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

This resort is so nice. Not the typical high rise. It has a great views and just steps away from the beach. The two pools are so well kept and offer such a relaxing atmosphere.

We just spent two weeks at the Windjammer and I must say it was difficult to leave. The location is awesome. Walking to dinner in the little town of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea is so convenient and having the beach out the back door is really nice. We are scuba divers, so it is especially convenient for us. Just so you know, the... More
