“I love this place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

This was my second trip to Tradewinds. The room was beautiful. Service is great. Everyone who works at this resort is so friendly. I love being able to reserve a cabana from my iphone. Very quick and easy to do. Also, I love that you can order food from your iphone and have it delivered to your cabana. We rented a car to have dinner out a few nights. I would have been just as happy never leaving the resort during our five night stay. We had dinner at Palm Court and Bermudas. Palm Court was elegant and food was excellent! Bermudas had decent food, no complaints, but not as good as Palm Court. We had lunch at the Tiki Bar and also Flying Bridge. I love the casual atmosphere of both places. The drinks are so good! There are so many activities at this resort. There is something to do every day, if that's what you want. If not, just relax in your cabana and enjoy the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. I will definitely be going back!

Room Tip: look for room with gulf view

Rooms are so far away from the beach and things to do elevators not working !! We had my one year old with us and it was such a terrible experience .. Balconies are so small you can not fit on them !! If you are going to stay here I would suggest that you request a beach front pool room
This place was so expensive and not worth it at all... We still have two days here and I'm dreading them... Wish we would of picked a different hotel.. I have to say that my older kids are having fun with the slide and the water activities..

Room Tip: Choose a beach front pool room...other rooms are too far from everything it's a huge resort

We have been coming to the Tradewinds for several years now for short get-aways. The staff are all so helpful and friendly, willing to do whatever you ask in order to make your stay a pleasure. We have never had a negative experience. The kitchenette facilities are a great convenience, as well as the newspaper every morning. We love the activities available right on property, eliminating the need to drive elsewhere for recreation. We can't wait to return again. This is a gem right here in our own county. Thank you Tradewinds!

Room Tip: Higher rooms have the best view. Gulf view rooms are awesome for just a little more money.

The fitness center needs to be open MANY more hours. There is no steamroom, and the sauna is sub par. There should be much nicer steam/sauna/shower facilities adjoining the fitness center. The shower/changing rooms off Breckenridge are SHABBY. For the price and class of this resort, that is completely unacceptable.
Reserving a cabana online is rather lame. As a free service, this should be as easy as stopping as the desk or concierge and requesting one. I understand it needs to be done the day before and accept that.

The absolute brightest spot has been the waiter we had at Flying Bridge, Kyle White. His
attentiveness and geniuneness has brought to his table EVERY DAY. He makes us feel like we actually have a friend here at Tradewinds. THAT is priceless!
