“Great break wonderful food but not for those with limited mobility”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

Hotel is beautifully set even if it is along drive from the airport.greeting is great and reception staff are all very helpful and the concept of a personal ambassador is a nice touch.
The food throughout the resort is excellent but you need to stay all inclusive to get best value especially as the hotel is somewhat isolated unless you have a car. The steaks at upper deck are as good as you will find any where and the staff are all friendly and helpful if some times a little slow, carribean speed I guess.
The beach is good if not over large and there is never a problem with sun beds or towels.
The pools are cold and the sea is warmer and calm.
Water sports are very well run and plentiful
We had two problems ,one was towels in the room were erratic in supply and also when we were there they had really bad problems with their Internet.
The biggest point to know is that the resort is spread out on a mountainside and there are steep climbs to all the villas, so you mostly need to wait for the shuttles which run roughly every 15minutes.
Once the shuttle drops you off you still have steep steps to climb to the villas, this hotel is not suited to anyone with limited mobility, otherwise it is a good if not great choice on st lucia

We have been going to Windjammer since 1999, it's our home in the sun. Everyone is so friendly and just can't do enough for you. Our daughter first went at the age of 2, she's treated like family.

A wonderful resort with great staff, fantastic facilities that get better and better each year. If you want total seclusion or a party it's all here.

There is nowhere else i would rather go

Room Tip: The further up the hill the better the views and more peaceful not that it is noisy

Overall we had a lovely stay there. The villas are beautiful! The screened in porch was used so much, the dip pool was a nice touch, and we liked having a full kitchen. The water sports that are offered were a lot of fun, the people were friendly, and the weather was beautiful too. We did wish that there was better service on the beach for drinks and food but all in all a truly wonderful visit.

We have just come back from a wonderful week in St Lucia. We took a half term break with a 17,16,15 and 13 year old and they had a fantastic time. We requested a villa near to the amenities and were duly rewarded with a gorgeous place to stay a short walk from all the action. Our villa had three decent size bedrooms all ensuite fully fitted kitchen dining room with amazing view and lounge plus balconies.
On arrival we were created by the very happy smiley and welcoming Helen who continued to look after us all holiday.
We took the all inclusive option which was definitely worth it even if it just took the worry out of thinking each time the children had drinks how much it all cost !! The watersports were second to none all were included even the motorised ones e.g. waterskiing and the tube and Big momma rides. the only this you had to pay for is if you wanted a lesson. The waterspouts team worked really hard to make sure we were all happy and indeed safe. Thank you Gordon, Clint,Winston, Ezra,Kelcent and there was a lovely lady whose name we never got to know. Romanus' twice daily snorkel trips were fab too very interesting and Romanus was great captain and guide.
All of the restaurants were good and the service was too on some occasions there were a few mix ups with our bookings and these were very quickly resolved. Travis Barry and Elesha were excellent at the bar.
We has an excellent day with the dive people Judy was fantastic and the children loved the sea Karoke!!! A little bit of a shame we had to wait so long in the sea for the dive boat after the first dive as our faces all got very burnt. Fantastic to have seen a turtle though.
All in all would definitely recommend this resort for an all round excellent family holiday.
One thing I would say is don't forget to pack your mosquito repellent although they spray the resort twice a week, and most beds have nets if you are susceptible take something with you.

Room Tip: We had villa 36 good view and near to amenities

Wonderful in all ways. Nice beach, terrific meals served in restaurants. Fish dishes are outstanding and choice of restaurants without buffet feeding frenzy is truly wonderful. Very nice rooms. You should be aware that a shuttle is necessary for all but the hardy to get from your room to the beach and main restaurant area. Be sure to visit Papa Don's Restaurant located close to accommodations. Shuttle service is outstanding with shuttle arriving almost immediately, in fact it arrived on two occasions before we could put down the phone and walk outside. Staff is very helpful. The only negative is the drive from Airport to Windjammer, especially the portion through Castres, which took an hour of bumper to bumper, but I would return because it is so nice when you have arrived. The complementary snorkeling trip is worth doing.

Room Tip: All rooms have a view, but some are of another bay adjacent to the main resort beach.

We stayed at the windjammer for a week, it was soooo nice! All of the staff are so friendly and helpful which really makes you feel at home and our ambassador was Helen who was fantastic and so kind and happy. We also did a lot of waterspouts and the people there were lovely as well Romanus was a great snorkel guide Ezra was lovely also and Winston and Gordon were so funny! Everyone was so happy to help and they all seemed to really know what they were doing, they made my holiday!!!! I would definitely come back, the food was delicious and there was so much to do keeping everyone busy! Would definately recommend this hotel to anyone else!

definitely had a great time there. wonderful location, we had a great 2 beds villa with a pool, the view was stunning. there are various restaurants on site but papa dom is by mile the best...so all good except that the service was a bit disappointing....the restaurant on the beach had a very slow service during lunch time with staff not always friendly, the breakfast supposed to open at 7.30 am was never on time and starting 5 or 10 mns late, the wireless connection in the room was poor and nobody was able to fix it...too bad because overall it was a very good experience

Room Tip: don't take the rooms on the top of the hill...you have a great view but a bit far from the beach...
