Overall, Windjammer is a great bargain right on the beach and so close to so many restaurants and bars. I didn't even need to rent a car and was easily able to walk everywhere. It was about a mile walk to the grocery store by Walgreens is just across the street. You can not beat LBTS as a solo traveler,...

Lauderdale by the sea was an excellent way to start our Christmas holiday season. The town is decked out so beautifully for Christmas time. The windjammer was very clean and great place to stay. The weather was amazing a rainbow came out on during our stay.

Perfect location ! On the beach and walking distance to local stores,restaurants and night life. The Windjammer Resort was the perfect retreat without the all glitz of the big hotel resorts. Layed back atmosphere . There are 2 pools at the resort.. Staff was always pleasant and helpful .

Love staying at Windjammer, right on the beach. They have everything you need for the beach including umbrellas, beach chairs and towels. Or if you prefer the pool, there are two to choose from. Super.

This place is wonderful! Friendly front desk staff, great customer service, a very clean property, modern amenities, two delightful pools, literally ON the beach, parking space included, excellent maid service-- all at a very affordable price. And just a short one block walk to all the fun stuff in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea.

Hmmm, sounds like you're hooked on Oceanfront relaxation at it's best! We are very pleased to have provided you with an excellent vacation experience and we thank you for sharing it so others. Next time you should take a walk to the beautiful plazas to the West up to the bridge and discover those great shops and restaurants.

We were lucky enough to get a second story room with a perfect view of the pool and the beach. This resort is convenient to shopping and restaurants. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return again.

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...

We thank you for the kind words and wanted to let you know that we do have 5 rooms that have a king bed, however none of them are Ocean Front because of the size of the bedrooms. They do have ocean view so the next time you may want to consider them just ask our front desk for availability...
