This place is all it advertises to be, it is an older place but very well kept and very clean. The bathrooms can use a bit updating but they are clean and neat. the grounds are just great and the little extras that they advertise are A number 1. you could not ask for a nicer staff, and really just...

The Windamar is located near several other gay resorts. There are nicer options, but they are more expensive. Expect a more down-to-earth feel here, and a more relaxed crowd not afraid to get frisky on occasion (bsmt area). If that's what you want then be sure to plan your trip over a 3rd Saturday night of the month - you... More

After a brutal Chicago winter, I stayed at Windamar for a few days solely to get some some sun and heat. The exterior of the property is well maintained and you can tell they've been painting. They do need to replace or better clean some of the deck chairs and other seating. On the interior, the rooms seem spacious if... More

My partner and I stayed here for a few days in early May. Pros: 1. Vim, the resort manager, was very kind and helpful. He left us detailed information about the gay nightlife and took the time to make us feel welcome on our first day there. He was the best part of our stay. The gentleman who came to... More

I stopped into the Windamar to defrost after a trip to Antarctica and Chile. Arriving there at 5am when reception was closed but their instructions for this were clear and easy to follow. Some of the other guests even helped me into the hotel with my large bags and showed me where my room was. What a great welcome!! So... More

Have been a guest on several occasions over the last few years. Have got to say that many of the issues regarding the place Have improved. Finally finished the painting(exterior), and the landscaping much improved.. However, the pool furniture (what little they have) is STILL disgusting and uncomfortable. Have yet to ever see anyone hose the decking and furniture off... More

I was in Ft. Lauderdale on a business trip and had an unexpected free day and wanted to check out the beach and possibly have some nude sun bathing time. I didn't feel like driving all the way to Haulover since the weather was overcast and opted instead for a day pass at Windamar. The hotel is really only 2... More

I have been coming here for 6 years and it just keeps getting better and better. They have now installed extremely comfortable king beds in a lot of rooms. The staff is very friendly and helpful, they make staying here a joy!

Check in: Check in with Vim was ok. He was friendly. Was a little disappointed that we weren't give a quick tour of the place so we knew where everything was. But we figured it out quickly. Would have helped if we were given the internet code at check-in as well. Couldn't access the internet until Day 2. Room: Our... More
