Because the listed phone number of this business is a 630 area code phone number from the state of Illinois and it just so happens that a 5 star review was posted from that state. It also doesn't coincide with the rest of the reviews, which are unfavorable. That's why.

This business is completely dishonest. We were charged for several nights of stay for the 4th of July weekend. Then we called to cancel b/c we changed our minds. They refused to provide a refund even though the law says we're entitled to a 3-day cancellation policy. Also, we never signed anything nor stayed there and their business practice is... More

Myself and family members were very pleased with the accommodation's at the Cabana's and the overall experience the owner's offered. All amenities were provided for and the owners were more than just hospitable but they were also extremely knowledgeable of not only the island but of the best restaurants and places to visit while there! I would recommend South Padre... More

You know, it never ceases to amaze me how some people can take the truth and twist it.  This "lady" checked in with another couple last week. Showing up with a little yorkie adorned with pink bow tucked neatly under her arm like she was carrying a purse. She neglected to mention that she was bringing a "pet" when she booked... More

First and foremost who wants to stay in a condo or hotel at the beach? I see no fun in that. We were looking to find a place with atmosphere and South Padre Cabanas has that beach vibe. Initially driving up we were concerned because the front facing of the property is not much to look at, but nothing that... More

This was the cheapest (and only) place I could find on the island since we booked last-minute and preferred a condo to a hotel. The price was awesome, and Eydie was great. She gave good advice on places to be careful of on the drive down and warned us of the police on the island. It definitely wasn't new or... More

I have stayed at this place several times, and I am always made to feel at home. The owners are very hospitable and are always eager to make my stay as enjoyable as possible. The accommodations are not brand new, but they are comfortable and meet my needs. A comfortable bed, cold a/c, refrigerator for the beer and nearby restaurants... More

This is a nicely located budget accommodation that seems to be geared toward spring breakers, with super cheap furniture and virtually nothing to cook with in the "full" kitchen, nowhere to store clothes, and lots of cockroaches. It was adequate, however, for our family of four which includes an infant and a dog. Since it was low season we picked... More

We were just advised of this factious review. This review was posted by a woman who called and represented herself as working from a newspaper and had heardvnice things about our place and wanted to stay here. We gave her an almost free visit and only charged her $100 security dep because she brought a dog. When she left, the... More
