This is our second, and not our last stay at The Windjammer. The location is perfect with plenty to do a few blocks away. The staff has always been extremely friendly and helpful. Pool is sparkling clean . We stayed in a one bedroom ocean front. It was fine for three of us. Just wish the bedroom had a king...

Windjammer is an awesome hotel, we stay in the studio units; perfect for two, with a very comfortable layout, full kitchen and so clean and well maintained. The best area of beach on the Atlantic side, for sure, clean and not at all crowded. Parking is also...

The one bedroom suite was perfect! Adorable little back patio, just steps to the beach and by the pool! The room was perfect, nice kitchen and decent space. Great location for a short 10 min walk down to the center of town with great restaurants and bars! Also a really good snorkel, diving and fishing spot right from the beach!...

A good friend of mine and I stayed here to celebrate our birthdays, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience! The room was very clean and had a great view of the beach.

We used our timeshare and stayed for three nights - the check in was efficient and welcoming, by Chenise (spelling?) our room was clean and comfortable, and the location could not be beat as it was within walking distance of all of the restaurants and shops. It is also directly on the beach, and although we didn't use the pool,...

This is a fabulous old place on the beach. location is fabulous and the area is also good. walk down stairs or staight out on to the beach. It is often like having you own beach as there are no high-rises and no noisy restaurants, except on Friday nights starting in November when two good restaurants block a whole street...

Thank you sir for your great review and mentioning that we sit "on the beach". Many people seem to have been the victims of false claims of hotels being on the beach because many people ask us to confirm that we are indeed on the beach. Then we simply ask them to look at our beach cam and their question...
