      • Family with children

        It is a wonderful place, romantic, well planned space. Every thing was great, including the amazing varyet ot fruit in the breakfast.

        I did not like much was the mattress, it was kind of too soft,

        The balcony, view and fireplace in our room (we upgraded to the most expensive room). Comfortable bed. Good lighting.

        Expensive. Poor breakfast.

        • Average rating
      • Older travelers

        The style of the hotel, its warm and kind service and wonderful location

        I think being such a good place, breakfast could be a bit more sophisticated.

        Tranquil oriental theme with mini water feature in room and gas log burner. Location in Carmel. Friendly helpful staff. Continental breakfast included.

        Hotel tired and dated. Room size - too small and as travelling we had lots of luggage. Noise from other rooms. We could hear people walking and talking above us and their tv, shower etc. Floor boards above creaked. No pool or spa facilities. Limited parking. Overall we were disappointed with this hotel and felt that the price of $300+ per night was not value for money.

        I was promised an ocean view I didnt get one. I was on the ground floor. There is not insulation between floors I was awoken at 1 am and 230 am by the upstairs room occupants. There was no operator to call at the front desk. I will never book with you again.

        Welcoming, beautifully decorated, quiet, spotless and comfortable

        Honestly, I can't think of anything I did not like.

        Wonderful Asian decor with special touches like chocolate dipped strawberries upon arrival. Luxurious soft kimonos and water feature in the room that shuts off automatically when the lights go out. Breakfast included and they had soy milk which was a bonus for me, being lactose intolerant!

        There is no air conditioning in the hotels in Carmel since they just open the windows to let the cooler evening air in.

        Very nice staff, beautiful facility and convenient to everything.

        The mattress was very uncomfortable.

        • Average rating
      • Couple

        The staff were helpful and gracious.

        Tradewinds is essentially a converted motel, refurbished with cheaply constructed Asian themed decorations similar to the type that you might find at Pier One Imports or Cost Plus. There is also no consistent Asian theme, it's just a mish mash of "anything that looks vaguely Asian." So in any single room you might have some mix of Thai, Indonesian and Chinese furnishings. It makes you feel as if you've wandered into some salvaged Tiki bar from the 1970s. At $250+ per room, it's way overpriced.

        Our stay was wonderful. The staff is very responsive and so positive!

        Internet was not very good.

      • Couple

        Every member of the staff was wonderful, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and the design was peaceful and relaxing.

        There is no jacuzzi, and it could really use one.

        The bathrobes, the bathroom and layout of the room

        Old TV and uncomfortable chairs in the room.
