FIrst time in this area of Florida (usuallly go to the panhandle(PCB). We had a gulf efficiency and it was much tinier the we are used to when farher North. The "kitchen" has a two burner stove and full oven. the fridge is a small one. Really no room to move around in there. I liked the beds, VERY comfortable. The room was clean, although at times it seemd infested by ants. Liked the gulf view balcony. Beach is nice, but way too far from the resort to the actual water (at least for old guys like me). Loved the Cabanas on the beach though. Grouper's restaurant had good food and polite staff. The staff of Thunderbird itself from the manager to the housekeepers all VERY friendly and helpful. One of the best hotel staffs I have ever encountered. Pool area and TIKI bar really nice. Hot tub way too small. Loved the nightly entertainment in the TIKI area. Great location for getting anywhere else in the Tampa/St Pete area. I will probably stay somewhere else next time, but only because I am 6'4" and 250 lbs and this big boy needs more room in the room, if you know what I mean. Plus, it is just too far across the beach to the water. Price is good in comparison with other resorts in the area. Overall, not bad.
