Returned to the TradeWinds after being gone for years. Found it to be as welcoming and fabulous as it was years ago. So much to do. Great food, Great beach, great staff...so much fun in the sun. Lovely cabanas, five swimming pools, beautiful ocean view suites. So many awesome memories made. Celebrated my mom's 80th with three generations.

I booked this trip based purely on web searches for great family vacation resorts. The place looked ideal, and it was! The pictures on their website were very accurate (not always true with hotels) and I felt like I got just what I promised. Which was a lovely vacation. The beach is very nice, just enough waves for fun, but... More

This was my first time to St.Pete's and it was amazing! The resort was huge! A little maze like but it didn't take long to find your way around. The beach and cabanas were wonderful. The service was great. The restaurants on site were convenient and the whole place just had a very carefree vibe. I would definitely come back.

Although this resort has a great location right on the beach, the property itself is showing it's age. Very small swimming pool area. The "adults only" pool had more children than adults in it. The property is rather large and the beach is very nice. The cabana food/beverage service is great. We ate at 2 of the on-site restaurants which... More

Accompanied my husband to an industry group meeting. Big, complex facility with a terrific staff and the ability to cater to different groups simultaneously and keep everyone happy. We did go over to the Rumfish for one meal, and it was an excellent one, but there was no need to leave the place; very good food in all the restaurants... More

We spent a week at the Tradewinds during Easter 2015. We were a group of 6. A family of 4 (kids are 7 & 5) + my parents. The Tradewinds was a disappointing in many ways. We really wanted to enjoy the stay as it had cost a lot but there were too many things that bugged us: Bad points:... More

Mother's Day could not have been better. The various maps along the walkways came in handy since the resort is huge. I found the rooms to be clean and loved having a gulf view balcony. Pools were a little crowded. Beach was great and it was nice having the cabana. If I had small or even teenage children, this would... More

The resort itself has a lot to offer including multiple restaurants, shopping and activities. Room was very comfortable, clean and roomy (Gulfview w/2 Queen beds). We prefer the Don Cesar but the prices can be limiting and there was no availability the weekend we needed. TradeWinds Isl Grnd is right up the road from The Don so all the same... More

Much bigger resort than I thought. No need to leave resort, but great area to walk outside resort and eat at restaurants & shop. Audra & Hassan at the Palm Court were very friendly & accommodating; food very good. Many, many families, so if you want a quiet get away, this is not the place for you, but there is... More
