We stayed at the Island Grand the first week of April and had a great time. The weather was absolutely beautiful the whole week. Our room and bathroom were a little small, but functional for my husband and I and our two sons, 6 and 3. The kids loved the pools and the beach and all the extra fun things... More

We booked a standard room which included 2 double beds, a small fridge and microwave, tv and good bathroom facilities. The room was clean, typical of what you'd expect in a large modern resort in the US, but had no window so was very dark; the rooms with a sea view were much more expensive and for us, not worth...

OK - maybe I am a snub but this is the lousiest place I have stayed it. the place was bland and significantly crowded with lots of kids running around. it looks like the parents drop their teens and left town. If you are single - 17-25 this is a cool spot to be (volleyball, enough water activities and plenty... More

My family stayed at the Tradewinds during the NITOP Conference (National Institute for the Teaching of Psychology). We've attended the conference, but stayed elsewhere in the past (with family). I love my family, but we'll be staying at the hotel next time, too. The Tradewinds has an excellent family-friendly atmosphere, while at the same time allowing the adults to enjoy... More

Very overrated hotel resort. Took family with two 13 yr old boys. They were anxious about the slide and pools. Costs $30/day for slide or $4 each time you went down. Pools were very small. I had to call Security numerous times to remove kids from adult pool. Everything was extra for the kids, i,e, trampoline, slide, putt-putt golf, water... More

This was a last minute Spring Break trip. Less then two weeks before arrival I began my booking on the Trade Winds web site. Within 3 days of arrival I confirmed and changed it directly with the property. The web was showing no availability for one day during the week and when I contacted reservations they were able to give... More

We stayed at the Tradewinds March 15-22 2007 and loved it. We have a 3 year old an 13 month old, and this resort has everything to please them. We had "Seven Suite nights" package that included the resort fee and a 20% discount card on all restaurants. We had a standard on bedroom suite that was fairly small and... More

My family of four stayed in a 2-bedroom/2 bathroom gulf-front suite at Tradewinds Island Grand in March 2007. The gulf beach view from our balcony was spectacular. There was a large stretch of lovely white sand and beautiful sparkling blue water as far as the eye could see. It was a great place to watch the sunset. The resort has... More

Went for a family beach trip with our two kids (ages 9 and 3). Our first room was tiny-tiny with a small balcony so we paid for an upgrade to a suite which was nicer but not necessarily worth the extra $90 a night on an already hefty per night rate. As mentioned in previous posts, this resort does specialize... More
