“Great Family Vacation Resort”
Reviewed June 6, 2011

This is a great family resort, friendly employees, clean rooms, lots of activities for kids, and of coarse....beautiful beach! My mom and I enjoyed the Spa and had a great massage. We booked a one bedroom suite with a gulf view and it was breathtaking. The little kitchenette was nice because we brought breakfast goodies with us, there is a toaster and microwave. There are several places to eat at the resort and everything we ate was delicious. The waitstaff was super friendly and worth their 20% tips we left for them. My daughters love the movies by the pool...they showed "Tangled" one night and "Gnomeo and Juliet" another night. THe kids could swim and watch at the same time. If we did not have to visit family, we would not have left the resort. We are going to return in a couple years!

room was nice (but not extraordinary by any means), and facilities at the hotel are really good( it's excellent to have all the additional services like cabanas, etc. already included into the hotel fee). They could improve the quality of the service (staff knocking on my door at 9AM continously to clean the room is not a good service) and some small details that would make a big difference (having shampoo and soap for one in a 2 people room is not a very good service).

Still a great place to stay on the beach! Big resort with lots to do. It is great cabanas are included in the resort fee. Lots of great places to eat. Rooms are clean, but I would say they do not look spiffy - showing some age. But again they are kept clean. A lot of people go through this resort and the staff does a great job of keeping the public areas cleaned and maintained.

I stayed here twice in the span of three months while visiting friends who live in St. Pete. The rooms are nothing special (very big, mini-kitchenette, nice bathroom, beachy furniture). The grounds on the other hand are beautiful. Everything is very well maintained. The pools were always immaculate, the tables/areas surrounding the pool were always cleaned promptly and the beachhhhh! AHHH THE BEACH! The beach at TradeWinds was literally the widest beach I have ever seen! It was beautiful! The water was perfect, there were always chairs available, never too crowded. I would pay good money just to be able to use their beach for the day!
There are several restaurants within the resort and they were all pretty decent but there's also a whole bunch of options within walking distance that are great (try the Greek restaurant across the street and the little Italian bakery down the road).
The resort also offers a lot of activities to keep kids busy (volleyball, air jumpers, water sports, air hockey tables) but if you can go out you should definitely check downtown Tampa and St. Petersburg. Nightlife on the actual resort is nothing too special but there are a lot of bars/hangouts within walking distance of TradeWinds and you can always call Free Beach Rides (a roving golf cart) that will take you back the hotel free of charge!

The staff are so very accommodating and friendly. I had my two little dogs there and they loved the play yard and their little spot in the sand next to the hammock and palm trees. So much to do-it's like being on a cruise on you're on land. I would definitely recommend this resort. I was there on business so I missed many of the great activities; however, even with that it was relaxing. The food prices were reasonable! Go,,, you'll have a ball!

Went memorial day weekend. Amazing fireworks. Comfortable beds, nice room (2nd floor gulf front w/balcony). Take stairs, elevators too slow. Weather was perfect. Recommend using publix across st for groceries and buy your own floats from beach store across st. Floated in gulf all day! Recommend shell island trip from beach for dolphin watch and shell islands. Besides nice boat ride, saw many dolphins and found beautiful shells.
