You can read my many past reviews of The Winds. This visit was as perfect as all previous ones, that's why we keep returning year after year. The breakfast are always great, the breakfast room staff of Jody & Lorna are always happy, pleasant and glad to see us, plenty of parking, beautiful sunsets, etc.

Our room was great, staff was wonderful, great food and very comfortable beds. We choose the ground floor and had a garden room suite, very satisfied. The service, staff and all involved making sure you were happy with your accommodations was endless. This will be our choice of a place to stay and we do plan on going back.

Pros: Free breakfast (coffee was good too), free wifi, nice housekeeping staff, nice location (steps away from the beach), nice landscaping (palms, cactuses, flowers). Cons: Pic of Magnolia double suite interior is misleading; shows a different room. Our room didn't have 2 sofas, area rug, etc & didn't have the same flow as the pic. Parts of the suite were...

If you know going in that this is an older property, then you won't be disappointed at some of the "rough edges." First, the pluses--the staff is very nice and very helpful, and they serve a darn good breakfast. (Just bring your own coffee cream.) The rates aren't bad either, considering you're right on the beach. The room, while not...
