I was really looking forward to a pleasant stay but this hotel is a mega resort which is really busy and they do not have the facilities to support the number of people staying there. The pools are tiny and so overcrowded it is hard to find a spot for yourself. You are unable to relax by the pool as... More

We took our 3 and 7 year olds to the resort for one last beach vacation prior to school starting. TradeWinds was great and very kid friendly. Unfortunately, the 3 year old is too young for the kids club, but my 7 year old daughter loved the bungee trampolines and the waterpark in the Gulf. The activities during the day... More

We loved the beach, the cabanas, the nice blue beach towels and the best was the water park and all the water sports for children and adults. Looking forward to going back. One word of advice if you decide to buy the value package you may not be able to use all your vouchers because everything is based on the... More

I will start by saying the beach is beautiful! The cabanas are comfortable. You get one free one with your room unless you want the front row then there is a charge. We got two cabanas front row each day and it was great! Upon arrival we were warned about sting rays in the ocean. Apparently someone had been stung... More

I stayed last week & was disappointed. Other than swimming, we didn't have much to do. Kids wanted more, especially when it rained. Activities were a bit pricey. A shark tooth necklace was $7 (included 12 beads, string & tooth). The shopping area was 20 minutes away & a $30 cab ride each way. We were 7,it was $120 plus... More

Great stay at the Tradewinds and a wonderful location. There was also excellent service provided by Besim Sylisufad. Our room needed maintenance and Besim was very attentive and provided us with complimentary drink tickets after he took care of us.

I've lived in the area for two years now and have stayed at the TW three times. The hotel is really nice, large and I'd give it 4 stars on the quality and comfort side. I've stayed twice in the ocean front balcony rooms, once on my honeymoon:) It's beautiful. The view is amazing, beds are comfortable and we had... More

This is a beautiful spot on St Petersburg Beach. The service is friendly right from the moment you enter the parking lot. The place is huge, especially when combined with the Guy Harvey resort next door. There is a dizzying array of dining options, swimming pools, and hotel rooms. Even the smallest room is comfortable, attractively furnished, and convenient. There's... More

I stayed at this hotel last year and truly loved it. We came back this year and I found it to be a little different. The room cleaning staff was late every day with making up the room. I would leave my room by 8am and return by 4pm and my room was still not made up. When I called... More
