“Excellent Value and Quality Stay in Treasure Island!”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

My wife and I strayed here in November 2013. We stayed in a one bedroom and were impressed. We returned for 9 days in January 2014 and loved it. The second stay was a LARGE one bedroom condominium with walk out patio (Unit 105) adjacent to the swimming pool. The units all have full kitchens, complimentary access to on-sire laundry, large living rooms and big closet spaces. We really enjoyed easy access to the local restaurants by walking and there is a beach walking path and park only 2 minutes away. The units are clean and updated and they are very comfortable as it is a smaller resort. Parking is free and the management VERY friendly. There are docks out back if you have a boat or just want to watch the local gents fish from theirs. There is a patio area for lounging and grill for your use. What a great place!

Room Tip: Bayside rooms are bigger and with views of the Bay.

This resort was great! We enjoyed the condo so much. It was very clean. Everything was up to date and modern. The view was beautiful. Also we got a covered parking space, so that was awesome! The pool was nice to have as well! The location was awesome! Less than a 3 minute walk to the beach. It was also right next to a publix (which is lovely if you're a last minute shopper like me). It was close to everything and the beach here is beautiful and spacious. The staff were super helpful and friendly. I would live here if I could.

Room Tip: We stayed in the superior king villa. It was amazing.

The greatest asset here is the location and convenience to amenities. Just a ten minute walk to the Publix Supermarket and several places to eat and drink.

The apartment was spotless and very we'll equipped. My one complaint was the bed was AWFUL, just worn out mattress and groaning headboard! There was a full kitchen, with all you'd need to get by for the week.

The beach is across the street, although a busy road, there is a pedestrian crossing with a flasher you can activate to safely cross. Make sure you set aside plenty of time for walking on the beach, it's so relaxing!

Tampa International Airport is a very easy 40 minute drive and an easy airport from a passenger perspective. You can even walk out of the terminal to your rental car!

I adored Ricky T's for a great bar and food scene, beware of the very generous portions. VIP Mexican Restaurant is out of this world. Both places are ten minutes on foot, if that.

Shopping is plentiful, expect to spend a day out the Ellenton Outlet Mall, where you'll give the credit card some excercise...

If you have a rainy day, make contingency plans to visit The Dali Museum in St Petersburg. Even if you are, like me not a Dali fan. I must confess to being a convert after the half hour free tour! Fancy a bit of culture, you won't be disappointed. Parking is plentiful, but $5.00.

Back at the apartment, I enjoyed relaxing at the private three dock Barbour, regularly frequented by pelicans. There are two gas barbecues, if you don't mind cooking after the myriad of foods cooked on them. The pool is very nice, plenty of seating around the pool.

The on site laundry machines are spacious and modern GE units. So you can keep up with keeping your clothes clean.

One rant about staff at the apartments: I found the attitude of the staff very odd, in the sense that you never had maid services. If you want clean towels or bed linen, you're expected to bring it down to exchange them. Yet you pay an up front $50.00 cleaning charge, as well as being expecting to take out your own trash when you leave! Excuse me, but who's paid $1400 to stay for a week?

Would I come back to stay? Only if the beds have new mattresses!

Thank you for your kind review. All of your concerns will definately be considered. We do strive to have the cleanest condos on the beach and since these are "full sized condos" instead of small hotel/motel rooms which is the reason for an additional cleaning fee. Thank you once again and please come back in the future. JD

This trip was a girls retreat and birthday celebration. We had a 2 bedroom condo for 5 women and it was perfect. The amenities were great as were the staff. We loved the outdoor patio - very comfortable.

Great place! I can't say enough about the staff, very accommodating and kind. The condos are beautifully decorated and very spacious. There is plenty for all ages to do. The beach is a quick walk across the street. We will definitely be back. Thanks for a wonderful weekend.

First let me say, I would recommend this place to anyone. The people were so very nice and helpful. The condo itself is beautiful! The kitchen is full and pretty stocked, just make sure to bring spices, like salt and pepper. We stayed for a week and were very comfortable, we had 3 adults and 1 child. The beds aren't the most comfortable, but its not a big deal. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. I don't think I could say enough good things about this place. Being right across the street from the beach was perfect. We were there for a wedding in Tampa, and it wasn't to far at all. Even went to Disney for a day and the drive back wasn't bad. It was quiet, clean, spacious, and a great location. I even left my rings at the condo and they sent them to me in the mail no problem (thank you so much by the way!). If you are thinking of staying here, you should, you will not regret this.

The westwinds resort is excellent.
I chose the resort because it had good reviews even though I was a little bit off put by the photos.
The reviews we right and my impression on the photos was wrong.

We stayed initially for two nights on sat 23rd and 24th November. It is an excellent place to go on this weekend because there are live bands on the beach and a massive sand sculpture competition. It had a great party atmosphere and a very very impressive fireworks display.

The room was fab. It was actually a condo apartment which had a very good size bedroom with massive king sized bed and a walk in wardrobe. It also had a huge lounge which had two comfortable sofas (one of which was a bed sofa) and a dining table, good bathroom and great kitchen. The kitchen had a big American fridge with ice on tap, dishwasher, range cooker, wine fridge and all the pots and pans and utensils you need.
The view out of the rear 5m wide window was also fantastic.

At the rear of the resort there is a heated swimming pool set in a nice garden that is directly on the side of the inland waters. There are three boat moorings which are used for sitting on and fishing. Also there are two BBQs which you can use and plenty of nice seating and lay out loungers.

At the front of the resort is the gulf boulevard road. To get to the fantastic beach is a very short walk over the road. The hotel has beach chairs, umbrellas and children's beach toys which you can use.
There is a very good quality supermarket within a 5 min walk plus some nice bars.

We liked the place so much the we returned to the same hotel for the last two nights of our trip. This time they had upgrades us again to a room on the ground floor which was even better. This was a two bedroom suite which could sleep six very comfortably. There was a patios door directly accessing the garden and pool.

On the last day of our trip we rented a speed boat from Frenchies marina which is just down the road. This was great fun and a good price.

Finally the thing that made the hotel fantastic was the staff, especially Dy. She was extremely helpful in all respects including looking after our large bags in the gap between our visits, printing our boarding cards and also allowing us extra late check out to suit our evening flights. Thank you Dy and Westwinds.
