We were here as a timeshare exchange. We had a "one bedroom sleeps 4." Picture the size of an Embassy Suites room with a small kitchen carved out of the middle. This was FINE for a couple. Bed was comfortable. Kitchen tiny but well equipped. Screened in balcony with a beautiful ocean view. The place was older but very CLEAN....

We stayed here for a week . We were in a one bedroom Beach Front Unit.The kitchen was a good size kitchen and smaller living room area. Plenty of room for two . If you're sleeping 4 I think it would get pretty cramped. The view from our balcony was absolutely beautiful BEWARE not all rooms are ocean front so...

Windward Passage Resort sits on the quiet north end of Estero Island. I have been visiting here the past twenty years. It's our home away from home. We spend five weeks and feels like home when all the people show up from all over the country that we have met over the years. It is located right on the beach...

If you are looking for a family friendly place that is clean, safe and has the best access to both the beach and a pool....then this is your place. There are not all the fancy thrills and frills of beach towels, wait staff, bell hops and food service. Kelli and her staff are amazing at making this place the best...

You have truly explained why a vacation at Windward Passage Resort is the best vacation spot on Ft. Myers Beach. We're glad that you also found Windward to be reasonably priced. And, you are so right about our on-site staff. We're fortunate to have such a dedicated and friendly team. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Please note: No beach towels unless you buy them!! Bring your own. First time we have ever ran into this in our 30 year of time share trading. Units are very small and sometimes you can end up in a unit off to the side where you can't even see the ocean!! Everyone hogs the pool chairsr and there aren't...

Windward Passage Resort has 8 two bedroom units and 44 one bedroom units. The property is in the shape of an "L" with 34 units that are directly on the beach and 18 units that are located along the parking lot. The 18 one bedroom units are larger than the beachfront units. Most of the time there are plenty of...

Our home property in Laguna Beach is a little gem located in the center of the village right on the main beach. When we arrived at Windward Passage we were so taken aback at the dilapidated appearance of the property we were regretting our choice to spend a week here. In fairness, the property is clean, it just looks neglected...

We are sorry that you did not find Windward up to your expectations. The one bedroom, one bath units are small and accommodate 4 people. The resort is directly on the beach and most units have a private beach-side screened in balcony. Several buildings were repainted this year and the main building is scheduled for new paint in 2017. We...

First time here. Only about a half mile from restaurants. Checkin: don't even think about being a couple of minutes late on Saturday. There is a lockbox, though. Were in the separate motel on second floor, so did not have ocean view. Had clean, one-bedroom unit. Sofa and chairs not too comfortable. Bed - ok if you bring a mattress...

Our beachfront resort features 18 apartments that are do not directly face the beach and 34 that do. The one bedroom apartments that do not face the beach are larger than those that do. We are a timeshare resort. It would be great to be open 24/7 but one of our goals is to keep our owners' maintenance fees low...

We had a very nice two bedroom unit facing the ocean. You could not ask for a prettier view of the ocean, or better sunsets. This resort was very clean, but the rooms could use some updating. The only downfall is the amenities. It has shuffleboard, tennis, bikes, volleyball, and movies. While these activities are listed as amenities, you can...
