“Nicely upgraded”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

I stayed at Tradewinds several years ago for a conference. When the opportunity came to go to the same conference last week, I stayed a few extra days! Great beach! The staff is friendly, the resort amenities (now included with the hotel price) are unbeatable, and there is easy access to great food in the area. Will stay here again! My only suggestion would be to have breakfast included in the resort fee, or add an all inclusive package.

I have been to Tradewinds numerous times and it is a great place stay, friendly staff. Terrific family atmosphere. Kudos to Elaine at Tiki Bar is top notch, always impeccable service, friendly. Highly recommend and will return.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

My room did not have a view, but it was very clean and newly remodeled. The bed was amazing! The hotel has great amenities on the beach. The food is okay. The tropical drinks were not that great. I was here for a conference and enjoyed my stay. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The exterior of the hotel is a bit dated and it rained one evening and to get anywhere, you have to go out into the open. The parking lot had 5 inches of water. The coffee was excellent and the food at the conference was pretty healthy and decently prepared.

Had a great four days. Staff was attentive. We thought the a/c was broken but Sule saved the day. He explained how it was a smart thermostat and how it works.
Food at the flying bridge was excel lent. Grouper sandwich better then Frenchys.Chef John at palm court did an excellent job on the veal and lamb chops.

Had problem with TV. television would not turn on. Tried all of the remotes and still would not come on. Called the front desk and within 5 minutes a maintenance man showed up at door. Fast service from Katchi Mara - everything working now.

We came to get the tour the sales people and working were very nice and explained everything you wanted to know.Also the restaurant Bermudas Randall was are server ,he is so friendly like he really take pride in his job and made you feel like your family ,so did the all the other workers there .We will be back to the restaurant. Has for the resort it needs some up dating and cleaning ,the room we saw on tour the corners of floors were dirty ,the shower room near pool was real dirty and piles dirty towels and around adult pool dirty cups and kids were in that area eat ice cream dripping all over and one kid was even in the pool doing back flips ,so that wasn't to relaxing we were checking for a get away from kids for the day .The beach was very nice till you see watermelon and garbage at the edge of the water .People need to clean up behind them self and staff to check ground a lot more.I would like to come back see more off season due it was to crowded.Also they should have exercise room open 24 hours .The staff are all wonderful but building needs help.Fyi we also had park across the street for the tour that s not a good first impression also the valet drivers the wrong way with peoples cars and almost hit us .

Room Tip: If you want just hand out with friends and see the sunset and eat at the Bermudas its a great place...

As the Director of Guest Satisfaction please accept my apology for the cleanliness conditions throughout the resort. I have forwarded this to all the appropriate department managers for further review with their staff and areas of responsibility. I would like to take this opportunity to let everyone know that the changing rooms by the pool are scheduled for a complete renovation later this Fall. At the same time we will also be making major changes to our restaurants which will allow us to provide a superior product and service. Thank you for your positive comments regarding the staff and if i could be of any further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact me directly. Thank you. drogers@twresort.com

We chose the property since there was so much for kids.. beach, pool, kids club, boats, mini golf, etc. Won't go back...... Service was not good. None of the workers smile- they look away from you so you don't ask questions, housekeeping was inconsistent, many amenities closed early, blow ups in ocean are down by noon every day (although not advertised that way). All in all, room was nice, property was nice but it was a miss for me since service wasnt good.

Room Tip: We chose a basic room and were very happy. Don't upgrade to a balcony- our room had an outdoor...

As the Director of Guest Satisfaction please accept my apology for failing to meet your expectations. All our guest comments are important and I have mentioned your concern of the friendliness of our staff in our operations and orientation meetings just this past week. This is a major and simple part of our philosophy, a simple greeting when passing a guest. Regarding the hours of operation of the Splash Island Water Park from 10am to 4pm, inclement weather plays a significant part in that as well as the safety for all our guest. I'm not exactly sure which dates you were here, but for three days the park was closed at 3pm due to weather. Then the following three days, it didn't open at all. I certainly understand your frustration as at this time of year most of our guest are here to enjoy the beach and activities for the children. Unfortunately, none of us have control of the weather. Thank you.
