A Good Family Vacation Resort in St Lucia

Aug 4, 2008
If you are looking for an affordable family vacation in a luxury hotel and resort then check out Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort.

The family vacation resort of Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort is situated on Labrelotte Bay reasonably close to the town of Castries, in fact about a 15 minute drive.

It sits on a forested hillside, covering in all about 60 acres, and has clusters of white villas climbing up the hill, so much so that if you are in one of the highest villas, you'll be kept fit by the climb. This is an all suite villa hotel, and the villas all have private plunge pools.

This makes the Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort a great choice as a family vacation resort because of the sheer space in the accommodation. In fact the villas can easily become anything from one to four bedroomed.

Equally the privacy of the stylishly decorated villas makes it a great honeymoon resort too, and if not that a good choice for a romantic getaway, with the separate living and dining rooms plus full kitchen also increasing the options in the villas.

The whole place has a Mediterranean village feel to it with the brick paths, and the sun kissed hillside overlooking a very pretty bay and beach.

There is a huge choice of restaurants in the 219+ unit Windjammer Resort, and in fact for the size of the resort you will have more choice than anywhere else on St Lucia. There are in fact five restaurants including Papa Don an Italian Trattoria for the pizza and pasta fiends, then Jammer's Restaurant and Bar is a steakhouse and Grill Bar, and the Dragonfly serves Asian and West Indian food. All beautifully prepared and presented. You can have dinner prepared and served in your villa, make your own meals, or eat in the restaurants. The chefs at the Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort are rated amongst the top in the Caribbean, and they are one of the reasons this place is rated a top Caribbean Family resort, plus the fact that only one restaurant doesn't allow under twelve year olds in for dinner. Another of course is the facilities, which includes a children's programme.

One strongly suggested option is to take the all inclusive vacation package if you like to drink alcohol. What is a very affordable family resort can become very unaffordable when you add a large drinks bill at the end.

There is little doubt that the Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort is a good quality luxury hotel and resort, with a high satisfaction ratio. What guests seem to like more than anything is the friendliness of the staff, the roominess of the villas, the plunge pools at the villas, the food, and the water sports.

If there were grumbles, then they were mostly minor, including only one of the restaurants did breakfast, and the steepness of the hill particularly with children after a day down at the beachfront There are shuttles, but not very often when you want one.

All in all as a family vacation resort the Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort does well. It is affordable, and the all inclusive option is a good one. It isn't totally a luxury hotel and resort, but it has a pretty good try, and would be a good choice as a romantic honeymoon destination especially if you book one of the very private villas.
