“Totally enjoyed our stay at the Tradewinds!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014

The grounds are well kept up, the beach is just beautiful and we loved our cabana! The room was nice and clean. Loved having a fridge, microwave, dishes, silverware and even a little sink in the room. Aveda bath products are a favorite too! The staff was always very kind and friendly. There were lots of families here and everyone seemed to be having a great time and there are many things to do on the property including places to eat. My only complaint and it really was just a bit annoying, was that we had to wait in line to get towels and sometimes it was a bit chilly and I wish we could have just grabbed one instead of waiting for others to pay for things and such when all we needed was a towel. But otherwise, it was all just wonderful! I would definitely return.

Beach and pools are outstanding. On premise restaurants are good. Bed was comfortable. Rooms are showing their age but everything was very clean. Lots of activities for kids too (water slide, mini golf, beach, kids pool). Several different bars on property with well made drinks, bartenders had lots if personality.

I've been vacationing in Florida for many years , Trade Winds was the best. Beautiful landscape, loved the waterway and paddle boats. Easy access beach and all you need located onsite. Enjoyed the bars and many resturants from casual to high class , Trade winds has it all. We never left the resort. 5 star all the way. Tiki bar was awesome with live entertainment most of the time.

I was upgraded to the Cyprus Villa . This was a full 2 bed 2 bath , full kitchen with a patio with lounge chairs and 4 tables on it. It overlooked the pool. Located in the center of the resort. I can't comment on the value because I had a free upgrade for the room. I can say that the resort seemed fairly priced for its location on the beach. That said, it is pricey. Not a value. The resort is clean, good service, friendly help, decent food and good atmosphere. St Pete is a crowded beach with hotels and condos all along the beach. But, the sand and water is as beautiful as anywhere else on the Gulf. The resort is in walking distance to any restaurant and tourist shops. About 1 hour by trolley bus to downtown. Go to the Dali museum if you can. Well worth it.

I had a great experience given the excellent service that was provided to us by Ban. She was extremely accommodating, extra friendly and very responsive. All in all, this is a great hotel and resort with beautiful beachfront and exceptional hospitality. But Ban was a server that felt more than noteworthy.

The one thing that I would recommend related to this hotel is the amount of time that was consumed with room cleaning. I understand that it is important to be thorough, but believe that you can be detail oriented with faster processes.

My fiancee and I went to the Tradewinds to do an "elopement-type wedding" and from the moment we arrived we were greeted by Aaron at the front desk who gave us the best service and made our "wedding-honeymoon" THE BEST! A beautiful oceanfront suite, champagne, etc; we loved it. The gazebos, gorgeous grounds and beach at the Tradewinds made a beautiful location for our short ceremony and many awesome photos for just the 2 of us. We celebrated having dinner at the "Palm Court Restaurant" and Daniel, our fine waiter, treated us so special and added to our fond memories of our wedding day. It was just all so "magical" and very appreciated. Thank you for a wonderful memory: Aaron, Daniel and Lynn C. at the Tradewinds and to all of the other great staff, housekeeping and service from everyone. We enjoyed the outdoor entertainment, restaurants and pubs (something for everyone). We plan on going back every year and celebrate our anniversary. I would recommend the Tradewinds to everyone who wants the best of everything!
