The rooms in the suites on the north side of the hotel wouldn't get cool but they finally at least provided a little relief by giving us a fan. The staff did a great job of making us feel welcome. Dot was our housekeeper and she was amazing. Our room smelled great and was spotless each day. She was also...

They had a pool for the kids and was a 5 minute walk to the ocean. Whenever you needed something they would give it to you. They also had a restaurant in the hotel. It was close to everything so you could walk to get food or just go shopping. It was an amazing hotel!!!

My husband and I are both from Florida (he grew up in the Tampa Bay area) and our families have vacationed in the area for about 20 years. I feel duped by the reviews for the Thunderbird. There are a ton of better, cheaper places in the area if you're looking for a cheap beach getaway. We stayed here for...

This was our first time to this hotel and the area. We decided to go to the Thunderbird due to many good reviews. We stayed 3 nights in July. Loved the huge beach area and we enjoyed renting paddleboards right on the beach. We were within walking distance of many good restaurants. The live music was great at this hotel....

Another great trip, the staff are always so polite and helpful. The pool was as clean and refreshing as it has ever been. Music every night, weather permitting. Great little restaurants within walking distance. The housekeeping staff has always been good, but this year my wife and I had Michelle, she is absolutely wonderful. She asked our name(one time) and...
