Parking was the only concern and that wasn’t much of an issue.

Very clean and they are following the CDC recommendations. Nice staff and good amenities for all ages.

Nice property, plenty of amenities, a bit overpriced. Not at all happy about being harassed at the door about wearing a mask but the no smoking policy around the pool wasn’t enforced at all

From the bellman to the waitstaff, Tradewinds is a traveler’s dream. They literally came to the parking lot to help with our bags and get us settled in our room. They also did the same when we left and loaded our car. Everyone was so helpful and welcoming. This hotel has it all! You never have to leave. Beautiful beach and pool. Indoor and outdoor bars. Live entertainment. Wonderful food available onsite. It is a little pricey but totally worth it if you are looking for a relaxing getaway. We plan on coming back for a girls reunion!

I loved every single part of my vacation with them and I for sure will be booking again this summer .. they have everything you need on the property. And it’s in a perfect location to just get away and let go.. front desk was amazing from the point of check in to checking out .. 5 stars for sure .

The property is clean with numerous dining options which is fantastic. Staff is f

Excellent resort for parents and children with many free amenities. Two heated family pools and well maintained private white sand beach with free cabana shades are the best part. Though weather was cold in 50s when we were there, we had a good time in heated pools and beach walk. Bungee jumping and restaurant entrees were expensive.

Great place for family vacation with kids. We did enjoy our stay at TW

The property is right on the beach and the food at all the restaurants was very delicious! All the staff was very accommodating to our requests, we were traveling with little kids so that made a huge difference. The house keeping department was the only problem. First night, our beds were not made and we had to call them to get it done. Bathroom tub was also filing up with water, toilet was not flushing well, our safe was not working and so was the hairdryer. When we called, they came to fix it. The manager was understanding of our issues and compensated us, which was a nice gesture. Overall I would recommend this property!

Great for kids. Pools quite small and very crowded, close to everything in town.

Liked, the beach front amenities. Each room was able to reserve a 2 person cabana and ocean swimming conditions were good. Favorite was renting the floating cabana to soak up sun in the water!. Dislikes, room safe was broken, bathroom shower water preasure was very weak, not enough to was ahampoo out of hair, swimming pool and hot tubs too small for the capacity of the hotel. Pools were crowded. And only 2 elevators for a 7 story hotel. So wait was long.. Finally, we had 2 families book using Orbitz, it was told to us incorrectly that Rum Fish and Tradewinds was only 200 yards apart from each other. In reality to other properties were between the 2 hotels. It was a 20 minute walk from one to the other. With kids and beach products to carry made it complicated to meet wirh each other, or move from one site to another.

We really liked the location and resort overall. It is a little dated, but staff was friendly and helpful.

Thank you for the rating of EXCELLENT, and your support during such difficult times. As Summer comes to a close, this was one of the last weekends to take advantage of, thereby it was very busy / high occupancy. With parking passes required for registered guest, this helps to restrict local traffic attempting to come to the beach. Hope to see you again!
