loved the location and the staff. The "kitchen" was pathetic. Do not pay extra for the kitchen, it was a complete waste of money.

We love the tiki bar here right on site. I’m not a cold-water person so the hot-tub is a life savor for me and my husband and mom enjoyed it too since it was a bit chilly this time. We also enjoyed the Italy restaurant that’s there for dinner one night. And our housekeeper Nancy was fantastic, she kept us well stocked and taken care of and had such a caring attitude with it. We enjoyed having her around :)

Great location and friendly staff. Very clean. Only issue would be we had adjoining room and could head neighbor now and then

Great beach resort without resort fees! The friendly and responsive staff really made our stay so pleasant. Within a few minutes of calling about a maintenance issue a friendly smiling staff member came to help us. They genuinely care about their guests here. WiFi worked well in the room, around the pool, and even at the beach in front of the hotel (our daughter was finishing up her online classes). We had a nice view of the pool and the beach/ the Gulf from our balcony area. Location was awesome right at the beach. It was fun to watch the kites at the beach area and great sunset views. You can rent a cabana on the beach. Live music every afternoon at the pool area and great little tiki hut bar. Only complaints: kitchen was outdated (but worked for our basic cooking needs) and recycling is not great in this area (we went to Lake Seminole County Park to take our recyclables): https://www.pinellascounty.org/solidwaste/recycling-directory/pdf/recycling_directory.pdf We will definitely be back!

was a great place to stay till we was without water all day on our last day wasnt able to shower before dinner plans had to go to our dinner meeting with saltwater and sand all over us! its not very pleasant dressing up amd feelin sand in places it shouldnt be the hotel didnt offer any discount or any kind of compensation very poor management!!!!

The Thunderbird is the best hotel in Florida. It is family owned and has been for at least fifty years. They still treat people with the family attitude and the place is kept exceptionally clean with exceptional service.

Bonsai tiki bar great hot tub several other bars and eateries within walking distance

The location was great. Close to beach, and stores. We had a suite so the separate bedroom with living room and small kitchen was perfect for us. The main pool was always crowded and the other pool had very cold water. The hotel is old, but they had done a good job of updating it.

Loved how close it is to the beach. Residents stay up late and the hallways are very noisy. Parking is limited to 1 car per room.

Very friendly front desk staff. Checked us in two hours early. Nice room, large clean swimming pool. Nightly music was great.

Awesome atmosphere and staff. Feola’s needs a redo and it oils be nice to get the bathrooms closer the pool then sharing with the other patrons. Vald, Brad, Lee, and ladies were all super nice.

Housekeeping staff were great, front desk staff were not cheerful or made you feel welcome. Room was clean and recently updated, however, you could hear noise from rooms above you and beside you. Like toilets flushing, etc. It had a good pool and wonderful access to the beach.

Liked the atmosphere, could be a bit more updated in the rooms.

The pool area and location of hotel was good but that’s the only good part. There was a sewage smell around the hotel. The room looked like a remodel that wasn’t finished. There was stains on the bed and was just overall unclean. The mattresses were incredibly uncomfortable! It felt like you were laying straight on a boxspring. The bedding was nothing but sheets and a very thin very small top blanket. The top blanket did not even cover the whole bed. The cleaning staff was very unprofessional and disorganized. The pool side bartender was very rude to guest and the drinks he served were gross. There was no where near enough parking. Anytime we returned to the property we would have to wait till someone left to get a parking spot. Hotel had overnight security guard that was useless. People would run around screaming and playing music till 3am and security would do nothing. He was to busy sleeping in his chair. We checked out a day early because my whole family was miserable there. Worst vacation we have ever taken!

I'm glad you enjoyed the most part of your stay and I apologize that you didn't get any compensation about the water but if you can contact me directly at the hotel I will make it right.
