Dan, have seen several negative reviews on Windjammer Landing from people who said the service was rude, rooms leaked when it rained (yes, it does rain). One couple had all of their clothes soaked when a closet leaked during a rain storm. The management was beligerent and did not offer them any satisfaction. Can't recommend it

Windjammer is one of the resorts I jsut came across for our family trip - I have read many positives about the resort.

You can look at a site called "Caribbean Travel Roundup" - do not know if there are reviews of this particular resort but is a good source.

Dan, Since we leave in two days for Windjammer, I didnt appreciate the negative comment that you received to your question. You do need to read back further - many, many positive things. Don't judge Windjammer by one individual's comment.

Dan/Liz: Maybe put the comment in perspective. Bud is referring to a maximum of two negative comments out of 15 to 20 positive ones. And since Bud did not actually stay there, he is basically just relaying heresay. For some other reviews take a look at the reviews on this site (under rants and raves), www.wheretostay.com, www.caribtravelnews.com.

I am a web host technician and my job is to maintain web sites for many companies and many of them are travel BBs. Have seen more than a few negative postings on Windjammer Landing.

I loved the Windjammer. There is bus service at the end of the road ( about a quarter of a mile) which you can take to Roadtown and to the northern part of the island. they arranged excursions there and did A GREAT JOB.

We just got back from the Windjammer and had an incredible time. The shuttles up and down the property were great, and VERY necessary since the resort is built on a hillside with a spectacular view. I did get tired of walking up and down the hills very quickly in the heat and humidity. The beach is beautiful and quiet, the pools are great. Try the lower pool for action, the upper pools for solitude. Take advantage of the complimentary snorkel trips, kayaks and sailing right out front. It rained everyday...but only for a few minutes at a time a few times a day. It was VERY dramatic. And our room never leaked!!
I feel the ONLY drawback to the Windjammer is it's location. If you want to stay at the resort and/or go on the Suntour type day trips it's perfect (in fact it was difficult to get me out of there). But getting out by taxi is VERY expensive. I did not research bus service at all, but would do so next time. I have heard many good things about some local restaurants in Rodney Bay and Castries, but since we went all inclusive we ate at the resort. Going out to dinner every night would have cost a fortune due to the cost of the cabs. Although you must eat at the resturant on Pigeon Island. It's "jambe de bois" I believe.
We had four appetizers, all were great and you cannot beat the scenery. And you must see Pigeon Island. Climb to both peaks. You can do it! I did it in thongs!!

Whitney,

Thanks for the great info. I am so looking forward to going to the Windjammer, and your post as well as others really confirm my decision. Thanks for the info on cabs. We really want to experience island cuisine so I will budget for the cab fare. I will post my comments when we get back. Thanks again for the input.

I know this is a Windjammer Landing thread, but I must concur with Whitney that you must go see & hike Pigeon Island which we hiked last week-I walked up in sandals and thought the views were spectacular!
