“Loved our vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2009

After several days of reading reviews we settled on the Thunderbird Resort. The staff was great , helped us with everything we needed they were friendly and went above and beyond. The location was great for us we walked to the orginal pizza , VIP mexican food, McDonalds and Waffle House. We ate breakfast on the patio everyday. The pool was great and our kids loved it. The courtyard to the beach was great if you didnt want tho walk to the water ( it was alittle hike to the water) The tiki bar made all types of drinks. We thought the rooms were clean( beds were alittle soft for our bad backs ) We are already planning our next trip there. It is a very family friendly atmoshphere and teh hotel next door is owned by the same so we did our laundry before comming home $1.50 to wash/dry each. id you go visit Tarpon Springs Greek communityour 11 and 16 year old loved the sponge docks

Not realizing the check in time we arrived four hours early. But the customer service rep at the front desk was kind enough to let us leave our bags with her and took my cell number to call us if she could get us in a little early. So We strolled around the area and in about an hour we were called saying we could check in. The
rooms are cozy ,very clean. The staff was
Incredible, smiles and hellos every time they passed. The pool Is right in the center and big enough for your comfort, incase it isn't, the beach is right off the pool side. Check out was at 11am and we had to wait for a family member to pick us up around 3, again the nice customer rep held our bags the entire time we waited for our ride and even let us stay in the room an extra hour. It was very quiet here though. Maybe because we stood from Monday thru Thursday. So we had to travel about a mile to a bar that was reccomended by a worker at one of the waverunner rental places. She was even there when we actually went. Over all a nice place not much of a nightlife unless u come on the weekend from what I was told.

I suggested last year to my friends to stay @ the Thunderbird Beach Resort in TI. My family has stayed there for 25 + yrs.We just got home June 8th 2009 from another memorable vacation here.Janet manages an incredible staff and a clean establishment. We had a group of seven from Wisconsin and Oklahoma and we had the best time around the pool and beach.Our 3 rooms were very clean and housekeeping was available for all our needs. We will be back as a group as well as my family's vacations this year.

This hotel is well kept for being an older hotel.
Pros: The cost- it was a bit cheaper than staying in Clearwater. It was very clean on the inside. Well kept. The housekeeping staff and front desk person was very nice and pleasant.
Cons: The biggest thing we didn't like about this hotel was the distance to the beach/water. We didn't realize it was so far to the actual water. I would prefer to stay closer to the water. The light in the bathroom didn't work most of the time. I did report this when we checked out and they said they would get it fixed. There was also very visable mold on the chair sitting on the outside balcony. We had a "ocean front" room but d/t the distance to the ocean we couldn't even hear it or even get a breeze from it. The other rooms were not private balconies.
We decided to only stay one night d/t the cons of this hotel to our family.
Overall this was an ok hotel to stay in. Basically you get what you pay for.

We had a mini-family "surprise" reunion and the hotel had everything arranged perfectly.
The staff works harder than any name brand hotel. Thanks to Jared for busting his butt and Barbara for saving hard to get weekend parking spaces and suggesting a great off the tourist path restaurant which had to be one of the best meals I have had anywhere!
Thanks again to the Thunberbird and their staff for a PERFECT WEEKEND!

We always enjoy staying at the Thunderbird when we are in the area. The rooms open right up to the pool and hot tub. There is also a tiki bar there that is a lot fun to hang out with the locals. Live music adds to the island feel. There is a resturant there that is very good but there are plenty of options within walking distance if you prefer something different.
