Reviewed 20 January 2018 via mobile

My husband and I visited Windjammer Landing in December 2017 for the 3rd year in a row. We love Windjammer Landing so much that, on our 2nd visit, in 2016, we purchased a time share from the Private Residence Club. Jessica has always been very helpful and Carolyn does a fabulous job arranging our accommodations. As new owners we have had many questions and Carolyn has always been so nice and patient with us.
Esie at the front desk is also a great asset here. She always has a smile on her face and has been so helpful to us on countless occasions. I also need to mention Tasha who, along with Esie, spent so much time in the office with me getting my phone restarted after it crashed very early in our trip.
The staff at the restaurants is great also. Special mentions need to go to Syra, Jose, June and Merlika at Papa Don’s and to Gail at Dragonfly and Embers.
Ronette at Upper Deck deserves a very special mention. Our daughter was proposed to at Upper Deck on our most recent visit. Ronette was our server that night and knew that we were planning on returning the following night for dinner. Totally of her own accord, she obtained a pink tablecloth, crystals and other decor for a special celebratory dinner. She also arranged for a special dessert on chef decorated plates. During our entire dinner she was standing close by making sure that we had anything that we wanted.
JJ is our favored driver for for airport transfers and day trips on the island. He kept my husband stocked with dry coconuts on our visit.
Niles is our favorite shuttle driver. Such a nice guy!
We have traveled all over the world. I can’t say enough nice things about this resort! We will definitely be returning often.

We keep returning to Windjammer Landing. It is a lovely location and the staff are always friendly and helpful. The beach is not overcrowded. The beach is on a protected area of water so if looking for surf you won’t see much there. The restaurants are good with a wide selection of food for all family members, including our picky teen; reservations are needed but have never been a problem. The resort is a fairly short taxi ride from Castries, the capital of St Lucia. There are always cruise ships docked in the harbor and there is an excellent local market as well as duty-free shopping. The resort does have two small stores for clothing and gifts as well as a minimart. Being on the all inclusive plan we had minimal need for the minimart. Will return again next year. If first visit, be prepared for a long ride from the international airport at the opposite end is the island. It is a good way to see much of the island.

We were 8 people looking for warm anywhere during the 2017 frigid New York Christmas and found heaven at Windjammer in St. Lucia. This is an all inclusive resort and our villa offered the most spectacular 180° view in the Windward Islands. The villa was spacious and beyond luxury comfortable with full kitchen, living room, library, spacious bedrooms with their own bathroom, swimming pool, and full yard. The beautiful campus is filled with tropical flora and maintained impeccably. You'll be using the shuttle services a lot from your villa as the inclines are very steep. It rains briefly everyday to generate more rainbows that you thought you'd see in a lifetime.
Their beach is great with plenty of room and bars that keep the drinks flowing. DO NOT swim out of marked bounds as you'll encounter sharp rock and sea urchins that sting.

The food at the resort is adequate but limited and nothing special. We hit a couple of off resort restaurants that were excellent and a 20 minute cab ride away. The gym and spa are first rate. The tennis courts are terrible and hardly maintained at all. We rented boats for excursions including hikes and an ATV tour. You should pass on the over crowded water fall and mud bath.

Esie was amazing at the front desk and made us feel very much at home. A welcoming, warm soul.

We can not get back fast enough!

This was our 2nd visit and to be fair we enjoyed our stay. Beach lovely you never struggle to get beds the facilities including pool all very good.

A few disappointments teens are no longer catered for or children over 12 (too old for kids club) previously there was a teen room off the beach with Table Football in But this has now gone. The entertainment side was minimal to say it was a busy week with guests. (For kids)

We went on the all inclusive package and on NYE we were presented with a surcharge bill for the meal. We refused to pay as we had already paid on our booking.

Did feel sometimes the staff knew if your were on the all inclusive package as the drinks service was sometimes very poor in the Restaurants.

We booked Papa Dons one night from reception to arrive and be told they didn’t have a booking for us. The waitress made us feel awkward the whole meal saying they were busy and she really couldn’t let us in. It took 90mins to have the meal even though we scrapped starters so she could have the table back. Only 3 tables occupied on arrival. When we left at 8.00 she still had 8 tables empty. Didn’t go back again during our holiday as the whole feeling in the place felt awkward.

We stayed in an hibiscus apartment (2 joined together via an interconnecting door) which was great. The hot tub was fab and brilliantly cleaned as was the apartment. The bed was very creaky!

The beach was fabulous although slightly smaller than I expected. Never a problem getting a bed though. Always perfectly clean and beautiful every morning.

Pools were well kept and very clean. Lovely to swim in.

The water sports were better than expected. Water skiing was amazing and the staff are excellent.

Food was always nice and plentiful. The eggs at breakfast were the best by a lovely lady who sang beautifully.

Kids club was great. Our kids went one morning and loved it. Wished we sent them earlier on in our stay!

We pre arranged our dinner bookings before we arrived to save having to think whilst away which was agreed with windjammer. On 2 of the nights the restaurants we had booked were closed and on a third evening the kitchen broke! We were lucky to get squeezed in to another restaurant on 3 nights as it was quite busy. This was disappointing!

Also with six of us having all inclusive drinks all day it made for a lot of plastic cups and straws left lying around. We found ourselves continually picking up plastic from the beach. There was no rubbish collection during the day at all. We tried to order drinks with no straws but it was impossible and gave up in the end. I dread to think how much plastic makes it way into the sea!

Cash. You need to take cash with you. You can only get $50 a day from reception with a 10% charge. Or you can take a 15 minute taxi to the ATM. If you go on excursions some require cash so this needs bearing in mind. Also cash is needed for the little stalls on the beach.

All in all a fantastic holiday. Thank you windjammer.

If we could change one thing it would be to collect rubbish throughout the day to save the fish and your wonderful environment.
