Awesome experience. Great room, great view, terrific customer service. Even though it was spring break season, didn't feel packed in anywhere on the resort. Beach, pool, nightly entertainment. All great fun.

I am so glad that you stayed with us during your recent visit to Treasure Island! We take great pride in our customer service. It is really easy when we have such nice visitors staying with us.

Laid back 50s style hotel resort. Everyone has fun here. Live music and tiki bar. The smoking near the pool was only complaint. Get a room away from the pool if you can. It's about 500 yes to the waters edge

First time at this resort and already booked for next year. Has everything you need or want, clean refurbished suites, comfortable beds, tiki bar and the most delicious Italian restaurant. Our maid Janice and supervisor Shawn always went the extra mile each day. The management team of Missi and Louis are top notch and the main reason for going back.
