Awesome! Food and service were top notch, we couldn't have asked for anything more. Even a tropical storm couldn't put a damper on our festivities

We had the best experience here. Alana Owens, the wedding coordinator, was superb... always responsive and helpful, she really made everything turn out fabulous! A lot of our guests were from out of town and stayed at the resort and everyone had a great time and commented on what a nice resort it is. We will definitely be going back for our first anniversary!

The TradeWinds was a perfect setting for my daughter's beach wedding! The wedding coordinator, Julie Manes, is one of the most friendliest, down to earth people I have ever met. No problem seemed to be too big nor small to her. She worked with us the whole year in planning and when it came to our big weekend she went above and beyond in helping us. In fact, the whole TradeWinds staff are wonderful. It is a family run resort and the human touch is there. From the friendly car attendants, the concierge, the pullman, the day and night managers, (Tom the night manager was so very helpful and friendly when we were putting our table favors out),the serving staff, ect. I would highly recommend the TradeWinds to provide not only a beautiful setting for a wedding, but a friendly, helpful place that you can have utmost confidence in.~Suzy Cochrane (M.O.B)

We married at the Trade Winds on April 6th 2013 . We first decided on this venue because after visiting almost all the beach resorts on st pete beach this was the best as far as the quality of the hotel & the value. Julie made it super easy. We were married on the beach & had our reception in the main ballroom. They were great about setting everything up & we were able to use the ballroom the night before to get all of our things together (place cards, candy buffet) They were very accommodating to anything we needed. We had our rehearsal dinner there as well outside around the fire pit & it was BEAUTIFUL & private. It got a little chilly at night and they even gave my little nieces Trade Winds sweatshirts. So sweet!! The food was great, the staff was very friendly. We lost the flower girl basket & last minute they made one for me. I will say the size of the resort is very large which can make things a little difficult. We lost several things after my wedding including cameras, my wedding shoes, my sand ceremony kit and no one seemed to find them. I would recommend still having an extra helper besides Julie she is too busy. The resort DOES have a lot of weddings, but I never felt I was just another bride. We went over on the time (having too much fun) about an hour & they never said anything. Id recommend this venue to my friends.

Where to start, I am the Father of the Bride, our 3rd daughter to be married, so I do have some experience . Every aspect of the wedding planning , the hotels services and the event met the highest level of standards and service that we could have asked for and the value we could have expected. We used virtually all of the services of the hotel, the valets, the restaurants, the hair salon, the beach and resort facilities, the wedding planning facilities and many, many individual members of the staff in different capacities. All of the staff performed exceptionally well. The wedding planning was extensive and handled exceptionally well, more details than could have possibility been imagined were carried out flawlessly. Even the doormen handled the “Mission Critical” assignments, transporting my wife’s gown and my daughter’s bridal gown perfectly! Julie Manes, our amazing wedding sales manager, was accessible by phone, email and in person before the event, right up to the event and the day of. She handled all of the large and small details that were necessary to provide such a flawless ceremony, cocktail reception and dinner. The food and service were exceptional. All of the hors d’oeuvres and service during the reception and dinner were exactly as we had asked for, hoped for and expected. Our dinners came our warm and prepared as asked for, some of the best banquet food we have ever eaten. The preparation team had to set up the wedding Pavilion in a very short period of time and turned it into exactly the "Vision" my daughter and wife had pictured. The entire facilitating of my daughter’s wedding weekend was above and beyond our expectations. I wholeheartedly recommend the Tradewinds.

Tradewinds was a great place to have our wedding. We have a lot of family that live out of state and were looking for a venue that would allow our guests to create their own family vacation in conjunction with celebrating our marriage. The Tradewinds offered everything from children activities, romantic dinners to late night fun, everyone enjoyed themselves! The staff were so courteous and attentive to all of the guests needs. Although there were multiple events going on the weekend and day of my wedding, I still felt as if I was the main event. My only recommendation to Tradewinds is investing into either purchasing a steamer or collaborating with a good dry cleaning/alterations/bridal shop for brides who may need to have their dress steamed.

I had a great experience at the Tradewinds, which is where we held our reception. The staff was very friendly and professional. The ballroom was beautiful & the food was delicious.

My only advice is to stay in touch with the group reservation manager if you will be having out of town guests staying at the resort. Many of my guests had a hard time with reservations & with getting an appropriate check- in time. My room was not even ready the day before the wedding prior to our rehearsal, which was a hassle.

The wedding planner that was assigned to me left the resort after helping me plan the wedding for a year! I never received notice of this...it wasn't until I called to review some last minute things with her that I found out she was no longer working for the resort. Luckily, Julie (the new coordinator) came to the rescue and things worked out fine.

I would highly recommend this venue :) Good Luck!
