Overall it was a good experience. Water park use was limited due to cold weather. Friendly staff and little to complain about. Low winter monthly rates and good access to the beach.. Friend and I had a great stay.

We stayed here 2 nights. The room was great.....Seaside Grill very good....pool was heated and wonderful....beach just outside the door......relaxing stay. Free Wifi and huge parking provisions. We asked about channels on the TV and an associate was there immediately to reprogram the TV. Great service.

We stayed at the resort with a large family group of 30. Everyone had a big time in both the water park and on the beach. We loved the direct access to the beach! We also enjoyed several tasty meals at the Shrimp Haus, although the prices seemed a little high. The fast-water River Rapids next to resort was the... More

Overall, we enjoyed our time in South Padre very much. The accommodations at SP Schlitterbahn were nice, our bed was comfortable and the pull out was not bad either. My wife and two children ages 8 & 6 had a great time on the beach and in the water park. Check in was acceptable, however; nothing to really make you... More

We arrived really late about 11pm. I called the resort to make sure our room was not cancelled. The front desk staff were very nice and confirmed late arrival. The room was comfortable and our window overlooked the beach. Word of caution almost all beach facing 1st floor rooms have window that is in front of The Seaside Grill/Pool other... More

Our standard king room was very clean and had an awesome bonus little view of the ocean. The hotel itself was very nice and very clean. The loblolly restaurant had delicious pizza that was convenient to take back to our room after spending the morning in the water park. Our 2.5 and 8 year old, as well as my husband... More

Don't request ocean view unless you just want a small partial view. We went the in the middle of winter in the look of an indoor water park...yes they do have a lazy river indoor but we were so cold that we had to shorten our visit it was 37f and it certainly raining too much

We stayed 2 nights, I have never seen my grandchildren enjoy themselves so well. If you are adventurous, and not picky there is always something to do every day. We hated leaving, enjoyable trip. The staff was cheerful and ready to help when asked.

If this hotel paid me to come back i would happily decline. Drove 4.5 hours from San Antonio to spend our little boys 4th birthday at the waterpark. The water is cooooooold. Not 85 degrees which is advertised on there webpage. I had two shivering little boys- it was unbearable. We were forced to leave the waterpark because of this.... More

The room was decent, staff was great. The water park could be updated. All in all not worth the cost of stay and play. Definitely overpriced for quality. Only thing great was how close the beach is :/
