We stayed at Tradewinds for 4 days at the start of May and for two of those days did not see another person including the owner who was away which was Ok with us but may be weird for others as it can feel a bit isolated at this end of the strip. Contrary to other reviews our cabana was... More

Great, quiet stretch of beach at the southern tip of the Placencia Peninsula. Far enough away from the bars and nightlife that can stretch to 4am, but an easy 5-8 min walk to those bars. Individual cabanas, all with a beach view but some are set back in between the front line on the beach. Hot water for showers, ceiling... More

If your looking for a great location this is a nice place. However, the sheets in our Cabana were stained and overall the place was not very clean. We stayed 3 nights and being on the beach was the best part. However, be prepared for loud crashing waves at night, can be peaceful, but also can mar your sleep. Lots... More

This is the epitomy of basic beach living. Our cabana was 10 feet away from the water and we fell asleep listening to the waves crash onto the shore, which was wonderful. These aren't luxury units -- in fact ours was a bit dirty -- but offer everything you need to just enjoy the scenery. The brightly colored cabana exteriors... More

My family and I stayed only two nights, but wished we had planned for longer. The cabins are right next to the water, exceptionally clean, and the evening breeze makes for an incredible nights sleep. After walking the beaches, and looking at other places we almost stayed, we couldn't have been happier about our decision. The best beaches are just... More

We booked four nights and seven dives through Tradewinds' US based agent. The package clearly described what was included in the package, and what wasn't. Or so we thought! When we arrived we discovered that the not insubstantial cost of all diving equipment hire would be additional. Which was quite frustrating! If they had told us, then it would have... More

We stayed at Tradewinds in May and enjoyed our cabana, it was just what we were looking for, quite, clean and right on the beach. No one was in the office when we arrived so we had to track someone down at the bar by the pier. There was a good wind storm one night and we were glad to... More

Spent 9 nights at Tradewinds in late April. Had a wonderful time. Room was clean with fresh linens each and every day. Good hot and cold water pressure. Small refrig that kept our rum and fruit juices cold. Weather was great and the swimming out front fantastic. Saw and photographed a lot of wonderful fish. Took one tour with DTour... More

I stayed here with my girlfriend for 3 nights in late April and had an awesome time. Our place was modest, but it was RIGHT on the beach with a hammock on the front porch, and it was beautiful. They changed the sheets and cleaned up a bit every day. The people posting complaints are forgetting what they paid for.... More

My husband and I stayed in the Blue Dolphin (an end cabanna right on the beach) for 6 days, ocean just 15 ft. from the porch. We enjoyed our stay. Quiet ( except for the ocean when the wind came up) and clean, towels changed every day and beds every other day, good beach, small fridge and coffe maker. I... More
