My wife and I stayed here 1 night July 19th. We are in our early 30's and have travelled alot. The good: views from pool area, air conditioning is cold, bed is comfortable & front desk is helpful. The not so good: many ants in bathroom sink area, steep long walk to beach and many things cosmetically need updating. We... More

I did a review on this hotel some time ago. I feel it necessary to do another as it has gone somewhat downhill since my last one. The location of this hotel is isolated. However they do provide a limited free shuttle to the beach, although I am not a beach fan. The "main town" is about 15 mins in... More

This is a good hotel to stay at and it feels different from other hotels that I've been to. I say this because the check in area has this rustic appeal from the tiles to the opened reception area. Check in was easy and smooth. Then the difference continues with the layout of the hotel. The reception area is at... More

Friendly and efficient staff - check in process was smooth and efficient - helpful security/bellmen. Great view of the bay. Food fresh and served quickly when under a time crunch. Sammys Taxi Service, recommended by the hotel, were on time, friendly and very knowledgeable about the country. Will definitely stay here again on my next trip.

Tradewinds Hotel (Conference Facility) was used to facilitate an important conference for which I was invited to participate (3rd Quarter Optimist International Caribbean District Conference). Before arriving in Antigua (first time visit), I took a virtual tour and was very pleased with what I saw. Upon my arrival to assist with bits and ends, I was completely blown away by... More

Being on a hill we had excellent views over the sea, the downside being that the walk back up the hill from the beach was quite tiring. The room was clean and comfortable but the bath was a problem in that the plug didn't work, or the shower and there was no hot water. The staff were perfect, so friendly... More

The rooms are very basic, and if you are lucky enough to get air conditioning that works in your room, it will probably make a loud banging sound! If you want to order room service, you can order it by phone but then you have to go and collect it from the bar... The actual staff are lovely. If you... More
