“This is heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014 via mobile

This is a fabulous resort!!! We're here atm, having the best family holiday!! We're here with our 2.5 year old son & 6mth old daughter. We're here for two weeks so didn't opt for a hibiscus suite but have a lovely 2 bed villa with pool. It's villa 9 and I highly recommend it - it's not too far up the hill and has an incredible view. This isn't the most luxurious or plush hotel but it makes up for that with bags of character and a great Caribbean vibe - it's the friendliest & most relaxed place ever! And when I say it's not the most luxurious it's very nice indeed and has everything you need and is always clean & tidy.

The food has been excellent, it's our first all in holiday & we were worried about getting bored with the food but there's no chance of that.

There's no decision, this is a brilliant place to holiday and has made us very happy indeed :)

We just got back last night from our third trip to St. Lucia, second time to the Windjammer and that will be our go to spot ever year. Amazing food selection, quality, and servings; staff are friendly and cannot do enough for you; rooms are clean with breathtaking views of the oceans. The windjammer is made up of villas; so unique to the island, you feel as though you are staying among the trees, one with nature. Another bonus is how quant the resort is. Everything is central from the beach and while the villas are located up a hill, there is a shuttle at your beck and call all day.

Resort is great for couples or families alike. There is a kids club, great swimming, several pools, and a trampoline in the water...not to mention all of the inclusive water sports for the entire family.
The beach is beautiful, white sand, and the ocean floor is sandy. You wont be disappointed visiting the Windjammer, everything is simply perfect; it is paradise!

We will be returning to Windjammer Landing this year for the third time.. The resort is lovely and the staff very friendly and accommodating.. We especially liked the easy access to the kids club and watersports offered. We will once again utilize the services of Serenity vacations and tours for excursions and trips into Rodney Bay (great variety of restaurants). The staff is both friendly and reliable.

The Friday night buffet at the Dragonfly Restaurant is well worth a visit to Windjammer Landings for, whether you are staying at the resort or not. First off your senses are greeted with the tangy smell of smoked brisket and other delights at the carving station. If that is not enough to get one's mouth watering, the incredible salad / soup and side dishes definitely are. My husband had three helpings of the Tortilla soup and would have made an entire meal of it if not for the BBQ meats calling out to be tasted. The smoked brisket melted in the mouth. In addition there was pulled pork, BBQ chicken, sirloin steaks, smoked ribs, shrimp on a stick and a lovely fish dish as well. OMG it was all so good. Having seen the wonderful dessert selection, I saved room for the flan and was very happy that I did.

The price is a mere $95 EC which is about $35 US. A bargain at that price.

The sign hanging at the door states "Where there is smoke there is flavour" and I could not agree more.

Well done Chef Bill and team!

My wife and I stayed here for a very brief trip to St. Lucia. It was planned last minute and was our first trip to the island.

Our room was very spacious with a kitchen, living room and separate bedroom. We also had a balcony with a beautiful view. Our room had air conditioning throughout but note that there are rooms with "open air" living rooms, which can get a little warm. Also our room had an HDTV which was nice to have to catch up on news, although the cable can be spotty at best.

There are several resteraunts here and in our brief stay we managed to eat at Upper Deck (seafood), DragonFly (Carib-Asian), and Jammers (island/pub food). All of the food was fantastic. Food and drink prices were moderate. Having only been to the island once I can't say if they are high or low for a resort. There was a little market on property though that sold food, snacks, and drinks for reasonable prices which was a big plus.

The resort is right on the beach. It was very nice during our stay. Not too crowded and no hawkers which I saw mentioned in other reviews.

Lastly, plan for a 90 - 120 minute drive to and from the airport. It's a bit of a hike.

Room Tip: Higher floors will certainly enhance your view.

"Welcome to Paradise" was the phrase we heard every morning when we secured our spot on the beach. It was true, St. Lucia is paradise.

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at the Windjammer Landing upon the recommendation from a friend. We were not disappointed. From the rum punch at check-in to the day sail down the coast line, our honeymoon was memorable and worth every dollar spent.

The staff was friendly and attentive to our requests. We visited every restaurant on the resort at least once and were never disappointed. The WJL's cocktail menu includes fun, tropical drinks with fresh island ingredients. The local Piton beer is was excellent.

Our villa was clean and in order upon arrival and the room was turned early everyday. The housekeeping staff helped up snag a few mangoes off the trees outside our villa.

The only down-sides to the WJL (which are beyond the resort's control) are the distance from the main airport (45-50 min.) and hills/mountains that make up the resort's landscape. These do not deter me from giving it a 5 rating, however.

The resort picked my wife and I up at the airport and we had our own personal cab driver bring us to the WJL. We weren't in a crowded bus with other guests trying to check-in at the same.

The mountains add to the mystique of the resort and the staff does a good job with their shuttle service to/from your villa. If you have trouble walking/navigating hills, stairs, etc. then you should request a room or villa close to the epicenter of the resort.

All in all, we were beyond satisfied and plan to return!

We have just returned from our 10th year in St.Lucia. From the start, the "home " feeling was at play.
Our daughter and son-in-law from the UK were meeting us there. It was their first trip to the island. They arrived, we were delayed a day in Philadelphia. We had no way to reach them but reached our faithful taxi service- Peter Lord's group, and the resort.
Peter handled everything, explained our situation, got them settled at reception and the resort folks got them settled into our villa. What could have been unpleasant, was an introduction for them to the kind of place they were about to vacation in. Everyone is caring.
The resort itself continues to improve itself, year after year!
The rooms are gorgeous and spotless. The restaurants (there are 5) serve local cuisine, international cuisine and vegetarian. All beautifully presented.
The staff from upper management to the great guys who continually prune the vegetation are all
happy to help and greet us with smiles.
The views from our villa and the whole atmosphere make us come back year after year. And now our daughter and her husband eagerly await next year!

Room Tip: the room with the plunge pools are wonderful But all the rooms have great views!
