Stayed here for two nights and I didn't want to leave. We were in a one bedroom oceanfront suite and it was good size, clean and comfortable. The shower was awesome (I'm picky about showers, I hate crappy showers like in most hotels). The beds were really soft and comfortable. Unfortunately we didn't have time to do a lot of the activities...the only one we went to was Captain Redbeard's show and my 5 year old loved it. The beach is beautiful...soft white sand, warm water, no seaweed like up north. Nice cabanas too. Loved that it was only a short walk from our room! We went to both restaurants on site...Bermudas was pricey and the food was just OK. The food at Beef O'Bradys was much better and more reasonably priced.
The only thing I didn't like about the room was that the bedroom faced the courtyard and the bullfrogs in the lily pond croaked all night! Also there was no screen on the slider going out to the balcony...would have been nice to have the door open for fresh sea air. If I ever go back to St. Pete Beach I will definitely stay here again.

This was one of the best places my family has stayed out in the longest time. From the great room and amenities all the way to the staff that was very helpful and courteous.

Thanks to the staff at the Tradewinds for one of the best family trips in a long time.

once you check in you do not have to leave the location, they have everything that you need right at your finger tips. very kid freindly along with separte areas for adults. four stars. every member of the staff went out of there way to say hi and ask if we needed anything. you have have kids then the konk area is the greatest .

Room Tip: get one that over lokks the water, or get one of the rooms right on the beach level.

What an outstanding location! This resort has all the amenities! No matter what age your children are, they will be happy every day! Everything is right there on the property! So many water sports and beach activities, and 3 pools. They have ocean "toys" and a gigantic beach slide as well as volleyball courts and hammocks for complete rest and relaxation. They even have a pool that is totally shaded in case your little one has had too much sun, they can still enjoy the water, while you can still see the ocean! There are many things "wet" and dry, for middle school age and above. They is a gyrosphere and bungie jumping, paddle boats, and putt putt golf on site! There are many restaurants, from casual poolside/beachside to others that are linen napkins and tablecloths for a special occasion meal. All the food we sampled was delicious. Our filet was tender and cooked perfectly! Our room was great, with a small kitchen, so we could bring home doggie bags, and eat breakfast etc. should we desire. There are supplies for cooking dinner meals too. Towels and lines were plentiful, and there were no resort fees for lounge chairs, and beach towels like you find in some places. We were there for a convention, so we did as much as time allowed. If you have a car, do not miss the Dali Museum in St Pete's..it is well worth the short drive! I would definitely return for any type of family vacation, or business meeting. We saw several weddings taking place while we were there, and there was space for all of this, and more with plenty of room for everyone and all events. Resort staff was pleasant and cheerful, and we found it to be a memorable trip. It was a terrific place to stay.

Room Tip: Our room did not have a queen size bed, although I am sure they are available. We did not specify, s...

I would highly recommended this hotel to anyone with children! You do not have to leave the complex. It has everything you need 5 swimming pools, water slide on beach, small paddle boat area, games on beach, beautiful beach, and great restaurants! I met my two sisters ages 53 and 57 with my two children ages 10 and 12 and we brought our 84 year old mother and none of us were disappointed!
The only negative I would give is that next time, I would pay extra for a room right next to the beach as it is such a large complex, we had a far walk to the beach, which was hard for my mom. And I do not understand why the adult pool did not have a hot tub as all the other pools did?

Room Tip: Pay the extra money and get one near the beach! :)

I returned from our CSIA conference Saturday. A complete success, and the Trade Winds had a great deal to do with it.

The service was excellent - I would like to point out Shelly, at Awakenings, as an example of what great customer service is all about! A nice way to start the day!

I have not traveled to the lower gulf of Florida but would certanly concider a vacation at your resort. The amenities were great, from resturants and bars to pools and the beach. As this ws a business trip, we did not have enough time to explore the area, however, lots of great comments from guests regarding things to do, places to see.
