“Enoyed our stay!”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

We stayed in Orlando for a week before driving here to stay for one night on a Friday evening. I have two boys ages 9 and 10 and they really enjoyed it. They liked the big slide on the beach the best. We paid for them to go out on the bouncy stuff on the water for an hour and they liked it, but ended up playing with some other kids instead of finishing on slides. They rode the paddle boats once and paid to jump on the trampoline once. In October they only put out the toys on the weekends due to it being a slower time. We were there most of Friday and Saturday and it seemed to be just enough time, but maybe one more day would have been nice. We were going to add another nights stay, but they were sold out. When I checked in they said there were about 10 conferences and 8 weddings that weekend. It didn't seem to make the beach or pools crowded at all though. They watched a movie pool side on Friday night. We found starfish and crabs in the shallow water. Watch out for stingrays, you have to shuffle your feet in the sand so you don't step on them. I didn't see any up close, but my boys said they did. We had a garden view room with a balcony and so glad we got the room with a balcony. We were able to sit out there and relax and we still had a wonderful view of the ocean.

Room Tip: Garden view room with a balcony.

We went here for our anniversary. The room was nice, they kept it very clean. Included in the resort fee is a cabana every day, although you have to pay $15 extra for a front row cabana. I thought that was a little ridiculous. It wasn't crowded this time of year, so we still had a good view from the 2nd row. There are also paddle boats you can get and ride around the resort in a little creek. There are several on site restaurants too, which is nice when spending a day at the beach. We ate lunch at a few of them and they were good. We Never ate dinner at the resort. There's not much nightlife this time of year-- a couple bars open but that's it. We don't have kids, but there seemed to be a lot for kids to do too-- the water slide, mini golf, and a few other things. The only thing I would change is that I would have chosen a ocean view room with a balcony.
Overall I'd recommend staying here!

Beautiful resort with very friendly staff. The staff makes you feel right at home. There are many activities that are "fun in the sun". The resort is very child friendly. Fun for the whole family. Wish I hadn't been traveling alone so I could have shared this great experience with someone

Room Tip: The gulf view suites are awesome

We went on a cruise and decided to stop for a few days at the beach beforehand. The choice of Tradewinds couldn't have been better. It is directly on the beach with superb sunbeds. The hotel has great facilities catering for all age groups including an adult only pool for us grumpy old people. The children's party's looked great fun and the staff were really engaging.
We will return if we cruise from Cape Canaveral again.

My wife and I were very pleasantly surprised by the warm, friendly accommodations as well as the superior customer service we experienced during our stay at Trade Winds Resort this past October. Let me start by stating we were there primarily for a conference I needed to attend for work so the reservations were generated through the conference web site linking to Trade Winds site....very easy and quick to book the room on line. A few days before the conference I called to confirm my reservation and when speaking with the phone rep was immediately offered an upgrade to a large room with a better view for a very, let me repeat very low upgrade charge (for a week it was less than $75 total. That was so nice and the room exceeded our expectations. The rep also gave us some basic logistics and what activities and amenities we could expect once we arrived. The next pleasant experience was the quick and helpful check in. The front desk staff was very pleasant used our names and even offered many aspects of the resort we would want to visit during our stay. The bellman Albert was also helpful when we reached our room and fond the size to be so large it had to be a mistake.....NO! The upgrade was in fact just as ordered and we enjoyed a suite for the 6 days we were there with a view of the ocean and the resort courtyard as well. Wow, such a nice view and the sounds and smells were incredible. Albert also helps us with some local restaurant favorites as well as recommending the resorts must tries too. The seafood was fresh, well prepared and so delicious! The beaches were clean, well maintained and full of an assortment of activities for all ages.....as well as reasonably priced. Now for one point about the conference. The rooms were clean and prepped accordingly and the event staff run by Margarita superior in customer service, speed and exceeding the needs for conference promoters as well as the participants.....anyone want to book the resort for any conference or event is miles ahead at Trade Winds. So that is about it....to say we will be back is a given....hopefully God willing, yearly and with our family in tow too. Trade Winds Resort exceeded our expectations on comfort, affordability and customer service overall. Russ and Terri (Texas)

Room Tip: Tropical view gives both the ocean and courtyard views

We were at Tradewinds resort this past weekend with a large conference of about 900 attendees. The staff were very welcoming, helpful, and the hotel was beautiful. Specifically, Dave from activities, was absolutely amazing with the kids. He interacted very well with kids from all ages; engaging them, explaining to them, ensuring they had fun doing all the activities, at the same time keeping them safe.

Just an awesome place for families. Has everything to keep kids busy while having the luxuries you need and want from a hotel for the adults. Our stay was just fantastic and highly recommend a family get away here. Our trip ended at the gift shop where a woman named Gigi helped us. She was extremely nice and helpful and I am glad the hotel as staff like Gigi to make people come back to this great place.
