I love to travel and visit different places and I must say that this resort was wonderful. My husband and I stayed in room 15, a studio and it was very nice. I love that the resort is right on the beach and that chairs and umbrellas are supplied. We always had plenty of towels for the beach and room.... More

Great location, walking distance from restaurants and nightlife. Scuba diving and snorkeling directly from the property's beach. Nice rooms, great service and a beautiful pool and deck. This place is great and located right by everything; once you park your car, you won't need it again until you are ready to leave. The Windjammer is my place to stay when... More

The staff were very helpful, from the housecleaning to the office personnel accommodating us with temporary visitor parking when possible for friends and family who visited during our 7-day stay. We have visited the Windjammer in 2011, 2012 (even Hurricane Isaac didn't ruin it) and now Aug. 16-23, 2014. The improvements of Weber BBQ grills, and new pool chaise loungers... More

Great location close to the water's edge. The reefs are about 50 yards from the shore where the lobsters are waiting to be lassoed. Showers and hoses to rinse off your diving gear! Kitchen in rooms help alleviate dining expenses. Very short walk to the Pier where the bars and nightlife are located. Lauderdale by the Sea is a very... More

We were very disappointed with the size of the one bedroom unit at this resort. more the size of a studio. Luckily we did have some patio space out the bedroom door, where you could sit and read or possibly even eat a meal. The bathroom was the size of a closet with only a shower no bathtub, the sink...

This was my families fourth trip to the Windjammer Resort and we love it. We came in 07, 08, and 09 so this was our first time back in 5 years. And I love the changes that they made. Updating the elevator in the room, new gas grills, new chairs at the pool, new beach chairs and umbrellas, new Lofa... More

My wife & I are nomadic vacationers (private cruises, commercial cruises, & camping in our younger days). We rarely spend more than 2 days at one location, see the major sights & attractions & move on. In 40 years, I can count the time spent at one location for a week or more on one hand. This year we needed... More

We stayed 4 nights in studio 14 on the 2nd floor south side overlooking the pool. We found all staff to be friendly and responded quickly to any problems or needs. The room was extremely clean and daily servicing kept it that way. Our room had a queen size Murphy bed that was very comfortable and could be put away... More
