I've bee to The Winds several times and it is very consistent. The winds is a clean no frills nice hotel. They have a nice breakfast buffet that is included and the pool side tiki bar serves normal pub style food. The location is excellent, right on the beach. Not all rooms are ocean view or ocean front so be... More

If you are looking for a 5 star $400 a night resort The Winds is not for you. If you want clean, comfortable, safe, and affordable it is perfect. It is in an amazing location right on the beach. The resort is pretty big and spread out. It was a little confusing to navigate at first but we figured it... More

Dear chhauser, Thank you for staying with us, and thank you for providing your feedback. We are extremely appreciative of all the compliments you have given us. Navigating The Winds’ many pathways can indeed be challenging. (There’s a reason we hand out maps! ) I am glad you found your way around and, better still, have found your new favorite... More

We come every year because we love this beach spot. The staff are wonderful and I loved the garden space And tiki bar. Some of the rooms are very nice and it's clear they have been refurbished. Some of the rooms are out-dated and the appliances are old. There are window units in the room we stayed in. Because of... More

Dear Kristen J, Thank you for returning to us, year after year, and thank you for providing us with your comments. From what you wrote, it sounds as if the seal around your air conditioner unit was loose. It should be a barrier and not offer access to flying insects. Maintenance do regular checks of the air conditioners, but I... More

What a terrific place to be! The hospitality was wonderful! From the moment we walked in the lobby the customer service was amazing. Both the front desk clerks were very friendly and willing to assist our request throughout our stay. We checked in our room and found it to be very clean and inviting.

My husband and I were married at The Winds Beach Club on 5/15/15 on the beach. Mel, Darlene and the staff were wonderful to work with.

Wife and I were staying with family about 500 yards away in a private house and went for an evening stroll up the beach and wound up happening upon the outdoor bar by the pool.

We enjoyed a four-day stay in an ocean-front suite. It's clear they try hard, and there's a decent set of amenities--all of them small. Just not up-to-par as a true resort. For example, there's no real restaurant on site. Breakfast is included, but it's the same level of fare any basic hotel offers in their reception area buffet. They offer... More

After a long wait, I was finally able to get away from caregiver duties and take a couple days off as a respite break. Somehow, I managed to time it perfectly to coincide with a tropical low that quite literally followed me to the shore. I didn't get my desperately sought after days of sun and warmth, but I can't...

A three day stay at this facility was a big disappointment. When you pay more than $240 a night for a hotel you should expect to get modern conveniences and some elbow room. This place had neither. Their "efficiency" suite had total sq. ft. less than you would expect in a standard motel room. Granted, they managed to squeeze in... More

Dear jcampbell2014, We appreciate hearing from all of our guests, whether the comments are positive or negative. I am sorry you were disappointed with your accommodations. One challenge when reservations are booked through a 3rd party is that guests may not obtain all the information about their room that they would have if they book directly with a property. I...
