TradeWinds Island Resorts are two resorts, just steps away from one another on the white sands of St. Pete Beach, overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. With 14 dining and entertainment options, 7 pools, full service salon and spa, activities center for the kids and more, TradeWinds is the perfect location for a relaxing and fun getaway.
In November of 2010, TradeWinds Island Resorts was designated an Autism Friendly business by the Center for Autism and Related Disabilities (C.A.R.D.). TradeWinds employees underwent C.A.R.D.’s training program, which taught employees how to better meet the needs of guests who have autism and their families. Employees who have been through the training are easily identified by the puzzle piece pin on their nametags.
