We did a lot of resesrch before booking this resort; we considered other hotels on st Lucia and also Antigua. We had a few concerns about the hotel being near the airport. However,Our experience was excellent. The staff are really lovely. A particular shout out to Jaye and Matt who taught us to sail, Chelsea who served afternoon tea, Tasha ( nice), and the waiting staff in all 3 restaurants, and champagne bar. As with any hotel, if you are picky, there could be a few minor issues ( other reviews mention near graveyard, and slightly tired, public beach.....as is all of st lucia, and near airport....occasional small plane), but you have to be looking for faults to find these. Food is of a very good standard. Would definitely recommend and come back. Only advice to hotel is to stop people reserving sun loungers and not sitting on them Read less

Fantastic experience, great meals with healthy quality ingredients- loved the lazy river with private platform and chairs to spend the day swimming, napping, reading! Tons of great activities like yoga, meditation, tai chi, tennis, sailing, etc. Would definitely go back!

Just had 10 nights at Stolen Times by Rendezvous at Castries , St. Lucia. Form the start to the finish was a truly great time. The location of the hotel, set right on the beach, was exceptional. We walked into the capital, Castries , meeting numerous local people in the local market and harbour areas. The people are so friendly and I didn't feel intimidated at all. The hotel was exceptionally clean and well maintained. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent and technics for every meal were incredible. We had two days out on the island visiting the Pitons and the spa area . A local tour rep from Jo Jo's was found on the beach near to the hotel. He was brilliant and at the same time not pushy on his sales. I feel that he should be attached to the hotel where he can chat in the building as he was a great ambassador for St. Lucia and I think that the hotel would also benefit. This hotel and island is definitely one that I would return to. Absolute Paradise ! Read less

Our entire stay of ten days was truly spectacular! The staff was totally fablulous! When we left, Anita from the beach staff came running to give me a hug! She is amazing! The food was all so beautiful and the presentation WOW! I can't say enough of Stolentime, it was such a most wonderful experience - we will go back indeed.
