Let me start by saying my husband and I have been vacationing at the Tradewinds since February of 1998. Before kids, we were able to vacation every year and sometimes twice a year. And our vacations were ALWAYS spent at Tradewinds. Back in 1998, Tradewinds boasted that the facility was "employee owned." And to us it showed. We found all...

Please accept our apologies for the experience of your first night. As per our discussion the following morning, the engineer was using a non-toxic basic combination of soap and water as a preliminary spray in the middle of the night at 1am. With our guest safety concerns at stake, we are very careful about liability. Our process after moving you...

We stayed here for 5 nights while I was attending a course in the area. My husband and kids had a great time playing in the pools and on the beach. We had a one bedroom suite which had a small fridge, stove and microwave. This was quite fortunate because we were able to make our own meals. Food at...

We had a very relaxing and nice stay at the Breckenridge building of the TW in St. Pete's Beach, FLA! Cabanas could be reserved each day (online) and were included with our room....As Bluegreen owners, all resort fees, etc. were waived. Yea!

We return to the Tradewinds each year for our annual conference, and every year we are extremely satisfied. Their attention to detail is wonderful, and my family always enjoys the many amenities of the hotel. The atmosphere is relaxed, you can bring your cooler wherever you want to go without remorse, and because there are so many pools you can...

found roaches the first night, requested a different room which was denied until the next day. We ended up staying in our room with lights and air-conditioning on, because it was too much trouble to pack up all of our stuff with 3 small children. A maintenance person came up and sprayed some soapy water behind the refridgerator, but did...

I stayed at the property for a convention that was held onsite and it was fantastic. The staff were always very helpful and worked hard to make sure we were accommodated. The resort has very easy access to the beach and has an adult pool so those of you without kids have your own private pool. The bar crawl that...

My family and I (husband and two kids aged 10 and 11) stayed at the Island Grand from July 14 to 19 of this year, and it was fantastic! We had stayed there almost 20 years ago and absolutely LOVED it then, so when we planned on going back to St. Pete's, we figured why not check it out again....
