"Great Hotel for all the family"
The resort was excellent and the staff helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay at the resort again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely resort for a quiet relaxing break"
Very well maintained resort. Good quality food, but not enough variety of menu across the range of restaurants. Staff very helpful especially reception/activities team. Try and get an all-inclusive deal, for best value or the charges for extras can be quite high.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel - Great staff"
Beautiul location. Excellent beach and watersports. Very helpful and friendly staffGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good resort with some flaws"
Overall a great stay thanks mainly to the experienced front-line staff. First night was a disappointment due to a broken lock and a broken shower - none of which got fixed while we stayed in the room. However, next day the duty manager R.C. upgraded us to a much better room for the remaining two nights of our stay in order to compensate us for the ordeal […] of the first night. This certainly worked and we were generally very happy with the last two nights of our stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It is a good resort with lots of different activities. The staff are laid back and on the whole wanting to make your stay as pleasurable as possible. They are very focused on trying to get you to return to their island. Sadly, we have two main disappointments from our stay. Firstly, we thought we were booking the pool that was shown on the Expedia description. […] However, this pool is an 'infinity' pool. Most of the villas have 'plunge' pools which are actually slightly larger then hot tubs. This was a huge disappointment as we booked the two-bedroomed villa thinking we would be getting the pool shown on the Expedia advert. Secondly, the kid's club was hit and miss. Out of the whole week our son attended two sessions. Not the club we expected and certainly not what was advertised. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A good choice for a family with kids from 7-16 yrs"
A very good choice for families - we stayed in a two bed villa which we found very comfortable and spacious and the abiltiy to make simple snacks in the room for kids was great. The beach and the water sport facilities are very good and appealed to an 8 year old and 13 year old. The service ranges from excellent to being ignored and verging on rude […] depending on the person you are dealing with. In one instance we had to enlist the help of the genral manager just to make a reservation in one of the hotel restaurants. That said it did not spoil the trip nor the overall experience which still comes down on the positve and we may well return. I would recommend this for stays of 7-10 days.

"Hotel accueillant de style méditerranéen"
Nous avons passé une nuit dans cet hôtel, et en avons été très satisfait. Très bon accueil, beaucoup de charme, grande villa (d'un confort simple mais avec unb très grand lit et tres spacieuse et lumineuse), il règne une très belle ambiance dans cet Hôtel. La plage est très agréable , le cadre du resto l'Upper Deck intimiste et très plaisant et la nourriture […] était bonne, le seul bémol est le resto buffet petite dejeuner, pas terrible (ni cadre intérieur ni nourriture peu de choix et 34 dollars le petit dej buffet très cher pour ce que c'est). Je recommande cet hôtel pour son cadre et son ambiance relaxante. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"TRES BEL HOTEL"
Très beau site (la moitié face mer d'une colline). Pas éloigné de l'aéroport de Castries. Cependant, location de voiture conseillée; l'hôtel étant un peu à l'écart, mais des taxis sont disponibles. Propreté et entretien parfaits, restauration correcte.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

We stayed 10 days at the Windjammer's Landing on honeymoon and we had the best time. We were most positively impressed by the food, which accommodated also gluten intolerance. The staff was extremely friendly and nice and the place was extremely lively and fun. The only reason why I am not rating it as "Excellent" is because our room (106A) was absolutely charming and romantic, but a bit dusty. And during a particularly intense rainstorm, we actually discovered that the roof was leaking a little bit (nothing major). The other low point was the restaurant Papa Don which wasn't very good. On the other hand, the Upper Deck restaurant was excellent and the bbq on the beach very extremely good too. I would suggest booking excursions with the hotel as their excursions are a bit cheaper. If you are choosing the travel agent's excursions, then I would suggest trying "Land and sea". It is a bit expensive but you really get to see a lot of the island attractions.
