My parents have owned a week at this location since I was a teenager. We have enjoyed this place for many years. This past June I took my lovely wife for her first visit to this spot. I knew it has always been my second home, but before taking the step of actually becoming an owner I obviously wanted her... More

Had a great time there. Just couldn't find a better place for beautiful sunsets. It could use some updating, but clean and the people working there were very friendly. They had by the pool a breakfast morning, a bingo evening, a hot dog lunch. We thought it was fun and gave us a chance to meet some wonderful people. Plus... More

We were looking for a last-minute summer beachfront getaway and found this resort through our timeshare. It is small and intimate; on the quiet end of the island so it was not crowded and there wasn't a lot of traffic on the beach. All the rooms have a gulf view with screened-in porch (although we only saw about 3 bugs... More

First of all, this time share is not a 5 star so know that up front. It's practical and I have to say the material on the couch is very uncomfortable. But with that being said, employees were nice and the location is great. You can walk 10 minutes on the beach and be to the pier and the center... More

Hi, This a great place to stay for a family or a couple. Very clean units and staff was great. On the N side of Ft. Myers Beach and the pier. You do not see the dolphins here as they seem to like the southern part of the beach area. That was disappointing but it is what it is. We... More

I have traveled to this resort for many many years...It has all the ammenities of home. Recent upgrades at this resort insures that it will be just as good for years to come. You are on the more northern part of the island...which is great for a more quiet environment. If it is the nightlife you crave...the good news is... More

We did not notice many positive changes. Always felt that we were a bother if we stopped into the main office with a quick question. Our unit was clean and quiet. Loved the Smokin' Oyster Bar in Ft. Myers Beach!!! The majority of guests were seniors. Some of the beach chairs need replacing with comfortable ones. Why are guests charged... More

We had so much fun at the Windward Passage thanks to the staff and mother nature. We changed our reservation to the WP at the last minute from another location just down the street and were so thrilled we did. It is a very family-friendly location, near to numerous restaurants and shops but far enough to avoid most of the... More

Direct oceanfront property: unit # 308: wonderful unit, screened in porch from living room to bedroom. Immaculately cleaned. Comfortable king size bed. The furniture is slighly dated but clean. Time share property that was very quite and plenty of parking. Nice property: free beach lounge chairs and you could rent a beach umbrella for $5 for the entire week. Nice... More

The place is ok to stay for a short period of time. As 1200 for the week being the cheapest rate its ok for the value. You can always hear the air conditioner in the other rooms and the ones in the room are a bit loud but work awesome. This place is definitely for older people to stay at.... More
