"Clothing Tolerated"
Fully clothing-optional resort complete with heated pool and an always-open hot tub. Property is small and private, only 18 rooms, and rooms are well-furnished. Pets welcome.


    • Have stayed here quite a few times. Staff for the most part is friendly as are the guests. Older crowd, so if you're looking for the young pretties this isn't the place for you. Low key and quiet with a decent play room. Cleanliness is up and down, and management changes often, but still my go to due to friendly people that stay there. Hard place to be if you don't have a car to get you to Wilton Manors unless you Uber. The monthly bear nights (BNSF) tend to always draw a huge crowd (2nd Saturday of every month). Also -- the best heated pool I have ever been in!

      Old and run down
      Guests were not very friendly. Lots of creepy people luring outside the gate. Beds were uncomfortable and old linens.

      12 Year Anniversary
      My partner and I came to Fort Lauderdale to celebrate our 12th year anniversary, during the Memorial Weekend. We stayed at The Windamar Beach Resort and had a great time. Our room was a nice size studio apartment with a full kitchen. I am on a very strict diet so having access to a kitchen with all accessories makes traveling easier on me. Our place was cleaned daily by very friendly staff, who made our stay very comfortable. We enjoyed talking with Julio, I enjoyed hearing about Fort Lauderdale gay history, he made us feel welcomed and at home. I would come back again to visit this hotel.

      Unprofessional business practices.
      We arrived after a day of driving to find out the room we reserved was not available due to a broken pipe, and they had re-booked us to The Cheston House (very nice) for the night and our room would be available the next day. The next day we called before moving back and were assured our room would be ready by noon. When we checked in at 1 Pm we were given a sub-standard room with a double bed, out dated bath, very old TV, and dirty carpeting, no refrigerator and out dated bath, when we had contracted for a room with a Queen sired bed, a sofa sleeper, kitchenette. Theyhoped we wouldn't notice, on complaining we were able to move ourselves to a different room which was quite nice, but, still not what we had contracted for, only 1 bed and no sofa sleeper. We were not offered a discounted rate, or any explanation of why we did not receive the room we contracted for. We did get the 1 night free that they picked up for us at the Cheston. When complaining they said they cannot guarantee rooms, sometimes they have to move people around. Try for rooms 6a, or 6B, or 8. Otherwise the place was pretty much what they describe it as, and we met some nice people there.

      nice retro resort but not the closets to the gay beach
      The coconut cove is the closets to the gay beach area.The Windamar has nice house keepers and the rooms are clean However frequent changes in office management with a put a shadow over this sunny place., Now they have bi-monthly hosting of unsafe sex orgies and poorly maintained landscaping and TV's, ice makers and air conditoners breaking down. Good luck getting assitance if it happens to you after the office closes. Compared to other guest houses available in the area this place has lost it's charm

      My Favorite Has it all! Relaxing, Clean, and Fun
      I have stayed here 5 years in a row. I have enjoyed every time. I like the fact that it is clean with a relaxed atmosphere great pool hot guys during the day on day passes. If you want to hang naked and chill you can. If you want hit action in the video room you can. Nice size fridge. My friends in the area always come over for a pool day. I prefer to do my own breakfast but sometimes grab cereal or fruit. My first year I came cause it was close to the beach-I never left the pool area! I can have lunch, cocktails w friends and get out of the sun to my room. Great location as I can get north or south to meet friends for dinner. My very small complaints 1. Too much chemical in hot tub 2. I buy dishes, table ware, glasses each time and they don't leave them for next guest.

      just ok
      We stayed here twice. The rooms were big, pool and video lounge are fun, the beach is in walking distance. the breakfest is poor, only pre-packed and you'll need à car to get almost everywhere (except the beach) I guess all the hotels in the guesthouse area are simular: motel style accommodation, too expensive for what you get and far from bars and shops. I would not mind to go back but the Windamar is not special at all.

      Great Hotel; Older Crowd
      My partner and I stayed at the hotel in January 2010. The hotel is very good and the staff is excellent and attentive. The crowd was not our type as we prefer more of racially mixed crowd and in our age group (20s to 30s).
