My son has to get around on a mobility scooter and the trail allowed him to "stroll" the beach. The staff was exceptional and the rooms not fancy, but clean, which is of higher priority to...

The cleaning staff was excellent and very nice. Thank you Janice,Sade,Kathy,Rita and Briana for the excellent experience. They made sure we had everything we needed and cleaned our room to perfection. They are definitely the best cleaning staff I've experienced. I'm definitely recommending to all my friends and family to stay at the Thunderbird hotel.
