Beware when booking Tradewinds!
We stayed at Tradewinds in December 2019, which was fine. However the booking for January 2020 (which I paid for in July 2019) was changed by ‘someone’ and we were put into an awful place (Whispering Coral) for 1 night then another place (Seachange) for 2 nights, without any consideration of what we wanted. Very unsatisfactory! In future I will not book & pay for any accommodation in advance!

My stay here was 12 days and I loved every day of it. Beautiful view. I had a room close to the entrance which was helpful as I am unable to walk a long distance. My apartment was clean and neat. Really enjoyed my stay here.

Problem solved
Tradewinds was actually overbooked due to a booking issues with hotels.com The owner Ian was fantastic at accommodating us anyway and found us another place to stay. Ian offers reasonable prices and lovely service. I would recommend staying at tradewinds or his other resort seachange
