The fittings in the shower were hanging off the wall. We had to jam a towel behind the shower head to make... More

Tradewinds resort was a great place to stay when on placement at the hospital, it was a 2 minute walk to the hospital, and only a quick 10 minute walk to town.

We were introduced to this resort by some friends we were traveling with who had stayed here before. We were really happy with the way the room was set up and Valerie is fabulous. Nothing seemed too much trouble. The resort is well located "in the suburbs" so it's quiet and has great views out to the lagoon. There are... More
