Palm Aire Resort and Spa is a mix of year round condos and timeshares within the Wyndham family of resorts. We used our 2BR Wyndham Kingsgate unit to exchange through RCI for this deluxe 2BR condo in Pompano Beach, Florida.We were very pleased with our accommodations and the resort's amenities. The unit was spacious, with a very large living room with an adjoining dining area and full sized kitchen. The master bedroom had a king size bed with an adjoining master bath with a jacuzzi bath tub, an enclosed shower stall and nice vanity top sink. Also in the master bath area was the "skinny mini" washer & dryer.On the other side of the living area was the second bedroom and another full bath. The BR had two queen size beds and plenty of space. The other bathroom was a standard shower over tub with a nice counter top sink with plenty of room for toiletries.The three main rooms in the unit had ceiling fans (a must in Florida in the summer) and televisions. In the living room, there was also a nice compact entertainment center including a stereo system and DVD player. The living room also had a sleeper sofa upping the capacity of this timeshare unit to eight. Given the amount of space, this unit would be very comfortable for eight adults.As for resort amenities, onsite activities include four swimming pools including a very nice pool for kids with a water slide, water volleyball and a shallow end for the little ones. Also free for use of resort guests is the 18 hole mini-golf course and a good sized sand filled volleyball pit.In our building there was a small snack bar type cafe and full sized walk-up bar. In the main building guests can be pampered with salon and spa services including manicures, massages and aroma therapy treatments.All in all, this is one of the best timeshare resorts we've experienced. The location is ideal, very centrally positioned in the oceanside community of Pompano Beach, approximately 15 minutes north of Ft. Lauderdale. Groceries are practically right next door, as is a large Super Walmart. The only unfortunate thing is that this resort is inland and about a 15 minute drive from the Atlantic Ocean beaches. Good news is that there are two other Wyndham timeshare resorts that are across the street from the beaches and guests at Palm Aire can go and use the amenities at their sister resorts.All and all, a great vacation experience at Wyndham Palm Aire Resort & Spa.
