“Paradise in Earth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2011

My family and I had a spectacular time there.
We were able to enjoy the gorgeous beach, while staying at a simply amazing place.
We are so glad to have chosen Tradewinds Resort. They definitely delivered a 360 degree hospitality and comfort experience with a wonderful staff, and great accommodation.
There is no doubt we will definitely be back.
The whole experience made us leave already wanting to go back.
We came home wishing we could have made that place our home.
It definitely is a paradise in Earth.

What we liked: lots of flowers and gardens, very cozy, clean, nice pool next to the bay, short walk to beach, shops, restaurants, segway rentals, and beautiful shady bike path. Nice lounge chairs on the beach and fabulous sunsets on the gulf every night!

What we didn't like: fairly busy road to navigate every time we went to and came back from the beach, pull-out sofa in living room took up entire living room when pulled out, our friends in #11 got bed bug bites (verified by doctor) from the king bed. Hoping they did not bring home any in their suitcases! Also, we thought the price was a bit steep. If it were not for the bed bugs, we would recommend this hotel.

TOTALLY UNTRUE is our response to the claim of bed bugs at Tradewinds Resort. It appears the guest that supposedly got some sort of insect bite is not the person writing the review. An absolutely complete thorough inspection of both the units in question has been done and there are ABSOLUTELY NO BED BUGS AT TRADEWINDS RESORT. The guest absolutely did not get bed bug bites while with us.

I was very impressed with how clean and updated the units were. The hotel's website photos are accurate and do the place justice. The beach is across the road, but easy to get to. White sandy beach was beautiful. Not very crowded considering it was spring break. Appreciated the umbrellas, towels and boogey boards the hotel provided. Very functional kitchen and Publix grocery store about a mile away had everything we needed. Definitely glad we choose this place.

Location? Excellent. Cleanliness? Excellent Pool? Awesome. Cuteness/Quaintness factor? I kept thinking Wilford Brimley was going to show up to do a sequel to Cocoon at an updated Florida resort. Size? Perfect, just a small number of units, had our own porch to sit and read, watched dolphins off our own pier, and walked across the street to the gulf for swimming. Excellent food nearby. Had crepes on Bridge street for breakfast this morning, awesome. Will return.

We stayed here for 4 days and found the cottage type hotel very clean. The location was great. We found it strange that there was not a TV in the bedroom, but it was not a problem. They had alot of things to do but the whole time we were there it rained so we did not use. There was a grill and picnic table for every unit and chairs on the front porch. There was a nice pier and swimming pool but again, did not use. It would be a nice place for a family to stay. Staff was not unfriendly but not overly friendly. In all of our travels it was the first place we had a hard time finding someone to cash a traveler 's check.

Our stay at the Trade Winds Resort on Anna Maria Island has been delightful. Our view from our porch is delightful. The great blue heron that greated us on the nearby dock this morning was an unexpected treat. The near-by heated pool is warm and inviting. Our adventures at the Mote Aquarium, the St. Armands Center, and near-by Bean Point have added to the realxing days we have spent on Anna Maria Island. We loved the varieties of casual dining in the area and look forward to another visit to the Trade Winds Resort in the future. The staff has been very friendly and accomodating. We could have not found a better spot for the respite from the cold NYS winter!
