We stayed at the Wyndham Sea Gardens as a mini week exchange through our timeshare. We had a studio unit which was very small and very basic. We did not even have a balcony which made it difficult to get our beach towels and swimsuits dry for the next day, and having to find random spots inside our unit to hang them up. The kitchen part was well stocked with plates, pots, pans, etc, however we did not prepare our own food, as we go on vacay to dine out, but would have been great if we wanted to cook and eat in. We did use the blender to make some frozen drinks (which was nice to have). You will need a car if you are staying here, as we did not realize when booking. We did take a taxi to Ft. Lauderdale one night (Yellow Cab I believe) and it was $38 +tip one way. The concierge gave us coupons for food places nearby, we used both.... Seaside Grill in Pompano for brunch ($10 off- it was okay-poor), had dinner at the Chart House- Ft.Laud.($10 off- excellent) and then also had dinner at Houstons- Pompano (no coupon, but excellent). Overall the pool by the tiki bar was nice and large. We enjoyed the hot tub and being able to carry drinks around everywhere (take your travel mugs or a small cooler) There seemed to be plenty of lounge chairs and they did provide beach towels. The BBQ's by the pool were decent and made for a nice lunch at a very good price. Staff was friendly and helpful. We did also venture out to the Whyndham Palm Aire as my bf wanted to golf. I spent the day at the pool there, which the facilities were much nicer, of course newer. Activities seemed to be decent and more options for kids (including a nice waterslide). They had a resturant and snack area on site, which Sea Gardens did not have. Only downside to Palm Aire was the 6-7 mile drive to the beach.
