“Will definitely be back!”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Can't say enough...the staff were amazing...very friendly and seemed to truly enjoy their jobs from the front desk, the cleaning ladies in the rooms to the beach cabana guys. Lots of staff everywhere, always cleaning and smiling. Excellent food in the restaurants ..the on site Pizza Hut was very handy on beach day...and the beach ...amazing powdery sand ... raked and cleaned everyday -great water slide and a huge basket of beach toys to borrow from...they have thought of everything to make your stay easy and enjoyable for everyone! Have to try the beach hammocks! ...they are amazing! oh and we did get see dolphins playing and jumping just off the beach. It was very hard to leave and we would love to go back ...SOON!

Room Tip: Don't bother bringing beach towels - they provide nice big soft ones! and the cabanas are inclu...

Traveled from Calif to the East/West Shrine game and stayed at the TW Island Resort. It was a fantastic visit. The staff was friendly, the place was beautiful, all the amenities were great. Wish I could have stayed longer. My husband and I plan to come back. I prefer the beaches here over Calif. If you go, you have to have the buffet, great food, price and staff.

Room Tip: Ask for the gulf view, you will not be disappointed.

TradeWinds Grand Island is the best family vacation spot in FL. The staff is outstanding. They are there to make sure you have a dream vacation with your family. We have been using the Tradewinds for conferences for many years, and they do not disappoint.

I recently visited the TradeWinds Island Grand as part of a business conference. I spent 3 nights and had an amazing trip. From the valet that parked my car all the way to the last person I spoke with when I checked out the staff was amazing. I didn't have a lot of time to explore much of the area so I mainly ate at the resort. I think I ate at the Flying Bridge three times. The food was very good and very reasonably priced for being a resort restaurant. My room was incredible. Waking up every morning staring at the water made the trip. I can't wait to bring my family back down here so my kids can experience all of the beach activities and what seemed like 20 pools. I would highly recommend this property.

This place has it all! I was a little skeptical after reading some negative reviews but realize those people are just negative nellies! Ya, the room was small, but no problem as I travel solo. Food I had here was very good. Staff, outstanding. Setting, gorgeous! Went to Pass Grille, via Trolley, easy nice trip...cute shops, try the Hurricane rooftop bar. Also John's Pass, can't recommend it tho. Did not enjoy it tho it had plenty of shops, etc. all in all a very pleasurable experience. Highly recommend Island Grand, worth the price!

My first visit to Florida and the TradeWinds made it a memorable stay. The grounds were great and the staff went out of there way in all areas. The conference food and snacks were very good and the facility made it easy to get my job done. I liked the place so much, I am considering a return trip just to vacation and take in everything the TradeWinds has to offer

Room Tip: A room with a view of the Gulf can not be beat.

Feel like part of the family when we go there. Four years in a row. So cool to have the staff remember you. The restaurants there are unbelievable. Good cost and very clean.

We like staying at the Guy Harvey Outpost. It's away from the activity and it has it's opwn pool and tiki bar.
