We arrived and upon arrival it smelled like trash or broken garbage disposal considering no trash was in the room. We told the front desk and they must have fixed the issue when we returned the smell wasn't as bad but still stinchy. The room was very outdated. The huge glass doors and balconys made up for that though considering... More

So I must admit I've stayed at this place a few times, the first time I wasn't real impressed with the unit we rented, this time we had two units for the first couple days and then slimmed down to one for the last day. Let me start with the staff, I found most of the staff to be quite... More

It is a short walk down our private boardwalk to the pristine beaches along the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Our beautiful tropical pools are superb. All... More

Our family trip started off on the wrong foot... My cousin tried to book this place, but apparently you have to be over 25 to reserve a room. The person (Charlie) helping her on the phone was really condescending towards her. She's only 22, but regardless, staff shouldn't make anyone feel this way. So I called and booked the room....

The Mayan is the jewel of the island! Very calming. Easy access to the beach and not too fussy with the tourist foot, buggy and commotion traffic, but yet very close to all the excitement. I love the layout of the condo and the rooms. Big windows facing the gulf was too hard to resist with a morning coffee and... More

We stayed the day after Labor Day so it was pretty empty. The room was nice and clean. The pools were right out the door. First floor rooms don't have much of a view. All in all we had great time and would definitely come back.

Let me preface this by saying that I took a chance on this place despite it's hit and miss reviews and LOW ranking on places to stay in Pt. Aransas, and I'm pleasantly surprised by the grounds and my unit. I picked this room specifically because it looked, well, pretty LOL, and I wanted a room with a jacuzzi tub... More

We stayed in unit 302, great views of the gulf, very well maintained, very comfortable, spacious, clean, with everything you need. Really enjoyed the heated pool + hot tub, the short walk to the beach, the sunrise. At a reasonable price too.

This place is awesome- especially for kids. It's a great location- close to North Padre and Port Aransas. And - a short walk (on a bridge) straight to the beach (that's cleaned of seaweed). The pools are perfect- it's so nice to play on the beach and jump straight in the pool. We stayed the weekend after labor day- and... More
