So recommended and nice beach stay. Thanks to a very efficient and friendly staff. A lot of near places including rest and malls. The pier is incredible as well as the wainking in the beach, pelicans, turtle nets, a wonderful place to back and back again.

I love the Windjammer Resort. I am lucky enough to own a week timeshare in one of the finest units at the Resort. Unit 16 is oceanfront beauty at its finest. The staff is wonderful. The area is so well cared for and extremely secure. I would never hesitate to suggest this diamond of a resort to anyone.

Took a short vacation trip to Lauderdale by the Sea to do some scuba diving. The Windjammer is conveniently located right on the beach with easy access to spectacular reefs off shore, teaming with life. The room was spacious and comfortable with a small kitchen and lots of room to spread out. The staff is extremely helpful and accommodating...we even... More

Our stay at the Windjammer couldn't have been more perfect. We were there to do our first salt water dive after getting certified last year. Our room was great with a full kitchen for convenient breakfasts so we could get out in the water early. Clean and perfect for 3 people. Lots of places to put our wet dive gear... More

It was our 20th Anniversary and my husband and I were getting back into Scuba Diving and this Resort was recommended to us. We had a great little room with a view of the pier and ocean right from our bed! A full kitchen and sitting area. We could dive off the beach, and the snorkeling was great as well.... More

The staff was wonderful. They were extremely helpful and friendly. The w-ifi is spotty but the system is being upgraded. The entire... More

I have been coming to the Windjammer for 10 years and they always exceed expectations. The resort is always clean and the staff is always friendly. As soon as we walk in the office they greet by your name.

The Windjammer is the best resort. We enjoy all the remolding every year . The staff is very friendly and very helpful. We also like the location because', are close to a lot of restaurant and shops. Like Jan's candy the best.The wait is hard for the next year to be their again.

We were here in June 15. Nice and beautiful area. Weather was bad. It has a nice beach and water. The only issue was this short office manager lady that was so rude. There are few restaurants and shops. It is a cute place to get away.

We stayed here a few years ago and just now visited again and the place is still as nice and well kept as it was before. The management is very efficient and the rooms are very well appointed and well kept. This is a time-share resort but they also have some vacancies that they rent nightly. It is right on... More
