- What's Included
OverviewThe welcome is warm. The smiles are friendly and the intimate atmosphere will make you feel right at home. Guy Harvey Outpost, a TradeWinds Beach Resort is the ideal vacation spot for friends and family.
Great hotel, outside space and gulf view is a must. Looks great with an adult only one too. Walk to the trade winds 5 mins to use all their facilities too. Weather and fishing fab this time of year. Great bonus of being able to walk to various eating and drinking venues. (Highly recommend snappers restaurant the fisherman's platter over the road!) Rooms large and clean. We had a suite with bed settee in the lounge and kitchenette with plenty of room. Wifi excellent could even get it on the beach. All of the hotel pristine and the staff friendly. Would deffo come back and recommend to anyone for a central location with the opportunity to walk to different venues and establishments the nearest thing you'll get to a British pub crawl in the states anyway!
We stayed 3 nights at the Guy Harvey and loved every minute of it! Things started out perfect right from the beginning when we met Diana at the front desk at check in! She was extremely pleasant and helpful checking us in and during our stay! The staff the amenities and the over all experience was amazing! Fun, friendly clean wonderful place to visit! Beautiful comfortable rooms! Thank you for making our stay a wonderful experience Diana and the rest of the Guy Harvey staff! The Demarais family
We went there for our anniversary, made reservations in advance and we got to sit right next to the large tank. It was amazing!! All of our food was great and do so was the service. Great atmosphere and the fish are beautiful. We especially enjoyed watching Frankie the yellow eel.
Should have trusted trip advisor about all the fees but went ahead and gave it a try .... was suppose to at least have a side gulf view higher up and when I went to check in and had a courtyard view ...really wanted the gulf front but would settle for the gulf view after all that's why we drove 16 hours to the ocean! She changed my room(another upgraded fee) after asking about it but now we were down by the loud toasted monkey bar at night ! I even got woke up to 5 cop cars down in the parking lot one early am!! Sade the front desk worker was nice and apologized for the call center getting our rooms mixed up and told us to come down after 4 to get a different room ... we went down there every night and yet she wasn't able to move us which was another disappointment so we had to stay put! The rooms are dated and small ...they have beds in the back and the living room by the ocean which meant we didn't get to have a bedroom ocean view either .... after settling in we walked down to the ocean... we noticed several layers of paint on the doors and railing on the way .... we saw a big truck dumping crushed up seashells and I guess it makes it easier for the atv to get down the beach but omg it hurts your feet ! We had to walk with flip flops in which made it hard in the sand ! I attached a pic I found but it is much worse in many places !! We decided to go to the sister property which is where most of the activities are… It is not next-door!!! There are actually two resorts in between Guy Harvey and Tradewinds! We had no idea where the activities were because we were never given an agenda print out when we checked in.... we were also not given wristbands ......So we walked along guessing.... we couldn't find the paddleboats and mini golf so walked back to the hotel!! A few days later my son wanted to do the s'mores he heard about and they were out very quick !! Many people were complaining to the worker but we just went on ...the pool at guy Harvey is very small and crowded! The other pools were way down at the sister hotel! The restrooms by the pool were very dirty!! The sandbar restaurant only serves a limited menu ... worker wasn't friendly and got upset when we asked for a side and left us empty on drinks ! Bartender was ok but drinks are high! Plus don't forget you pay $45 a night for a resort fee!! Also the sphere was an extra charge ...paddle board extra charge - front row Cabana extra charge ( which you have to rent yourself online the day before ) swimming in the tank extra charge -- (but was booked anyway so no need to even try to do that )so it can really add up! I was so glad we paid in full at the beginning and stayed on a cash basics!! Also timeshare people in the lobby will try to talk to you and call your room so beware!!! Upon checking out we went down to turn in the key and she said we had a balance ...What ??? A balance ?? I explained we paid in full and even more than it was at first and she said well here it is !! They wanted almost another $50 in fees which is what I have read about from other trip advisor reviews on here ... some people get charged up to $200 and they couldn't explain why ???? She tried to add it up on her calculator and couldn't get it !! She was pretty rude and said either I could pay the fees or she could get a manager and they would charge me MORE .... so she said she was doing me a favor !!! The line was growing behind me and my hub came back into see what was happening.... she ( blonde) lady told him the same thing thing and was very rude! He said he would just pay it ( like most do) and she still continued to argue .... I told her you have had my card and still arguing...can you just run it so we can go !! It was really unbelievable how we were treated!! I was upset most the day after we left ! When you go on vacation and spend $$$$ you expect much much better ! The best thing about this vacation was the weather... the palm trees and the ocean which we can get many other places!! :(
We stay at the Guy Harvey Outpost twice a year. Everyone is extremely friendly and helpful. The service is always prompt, professional and courteous. We enjoy the onsite dining at the RumFish and Guy’s Gulfside Grill. The food is high quality and the staff always remembers us from previous visits. The grounds are immaculate and well groomed. There is direct access to the beach which is one of the top rated in the world. The resort is close to other restaurants and grocery (Publix). We can’t find anything we don’t like. Looking forward to returning in March and receiving warm welcomes from Carman, (Concierge), Tina (Gulfside Grill) and Amber (Rumfish).
