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.

The amenities are a huge plus for those with kids. They loved the mini-golf, beach, pools and floating water park. We liked that everything was on site. For the adults, the resort is lacking in quality food choices. Most the menus are universally the same at the places to eat on site and the food is your standard overpriced touristy junk (burgers, chicken tenders, misc fried stuff). And if you want a cold drink on the beach it'll cost you at least $11 each and $6 for one beer. Gets pricey after spending so much already on staying at the resort.

Perfect for families. Beaches beautiful, rooms clean and plenty of space to just be

Room was a little dated, but the view was excellent and the service was great.
