“Nice, but bed bugs!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Very nice hotel. Great service. Beautiful view (if you're on the beach) and a wonderful room (we rented a furnished condo).

They have some really nice real estate. You wake up and walk to the beach...that simple. The food is not that great and quite expensive. However, I think the Brits loved it as it has mayo in almost everything.

You're better off driving about 10 minutes into town and eating at the local restaurants as they have really good food.

Now here is the bad news: of the 3 of us who stayed at the 2-bedroom condo, one of us got severe rash on her body because of bed bugs. Really disgusting. It's a shame that a nice resort of this caliber would allow this to happen; a simple, thorough wash of the lined would solve this problem. So, if you're going to stay at this place, you may want to take your own sheets just to be safe.

Room Tip: Get the rooms that are on the beach. The views are amazing.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed most aspects of your stay. Sorry that we didn't hear about your stay while you were staying with us. We don't have bed bugs. Sometimes guests mistake sand fly bites as something else. Our pest control program is rigorous and has never found a bed bug. Thank you again for staying with us.

We just spent 8 wonderful days at The Landings in Rodney Bay, St Lucia. It was one of the best family vacations/destination we have ever had. We are a family of 5 adults and 3 small children and we travel quite a lot. At first I had wanted to rent a villa near to the Pitons for my family, it would have been a mistake! I decided on The Landings because of the beach, but there was so much more...The property is beautiful, our 3 bedroom villa (really a very large apartment) was just perfect, a very modern kitchen, (very important when you have a 4 year old, a 2 year old and an 8 month old) large verandah with hot tub, really large living room, spacious bedrooms and bathrooms and very comfortable beds and furniture.
Great staff, we had housekeeping twice a day, and they could not do enough for us. It is all the little extras that they provided that really impressed us, such as bottled water in the bedrooms every day....coffee and creamer in the kitchen, lots of towels, I could go on and on! There was also a washing machine and dryer... an unexpected plus.
I should also say that even though there are several villas there was no noise and we felt we had complete privacy.
Great beach restaurant, we had breakfast there everyday, beautiful and very safe beach, lots of towels, beach chairs, umbrellas....but I think what made is so special for us was the friendly and charming staff. They also have a "Kids Club" so parents can have a break!
The location of the hotel is close enough to Rodney Bay so it is easy to sample all the different
restaurants if you want to leave the property. It is only a short drive into the town, we like to explore so we did this a few nights, you don't have to, there are 2 restaurants at the hotel and they also offer room service.
By the way if you decide to rent a car go with a company called "Drive- a -matic" , good rental prices and new vehicles! We were very pleased with their service, we had to rent a van because of our large group and they did give us the best price on the island.
To sum up..... we had a fantastic vacation and plan to return next year. St Lucia is beautiful, well worth a visit, in fact just about everything you can wish for if you want to spend time in the Caribbean. And even if you do not have children still stay at The Landings, you will not regret it!
A very happy grandmother.....Thank you again The Landings and St. Lucia!

Room Tip: some of the villas are closer to the beach, a plus I suppose, but then again they will transport you...

Just returning from St. Lucia and stayed with my family at the Landings for a week in a two bedroom villa with a private jacuzzi on the balcony off the living room. The place is beautiful, luxurious, spacious with a fully appointed kitchen and 3 baths. The service is outstanding. We had breakfast at the Beach Club restaurant and ate dinner there a couple of times. The staff was very courteous, friendly, service was outstanding, food great! Special mention for one of the servers Trisha Phillip...what a sweetheart! She is beautiful inside and out. Went out of her way to make us feel welcome and make our stay extra special. Her service was above and beyond our expectations.... The beach at the resort is very clean, quiet, safe. The security guard was always there, inconspicuously. All in all a fabulous stay.
Please add more nightly entertainment. A game room with a pool table or some similar would be nice....

Room Tip: Can't go wrong with any rooms. All with beautiful views...

