This was our second winter in SPI. The Sapphire by far is the best resort for location and amenities. The staff are awesome and more than helpful with any issues. We stayed from the middle of February to the middle of April. KIds and grandkids came had a ball. Enjoyed the Pearl and Seaside Grill for cocktails and food. Both... More

Spent the month of February in this condo. After a few weeks several things became annoying. Light bulbs burned out, lots of items missing in the kitchen (specifically- pizza pan, a few basic spices, decent wine glasses, a few cleaning supplies to keep YOUR kitchen clean on daily basis. We have always been privy to condo's on the Florida gulf... More

Rented 703. Nice height to overlook the ocean and the resort. The room is very well supplied and everything was in good working order. We spent a fair amount of time just sitting on the balcony. The resort itself is clean and the exercise room was very large with more than enough equipment for our needs. We were told there... More

This condo exceeded our expectations in every way. We were blown away by the stunning decor. It was just like the pictures you see on the web page. We had everything you could possibly need for the beach and pool. Beach cart, beach chairs, toys for making sand castles etc, bogie boards beach umbrellas beach towels and even a cooler.... More

Nice condo with a balcony right off the beach and a community balcony off the bayside. Better than a hotel stay. This place is fairly new. Nice pools right off the beach. Great staff. And the owner of the condo we rented was great to work with. Rented #703. Not high up, but enough to have a good view of... More

I can honestly say I was surprised at how lovely this trip was. Being a beach & hotel snob I had low expectations about renting a condo on the beaches of Texas...and boy was I wrong. The island - we went at the quietest time of year. This was fantastic. We didn't have a wait at any restaurants and the... More

Best condo on the beach! Beautifully landscaped! Pool is drop dead gorgeous! Game room with a wonderful movie theater! Great exercise room! Magnificent view! Staff is very helpful and will go out of their way to help you in any way. We have stayed here many times and is always our first choice.

I was there just this past weekend. We had a wonderful time with my family in the 3 bedroom suite that we stayed in. The view of the beach is nice. South Padre Island is one of the nicer beaches that I have been to and enjoy the fact that this place is right on the beach. Love the fact... More

We've been renting for the last four years and it is a little hit or miss on the quality of rooms for the money. Fantastic weight room and great pool and hot tub with access to hotel pool and bar next door. Beach access is the best on the island. A few things to bear in mind: * the staff... More

My experience at The Sapphire was just beautiful. One weekend a year my brother reserves a beautiful place for our immediate family to come together and enjoy a weekend getaway. The Sapphire is beautiful, the rooms were huge and the view was amazing.
