We had such a good time at windward passage. The pool and hot tub was very clean and quiet. The free extras are nice too...pickle ball, tennis, basketball and even bikes to ride! The grills are kept clean which is so nice. There are also plenty of chairs to use on the beach.

The only good thing about this resort is that its on the beach. Was not happy with check-in, staff and the room was needing updates and a good cleaning. Make sure that your room is not directly over the pool. If it is, try to be on top floor.

First time being at this resort. We initially were a bit unhappy as we were moved from a two bedroom unit to a one bedroom but it all worked out in the end. Private beach and spa, heated pool (except there was a problem while we were here), can take the trolley into town so

We love going to Windward Passage Resort. It is located on the north end of Estero Island, which is a great location! It is walking distance to Bowditch Pointe and Town Center. Lots of good shops and restaurants at Town Center. Many other restaurants and shops further south

I’m sorry but my husband and I didn’t use the pool and couldn’t see it so I don’t know when it closes.

We did not stay in a 2 bedroom so I don't know if they are ocean view but I would definitely request an ocean view room before going, we were in a 1 bedroom and it was facing the parking lot.

Are pets allowed?
That would be a great question for the resort.

Is there parking for a boat?
I didn't notice spots for parking a boat. You might want to contact the resort to see if you can put the boat in one of the vehicle spots.

"First floor courtyard or one of the beach front units with elevator access."
"Courtyard is just fine. Your not living in your room....your on the BEACH!!"
"Make sure to get a 3 digit room to be on the ocean with a view."
"Ocean view rooms are smaller than courtyard."
"If you want a view make sure you choose only ocean front room."