The Landing was better than I expected! When we arrived we were promptly welcomed and taken to our 2 bedroom suite right on the beach. The suite was very clean and modern with all the amenities . You literally walked out our back full wall sliders onto a covered porch with a private jacuzzi. Then down a short private path onto a georgeous beach with palm trees. There was always a nice breeze to help keep you comfortable.

We choose to take advantage of summer deals and got the full meal plan. The food was excellent and the server were very friendly! I would go back in a heart beat.

Room Tip: Any first floor beach view will be excellent

Spent a week at The Landings in St. Lucia and truly had one of the best vacations ever! The location on the north end of Rodney Bay near Pigeon Island is the best place in St. Lucia. The beach is beautiful, the waves are calm, and the water is crystal clear. The resort is made up of 25 separate buildings (with more under construction) with up to four floors each and 3 separate units on each floor. There are 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units, each with a fully equipped kitchen, dining room and living room, as well as a front and rear balcony.
My wife and I had reserved a 2 bedroom suite in building 7 on the 3rd floor. The front balcony faced Rodney Bay toward Gross Islet and the back balcony, which was large and had a hot tub, overlooked the marina. After eating out the first two nights, we took the convenient and complimentary resort shuttle to Rodney Bay Mall and bought groceries for a dinner in our suite. Discovered neither the stovetop nor the oven worked so we had to use the microwave. I hated to complain to management since everything else was so nice but Anna at the front desk was just wonderful. She moved us to a 3 bedroom suite on the 3rd floor of building 1 and it was truly amazing! The view was breathtaking! Living room with vaulted ceiling with an arched window opening on to the Caribbean. On either side were king size bedrooms and all three rooms opened onto a huge balcony with hot tub that is literally right on top of the beach.
Housekeeping cleaned and made beds daily and even came back at night for turndown service and a bottle of water on the nightstand. The service at The Landings is unmatched, whether its the front desk staff, housekeeping, the waiters and bartenders, or the security personnel. My wife and I wanted to take a day trip to Soufriere and the Pitons so Aresha with guest services arranged for a driver to take us anywhere we wanted to go on the island in an Audi A4 for a very reasonable price.
You definitely can not go wrong with The Landings and I give it my highest recommendation!

Room Tip: Building 1 is the best! Right on the beach and close to the beachfront restaurant. The higher up the...

THANK YOU for your stay with us. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your vacation. You described us perfectly, but to make a small correction, there is one unfinished building which will remain as-is for a long time. There is no construction going on. Thank you also for commenting about the great service you received from Anna and Aschelle. We too think that they are wonderful. We look forward to welcoming you back to Simply Beautiful St. Lucia and The Landings.

Words cannot express how wonderful this hotel and staff are (so I won't try and will let the pictures say it all). The place is amazing and the staff are the best. We shall be back as soon as we can. The staff did everything asked of them and the apartments were huge (suites in reality) and the highlight of the day was watching the sundown from the beach with a drink in hand - sublime.

This is a well maintained and beautifully presented resort of privately owned 2 & 3 bed apartments available to rent through a neat pooling system set within lovingly groomed, lush tropical greenery around a modern deep water marina.
Beach fronting or marina views offer varying aspects but all within moments from the bleached white sands and crystal waters of the private beach on Rodney Bay.
The place isn't pampered with resort shops or bars but has a good permanent bar/restaurant (and another for higher season and selected days) that serves good quality buffet and a la carte dining along with some punchy cocktails.
The place just offers a great taste of the island mood, with delightfully warm and friendly staff. Only one internet cable for the apartment and many sockets not working, combined with no wi fi in rooms and limited range in the bar, making dealing with work issues a pain, but maybe thats what I needed to really relax...just told the office I wasn't contactable and suddenly I really relaxed!
That really is the extent of any gripe as the combined location, quality, friendliness and beach made it a lovely place to spend 2 weeks,

Room Tip: we (wife and two 15 yr old boys) went for higher floor as they are brighter. Beach front would have...
