Stayed for 5 days after the Coconut Cove closed down....Windamar is owned by the same guys that own the baths in NYC & other gay establishments. They consider a renovation a coat a paint. The hotel is ok design wise but its a dump really. You can stay in nicer places for the same $$$ or less. None of us... More

The Windamar rooms are now clean, the video room has been remodeled and is very nice. New management behaves in a professional manor, the staff if nice and friendly. The rub for us is that the new rules and price increases have greatly reduced the number of guests and the cruising atmosphere. $ 25. Seems to be more than people... More

Well this is the most unusual place I've ever stayed. The rooms are clean and recently remodeled. Pool and hottub areas are well kept. However, keep in mind it's a small resort with only 18 rooms so there is not a lot of turn over. Now here is where it's gets interesting, the clientele is most unusual collection of gay... More

Windamar is a small clothing optional resort for gay men. (Very few actually wore clothes so if nudity is not your thing go some place else.) It's an older place but it's clean and well maintained. The pool is heated and hot tub refreshing. Great for late night swimming. All the patrons I met were personable. The rooms are nicely... More

I found most of the other guests to be polite and also friendly. The pool was great and the beach is a block away and Sebastian Beach is a short... More

Let me start with the good, the hotel is located a block from the beach. The prices are very good for the area, a bargain compared to the other hotels. The staff was very helpful and pleasant and the other guests were a friendly group of people. The rooms we had were a mixed bag, while clean and comfortable, they... More

Recently the hotel changed a lot, for worse, unfortunately. Guests were told not to do anything other than suntanning, swimming and eating. We stayed as a couple, but was told no kissing or touching in public. Sex between guests? The manager would kick you out immediately. No Cumunion parties any more. You might be bored to death, especially when the... More
