We were here for a high school reunion. When we first arrived, cars were backed up. We knew they were fully booked for that Friday night because I had to make accomodation elsewhere. Sign says "lot is full, registered guests only." We were able to valet park for $5 fee, since we weren't staying that night. The guy (I'm not... More

There's a reason this resort is so popular. They have the best accomodations for the best price and the best variety of activities that you really don't have to leave the property if you don't want to. They have casual and more formal dining, Beef O'Brady's, putt-putt, several swimming pools, trampoline/bungee, great beach and waterslides, etc. Stay here - you... More

We have stayed at the Tradewinds several times over the past 10 years. It is right on the beach and a pleasure to stay at. There are several types of dining choices from beach fare to dress up restaurants. There are activities for the kids but also a pool section for adults only with a Tiki Bar. I would recommend...

Once you have checked in, and walk past the nice new refurbished reception area, the rest of the complex, dates back to the 80's. The only good thing about the complex is its location on the beach. The resort pools are "paddling pools" the rooms are small and dated. Please do not try sleeping on a sofa bed, worst ever... More

This hotel really has it all. As a person who lives in Florida, my girlfriends and I picked it as a weekend getaway. Hammocks on the beach, adults only pool, and a lazy river! The hotel itself is very pretty, and the trip was the most relaxing two days I have had in a while. The best part is that... More

My son chose the resort for his birthday weekend - which happen to also be Mother's Day. It was a perfect gift for both of us. The rooms were excellent, clean, and roomy. The employees gave extra attention to the mothers and the birthday boy!
