I decided to take my family for one night to this resort. I had heard it was a fun place for kids and they were all eager to go. Check in was at 4:00pm. We arrived after 5pm and ready to spend a fun-filled evening at this resort. Once we got checked in and "offered" a better room telling us... More

The air conditioner worked great. The beds were very comfortable. The pools are small and dated. The hotel has a lot to offer for families with the slide, water park, mini golf, etc. The location is great because it is in walking distance to many restaurants and bars. Take a cooler because drinks are overpriced. Put the "do not disturb"... More

On our first few days this resort was close to getting a five star but once you spend 10 days you do spot a few minuses. The main staff are friendly and polite and very helpful and there are a ok selection of restaurants at the site. There are a number of pools for the kids to play in and... More

Just returned yesterday from our vacation at Tradewinds. We stayed for one week in a two bedroom suite. I'll start with the good - the location on Saint Pete Beach is fantastic. The beach is pretty clean, the water is warm, and it wasn't too crowded. Tradewinds is also conveniently close to a lot of great restaurants - Mud Fish,... More

All the amenities you could want and courteous employees to help you a long the way. People like Dylan at the Front Desk, Ron in Valet, Mark, Kody, and Corey at Bellman, and last but not least, Sadet and Willie in Housekeeping. Definitely recommend for any type of vacation.

This is our second year in a row staying at the Trade-winds Island Grand. We stayed there for the first time last year to celebrate our anniversary. Since we had such an amazing time last year, we decided to do the same this year. We ended up going on the second week of July for 10 days. The resort couldn't... More

Arrived at 1:30am after a delayed flight to be greeted by a sarcastic 20-something desk clerk. Actually told him not to be smart with us. Specifically, when we questioned why we didn't have the specific bed arrangement we requested, he answered with a tone "well now you have an extra bed". Really? Overall impression is the complex is old and... More

Loved the location and amenities. Poolside movies, pirate show, huge beach slide and other beach toys for the kids. Great restaurants and bars for the adults. We were very fortunate with the weather it could not have been better. Also - walked a couple doors down the beach to Guy Harvey to try a new sea food restaurant, all I... More

This was our second year coming to the resort for our annual girls' trip. It was like coming home, when we arrived. We opted for a gulf view, 2 bedroom suite, which did not disappoint. The view was spectacular! We were in 2215, right off of the elevator. The resort was at full capacity, and we worried that the close... More

Tried to give a honest review of the negatives and positives. We had a great tip. My husband said he thinks it is our best family vacation yet. Read the reviews, half are negative, half are positive, all are right on. The place is old. The building needs to be knocked down and huge towers built in place of the... More
