Tradewinds Beach Resort
Ranked #4 of 9 Hotels in Bradenton Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 March 2014

This cottaqe-like resort was very nice because it was very homey. The resort has about 30 1 bedroom, kitchen/living room cottages arranged along a street with a heated pool at the end over lodking the Sound. Many of the people who rent these units have been coming back for years which points up the quality of the resort. We enjoy meeting these returnees which adds to the enjoyment of out stay, 2015 will be our 3rd vacation there and we plan to stay for 5 weeks. We cam highly recommend this resort.

Room Tip: higher unit numbers are closer to the pool

This was our second time staying on Anna Maria Island but our first time traveling to the island with our dog, Gracie. Tradewinds was wonderful place to stay. Gracie felt right at home.....and so did we. Our weather wasn't the greatest......never got to use the pool or even see a sunset, but our cottage (#8) was large enough that we weren't on top of each other during our week long stay. We had two televisions, one in the living room and another in the bedroom. A full kitchen, dining room, living room and king size bed in the bedroom. There were many nice restaurants to choose from...some within walking distance and many more just a short drive up the island. The beach is right across the street...the beach itself, is not a dog friendly beach, but Tradewinds is and we appreciate them accepting our "entire family". We would definitely stay here again when visiting Anna Maria.

This was our second time on Anna Maria Island. The Tradewinds Resort was a lovely surprise. Only steps from Unit 13 and crossing Gulf Drive is the beautiful Gulf sands and a private beach. Steps from that point is found small restaurants and gift shops. If that isn't your idea of your vacation, you can enjoy the pool on the bay side or pick up plenty of shells to add to your collection.
We enjoyed sitting on our porch and visiting with other porch lovers on each side of us.
Courtesy laundry is available and quick response to our sensitive smoke detector was appreciated.
We certainly hope that we will be able to return to Unit 13 in Tradewinds Resort next year.Carolyn and Chuck

Husband & I stayed here just prior to Christmas Day and mid-February 2014 and as usual, LOVED IT!!! Our units were extremely clean and well appointed. Totally comfortable, bright and airy. We've stayed at Tradewinds numerous times and have ALWAYS had a wonderful time. Management is most accommodating and gracious. We recommend Tradewinds to all who want a relaxed vacation at a great place.

Room Tip: Units on the South Side are a bit larger with a TV in the bedroom along with the living room and the...

Whenever I need to "opt-out," catch-up on back issues of magazines I love, or "tend my own garden," I retreat to the Tradewinds. Situated between the beach and the bay, I find no better place to read or contemplate. The North cottages are bathed in sunlight during the day, the evenings are quiet and often cooled with bay to beach breezes, and having morning coffee or an evening cocktail on the cottage's porch is heavenly. The staff is non-intrusive and the cottages are spotless.

Old Florida for sure. We stayed three days and enjoyed our little cottage. It had all amenities, was clean and comfortable. Liked the idea of parking right in front of the unit. Pets are welcome but signs make it clear you should walk off the property. We were surprised that there was very little beach access. One had to walk a couple blocks and cross the main street or drive to a few other locations. It was worth it when you got there though. The only concern we had was when people occupied the next door unit. We could hear them moving furniture, their TV and conversations. So I believe it could be noisy at peak times.
