Tradewinds Paradise Villas? - 06/12/01 03:56 PM

Hey guys,
My wife and I are going to AC in July '01,
We are staying at the Tradewinds Paradise Villas. Does anyone have any comments on these Accomadations? They said it was nice with a beach bar close? Should we know anything else about our trip to ensure we are comfortable? Rain in July? Any comments are welcomed. We really look forward to our trip, and the beauty of AC. Thanks

Hey Treybo,

My husband and I stayed there in March and very much liked it. Has a living/dining room area with kitchen (granted, not once in 10 days did we use the kitchen for anything but making drinks and keeping belikins in the fridge), bedroom has air conditioning unit and we only used it once for a short period one evening. There was always a nice breeze if you kept your windows open and curtains pulled back. There pool is very nice, used it on quite a few occasions. There is a grounds keeper there during the evening hours which is nice and a little dog named sweet pea that lives nearby but always seemed to be there. She knows who stays there and if you don't she barks at ya. There is the Paradise Resort right next door and they have a palapa right on the beach, quite handy! All in all I don't think you could go wrong staying there. We wouldn't think twice about staying there again on a return trip. Although it is the same resort, I didn't go through Tradewinds. I went through Susangg who used to comment on this board back then and she has a couple units that if you go to the lodging page on this sight, it is called just "Paradise Villas". So enjoy your visit and let us know about it when you return.

Hi Sunkissed! We will be staying at the Tradewinds in just a few days. Never been to A.C. before. What is the beach like @ Tradewinds?

The beach eh? Well, the first thing I should say is, you don't go to Belize for the Beach. I mean don't get me wrong, they are okay but by no means would I say marvelous or fantastic (now Maui has a fantastic beach) I learned about this before we went and I'm very happy I did because I love to lay out on the beach and if I had been expecting more of the beach I would have been disapointed. I also missed the fact that the snorkeling from the beach wasn't great either. But let me say, paying $20 for someone to take me out to the reef was absolutely more than worth it. March was our first trip to A.C. and even though the the beach wasn't perfect, everything else was great and we defintely will be going back. I had a trip report called "Paradise Withdrawls" you could do a search if you like. But by no means worry about it, you will have a "fantistic" time.
