“If I tell you about a hidden gem, will you promise to keep it a secret?”
Reviewed April 7, 2011

Location? Excellent. Cleanliness? Excellent Pool? Awesome. Cuteness/Quaintness factor? I kept thinking Wilford Brimley was going to show up to do a sequel to Cocoon at an updated Florida resort. Size? Perfect, just a small number of units, had our own porch to sit and read, watched dolphins off our own pier, and walked across the street to the gulf for swimming. Excellent food nearby. Had crepes on Bridge street for breakfast this morning, awesome. Will return.

We stayed here for 4 days and found the cottage type hotel very clean. The location was great. We found it strange that there was not a TV in the bedroom, but it was not a problem. They had alot of things to do but the whole time we were there it rained so we did not use. There was a grill and picnic table for every unit and chairs on the front porch. There was a nice pier and swimming pool but again, did not use. It would be a nice place for a family to stay. Staff was not unfriendly but not overly friendly. In all of our travels it was the first place we had a hard time finding someone to cash a traveler 's check.

Our stay at the Trade Winds Resort on Anna Maria Island has been delightful. Our view from our porch is delightful. The great blue heron that greated us on the nearby dock this morning was an unexpected treat. The near-by heated pool is warm and inviting. Our adventures at the Mote Aquarium, the St. Armands Center, and near-by Bean Point have added to the realxing days we have spent on Anna Maria Island. We loved the varieties of casual dining in the area and look forward to another visit to the Trade Winds Resort in the future. The staff has been very friendly and accomodating. We could have not found a better spot for the respite from the cold NYS winter!

We had never been to this part of the gulf before so we didn't know what to expect. The beaches and water are beautiful and the hotel was very neat and clean. These cottages are dog friendly and they are a perfect set up if you are traveling with your pooches. The Sarasota, Bradenton Beach, St. Armand's circle area are all very dog friendly with lots of restaurants to sit outside with your 4-legged friends. The pool overlooking the bay was very nice to sit and relax. I would definitely recommend Tradewinds for your next vacation.

Stayed there 2 nights with spouse, brother in law and uncle in law in 2-bedroom suite and father in law in a nearby 1-bedroom. Suites are nicely decorated, well laid out, with comfortable beds and nice furniture. Very nice veranda and view of bay from 2-bedroom. Most units face the parking area, which is really nicely landscaped and feels more like a lane than a lot. Was low-season though, might feel different full of cars. There are nice porches with ivy and the units are grouped in three's, with landscaped space in between. The pool area is spacious and nicely landscaped, on the bay with a pier for good fishing or viewing the bay. The water in the pool was perfect. Access to the gulf beach is just across the road and the beach is awesome - wide, long, beautiful. There are fair restaurants in walking distance and plenty of options within a short drive. The service was friendly, reasonable and helpful. A very comfortable, attractive place to stay.

Booked the 2 bed 2 bath (both en suite) unit (number 23) for three nights (plus fourth night free) and found the unit huge and spotlessly clean with all the facilities you could need for a short or long term stay. Spent lovely evenings with glass in hand on the enormous, private verandah overlooking the intracoastal waterway. Located right next to the pool, just in case you tired of the beach, the setting was perfect. No hesitation in recommending this location, indeed we are already planning next year's stay. Very good eateries within walking distance if required.
