Far too many resort hotels provide services that are simply not required by independent travellers; the independent Trade Winds Hotel gives dependable personal service and combines a first-rate restaurant with beautifully appointed air-conditioned rooms at a price that makes independent travel between the islands a sensible reality - a really winning combination

Room Tip: The staff will helpfully recommend within a stated budget

After a 20 minute drive from the airport we reached Trade Winds Hotel where we found a warm welcome, minimal formalities and a few steps to our delightful relaxing room overlooking the tropical treetops and the Caribbean sea below. Boat trips to Barbuda to see the frigate birds and Montserrat to see the volcano were mixed with days on the beach and sightseeing around historic Nelson’s Dockyard. Dinner in the hotel’s Bay House Restaurant compared favourably with lunches in the gourmet restaurants like Catherine’s at English Harbour or Cecilia’s just 15 minutes by car from Trade Winds. l r. For our next trip we’re flying Virgin Atlantic where they include car hire so we can drive ourselves to all the beauty spots like Pidgeon Point, Calabash and Long Bay. MJ

Room Tip: Junior suite near reception has good view of the sea

I cannot say enough nice things about this hotel. From the time I checked-in to when I left I was treated like a VIP by all levels of staff. Management was extremely generous. The staff
( front desk, restaurant and housekeeping) were warm, friendly and professional. The room was huge, clean, quiet, with a nice porch that boasted a beautiful view. The shower pressure was great with plenty of hot water. Lovely amenitites in the room. The restaurant offered a romantic setting, extensive menu and finely prepared meals. I would never stay anywhere else and recommend this hotel unconditionally.

Room Tip: there are no bad rooms..............

Just had a week at this truly relaxing hotel and returned home knowing that all three of us working adults, had had a holiday. The warm welcome is just the start. Comfortable spacious rooms, with balconies and beautiful views. Wi fi in all rooms. Helpful, cheerful bar staff, informative and engaging waitresses. Restaurant open all day with 3 vast menu choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Each menu with plenty of local food specialities. What ever the time of day the meal experience was excellent, enhanced by bird songs and wonderful scenery all around the restaurant terrace.
Swimming pool in grounds spotless.
Trade winds is in a great position to see this small, luscious green Caribbean Island. St. John's the capital near by, lots of varied boat trips leave from Dickenson bay. Plenty to see and do or just sit on the nearby beach.
Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Thank you for everything.

My daughter and I stayed at the hotel from 12/1/11 to 12/6/11 and had the most wonderful experience. We had a beautiful room with a terrace overlooking the sea, comfortable accomodations and the most delicious meals at their restaurant. All the help working at the hotel were exceptional and I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone interested in Antigua.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a room with a view
