Last month I went to the Tradewinds Resort on St. Pete beach for a few days. While I was there I met 2 of the nicest people I have ever met on my travels. A month later I am still thinking of them and that says a lot since I have been on 2 trips since then. Don’t get me wrong, I have met plenty of nice all over the world, but these 2 had a sparkle about them.
The first person I met was an older man Terry. He appeared to be a maintenance man or something along those lines. I met him when I was coming out of my room searching for coffee. He said Good Morning with a smile and asked if there way anything he could do. I asked him where I could find coffee and an ATM. He was so kind to walk me over to the lobby to the coffee shop. Seems like a pretty simple thing, but the nice conversation we had on our way is what made him unforgettable. I could tell he loved working at Tradewinds Resort. He explained all the different activities and restaurants they had. Told me about the pubs to visit at night.
A little while later I ran into Terry again when I was heading to the beach. He greeted me with a smile again and said let me show you where the spa is located and a few places to get a quick bite to eat. I was very thankful because I was actually ready for breakfast. He took me to Dominios and I grabbed breakfast and took it to the beach. He really went above and beyond making me feel at home at the Tradewinds Resort.
The second unforgetable person I had the pleasure of meeting was Audery. She was my amazing housekeeper. She had the biggest smile and vibrant personality. Not only did she keep my room clean, but she left us a bottle of wine, tons of sea shells and made us homemade jerk chicken. Hands down it was the best jerk chicken I have ever had. She her smile showed how much she loved her job. I saw her everyday during my stay at the Tradewinds Resort with the biggest smile and personality that made everyone smile.
If I am fortunate enough to stay at the Tradewinds Resort again, I am going to make sure I book a room in Audrey area. Hands down, she makes the best jerk chicken!! I have never bonded with a housekeeper at any other hotel before. Audrey has a contagious smile and it was a pleasure meeting her.
It is people them both that make guests want to book a return stay. I would love to take my son and husband for a family visit so he can meet them both. They both went on their way several times for me. I can honestly say they both love their her job and give it 110%. Tradewinds Resort is so lucky to have both of them.
