Great little resort nestled directly on the beach. We stayed in a 1 bedroom. My kids slept on the pull outs (they said they were comfy) and the separate bedroom has its own door so we could easily slip out in the morning and not disturb the sleeping kids. Clean, nice to have a kitchen...although all we used was the...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 16 February 2017

Location is excellent - right on the beach, within walking distance of a variety of restaurants and bars. Two great outdoor pools. I stayed in a one bedroom which was immaculate. The staff are very attentive, kind and caring. This was my second stay at the Windjammer and many more will be planned in the future.

We recently moved North and needed a warm spring vacation, The Windjammer delivered and amazing experience! The resort is directly on the beach and offers two amazing pools. Room 308 is the BEST and should not be skipped. We walked and biked everywhere in LBTS and loved the town. We can't wait to return in July!

The Windjammer is located in the perfect spot! It is 1 block from all of the restaurants, shopping and nightlife you could want. It is also right on the beach, and has 2 wonderful pools. The staff is great and the units are clean and well stocked.

This was our first stay with Windjammer and no complaints. We were referred by our cousins, who have been repeat guests for years. Great location, friendly and helpful staff (Shenise is amazing), clean room, access to beach chairs, assigned parking much appreciated.

A beautiful oceanfront property with great walkability to the shopping/dining hub in Lauderdale by the Sea. The rooms are very comfortable and kept immaculately clean (shout out to Ebony, our housekeeping hostess). As a group of four 50-something women traveling together our priority was 2 bathrooms. The Windjammer offers a unique 2BR/2BA option that features accommodations in a two level...

The place was great, the staff was a also great. Not one complaint. Nice walking distance to shops and restaurants. There was free entertainment and the beach area was also very good. Off the main streets so it was easy and safe walking.
