“Great Family Resort”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Lots to do for everyone. Excellent maid service! Friendly visitors and staff make this place great!
Mini golf, pools, cabanas on the beach along with the inflatable slide are all included in the resort fee which was waived with a 7 night stay. Much more to do!

Room Tip: Section E is low noise level.

Have been vacationing at the Tradewinds for the past 15 years, it is an excellent resort with good restaurants. St. Pete Beach is gorgeous and clean. The recent changes at the resort are not good, There has always been a resort fee that covered all amenities including beach cabana. During my last stay there was a change with the beach cabanas, instead of going down and picking out your cabana, now you have to reserve a cabana everyday the night before via the internet and if you want front row cabana you now have to pay a extra fee of $15.00 per day. This is ridiculous!! Another negative change is all guest are now required to wear a arm band to identify you are a guest. These bands have to be worn during your complete stay, they are the type that you put on and have to cut them off to take them off which means they have to be worn continuously during your complete stay including during your bathing- YUCK!! These changes are negative enough for me to reconsider returning to the Tradewinds. How sad....

Love Tradewinds property. Great location on St. Pete Beach and lots to do with family. What will keep us coming back is the service. Very impressed that Albert the bellman knows me by name. Checked in two different times over a two week period and greeted by Albert. Very accommodating and extremely helpful. After checking in we headed to our room and was greeted by Katchi who ask if he could take a look at our AC unit ,he had a report that it wasn't working properly. Katchi worked very quickly and efficiently to fix the unit. He explained it was important to him we enjoy our stay at Tradewinds. Employees like this make it possible for your property to be rated top notch.

My wife has been so excited to go to this very family- friendly highly rated hotel for a long time. We booked two nights. We stayed ZERO nights!
After our less than mediocre dinner experience at the Bermuda (triangle of crap buffet) where we ate right after a late check-in sat evening 6-29-13, we settled in our room. Sticky dirty bathroom light switch aong with hairs in the tub. Dirty drink stained unwiped bedside table. Dirty multi-stained white comforters on both beds! One bed had a hairball under the sheets waiting for me. Lumpy beds and puke colored carpet. Wife called front desk to complain. We didnt want maid service offered. We wanted a different room. Said no rooms available. Lied, lied, lied. After awhile all of a sudden they had some rooms available! A miracle. Waited in the hot hallway for 20 minutes. Got our new room key. Room looks ok. Wife goes to use the potty and just before she sits down she notices dried pee stains on top of the seat and floor. These are stains that could be wiped clean if anyone gave a crap. We're outa here! Never again. Shame on you for being called a 4 star. More like a 4 star stain!

I just returned from a stay at Tradewinds. My husband went for a conference and I went along to relax. The resort itself is older like all the resorts in the area, but it is well taken care of. Like others have said, the staff is amazingly friendly. Every person I encountered went out if their way to be helpful and courteous. They have a great online system to reserve a cabana in the beach. When you go down the next day it is set up and waiting for you. Very nice. The beach is nice and there is plenty of room to find a quiet place if you want. Beef O'Bradys has a great happy hour from 4-7 to get some cheap drinks. You can take them to go. We also saw a lot of people with their own coolers at the pools and beach. This is a great family place with a lot of activities for kids. Lots of great restaurant in walking distance.

The Tradewinds resort has it all. Great big rooms, lots of dining options, convenient locations. Numerous pools plus a large beach. Activities going on all the time as well for all ages. I went for a convention, but thoroughly enjoyed the resort.
