Rendezvous St. Lucia, or Paradisius, D.R.?

Should we go to St. Lucia or Dominican Rep?

Two pretty different places.
We stayed at Rendevous 11 years ago when it was Couples and we found it to be pretty bad for the $$$.
What activities/sights would you like?
DR is less expensive and has gorgeous Punta Cana and you can get to it pretty fast and less expensively.
St Lucia has awesome diving/snorkeling and beautiful scenery, but no white sand beaches and turquoise waters...It's tough to get to and flights are expensive.

Rendezvous needs some MAJOR rennovations and I agree with Nancy, NOT worth the $ value. Stay away from Rendezvous (was there 2001; I'm sure it was great 11 years ago when Couples was there).

LeSport (sister resort to Rendezvous) in St. Lucia we love, and I've heard many good things about Jalousie Hilton in the So. of St. Lucia.

I hear that Punta Cana in the DR, as Nancy noted, is a good value for the $ and pretty new, so you might want to check into it.

Hope this helps.

Dissing the rendezvous again.

We stayed there earlier on this year and could not fault it.

Have a look at wheretostay.com there are a lot of reviews there. Post 2001 not too good but 2001 - 02 there are excellent reviews.

I wouldn't say it needed MAJOR refurbishment. Maybe the garden view rooms could do with a bit of an overhaul but The luxury oceanfront rooms sure as hell don't.

Sorry can't comment on DR as it doesn't appeal to me and I'm not dissing something I don't know.

Whatever you decide on have a great time.

hi, i have never been to St Lucia but we did stay at the Paradisus last March in Punta Cana and had a great time. We were very surprised and would return. You can read my report on www.concierge.com under travelogs - user name checkers43.
