“My son's 15th birthday party & overnight stay”
Reviewed October 10, 2011

My son's 15th birthday party was held at the TradeWinds. In addition to the party, certain of his friends were to stay the night. Our family and friends as well as my son's friends had a fantastic time. The Party was held at the beach during twilight hours through the night where pizza and music flowed. All the kids had a great time and were able to have enough freedom where they felt comfortable yet safe. All the staff catered to what my son and his friends wanted as far as the food and the music as the music was permitted to be broadcast on the beach from a listing off of my son's iPod. The suite rooms were beautifully decorated and looked new and very clean. Overall great time had by all at a very reasonable price.

Room Tip: All the rooms are very nice but the Beach Side rooms can't be beat for the view.

Staff was very nice, rooms are clean, and there is lots to do. Beach and pools are just steps away. Would go back for sure.

Always a great place to vacation, the TradeWinds just keeps getting better. While the older 'Island' decor was festive at the time, the updated rooms are now eleagant! Beautiful, in fact. So when you make reservations, be sure to ask for the new rooms as they still have a number of older rooms waiting to be updated. Regardless of which room you opt for, they have to be some of the cleanest I have ever spent time in. And if anything should go wrong, they are there immediately to make things right. Just ask for Justin. The food is as good as it gets! You could spend all your time on the property eating at their great restaurants which cover the gamut of costs. Unlike some other hotels on the beach, the Island Grand is not stuffy. Spend a day and you feel part of the 'family'; everyone is sooooo nice.

Room Tip: While the Poinciena (?) has not undergone renovations yet, it is close to the sands, is a low rise...

Booked a two night stay through Priceline. After we checked out we noticed our digital camera was missing. We were going to use it the first day we were there but we chose not to get sand in it as its a nice fuji s9000 camera (over $1k new). We contacted the hotel the second we couldnt locate it after checking out. They were unable to find it but we are 100% sure the camera never left the room. The only thing they told me to do was to contact the police...

Again the hotel is nice but remember to use the safe!

We stayed at the Tradewinds. What a great resort! It is giant property with endless ameneties. Great for families. They are very attentive to your children. If you come with children, stay in the Breckenridge. If you do not have children, stay in the single rooms overlooking the lagoon. It is much quieter. The beach is excellent. Stay away from the dolphin excursion. It isn't worth the money. They drop you off at "Shell Island" which is just the Don Cesar hotel. You can walk there! The dolphins we saw were all in the bay at Madeira beach. You didn't need to leave the bay to see them. Try one of the local tours instead. It is cheaper and you will probably get more for your money. Great hotel, though. Beautiful sunsets. Can't wait to come back!

Room Tip: If you ahve children, stay in the Breckinridge building. If you want quiet, stay in a room overlooki...
