Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort

St Lucia, Caribbean

The hotel

Set amongst 60 acres of hillside, Windjammer is surrounded by lush tropical gardens and overlooks pretty Labrelotte Bay. Beautifully decorated in a Southern Mediterranean style, tiled walkways, sloping roofs and elegant white buildings make Windjammer one of the most attractive hotels in St Lucia. For ultimate luxury, an upgrade to villa accommodation is highly recommended. Windjammer is perfect for couples wanting to escape everyday life but is equally suited to families wanting to enjoy the extensive facilities that the hotel has to offer.

Well..where do i start. Was re allocated to this wonderful resort by chance as my original reservation hotel had over booked but boy was i in for a most pleasant surprise! The resort is located under 15 mins drive away from Rodney Bay but with regular taxi service posed no concerns at all. From the moment we turned into the estate ( gated) from the main road and the short drive to the front reception area i immediately knew that my stay would be special. From the very charming receptionist (so very helpful and knowledgeable about the island) who provided me with a rum punch upon my arrival, to the shuttle drivers, restaurant staff, towel lady (so funny), groundskeepers, house maids etc...all very welcoming, friendly and are a credit to the Resort!!. As the location of the dwellings (Mediterranean in style) are set within the hillside it does make walking to and from the restaurants and beach a little challenging but with the regular shuttle service the resort provides it makes it all the more worthwhile (grounds of this complex are amazing and they also prepare and cook what they produce). My room was not so much your typical 'hotel room' but was more akin to a junior suite, with a 4 poster bed, separate walk in closet, and my own private roof terrace...result! Had a slight issue with water that entered into my room due to a couple of heavy rain showers (only negative) but this was investigated and addressed quickly once reported at reception. With a choice of 5 restaurants, several pools, a Jacuzzi, Water activities (the Aqua fit classes looked like great fun)...the beach... and the opportunity to participate in activities (information displayed in the reception foyer with a timetable of activities taking place each week) all arranged by the resort, you were spoilt for choice as to what to do next. Car hire (reasonable rates) can be arranged on site and usually no more that 24 hours notice. The open plan buffet style breakfast was amazing, so much choice and with a resident chef on hand to cook food to order (always humming and smiling) i couldn't fault anything, even the pesky birds that flew in and out whilst dining! I would recommend a stay at this resort any day and have already started planning my return trip for next year! Thank you Windjammer, you made my very 1st trip to St Lucia an incredibly special one.

The beach is perfect, with wonderful umbrellas and chairs you can sit at and relax. There's a bar right on the beach to enjoy, and there are three hammocks in the water. The room is very clean and quiet, with a lovely private rooftop view where you can enjoy your own sunset. I loved my stay at this hotel and would recommend it to anyone.

This resort is in the north of the island, roughly 1.5 hour journey from the airport (US70) taxi. The hotel however offers a rate of US90 at the time of writing Sep 2019. Driving up to the hotel entrance for the first time would seem picturesque and it is. Check-in was easier than expected. Now one must decide at check-in how far away from the main reception you will be prepared to be. This option wasnt offered to us. It is my understanding that a room only basis, you will be allocated a 'rustic' accommodation. I use the word rustic as used by a timeshare employee. The room allocated to me was near to Papa Dons. It was a large studio with two showers and double basin sinks. There was a large rooftop patio with fantastic unobstructed views of the sea. Small fridge with a smaller compartment freezer is also in the four poster bed room. The views from the room and the terrace are fantastic however the decor is somewhat dated. There are other rooms in the resort which are more modern and other rooms which are of a 5star hotel. The luxury villas near the tennis courts are luxurious comprising 3/4 bedrooms with swimming pool. Looking at the rack rate prices, they are eye watering and way overpriced. Seven nights in the luxury 3 bed villa is 30k usd on an all inclusive basis for 6 persons. Are they serious? If you are looking to totally unwind, then this place is great. At times I felt it lacked atmosphere. No one wants to listen to a 1hour play list on repeat each day. Even some calypso and soca playing at the beach bar would have been great. There was music played from Jammers bar during the day but by my second day, it became monotonous. Breakfast - arrive early to avoid long queues at rush hour "9-10.30". If anyone has seen faulty towers, you would know what im talking about. It lacked leadership. One person who I shall not name, she knows who she is, was completely rude on every occasion I encountered her. Total sour face every time. Not even a smile or good morning. Its sad really as we, the paying customer have travelled to be on such a beautiful island to then experience such bad manners. Suffice to say some staff members did try their best, some taking initiative while some were out of their depth with simple table planning. Be prepared to sign every receipt for everything you eat and drink. It just became annoying after the 5th day. This applies to all inclusive guests as well as guests on a room only/bb basis. The breakfast was repetitive (left overs from the previous night) served as a special in the morning. Some of the fish was tasty but not out of this world. You will notice flies swarming around the bread station which is unfortunate but this is normally covered. Don't leave without signing else they will hunt you down!! Onsite supermarket - overpriced to the point they were taking the mic! 6 beers for 45EC dollars. Local supermarket a mile up the road: 13EC dollars. I expect to pay a premium but not get my bottom emptied at the same time. There are only a handful of items which have prices on the goods. Everything else you have to continually ask the cost which is a pain. This is extremely annoying for employee and customer. Location - absolutely stunning location. Cannot fault it however what comes with such a beautiful resort, you will be restricted to taxis and/or car hire. Taxis are overpriced for what they offer in my opinion. Its a 1.2 mile walk, slow 20 min walk out to the main road and 55 min slow walk to Rodney Bay. This is not recommended after sunset as the road leading up to the resort is unpaved. Shuttle buses for guests are available around the resort. Fantastic service however beware if using the service after heavy rain. The shuttle runs from reception to your villa and vice versa. Beach - superb. Enough sun loungers by the two pools and the beach. They also have three hammocks in the water. What to look out for - beware of the timeshare personnel. It was overbearing. The amount of bs in 2 hours was unbelievable. Asked if the mountains in the distance from the beach were the Pitons, the response was "i don't know". Funniest thing I ever heard. Surely you would know if living on the island for many years. They will talk a good talk but no cooling off period so you wont get your deposit back if you change your mind. Expect them to offer you a 'great deal' then if you don't want to go for it, expect a 'five year plan' deal. For 100usd it wasnt worth my time. Accountants and Financial advisors need not apply. Food - I personally didnt eat at the resort outside of breakfast. Anecdotal evidence from other guests I spoke with would suggest the food was not the best in the world. I would recommend 'Flavours of the grill' and 'Orangewood' for food outside of the resort. Would I stay here again - I would stay here again for a number of reasons. Although the room i was in was dated, it wasnt a huge deal breaker however the location of the room was perfect. Would I stay in the room if on my honeymoon? No! The service and the food will need to improve vastly for me to return. Hoteliers need to realise they are competing for business if they have average standards. Yes the views are spectacular, but the service needs to be improved throughout with food offerings to rival other hotels. I don't want to spend any amount of time signing for stuff if I am on an all inclusive basis. Read less
