We have been going to the Windjammer resort in St Lucia for the past 3 years, and while we love the resort we would like to try something new... We will be traveling with 4 adults and 2 children ages 6 and 8. Really want luxury without the super high luxury price tag... We have stayed in the Hibiscus units at Windjammer and loved the proximity to the beach and nearly private pool....So.. Here is what we love and are hoping to find.
1. We do not like a mandatory all inclusive meal plan.. At Windjammer (which is an all inclusive resort) We were able to utilize a non all inclusive fee and the ability to purchase meals at the resort and sample some of the local restaurants in the area.. We would consider an all inclusive resort (if we had at least a small kitchen and the food was truly amazing). I do have to say that the adults are really foodies and I, myself, have found the all inclusive resorts I have visited to be passable at best. Would like a 3 bedroom unit but 2 bedroom would be fine if fold out in the living room.
2. We would like a kid's club and competent babysitting when needed... also would appreciate a friendly staff..
3. Beautiful sandy beach with calm water and many water sports included
4. Paid excursions available
I know this is a tall order but would like some input.. We will be traveling in mid to late March.
Any suggestions much appreciated!
