We spent our second consecutive Christmas/New Year's at Trade Winds this past holiday season. Both trips were for a week's stay. We find Trade Winds very charming and a more authentic Caribbean lodging than some of the newer properties on the island, however, some upgrades to the bathrooms and bed linens, etc. could go a long way. Having said that,... More

As our flight was cancelled we needed to find a place to stay for one night and we booked at the Trade Winds. 1) We booked it online at a special rate yet when we arrived they charged us the incorrect price. 2) Air conditioning control broken. 3) Restaurant service and food was terrible. We had to wait at dinner... More

We are two couples staying in 2 rooms at the Trade Winds in Antigua and it's been a disappointment. They don't do a good job cleaning to start with. Secondly they made a mistake in thinking we were only staying 1 night so when we got back from the beach the hotel had demagnetized our key cards as they wanted... More

We stayed here for only one day, prior to embarking on a cruise, but it was very lovely. Good food but pricey dining at their Bay House restaurant. Clean, small and a beautiful panoramic view of the sea. This is a lovely boutique property that is centrally located and close to the cruise docks and airport. No beach but they... More

No great hardship to be left here for 2.5 days by British Airways when their flight from San Juan to London developed a fault. Very pleasant and friendly staff, not at all fazed by arrival of a group at 0200. Good rooms with well maintained facilities; colourful flowery grounds, although not extensive. Bar and restaurant a little laid back but... More

Warm reception. Immediate help with the bags and well-equipped room greeted our arrival. Reception desk helpful throughout our stay and departure well managed. Only twenty minutes from the airport with tropical views and seascape.

Having sampled many of the islands restaurants and hotels Trade Winds always springs to mind first when I am asked for a recommendation. The restaurant is fantastic and stands out as one of the best for either breakfast or dinner, with a great combination of top service, food and an unforgettable view. I visited in both December and January and... More

We didn't stay at the Hotel but spent quite a few hours at the Bay House restaurant during our layover in Antigua on the way to the UK and again on the way back to St Martin. We had already done this before in the summer as our layovers are around 4-7 hours and the Bay House is just perfect,... More

I stayed at the Trade Winds Hotel twice between October and November last year. The first stay was about two weeks, and the next one was closer to a month. Staying at a hotel that long can get claustrophobic, but the staff at the hotel made me feel very much at home for my stay. From my first stay, most... More

Spent two nights here and overall it was ok. The rooms are a nice size and clean, there is plenty of water pressure and the view off of the balcony was beautiful. The property is not on the beach so you would need a car or be willing to walk a few miles to get to a public beach. The... More
