We enjoyed being able to use the amenities at both Trade winds resorts. The staff were all pleasant, and hard working. We enjoyed the outdoor music daily as well!

Amazing staff!!!! Everyone was so very friendly and helpful. So many things to do and restaurants to eat at, at the resort. You wouldn’t even have to leave. Everything was clean, the rooms were a bit small and could use updated but we were very happy overall with our stay.

The sheets in the room had what looked like blood stains and they were not changed the whole stay and a dead bug was smashed on the bathroom wall as well as the toilet had a broken part. The room next to ours had very loud people til at least two in the morning several nights

Staff was awesome. Super friendly loved all the amenity options.

Friendly staff, clean room, clean restaurant, clean pool area, great cabanas on the beach. We got great suite ocean view with balcony upgrade with discount. Property needs some upgrades-in the bathroom, living room needs new furniture. If you are offering kitchen with a stove and refrigerator, would be nice to have some dishes-plates, silver ware.

We just recently returned from a 4 night 5 day stay ay Rumfish. The rooms they show on their website are very misleading. I paid extra for an upgrade (13x13 room) that I later said put me back in a regular room the upgrade is not worth it. The standard rooms are 12x12. Our bathroom ceiling leaked from the floor above us and my husband stepped on a nail/tack that was sticking out of the rug. They felt a reasonable compensation was for 3-1 scoop ice cream cones. Really? The "free" activities are not at all of quality. The surf rider is for very small children and the mini golf is 9 pieces of plywood shaped in different rectangles. We were VERY disappointed. Will not EVER go back.

Nice? Clean, cozy with some nice amenities. Great for families. Plenty of beach.

The hotel was nice. Older building but remodeled and very clean. Convenient location, close to stores and restaurants. I liked the smaller resort feel, our room was very close to the beach. Parking was convenient and close to rooms. Overall, great place to spend a long weekend if you just want to relax on the beach. One side note, I thought the resort fee was included in the room price, it was a little confusing. Turns out it isn’t, so don’t be surprised for the $50+ a night...

The staff was so friendly and super helpful I can not find anything to complain about. There was so much to do there between RumFish and Tradeswind.

Mixed reactions: property is aged, like a big 60s motel being nicely upgraded, but pricing was high. Very loud acoustics, could hear snoring, in neighboring rooms and all convos in hallways. Staff very friendly and helpful, but would start cleaning and repairs at 7:30 a.m., loud activity and voices. Bar drinks were very light and expensive. Amenities decent but mostly for young kids. Food good but mostly located at partner property. Overall: I would not return, spouse & older teen say they would.

Everything was great my kids had a blast we will definitely be back

Nice rooms close to beach plenty to do Expensive resort fees and food/drink

The cabanas and beach are great. The rooms are okay

Loved that there was an adult pool for those looking for rest & relaxation. All staff were extremely friendly, resort was very clean even the beach area was pristine. In close proximity to wonderful restaurants and the other Tradewinds resort. We will definitely be going back in the future and may even make it an annual event. I highly recommend the Tradewinds Sunset drink, our absolute FAV! :)

The property was great for kids - big slide, beautiful beach, pools.

Exhorbitant construction occurring during our 4 day stay. Very loud with little respite.

As the Director of Guest Satisfaction, please accept my apologies for the inconveniences you have mentioned. Most of our linens are processed on-site, and in situations of such is typically a rust stain from the mechanical process and unfortunately missed when being placed on the bed. Regarding the unruly guest next door, a call to the hotel operator would have resulted in security responding to the room. We certainly hope that all guest would be respectful to others around them. If I could be of any further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact me directly. Thank you, Doug Rogers
