You can walk to the downtown area- 1 block. We really did not need our car. This place is SO clean and the staff ready to assure your needs. Pools are beautifully maintained. We did not want to leave and will be back !

This place is a jem in the Lauderdale-by-the-sea area. The place is very clean and they do a great job on upkeep and it has everything you could ask for. Two smaller pools but both have shade if you need it and are directly on the beach. They even have beach chairs available for FREE use on the beach! The suite room we stayed in was smaller than i expected but it had what we needed. I will definatly stay there again but next time I might opt for a one bedroom unit.

Room Tip: Only a few rooms have private balconies so ask when you book.

This was a fabulous option for the 6 people in our family. We rented the 2 bedroom 2 bath unit with an elevator! how cool is that?? This great little gem has been family owned for decades! Clean, clean, and more clean, great location right on the beach. Walking distance to bars, shopping, and restaurants. 2 bedrooms downstairs, bath, and deck outside. Upstairs is living room with queen futon, kitchen, and full bath. Just love this place! Cute welcome basket of goodies too!

Room Tip: Very clean, inside elevators,all rooms are good

Windjammer resort has everything one could ask for. It's directly on the beach with amazing views of the ocean, sand, and palm trees. The grounds are gorgeous and the two pools are sparkling clean and surrounded by very nice lounge chairs and umbrellas. The resort has plenty of chairs that guests can take to the beach. Each room is assigned a beach umbrella. The owner has put a great deal of thought into every detail. The location is another plus. It's walking distance to the exciting downtown area. Just 1.5 blocks. Lauderdale by the Sea is safe, fun, and beautiful. Also, not too pricey. It has something for everyone. The staff is the best! No fake smiles. They are helpful and pleasant. Our room was spotless and it had everything we needed. The welcome basket is great after a long day of travel. By the way, the other guests were super friendly. We had another amazing time at the Windjammer Resort. This place is first class!
