Just fabulous! Everyone is so nice and the accommodations were outstanding! They took good care of us. It's right on the water and the views are gorgeous. Two pools, with changing light colors. Great restaurants within easy walking distance. It just doesn't get any better! We've been at Windjammers for several years and wouldn't think of going any place else.

My husband and i rented the oceanfront studio as a one day getaway for our 19th wedding anniversary and my birthday. The room was ready before check-in. They offer 2 heated pools, a grilling area, free beach chairs to take on the beach and free use of brand new beach cruiser bicycles! Staff went above and beyond to make our...

we love the windjammer! We stayed in three different places in LBTS, both ocean front and not on El Mar over the past several years. While we enjoyed LBTS the two ocean front places we stayed were shabby (probably no upgrades while waiting for top price from a developer) and another on El Mar that was nice outside but pretty...

The living quarters were little smaller than I expected, however the location was excellent with shopping, and restaurants were within walking distance, along with the on-site beach. The welcome basket, free beach chairs, free beach towels, and the free bikes were a great added bonus. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area

Excellent beachfront location. Well maintained property, pools (2). No charge loaner beach chairs, full size gas grills, and bikes. More. All with kitchens or kitchenettes. One beachfront block from Lauderdale on the Sea's "ground zero" of restaurants and shops. Only 8 miles from downtown Ft. Lauderdale yet has the feel of more underpopulated areas further north. Timeshares so availability is...

I just returned yesterday from a perfect stay at Windjammer. This is my second visit to this hotel. My daughters and I stayed in room 10 which is a one bedroom. We checked in after hours and had no trouble finding the lock box which contained the key to our room. When we entered the room, we found a lovely...

We had stayed here several months prior which started out awful but ended on a much better note. With that being said, we love the location and since we will be coming to the area a few times a year we came back to the Windjammer with the sole purpose of staying in the oceanfront studio, so glad we did!...

“It doesn't matter which room as you are only steps to the beach, hopefully you didn't come to the beach to spend time inside the room. This trip we stayed in a one bedroom, other trips we stayed in an efficiency. Both types of rooms are comfortable.”
