“Great complex”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

We had a fantastic welcome at reception. Phobe was very helpful in organising a very reasonable upgrade to a 2 bedroom suite as we were staying 5 nights. The 2 bedroom suite was very spacious and a real luxury for a family of four. Housekeeping did a good job and while the tropical view did not include the sea, it was out to garden and kids pool. This is a very busy hotel and frequently holding functions in foyer, however we never felt it imposing on our holiday. Staff were consistently helpful and friendly, even arranging a complimentary late checkout as our flight was late in the day.
I loved being able to book our cabana on the beach and this hotels location is a winner. Kids loved the beach, slide and other activities. Though there are plenty of eating options, it can get expensive for a family if eating onsite all the time.

Jen, Elaine, and Andrienne are the best bartenders great help with planning time out on the town. The heaters kept us warm and the beers kept us cool. Adrienne is the one to see to find the best breweries in town.

We always have a wonderful time when staying when staying with the Tradewinds Resort (notice I said "with" instead of "at" as they always treat us like family.) Our room was fantastic, just steps from the beach with our own private patio. We were treated to live entertainment and adult libations at Sharktooth Tavern, had a wonderful light dinner at the Flying Bridge and even recieved takeout from Beef's during the big game. All first quality and serverd with a smile! Nothing beats a stroll on the beach during one of Florida's world famous sunsets. I will be staying again soon!

The best on St Pete Beach. Excellent staff, great amenities and the cleanliness was A+++++!!! I travel frequently, this hotel has it right in all aspects! Can't wait to visit again! The only slight negative was you can hear noise in the halls - just because of the age of the property and the thin walls, but you can get up early and sleep on the beach!

My review is a little late. We stayed here for 11 days in July to celebrate our 8 year anniversary. We loved every second of our stay! Our room and bathroom were modern and clean. Great water pressure, comfy beds and pillows. The staff was fabulous! Everyone was friendly, always opening doors, pointing you into the direction you are looking for, helping you find fun things to do around St. Pete. The property itself was spotless. The restaurants on the resort were great, Flying Bridge, Beef O'Brady's and Bermudas were all delish. The tropical drinks were awesome, do yourself a favor and just get the big one. The adult pool was very calm, because someone actually monitored it. Every room gets a beach cabana, and you can reserve your favorite spot nightly. Beach towels are convient to grab going to the beach or to the pool. We will be back July 2014! A huge thanks to Katie M for making our trip extra special :)
