Brought 4 friends with us for their first visit here and they all where amazed. The rooms are nice and clean, comfortable beds and the room size is good. Great Tiki hut bar and free entertainment every afternoon/evening. Restaurant on site and plenty of other restaurants within walking distance. This was our 4th visit and we will definitely return again... More

I visited this resort with my husband and sister-in-law the end of October- In particular Melody and her two supervisors- Shauna and Jen were some of the nicest and most considerate people I have ever met.

Fantastic place to stay. Staff is awesome and everything is super clean. Great tiki bar. Our flight was delayed and they let us stay an extra 3 hours at no charge. That is customer service! We will be back..

You can't go wrong with a hotel on the beach with a large pool and tiki bar ... bonus LIVE entertainment. We chose this hotel as friends were staying there and enjoyed so much, we extended our stay....and, will definitely return. Rooms are somewhat remodeled other than our bathroom that had vibrant 1960's tile on the retro walls....kind of fun!... More

This resort was just what I was looking for. Walk out my room to pool, tiki bar and beach. Staff was amazing. I wanted vintage and this is cool. I give it a bad rating because of the homeless people who hang there right on the entrance to beach. They were there for 3 days and nights (all night I... More

My first visit to Treasure island - and I took a wild guess to stay at the Thunderbird Beach Resort. It's an older hotel - 3 stories - which I LOVE... but it is packed full of personality. The room was nice - Not brand new - but it was great for a beach property. The rooms had hair dryers... More

My girlfriends and I stayed at Thunderbird 10/20 - 10/24 for a beach getway. The resort is well maintained, offers plenty of outdoor seating and the interaction with the staff was very friendly and they accomodated all our requests. For our first night, we dined at the Italian restaurant on property which by the way, was amazing and the bartender... More
