Since we live nearby, we took our two granddaughters ages 8 and 6 to Trade Winds for the weekend just to check it out. We had a blast! There are so many activities for children to do...from the big waterslide to paddleboats. There were a lot of people there, yet it didn't seem crowded. We feel it was a good... More

After reading the positive reviews, we were very excited to enjoy our stay. However, upon arrival (we did arrive early) we were placed in the older building which has not yet been renovated. The room was definitely not what you would expect from a hotel rated as four star, the furnishings were from the '80s and the carpet was dirty.... More

I was attending a business meeting, but this a great place not only for business but because there are so many activities for family members who might be traveling with you!

My family and I stayed at this resort and fully enjoyed every part of it. The beach is gorgeous and it is easy to get a complimentary cabana in the morning. There are many food choices on the premises and we would highly recommend the deli close to the lobby for very reasonably priced sandwiches. The rooms are spacious and... More

there were a few things that irked us. Beach was always dirty with cups, cigarette butts, etc and that could have come from Tradewinds policy of local walk-ins are welcome. Ahh the smoking and cigarette issue. Management seemed to have signs that stated smoking was only allowed in designated areas with proper disposal ashtreys. This policy was routinely ignored by...

This hotel was beautiful, safe and affordable. The staff was friendly, accomodating, and polite. We felt welcome and were allowed to either relax and do nothing or engage in a large variety of activities. We felt comfortable allowing our teenage daughter to explore the property and go where she pleased. The room was clean, comfortable, and everything worked. The room... More

We were very pleased with our stay. My daughter and I stayed in the Breckenridge building. The gym and adult pool is located in this building. Variety of restaurants with reasonable prices and staff friendliness was excellent. Only complaint was the adult pool was closed the first three days of our stay due to repairs. Definitely will return to this... More

Great place to stay. Have adult pools that don't have screaming, splashing kids if you don't want to be around that.

A beautiful resort that offers so much: multiple pools, restaurants, and activities. The location is excellent! We walked down the beach to go to the Grand Plaza Hotel that has the revolving restaurant.....one of my highlights of our trip. My husband treated me to a "sports massage" at the TradeWinds. The massage therapist did a superb job. I would definitely... More
