“Beautiful View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

We had the junior suite which was very roomy and comfortable. Large bathroom, plenty of seating, refrigerator and patio with 2 chairs and a table. We ate breakfast and dinner at the hotel restaurant. The food and service was very good. The hotel was very quiet in the rooms. Wifi was available in our rooms and in the bar and restaurant. Not a large area for parking may be the only downside to the location.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

This is a smallish hotel with the rooms dotted around the property in a pleasantly random sort of way. The view from my room balcony was spectacular, and was the same from the bar and restaurant. The restaurant is superb, and obviously popular all day as I couldn't get a table for lunch, but was able to eat in the bar.
The bedroom was large, as was the bathroom and both were spotlessly clean.
It's not close to a beach but it does have a nice pool and sun bathing area.
My only complaint was the slog up the hill in the scorching heat from the taxi entrance gate to reception with my two very heavy suitcases, and no assistance.
The girls behind the reception desk are very helpful and stored my bags for a while before leaving.

Room Tip: I would not recommend this hotel for anyone with any sort of disability. There are steps up to each...

Friendly staff nice for a getaway. Could be enhanced for the business travel with a desk and reading lamp. Would stay here gain but if on hoilday and not on business travel as it is a bit far from everything and taxi fares seem high. Nice view from bedroom annex. The restaurant is tops, excellent breakfast nice variety. Needs a fitness centre given its distance.

Room Tip: The rooms in the 50's are nice if you don't mind a bedroom annex

This small hotel provides excellent rooms, a beautiful pool and terrace and the most amazing sea views. We stayed here for four nights and the staff were efficient, friendly and very helpful. The restaurant serves very high quality, tasty food and we particularly enjoyed watching the small birds tweeting and fluttering around the terrace, during breakfast. It,s a shame the hotel isn't closer to the beach, it's a long walk back up the hill in 90 degrees! Although the views and the sunsets were worth it.

This property was a very pleasant surprise. It was chosen because it is one of the few hotels on the island with wi-fi in the rooms. While the internet connectivity isn't the best, the property is very nice. I would highly recommend it for a vacation. If they boost the wi-fi strength in the rooms it is a great place to stay for someone that's on Antigua for business.

The restaurant has delicious meals in generous portions.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the 50's.

Very pretty, and quiet. We started our honeymoon here. I thought it would've been closer to the beach. The staff was friendly. I didn't care for the rooms, they seemed outdated. Switched to different hotel after a few days, not much to do there. I probably wouldn't go back.

Room Tip: I didn't care for the rooms at all. We loved all landscaping, nice for walks.

We thank you for taking the time to send a review and would like to note that we do have one room block that is scheduled for refurbishment later this year. The other 2 blocks having been refurbished recently. Trade Winds Hotel is promoted as peaceful and tranquil just minutes away from numerous attractions and activities.
