Our stay at the Windjammer couldn't have been more perfect. We were there to do our first salt water dive after getting certified last year. Our room was great with a full kitchen for convenient breakfasts so we could get out in the water early. Clean and perfect for 3 people. Lots of places to put our wet dive gear...

It was our 20th Anniversary and my husband and I were getting back into Scuba Diving and this Resort was recommended to us. We had a great little room with a view of the pier and ocean right from our bed! A full kitchen and sitting area. We could dive off the beach, and the snorkeling was great as well....

I have been coming to the Windjammer for 10 years and they always exceed expectations. The resort is always clean and the staff is always friendly. As soon as we walk in the office they greet by your name.

We were here in June 15. Nice and beautiful area. Weather was bad. It has a nice beach and water. The only issue was this short office manager lady that was so rude. There are few restaurants and shops. It is a cute place to get away.

We stayed here a few years ago and just now visited again and the place is still as nice and well kept as it was before. The management is very efficient and the rooms are very well appointed and well kept. This is a time-share resort but they also have some vacancies that they rent nightly. It is right on...

I was given a very special birthday gift from my sister. She gave me the most peaceful getaway. My sister arranged for me to spend a few days at this very nice Resort. I love the beach and I was only a few steps from the beautiful beach. The bedroom was large and the place was very very clean. Although...

Found this little gem on HotelTonight (app for iPhone & Android). To be honest, my biggest fear was that an ocean-front hotel, for the price I paid, would end up not looking anything like the photos when I arrived. However, I was pleasantly surprised when the front desk girl took me to my room and it looked the exact same!...

Free parking, easy check-in. Very clean and up to date room. Plenty of towels. Nice dark bedroom for sleeping late. Property well maintained. Beach chairs and umbrellas are available. And so close to all the fun right up the street-no car needed for dining, shopping, music, fishing and bars.
