I have stayed at the Thunderbird countless times over the years and have never had a bad experience. The staff always go out of their way to make my vacation a fun, memorable one. My room is always clean, the pool and tiki bar areas are always kept up and you can tell people who work at the hotel enjoy helping to make their guests feel comfortable and carefree. I always stay in a oceanfront efficiency, which has a full separate kitchen (fridge, stovetop, sink, table, dishes, microwave), balcony which faces the walkway and beach (although the beach is very wide and quite a walk to the water), sunsets are beautiful, daily music/singer at the tiki bar, great Italian restaurant with outdoor seating and room delivery. I really have nothing negative to say about the Thunderbird. I feel so happy when I’m there and always love my stay !!

There is no onsite restaurant. It’s permanently closed. Also, I understood there would be no daily room cleaning however, I thought we could all leave room and request a cleaning. Nope. So, I asked if they could bring us new bed linens, bath May, tissues and soap. Again; nope. We had to go get them from the front desk. The guy with the blond hair is really nice and helpful. So far, all the females have been less than friendly. When you ask for something, they don’t answer, they just walk away to get it. Not horribly rude, but in a competitive business like tourism, they’re not doing the owners any favors. I understand it just changed ownership, hopefully the new owners will incentivize their employees to be a little more helpful. Also, this was a great mid-century modern hotel at some point. They’ve “modernized” it somewhat but they’d do better to restore it to its 1950s glory.

pros: Can't beat the location- on the beach, close to restaurants, shopping, Publix. Live music most evenings until sunset. Cons: Deferred maintenance throughout-crumbling concrete, unkept landscaping, there are two pools but I never saw anyone cleaning them which lead to both being dirty, cloudy or closed due to lack of maintenance. They do have "security" but they ignore the fights, Marijuana, loud crowds, etc. There are designated smoking areas but guests smoke on the pool deck, again, security ignores.

The place is terrible. The rooms are full of mold. I had to check out because I could not breath. The front desk staff was rude and unprofessional. However after a small argument they did refund my money. The pool area was filthy. The resort is falling apart.

Room Tip: Avoid it at all cost. Don’t believe what you see on their reviews it’s false advertising.
