“Great location for Fort Lauderdale”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

We stayed at this resort for 5 days. It is a great location for visiting the Fort Lauderdale area, only about 10-15 minutes from the city. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. While there are not a lot of activities at this resort, that was not what we were looking for. Our room was large and comfortable but a little dated. The air conditioning was a bit noisy and there was a tape player connected to the (modern flat-screen) TV but no DVD. That said, everything was in excellent working condition, clean and well maintained. Parking is convenient and free.
We stayed in the one bedroom deluxe unit and were given a nice corner suite with two balconies. The jaccusi was big enough for two, there was a full kitchen and two full bathrooms, each with a walk-in shower. We would definitely come again.

My husband and I spent a week at the Wyndham Santa Barbara as a time share exchange. We weren't looking for a resort with a lot of activities, just a nice, condo in a good location, and that's what we got. The resort was very clean and well maintained and every staff member we spoke with was pleasant and helpful. We were on the 6th floor with a view of the intracoastal and the ocean. I have no complaints.

This was our second stay at this resort, and we will definitely go back again. Though it is a high rise, it has the feel of a smaller resort. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are nice, views are great - we had a corner unit on the 10th floor.

I was glad to see the addition of the fitness room, as last year I had to use the one across the street at Wyndham's Royal Vista.

The pool area is nice, though not large. We traveled at the end of November, so it wasn't busy season. It's a nice time to go if you are traveling without children.

There is a path across the street to get to the beach, which is not very crowded. Take your own chair, as it gets expensive to rent chairs at the beach. We usually buy some cheap sand chairs at the beginning of our trip, then leave them at a beach access when we fly home so someone else can enjoy them.

This was our first stay at the Santa Barbara. We had a 7th floor corner suite with balcony views of the Atlantic Ocean and the inland Waterway. The faciility was outstanding as was the staff. The swimming pool was much too warm to be refreshing was the only negative comment. While it was late November, the weather on the Atlantic side of Florida in the Fall proved to be much warmer than on the Gulf side where we usually stay. The Santa Barbara is centrally located on AIA and we had by automobile easy access to explore the area north and south of same.

Room Tip: The corner suites overlooking the Inner Coastal with two balconies are an excellent choice

We exchanged with RCI for a week here. Very nice spot - pleasant staff, clean & quiet. Not having been to Pompano Beach before, we found that it was very easy to get around & explore the area. But it wasn't easy to leave our 8th floor balcony with views of the ocean as well as the inland waterway!

Have stayed to Santa Barbara, 4 times and have been more impressed each time. I love the location, the staff are amazing and the facilities are 5+star all the way. Added a new fitness centre so for me that was the icing on the cake. I love it and would recommend it. I would suggest it is a mature resort, not many kids which we really enjoy as I go with my friends and they do child care so getting away and not being surrounded by kids is a plus. Across street from beach. IT HAS IT ALL!!

Room Tip: rooms are amazing, very spacious accommodations, balcony and everything you need. Full kitchen whic...

Just went for girls weekend w/ my friend. For $148/night ($330 for 2 nights all in) we got a huge 1 bedroom condo. Big living area, dining table, nice kitchen, 2 full baths, huge bedroom w/ couch and garden tub. All very nicely done and comfortable. Service at desk was very helpful at all times. (we were a bit high maintenance.) I was worried about distance from the beach, but was very pleased that you cross a street and walk down a short path and you are there. Literally a 3 minute walk. Also, if you go to the right on the beach, almost empty. I am coming back in the spring.

*Only downside... because this is a timeshare facility, they make you listen to a little 5 minute check in spiel about amenities at the local Wyndam hotels. They offer that you can get gifts like a free boat ride by listening to a full pitch but we declined and that was that.

Room Tip: there are choices of no view, intercoastal, beach and side. we had side and i didn't care. jus...
