We had a very nice two bedroom unit facing the ocean. You could not ask for a prettier view of the ocean, or better sunsets. This resort was very clean, but the rooms could use some updating. The only downfall is the amenities. It has shuffleboard, tennis, bikes, volleyball, and movies. While these activities are listed as amenities, you can... More

While the facility is older, it is very well maintained. Not luxurious by any means, but practical and comfortable. Right on the Gulf of Mexico it also has a good view of the tip of Sanibel Island. Amenities include a pool, hot tub, Ping Pong, Beach Volleyball, Shuffleboard Courts, washers and dryers on property and even a tennis court. They... More

Since you have been visiting the resort for so many years, you have probably also enjoyed some of the owner sponsored activities. If not, please try them the next time you vacation with us.

We stayed there the third week of June. The condo was very clean, king size bed very comfortable and the full kitchen including dishwasher was very pleasing. Two flat screen TV's were great and the screened in balcony over looking the wide white beach gave us hours of enjoyment. This was a very quiet place and other vacationers were respectful... More

We were in unit 7 in the side bldg which is a 1 bedroom apartment with as they say a courtyard view. There is no courtyard, it's the parking lot but nice to have your car right in front of your door. It was myself & my 16 year old son & we loved it. Apartment was very clean but... More

Thank you for taking your time to review our resort. We wish all of our timeshare apartments were on the beach side of our property. We call the unit you stayed in a "villa" and the rooms are more spacious than those that face the beach. We juggle interior renovations with keeping costs low for our owners and guests and... More

My family and I stayed at the Windward the end of March 2016. The location is wonderful. We stayed in a one bedroom which faces the ocean. The screened patio and view is amazing. The Windward is a bit outdated. The furniture and furnishings need some updating. The laundry facilities on site are an added bonus. The grills they have... More

We have owned at Windward Passage from 1982. We always enjoy our stay there. The staff is very nice and helpful with any questions you may have. We have seen them make improvements over the years.

And, we're looking forward to seeing you in 2016! Thank you for the very nice review. Windward Passage is at the north end of the Ft. Myers Beach island.

The resort isn't new or fancy, but the waterfront location is fantastic. We were close to Bowditch Park and to the town square, both within easy walking distance on the beach. Speaking of the beach, it's amazing. Powdered sugar sand, shells, birds, and warm water! Having gas barbecues and a full kitchen made meals much less expensive. The screened balcony... More

What a great review! All of our mattresses were recently replaced with Sealy Posturepedic Plush from the Glennon Collection. VRI is our management company and Sealy is one of their preferred vendors. They do the research on vendors and we benefit. We were one of the first to install this new type of mattress. Our salt generated chlorine pool system... More

I'm not sure how this review pertaining to an August "timeshare exchange" ended up in my space. We are the owner of unit 302 (and only unit 302) for an October week (and only an October week) so there could not be a change even if I theoretically wanted to make a change.

If you have children and don't mind well used beds and furniture, this is your place! After five days of a seven day vacation we gave in and went home. The best I gain give this tired old "resort" is that it was half a block from the marina where I kept the boat. Oh, and it is beachfront.
