We've been going to TradeWinds for spring break for 6 years. It gets better every year. We keep going back because it is so child-friendly. Waiters will bring out the children's food first if asked; waiters are never irritated with the kids. There is an adults-only pool so splashing and laughing are acceptable at the other pools. Nice variety of...

This is a very old hotel that has the sole benefit of being on the beach Rooms are very dated and not as clean as they should be The ancient kitchenette does not make up for the lack of room service Be prepared to wake early as the staff makes a racket pushing carts around the courtyard before 7am

As the Director of Guest Satisfaction please accept my apology for failing to meet your expectations. We are currently in the process of changing all tires / wheels on our service carts so as to prevent any further noise disturbance early in the morning.

They have tried to keep the place up to date, they really have...furnishings, main lobby interior, etc. But it's still an old hotel and it looks like it.

Booked my wife and kids for a quick break for some sun and opted for the Tradewinds based upon the reviews on tripadvisor. The booking experience was great as I had to call the hotel a couple times for changes and additions. Probably the most friendly service I have had received.

As the Director of Guest Satisfaction please accept my apology for your unfortunate experience. Yes, we did indeed have a major water line to rupture resulting in many challenges. Most of which were corrected within a timely manner. However, regarding the toilet and air conditioning concerns I don't have enough information to research that completely. Again, please accept my apology...

Check in was very quick and efficient. We were pretty early for check in, but a room was ready which was so nice. The only part that could have been annoying was having to go to the time share desk to get our parking pass. Fortunately, there wasn't a line so it really wasn't a big deal. When I told...
