We've stayed here 6 times since 2013. Dec 2014 the last. Other than management not dealing with the sand burs aggressively this is a great place to stay for a few days or longer. The, less than stellar, reviews seem personal--and that can happen, but should not detract from the fact that this "On the TX beach resort" is outstanding.... More

Outstanding resort! Huge, clean, level, paved, landscaped sites with great views. Walking distance from the huge beach. Just fantastic and we wish we could stay longer than the few days we have. Management was great. Near all activities in and around Corpus Christie.

Beautiful place, very spacious, not crowded on your neighbors. Check in staff is fantastic, extremely helpful and polite. Pool is great, ponds everywhere, great boardwalk to the beach. The staff will take you & park you at your site. Free wifi & plenty of cable channels.

I was in love the moment I arrived! I worked with the staff for months before I got there trying to get a spot that we could stay for the month of January and last week in December and they were able to manage that for us even though it was kind of late in the year because you really... More

The good: Sight and facility are extremely well kept. Each site is large with adequately positioned landscaping to provide good privacy. Pool and sauna are well kept and warm. Walk to the beach is easy. The neutral: Prices are about 40% higher than other local parks. I suppose it helps maintain and keep out the rift raft. An example is... More

We have stayed here for years,and stay for the whole summer. This year we need to cancel,and I called the office 2 month early. Cindy said it would be $200.00 to cancel. Their policy clearly say's $100.00 is charged for any Holiday reservations. She now say's it's per Holiday. This place is a RIP OFF!! TRAVELER BEWARE!

This was our first stay at Gulf Waters RV Resort, and it was definitely worth the extra work to be able to stay there (we extended our stay one day, in order to stay a night here). Spaces are hard to come by, so definitely book ahead. This is a beautiful and well maintained park, right on the beach (behind... More

We had already made reservations here for our 32-foot RV before we saw some rather unpleasant reviews of the resort but we came anyway. We've been here a week now with five more weeks to enjoy and have to say we couldn't see anything that confirmed the negatives in other reviews. The grounds are beautifully maintained, the staff is extremely... More

We have stayed at Gulf Waters previously and decided to return to make sure our first impressions were correct. They were. The park is beautifully maintained, all sites are huge, paved and landscaped. This is an owner occupier RV park - ie all the sites are owned by individuals. The boardwalk to the beach has been rebuilt since we were... More

My wife and I, now retired, have been coming to Port Aransas for the past 45 years. First time to stay at GulfWaters RV Resort. What a pleasure. What a beautiful place. Thanks to the owners of these sites for making them look like a tropical paradise. This will be our destination from now on when we trek to the... More
