It was a pleasure stay. Location is great, next to the beach. Rooms are big even the standard one. We stayed for 3 days and linens were changed everyday. Resorts has 2-3 swimming pools very close to the beach. The only negative was a $25 resort fees that is charged everyday but you can use Cabana and a paddling boat... More

This is a large resort, right on the beach with soft, white sand and warm sea. Enough waves for fun, but not dangerous. There are three pools, so none get too crowded and one is for adults only. Rooms are in a number of building and this is where the price can vary considerably, with suites being most common and... More

Most wonderful and friendiest staff/personel of any hotel that I have ever experienced. They are always anxious to make your stay the best...always willing to help you no matter what the request may be. Stayed in one of their newly renovated suites and it is beautiful and very tastefully done...very comfortable.

My husband and I had an amazing time. Everything from the view from our room, the sunset, the restaurant and shops. We even enjoyed the comedy club, I can't remember when we laughed so hard. It was so nice, we brought our entire family over on Sunday to spend by the pool. We had a nice brunch and enjoyed the... More

My family recently stayed at this property for my sister's wedding, and I was so extremely happy to see how pet friendly this beautiful, immaculate, large property was! The staff was exceptionally friendly, and the dog friendly areas were exceptionally equipped to handle our furbabies' needs! Doggie room service, off leash, fenced in pet area, and doggie hammocks all make... More

Stayed at the Island Grand at the end August for a week. This is our second visit to Island Grand. I was there with my husband and 3 children (13, 10, 10). Our one bedroom suite was facing the main pool in the Ponciana building. It was very comfortable and clean . The restaurants on site offer a good range... More

I stayed at the Tradewinds Island Grand last week on St. Pete Beach. I can truly say that you can’t beat the location of this resort. The beach is amazing and the service on the beach was great. That is about the only thing about my experience at this resort that was good. Upon arriving I requested a King bedroom... More

Not a whole lot to say here. Generally pleased. No problems. PROS: -The beach is *well-maintained*, which of course is a big deal. -Room (upgraded to Gulf Front for additional $19/day ) had been newly renovated and was nice with a wonderful view. -Property seemed pretty darn clean. CONS: -$25/day Resort Fee (mandatory) -$25/day Resort Fee (mandatory) -$25/day Resort Fee... More

We took a long weekend trip to the Tradewinds and felt like we were on vacation for weeks! The staff was awesome and very welcoming. The spa was amazing! The food on site was very good and reasonable! We can't wait to go back!
