice resort if they would spend some money to bring it out of the '80's'; It was so hot and humid in our room that the sheets felt wet. When you took a shower the fire alarm would go off. The tub/showe...
My gf and I came here for a vacation and actually extended our stay for 2 days. The staff is so nice and fun to be around. Plenty of things to do just at the resort. We only left twice to play golf and take the trip to the grenedines to snorkle. We met so many nice couples to spend time with at the pool and after sunset. If you are looking to relax and enjoy a resort this is THE place to go. The only downfall is beaches are public, so pay attention for holidays.... the beach will be full of locals. But we just hung out at the pool with friends. SCUBA lessons are available for free as well. Don't be scared at the gate when you pull in.... the beauty is at the resort not at the street. We booked the ocean view and it was well worth it to have a balcony to enjoy the view. We are even thinking of going back again in '09.
the hotel is ideal for the business traveler.close proximity to restaurants and minutes away from castries. right in the heart of rodney bay which the most lively part of st.lucia in my opinion. i will definitely stay there on my next business trip. i do think that breakfast should be added to the package though.
Great location overlooking the lagoon. Staff friendly and room clean.
Easy to access staff. No long lines or too busy staff. But, it was off season. No
My husband and I went to sandals la toc for our honeymoon. The resort is so beautiful and offered all kinds of free activities. We went sailing, snorkeling, kayaking, scuba diving, as well as took part in many of the events at the resort, it was amazing! I highly recommend sandals resorts, they really took care of us. Also the food was so delicious and we had many restaurants and lots of variety to chose from. There is truly something for everyone there!
My husband and I went to Sandals La Toc for our honeymoon and were MORE than pleased with the hotel from start to finish. Our room had a private pool and had views to die for. Absolutely breathtaking. The rooms were clean and the turn down services every night made our honeymoon EXTRA special. The staff was amazing. We had two butlers, Shauna and Jenny, who were amazing. However, the friends we met there that didn't have butlers had an equally amazing experience with the staff. They were helpful, constantly asking if we needed anything and friendly. People have complained about the beach since Grande's beach is more calm, but it was only a little 'rough' for a few days out of the trip and the rest were calm like a lake. AND what people are calling rough is just a few waves which where we are from in Jersey...we LOVE! Staying at the top of the cliff is absolutely beautiful. You really get those sunsets and sunrises that you want on a trip. There is a shuttle that comes every 5 minutes...
One week ago I stayed at Sandals Regency la Toc in an ocean view room. Whilst the service and the food were excellent, the room was good but needs a bit of upgrading to the bathroom; it was very clean and comfortable but not pristine and new; I guess the hotel is old. The mixed alcoholic beverages tasted a bit watery not creamy as I exptected but overall it was good value for money. I would recommend Sandals any day, they really provide superior service.
