“Great Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

This is a very nice place, but I think calling it a resort is a little bit of a stretch. We stayed twice for two nights each time before and after our cruise. We had different rooms and both were spacious with full kitchens and one bedroom with a very comfortable bed. Also, in the living room was a futon type thing which was apparently very comfortable.

The "resort" has a nice little pool and it is right on a great beach. Apparently there is a really good reef just off the beach. We saw lots of scuba divers heading out there. I didn't see anything else "resort" like. There are a couple of good restaurants close by plus a pharmacy, grocery store (about a 3 min. drive but a little far to walk). Just about one block away is a gourmet burger place, Burgerfi. Best burgers and onion rings I've ever had. It's expensive but worth every penny.

We can't say enough good about Windjammer, the owner, John, and the staff. After arriving in LDBTS and finding that the hotel that we had initially booked was absolutely filthy and beyond what we could stand for a week, we spoke to the staff at Windjammer (Joseph is great!) and were amazed at how willing they were to help us. To make sure our experience in LDBTS left a lasting impression, John went above and beyond and put us in an absolutely wonderful room. We had everything we needed as far as accommodations, and the cleanliness of Windjammer was incredible (this coming from 2 clean freaks). The location of Windjammer is perfect, and it is in a great area. There are plenty of great restaurants within walking distance. We would highly recommend staying at Windjammer.

This place is a gem. Staff extremely friendly and helpful, location can't be beat, rooms fully equipped and clean. Steps to the ocean with chairs and umbrellas provided. Park your car and walk wherever you want to go. Excellent restaurants right down the street, shopping is also close enough to walk. All the people were friendly and the staff can't do enough for you. A wonderful find. We will be back.

Room Tip: All rooms have a view of the ocean.

We stayed at the Windjammer Resort 02/19 through 02/24/2012. Our room was very clean and the staff was super friendly and very knowledgeable and helpful. The other guests were also friendly. We stayed in room # 1 which has a king sized bed . There was also a trundle bed in the living room but we did not need this for sleeping. The king sized bed worked great for my husand and I and our 3-1/2 year old son who did not want to sleep alone. Every day our room was cleaned and we were brought fresh towels. Only a few steps and you are on the gorgeous beach. Beautiful sunrises. They also provide beach chairs and umbrellas and sand toys for the little ones. Walking distance to a variety of restaurants, stores and ice cream shops. Two pools which are heated. There is also a playground walking distance from the resort. It is across the street from the fire department which our son also thought was cool to see all the fire engines. Our room was very quiet and we never heard the guests in the room next door or upstairs. I highly recommend this place and look forward to another vacation there.

Room Tip: Room # 1 worked well for us. The only downfall was that the people next door sat on their patio are...

This place is a gem. We had been over booked at another place and called last minute. Thankfully they had space. I cannot say enough about how amazing this place is. It is clean, friendly, great location! Everything you can imagine is available! It really felt like home. The other guests made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. We will be back again and have told all our friends and family that they have to stay here!!!!!

This is a wonderful place to stay in Lauderdale by the Sea. It is very well maintained and the staff go out of their way to ensure you enjoy your visit. The room was exceptionally clean and stocked with everything you need. The pools are great and the Ocean is a few steps away. There is a nice BBQ to grill and beach towels / chairs are provided. Also, it is a very short walk to the town square and the fishing pier. There is always something going on down there. A lot of very good restaurants nearby as well. Overall, highly recommended... you cannot go wrong.

Just got back from a month stay...2 weeks alone with husband, then one with our kids and grandkids and then one with my sisters. Loved every minute of my stay. LOVED the new towels and beach towels!! LOVED the new and VERY quiet elevator in 207, and LOVED the new beach chairs and umbrellas!! Those umbrellas are wonderful because they allowed us to enjoy that gorgeous beach and ocean every minute of every day. The bed in unit 4 slept like a dream. We really look forward to seeing all the familiar faces every year...such wonderful people there....and we all have one thing in common...we love this place. Our rooms were clean and awesome as usual, and we really appreciated each or the ladies who cleaned our rooms....and loved that they sing while they do laundry!! You are much appreciated John and Alex and staff!! God Bless!! and hope to see you next December.
