My wife and I have been coming to the Lauderdale-by-the-Sea / Pompano Beach area for the past several years and this time found this great place. It is 1 block EAST of A1A and on the free Pelican Shuttle route. The room was bigger on the inside than I'd thought it would be with a living room and full kitchen...

Everything about this hotel was THE best we could have hoped for. We were visiting for a family wedding and the location was perfectly set a block back from the heavy traffic and on the beautiful beach. The owners and staff were extremely welcoming and went out of their way with a basket full of treats and a bottle of...

This special little gem will remind you of the way "things used to be" great Florida spot for families, swimming, diving and old fashioned fun.

We used the Windjammer recently for our wedding hotel. John and his staff went ABOVE and BEYOND in making our guests feel special. Everyone raved about the place, the service, the cleanliness, the beach. If you want a big chain with all the fancy schmancy stuff and no love, go elsewhere. If you want a truly exceptional experience in a...

Location, the Village is a great place to eat. Staff (Shenise) was very helpful. Daily maid service was nice. The ocean is steps away. Everything is close by. The Water Taxi to Hollywood Beach is a great way to spend a day.

This hotel has wonderful beach front access and sits in a quieter sections of the Ft Lauderdale area. Its not the place if you want to party, but it is walking distance to the pier, fun social settings and fine dining. While there was activity 24 hours a day a few blocks away, it was quiet and comfortable. I traveled...

My husband and I were gifted a timeshare here 5 yrs ago. Out of respect for our grandparents who gave it to us, we decided to stay at their original resort for the first year. What a pleasant surprise! Beautiful beach and view just steps from our room and a pool in the center of the resort. The restaurants are...
