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

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. 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...
