We arrived on 12/2/05 to the Tradewinds and were welcomed with open arms. We were brought to an adorable little "Casita" in the back of the restaurant. It had 2 queen beds, a small refrigerator and bathroom. There was an air conditioner and ceiling fans. The room was very clean, the beds were comfortable. After settling in we went to check out the restaurant and asked if we needed reservations and they told us that they would be sure to accommodate us when we were ready to eat. The waitstaff was amazingly friendly. I felt like I was part of the family. By day 2 we were helping ourselves to coffee in the morning and looking over the Malecon at the beautiful views. The lady(Terry) in the gift shop called Bio-Bay and set up a tour for us. When we went swimming they provided us with the nicest fluffy beach towels. We fell in love with the staff at the restaurant, David (the chef) is a genius, we had pasta, seafood, filet mignon everything was good. Cathy, Dominique, Dottie, Cindy, Nuggett all were excellent. There were all so hospitable that we rarely ate anywhere else. We did try Becky's " La Dulce Esperanza" Pizza, breakfast sandwiches and homemade pastry that is out of this world. We had such a great time there that we were planning our next trip before we even left this. This was THE place to stay if you go to Vieques.
