We stayed at Trade Winds Hotel for 6 days. We found the service brilliant, helpful and efficient so absolutely satisfied with our stay. The rooms are very spacious, well equipped with amenities, bathroom toiletries, coffee tea, air-conditioning. The hotel room was a little outdated and didn't have the modern flash fit-outs that 4 or 5 star hotel have but it was adequately clean, serviced each day and very much comfortable. We stayed in room 35, lucky to have been given a room as our booking was not recorded/booked but our work colleague who arrived the day before did have a booking. We were super happy with room 35 although we were worried to start with given it was directly above the pool area, next door to the gym and only had a queen size bed in a massive bedroom that could have easily accommodated a king size bed. The positioning was brilliant, and with the double glazed windows there was no noise from the public areas at all. The views from our room were lovely and with the doors open in the evening we had the beautiful trade wind breeze available. The room had an extensive lounge room area separate to the bedroom with a full size lounge suite, a study desk, bar fridge, coffee table and TV. Special mention to Kymsheba who provided outstanding customer service and was especially nice to talk with and had a lovely and very much appreciated sense of humour. We would consider without a doubt or hesitation, staying here again should we be so lucky to venture to Antigua again. Thank you to all the staff at Trade Winds Hotel.
Just a night out with family, to relax, eat, few drinks and catch up on missing times. It was a perfect night. The ambience was already set in motion - nice flowing wind, scenic view of Sandals Resort and Runaway. Our Food and drinks were on point. The restaurant is one of my favorites.
I was in Antigua for 3 days. This hotel offers breakfast - not included in room rate, it is within a short distance to the airport and St John's, reasonably fast wifi (average 3Mbps), restaurant options are plentiful but service is slow (reserve additional 15-20min for lunch or breakfast). It is not listed in many travel agencies, one time I got a confirmation from travel agent but upon arrival they did not have a reservation. Fortunately hotel was lightly loaded and were able to accommodate. Recommend to call in before coming and confirm.
This warm and friendly hillside hotel with wonderful sea views with fantastic sunsets, hosted over 20 of our wedding guests and put an amazing sunset cocktail party to kickstart our family’s wedding week. Their helpfulness was second to none and everyone had an amazing evening. The guests loved their room, the view and the proximity to Dickenson Bay Beach (5 minutes downhill walk) also the great deck pool and 10/10 breakfast! Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you, Tradewinds, Mark, Mike and your lovely staff for the amazing memories and a great venue!
What to say here, and I will be critical!!!! Yes the view is lovely, not Amazing but very nice. The manager who is in charge here needs to take the blame for the staff, as it is real a hit and miss, and as he is in charge of appointing Reception does need a lot of attention as it is the window of "THIS" business. Maybe the hotel is owner run, I don't know, but I to had the same feeling as other guests and when you pay $180 (included taxes, the don't show it initially on the site only when you are about to pay) and plus taxes. But there are also good staff there, so I don't want to be to harsh here, management just fix it. It is easier to be nice than not. Otherwise don't go in the hospitality industry. Rooms are 2 to 3 star no more. Air-conditioning works well, and is quite. ( mine was). Food is very good and also breakfast was, so a good kitchen. The decking to sit on outside is fantastic even at night with fake fire that was excellent. I am a solo traveler but met people on the deck and talked for hours. The hotel is old and not on the beach, and really, if you want to go to Antigua one must be very close to the beach, hence I wont give it more the 3 star.
Over the years I have had a hard time finding a hotel in Antigua that catered to business people rather than tourists. I have stayed at Trade Winds in the past but in my opinion they were not up to par with offerings in some other islands such as Barbados, St Lucia and Trinidad. On a recent trip to Antigua i stayed there again and was pleasantly surprised. The reception service was very personalised and extremely helpful, a gym had been added to the hotel and the rooms had been redone to include full size desks and a comfortable layout. I would definitely stay here again on a business trip.
A most wonderful setting overlooking Dickenson Bay and the Caribbean. It was the first venue for five fantastic parties, which was to include the wedding of Ben and Steph. The scene for this evening party was set with lights and candles. Approximately 90 guests attended from around the world, including people from the UK, USA, Israel, Australia and Nigeria. Credit goes to Ben's Mum, Janet, along with Mark, the owner, in creating a fabulous atmosphere. There was soft music, most appropriate for the age range to dance to, whilst everyone could mix and chat comfortably. Mark's staff were amazing as they looked after everyone and yet smiled and even danced with guests thereby making everyone feel very comfortable. It was as if the wedding bolder had been pushed up to the top of a mountain and from then on the five days of parties were assured of success.
Stunning hotel it's everything I imagined it to be feel so lucky to have had my first trip to the Caribbean staying at this hotel. Rooms are beautiful love the wicker furniture balcony with a breathtaking view comfy very clean room! Staff amazing very friendly & chatty our crew had a little wait before getting our rooms so got free cocktails without even asking! Amazing service! Food is absolutely delicious loved the veggie burger & the shrimp salad! Very good value for such high quality food.. last but not least hotel is in a great location short walk to the beach down a steep hill but free shuttle bus if you don't fancy the walk & about half an hour away from the town. Really hope I get another trip here soon if not il be taking my family here when I get time off :)
Fast efficient check-in, then escorted to room 9 on ground floor by Milton Security Officer. What a lovely gentleman! We were given a quick tour around the room and given time to ask any questions. The room was large, bright and airy with a huge very comfortable bed, spectacular views, and powerful air con and complimentary bottle of water. WiFi worked very well. Plenty of space for clothes and luggage. Deep tub and piping hot water in bathroom (nice!) with complimentary toiletries. Housekeeping did an excellent job and the room was always fresh and immaculately clean. We passed the small, adequate pool on way to the Bay Restaurant where the food and drinks can only be described as superb! We ate delicious, nutritious wholesale food and dined like kings for 13 nights. The Restaurant Supervisor (Michelle Thomas) and her Team treated us like Family the service was excellent and professional and still friendly. The pool was quite small but perfect as I'm not a strong swimmer. My partner took advantage of the gym which he says was well-equipped with the apparatus he required and an enjoyable experience. There is nothing I would have changed about my stay at Trade Winds- a stress free, restful stay in a beautiful remote location, taken care of by lovely staff. Thank you, we will be back!!!
This has been my second stay to Trade Winds in 4 months and they deserve a review. I'm actually very happy I was recommended because from the guards to the front desk then the bar and kitchen staff make you feel like home away from home. Never have to ask they are always ready to assist and serve with whatever you may need. If you are in Antigua for business or pleasure make Trade Winds your option.
