“Absolutely Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2011

Had the best time in St Lucia and the Landings was a great place to stay. We are a large family with 6 children (ages 1-14 at the time; we actually stayed in May of 2010). We stayed in a 3 bed room villa. Very quiet. Nice view of marina. Loved the plunge pool. The kitchen was top notch, the bathrooms, the furnishings. This place was just amazing. Wish we could buy a villa. The staff was lovely and very helpful. The beach was great! Loved the service out on the beach. Hubby and kids kayaked to Pigeon Island. There is so much to do. Glad we stayed 10 days. Could have stayed longer. Great security on beach. The locals are very sweet. Enjoyed watching the local children in public beach next door. There are cows, horses, chickens that roam around in the surrounding areas. Our kids had a blast!

We spent just over 2 weeks in St Lucia this time, and enjoyed The Landings as usual. This is the first time I'm writing a review.

We stopped for groceries in Rodney Bay on the way from the airport as we are vegetarian and like to cook fresh produce for ourselves. The kitchen has up-to date appliances and amenities, beautifully equipped. It was a joy to use, nice than our kitchen at home! There was also a washer and dryer in-suite. One caution: be very careful to close the fridge and freezer completely as they don't close spontaneously by themselves.

Although there were only two of us, we had a 2-br condo, which was great especially after diving -- we could each take an immediate shower as there were 2 1/2 baths (master with bath/shower, 2nd bedroom with shower and a power room). Lots of closet space. TV in living room and both bedrooms. Two very large balconies, one overlooking the yacht harbour and one overlooking the beach and Rodney Bay. Very nice! Basically we paid for a harbour unit and got a beach view too. It was great having all the room for dive gear.

As requested, we got a 1st (not ground or 2nd) floor unit.

This is one of the very few properties on island which has A/C throughout the apartment, but we minimized the use due to the very high cost of electricity, about 5 times what we pay. During the day we opened the front and patio doors and at night just had the A/C on in the bedroom for part of the night, with the door closed. The bed was very comfortable and the room quiet. Overall the accommodation was excellent.

There is free wired internet in several places throughout the apartment, and free wifi in the Beach Club and the lobby. Apparently there are plans to upgrade the wifi.

Staff were amazing, remembered our names, and went out of their way to help us. There is a shuttle to Rodney Bay a couple of times per day but we either used a driver or took a local bus (which involves some walking to Gros Islet but is very cheap).

We ate at the Beach Club and also at The Palms once when a wedding took over the Beach Club. Excellent food and good value for money, and both with veg. options. We also went to the Manager's Cocktail hour and the following beach barbecue -- got a discount for being vegetarian (otherwise we wouldn't have done it). Great food again, and amazing entertainment from the limbo/fire dancers.

Lovely landscaping, nice pools, and a wonderful beach made it an exquisite trip. An extra bonus, for us as divers, was the fact that there is a true yacht marina so we could be picked up right at the dock. We have seen people staying at other resorts have to wade into the water to get onto dive or snorkel boats.

My husband had a massage at the spa -- excellent value (certainly better than what Sandals next door was offering) and one of the best he has ever had. As good as our masseuse at home who sees professional athletes. There are lots of nice extras, like a private steam/whirlpool and a goody bag with toiletries. There are also excellent amenities in the spa itself, and in the shower afterward.

The gym is spacious, well-equipped, and nicely cooled.

Although we didn't intend to buy, there were great deals at the gift shop so we both got Landings shirts. Finally, no surprises on the bill at the end.

Overall it was a wonderful stay and we plan to return yet again.

My husband and I stayed here on our first visit to St. Lucia. We were only in St. Lucia from Tuesday through Friday (only two full days), and found The Landings disappointing. Due to the short length of our vacation, we weren't interested in any of the "excursions" that the island has to offer; instead, we were looking for a great place to relax, eat well, etc. The pros and cons, in my opinion, were as follows:

Pros: very comfortable, well-appointed room (our "room" was actually more like a 2 bedroom/2.5 bath apartment, which came with a fully-updated and stocked kitchen, washing machine & dryer, etc.); free in-room internet (via ethernet cord); two big balconies -- one with a harbor view, and one with a view of Rodney Bay; nice pools; 24 hour (free) gym; several wonderful lunch/dinner items on the Beach Club menu (the other restaurant was closed during our stay).

