Just spent the weekend at this resort with my wife's and our family. Very big resort, kid friendly, clean and well kept property. The service was exceptional, very friendly and helpful when needed, well staffed. We had an ocean front suite, nice view, no balcony, not as big as I am accustomed to. Comfy. There was many restaurants, we seemed... More

We normally stay at the big pink hotel just up the road from this one. Finding that it seems to be getting more and more stuffy over the last couple years, we chose to go a more relaxed route this year. We are glad we chose the Island Grand. The room the booked was clean, pretty well updated and quiet.... More

We are a family of 4, with two kids aged 16 & 10. Overall we had a great experience here and would definitely return. The location is perfect, right on St Pete beach. There is tons to do on property, with many good food choices. All of the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. Our only 2 gripes were... More

There's just no place like this one. We have been here many times and it just keps getting better. Your kids will never be bored. If you need some adult time you have oppurtunity. The kids programs are wonderful and they will take great care of the kids so that you may enjoy adult time. Recent upgrades make the rooms... More

Horrible experience, Do not stay here! There are many better options in the area. We live local and decided to go down to the beach this past weekend. We do this fairly often and have never had a bad experience until now. Check in time is 4:00, we showed up and our room was not quite ready, which is not... More

We ( 2 adults and 2 children ) stayed in a 2 bedroom tropical view suite. The bedrooms and bathrooms were good but the "kitchen area" v disappointing. No chopping board, bread knife or kettle. They clearly don't want you doing much cooking- especially as the table only had 3 chairs for an apartment which allegedly slept 6. Mind you,... More

My boyfriend and I live in Orlando and love going to St. Pete Beach. Tradewinds is our go-to resort for weekend vacations. We've been 6 times in the past couple years. The grounds are awesome, and there's a lot to do. The rooms are simple and clean. There is an adult-only pool which is nice. We love all of the... More

Stayed here for 3 days in July. First of all I really enjoyed the hotel, its staff and St Pete Beach itself. We stayed in a tropical room and the views were not only of the boats and gardens but also a lovely gulf view. Having seen the standard view room I am really glad that I upgraded prior to... More
