Finally getting round to catching up with my reviews! Smooth check in within the Tradewinds club, January 2012. Slight mix up with our sons room (should have been twin, not double) sorted overnight with no fuss. Pretty nice rooms with good ocean views, having stayed on the property previously we agreed that our previous room was far better(full ocean view, twin aspect - huge room superb bathroom) but it was unavailable within the Tradewinds package. The package in general worked really well for us as a family, we made really good use of the food available at breakfast and lunch and also soft drinks throughout the day and alcoholic at night. At night we usually had a little try of the taster sessions available and even managed to make do (rather than go out for a full meal) one evening when we weren't too hungry. I imagine people with very small appetites could manage to make more use of the food available and not buy actual meals......well maybe!! More often than not we would walk to the nearby shopping area where there are quite a few restaurants.
Within the Tradewinds package there is a designated area on the beach with palapas & sunbeds also an area where water/towels available. Since our previous visit an adults only pool had been built at the side of the property, it's a really nice area although whilst we were there it was pretty difficult to get beds unless you're a stalwart 'early bird' bed reserver, it was also incredibly quiet sometimes even too quiet (if that's possible).
