How to Get There
We stayed here as part of the second leg of our Honeymoon in May. We were travelling from New York, and after a delay in our flights, we finally arrived. First thing to mention is that we booked a transfer with the Hotel, but they weren't there when we arrived at the Airport. It turned out they got the wrong Airport and apologised. We sorted a local taxi and it was completely fine in the end, but was a little stressful at the time.
The welcome at the resort was fantastic. Rum Punch Cocktail, cold towel and fantastically friendly Reception staff. We were taken to our Villa, which was absolutely fantastic. A really great space, and fantastically appointed. As it was our Honeymoon, we were a little disappointed not to be upgraded for our Villa to include a private pool (as we'd read about a lot on here before arriving), but we understand that their might have been multiple reasons for this not to happen. It doesn't affect my review in any way, but was just a little disappointing. The room we had booked was fantastic however, with every thing thought of and fantastic facilities. The private balcony had fantastic views out over the sea, and the kitchen was well-stocked with loads of equipment ready to make anything you could possibly want. This was great as we spent a lot of time in the room, and enjoyed making breakfast in our Villa each morning.
The Resort itself was brilliant. Great Beaches with plenty of space, and loads of hidden Pools and places to relax and get a bit of privacy. We found a great little spot by the Italian Restaurant that was completely empty, meaning we almost had a private pool and Jacuzzi to ourselves for a few days.
The Restaurants were of a good quality, and varied in what they offered. Although we didn't eat out every night, the times we did we ate at the Italian Restaurant and the Steakhouse. Both were great, with good service and surprisingly authentic Pizza and Steak, considering we were in the Caribbean! The Lunch Spots and Beachside Tiki Bar were great, and the Frozen Daiquiris and Sandwiches were great during the day.
My Wife went for a Manicure whilst there, which she absolutely loved. Super friendly staff, and a great service. The resort kindly offered her a discount on this service due to our Honeymoon, which was greatly appreciated.
The on-site shop was absolutely comprehensive and well-stocked, and although a little expensive, it was relatively good value when you think it's a shop on a hotel complex. They could charge a lot more! We got Bacon and Eggs from there, which made for a fantastic breakfast! A little tip is if you do have a kitchen, ask the Taxi Driver to stop off at a Supermarket on the way to the resort. We stopped off at the 'Massy Stores' Supermarket which was very close to the resort. They accepted US Dollars, and the selection was pretty great. We stocked up our fridge with snacks and drinks, and of course Rum!
The main negative I can think of with the resort was the slight pressure with Time Share sales and Excursion sales people. They were on the whole friendly, but we were interrupted a few times when we were just trying to relax. When we visited the resort was quite quiet, so this might explain the extra attention, but it did stick out to us. We also experienced some building work going on the apartment next to ours, but when we mentioned it to reception it was dealt with quickly and in a friendly manner.
Overall, we really enjoyed our time at Windjammer landing. It was our first time in the Caribbean, and we had a really relaxing stay. There were a few slight problems, but the fact that everything else was so perfect probably made these issues stand out a little more than usual. But we'd love to come back (When we can afford it), for perhaps a special anniversary. And next time we'll book 2 weeks instead of 1 so we can really enjoy the place and relax properly. So I think that says it all!
We loved our stay at Windjammer Landing! We were on the all-inclusive plan, which I highly recommend as individual food and beverage prices are rather high throughout the island. I had the most amazing filet at the steak restaurant - if you love steak it's a 'must'! We had a lovely 2-bedroom villa with a full kitchen and a large patio with views of the ocean - a beautiful place to sit with morning coffee or afternoon tea. The resort is extremely hilly so bring your walking shoes but there is a shuttle system if you want to wait for a driver (we preferred to walk). There was so much to do that we really ran out of time: kayaks, SUP boards, Hobie cats, water skiing, knee boarding, hammocks in the water, water aerobics, daily games/activities organized but the staff, daily and nightly live music at the bar, etc. There are multiple restaurants to choose from which is fabulous and I loved that everything was in close proximity - this makes Windjammer Landing ideal for groups as they will always be able to find one another! I would highly recommend Windjammer Landing but suggest you stop at the large grocery store on your arrival day if you do not have the all-inclusive plan. Excellent property for couples, families, weddings, divers, etc.
This is the best exchange I ever did in the 12 years of being an rci member. Actually it’s the only Caribbean exchange I’ve ever done, I always pay to stay in the Caribbean and it’s not cheap. it’s also the best island I’ve ever been to and I’m from the Caribbean so I’ve been all over. Firstly the people were so friendly and accommodating, best service ever.
Our villa #44 was a 2 bd with plunge pool and wow was it amazing. All 4 of was loved it. We were upgraded and I was so blown away the shuttle driver laughed at my reaction.
The 5 restaurants were great, I loved all. Embers and jammers for lunch, the fish tacos and burgers were great. In fact all the fish dishes were great, they were fresh we saw the fishing boat pull up on shore one morning, how much fresher can you get.
Dragonfly for breakfast and room service was really good, did not have to wait long. Upper deck and papa dons for dinner had a great selection. The food was also tasty not bland, but that’s always the Caribbean, great spicy tasty food. The drinks were also good, mixed drinks, milkshakes, smoothies, wine, everything. I’m sure I gained weight in those 4 days.
We were celebrating our 20th anniversary and my husband and kids planned a private dinner in the gazebo on the beach, the chef from upper deck really out did himself and so did Bernard our server, so friendly and professional. I was blown away.
The all inclusive is so worth it, I definitely recommend paying for the all inclusive, if not just for the water sports. So much variety. My boys had a wonderful time. Everything is included except for the waterskiing and sailing lessons which were reasonable. They both did both lessons. The staff at the water sports were the BEST. They took really good care of all of us. They treated my boys as their own especially Gordon and Stanley. They were so professional, knowledgeable and patient. We did everything except for the wind surfing. I felt like that was my second villa my kids and husband just wanted to do it all, we spent most of the day there. We did the kayak, peddle boat, banana boat,stand up paddle, sailed, and water skied.
We did not have time to scuba, next time. 4 days was not enough.
The shuttle service was efficient, sometimes we walked, those hills are exhausting though.
The hotel arranged airport transfers so we did not have that to worry about. Our driver was waiting when we arrived and was early and waiting on was on departure. So professional. The airport was only 10 to 15 mins away.
I was so looking forward to this resort booking a 2 bedroom 6/4 room with a private pool thru RCI- however I was sorely disappointed when we reached our room no plunge pool. I had not printed my confirmation so I had no proof and management wouldn’t budge claiming it would be a liability to give us a different room or what they considered an upgrade-now mind you the resort was maybe at 40% capacity. We have also learned from RCI that they only guarantee the unit size and that the resort has the right to make an adjustment to the room. Bottom line make sure you print your confirmation and beware that the resort may not give you the room you believed you booked. There are much nicer properties out there that are much closer.
Had $800 American dollars stolen out of our villa's safe. So what else is there to say. Management did nothing to help. We checked out on June 30 2018 and have heard absolutely nothing from the owners - Ellis Don, management or local constables
