Like most of the RECENT reviews on here, we have also been a frequent guest. Never failed to have a great time Usually left wandering if we should choose another guest house on our next visit. But we always went back. Had heard rumors of renovations, etc., and seen the new ad video, just figuring they cleaned up the pool... More

I had previously made over 4 trips prior to this visit to the Windamar Beach Resort. Been reading prior reviews on Trip Advisor which had made me anxious going back to the property because of condition of property and new rules. Called the manager Lou and discussed my concerns about returning. He addressed my concerns and told me of renovations... More

Top notch service and help whenever we needed it. Video room was great and steamy, very clean updated and fun. Come here with an open mind and you are... More

My husband and I have been staying at this resort for 3 years and have always had a great experience. The resort is under a new manager and the place has had many updates since last year. The manager and staff were wonderful. We will definitely be back. Gary and Michael Louisville,KY

Wonderful attentive staff. Nice mix of guys. The rooms are well appointed and clean. It is obvious that renovations have recently been done. It is clothing-optional, but I felt very comfortable sun bathing in briefs. The pool and hot tub are well maintained. The pool is off-limits to sexual activity, which makes a lot of sense to me. There is... More

Clean property in a mini secluded in land beach resort. My partner & I stayed here using a day pass since our flight home wasn't until 9pm tonight back to BWI/Washington DC.

We recently stayed at the Windamar, and had a great time! We met the owner who has some great stories, and shared his visions with us. The renovations that have been made are great! I for one was happy to see the management and staff of the resort enforcing the policy of unpaid guests. It seems the people near our... More
