We went for a family wedding and fell in love - with the Windjammer! The Windjammer was perfect in every way - the location, with the amenities, the staff, and the amenities were incredible.

Location, the Village is a great place to eat. Staff (Shenise) was very helpful. Daily maid service was nice. The ocean is steps away. Everything is close by. The Water Taxi to Hollywood Beach is a great way to spend a day.

This hotel has wonderful beach front access and sits in a quieter sections of the Ft Lauderdale area. Its not the place if you want to party, but it is walking distance to the pier, fun social settings and fine dining. While there was activity 24 hours a day a few blocks away, it was quiet and comfortable. I traveled...

My husband and I were gifted a timeshare here 5 yrs ago. Out of respect for our grandparents who gave it to us, we decided to stay at their original resort for the first year. What a pleasant surprise! Beautiful beach and view just steps from our room and a pool in the center of the resort. The restaurants are...

This time we stayed in a renovated room in the south building. Didn't know about them. Thought the other rooms were clean and perfect before, beautiful and clean. The bedding and towels are always good quality. Mattreses are good. The kitchen had everything needed. The south pool was nicely decorated with all kinds of plants and gardens. Beach chairs seem...

I would stay here again and again, this hotel is walking distance to the downtown area for food and bars. It was great not having to drive to the keys when its right here. Make sure to bring your mask and fins and enjoy.

You think you have seen it all after so many years living in South Florida. Until you get to stay at the Windjammer in Lauderdale by the Sea. The weekend was simply paradisiacal and we didn't want it to end. The resort is extremely cute, cozy, updated, quiet, with beautiful pools overlooking the ocean. We are both divers so we...

Thank you Frederic for the kind words. We are so happy that you were able to get to know our beach village and dive our reefs. It truly does feel like you took a trip to the islands instead of just driving from the West side of the County. Oceanfront relaxation is what we are about. Thank you for being...

The room was very clean and quaint, as if renting a bedroom away from home. I loved that we could wake up early, cook breakfast in the kitchen and enjoy the lovely ocean view from our front terrace. Walking distance from main ave. of restaurants, shops, live music and historic fishing pier. We will return.

We stayed in room 205/305 a two story with 2 bedrooms and a pull out for a week. There were 6 adults and there was plenty of room and privacy for all of us. The beach is awesome and very close to shops and restaurants. This was a great location for day trips to Miami and the Florida Keys. We...
