The resort itself is beautiful. All the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The service was top notch and always so fast. The view from my villa was breathtaking. The food was great, and the entertainment was on point every day. I'd definitely stay again!

It goes without saying the staff here are beyond lovely but the level of care & detail they put into their hospitality is beyond me. I truly felt welcomed from the taxi drop off to the shuttle room pick up. The spa service here is a MUST visit ! After being dishearten because the sauna and steam wasn’t working the manager personally came to send his apologies and offered me a range of alternatives to choose from - he even tailored it to what I needed. PLEASE TELL THEM WHAT YOU ARE AFTER - they have a treatment for everything. I later was shown to my treatment room where Gale was taking care of me. She made me feel so relaxed given I had a shaky start to my trip and made me feel soo cared for. After I was done she took me back to the lounge where I found a birthday platter and drinks for myself. I couldn’t believe the staff paid attention to the date - yes it was my birthday 🧘‍♂️ And I asked her to join me in helping me eat the cake and she sat with me, speaking for a while- I’m which I told her I broke my toe nail and if she knew anyone who did nails in St Lucia! Guess what - THEY DO NAILS, LASHES, EYEBROWS, WAXING AND BRIDAL HAIRSTYLES!!!! I can’t believe how much they do. They are are amazing. Stephanie who did my nail was out of the world, made my feet feel soo cute. I’m beyond grateful to the windjammer team x Read less

This was our second trip to Windjammer Landing and it pains me not to provided an exceptional rating as we did last time. More on that later. We had a three bedroom villa for what was planned as a family reunion after two years of being separated by state and countries. My wife and I, our daughter and her family and our son and his significant other intended a reunion for a relaxing week. It was not to be as our daughter was ill and they had to cancel. So we had a three bedroom villa for two couples. The villa was dated but well beyond acceptable and exceeded our needs. It would have suited us had all three families been present. The rooms were comfortable and spacious, the unit was clean, had all the appliances, plates and cutlery we needed to prepare an occasional meal or snack and had the common areas (kitchen, living room) to enjoy them. The beds were extremely comfortable and all sundries were available. The sunsets from the side of the hills are worth the price alone. With the exception of the front desk, the staff were outstanding. From bartenders to restaurant personnel, everyone was friendly, pleasant and went above and beyond. Being in the bubble and with most restaurants closed outside the resort we sampled all the resort food and have no complaints. Slightly pricey for the fare but that is to be expected in resorts. The Friday night beach fish fry (a substitute for the sorely missed Friday night street party in Gros Islet) was excellent and provided a great mood for the evening. I would also recommend the on-site dive operation Eastern Caribbean Diving if you plan to do any diving. I have been diving for over fifty years and they were as professional as any outfit I have used. The problem and reason for the Very Good Rating: when my son and I checked in we asked if it was possible to separate our expenses for anything purchased while on-site and were told it was no problem. We were asked for and provided a credit card each and were told to charge things separately if we did not want them on the master bill and to advise the staff when doing so. We did that and two days before we departed I asked to check on the bills to ensure there were no issues. The expense we had separated were on the master bill and it took an hour for the desk staff to find the copies of the credit cards and determine the necessary expenses were not separated. I went through everything to get the expenses correct. The next evening after dinner (the night before checkout) I went back to the desk. This time the process took two hours as nothing had been done and more infuriating was the desk clerk berating me for not setting up separate expenses in advance and providing separate cards. I held my tongue once she eventually found the two copies of the credit cards and realized we did exactly as we were asked to do. A manager worked with me for over an hour to straighten everything out and to his credit he succeeded. So I wasted three hours the last two evenings doing what was told was no problem when I checked in. I tell this story because my experience now tells me that separating expenses is not recommended even though they say they can do it on check-in. Other than the accounting and front desk I can't say enough good things about the resort and the staff. I intend to go back and hope to be able to leave next time with an exceptional rating. I can't get back my last evening in a great location (unless you consider the lobby great). Thanks to the manager who solved our problem and to all the other wonderful staff who worked so hard under trying circumstances to make for a great experience. Read less

We had a basic room with on suite balcony with loungers and a sea view near to Poppa Dons restaurant (very handy when using it at night) Food is of average quality Italian style Pizza, Pasta. Our waiter Rohan is wasted as a waiter, he should be maître de or manager he was very good and concerned about his station and others that weren't quite as attentive ( you can see the difference of professional training ) All the restaurants (5) serve different food although there are some dishes that overlap. My favourite from Jammers was the Shrimp Caesars wrap. overall facilities are very good the food does seem very expensive but I think from our visit off site to another very good restaurant The Big Chef that they are similar. We found that our choice of fully inclusive appears to be reasonable to cover what ever you needed even ice creams on the beach and all your drinks so you didn't have to worry about what or you ate or drank allowing you to enjoy your holiday including a service charge for all bills, the only extras are the spa, and shops on site you have to pay for. All water activity's are included. You can take trips from Windjammers to other parts of the island by tours in bus or boats. We have been three times and are quite fussy about our holidays. Sunsets are wonderful and the villas have character. Remember that this is an Island and everything comes in from somewhere else especially the food and this with taxes can make things expensive.

