Windjammer Resort

Reviewed 7 February 2007

We were very pleased with our stay at The Windjammer. It's a cute, laid back, and relaxing resort that is not that expensive. The property has two pools and even a grill by one of the pools. There was also a place for laundry. Behind the resort is the beach, but several yards down on the left, is like a dock. We had an oceanview suite on the second floor. It was pretty much a studio apt. with a decent size kitchen with a full sized refridgerator and dishwasher, large shower, and a fold up wall bed.

There was a bit of traffic outside of our room, with other guests and employees walking by. But privacy wasn't an issue, because they had mirror tinted windows. Our stay there was really quiet, we were the youngest adults there, everyone else was retired, most of the property was part of a timeshare.

The location was good. Short walk to the little center of street shops and restaurants and a block away from the main street. The staff were also friendly and easy to work with. I would love to go back again and would definitely recommend this to a friend.

These condos are the smallest we have ever rented.Aword of warning,get square footage of condo before committing to renting one of their condo's.And they sure do charge plenty for these cracker boxes.Very misleading pictures on the internet web site,of course you could rent a 2 bedroom with an elevator the size of a small closet for more.We will never return.

We went down on April 5th and originally booked at the Beachcomber in Pompano. Dont get me started at what an overpriced dump it is. Luckily after getting up at 6am and driving all over the place I found the Windjammer. They were the nicest most accomodating people I have ever dealt with. This is nice clean smaller hotel in Lauderdale by the Sea.I cant say enough of how well we were treated.and what a great location. You can walk to everything.THANKS WINDJAMMER FOR SAVING OUR TRIP!!!!!!!
