Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort

St Lucia, Caribbean

Virgin rating

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. Located on one of the largest secluded beaches on the island, 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. The high-quality restaurants are yet another great feature, five different dining options from light dishes to mouth-watering gourmet specialities. The beachside bar is well located, overlooking the calm shallow sea making it the perfect place to enjoy the beautiful sunset.

Notes on Windjammer Checkin aided by Daniel went smoothly. Rum punch delicious as usual. Franz Starker and Cyantha very helpful with our Pre-holiday requests. We ate at Upper Deck twice. I liked the steak with the surf and turf but not the prawns. But overall good. Some very nice wine on our second visit to Upper Deck with friends. Joshua the waiter was rushed off his feet but managed to be friendly and professional. Villa208 looked good and housekeeping led by Andrea exemplerary. We did not lack for towels . Beforehand I had requested newish bedlinen as this was poor in January. My request was granted! I wasn’t very well the first week so a quiet restful room with comfortable bedding was just the thing I needed. We spent quite a lot of mornings there with very friendly bird life and adopted “Tommy the Trembler” who would be waiting for tidbits every morning. During heavy rain our ceiling (the flat bit) started leaking through the plaster. This was a bit worrying as right above the dining table so hopefully will be addressed. Pool maintenance was sadly iffy and we cleaned out the copious rainflies ourselves by getting into the pool and the use of “Archimedes displacement principle”. The only letdown of the stay. Shuttle drivers were great and treated us like old friends. . Nice to meet Linus whom I knew from another resort. All offered a hand for me to get in and out if the shuttle and helped with shopping too. They are great ambassadors for the resort. Food at Jammers was good and the bar staff friendly and helpful. Sadly the noise levels from the entertainment at 8pm had us leaving early most nights which was a shame. We did experience the “Country and Western” one night during a very rainy night at Jammers. The singer was ok but over amplified and just not my thing. It was a nice and funny evening though and top marks to Osamy and Iknur (?) for making our evening fun. The Jammers Beef Bouillon was excellent and great with the hot pepper sauce. Yannick the violinist is very good and next time I will try to listen to all of his set. I do miss the Shak Shak band though. They played for the Management cocktail parties in the past but I got to see them at East Winds two weeks later. Any chance of bringing them and the parties back by January Covid permitting! ? We did not try Dragonfly as the cost put us off a bit. Maybe next time :-) Checkout, for the first time ever, went smoothly. Owners get discounts and these were clearly shown in the bill. No nasty surprises. All in all 4.5 stars. Looking forward to our next trip and counting the days! Read less

My family of four (7 yo and 9yo) stayed for a week. Our first accommodations wasn’t what we expected, but the team graciously made a change for us the next day and then we were set for the most perfect holiday. PROS: the staff and people. Karen in the lobby spent her birthday making sure our room change went smoothly and every day we ran into her she beamed her huge warm smile. Keezie and Sherlon in the kids club successfully made our kids want to go and so we got a few days to ourselves! Priceless!! Housekeeping was impeccable!!! Kudos to the team! Lastly Niah and Wendy at Papa Don’s made our little girl’s birthday SO special on our last night. I could go on and on because everyone just made every moment of each day feel like we were family. Though we didn’t go on his tour because we made other arrangements Tyler seems like a gem! Our 2 bedroom villa was excellent (once we changed). It was exactly what we wanted and was extremely clean and comfortable. You do need to shuttle up and down the hilly property but you never wait long for one and it’s a great chance to chat with other guests from around the world. We enjoyed it! CONS: this is not a major one, but just a call out that the food is not like a typical large chain all-inclusive resort where it feels a little more higher end/fine dining. We knew this so we managed our own expectations. I also would have loved some snacks and beverages in the actual room/villas stocked every day like you’d see at other all-inclusives but not the end of the world. We had the best vacation and by far this was our favourite Caribbean destination. We are already planning to return! Read less

No complaints. Beautiful resort and wonderful experience. They made everything wonderful and very accommodating. They say 4.5 resort but they treat you like a 5 star resort. The food is great and staff is awesome

The Windjammer Landing in St. Lucia exceeded my expectations of what a vacation property would provide. From my arrival, the hosts met me with a warm welcome and a cool drink. Every day the breakfast buffet was substantial, anything I forgot to bring was there; from medical needs, transportation, to beach towels – I wanted for nothing. The shuttles taking me back and forth to my villa were there at my beck and calls. Next time, after my business retreat, I will stay over to relax and enjoy the entertainment produced each night.

This is my second weeklong trip in two years, and I will return for at least one week in 2023. The resort is beautifully designed to include nature. There are many tropical plants with fruit and flowers. You can stroll the property or request shuttle transportation to move around the property. The staff’s goal is -” get it right the first time!” I appreciate the Ambassador service and for two years, Helen Richards has made sure that my stay exceeded my expectations! ❤️ Helen is supported by a well-trained staff. I adore the shuttle drivers, health & fitness professionals, and entertainers. The chefs, wait-staff, and bar staff are gracious and courteous. You can host private parties and receive top service. There are two pools in common areas and several villas have pools. I had a pool. It was attended by the pool staff and I was able to walk out of my bedroom and use the private pool whenever I desired. I had a complete kitchen with pots, dishes, glasses, etc. My unit contained a washer/dryer and before my return, I cleaned my clothes. There are several restaurants on the property and a store for groceries and other provisions. I encourage you to use the Windjammer cab service to drive you to a local restaurant or grocery store.
