Overall experience was great. Nice view from room, people were friendly. Only one issue and that was when asked to speak to the general manager who was on site left name and number twice he never called back. Other than that great experience. Kid friendly.

Our boys ages 4 & 7 loved it! There are no bellhops it's all do it yourself. Hard to find luggage carts was a hassle with all the gear. Parking spots were tight. Room with 2 queen beds was clean. Bathroom was very small. Wristbands instead of room keys are great. No coffee until 8am so walk to sunset cafe... More

Thanks for the post and the 5 stars! All of our rooms feature two queen beds or a king sized bed with queen sized sleeper sofa (no double beds here!) and the wristband technology makes the days of wondering "where the heck did I put my hotel key" over. Depending on the time of year, we host families, empty nesters,... More

We spent the week leading up to Independence Day at the Schlitterbahn Resort on South Padre Island. With very few exceptions, our stay was perfect. We spent each day on the beach and/or doing other activities, and then hit the waterpark in the afternoon to cool off. We arrived almost two hours early, so all the rooms were not ready... More

This place is for the birds. Average accomodations at best and wayyyyyyy overpriced. Forced to get a waterpark pass, even if you dont use it. The person wanting to stay and enjoy south Padre, this is not the place for you. The wealthy person with lots of kids or grand kids, this is the place for you. Bring LOTS of... More

Schlitterbahn Beach Resort, located beachfront on the beautiful Gulf waters is comparably priced to other full-service hotels on the Island and waterpark admission (at savings of 40%-70%) is a perk the overwhelming majority of Guests appreciate. We feature thick, plush Denver mattress, high thread count linens and the use of repurposed Loblolly Pines throughout the property lend a unique feel... More

Okay, first of all, hotel is great for the kids! We had a great time at the water park and the environment is without a doubt family friendly. However, it doesn't quite live up to the title "resort". Check in is at 4, rather than the standard 3 for most hotels/resorts, we arrived after 5 and room still not ready.... More

Thanks for the review and glad to hear the positive comments and appreciate your thoughts on areas we can look to improve. While the lobby is not extremely large, we preferred to focus our attention during construction in 2012 to creating more space for Guests in the areas they want to be....the waterpark, restaurants and carousel areas. We did utilize... More

Our kids range in age from 3 to 16, so finding somewhere that's affordable and fun for everyone can be tricky! We were so completely satisfied with this resort! There was enough to do near the room that we could send the older ones off while our little guy napped. There was no room key to hassle with; our wristbands... More

Thanks Marlisa for taking the time to write a very thoughtful and thorough review. We try very hard to make sure that we are well-rounded to handle the wide diversity we see in our Guests. Sorry you aren't a fan of the Wolfgang Puck provided in the rooms and can understand wanting the coffee if you are an early riser... More

This is the second year in a row my family and I stayed at the resort. The first year was fantastic.(2013). This year was still awesome. The bathrooms are really small but how much room do you need. The bed are very comfortable and the a/c blows cold. Showers are always hot. We love our stay. The staff is always... More

When my fiancée said she wanted to vacation somewhere near the beach with a theme park the whole family could enjoy, I knew there was ONE place that could deliver. Schlitterbahn Beach Resort on SPI did NOT disappoint. The property is brand new and the room we stayed in was clean and had all the comforts we were looking for.... More

Thanks Ryan for the review and all the compliments! Our Torrent "tidal wave" River is quickly becoming one of the most popular attractions we have...

For this to be a family hotel...it has a lot to be desired. The rooms are not family friendly with a small table for 2 and a room which can accommodate 4. No place to hang wet items to dry after fun at the park. The smallest bathroom ever...thought I was in New York...oh wait my bathroom was larger in... More

I appreciate your review as we take all of them seriously and discuss at weekly meetings. While 15 out of the last 16 reviews have been either 4 or 5 (out of 5) stars, we never stop looking for ways to ensure every Guest is happy and planning a return visit.

Unique water park! You almost never even need to leave the water! The lazy river connects many of the other rides, so you really don't have to leave the water, you just take an "exit" on your tube! Nice, because you stay cool and even though you might wait in line, its floating in the water, instead of standing in... More
