“Outstanding service, great amenities, views are amazing!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

I picked this place because of all the included amenities and I'm so glad we did. Out kids 6 and 8 had a blast on the slide! You can't beat having free cabanas everyday! The staff was very knowledgeable and super accommodating! We will be coming back for another vacation and next time we hope it's longer!

Hello TashAnn,
We're so glad your kiddos had a blast on the High Tide Water Slide! Agreed - the ability to automatically have a beach cabana each day definitely upgrades the beach experience. Thank you for sharing your family's experience with us. We'd love to see you all again (and for a longer time, too)!
Kind Regards,
Leni

We stayed at this resort in April 2014 for 4 days. Our view was of the parking lot and a dumpster. Not very eye-pleasing. We ate at a couple of the restaurants on property; decent but we preferred to go out. We ate at Silas' steak house across the street and that was probably the best part of our stay. The room was average, nothing really standing out for us. We will not be back.

As the Director of Guest Satisfaction please accept my apology for failing to meet your expectations. Based upon your description of the view, I'd have to say your reservation must have been for standard parlor with the Bay view but on a lower floor. An option would have been a room move or better yet an upgrade to the Gulf view if it was available. I always ask our guest to please identify their concerns while here so that we make take corrective actions and provide resolution. If we don't know about it, it becomes more difficult to correct. Thank you.

Many thanks for helping us to celebrate our 50 years together. Every one was cordial & helpful.
An especial thank you to Lou Ann, who was our waitress in Bermuda for Sunday morning breakfast. She was friendly, kind and helpful.

We loved our visit at TradeWinds Resort! We stayed for a week with our 4 children, the room was a bit small but very nice. We loved that we had a small kitchen to cook when we wanted to and also there were a variety of restaurants when we didn't. The beach was always clean, employees were very professional and friendly. Loved the amenities TradeWinds offered! The rooms were cleaned well, especially when Audrey cleaned our room-is was always immaculate! We will definitely return!

Very fun family vacation. Beach is beautiful. Pools are nice, but small for such a large resort and sometimes crowded. Kids activities were a blast with favorites being bungee jumping, ocean water park and high tide water slide.

Great vaca for family, although individual purchases (drinks, snacks,etc.) are pricey.

Other activities outside of resort that were worthwhile: Inshore fishing with Captain Kevin, Clearwater Marine Aquarium.

Just returning from one week at the TradeWinds Grand Island - here are my pro's and con's:
Pros: Staff was excellent and very accommodating.
Very nice beach with Cabanas and activities
Good variety of restaurants on site

Cons:
Felt it was a little outdated.
Room was not cleaned every day and one day not until 5:30 pm
Drinks were $10 ea which I felt was high because the alcohol content was minimal

The reviews I'd read ahead of time were pretty good so I was expecting a bit more.....unsure, but felt slightly disappointed.
