Tradewinds Grand Island Resort

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Travel Queen on November 14, 2000

First, off, this is a really nice resort. We rented the ocean front 1 bedroom suite and actually paid $165 per night plus tax (Entertainment 1/2 off rate) and $12 resort fee. The lower price shown above is for a regular room, ocean front. There are lesser prices for lesser views. The hotel is very well maintained. The staff wear safari style outfits and there is an abundance of staff. We had ants on a kitchen counter and called on the phone and within 2 minutes there was a maintenance man handling the problem. All of the staff is friendly. The rooms are nice and ours had 2 TVs with the Disney and Nickelodeon channels (a must for our kids). One of our tv''s wasn''t getting the Disney channel. We called the front desk and 5 minutes later another maintenance man was working on that. The staff at this hotel is extremely helpful and friendly. It''s refreshing in this day and age! There is a great weekend brunch available at Bermuda''s, one of their restaurants. There is a piano bar called Reflections on site and a nice dinner restaurant called Palm Court. The aquacycles are so much fun. They''re free with the room. There are at least 2 or 3 pools and a couple of jacuzzis on site. There are free paddleboat rentals and you can cruise along the waterways that surround this beautiful resort. There''s also a kids'' club that have free activities for the little ones. The cabanas are very convenient and are free with the room. The resort is rated 4 stars by AAA and I stand behind it. We went 2 times in 3 years, just returning last month (10/00).
