I arrived at the thunderbird resort on 2/18/22 as a bride to be and left married on 2/22/22. They provide a fantastic meeting room for our reception at no additional fee! I couldn’t be happier with our experience. Thanks again Donna hotel manager.

Thank you for staying at the Thunderbird Beach Resort. Our beachfront location is second to none! We have started the process to fully renovate our restaurant and are looking forward to re-opening in the upcoming months.

If you stay here, and want a peaceful stay, be sure you ask for a room on the top floor far away from the main pool and bar. We were on the first floor (Gulf front) and it was extremely noisy up until the pool close at 11 PM.

I read the reviews for this hotel and thought it would be a great place to stay. I don’t think the people leaving the 5 star reviews have ever stayed in a nice hotel. We were excited to be close to the beach with a beach front room. Lots of things within walking distance. We checked in and at first we thought everything was fine. The first problem we had was finding out there was no housekeeping service during our stay. I’m not sure if that was due to covid or what the reason was. We ended up with sand every where including our beds, a mountain of towels and garbage. We did get rid of a few bags of garbage when we saw housekeeping cleaning another room. We had to go to the desk everytime we needed towels. The bathroom is old and out dated. There were tiny bugs crawling everywhere. We could hear the neighbors loud and clear. I assume the door with no knob and just a lock was the doorway to their kitchen. You could hear everything. The upstairs noise was loud too. We decided to suck it up and stay in the hotel knowing it was just a place to sleep. When we did go to sleep we had to put a chair in front of the door because there was no deadbolt. Our room led right to the parking lot. There also wasn’t a board to put in front of the sliding door. I think the only thing nice about the hotel is the location.

Please disregard all of the negative comments of this property. I almost changed hotels because of this. Thank God I did not. The Thunderbird is awesome. Right outside of our door was a balcony that overlooks the Gulf. Tiki bar and pool area were awesome. Pool was cleaned several times a week when we were there. Staff was incredible. Can’t wait to go back and highly recommended. Walking distance to grocery stores shops shopping mall Walgreens several restaurants and bars. We rented a car to get from the airport to the Thunderbird, did not need the car all week. Do you yourselves a favor and stay at this hidden gem.
