We stayed here for the first time this past week (April 19-26). The price was reasonable and it was a PERFECT choice! VERY clean, great location and ameneties. The rooms and grounds are very clean and well maintained, and the kitchens are well equipped. The rooms are also very up to date. Their website is accurate as to what you will experience - from the beach cam to the room photos. Beach chairs and umbrellas are provided (first come first served, although we never had an issue getting two chairs and an umbrella - so they obviously planned carefully) and they are of very high quality (Tommy Bahama brand). Just off shore is a live coral reef (about 300 feet out) that we saw many folks snorkeling and diving on throughout the week. The beach is gorgeous and clean. They thought of everything - from a cheese grater in the kitchen, to a pair of bikes you can borrow, and even a device allowing disabled folks access to the pool. This management team clearly cares about their guests' needs. The staff of the Windjammer is outstandingly helpful and friendly as well.
Just South of the Windjammer, (within easy walking distance) are several shops and nice restaurants (highly recommend Burgerfi with their craft beers and chili dogs). A few blocks to the North, you can get on the Water Taxi which will take you all the way to Hollywood and several stops in between. We spent a very enjoyable day doing that as the Water Taxi crew pointed out homes of the rich and famous along the way as well as yachts of the rich and famous.
I could go on and on, but the message here is that this vacation was worth every penny and I will not hesitate to stay at the Windjammer again. A real rarity - great value, outstanding customer service and a perfect location. Try them out - you won't regret it!
