Our first trip to the west coast of Florida and we just loved Tradewinds! Beautiful beach, great food! Loved our dinner at Bermuda's and our waiter Tyler was extremely attentive! We had wonderful frozen drinks outside at Salty's, terrific buffet breakfast back at Bermuda's in the morning. Relaxed and enjoyed every minute. Fun stuff to do all day.

I only live an hour away but The Tradewinds is my mini vacation spot. I visit as often as possible and always feel like I'm a million miles from home.

We spent our honeymoon at the Tradewinds some 25 years ago. This was our first time back. It is a lovely place and very relaxing. We had an oceanfront room with large balcony where we spent our mornings and evenings. Service was great and people are friendly.

We stayed at the Tradewinds for a wedding in November. We didn't have a car to drive around - but the resort had everything that we needed. There are plenty of restaurants (although pricey) and activities. Theres quite a few places within walking distance as well. The beach was great but beware of the big slide if you are looking...

First I have to rave about Ethan in Valet services! He inquired about the reason for our stay and when he found out it was my birthday, he sent something special to our room!

First, this is a large resort serving a lot of people. They have chains on site, motor driven carts going up and down the beach selling things, and that sort of thing.
