“Tradewinds Sandpiper Resort is great!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

The Tradewinds Resort was a totally wonderful experience! The staff was very friendly and attentive at every level, from the registration desk clerk to the gift shop attendant to the beach front attendant. The room was bright and clean. We had a gulf-view room and the view was awesome!!! The resort offered many activities. I took advantage of the Body Works Spa and had a facial, manicure and hair highlights. The staff there was excellent and treated me like a queen!! There was also an array of dining experiences. We visited the Piper's Patio and Palm Court Italian Grill. Each restaurant was very different; the Piper's Patio was casual dining with an outdoor patio and the Palm Court Italian Grill was a intimate finer dining experience. Both were very good and the room service was wonderful too. We also visited a few of the bars, including The Sand Bar. The bar staff was very interactive and fun!! There are several pools, including an adult only pool with hot tub which is a great feature!! St Petersburg Beach is beautiful, even in January!! We took several walks on the beach collecting shells and the sunsets are breathtaking!! I would definenitely recommend Tradewinds Resorts to friends and family and we will be visiting again!!!! It will take more than one trip to enjoy all the amenities offered at this great resort!!

Room Tip: Request a gulf-view room. It's a little more but definenitely worth the extra cost!

We lucked out when we chose Sandpiper! Amazing clean beach, very attentive & helpful staff in all departments - made a genuine effort to know their guests and went above & beyond to ensure a most enjoyable stay. Rooms were very clean, updated, & service was exceptional. We will definitely be returning next year & hopefully every year for an amazing get away!!

Great hotel, beachfront, 2 smaller pools, one for adults only, nice coffeeshop @ hotel, small but tidy rooms, good beds, private parking. Would stay there again if i come back to that part of the world. Kids loved the beach & the sea. Check out the waffle house 500 meters on tha left for good breakfast....and the Nori thai at 7612 Blind Pass Road for good thaifood..

A great resort on a beautiful beach! The amenities are fantastic, so much for kids to do. The beach is wonderful! As my daughter and I did not rent a car we used the hotel concierge for arranging transportation. Always had great drivers and super service! Hotel manager was helpful with what could have been a problem. Great service. They were very helpful with getting me on the beach (I have significant mobility limitations) and had a sand wheelchair. It was great!

Room Tip: As I have a significant mobility issue. I will be sure to ask next time specific distance to the ki...

Shared a suite with my sister over Christmas and New Years. The House Keeping staff were wonderful as usual and the accommodation was excellent value and very well maintened. Clean and tidy grounds, pool area and the beach was a magnificent view from our 6th floor room. It was such a pleasure to be there. The Front Desk staff always helpful. The staff at the restaurants and the hairdressing spa were very good also. This hotel was like "home away from home" at Christmas. We had our Christmas tree with presents under it and the children were so happy. We did our New Year dinner in our room as we had young children and enjoyed the fireworks at midnight from our balcony. This was a lovely holiday once again.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the beach have a wonderful view.

Stayed at this hotel with some friends visiting from out of town. Stayed in a suite with a nice ocean view above the pool. The room was a bit small but was very clean and had decent ammenities. It was mid-week and the hotel had few guests. The room service was good, the pool bar and dining staff was cordial, and the beach was great. One of the cleanest pools I have seen recently. Good value.

Room Tip: Get ocean view.

While the Sandpiper is an older hotel it is very well kept and maintained -- everything was fresh, clean, and our stay was everything we were looking for. Our suite was on the 6th floor with an amazing view of the Gulf from our living room. The common thread that I believe you will see from many of the reviews is the quality of the service and the willingness of the staff to make your stay the best possible. Peter at the front desk was gratious, accommodating and genuinely interested in making us welcome and comfortable. The beach area is clean, and well kept. Our morning walks were relaxing and watching the sun set every evening over the water was incredible. It is well worth the stay and we will be back.

Room Tip: With the willingness of this staff to make you happy, simply ask for the best room available like we...
