Definitely does. rendezvous is a boutique style hotel, very intimate and quiet despite being by the airport. Staff is really friendly and amazing.

Have you contacted then directly with regards ti their day passes? For years, if not decades, they've had several tiers of day passes, including one that was ideal for cruise visitors that was 10-3 or 4, for around $65-75 pp.  

At $105 pp, that adds up fast. Are you going to actually drink that much booze to make it worthwhile? (same question for Sandals for that matter)..

What is it that's driving a day pass?  Is it the activities, or the pool, or something else?  If it was between Sandals or Rendezvous, Rendezvous wins for me, hands down. Closest by far, easy walking distance really, great food and drink, etc - but you'd have to drink a lot in your limited hours to make it worthwhile.

I'd suggest also looking at Calabash Cove - no day pass per session but they welcome limited day guests and can use the pool, have food and drinks - and it's breathtaking...you'd have to contact for availability..

You could go to Vigie Beach, enjoy the same beach Rendezvous is located on, for free...small boardwalk with local food and drinks, cocktails, chairs for $5, massuese, and so forth.  May be something to consider instead..

Can one walk, safely, from the cruise pier to Rendezvous? (Sidewalks)

Approximately, how far is it? We walk 3 miles a day so distance is not a problem....just want to make sure it is safe with sidewalks, other people around, etc.) Thanks.

Yes, it's very easily walkable, and safe/easy. It's around 20-30 minutes depending on which pier you're at.

From La Place Caranage (the two story shopping complex dock are), hang a left after exiting the shops area, head up the road till it splits, hang a left around the waterfront, keep going up the road till you hit the airport, hang a right to the end/traffic circle, hang a left across the end of the runway and right into Rendezvous.

From Pointe Seraphine (one story dock shops), exit the port area, follow the freeder road to the main toad, hang a left at the gas station, follow road to airport - abd directions as above.  

It's all flat, sidewalks/wide side if the road all the way.  

Enjoy

Yes there are sidewalks and it is safe. Be vigilant, though cause you will be walking on the main highway. If your cruise is berthed at Point Seraphine, enter the terminal building, take a right , walk all the way past the shops etc, to the exit, pass the black gate and the taxi drivers' and tour operators and the parking lot. Walk along side more taxis and coaster waiting to be filled up until you get to the main highway.  You should see a gas station on your left and the St. Lucia Electricity services building on your right. Turn left walking along the highway(I suggest a small umbrella cause the sun can be super hot). At the end of that stretch you should see a soccer field and a small airport. Continue on, with the airport always on your left side, follow the road until you get to the roundabout. Turn left at the end of the airport, use the pedestrian crossing there to get on the other side, Rendezvous is directly in front of you.

 

If you are at La Place Carenage, enter the terminal building, take a left , following the crowd out of the building. You will find lost of taxi drivers out there. Take a left after you exit the building, walk along side of the road(should be a parking lot barricaded with wood. Walk until you get to the second set of traffic lights(do not cross the street). Take a left following the road, all the way around the waterfront area, you will by pass the Castries Market o your right, Vendors arcade on the left. You should be seeing your cruise ship at this point. Follow the waterway, all the way around(4 big buildings will be on your right). Cross the bridge and follow the road until you get to the airport. From there same instructions as above.
