We had a great time again this year. I go each and every year and look forward to seeing the same staff that take such great care of us. Kathy always makes sure that we have everything we need in our room and it is always promptly cleaned and ready for us to come back in from the beach!

Trip advisor reviews brought me to the Thunderbird Beach Resort. What an incredible overall experience! What makes Thunderbird such a success is the staff they employ. Every staff member, housekeeping, the pool guy, waitresses and bar tender at the restaurant and everyone in between went out of their way to make our stay perfect. During a visit to the front...

Just make sure when you make reservations that you ask to be in the original Thunderbird section. They bought the Best Western next door and the rooms are difference and the balconies are...

Love, LOVE, LOVE this place!! From walking thru the front doors, to the walking the beach, to swimming in their pool, to drinking at their tiki bar, we couldn't have had a better time.

Wonderful, quaint, retro hotel right on the beach. Tiki bar and live entertainment a plus. We stayed in a suite which was nice and secluded. Although the rooms were slightly dated, the beds were great and Janice and Rita made sure our room was clean and our linens were fresh. Thanks for a great stay!

I have been returning to the Thunderbird every time I go to Florida on vacation. The front desk staff; housekeeping and the bartenders (Vladimir and Lou) at the Tiki Bar are more than employees. I fell like I am returning to family. Beautiful beach views and clean rooms make this hotel the best on the Island. No spa or fitness...
