“Perfect family escape”
Reviewed 11 December 2013

Tradewinds was a magical experience for our family. I was there for conference and brought the family. There is so much to do, both on the beach and in nearby local venues. The kids were kept busy on the beach, in the pools, playing tennis, miniature golf and chess. The rooms were modern, spacious, very clean. All staff was so well-trained and friendly; everyone I met would say hello and ask how I was enjoying my stay. We had a couple of problems with the door handle and the in-room safe and staff arrived in minutes to fix the problems. I also accidentally tossed my shorts in with the towels in the bin on the beach and they were waiting for me at the tiki hut the next day. Above and beyond. We would go back in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a tropical suite for a great view of the Gulf and some more space, including a well-equip...

Had a great stay as usual! I have been here 6 or 7 times over the last 4 years and it is always a good experience. Dinner in the Palm Court was also a very positive experience too! The veal was delicious. The rooms are always cleaned well and they were done early.

We traveled to TradeWinds Island Grand Beach resort as a last minute splurge for the night for my birthday. It was beautiful and many things to do at the resort. From the start valet was nice and helpful, I was not aware there were four different towers and from where we parked there was quite a bit of a walk. We didn't mind but he stayed with us the entire time until we made it into our room! Room was nice side, nice features, pretty typical and upon check in we were upgraded to a beach view which over looked the adult pool. It was an amazing view and having the convenience to the adult pool was even better as there were many kids in all the other pools and hot tubs. There was much to do around the resort, there were paddle boats, a numerous amount of pools, a gigantic waterslide behind the resort on the beach (which was fun) and recreational activities to do on the beach such as jet-skis, jet pack, parasailing, some rafting float thing in the ocean, and some sort of an ocean playground of inflatable objects. We had lunch at Beef o Brady's which was great and had drinks at the bar literally all day. Dinner we went to a buffet (pricey) and not much of anything but ordinary. Breakfast buffet in the morning was great and upon checkout we even got offered a free night! Were so tempted to call out of work and enjoy the free night because there was so much we still wanted to do. For one night stays, its okay but planning more days would have been amazing as there truly is so much to do! Overall it was a great stay and wonderful location. There was one incident with one of the workers at the outside bar who ignored me on numerous occasion and just associated with everyone around until one of the guys next to me had to stop him to serve me. I felt little awkward but didn't want to let it ruin my trip because besides him, service was great.

We got married at TradeWinds on 10/19/13. From the planning stages, Julie from the wedding department took the time to get to know us to ensure we had the wedding of our dreams. She made recommendations of things she thought we would like/dislike. When it came time for the food tasting, the Chef came and sat with us at the table and took notes of likes/dislikes! Then when it came to the big "Weekend" it was PERFECT! We had 60 rooms booked with friends and family and EVERYONE raved about how perfect the rooms and views were! They were all very clean and newly remodeled. The wedding day went so smooth with the help of Julie and her staff. The rooms were set up exactly how we planned, the banquet staff was very friendly and the food was PERFECT! They kept to the time line planned in advance and did not rush us at all. Julie was there to check to ensure everything was going as planned and ensured we did not have any last minute requests and it was the wedding of our dreams; we owe it all to Julie. Most of the guests stayed until Monday and for the rest of the weekend the beach staff, the bar staff and restaurant staff went above and beyond to ensure everyone was having a great time! I would recommend TradeWinds to ANYONE!

Room Tip: Pay the extra for the ocean view, it is 100% worth it

We would like to recommend Kyle who is a valet. He was courteous, helpful, friendly and went out of his way to accommodate us. He is a first class valet! This was our 4th visit to The Trade Winds Grand and we have always had excellent service. However, we feel Kyle was one of the best valets we have had.

Room Tip: We prefer a higher floor because of the view.

We stayed here for a week in November as the guest of a Blue Green member so it is difficult to criticise when someone else paid. Our room overlooked the kitchen roof and extractor fan so wasn't the greatest although internally the room was fine, clean, well furnished with the customary queen beds. The hotel should consider rotating mattresses as ours both sunk to the inside edge, obviously a popular side of the bed! The amenities were good and it is a super location right on St Petes Beach. Stupid idea of paying extra $15 for a front row Cabana when you are the only person on the beach. This was symptomatic of the hotel where I thought everything was overpriced. Ideal for visiting the area and takining in St Petersburg, if I had been a paying guest I would have expected a lot more.
