Found this little gem on HotelTonight (app for iPhone & Android). To be honest, my biggest fear was that an ocean-front hotel, for the price I paid, would end up not looking anything like the photos when I arrived. However, I was pleasantly surprised when the front desk girl took me to my room and it looked the exact same!... More

Free parking, easy check-in. Very clean and up to date room. Plenty of towels. Nice dark bedroom for sleeping late. Property well maintained. Beach chairs and umbrellas are available. And so close to all the fun right up the street-no car needed for dining, shopping, music, fishing and bars.

Spent a week at this hotel. The room was clean but had a minor any issue in the kitchen area. The staff was very helpful and understanding. The grounds were well kept and clean. The pool and grill area was well kept. The free wifi was not working, but wasn't a big deal. The hotel is located within walking distance... More

We have been going to the Windjammer for the past 12 years. We love it! It is perfectly located directly on the beach, is exceptionally clean and the staff are so friendly and helpful. We do shore diving right in front as well as just relaxing on the beach- the water temp is warm enough for me but also refreshing... More

I LOVE the Windjammer Resort and I have been an owner for about 20 years. I NEVER get tired of the beautiful beach, cleanliness and courteous staff that make my vacation wonderful. I am not interested in trading my weeks at the Windjammer to travel elsewhere because the beaches I have visited in other places never compare to Lauderdale-By-The-Sea. It... More

The place is a bit old but the staff keep it up very well. Right on the beach and just a swim away from a few reefs for the skin divers or scuba divers. They clean the room daily; have several quiet places around the pool to just relax in. They have a loaner library; they even have beach chairs... More

Just back from the windjammer resort. We loved this perfect beach getaway. I'm 36 years old, and this trip reminded me of trips to Florida during my childhood. We stayed in room 202 as a exchange on a vacation club program without any expectations. The resort is small, but very clean and quiet. The staff was very polite and helpful.... More

The Windjammer is a special place that needs to be experienced to appreciate its charm. Located directly on the beach it is the perfect location to relax. Beach chairs, umbrellas, and beach towels are provided. The view of the beach is fantastic. We love this place!
