apartments are small and basic but do have a linea and face the ocean. Sun beds are free but you have to pull them a small distance to get to the sea. Swimming pool can be quite full at times. Overall a preasant small resort on the beach but nothing fancy.

We stayed at Windward Passage for a girls week. It started memorial weekend which was very busy but after Monday we had a very quiet relaxing time. Always found a chair to sit in, a table to sit at by the pool. The pool was wonderful temp. The staff was very helpful we forgot a cooler which they borrowed us... More

I should have followed the reviews more closely. The only people that get a decent room are the owners. We did an RCI exchange for a week, big mistake. The room was so dark and depressing we had to get out. Unfortunately, it was Memorial weekend, all hotels were full. So, we had to spend the night in this out... More

Close to the action yet private and relaxing resort on the gulf beach. Great pool, great spa, great staff, great location! Wonderful white sanded beach with resort located between the Fort Myers Beach pier and "time square" & Bowditch Park.

I am on my third night here and my unit is near the pool. It is 2:26am and people are still in the pool that closes at dusk yelling and screaming obscenities. This is the 3rd night it has happened. Staff is gone by 3 or 5pm depending on the day so there is an after hours number for problems... More

I can't imagine a better location on FMB. 1/2 mile or so walk down the beach to Times Square so a lovely short walk but far enough that the hotel (timeshare actually) is very quiet and peaceful. 3rd floor is great as you have a direct unobstructed view of the Gulf out one side, and a nice view of the...

We had a 1 bedroom full-kitchen condo one level above the hot-tub. The view of the beach and gulf was fabulous and convenient to get to. Beach chairs are provided no charge, as are gas grills for cooking. The pool is wonderful!! Saturday arrival is a definitely a time for patience crossing the bridge to the island. Plenty of restaurants... More

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
