I stayed here as runaway weekend with friends, it was gorgeous. Fantastic views from the resturant terrace. The staff were accomodating, rooms where spacious and airy. I was most comfortable on the patio especially in the evenings and the clear skies.

Stayed here one day prior to cruise. This is a small boutique-type hotel,very Caribbean atmosphere, nice pool and good restaurant, wonderful view. Not on the beach and away from town. This is the place to go to if you want small and quiet and restful.

I like this hotel a lot. Very friendly service and a great view. The prices are absolutely reasonable and I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone even though it is a bit out of the way. The Bay House restaurant which is part of the hotel is great as well.

The Trade Winds hotel overlooking Dickinson Bay in Antigua was well worth the stay.A great alternative for all the very expensive resorts.Every room has an awesome view,the pool(a tad small) and restaurant and bar are overlooking the bay.The food was quite good and the service professional.I stay there anytime.

Most of the staff have been happily working here for years. Genuinely very friendly. The panoramic view from the restaurant is stunning. The beach at Dickinson Bay is a short walk away with excellent swimming, particularly at the flat calm end beneath the cliffs to the right.
