How to Get There
I just returned from my all-inclusive stay at the Windjammer Landing and let me tell you, this place is fantastic! I am a travel agent and this was my first trip visiting an all-inclusive resort in the Caribbean and now everywhere else I go is going to have to compete with the Windjammer. From the immaculate rooms, numerous water activities to the delicious variety of food and drinks, this resort really made my trip unforgettable. We stayed in the Hibiscus Suites which were conveniently located in close proximity to all of the resorts pools, restaurants and beach. Our balcony featured a hot tub that overlooked the pool and ocean which was probably my favorite part of the trip. Although there are several villas located all along the hillside of the resort as well as beachfront, the resort was very quaint and cozy which allowed me to feel comfortable and make my way around the resort with ease. Each restaurant offered a variety of delicious food that tasted fresh and each dish was presented beautifully. The only thing I wish this resort had was a little bit more nightlife for young adult travelers like myself (I'm 23) but again this is more of a quaint/ relaxing resort rather than a party-ish type of resort. The Jammers Bar was fun at night when there was live music but it normally ended around 10:30 pm but we still managed to make our own fun. Other than that, this resort is perfect for families, honeymooners or even you and your best friend who are looking to get away for a relaxing few days. I'm very excited to sell this resort to my future clients and travel back there myself. :)
Having never visited St Lucia we were to a great extent booking our holiday blind aside from Trip Advisor and other reviews.
After the long flight from the UK we had a private transfer to the hotel. Our vehicle was a small minibus in good condition with good air conditioning and a very pleasant driver who couldn’t help enough. The journey is about 1 hour 20 minutes and whilst up and down various hills from the south of the island to the north it was not scary as has been written about by some and you get to see some interesting sights.
Arriving at the resort you are greeted with a cold towel and drink as you check in, all very pleasant and most welcome. Lindon on the front desk was professional and we were checked in within minutes. You are provided with towel cards to exchange for towels in the towel but just to the right of the Embers restaurant.
We had room 119 which is uphill and overlooking the right of the resort. The views are great because all of the rooms are uphill. I don’t mean a little bit, I mean uphill! However the walk past Papa Dons restaurant to our room took about 10 minutes and was a great way to burn a few calories! There are shuttle buses driving around and if walking isn’t your thing or your room is higher than ours was I suspect you’ll use them. To get down again simply call reception and one is on its way to collect you - simples!
The room was well appointed, clean tidy with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen and a large balcony. Fresh towels everyday and bed linen once a week (I think!). The kitchen has cooking facilities but no washing machine which I understand some rooms have and it would have made sense to have them in all rooms I guess? The view was ????
The showers were great and the beds very comfortable.
The resort is within a bay and having two children (9 and 13) there was plenty to do. Ours very quickly made friends and then they were off......that said we were on the beach and could see them at all times. The beach has a large number of sun beds and some wooden umbrellas. If you want one it’s a bit of a bunfight first thing and towels are placed on beds.....not sure about that one!
There are free water sports and they are extremely well organised, I went sailing and waterskiing and my thanks go to Anthony and his team who got me back on two skis after a short break of some 40 years since I last had a go as a young lad. Late pm and there are banana boat or ring rides. Simply sign up and you are guaranteed to have some fun!
There a number of restaurants and without doubt the food is lovely and the service brilliant. We were all-inclusive and that meant whilst everything was included we had to sign for everything. I found the best way to deal with that was to have tabs running at various bars and sign once a day at each bar. Bear in mind that not all are open everyday each week and you do need to book all except Jammers. We didn’t venture off the all-inclusive menu, Upper Deck does offer additional steaks and lobster but I didn’t feel the need simply because the standard menu was great. Personally
I think the food and service were both great, the surf and turf especially good which I had a few times resulted in a perfect meal every time!
We booked two trips in the speed boats through Tyler (I’ll review that separately) and whilst he’s not associated with the hotel he is based on the beach, the trips were brilliant and I can’t thank him enough for looking after us.
In short it’s a great resort and we had a fantastic holiday and are all disappointed to be leaving and coming home. We also met some great new friends (we found it’s and great social resort if that’s your thing) and we wouldn’t hesitate staying at Windjammer Landing if we return to the island.
Thanks Windjammer Landing for a great holiday, we will all miss you!
Another super holiday. Thank you Windjammer Landing. We look forward to our return in December 2019.
Service, food and entertainment all fantastic, again. A place we bought into 12 years ago, as timeshare owners, we have no regrets, way would we.
