Business Trip

The staff was excellent at assisting both myself and the other traveler. The helped use the business center for a large print job and assisted us in many other needs as well. We had to catch an early flight and they made sure we had breakfast to go. The hotel is lacking some amenities but the staff is excellent.

Good trip

Facilities were clean, but had problems accessing the wireless internet. There is a nice restaurant inside but it is SOOOO expensive. The beach was nice and so were the pools. We would have preferred an adults only hotel but overall had a good experience.

Amazing 15th Anniversary

My husband and I had a wonderful time at TradeWinds. We never had to leave the resort except to go to the Dali Museum (which is amazing). And the resort's bar crawl was so much fun! Their pet friendly too!

Dining tip: In Hotel

If you book this hotel don't leave for food. We made the mistake of getting breakfast at a little place across the street, terrible idea. There are far too many options at this resort to go anywhere else.

Fun Family trip

Lots of activities for kids to do around the pool. The blow up slide on the beach was great for kids and adults. The 6 person suite was a little small but nice. We would stay there again.
