“Awesome stay at Tradewinds, yet again!”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Over the years, we have stayed at Tradewinds multiple times; we have tried other locations on the island too, but none of them are as great as the time we have while staying at Tradewinds. The staff are always friendly and accommodating; the units are always in great condition upon arrival and it is a quiet location. There are also umbrellas provided for the beach which is an added bonus so you do not have to bring your own, as well as beach towels; both conveniently located outside of the office. (There are also lounge chairs provided at the beach!) The pool is also a great area to spend time. The water is always clean and every day there was someone at the pool to clean off the chairs and attend to the area to assure it was ready for the guests each day. The dock was also well kept and a great spot to fish for those guests who enjoy fishing or even just a relaxing place to enjoy the view of the bay. We always see dolphins in the Bay which is an added bonus! Overall, I would most definitely reccommend Tradewinds on Bradenton Beach to anyone. You will not be disappointed with your stay!

If you are looking to relax and unwind, you must visit Tradewinds. Lots of families and couples and EVERYONE is so nice and friendly!! Our unit was clean and inviting and we wished we could have stayed longer. The beach is white sand, the water crystal clear and refreshing! So relaxing!

We loved it here. It was clean, quiet, beautiful. Our porch faced the bay and we were able to watch the boats go by. There was a private fishing pier right there, chairs to sit on, could watch the fish. The pool was clean and beautiful. Beach across the street, not far at all. Restaurants within walking distance. Definition of Heaven - Tradewinds, for me, anyway. Place was clean, comfortable. Love it. Can't wait to come back. Loved having laundry room just in case. Beach umbrellas and towels provided. Friendly staff. I will definitely stay here again. Thanks. Deb Emery.

My favorite place to get away and NOT leave town...love Tradewinds Resort...very friendly staff ...just pack your bathing suit and sunscreen, they supply beach towels, lounge chairs, umbrella, floats and the most beautiful private beach..why would you go any where else..cute little vintage cottages surrounded by lush tropical plants, trees and coconut palms...close shopping ..no need to drive ..the island trolley is free..picks you up right out front..do shopping, or go Island site seeing or out for drinks and dinner...my home away from home...Enjoy...

Room Tip: I like the north side cottages, just my preference...

This was our 5th visit to Tradewinds.We don't even want to try a different place because this resort has exactly what we are looking for.I won't dwell on the often mentioned "tropical foliage","quaint cottage style".But i can't say enough about the pool area.Plenty of space and loungers for when you want to get away from the salt and sand for a while.The pool sits right on the edge of Sarasota Bay with a large pier off of the pool deck.This resort allows smaller dogs at some of the units.A few of the north cottages have a grassy area in front,and they all have ample space behind them.They even have a dog waste disposal station with scoop bags.We are considering driving down with our pooch next year.One of the best features is the walking distance to the beach/bay,restaurants,bars,and shops.Thanks to the A.M.I.travel forum we found the rock formation a couple hundred yards south for some decent snorkelling.We saw some colorful fish,a stingray,a huge tarpon(i think) But best of all,a manatee,appx.10 ft.long,swam within 2 ft. of us.I can't even begin to describe that feeling!See you in the fall Tradewinds.

We loved our 3 night stay so much in the beginning of May that we are back again now May 25-29th! We had a North cottage #18 and loved the size of it, the amenities, the ability to sit on the porch and view the Bay and the pool. Immaculate place, friendly staff.

We have been going to the Tradewinds/Tortuga for years. Love the staff, the grounds, and the accomodations. Old Florida beats the high rises of other Florida destinations. There is no place better to relax and enjoy the uncrowded beaches.
