About Thunderbird Beach Resort, Treasure Island

Retro landmark hotel on the white sands of Treasure Island

View of the Gulf

Looking out over the Gulf of Mexico, iconic Thunderbird Beach Resort is centrally located on Treasure Island in the Tampa Bay region. This perfect beach getaway is still close enough to pop over to lively Tampa, less than 30 miles away.

Near John’s Pass Village

Downtown Treasure Island is full of discovery, with John’s Pass, an old fishing village with merchant shops and seashell tours, only 4 minutes away by car. You can soak up the rays on St. Pete Beach or head to “Sunshine City,” St. Petersburg, for a Tampa Bay Rays basketball game.

Live music 7 days a week

Surrounded by tropical gardens and beachfront, this hotel offers local music at Ikki Woo Woo’s Tiki Hut, as well as 3 pools. You can sit under a palm tree at sunset, order a margarita, and listen to the sound of steel drums, or try the Italian dishes at Feola's Ristorante.

Ocean breezes and WiFi

Thunderbird offers colorful, light-filled, seashell-themed units with kitchens and tropical breezes; many feature beach views from private or shared balconies. All rooms include the perks of free WiFi and free guest membership at nearby sports and entertainment complex, The Club.

    Thunderbird Beach Resort, Treasure Island
    For the most part, the stay was fine. The worst part was the bed was so hard that my husband and I both had sore backs and hips. We asked at the front desk about a mattress pad and they said they would bring one up. That didn't happen. We even tried to sleep on the fold out couch thinking it couldn't be any worse. The last night of 4, we took the mattress pad from the fold out couch and put it on top of the bed mattress. It was better. The last night we were there, we had a bunch of teenage girls having a party next door. Music and screaming was extremely loud through the cardboard walls. We called the front desk and they said quiet hours started at 11 pm and they would not enforce it until then!

    Happy Experience
    Overall it was a great experience. The hotel is definitely showing its age but was very clean and comfortable. I will be back for sure.

    Pleasant stay!
    If you’re looking for luxury accommodations this isn’t the place for you. If you want a reasonably priced, clean, and roomy place to stay on the beach with all the amenities then you can’t beat the Thunderbird. Staff was great and the location is perfect.

    First Class Staff
    One week before our stay my husband fractured his ankle. Hotel had no elevator and we had second floor room reserved. Staff worked diligently to get us first floor room even though hotel was completely booked. Fantastic staff and wonderful hotel.

    Nicely Decorated Suite
    Hotel was very clean and comfortable. Rooms were large and nicely decorated. Directly on the beach and in a great area with plenty of restaurants nearby within walking distance. Only drawback (and not the hotel's fault) there was a group of people partying near our room very loudly.
