Positive Reviews

Beachfront location is peaceful and picturesque.

Guests staying at the Thunderbird Beach Resort are quick to praise the hotel's beachfront location. Guests report that the soft white sands are generally clean and surprisingly peaceful. The only downside for some guests is that the sands are so vast that the walk to the water can be a fairly long one.

Pools and Tiki bar come highly recommended.

The hotel's two outdoor pools and Tiki bar prove popular with guests, who also praise the poolside atmosphere. Guests can splash around in the oversized pool or relax in the quiet pool, while enjoying an ice-cold drink from the bar. Guests also applaud the live music.

Friendly staff is ready, willing, and able.

According to reports, the Thunderbird Beach Resort features a friendly and accommodating staff. From front desk employees and bartenders to restaurant servers and housekeepers, guests report experiencing friendly, smiling personnel throughout their stay.

Negative Reviews

Older property could benefit from renovation.

While many guests enjoy their stay at the Thunderbird Beach Resort, others report that the historic hotel is beginning to show its age. These guests suggest that renovation work would help improve the quality of their stay, with beds, air conditioning units, bathrooms, and décor identified as most in need of improvement.

Parking is limited and awkward.

Some guests experience issues with parking at the resort. According to reports, spaces are limited and unable to meet demand. Those that do find a parking space may find these spaces to be narrower than they're used to.

Smoking permitted throughout hotel grounds.

A number of guests are disappointed to learn that smoking is permitted around the hotel grounds. Some guests would prefer is smoking was prohibited from around the pool area.
