How to Get There
Great staff, beautiful scenery, well appointed accommodation. Special mention to all the staff who are super helpful and friendly. Thoroughly recommend to anyone looking for a place in the north of the island. The water sports centre is fantastic and offers all kinds of activities - sailing, jetski, paddleboarding, kayaking etc and all the team there were great (Anthony, Stanley especially)
This was our first trip to St. Lucia and Windjammer Landing; we will certainly be back! Every Windjammer staff member we met and/or interacted with was friendly and helpful, going above and beyond to make sure we had everything. Anna at the front desk, and Rufus, one of the many shuttle drivers, were outstanding examples of the excellent customer care we received throughout our stay. Our room was comfortable, spacious, clean, and had a wonderful view. The walk up to our room from the lobby and beach, as with most of the accommodations, was strenuous; however, the constantly available shuttles eliminated that concern entirely. The choices and quality of the food available onsite in the 5 restaurants were very good. We initially included breakfast only with our reservations, but due to the cost of meals onsite and the distance to local restaurants requiring a cab, we upgraded to all inclusive and were quite satisfied.
This was totally an enjoyable vacation, exceeding our already high expectations. We'll be back.
We booked windjammer landing through British Airways as a special holiday for my 30th birthday. We decided to upgrade to a "Premium one bed villa" with a private pool. The greeting on arrival was lovely with hot towels and a rum punch. We were allocated villa 43B which has a wonderful view from the balcony to the sea and sunset. Please note that if you are booking this room type on British Airways then dont expect the ultra modern bathroom they show you as we got something very different (see photos). The villa (which is more of an apartment really in European terms) was lovely, lots of space great view. There were a few little niggles I.e tiles missing in the private pool which could also have done with a good clean! And the not so modern bathroom as we had been expecting. But on the whole we had a great stay. The breakfast staff at Dragonfly are wonderful especially Michelle and Liann. Theres a good choice for both buffet an a la carte. The staff at Jammers restaurant were all fantastic and super friendly, the manager Andrew even comes out to thank you for dining there at the end of your meal, the food here was also really good (try the cajun mahi mahi and creole rice) and reasonable prices. Embers beach bar has great food during the day especially the fish tacos. 96degrees bar is nice for casual cocktails. Papa Don's staff are wonderful especially June and the saffron risotto is exquisite. We chose to dine in the "Upper deck" for the evening of my birthday (2nd May) which was unfortunately a HUGE mistake- the woman who seated us was not friendly and welcoming in the slightest and the food was terrible - fish was really overcooked (bouillabaisse) to the point I left most of it, and my partners tuna sashimi was drier than the sandy beach! The waiter although friendly enough did not offer to rectify the issue and did not knock any money off the bill - this was the most expensive meal at the hotel and easily the worst by a long shot.... should have stuck with jammers! The housekeeping staff are wonderful - special thanks to Domnina and Christianna. Christianna is the perfect example of a warm, welcoming Caribbean grandma and kindly brought us some special local fruits from her garden when we told her we had been making smoothies in the villa. I would recommend that the hotel advertise why the tourist enhancement tax is beneficial to the island rather than just sticking it on your bill at the end of the trip - we chose not to pay this as no information was offered around it. The beach is pristine and the hammocks are very relaxing! Overall a great stay and I would recommend to friends and family.
Last year in 2018 I as a travel agent too a certification to become a specialist to be able to sell this property to my clients. In return for becoming a specialist they Resort Windjammer Landing would give a complimentary stay of 3 nights. When I emailed to book the dates I received and email from Denise Benoit stating that agents were only allowed to book within May 1st- November 30 2019 block. In addition needed to book 3 months prior to the dates. I sent an email again early this year submitting dates for May 2019 and was told by Denise Benoit again to email 3 months prior to the dates desired.
A group of friends and I are recently planning a trip to St. Lucia for July and I decided to call Windjammer Landing to inquire about the complimentary stay for the 3 nights. After speaking with Denise Benoit left a bad taste in my mouth about this resort. They are not honoring the original qualifications for the specialist program they since changed the program. In order to receive the complimentary stay the travel agents have to sell the property first bring clients in and then they will honor the complimentary stay. I stated to Denise that this should not be valid due to the fact that there was no email notification sent out. I asked her when where the agents notified of the change to the specialist program. Windjammer Landing should have sent an email to the agents who have already took the certification in advance explaining any changes. Denise stated there are well over 10,000 agents and they have been calling and we have told them. That is more of a good reason to send out an email to agents who have already taken the certification explaining any changes to the program, so agents wouldn’t have to call. As an agent I called believing that I had a 3 night complimentary and was unaware of any changes. I emailed back and forth with Denise and she never once responded stating any changes in the future. I am so disgusted and dissatisfied with the level of professionalism the Windjammer has displayed, this is not a good business practice and I will not be booking my groups stay with Windjammer Landing, I will be looking else where. I am certain there are lots of other beautiful resorts That’s are professional and have good business practice.
I have always wanted to visit st Lucia. It appeared to me like a mini Hawaii. The places to stay that were on my list were out of my budget so we booked an ocean view room at Windjammer. Reviews I read were all good and it did live up to the hype. The property is beautiful. You can do an all inclusive package or just breakfast. The breakfast buffet or a la carte menu is very good and the restaurant is on the beach. 2 of the other restaurants as well as embers bar are on the beach. Also what I wanted. Upper deck steakhouse is as good as NY steak houses. Embers had great drinks.
We did take one excursion from the windjammer on a catamaran to soufriere . They have many options to leave the property on an excursion.
Having said that, the only town close by is Rodney bay. We left for one night for dinner. It was a nice break. This was a quiet resort with no real activities at night. If you are looking for night life this resort isnt the place for you. If you want to relax and unplug it’s perfect. Water is calm and clear. Plenty of beach chairs and the staff is lovely.
