RumFish Beach Resort by TradeWinds

St Pete Beach, Tampa and Clearwater/St Pete

Virgin rating

The hotel

Laid-back vibes? Check. Powdery-white sands? Check. Fun for all the family? Check. Set on the beachfront, the RumFish Beach Resort is an epic place to enjoy St Pete’s beauty, recharge your batteries, and have the time of your life. You’ll love the cool beach lounge, complete with VIP cabanas, live entertainment, and a fire pit (get your s’mores at the ready!). There’s a whole load of fun and games at the sister hotel too, so you’ll be spoilt for choice with how to spend your days and evenings. And talking of evenings, head to one of the restaurants or bars and watch the sun go down over the rippling ocean.

TradeWinds was a great experience for my family vacation. I specifically want to recognize Patrick at Rumfish. He provided excellent service and recommends of things to do while at St. Pete, which was greatly appreciated. We will definitely return to TradeWinds for vacation.
