You can't go wrong with a hotel on the beach with a large pool and tiki bar ... bonus LIVE entertainment. We chose this hotel as friends were staying there and enjoyed so much, we extended our stay....and, will definitely return. Rooms are somewhat remodeled other than our bathroom that had vibrant 1960's tile on the retro walls....kind of fun!...

This resort was just what I was looking for. Walk out my room to pool, tiki bar and beach. Staff was amazing. I wanted vintage and this is cool. I give it a bad rating because of the homeless people who hang there right on the entrance to beach. They were there for 3 days and nights (all night I...

I am sorry that you did not to enjoy your visit without experiencing the people who hang out on the beach behind all of the hotels on the island.

My girlfriends and I stayed at Thunderbird 10/20 - 10/24 for a beach getway. The resort is well maintained, offers plenty of outdoor seating and the interaction with the staff was very friendly and they accomodated all our requests. For our first night, we dined at the Italian restaurant on property which by the way, was amazing and the bartender...

Thunderbird Beach Resort never stops making improvements and treating guest like family. That's to Melody for keeping our suite sparkling and clean. Entertainment at the Tiki bar was top notch and Lou made sure we weren't thirsty. Shelly delivered the best salad and pizza ever found. See you soon!
