We loved our little vacation. We flew from Detroit and arrived at hotel at 11:30 am. The check in person (Jim) was very very nice, we were able to check in early and Jim showed us to our room. The room was small but that didn't matter we were only in there to sleep which the bed was very comfortable......

Wonderful little gem on the beach and so close to restaurants that you can walk leave your car on the parking lot. Our girls loved the two pools, as well and we enjoyed the tastefully designed deck. I highly recommend the windjammer to anyone.

Although, this resort is not 5 star it is very nice. The room and grounds are very clean. One exception, the floor in our room needed to be cleaned better. Wear shoes or have dirty feet. The mattress in the pull out sofa was REALLY firm. There is really little privacy as people walk by your room and able to...

This is a 33 unit resort and beach club. The place is full of timeshare holder, and we felt like we were on display. We rented a one bedroom unit for one week.There was a gift basket in our room containing bottle of wine, snacks, cup holder and one envelope of coffee and brochures. Unit consisted of kitchen and TV...

We are owners for 30 years. Wonderful vacation spot, close to restaurants and small stores, and feet from the beach. I did notice after my room was cleaned and floor wiped down my socks were very dirty. The water needs to be changed between the cleaning of each room and the outside of the door was dirty and I think...

We booked an entire week in Aventura at an expensive condo on the beach. After one night in a dirty condo we left and stumbled on this little slice of heaven. The room is a mini condo, fully functioning kitchen absolutely spotless and adorable. We stayed here the rest of our vacation and loved every minute here. The maid and...

When we arrived we were greeted with a smile and it took just a couple of minutes to check in and then we were shown to our room and everything the complex offered. 2 adults and a 16 year old girl were comfortable in the one bedroom room. The bed was extremely comfortable and my daughter said the pull-out couch...

We return year after year to the Windjammer resort for a week of fun with or without our kids. A beautiful view, great people, and a villiage of entertainment and restaurants just minutes away always provide something exciting for us to do.

Just came back from a 5 night stay at the Windjammer Resort in Lauderdale by the Sea. I was there with my husband and two children ages 9 & 12. The location was perfect! Right on the beach and close to (2 min. walk) the "four corners" where they have shops, restaurants and ice cream. :) Friendly staff, great pools,...

We decided to visit Lauderdale By The Sea for Spring break to meet up and stay with my parents, who have been going there for years. The Windjammer did not disappoint. When you walk into the town, you feel a bit like you've gone back in time. Upon check in we were shown to our 2 berm 2 bath unit,...
