First, don't let the photos fool you. There are no "separate little cottages" as shown on the website. All are duplex or triplex, so less private, and ours had no cute little porch, just a cement stoop. We had a lovely German couple sharing our duplex with an infant. Unfortunately, we could easily hear the child's cries. Interiors clean, but...

This was our first trip to the gulf side of Florida, and loved it. Tradewinds resort was just what we were looking for - quaint and laidback. Everyone was so friendly. Good restaurants are near -by and a beautiful sunset is just across the street. The staff is very helpful. We already reserved the same cottage for next year.

These picturesque cottages have flowers and greenery on and around them. Most of them face each other across a lane that runs from the gulf to the bay. It's very handy parking your car right next to the door of your cottage. It was cool when we were there, so we used the heat, which worked well. There is a...

The cottages at Tradewinds are clean, well-stocked, and convenient. There is a wonderful pool, a fishing pier, access to the Gulf and free trolleys, great restaurants and shopping within walking distance and a friendly, helpful staff. What more could you want? We have been coming here for years and have tried other places but none can beat this gem. Eileen...

Ok, so the cottages are not the most modern, but, they are very tidy, pleasant places. The resort is a private street between the ocean and the inland waterway. The staff are very friendly, knowledgable and willing to help in any way. There is an on site laundry which is free for residents (including the driers). Because its a private...

Have stayed here many, many years. The Tradewinds is "old Florida" to us. You won't find high rises anywhere on AMI. The island is amazing but this resort is in such a good location. We like walking (or you can take the free trolley) to historic Bridge Street for shopping, putt putt, breakfast on the bay at Rotten Ralphs, cocktails...

We love Anna Maria Island but were not familiar with this resort. We were very pleasantly surprised. The staff are the greatest asset: desk, housekeeping, grounds...they are all helpful and want your stay to be a pleasant one. The location is excellent, on a narrow section of the key, so that you are enjoying the beaches and the Intracoastal Waterway,...

We almost cancelled our recent trip due to flight problems but we were lucky and did make it to one of our favorite spots. We had stayed here before and came back again. I can't say enough good things about this hotel. It is clean, the people are friendly and the location is gorgeous.

This was our first stay at Tradewinds Beach Resort and it will not be our last. The pictures here and on their website don't do the place justice. It really is beautiful. Our one-bedroom unit was very nicely appointed and equipped. The unit and the entire grounds were very clean and I cannot say enough about the staff. We chose...