"Better than average"
12/24/14 guestM7448BV Ontario, Canada
Excellent service with a smile Excellent food No much to do for older kids who are not yet teenagers (ie. 11-12) Shops, etc. in town do not accept $100 bills, so carry smaller bills. They aren't too fond of ripped or soiled bills either. Excellent shuttles around the resort Beach is not crowded Furnishings and appliances in villas are getting dated and tired, but still function
"Awesome 20th Wedding Anniversary Getaway!"
12/22/14 Robert F San Francisco, California
We picked this resort on advise of a friend and we are so happy with the results. There are so many employees to thank for their superior service! From the reservation process to the check out, I could not have been happier! 6 months of planning and my expectations were surpassed! Housekeeping was great, the food and beverage selections and operations were awesome. OOO Yes, the private dinner on the beach was worth every penny and moment, that will last us a life time! The beach, boat usage, skiing and watersports also added to our great time. Thanks to all!
12/22/14 David J T Charlottesville, Virginia, United States
Windjammer does a fabulous job of taking care of you. The views from the Villas are breathtaking, the restaurants are terrific, and the beach, swimming and water sports offer something for everyone. We have gone back to vacation there for 8 years in a row and can't imagine anything better!
"Best vacation ever!"
This is the first time I ever write a review for anything. I had to take the time because this resort is just amazing. The staff are genuinely so nice, accommodating and helpful. We loved Lindon and our housekeeper Christianna! The excursions are so fun and so well priced! Every excursion we went on, they did more activities than we thought. The food was so good! The beach was beautiful and clean. The watersports were awesome! All inclusive is the way to go. I've traveled a few times in my life and I've always said I'd never go anywhere twice because I would like to see as many different places as I can. But now that is not true! I would go back to the windjammer over and over! The only thing we would change is not driving to the resort from the airport. The ride was horrible...made us both nauseous! We would spend the money on the helicopter. And ignore the negative reviews. We looked at them before we went and none of them were true for us!
"Your own private villa but still in a hotel"
12/21/14 C47TER Newcastle, United Kingdom
Fantastic, fully equipped rooms with your own pool for each villa block. Great food... Take the all inclusive if you can because it can be quite expensive when you get there. One of the nicest beaches in St Lucia and the service is amazing considering the you are on island time! A must stay!
12/21/14 BKuhlmann New York City, New York
We stayed for a week at Windjammer Landing, and on the whole it is an excellent experience. The private beach is fantastic, and they do a nice job of setting it up for people who are swimming, water sports, kids who are having fun, and people who want to just relax. The villas are built into a cliff, so it's a rewardless and uncomfortable hike up and down, so everyone uses their complimentary shuttle service. This worked very well, and you never have to wait very long for a shuttle, but in general I'm not a huge fan of having to use them and being far enough and high enough away that you have to. The plus side, though, is that the villas have amazing views and feel very private. Our villa was a one bedroom with a private plunge pool. The views were amazing, the pool was fantastic. You can open several sets of doors and windows and basically feel like you're outside. It was fantastic. However, I do have a couple complaints. For a resort of this caliber, I feel that the level of maintenance should be sterling. I completely understand that on an island like this there are constant considerations- the humidity, the available facilities, etc. However, after only half a day, maintenance rang our bell asking to take a look at our walls. They were working on the villa upstairs. He confirmed we had water in our walls, as the plaster was buckling in places, but that they would fix it after we left. Consequently some of our light switches stopped working. In addition, one of our bedside lamps didn't work, the toilet ran, and there were a lot of insects. Again, things I can look past, but not what I was expecting. The worst were the grounds crew and construction. Two days in a row, weedwacking and leaf blowing started early and lasted hours. They walked all around our villa and were so loud and disruptive we had to leave. The villa smelled like gasoline and grass, and they kicked up rocks and plants into our pool. I understand the grounds must be maintained, but I think at the very least they shouldn't start at 9 am. Maybe in the afternoon when people are on the beach. Then there was the construction. We were told that the hotel is expanding and would be shut down for the most disruptive of the construction. We went after it reopened and was supposedly finished with the most of it. Well no. There were a couple days on the beach that nearly everyone had to leave due to a caterpillar machine which was so loud and screeching that it couldn't be ignored. Again, I get that the hotel needs to expand. However that was inexcusable. They should have kept the hotel shut down longer. Absolutely inexcusable. I probably won't come back because of that. Obviously the construction would be done, but it truly ruined some of my vacation and I feel that in a hotel of this type and expense, it should not have happened. The food was fine but definitely overpriced for what it was. The staff was friendly on the whole. Not a fan of the activities ambassador who tried to upsell us by shaming us into more adventurous tours, and didn't tell us important details for the tours we did go on. (Like that swimming would be included later- the Windjammer people watched as the Sandals people swam in the ocean...) On the whole there are some great things about this place, and some not so great things. In principle it should be perfect but in practice- definitely not quite as luxury as I expected.
