Great 4 day weekend at the Thunderbird. They had a kitefestival going on during our stay. Everything was great from front desk staff to rooms and Tike Bar was fun. Can't wait to our next visit. Special thanks to Missy who made sure everything was what we wanted.

We stayed here for a family vacation. I would not recommend this resort to anyone. Puke was all over the backside of our bedroom door. The smell was horrible! Customer Service was very poor! The pool was not very clean. We left the resort went to Clear Water!

My aunt, mom and I stayed at The Thunderbird the week between Christmas and New Year 2016. After experiencing more than our fair share of loss in the past year and a half, we decided we needed a break and some sunshine. The Thunderbird was exactly the right place to be. I booked this hotel specifically for the retro feel....

We booked the hotel based on price, location and reviews, many of which were not the best, but as a seasoned traveller that's been to some of the best and worst hotels in the world, I know that (a) reviews are only reliable if you know the demographic of those who've stayed, and (b) you get what you pay for....

This is a completely wonderful resort. It is "old style" Florida before the days of mega resorts and high rises. Our room was well appointed and clean. We had an awesome view of a beautiful beach. Now, it is a WIDE beach but you cannot get closer to the beach than this resort. We enjoyed the sauna (hot tub) each...

ver friendly staff, great family fun, and wonderfully warm weather made it a great week. Evilin and Javi (front desk) are terrific. Very knowledgeable of local attractions and always looking to share. We will stay again.

This place is an oldie but a goodie!!! I am a local from Pinellas County. If you want to meet someone for a drink and go for a long walk on the beach you couldn't do much better than this place. I did not eat at the restaurant( that delivers to the tiki bar) but was told the Italian food...

Thank you for your kind words about the Tiki Bar. It is very popular with locals and visitors alike. There are certainly fancier places around, but the atmosphere and the sunsets that are available at our Tiki Bar are among the best in Treasure Island. Keep coming back and become a regular. Susan
