I was in Ft. Lauderdale on a business trip and had an unexpected free day and wanted to check out the beach and possibly have some nude sun bathing time. I didn't feel like driving all the way to Haulover since the weather was overcast and opted instead for a day pass at Windamar.
The hotel is really only 2 blocks from and beach and it was great because I was able to leave my valuables in a locker and go to the beach for a bit.
The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating, answering all questions I had of the area. The facilities are nice and the landscaping is beautiful. The exterior could use a new coat of paint or a power washing. The pool/hot tub area is medium sized and well maintained, more comfortable lounge chairs would be nice. I met some very nice guests who kindly showed me their rooms since I had considered booking for a future trip. The rooms were nice, basic and clean.
The "cultural center" was in a basement area away from the pool area. It was what you would expect for a clothing optional mens resort.
All in all had a great time and it was a very relaxing day. I would consider staying there next time Im in town.
