Very disappointed. Way too many guests for the size of the property with no room in the pools, hot tub, water slide, etc. We had to move rooms after the first night due to a very foul, sewage smell in our room with the hotel or management never even offering a compensation or apology. Weather was very bad so the... More

On paper, this resort looks and sounds perfect for a family (grandparents and 2 families with kids) vacation. However, it does not live up to the descriptions! Having been to Amelia Island (Omni), The Atlantis in the Bahamas, Naples, Disney, and many other resorts, we have come to look for and expect a certain level of amenities and features. The... More

I am realistic enough to know that our terrible weather had a lot to do with our overall experience, however I doubt we'd return. To say it rained for the 3 days we were there is an understatement and I understand that Tradewinds has no control over that. With that being said....they need more activities for rainy days.

My kids love staying at this hotel because of the many kid-friendly activities. The high water slide and ocean play area are so much fun, and there are several pools to enjoy throughout the property. As a family, we enjoy the paddleboats, smores at night, on-site dining options like pizza, Beef O Brady's, upscale Italian, and even a deli in... More

There are a number of nice things with this hotel. Facilities for the kids when the weather good is adequate however we found communication regarding what the hotel had on offer poor and the food options basic. The hotel realise on its location instead of being a leading hotel...

I arrived on July 4th. I was immediately valet parked and went to check in. They did not have the room that I'd request so I got an upgrade to a room with a view of the Intracoastal Waterway! Sweet! Our room was clean and comfortable. The housekeeping staff was MAGNIFICENT! So very kind and thoughtful. I can't say enough... More

Tradewinds is a beautiful resort that is very child friendly with many fun and educational activities for children. The rooms were lovely and well maintained. There are three pools so everyone can find the pool and amenities just right for his or her taste. If you do not have children the activities were limited for adults especially if it's raining....

Stayed only for 1 night and it was pouring rain all day. The hotel provided umbrellas which was very good for walking around. I travelled with my husband and kids (7 and 9 ) The resort is OK overall but you have to pay 35$ resort fee. I found the pool very small and crowed. There's a lot of activites... More

Lovely resort with everything you could need to stay put and have a relaxing vacation! Mini-fridge, microwave, toaster, coffee pot in room with a nearby grocery store. Excellent food options on site. The staff has all been very pleasant and accommodating. Property is very well maintained and up to date. Beautiful beach location with nicely shaded cabanas. Stacked with daily... More