Cons: the Beach Club menu is the same for lunch and dinner, and the complimentary contentinental breakfast was terrible; the staff is cordial, but we found that they didn't go out of their way to make your stay comfortable (for example, the resort has several tennis courts and offers free racquets, but you have to buy tennis balls from the front desk for $10 USD. When we asked the front desk if we could buy tennis balls, they said that they were out, but did not offer to get more for us); the resort is a 1.5 hour drive from UVF airport.

We probably would have gotten more for our money from an all-inclusive resort, as we didn't realize the dining options in the hotel and surrounding area would be so limited (yes, we could have utilized our kitchen, but we didn't feel like going back into town for groceries or spending our time cooking). I doubt we'll be back to St. Lucia, but if we do go back, we'd go for a longer period of time, and to a different resort.

My husband and I stayed at The Landings in June for 5 days. I researched hundreds of resorts and read Reviews on Trip Advisor before booking and we were not disappointed at all! We thought the resort was magnificent! We had pretty high expectations and they were all met! We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa right on the beach and it is worth it to spring for the beachfront!
We took the helicopter transfer to the resort and this is a MUST do! They land you at the smaller airport which is about a 10 minute drive from the resort and they have a luxury car ready to transfer you. The drivers were all so helpful and friendly! The taxi cab fares were
pretty cheap but you didn't have to be driven far to get anything you could want. The
Rodney Bay shopping mall was about a 5 minute drive and there were 2 grocery stores and many other shops there....along with tons of restaurants (BIG CHEFS is a MUST....an absolute MUST)!!!!!!
The concierge desk is over the top helpful! (ask for Daniel) The resort was not very busy so it was not difficult planning excursions and getting drivers. We toured the island by catamaran and enjoyed it. It was about 100.00 per person but worth it! The lunch on the excursion was bad. The view of the Pitons from the water was breathtaking!!! I don't think you could possibly get the same effect from the road. You get to tour the Botanical gardens, the volcano, hot springs and cocoa plantation on the excursion. It lasts all day and I mean all day but again, worth it!
We loved the locals! It was just a great place and great people. The street party in Gros Islet on Friday night is worth the trip too. Fun
Lace and fun to interact with the locals. The landings is located on the North end of the Island and I would recommend staying on this end (except for the tour). We were never haggled to buy anything and never felt unsafe. Top notch resort with top notch service! We would highly recommend!

I found this resort through SniqueAway. This is the first time that I ever took advantage of this website. Being someone who is a bit of a travel "snob", I seek out 5 star hotels and like plans to be organized and professional. I instantly fell in love with The Landings and would highly recommend this hotel! Not only was the hotel and beach area beautiful, the rooms were extremely spacious with 2 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, gorgeous kitchen, dining and living spaces, front porch and a back porch with a jacuzzi. The hotel was very professional and extremely helpful in organizing transportation, island adventures, and evening events. They also organized transportation from the airport and this connected me with OTBP (Off the Beaten Path) Services. Owin Antoine is the owner and was our tour guide and taxi service for the rest of the trip. I did the day tour with Owin and got to see and learn so much about St. Lucia. It was a great deal and a great opportunity to mix and mingle with the locals.

You can't go wrong by staying at The Landings!!!

I love this place. I stayed in 2010 and this year. What you see on the wbesite IS what you get in person. The villas are GORGEOUS. When you check in, you're greeted with either a complimentary rum punch or fruit punch. They have some of THE BEST staff ever; always helpful and courteous. The architecture is so beautiful in the main building and the view onto their harbor is breathtaking. They drive you to your villa on a golf cart and then bring your luggage up to you. This year our villa was right on the water. There is a full kitchens with every appliance imaginable, so it's good if you want to cook, make margaritas, bake a cake, etc. Perfect for a family/group on a budget. They provide dish detergent, detergent for the dishwasher, paper towels and of course dishes, silverware, pots and pans. There is a washer and dryer in each villa, also provided with soap powder. The grounds are kept impecable. The pools are gorgeous and the harbor is beautiful. Wi-Fi is available, but only at the main building and I believe the restaraunt area.
The restaurant....not one of my favorites. The staff there are nice for the most part, but don't seem to understand that when you come to eat, you don't want to wait 30-50 minutes for your meal.
The ONLY thing I didn't like about our room is the fact we were right beside the restaurant so we could hear them at 7am getting breakfast prepared.

Room Tip: Rooms on beach are great...except near restaurant
