This was our third time staying here. And once again the place was fabulous. The room was clean and comfortable. We utilized the free bikes to ride to Fort Lauderdale beach, and we also used the complimentary beach chairs and umbrella while sunning on the beach.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 16 February 2017

Location is excellent - right on the beach, within walking distance of a variety of restaurants and bars. Two great outdoor pools. I stayed in a one bedroom which was immaculate. The staff are very attentive, kind and caring. This was my second stay at the Windjammer and many more will be planned in the future.

We have been coming to the Windjammer for years. It is a well-kept, clean, quiet, beautiful, small resort right on the beach. Staff is friendly and helpful, units are cleaned on a daily basis, grounds are beautiful, and it is within walking distance of many great restaurants and shops.

Just a hop, skip, and a jump away from all the action, the Windjammer Resort is our favorite place to stay on the beach. The location can't be beat.

“It doesn't matter which room as you are only steps to the beach, hopefully you didn't come to the beach to spend time inside the room. This trip we stayed in a one bedroom, other trips we stayed in an efficiency. Both types of rooms are comfortable.”
