It was a great trip overall, the service was fantastic and so was the food. The live band was quite entertaining. The only problem I had would be the fact that light in the 2 bed suite was a little dull. And I think the front desk is a little to far from the lower rooms.😜💗💋😃

We have been regulars at the hotel for many years now and lamented the recent retirement of long-term friend and manager Cheryl Carter, although for other regulars we can report that Marydith Gordon has taken over the helm and is continuing to run the hotel to exacting standards. A top-class relaxing experience, her staff continue to excel.

We stayed here for one night on a stopover before flying to Beef Island the following morning. It was just what we were looking for - we were with 6 friends and just wanted the holiday to start! It was only a 15/20 minute taxi ride from the airport, the reception staff were very friendly and efficient, our rooms were... More

It is a proper price point too. On a beautiful island filled with brilliant resorts, Tradewinds makes an impression based on human compassion. The entire staff, and I mean the entire staff was extremely friendly and helpful. From reception to groundskeepers to reastaurant and bar staff, everyone was super-friendly and all services were more than satisfactory. Can't say enough good... More

Looking for a nice place to overnight on our way to another island, this property was recommended by a few people on the TripAdvisor forum as one of the few places on Antigua that would accommodate a single night stay.  Located atop a quiet hill on Northwest end of the island, this clean, well maintained  property sprawls down the side...

Although the beach is short 5min drive, the hotel has a shuttle that runs back and forth to the beach. The view from the hotel room and the restaurant is great overlooking the ocean.

This is a sweet hotel with lovely staff but the service is excruciatingly slow especially at breakfast. Most people staying here are business people so they want to be up and out fairly sharply. You need to allow at least an hour to be get through breakfast without extra coffee. It's also meant to be one of the best restaurants... More

This small hotel with a view of one of the most beautiful beaches in Antigua (the same as Sandals) is a little gem; quiet, immaculately clean, attentive and charming staff, an all-day restaurant with a modern (and rather American) menu set on a large, shaded decked area adjacent to the pool, where tiny, colourful birds will hop and try and...
