We spend five days at the hotel for spring-break. Had a pool side room on the first floor. I was super happy about the whole hotel stay. From the people at the check in to the rooms. It is a very small hotel and not super luxurious. But it is clean and has everything a family of 4 needs. Would...

It would be very easy to tear this "resort" apart but I will do my best to be fair. We knew the resort was old but that didn't bother us as long as it was clean and in good condition. We booked a room with a kitchenette and a balcony. We were given a first floor with no balcony. The...

3 of us took a girls trip and had an amazing view from a 3rd floor room. Low key and casual, this resort was perfect for our trip. We ate brunch on site and next door at the beach bar and everything you need is walking distance.

Pros: Very comfy bed, good beach access (200 yards behind motel); spacious room; check-in desk dude was quite polite and welcoming. He was also very patient and professional with the guests who were calling him during our check-in, one of whom was clearly angry about a situation with the ice machine. Cons: Inflexible and poor customer service (see below), which...

We visited this hotel for one night. We booked a pool view which turned out to be mostly of a car park on a busy main road and the pool was the hotels "second pool" which was basically a small uninhabited pool similar to what you would see in 1960/1979's movies set in motels. No life or holiday vibe Around...

I recently spent 8 days at the Thunderbird Beach Resort. I haven't been for many years, and I was happy to see that the owners have kept the nostalgic feel of the hotel, along with adding updates and enhancements. If you want an ultra modern hotel, this is not for you, even though they have added a new section with...

Hotel is right in the middle of all the action- many good restaurants, shopping, a decent walk to John's Pass, huge beach. Wifi didn't work that well. Good restaurant and nice happy hour on Wed. Afternoon. Cute Tiki bar and live music every afternoon/evening!

Read reviews and looked at all the photos before booking like everyone else I'm sure... The Thunderbird was great for a week stay or just a weekend getaway. Right on the beach, plenty of stores and restaurants around. Next time we go we will bring the whole family!

My husband surprised me with a 2 night getaway here and I couldn't have been happier. The suite had beach decor and I adored it! The tiki bar was perfect for having a drink and sitting by the beach! We took a walk on the beach about 8am and saw 5 dolphins swimming not far from shore. What an awesome...

Clean, modern updates, well managed. I was impressed that they seemed to double check the rooms each day to make sure all was well. Great access to beach and nearby John's Pass with lots to do. Kudos to the cleaning staff. We will go back.
