Very nice place to stay. Walking distance to many great restaurants, including the one on the property, Great Tiki Hut with afternoon entertainment and drinks. Nice pool and Jacuzzi. Huge beach! My only complaint is the WiFi is slow. Streaming isn't really an option, but then again, I wasn't really there to watch TV!

After a slight delay in check in I found the staff very accommodating and friendly! Plenty of staff around to answer questions and the pool was great! Room was clean and we loved our private balcony to enjoy the sunsets! Will be staying here again!

dirty pool, sticking door and shower faucet, slow drains, dirty walkways and glass doors, scratchy sheets. Nothing like years past. We will never go back.

Hello, I am sorry that you experienced some difficulties with our property and your room. I hope that you informed the front desk about the problems with the room and the pool so that we had an opportunity to address them. We did not meet your expectations and succeed like we have previously. I am sorry that we have lost your business, but if you reconsider, you always have a place at the Thunderbird Beach Resort. Sincerely, James Jeffrey, Guest Services Thunderbird Beach Resort

Very clean, great view. Allowed early check in. Only allow one parking permit per room. They do provide overflow parking options.

Hello, Thank you so much for your review on your stay with us. I am glad that you enjoyed your room and the view from it. I am glad that we were able to get you checked in early. I just want to clarify that early check in is subject to availability and not guaranteed. Our standard check in time is after 4 and if you arrive earlier it does not necessarily mean that you will get checked in before 4, although we will try. I also wanted to clarify that we do not have officially designated overflow parking for guests that bring more than one vehicle. We will show you where there are a few parking options available, but those options are available at your own risk. Sincerely, James Jeffrey, Guest Services Thunderbird Beach Resort

Property is conveniently located and sleeps 6 people. Rooms were clean but very small. Updates were obvious but purely cosmetic. Door frames were rusted away. Showers didn't function well. Zero sound deadening as we could hear people walking by talking like they were sitting in the room. The pull out bed needs replacing very badly. There was no cushion to it at all. The springs were extremely uncomfortable. We got very little sleep. We had looked forward to staying here but were disappointed

Hello Elizabeth, I am sorry that you were not satisfied with your stay at the Thunderbird Beach Resort. We are an older property and while we do our best to keep the rooms and amenities updated, we will not be able to compete with new properties. Some guests appreciate the preservation of a classic style of property and some do not. I have placed the beds on the room you stayed in, on our quality assurance list to check and replace. If you decide to give us another chance in the future, I hope that we can provide a better experience for you. Sincerely, James Jeffrey, Guest Services Thunderbird Beach Resort

Hello S, I am sorry that we did not meet your expectations on this stay. I am glad that you liked the property, pool area, and the atmosphere. I am sorry that your room did not make a good first impression with the smell. It was very rainy this weekend and we had a lot of storms so I am sure that contributed to the problem. Was the front desk notified of your dissatisfaction with the room. Sometimes we may not be able to offer the same exact room type if it is sold out, but I am sure that we could have come to a desirable result for you. I am sorry that we were not able to make you happy on this stay. I hope that you give us another chance to have a better stay on your next visit. Sincerely, James Jeffrey, Guest Services Thunderbird Beach Resort

Had a hard time checking in. They checked me in when I was not there. The food we ordered they forgot us twice and it took over an hour and a half. The bathroom door was so warped it was peeling back from the actual door. The beds were very uncomfortable. And we had to wait 30 mins to park and we were only allowed one parking spot per room.

Hello AdSmith, I am so sorry that you were not satisfied with your stay with us. I am not sure what happened at your check in that you were checked in when you were not present. This is not a typical occurrence. The restaurant is a separate business and not under our management, but I have forwarded your comments to their management. I am sorry that you had trouble parking, but we do not charge for parking like most hotels on the beach and it is not guaranteed which is why we do not charge. Sincerely, James Jeffrey, Guest Services Thunderbird Beach Resort
