“WONDERFUL and relaxing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

We stayed here for four days and thoroughly enjoyed our time. While there was plenty to do, we spent most of our time in our room, on the patio or poolside allowing for some much needed relaxation.

We had an efficiency which was perfect for our family to be able to cook when we wanted to. The restaurant on site had a fabulous lunch, which we enjoyed multiple days.

The hotel arranges for live music by their tiki bar daily. We appreciated the variety of entertainment. While we had our favorite, none of them were bad.

The kids LOVED the pool and the easy access from our room. We were always supplied with fresh towels for our room and the pool.

While parking is limited, it was an improvement since our previous visit as they have purchased the hotel to the north as well. The hotel works hard to manage the parking lot passes efficiently so there are enough spaces for everyone.

We are very much looking forward to our next stay here!

Another blissful week spent at my favorite vacation spot! The Thunderbird Hotel has everything I want in a Florida vacation: economical, beautiful pool, right on the beach, tropical landscapes, well maintained rooms, friendly staff, restaurant, Tiki bar, live music nightly, and excellent service! I will be back. Also a nice perk is their new TV channel which allows you to see a live shot from the pool in your room! I love this place!

Room Tip: Love the poolside rooms on the bottom floor!

Myself, husband & 5 year old daughter spent two nights here in april & we loved it. The staff were so nice! The rooms are a bit dated but clean! The beds were so comfortable. We had a great time at the pool area and spent a day on the beach. The only thing is, I prefer Clearwater's beach to Treasue Islands. If I could've lifted this great wee hotel to Clearwater I would've!. That didn't stop us having a fantastic time & I wish we could've stayed longer.

We stayed the Memorial Day Weekend and hope to return next year. We had an efficiency and cooked out of the room the majority of the weekend. Great way to save money! We have 2 older children and 1 younger child and they found plenty to do. There was a huge festival on the beach with music and dancing which entertained the older kids and the pool more than kept our younger one busy. The facilities were beautifully maintained by Mr. Bill and he answered many of our questions coming to our assistance as we were up early in the morning drinking coffee poolside. He and his staff were helpful when we needed a hammer for our beach umbrella. They also helped when we had questions regarding the TV channels which wasn't even his area of responsibility. The housekeeping staff was outstanding also. Janita and Tiffany took such good care of our room and made sure we had everything we needed. Both Mr. Bill's staff and the housekeeping crew were very friendly and seemed very happy to be working at the hotel. The only thing that could have made the stay better was if the hotel was able to get ESPN. My husband and sons wanted to see the NBA playoffs and the game was televised on ESPN that night. The hotel did not get ESPN, only ESPN2. They had to go off-site to a sports bar to see the game. A little disappointing...most hotels offer ESPN. Other than that, it was an extremely relaxing, fun family vacation.

Room Tip: Poolside rooms on the east side (farther from the beach) are quieter because they are also farther f...

We stayed a week with 3 adults and 2 children. The kids loved the pool and the beach but played more at the larger pool. We got the efficency suite and it was fine for us. The rooms were clean and the staff were nice to deal with. Had a problem with the plumbing and within 10 minutes there was someone there to fix it. Next time we go we will get a room right on the beach @ the Thunderbird. We will def. stay there again. The only problem I can say is we did have a parking issue on the weekend. They really should have each parking space numbered for a room. Otherewise, we enjoyed our stay here and you can't get a better beach and the hotel I think is well maintained. Plenty of grocery and walgreens and food places right there you don't have to drive. .

Room Tip: pay a little more for gulf view. we will next time as it will be worth it the view is awsome....

We stayed at the thunderbird in a room overlooking the beach and experienced the wonderful sunsets. The room was big clean and beds were very comfortable. We only had a slight problem with a leak in the ceiling on the last day, and a toilet flushing problem however these were quickly sorted whilst we sat around the lovely pool area, and we were reimbursed with a round of drinks for the trouble!
There were a few very nice eating places nearby, including sloppy joes, the sports bar where I was able to watch the premier league football.
The tiki bar at the pool was great, and had singers each afternoon and into the early evening. Go there and chill !!

We will return!

Room Tip: Without doubt go for an ocean front room with balcony for the sunsets! Very reasonable rates

We enjoyed our stay this past weekend. Although when we got there, the second pool was closed and being filled, so our pool ended up a bit more crowded. Luckily our poolside room was on the working pool. One customer was very irate since she had a poolside and it was closed, they didn't seem to offer anything to make up for it. The beach is a quite a walk to the water. The parking is very dangerous and very limited. One area you had to back out all the way out to park and leave. We had to find a place to park our second car, no one mentioned we were only allowed one vehicle. The rooms were not too sound proof, you could hear your neighbors, and one group stood outside talking until 1AM. When we asked for late check out some young man, just said no, instead of politely saying, sorry we can't allow it due to cleaning rooms, etc. This is the first place I ever stayed where late check out, 1 hour mind you, was an issue. Still love my Hampton Inns, so accommodating. We might return. V & N
