“Great experience once again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2008

We just returned from another 2 week stay at this resort. Being return guests one can spot differences....in this case we found the resort to again be very well managed and in top notch condition. Excellent staff. Very nice guests. Units are not fancy but hey, you are at the beach and they are in a super location. Don't hesitate to stay or trade to this location....mostly repeat guests and a wonderful place.

Last year traded my St. Augustine timeshare week for one closer to family living in Port Charlotte. Until now the week was always spent in St. Augustine. Windward Passage was a wonderful alternative. Everyone enjoyed the time at this property.

It is well maintained with the pool, hot tub and grounds being tended to each and every morning long before guests would entertain the thought of using the amenities. Nice tennis court, playground for young children as well as a shuffleboard court for diversion. The beach is steps from the pool. Chaise lounges at the pool and beach were plentiful in number. More than enough to go around. Ample parking available.
Staff friendly and helpful.
We stayed in a beachfront unit with a beautiful view of the sea, Sanibal, and beach. Every morning we enjoyed coffee and Bloody Marys on the screened balcony while watching the seabirds and pelicans dive for breakfast. My only disappointment came from noise generated by jetski operators rented further down the beach. Talk about loss of serenity. IMO those things should be restricted for use only in lifesaving procedures.
Getting back to topic, the condos were nice sized 2 bedrooms with a sleeper sofa in the LR area. 2 bathrooms small but more than adequate. Nothing fancy but clean and taken care of. Elevator worked and wasn't one you had second thoughts to climb aboard.
Given the opportunity I would certainly stay at Windward Passage in the future.

  • Liked — cleanliness, location, staff, amenities
  • Disliked — nothing, absolutely no complaints from any of us.
  • Stayed September 2007, traveled with family
