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.
This hotel reminds me of something that was refurbished, trying to make it something it is not. Yes, it has amenities, but they list what each amenities would cost you elsewhere, and that is a jo=ke! Like 2 bottles of water $7/day, internet $10/day, parking $25/day. I just stayed at Disney, and they didn't remind me of what things costs. Next door at the Alden, I have stayed and got all these included for free. There said we could sign up for first row cabanas once we go on the property. Come to find out there is a $15 charge. We had no balcony, just a sliding glass door that opened up to the gulf, and the AC would cut off if you opened the door. This place was a joke. It did not have nice pools, just something you would put in your own back yard. The elevator would only fit 4-5 people at max and was slow. The amenities that I paid for in my package, we couldn't use because every time we went to sign up for them, they were already taken for that day ( and we tried each day around noon). The kids club cost money, and the kitchenette had no dishwasher. the dishes smelt like fish from handwashing them. Maintenance never fixed two of our issues and came for the third one. This was a nightmare for my family.
This was the first time visiting St. Petersburg. Everyone at the resort was nice and I did not have any bad encounters. That was a plus. I really don't like rude or unfriendly people. My room was better than I thought it would be. It was a balcony, facing a courtyard. I got very lucky and from my room, I could see the beach and ocean. What I didn't like was the $40 something resort fee. This was per person and per night. The only extra I used was the lounge chairs, with the cabana on the beach. The resort fee was extra I had to pay for nothing. The drinks are $10, for smaller size cup. They did use good liquors though. BYOB for when you are on beach or hanging out. You will save a little money. On the website, it showed you can order drinks while your on beach. That is not necessarily true. I asked and was told that they just started doing it and still working it out. I liked the decor in the rooms and halls on first floor. I really enjoyed the live music at a bar at both The Guy Harvey Outpost and Tradewinds Grand.
Josh at the Sand Bar was AMAZING!!! So friendly & personable. Made us feel right at home & MADE our trip!! Best bartender of our whole trip!!! We spent a few hours at the bar & every visit from Josh made us feel like we were family!
First, I want to say the entire staff was friendly, professional, personable, & helpful....always smiling!!! A specific shout out to Alryck H. King who was super quick & helpful, reporting to our room within a couple minutes of our call request. He was efficient in accomodating ALL of our requests promptly, & was very sweet to take the timw when my 2 year old granddaughter wanted to exchange pleasantries. My husband & I came here last year & couldn't wait to return with the whole family this year. It's already a hit with the whole family!!!!
We stayed here because we wanted to be close to Tropicana Field and on the beach. The room wasn't ready when we got there but we were still allowed to use all of the facilities. The room was clean and had all we needed. The pool is small but it never seemed over crowded. The beach was gorgeous and it was nice to have free chairs with shade. The other Tradewinds property had more things to do but was only "200 flip flops" away. There are multiple places for food and drinks and everything we had was delicious. We are looking forward to coming back to spend more time.
