If you have children and don't mind well used beds and furniture, this is your place! After five days of a seven day vacation we gave in and went home. The best I gain give this tired old "resort" is that it was half a block from the marina where I kept the boat. Oh, and it is beachfront.

I have been coming here every summer for 24 years with my family. The staff is always nice and helpful. You can't beat the location, the price. It is a family feel with kids in the pool and families at the bbq. The hotel is a bit dated with older kitchens and fixtures like closet doors and the decor but... More

My family has stayed at Windward Passage several times. We always rent a one or two bedroom unit facing the beach. Each unit has a full kitchen with everything you need for a great vacation. You are right on the beach and also have a pool and hot tub located on a nice deck with chairs, tables, and umbrellas. There... More

Stayed here for a week. The management couldn't have been any nicer. Our room overlooked the ocean and screened patio was a nice place to relax. We didn't use the pool, too many kids. Great location..only a mile walk down the beach to many restaurants. Beds need more padding, but were clean. We had a 2 bedroom was spacious and... More

Thank you for your very nice review. We wish all of our units faced the Gulf of Mexico. However, our villa one bedroom units are more spacious than those directly facing the beach, and it's just a few steps further to the pool and beach. We look forward to seeing you again! More

The website and pictures do not do this place justice, excellent location overlooking the gulf. All the rooms on the beach have a gulf view. I was on the second floor over the pool area and it was fine, no noise. The bedroom is on the other side of the building facing the parking lot. I was in a 1BR... More

Made an RCI trade into this property. Stayed in Unit 1. Older section of the resort. One of the advantages of this unit was not being disturbed by pool noise. Very quiet. While it's not a glamorous or luxurious resort, it certainly met our needs. The resort very kindly moved us to a first floor unit because of mobility issues... More

Positives: Windward Passage is very convenient to FMB restaurants and shopping, either by walking the beach or a 10-15 minute walk on the sidewalk. The lovely gulf front location provides a relaxing view and easy access to the powder white beach. Covered parking and beach chairs are provided by the resort. Our unit was very comfortable (we didn't do any... More

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.

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
