Tradewinds Beach Resort

Reviewed May 15, 2011

If you are NOT looking for a fabulous retreat that is quiet, relaxing, comfortable, clean, and friendly with beautiful beaches, a beautiful pool, dolphins swimming by, pelicans flying around, gorgeous romantic sunsets, and a great selection of places to eat and have yummy cocktails all at bargain prices then I'm sorry but Tradewinds on Anna Maria Island is not for you. But if you are willing to leave your troubles behind and visit what we think is a PERFECT getaway that might be just what YOU need then bring your flip-flops, sun block, swimwear and beach hat and we'll see you there because we are definitely going back.

I recently stayed here with my wife and two small children (5 year old and 5 month old). Wanted something quiet, small and not a mega-resort. Friends had stayed at their sister property - Tortuga - a year before and suggested we stay here. It was perfect. Small cottage with 1-bedroom and a full kitchen. Perfect for a 5 year old on the pull out couch and our infant in the pack-and-play in the bedroom. We loaded up on groceries for breakfast and lunch and dinner (only ate out for dinner twice). The front porch was great for coffee in the morning and just relaxing and watching the palms sway. We spent Mother's Day weekend (May 6-10th) plus a few days. The staff was wonderful and always smiling and always making sure our stay was comfortable. Price was reasonable for the island and the location is great. Granted, you have to cross a very busy road to get to the beach, but its worth the short walk. Beach area is clean and far enough away from the public beach that it is not super crowded. Small pool overlooking the bay is peaceful and perfect for relaxing after too much sun on the beach! We look forward to visiting again in the future. Trolley stop right out front and their sister property Tortuga is just two properties down the road towards the Bridge Street District. Highly suggest having dinner at "Eat In Here" down in Anna Maria as well as "Banana Cabana" in Bradenton Beach (just walking distance down past the Beach House.

My family and I had a spectacular time there.
We were able to enjoy the gorgeous beach, while staying at a simply amazing place.
We are so glad to have chosen Tradewinds Resort. They definitely delivered a 360 degree hospitality and comfort experience with a wonderful staff, and great accommodation.
There is no doubt we will definitely be back.
The whole experience made us leave already wanting to go back.
We came home wishing we could have made that place our home.
It definitely is a paradise in Earth.

What we liked: lots of flowers and gardens, very cozy, clean, nice pool next to the bay, short walk to beach, shops, restaurants, segway rentals, and beautiful shady bike path. Nice lounge chairs on the beach and fabulous sunsets on the gulf every night!

What we didn't like: fairly busy road to navigate every time we went to and came back from the beach, pull-out sofa in living room took up entire living room when pulled out, our friends in #11 got bed bug bites (verified by doctor) from the king bed. Hoping they did not bring home any in their suitcases! Also, we thought the price was a bit steep. If it were not for the bed bugs, we would recommend this hotel.

TOTALLY UNTRUE is our response to the claim of bed bugs at Tradewinds Resort. It appears the guest that supposedly got some sort of insect bite is not the person writing the review. An absolutely complete thorough inspection of both the units in question has been done and there are ABSOLUTELY NO BED BUGS AT TRADEWINDS RESORT. The guest absolutely did not get bed bug bites while with us.

I was very impressed with how clean and updated the units were. The hotel's website photos are accurate and do the place justice. The beach is across the road, but easy to get to. White sandy beach was beautiful. Not very crowded considering it was spring break. Appreciated the umbrellas, towels and boogey boards the hotel provided. Very functional kitchen and Publix grocery store about a mile away had everything we needed. Definitely glad we choose this place.

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.
