I stayed for two nights on my way home from being in Key West for Pride Fest and it was so nice and relaxing. I was able to walk to the beach as well as to some nice places to eat. There weren't many other people staying there at the time but everyone was really nice. The room was clean and I felt very welcome. It is located not to far from the bars and Wilton Manor, although I never made it out to any of the bars cause it was so nice to just relax by the pool and walk the beach in the evening. I can't wait to go back again.

Three of us traveled and shared two rooms. One (the junior suite) was great; the other (the executive suite) was terrible - no working TV, Internet or light switches. I lasted one night and just moved down the block to the Atlantic at triple the price, where everything works.

My friends in the junior suite are very happy after 4 more days.

Room Tip: Junior suite (#8 was awesome), not executive suite (#10 was horrible)

For under $100 per night you get a clean, nicely funished room with quality linens/bed. 24 hour pool/hot tub, one block to the beach, parking, porn, "day passers" to play with and friendly staff.

Now for the funky:
Padded sofas/loungers/cabanas smell like gym socks and stained; in desparte need of cleaning.
Playroom downstairs is a great idea but lacks everything to make it fun/sexy. Instead is boring and gross...
Many outdoor floors/walkways/steps are dirty and in disrepair.
Continental breakfast is a joke.
Pool towels are in short supply. If you happen to snatch one they're like sandpaper.
Lighting of property/foliage at night sucks! This is a shame because its a chaming property.
Front desk is constantly left unattended.

Based on price, location and fun locals; it's not bad. With some additional investment/updating and more staff it could be a total gem.

Robert and I spent 7 nights at the Windamar and it must be the most awesome, peaceful freindly little resort in all of Florida !!!
Management and staff are very attentive to customer demands and won't hesitate to please. Nice place to meet new freinds,
Looking forward to be back at the Windamar next year and for years to come. Why go elsewhere when you already found Paradise.......

Room Tip: ask for rooms downstairs near the pool

My spouse and I stayed there April 17th to the 19th. We had a great time. We met some awesome people there. The location was amazing!! The Beach was literally 20 steps from the exit. They provided beach chairs and a cooler for me to bring drinks to the beach. Alcohol is not allowed on the beach but hide it well and no one will even notice. We walked to the Galleria Mall which was a 20 min walk but with great weather, who cares! The staff were very nice and the rooms smelt like cleaner so ya know it was cleaned. Our room had a walk in closet. The pool isnt huge but perfect for the size of the resort. We are in our 20's and yes it was more an older crowd but we didnt care, we were the hottest and youngest boys there so we loved the attention. If your looking for something quite, clean and plan to NOT bring a car...this is the place.

Not the greatest place but a decent bargain. Guys at the pool were pretty gross. Pretty cruizy but mostly an older crowd. Rooms were just OK. Decent location though a block from the ocean. Staff was nice.
