Guy Harvey Outpost a TradeWinds Beach Resort
- 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.
When I checked in, the staff was very nice. I asked for a quiet room away from the elevator as I always do. I was then told that I had been upgraded to a nicer room with King bed with gulf view. Sounded nice. The room was located next to the elevator and although it was a nice/spacious room, it hung over the pool and the pool entertainment was too close. My first night was okay-although I could hear loud furniture moving activities above me at 1 a.m. Last night, the singer played late and people were in the pool until 11 p.m. I called 4 times over the course of 2 hours to ask security and the front desk to see if the guests outside could be a little quieter than the constant screaming and loud laughing. Again, the staff was nice but I was not happy. I know that everyone was on vacation or conference, but it just was a lousy room for me and I should have gone with my gut feeling and continue to ask for a quieter section of the hotel. I just wanted to get some rest after a long conference day!!!
I have stayed at the Guy Harvey several times. The staff is friendly and helpful and we ADORE Shelly in the cafe by the pool. The breakfast burrito is delicious and we also always enjoy the poolside bar. The bartenders make great drinks there and are very responsive. The small gift shop is all you need if you need toothpaste, postcards, a swimshirt, etc.
I can’t say enough about Brenda at the kids konk club!! She is just amazing. Goes above and beyond and would come back just to see her, gives undivided attention to the kids she is working with and is happy to do her job! Shout out to Jenna and heather as well, we spent lots of time in the kids club 🤪
We arrived in the evening on 12/6 and stayed until 12/14. The front desk staff was very helpful (thanks Diana!) and provided an option for an upgraded room with a king bed and jetted tub. The room had a spectacular view of the gulf. We booked it and it was well worth the extra fee, especially to view the beautiful sunsets. While we did hear some music from the resort next door, it was not that loud and did not impact our enjoyment of our room.The resort was not crowded, so we had no issues with finding seating at the beach or pool. Michael Wilson took great care of us at the beach - quickly setting up the loungers with cushions and bringing us ice water to enjoy. The beach seating was very nice (extra cost as part of resort fee), with cushioned loungers and a canvas shade. The weather was a bit cool the week we booked, so we only used the beach seating a few times.The family pool by the gulf was closed most of the time that we were there for maintenance work. However, there was an adult pool that provided the chance to lay in the sun in comfortable temperatures, as the buildings around it blocked the breeze from the gulf. On Sunday afternoon, we had live music on the pool deck that was enjoyable.One complaint that we often have at resorts is that there aren't enough towels provided for the beach/pool areas - this was not the case this time as we had easy access to clean towels at both the beach and the pool. The property appeared clean and our room was clean with plenty of towels,We ate one night at the RumFish Grill restaurant on the property - spectacular fish tank took up one wall and there was also a corridor that provide a view of the tank near its bottom. We also dined at the Italian Grill in the Tradewinds resort, a short walk away. In both cases, we enjoyed very good meals. There are also many restaurants along Gulf Blvd if you want to venture out by car (we'd highly recommend Giggi's for a casual sit down Italian meal). The portions at Giggis were very large, so we took dessert back to the resort and enjoyed it later. It was nice that our room had utensils and dinnerware, as well as a microwave and refrigerator, and we appreciated the daily water bottles left for us. While we did not use the Tradewinds pools, we did walk around the resort, which was larger than Guy Harvey, but appeared more kid-oriented, which we did not need. The resort location is convenient to Busch Gardens as well as the Clearwater and Sarasota areas. Make sure you have quarters available for the nearby toll bridges which were no more than $1.50 but having coin made it easier to get through tolls.I'd recommend this resort. It was one of the better ones that we've stayed at, as you could do the week without a car, having access to Tradewinds, too.
Jake the bartender is the best!! He is friendly , attentive to shot requests. He shares his fun snd stories about life. Great personality!! Great atmosphere with good music! By far the best part of our vacation!
