“Nice view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Nice view from our room on 6th floor, could see the intercoastal and a glimpse of the ocean. A short walk and across the street had the beach with a sister resort. This resort is small and was enjoyed by older guests as we were there in January. Staff friendly. We had studio and it was very nice with full kitchen, couch area, tub area in the vicinity of the bed area. Nice patio to enjoy the evening. Washer and Dryer down the hall.

I recently traveled to Pompano Beach in December, and stayed at the Wyndham Santa Barbara. The best choice I ever made! I stayed in a deluxe studio unit which suited my needs perfectly, very clean with a huge bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen, a comfortable living room area, and a nice balcony which overlooked the pool. I found this spot to be the best because I got both the morning and late afternoon sun. I was there by myself, and felt very comfortable, secure and safe. This hotel is small, and intimate with a relaxing, low-key atmosphere. The pool is awesome, feels sleek and smooth, and best of all warm. Perfect for us older types! If you feel like you need the ocean, it's just a short walk across the street to their sister hotel, the Royal Vista, where chairs, and umbrellas are available at reasonable rates, weekly or daily.
Most of all, the staff here are exceptional, kind, courteous, accommodating.... truly a wonderful asset to the Wyndham family! From the time you walk through the front door to the time you sadly have to check out, you're made to feel special, and welcomed. All of them are amazing, they remember your name, and greet you with big smiles and waves every time you pass through the lobby. They're friendly but yet professional at the same time. I felt like I was at home, and enjoyed my stay so much I'm returning in March!

Thank you to everyone for such a great week, especially Suzette and Norma....you're the best!

I love this hotel small & friendly without being intrusive. The one bed apartment we had was really spacious, exceptionally well equipped & spotlessly clean. Just a short walk to the beach but, for everything else you'll need a car.

We stayed for a week. The staff was very upbeat and helpful at every turn. The accommodations were clean and spacious. The kitchen was well equipped with pots and pans and very nice glassware, plates, cups and bowls. There were plenty of clean linen and cleaning supplies. It was like staying in a comfortable house surrounded by enthusiastic staff. The beach is across the street.

Room Tip: Ask for an eastern room above the 5th floor.

This time share hotel is quiet and the staff are very helpful. The USA Today newspaper is free at the front desk. Every day they have activities posted to participate in as this is really a time share hotel. I have never listened to their sales talk and never will it's easier to say no and collect the coupons and maps for the local attractions. The beach is across the street and is one of the best beaches to walk, beautiful . Take advantage of the Serenity cruise that is docked directly behind the hotel it is a 3 hour cruise on the intercostal water with food and BYOB. Very nice. If you don't listen to the sales pitch the cost is 47 dollars. Look in the coupon book they give you for a $3 coupon.The pool is great,warm and comfortable probably not good for the Olympic lap swimmers. I have enjoyed it in the evening . Only drawback to this hotel is the A/C has a governor on it and the unit does not get as cool as I would prefer. Each unit has a nice balcony ask for a south facing unit. I book this hotel on the web and have stayed here 5 times. Love the quietness !

Room Tip: South side gets the afternoon sun!

The staff at Wyndham Santa Barbara are outstanding. Everyone was friendly and helpful. They will make you feel welcome without the intrusiveness sometimes evident at timeshares. The evening concierge was great. She gave us honest advice that helped us find good places to eat. Our studio room was spacious for two people and included a fully equipped kitchen and balcony. Facing south, our room overlooked the pool, affording us a view of both the ocean and Intercoastal Waterway. Rooms on the north west side of the building overlook a charming corner park called Indian Mound Park (great place to read in the shade) and the Intercoastal Waterway. The resort itself was generally clean, but beginning to show some wear and tear. For example, the back of the pocket door to our bath room was scraped from repeated use and the caulk in one of our windowpanes had come loose, creating a buzzing sound during the night of a wind storm. (My spouse found the issue and fixed it.) We also had an issue with ants in our bath room and kitchen. The bed was too soft for our taste, but many people prefer a soft mattress. The on-site activities are minimal: small pool, excellent but small outdoor hot tub, limited-menu tiki bar, some organized activities, and direct access to a yacht cruise. However, the location is perfect for easy access to both Fort Lauderdale to the south and Deerfield Beach/West Palm Beach to the north. The beach, across the street, is just south of the public Pompano Beach and, as a result, a touch quieter. A short walk takes you north to the fishing pier and public beach.

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.
