We are owners for 30 years. Wonderful vacation spot, close to restaurants and small stores, and feet from the beach. I did notice after my room was cleaned and floor wiped down my socks were very dirty. The water needs to be changed between the cleaning of each room and the outside of the door was dirty and I think... More

We booked an entire week in Aventura at an expensive condo on the beach. After one night in a dirty condo we left and stumbled on this little slice of heaven. The room is a mini condo, fully functioning kitchen absolutely spotless and adorable. We stayed here the rest of our vacation and loved every minute here. The maid and... More

When we arrived we were greeted with a smile and it took just a couple of minutes to check in and then we were shown to our room and everything the complex offered. 2 adults and a 16 year old girl were comfortable in the one bedroom room. The bed was extremely comfortable and my daughter said the pull-out couch... More

We return year after year to the Windjammer resort for a week of fun with or without our kids. A beautiful view, great people, and a villiage of entertainment and restaurants just minutes away always provide something exciting for us to do.

Just came back from a 5 night stay at the Windjammer Resort in Lauderdale by the Sea. I was there with my husband and two children ages 9 & 12. The location was perfect! Right on the beach and close to (2 min. walk) the "four corners" where they have shops, restaurants and ice cream. :) Friendly staff, great pools,... More

We decided to visit Lauderdale By The Sea for Spring break to meet up and stay with my parents, who have been going there for years. The Windjammer did not disappoint. When you walk into the town, you feel a bit like you've gone back in time. Upon check in we were shown to our 2 berm 2 bath unit,... More

The location alone is pure perfection, obviously. But not so obvious are a few other things this place excels in. First is the absolute obsessive maintenance and cleanliness of the rooms and grounds. The many skilled staff (not just house housekeepers but at least 3-5 grounds keepers) are attentive to every square inch of this place—spotless and beautiful! Second are... More

We've stayed here a few times and just love it. The employees are friendly and helpful throughout. The people and other guests become friends. Two pools gives enough space to avoid crowding. The rooms are super clean and the beach is on the sand. No one knows if you are a timeshare holder or a hotel guest. We have reservations... More

We spent four delightful days at this location, just steps away from the ocean and pier. Hotel staff were extremely helpful. One little hiccup was handled by the front desk & management in a thoughtful and efficient manner. We would recommend this place to anyone who would like to enjoy the ocean, while having the privacy of a private space.

We just returned from our 5 night stay at the windjammer. The accommodations were fine; however it was very clear that the "owners" of timesharers as I like to call them at windjammer are not very welcoming. My kids were not welcomed at the pool and you had to get up very early in the morning if you wanted to... More
