“Nice business travelers hotel”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Friendly and efficient staff - check in process was smooth and efficient - helpful security/bellmen. Great view of the bay. Food fresh and served quickly when under a time crunch. Sammys Taxi Service, recommended by the hotel, were on time, friendly and very knowledgeable about the country. Will definitely stay here again on my next trip.

Tradewinds Hotel (Conference Facility) was used to facilitate an important conference for which I was invited to participate (3rd Quarter Optimist International Caribbean District Conference). Before arriving in Antigua (first time visit), I took a virtual tour and was very pleased with what I saw. Upon my arrival to assist with bits and ends, I was completely blown away by the layout and the ambiance of the conference room and its surroundings. It was very spacious with the right amount of lighting and a view to die for. During my breaks, I can admire the sea and the pool area, get a glimpse of Sandals Grande in the distance through the windows. I would recommend Tradewinds based on my experience. Keep it up Tradewinds!!

Being on a hill we had excellent views over the sea, the downside being that the walk back up the hill from the beach was quite tiring.
The room was clean and comfortable but the bath was a problem in that the plug didn't work, or the shower and there was no hot water.
The staff were perfect, so friendly and kind and the meals we had there were of very good quality.
Would definitely go back because of the lovely relaxed atmosphere.

The rooms are very basic, and if you are lucky enough to get air conditioning that works in your room, it will probably make a loud banging sound!

If you want to order room service, you can order it by phone but then you have to go and collect it from the bar...

The actual staff are lovely.

If you are looking for an interesting night then I suggest you try the Island punch!

The walk to the beach is quite difficult! It's down a very steep, winding road that has no pavement so you have to watch out for cars. When you get to the beach there are a few nice bars, and the local people are truly lovely.

A very reasonably priced hotel giving a high standard of room and restaurant. Staff were helpful and prompt with there service. Reception was first class. The split level room was well laid out, spacious and well equipt. The best part of our stay was the restaurant............inventive and excellent food. We were going to eat away from the hotel but given the quality of the first nights meal, we stayed in at the hotel every night. The only downside of our stay were two American 'gentleman' who sat at the bar every day and evening telling anyone who would listen tales in colourful language with their volume turned up to MAXIMUM. They consumed vast quantities of alcohol every day and when we asked staff who they were we were told that they were PILOTS!!!!!

Room Tip: Room 51 would be a good choice.............junior suite I think.

This hotel is located away from anything else on a hill.
It is a strange mix.
The room I had had the bed and wardrobe on a platform up stairs and the bathroom andrest of the room downstairs - all a bit disjointed.
Room OK but bathroom a bit shabby
Staff on Sunday were ridiculous. It took an age to get served. So long ion fact that we saw one guest go out of the hotel and come back with their own drinks as it just took too long to get served.
breakfast is good and service seemed to pick up on weekdays.
Nice views from rooms. Not sure of price as client paid. if it is inexpensive then all fine but I wouldn't want to be paying much . . .
