We have just returned from 10 nights at the superb Windjammer Landing Resort in St Lucia. What a wonderful place! From the moment we arrived we really felt the warm welcome, from staff, taxi drivers, fellow guests. In fact, everyone we met. The accommodation was lovely, the food was excellent, trips out exciting and ‘DJ Junior’ was very entertaining. The weather in St Lucia was always very warm but the breeze made it pleasant at all times. Thanks to all at the Windjammer, we will be back!
Superb holiday at Windjammer
We had a fabulous holiday at Windjammer. The staff give over 100% in making sure you have the most wonderful time. The entertainment staff, Jacquie and Kizzy were fab with the activities. The water sports guys, Denver, Gordon, Jr-Marl, Shurard, Anthony, Jameson, Howard and Dwight were all amazing. And Nona at 96 Degrees (we renamed it Nona's Bar because it really should be hers) was the best at making cocktails. Embers and Jammers are fab for relaxed lunches and dinners. We had a lovely ocean view apartment, which was very spacious. We were all-inclusive and it was the best we've ever had. There was loads to do to keep active, or you can just relax on the beach or by the pool. Do whatever, you're on holiday! This was a fab holiday and we can't wait to return.
Great location, and lovely hotel!
Nicely run hotel, the rooms were spacious and clean with beautiful ocean views. I would like to say a special thank you to Kheri who worked at the restaurant / bar. Very professional and always smiling, he went above and beyond to make our holiday special. Thanks to everyone at a windjammer!
Wonderful experience again at Windjammer Landing!
We recently stayed at WJL for a few weeks in a 3 bedroom villa up on the hillside with gorgeous unobstructed views of the Labrolette Bay below, the city of Castries to the south and the resort point to the north. This is a beautiful place to watch daily the huge cruise ships go in and out of Castries. The resort caters to your every need. There are plenty of watersports, including snorkeling, kayaking, windsurfing, water skiing, and so on. Plenty of excursions start and finish right here in the bay at the WJL resort including dive boats (there is a PADI certified site), fishing boats, sunset sails, daily sails, and tour boats.. a bit of something for everyone. There is also a spa, which we haven’t tried, and tennis courts, and a well equipped fitness center. The resort does have an all inclusive plan, but that is an option, not mandatory. There are five restaurants on site, from beach and/or bar food to carribean fare, Italian, and fine dining. There are no fine dining dress requirements, other than the typical no bathing suits, no shoes restrictions. We prefer a casual lifestyle and like comfortable or resort wear, while others may prefer dressing up. Typically there is daily music entertainment, and so many activities for the young kids and teens alike, both on the beach, and the separate play areas. Don’t let the steep hillsides where most of the units are located concern you. They have a complimentary shuttle service to take you up and down as often as you like. It runs all the time and is so very convenient. If you prefer to stay in and cook for yourself and family, then that option is available as most units have convenient kitchens with stainless steel appliances, and all the cutlery, small typical kitchen appliances, and place set ups that you will need. In addition, there is a very convenient mimi-mart on site that has most necessary items available for purchase, both food stock and drinks, and things like bug spray, detergent, etc. The units are nicely equipped with tv’s in the bedrooms and living areas, spacious dinette areas, ample decks, with those amazing views, and many with private/individual plunge pools, infinity pools, or hot tubs, and all with deck furniture. The bedrooms typically have their own ensuite baths, with plenty of towels, soaps, etc. and either nice stand up showers or tubs. Many of the units, but not all, also have a washer and dryer. Most of all, the staff, the welcome group, the housekeeping staff…. All make us feel so very welcome and are there at every request. You can just feel that their only goal is to make us feel comfortable and at home. We feel totally at home here and look forward to returning soon!
Another wonderful family holiday
What is it about Windjammer that works so well? It is just simply a great relaxing, safe environment for all the family. If you have sporty children who love water sports there really isn’t a better place in the Caribbean. Huge shout out to all the waters ports staff who are really fun, but also very professional. Howard taught me to to sail a Hobie Cat, then I received daily encouragement from Gordon, Dwight, Anthony, Denver, Jameson and Shurandi. Jameson and Denver were incredibly patient waterskiing instructors and taught my daughters to wakeboard and monoski. The all-inclusive option is pretty good value for money considering Christmas and New Year is so expensive. The quality of a la carte meals is very high, our favourites being Jammers, Papa Dons and Upper Deck, however the service in Upper Deck this year was a bit too slow despite the valiant efforts of Miguel who was training and made such a great effort and he was incredible to the whole family. There are lots of comments about the staff. The mast majority are brilliant and very warm, however there are some who possibly trade off the overall reputation and need to be more consistent in their service. We stayed in a two bedroom, two bathroom duplex which had a balcony and a roof terrace. This worked really well for us. My only gripe is that the sheets are not of the calibre you might expect in more 5 star hotels. Overall, having stayed twice, we would thoroughly recommend this resort for families looking for a safe, fun and relaxing holiday. New Year’s Eve was incredibly fun and the firework display was magnificent as it was last year. This is why families return year after year!
