                      Location...Location...Location...The facility is as nice as when we last stayed there over 15 years ago.

                      The resort fee is excessive @ $25.00 per night and it also gets taxed separately. I feel the rates this hotel charges should cover all that they offer. Upon check-in we upgraded to a ocean view room and was advised of $25.00 night charge, but not told that these charges would also be taxed separately. In the end this brought our total bill over $400.00 for a 2 nite stay.

                      Had to wait almost an hour to check in on Saturday. The front desk wasn't staffed well enough to handle the customers. Asked three times for a manager, and no management came to assist the staff. With that, I was late to a wedding.

                      Too expensive, too noisy and busy

                      The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Lots of activities for the kids.

                      I did not like paying the extra $25 amenity fee and it not include the waterslide or water park activities. We were not informed that we would be charged extra to keep our car overnight in valet. We had to wait close to an hour for our food at Bermudas.

                      The location on the beach was great!

                      Staff were not attentive to guests even though occupancy was low.

                      I liked the cleanliness and the efficient staff

                      Too long of lines for towels and cabanas on beach. 2 things we used the most!!!! tiki drinks too expensive

                      It was very family friendly. I did feel it is more gears towards younger children.

                      We had a magical family experience at this hotel, everything is to hand with plenty to please the whole family. We found our stay to be very relaxing. If I had one bad word I wouldn't recommend the Palm court restaurant at the hotel however the Bermuda restaurant was good.

                      The Palm Court restaurant had bad service and over priced!

                      The resort has the most amenities on the beach of all the other hotels/resorts that we have stayed at on St Pete Beach. Nice ocean waterpark, & big waterslide on the beach. We enjoyed the tennis courts & the bungee trampoline was fun for the kids. The on site dining was convenient and the food was very good. Pizza hut express & the ice cream shop were nice for a snack in the afternoon without having to leave the resort The included cabana was good except be prepared to stand in line on the beach every morning at 8am for at least an hour or more to get one.

                      Although it has alot to offer as far as things to do for the kids, most of the amenities were a big expense in addition to the room.The room was also small for the price. I could have booked a much larger room down the beach with a full kitchen for less but chose the Tradewinds for the amenities. The waterpark is very nice but at $16.00 per child per hour for guests of the resort it was much too expensive for the kids to go more than once per day if you're traveling with more than 1 child like we were. The bungee trampoline is $8.00 for a 10 min turn & one time down the beach slide is $4.00. Tennis racquets & court time were free but it was $5.00 for tennis balls! They should offer resort guests a better price & a full day wristband for amenities! Would think twice before staying there again due to high cost of kids amenities. Nice place to stay if you plan on spending alot once you're there.

                      Location is great, rooms were nice.

                      Since I did not take advantage of many of the facilities the price was more than expected. Also would prefer a more adult facility.

                      The location was wonderful! We stayed in the Queen Room / Gulf room and was good.

                      Configuration of room was just ok. Would like the vanity to be outside the bathroom for privacy
