Tradewinds Beach Resort
Ranked #4 of 9 Hotels in Bradenton Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 February 2011

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!

We had never been to this part of the gulf before so we didn't know what to expect. The beaches and water are beautiful and the hotel was very neat and clean. These cottages are dog friendly and they are a perfect set up if you are traveling with your pooches. The Sarasota, Bradenton Beach, St. Armand's circle area are all very dog friendly with lots of restaurants to sit outside with your 4-legged friends. The pool overlooking the bay was very nice to sit and relax. I would definitely recommend Tradewinds for your next vacation.

Stayed there 2 nights with spouse, brother in law and uncle in law in 2-bedroom suite and father in law in a nearby 1-bedroom. Suites are nicely decorated, well laid out, with comfortable beds and nice furniture. Very nice veranda and view of bay from 2-bedroom. Most units face the parking area, which is really nicely landscaped and feels more like a lane than a lot. Was low-season though, might feel different full of cars. There are nice porches with ivy and the units are grouped in three's, with landscaped space in between. The pool area is spacious and nicely landscaped, on the bay with a pier for good fishing or viewing the bay. The water in the pool was perfect. Access to the gulf beach is just across the road and the beach is awesome - wide, long, beautiful. There are fair restaurants in walking distance and plenty of options within a short drive. The service was friendly, reasonable and helpful. A very comfortable, attractive place to stay.

Booked the 2 bed 2 bath (both en suite) unit (number 23) for three nights (plus fourth night free) and found the unit huge and spotlessly clean with all the facilities you could need for a short or long term stay. Spent lovely evenings with glass in hand on the enormous, private verandah overlooking the intracoastal waterway. Located right next to the pool, just in case you tired of the beach, the setting was perfect. No hesitation in recommending this location, indeed we are already planning next year's stay. Very good eateries within walking distance if required.

The best thing I can say about Tradewinds is that it is even better than the beautiful pictures on its website. Perfect location between the bay and the Gulf of Mexico, lovely island with no high rises and chains. Everything you need for a peaceful, romantic, wonderful vacation.

Anna Maria Island has 3 towns (Anna Maria, Bradenton Beach, and Holmes Beach). It is a perfect, idyllic setting with pristine water and clean, clean, clean beaches.

The villas are small, but do contain a separate bedroom and living area/kitchen. Just perfect

We were lucky enough to discover this place over Labor Day weekend!
The cottages are in the middle of the Bay and the Beach.
Our unit was close to the pool which we greatly enjoyed on one of Florida's hottest days.
Being Natives, we have visited every part of this state and I seem to be on an endless search for the place that meets all of our criteria. I think we found it!

Beach - just a few minutes walk to the world's best beach! - BLUE AND CALM!
Pool - right out the front door - HEATED AND NICE!
Fishing - Dock just past the pool - WE SAW DOLPHINS!!
Family - each cottage has a private BBQ/picnic area
Staff - NICE PEOPLE!!! They let us enjoy the facilities before we checked in :)
Convenience - Trolley stop at the resort to take you anywhere! Don't drive, just ride
Nearby - Restaurants, shopping, music - all 2 trolley stops away
Rooms - Everything you need! Nice rooms, comfy bed, Sofa bed is actually painless.
Peaceful & Relaxing - even on a holiday weekend. it was not crowded or noisy! with the exception of our 2 yr old thinking she owned the place (sorry) Very quiet !
Yes- we were the ones in the pool until 10 pm, swmming with the obnoxious 2.5 yr old singing ring a round the rosie...thats how we party!
Kid Friendly - Toddler was happy! Front desk has free movies! and books :)

This was a last minute- Girls getaway, so our group consisted of ages, 2, 21, 23, 43 and 52 - me, my daughters, my grandbrat and my best friend. (I needed a medical escape)

The girls slept in the oversized bed with the baby and me and my friend slept on the sofa bed. Our room was an end unit with the breakfast bar. I think some rooms are a little bigger than the others. (Ask if you have more than 2 people) Ours was perfect.

The only thing I would change is you cant get to the dock once the pool closes, If my husband goes next time, he likes to fish all night. Other than that - PERFECT
I must admit of all the places we have stayed- this one is the best!
