We went for a bachelorette party after the first hour we were there our stuff was stolen from the beach something that had been happening for 2 days and no one warned us. Parking terrible, 2 bedroom suite was small and beds small also. This is more a family place as bars closed at 11:00. Very disappointing stay.

My family and I had a pleasant stay at the TradeWinds(Breckenridge). We had three rooms(6632, 6630, & 6612) Our stay lasted a week and we did not want to leave. We had a wonderful stay at the Tradewinds. Our rooms were clean and located on the 6th floor(facing the parking lot). TheTradewinds was a great choice. It is centrally located... More

I came here because this was a meeting venue. It is really a place that is really catering to the younger family crowd. Good value for the money if you want a reasonably affordable place to hang with lots of other families. Very much built and run for this purpose. Would consider bringing our family. But don't come expecting 4... More

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

As the Director of Guest Satisfaction please accept my apologies for failing to meet your expectations. I appreciate your responding to my request for further information.