This was our first experience of the Caribbean and St Lucia and Windjammer Landing exceeded all our expectations ! The resort is spread out over the hillside like a Mediterranean village, each accommodation has a stunning view over the bay with stunning sunsets. The beach has lovely soft sand and the turquoise sea is warm and inviting but do look out for sea urchins and I would recommend water shoes. Everywhere is spotlessly clean and the grounds are beautifully maintained with gorgeous plants and flowers in abundance. We saw hummingbirds and marvelled at the nightly chorus of the tree frogs. Our 2 bed villa was styled beautifully and extremely spacious and comfortable for 2 couples. Towels, toiletries and teas and coffees were replaced frequently and the beds made every day. The shuttle buses that whizz you around the resort were amazing and the drivers were highly skilled at getting up and down the steep rollercoaster like roads. You never waited more than 5 mins to get one either which was fantastic. The warm welcome and attentive service from all the staff at Windjammers made us feel so special. Everyone is always smiling and laughing (to an old cynical Brit this was bemusing to start but then you realise, it is genuine and you can't help but marvel at what we get used to in the UK and Europe - yes France I am looking at you !!) Everyone was fantastic but special mention to Valencia at the Jammers Bar with her infectious giggle and also to Denver at the water sports who went above and beyond to ensure we got the most from our experiences. We went AI and felt we got exceptional value from this option as the food and beverages did seem expensive on resort. The food was great with plenty of options. We loved the buffet breakfast, from choosing fruit juice of the day (favourite was passionfruit) to what to put in your 'cooked to order' omelette. In addition to this there was outstanding range of cereals, hot and cold options such a sausages, bacon, pancakes, tropical fruit. and really good coffee. Lunch was eaten either in Embers or Jammers - the latter having a slightly greater choice with baguettes and sandwiches but we particularly enjoyed the fresh topped salads at Embers washed down with a rum punch or two ! A favourite spot after 5pm was watching the sunset from the 96 degrees in the shade bar on the beach with a Pina Colada. We visited all the dinner restaurants and the service and food were great in them all. The steak (at a supplement) at the Upper Deck was mouth-watering. The daily activities and water sports were included as we were on AI and we took full advantage once we had signed all the disclaimer forms (The St Lucians love a form!) The kayaks, paddle boards, pedalos and windsurfing could be done during the day and you signed up at 3pm for the daily "thrill" ride of either the banana boat, Mabel the sofa or our favourite the do-nuts, that began at 4pm. We joined in the aqua aerobics a few times and it seemed that the activities went on all day from tie dyeing T-shirts to beach volleyball and giant connect 4. Every evening there was entertainment with singers, musicians and I will never forget the steel band on the beach playing "Sweet Caroline" as the waves lapped in. There are a gift shop, clothes shop, jewellers and Mini mart (*top tip do NOT buy the Evian water by mistake like we did at $12 for a 2 litre bottle, look for the Blue Water at $5 for 2 bottles although you could ask at the bars for your refillable bottles to be topped up) The resort is a good 90 minute drive from Hewanorra airport and they organised a taxi transfer for us $90 each way which took all the stress away and was a good price. We had no issues with the bill at the end as everything had been accurately recorded. There is a fantastic system whereby you leave a deposit for beach towels and you receive a card that you turn in every time you get a fresh one - this saves space in your case and also means you can get a clean dry towel whenever you want one-genius ! Regarding Covid safety - nothing was left to chance, all staff worse masks, there were temperature checks at each meal but it never felt intrusive, hand sanitiser on entry to the shuttles and of course there is no issue with ventilation as the there is always a beautiful breeze blowing through and no doors or windows in the communal areas! We booked a boat tour with Tyler from Exodus who had a table on the beach which was an unforgettable day although the resort offer their own excursions too. All in all to sum up, I can't imagine why anyone would have anything negative to say about Windjammers (perhaps it says more about them?) anyway it is quite simply a paradise, we had a incredible holiday and I would go back in a heartbeat !
