4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I went with my husband and six year old daughter end of March. The resort was very nice, clean and catered to children. The Pirate Show was adorable and the kiddie center was great. The only complaint I would have was that everything was a bit over-priced for our taste but the Rum Runners were worth every penny. Plenty of... More

First, the place is big, but not terribly well laid out. There are 3 pools, two of which are underwhelmingly small. The largest and nicest of the 3 pools, and the only one in front of our building is adults only, which is completely absurd for a family resort. It was empty most of our stay. Most of the restaurants... More

TradeWinds is not fancy, but it is great for families! Easy access to the beach, nice beach chairs, and so many activities for the kids. We loved the nightly s'mores around a campfire at the neighboring Guy Harvey Outpost. While the food at the restaurants was standard, unhealthy, boring food, the service was great! Denise and Petra at Bermuda's took... More

First I want to say that we had a great vacation. The beach is gorgeous and the weather was beautiful. Tradewinds does a great job maintaining an older property and the staff was top notch. However a few complaints ... For the price you pay per night there shouldn't be so many additional costs ... $5 here and $10 there... More

AmyD428, thank you for the many positive comments regarding the TradeWinds Island Grand Resort. I'm thankful that you and many others were able to take advantage of the great weather and experience all the amenities we have to offer. During this particularly bust time of Spring Break and Easter, we have additional security staff monitoring the pools to make sure... More

My family spent three nights in a gulf view suite at Trade Winds in mid March, and loved every minute of it. My three boys (7, 10 and 12) minigolfed, played chess, rode the Hightide slide, rode the paddle boats, tried Bucky the shark, did the bungy trampoline (major wedgie), tried the blow up surfing, spent an hour on the...

The facility as a whole is a very average. They do have a few nice features especially if you have children from 8 to 14. The fitness center is a fail. Very crowded and not what you would want for a relaxing getaway. The beach is very large and there are plenty of chairs for the guests. The problem is... More

Please accept my apologies for the fitness center failing to meet your expectations. We monitor all our guest comments and reviews, which indicate that they are usually more than satisfied with our existing arrangement of equipment that is currently available. Overall, it is Spring Break and we are thankful to be running at sold out occupancy on many dates through... More

We read the reviews on Tripadvisor and are so glad that we selected Tradewinds Island Grand Beach Resort. Everyone at the resort goes out of their way to personalize their guests' experience. Tonight, my husband and I snuck away from the kids and had a great date night at the Flying Bridge... our servier Tami was amazing, so attentive and... More

I will start out by saying that the staff is super friendly and very accommodating. We are a family of 4 and we had 2 bedroom suite in the Jacaranda building. The room was roomy and clean. I had originally made my reservation for a room with a king bed and the second room to have 2 queens. We never... More

Novelists, Inc., one of my writing organizations has held their annual conference at the Trade Winds several times (including last year) and we're scheduled to return for the next four years. This is a truly awesome resort with beautifully landscaped grounds (including an artificial stream w/ swans), a beautiful beach, and several different restaurants with a variety of cuisines and...
