“Bermudas Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

Enjoyed two very good meals recently at Bermudas Restaurant. They were very appetising and good value for money. We have eaten there many times over the years and enjoy the restaurant because it is quiet and the service is attentive. Our server Tyler was particularly good. We will certainly return.

However, we were horrified to learn that there is a suggestion the restaurant is to change later this year and be incorporated with the dreadful sports bar, Beef of Grady's, which is adjoining. I can't imagine what Tradewinds are thinking about. I will admit Bermudas needs a makeover, but to get rid of it completely is a bad idea.

Whoever is thinking of making this drastic decision needs to remember that not all clients like to listen to loud music, watch TV and hear banging noises while eating on very uncomfortable seating. There is a need for some quieter places to eat too and getting rid of Bermudas is a very poor management decision.

As far as I can tell this would leave only Palm Court at Tradewinds as the main restaurant. It's very comfortable, but it's it's over-priced, and the food is nothing to write home about.

Please don't get rid of Bermudas - we will certainly not be eating anywhere at Tradewinds again if you do.

Bill V at Beef O' Brady's was an amazing server. However our experience at Bermudas was far from acceptable. I expected higher class experience when paying higher class prices. We were seated directly next to the door that separates Bermudas and Beef O' Brady's and were forced to listen to the loud noises next door as well as watching a parade of jersey clad servers constantly coming back and forth. Overall the food was excellent but someone needs to rethink how to improve the customers experience, until something is changed at Bermudas I would not recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere to have a nicer dinner.

The hotel staff was amazing. Service was unbelievable. Rooms were very clean and quiet. Beds were very comfortable. Resort is a great place for families but also caters to just adults. Activities on the beach will keep the kids busy. Dive in movie was a great added touch. Many bars and reasturaunts around the complex. Really has something for everyone. I spent a week here and had a great experience. Conference center was great lunch and breakfast had many choices. Wish I had six days of fun here instead of work. Will be back with the family.

Room Tip: would suggest a beach view room.

My husband and I were at the resort for a conference. The staff was just great to us. Very accommodating. I was unable to be in the direct sunlight during one of the conference functions, and one server--Nancy-- was so sweet to bring me drinks and snacks in the shady area on the edge of the party. Alla in the spa was happy and entertaining during my mani-pedi. The resort was clean and beautiful. Nice stay.

Stay was good. Location was great. Jenn and Elaine were awesome bartenders. Made us feel right at home. I would definitely recommend this resort to friends/family. You should definitely let people give their reviews without having to use a specific # of characters, as I am just typing this to try and fulfill the requirements.

Jenn is awesome! What a great, friendly employee that made us feel very welcome and comfortable! David was also a bartender and was very friendly. I enjoyed my stay! Well worth the price! The steak nachos Jenn and David recommended were so good, I wanted to order more! Love the rum runners too! Te view is great and the service was astounding!

I recently stayed for 7 days with my boyfriend and 2.5 year old son at the Tradewinds. We had an amazing time and would recommend this resort to anyone with children. Especially teenage children, all of the activities included in the price of the room will wear your children out! The staff was beyond helpful and friendly. I will admit the prices for food and drinks were pricey but that's to be expected. The bar staff, especially at Salty's makes it all worth it. They are loud, energetic, and friendly. The sand on St. Pete Beach is so white and soft, it really can't be beat! I encourage you to go on the sunset dolphin watching cruise out of Hubbard's Marina and John's Pass. I can't even tell you how many dolphins we saw. Throw in free beer and a history lesson of the area, perfect! We will definitely be back!
