“4 years we've stayed @ the bird. keeps getting better!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

From the flat screen TV's, the bedsheet linens, to new access door security locks, plus the little bath and kitchenette supplies and gratuities, made our recent stay a welcoming experience. Of course we can never forget the hustle and bustle of the housekeeping service and their staff. Never have we ever witnessed such enthusiasm and pride in guest service. Above all, we see our friends and other guests returning year after year to the gardens, the pool, the tiki hut and social impact of your resort. Thanks again to the desk staff inclusive of Melissa, and our keeper
Jania.

Room Tip: 1st floor rooms appear most readly accessable. 2nd floor have better view.

The Thunderbird Hotel is the best on Treasure Island. The service is great, the management is great, the food is great, the atmosphere is great! We really enjoy the proximity to beach and anything else you need or want is close by! We highly recommend this spot for your next vacation!

my sister and my 2 daughters arrived on 3/10/13. was just for l night. We usually stay at Tradewinds but we chose Thunderbird instead.... best thing we every did..... The Thunderbird is excellent, grounds are beautiful, staff, professional, friendly, and courteous....loved the little bistro which we did eat in....was good too....the place is immaculate inside and out.. next yr. we plan to come for a longer stay..... the only thing is that the beach water was so far away. I did walk it because I was deterined to put my feet in the water..... would be nice if you had a little golf car to transport seniors to waterfront....we do like the water.... Hopeful to see you next yr. the javidi party we booked a room pool side...

Room Tip: book pool side and you will not be disappointed

We stay at the Thunderbird every year - same time, same room - and it always feels like "coming home"! And we love "home"! The staff is warm, friendly and efficient - from Linda, Dawn, James, and Luis (and the rest of the gang) at the front desk to Cathy - our housekeeper who always notes we we leave to go on our morning beach walk, and cleans our room while we are away. When we return, it looks so fresh and neat - as if we were checking in all over again!

In addition, the location, right on the Gulf, with it's own Tiki bar and live music most nights to welcome the sutset, makes it a wonderful vacation getaway. We always stay in the Suites - a relatively new addition for The Thunderbird - and our room features a living room with small kitchenette, and a separate bedroom for privacy. This extra space and full living area, makes it feel quite homey....great for extended snow bird stays too!

We are locals from Tampa, have stayed at most of the beach hotels. The absolute worst service ever received. Room was not ready on arrival, ride staff, no towels, completely horrible experience. I highly recommend many nicer hotels in the area, Bilmar etc. Do not spend your money on a complete dump with rude staff, when there are plenty of wonderful hotels in the area.

Location is incredible. The Gulf on one side and walking distance to everthing you could ever need on the other. What makes the Tbird so unique is its staff; Missy, Luis, James and KK make you feel welcome as soon as you enter the door. Alma, our housekeeper, has our room clean and comfortable--and she always has a smile. Bill is groundsman extraordinaire--he keeps grounds/pool/hottub in perfect condition. Ben is a new addition to the staff--he was everywhere--a true "Jack of all trades." This wonderful. capable staff reflect the owner-David. He is usually on the premises overseeing the place and meeting/greeting guests. He has a Happy Hour every Wednesday evening so you can mingle with the other guests, adding to the feeling of community.
