After 9 excellent nights at a whirlwind pace in Orlando we came to Tradewinds for the 2nd time, the first being our honeymoon 17 years ago! Our aim was just to have a few days of relaxing on the beach and it was therefore very pleasing to see that the beach was as stunning as we remembered it. On arrival... More

Our stay was wonderful!!! I was at a week-long conference at the resort. My wife was taking selfies on the beach. The resort is in a great location to everything. The assess to the beach is unreal.

The service was amazing. Everyone was extremely polite and helpful. They do go the extra mile to make people happy. The room was beautiful with a wonderful view of beach. They allow you to bring your pets and have a little dog park. The meeting rooms were cold. I would recommend this resort for a high end vacation weekends.

This was our second time staying at the Tradewinds. It didn't live up to our memories of our last visit two years ago. It is now run by a timeshare management group unbeknown to us. After checking in, we were directed to a second desk to pick up our parking pass. We were tired and hungry after traveling, and now... More

Everything about the Tradewinds is amazing, from the beach to the food to the rooms. And each person on the staff is so friendly and helpful and seems devoted to making your stay the best experience you will ever have. This was my fourth trip there, and I can't wait to go back!

This was our first experience with TradeWinds and it was wonderful! The staff was truly amazing and accommodating to all our requests. Though this was a business trip for those of us involved, we were able to bring along our families. The many options were great! From water sports, to putt-putt, to the many pools and restaurants! It was awesome.... More

When you can't complain about any aspect of the resort, and can only sing their praises then you have found a resort that listens and cares which is a very rare finding in this overoaded resort world we live in. From the welcoming front desk, to all the staff encountered, to the pristine beach and very comfortable meeting rooms, there... More

Overall this hotel is over priced and is know where near 4 1/2 stars. The rooms are small as too are the beds, we had a double twin room which normally means two normal sized double beds but no they where more like two large singles. The bar staff at the sawtooth bar/grill were rude but of course wanted tips... More

I have been staying at the Tradewinds for many years and can't believe I haven't reviewed it yet! Or given it an updated review! This is one of the largest properties on SPB with amazing restaurants, great water sports for the family, great tiki bars and amazing wandering trails around the resort. Its a HUGE property with lush gardens, many... More