"Highly recommended for a clean getaway"
12/20/14 Barry D
We spent Thanksgiving at the Windjammer Landing ... 8 days. It's one of several excellent choices on St Lucia, and it hits a good balance between price and amenities. The rooms are terraced up the mountain, and are very private with great views of the bay. We usually chose to walk up the hill to our rooms -- good exercise -- though shuttles worked well, too. We did not go all inclusive ... this would have given us too much food. Instead, the 20 minute walk to the main road and island bus (cheap!) to a grocery store worked very well -- taxis are great, but not cheap. The restaurant food was pretty good and there were healthy and unhealthy choices -- I ate unhealthy choices and was happy. The entertainment was spirited and fun, and it's best to have a rum punch at all times ... they're good! There were enough good tours to keep us interested -- recommend hiking tours. Special plus: the Italian restaurant, with great food and ambiance, and where manager Gloria Alexander made us feel very welcome, and accommodated unusual requests with charm and grace ... highly recommended. Regrettable: front desk was often borderline surly and often gave wrong advice (e.g., what time are Sunday church service?) -- best to ask questions elsewhere. Good news/bad news: TV had lots of channels, and Wifi was good enough. Good news: Beach and chairs were always well maintained and set up -- with the food very close, it's easy and fun to spend the whole week there. Aquatic center was well stocked, well maintained, and very reasonably priced (often free). Scuba diving with Donovan was a dream ... best divemaster and dive crew I have ever seen -- cheerful, expert, safe, and fun. I'd come back next time for a month or two or three ... sorry to leave. One thing: find a way to fly into STL instead of the main airport ... STL saves bunches of time and taxi fees.
"Great choice for st Lucia"
12/19/14 Laurent G New York City, New York
We spent half of our 4-night stay in St Lucia at the windjammer and were very pleased with our choice. The windjammer offers all you need to enjoy a sunny break in the Caribbean: - the beach is very nice and clean and has many chaises to choose from. Beautiful sunset views too - the resort has plenty of pools and restaurant options. We decided to have dinner outside but enjoyed the breakfast buffet and some appetizers with drinks at the bar on the beach - staff is super friendly and professional - property is well kept and maintained - our room was large and comfy and had good amenities - room price was affordable- found it was great value

we just got back from a week at the Windjammer Landing..We stayed in villa # 500, beautiful view of the ocean..We had a 2 bedroom with a private pool on our deck.. The resort is set high on the hill which makes for beautiful views.. Our suit was clean , the staff was great.. We enjoyed the shuttle rides up to our suite.. We took a chartered boat ride with Exodus and captain Del.. We snorkeled and Captain Del was very informative about the island and we enjoyed him very much... I loved how there were no waves at the resort beach area, made it easy to swim and kayack.. Really had a relaxing and wonderful time at the Windjammer..We traded out timeshare to go there and will definitely go back..Great vacation, beautiful area and resort..Paradise....
