How to Get There
Quite a long review here but please read.
Plenty of availability on well kept beach - a big thank you to the delightful Dwain and the others whose names I do not know, all of them have a smile and 'good morning' for you.
Reception - all staff (but one, young lady with glasses) are super helpful and lovely so thank you Cheira, who has always been amazing, Anna and the others, sorry don't know your names.
You are assigned an Ambassador to look after you, ours was Essie who is incredible.
Lindon, Ian, Arlington are as special as the ladies.
Beach towels super soft and Colletta who runs the towel hut is the friendliest of people you would ever meet.
Breakfast at Dragonfly, service rather slow but the wonderful Cheryl and Nadia will always look after you.
Shuttle service excellent - John, Niles, Jimmy, Heston, Justin and Terry are so very helpful and a delight to talk to.
Gardens by North Point beautifully maintained by the wonderful Damien, although this year there was a lack of other gardeners and we felt that some of the gardens needed some TLC.
Beach bar great, ran mainly by the lovely Nona.
Jammers bar - definite improvement with service and staff, a special mention for a new trainee Matthew, such a charming young man - he will go far I hope.
The staff here are wonderful and really make the holiday special, now for the nitty gritty.
Windjammer need to improve in many ways if they want to be 'up there'
Many areas in dire need of TLC - Hibiscus lower pool looking rather scruffy, many of the steps in resort need attending to and more lighting at night. Gardens other than North Point - full of weeds and uncut grass.
On several occasions on checking our bill (folio) there were many mistakes but were soon rectified. Note - do check carefully as we had other clients bills on ours.
Communications between different departments can be sporadic.
No information brochure in villa, there is a weekly leaflet published (not always correct!) and a television screen in reception, but it would be nice to have something in your room.
No plate of fruit in room on arrival - that was the kind of touch that made things special.
No flowers in washroom any longer - again a touch that is missing.
One tap and the hand dryer in beach washrooms not working.
Food - I am really surprised by the positive reviews, as it has gone downhill, on two occasions we were not charged for our meals because they were inedible, fish over cooked and dry, vegetables generally only tepid. No consistency in what you are served and not served as advertised. There is definte room for a vast improvement here but I understand there is a new Food & Beverage Director - I really hope he can sort things out. I wish you well Shaun.
Nothing wrong with wine or beer EXCEPT wine is now served in plastic glasses in Jammers restaurent - totally unacceptable but I always asked for a glass and staff were more than happy to oblige in fact one of them said they were embarrassed about the plastic 'glasses'
Upper Deck - service remains very slow. (not charged the night we dined there, fish had a strange smell - did not want to risk it, vegetables lukewarm).
Dragonfly( ran by the great Benton) in the evening - no atmosphere/ ambience inside, outside terrace is fine, where Fish Fry is served.
Jammers - service good. Food variable.
Pappadon's re-opened after refurbishment still ran by the efficient, helpful Joyce, but again service very slow - hopefully just teething problems.
Accommodation - extremely disappointing this year, evidently they were trying to make Hibiscus suites look more modern - it wasn't good in many ways but they did change the furniture for me after 4 days!
Lack of equipment in kitchen, broken microwave and ice maker - these things should have been checked before arrival.
North Point villas outstanding, I feel not enough emphasis is being placed on some of the older properties.
Having had my moans I would however like to say that Windjammer is still special, mainly because of the staff, the beach and it is such a peaceful resort, only ruined by some noisey guests occasionally. Evening entertainment enjoyable and not intrusive.
Beach games ran by the extrovert Jackie and Kizzy - great fun.
Several guests I talked to are of the same mind as me but we really want Windjammer to be as good as it was and we wish you all well and would like to suggest you listen to the staff as they are the ones guests talk to.
We stayed here for a week in a one bedroom villa which was quite spacious with good views of the sea. The housekeeping service was great. Food choices are good if you don't want to cater for yourself. A 25 minute walk will take you to the supermarket if you don't want to get a taxi to Rodney bay. The Glace supermarket has an ok choice and is so much cheaper than the on site little market. We drank tap water all week and were totally fine. It is a quiet resort with little evening entertainment during October. It probably livens up when the season kicks in. Rodney Bay is $25 each way taxi fare. A good place for families and couples.
Great hotel, very good food, all rooms have a great view and the larger ones with pools and other amenities are just beautiful bonus. O also need to add that the beach is just yards away and there are inclusive watersports activities as part of the package.
The staff are really courteous and attentive, and I had the best time with all of them. Definitely would come back here, this deserves all the accolades it receives.
