Historical Traveler Reviews The Tahitian Resort Treasure Island
The front desk didnt know what they were doing. My husband and i had to switch rooms 3 times out of the 5 days we stayed there. The pool was extremely cold and they wouldnt turn up the heat for it.
Nice little place
...just got back from 3 days at the Tahitian and while it is not The Don CeSar, my wife and I were very satisfied with this nice little motel on the beach. The room was clean when we arrived and was cleaned daily, staff was friendly and helpful, the pool and grounds were well kept and the price was right. It fit our requirements to a tee, giving us easy "step out of your room onto the beach" access to the Gulf and provided a comfortable home base with shopping, entertainment and restaurants within walking distance or a short drive. We will be staying there again and recommend the Tahitian to anyone looking for a relaxing stay on the beach.
Would stay again.
We stayed at the Tahitian Resort 4 years ago... and we found it to be a wonderful little place to stay. The room was clean and air conditioning was great. No bugs, great staff, great grounds, loved the pool. The beach was marvelous. BBQ pits outside were very handy. We are planning another trip next year and are most likely going to stay here again. I would recommend it.
Adaquate room, great pool & beach
We were pleased with the room and facilities. We stayed the week of Thanksgiving. Room was clean and well cared for daily. Pool and grounds were cleaned daily. Price was reasonable and $4.00 less than our original reservation place. Would I stay there again? Yes. Our whole family was there. We had two rooms and two suites. No one had complaints.
Nice place , right on the beach
I just return from a week long stay at the Tahitian Resort and found it to be clean , comforatble with a very pleasant staff. A great value for the price, they have a kids pool which was well liked by both kids and parents !!
Worst experience ever
Both my partner and I have agreed that the Tahitian was by far the worst hotel experience we ever had. At checkin, we were meeting family and so were unable to inspect our room; however, later that evening upon returning we discovered it had not been cleaned between guests.
The toilet had stains on the seat, the shower had hair all over the basin, the sink had hair and toothpaste in it and - to top of the bathroom scene - the still full waste basket had a douche bottle in it.
The bedroom and kitchen were no better. The sheets did not appear to be fresh and as it was late and there was no answer at the front desk, we resorted to sleeping on top of the sheets fully clothed. The next day the manager was unwilling to work out any kind of a refund and was rude to top it off.
New Owners -bad rooms
We have stayed at the Tahitian for several years and always enjoyed the friendly staff and nice clean rooms even though they were "old" ( 2 bedroom Apartment) and perhaps the lowest prices on the beach off-season. The hotel was sold between the time we booked and arrived.
We were told the rooms had been given a complete overhaul. When we arrived last October, the rates had gone up by almost 30% and I had to argue to maintain the rate I was quoted when I made my reservations.
That was the start of our downfall. Arriving on Saturday afternoon, we found one of the AC's not working, the toilet not flushing properly, and the most disgusting looking stove I have ever seen. Then to our dismay, when we went to bed that evening we had dirty sheets! These sheets had been used and had some very ugly stains (use your imagination). I had to carry the sheets to the front desk in the morning and get new ones as there is no cleaning staff on the weekends.
We were given flat sheets (fitted are too expensive we were told) and could not get them to stay on the bed at nite. The straw breaker for us was when the AC in the bedroom froze up altogether and the fans made such racket you could not sleep with them on. We checked some of the other hotels on the strip and ended up moving mid-week to the hotel right next door! It is brand new, and we had much larger 2-bedroom unit for just $15 more per nite - it was worth it! We will be returning there again this year. The Tahitian is charging the same rate for their 2-bedroom as this brand new facility! Their idea of an update was to throw some paint on the walls - nothing else was new or changed. The family owned motel sold to a larger chain and looks like the new owners just don't care but will keep increasing the price! I would not recomend this hotel to anyone traveling to Treasure Isle. We have been visiting this area for over 25 years and never seen such a mess.
Nice Clean Beach Hotel
We stayed at the Tahitian for 9 days at the beginning of August 2003.
It was nice and very clean. Very basic one bedroom apartment. Was across the street from the actual hotel, which had a very nice pool.
The housekeepers were very nice. Always had an abundance of clean sheets and towels, sheets were changed every day! Basic kitchen, had full-size stove and fridge, had a little of every utensil. Had great parking in our lot. Nice place, will definitely visit again! The Beach behind the Tahitian was gorgeous!!! Staff very helpful and friendly.
Clean your own room
Had to drive to a neighboring hotel to get linens to make couchbed since our apartment apparently didn't come with them. Asked Tahitian Resort housekeepers for a bed spread to go on the couchbed. I didn't notice until I was putting it onto the bed, that it was covered in yellow sticky, slimey stuff. Maybe I should have specified that I wanted a clean one. The ac wouldn't cool. Couldn't get anyone to check it, so I checked and the filters apparently had never been cleaned. The insides of the kitchen drawers were nasty. Apparently noone ever cleans behind bathroom doors either. I complained at the front desk to man whom kept telling me the manager wasn't available (for an entire week). He acted as if I weren't even there. One day the housekeeper picked up the dirty towels and the clean ones that we hadn't used, but didn't bother to leave more clean ones. If anyone uses this place, check the beds before the office closes and don't let the children lean on the window sills to look out the windows unless you want their arms to get filthy.

... need to get an alarm system and then worry about it long distance. The Venetian Falls place. Beautiful inside, much newer than the other places we looked at, being sold furnished, lovely grounds, across the street from a beautiful club house and pool. Lots of activities, very low HOA fees BUT there is nothing special about it - no view except plants out the back. No Florida feel other than it would be warm and sunny. I know that doesn't make sense but I can't ...

"If you need anything off island you have to go very early in the morning or after dark." " if you want to go out to eat you need to do it during the week or very early or late at night". It takes a little planning but isn't as bad as I expected. I was getting bored (really) so ...

It's time to start driving west, so we made our way to Baton Rouge, LA, where we spent a couple nights. Another rainy day meant we went to the Mall of Louisiana where Marla shopped ...

In the last hour, we found two of the best rides of the whole trip - a dangle-down roller coaster that did loops without the discomfort of rattly-brain syndrome, and Cheetah Hunt that was wonderfully smooth and fast. Next time do these ...
Checked out the Community Center this morning. There is tennis for Paul. Yoga and Pilates classes for me. We drove down to the south end of the island (Bradenton) to Coquina Beach. Beautiful huge, white beach, and very few people. It's cloudy today but still 70 degrees. So far we have yet to deal with any real traffic. Took Sammy to the dog park behind City Hall in ...
