it's obviously nice place for a family. we spent 2 days there. my kids love there. it's very clean and cozy, but the only thing that I want them to do is to change the sofa bed in a room and to make sure where customers should enter. it's not comfortable to sleep there and inconvenient to find the entrance...

I was a guest on business at this resort hotel and stayed for 3-1/2 weeks. I cannot say enough good things about the accommodations and staff. The resort was clean, bed very comfortable, the staff was extremely attentive and helpful, on-site laundry facilities were a lifesaver. The indoor waterpark was open on the weekends and we had a good time.... More

We come to S. Padre every fall for a reunion with my husbands company. The conference room was very large, the catered buffet was excellent and the caterers were so helpful and friendly. Our granddaughter would love the beautiful carrousel so we will bring her back sometime. Even though the waterpark is only open on week-ends there are plenty of... More

Shelby, We appreciate your thoughtful words and review. Many don't realize that Schlitterbahn South Padre Island is more than a waterpark.....yes, we have an outdoor waterpark and a year-round indoor waterpark, but we also host many reunions, meetings, galas, weddings and more....plus, we have some of the best dining and catering around. We look forward to your group's reunion again... More

Thanks so much and the very thorough review of the resort, waterpark and Shrimp Haus restaurant. Fall is a favorite time of the year for the locals since the weather is just perfect and while it may be off-season, enough visitors and new friends to keep things lively. We look forward to your next visit and thanks again for the... More

Stayed here with our adult children and grand children. We were there on Columbus Day weekend on Saturday and Sunday night. The outdoor waterpark was closed for the season, indoor park was open Saturday and Sunday. Motel is very nice, fairly new, rooms are large. Nice décor, staff was helpful. Beach access is handy and close. Off season, so nothing... More

Thanks so much for the kind words regarding your recent stay. Our use of Loblolly Pines throughout the property does provide that fresh, clean smell as well as ambience that is not replicated anywhere else. Large Denver mattresses provide the comfort to give a good night's sleep before hitting the beach (steps away) or whatever activity you wish to undertake... More

Stayed here after a very disappointing 2 nights at the Travelodge. It was much better. Clean and comfortable. I'd give it a five star rating if it had a balcony off our room overlooking the ocean. The view was great. There were a lot of small children running and screaming through the hall and lobby but even as unpleasant as... More

Thanks for taking the time to review after your stay with us. We are family-friendly and at times, due to the popularity of our waterparks, have quite a few families in the resort. This time of year is a great time to come visit for some quality beach getaway time when the Island is much more quiet and the weather... More

Bathtub shower slippery, no rubber mats available. Cannot communicate with most of staff - unless you speak Spanish. TV not working - only Spanish channels available. Poor service and high prices at restaurants.

Came down here on a girls trip and can't wait to come back with my own family and little kiddos! Amazing resort to stay at. Great swim up bars. The beds were the THE BEST. Super close to the beach. My advice for your trip. Find Pedro the bartender and have him make you a Jamaican Breeze.

Thanks so much for taking the time and posting your review! We try our best to provide something for everyone....sitting on the beach, we have a lot more than the waterparks!

We spent the day at the waterpark. We did not stay at the resort overnight so I can't review that aspect of park. We had a great time. Staff and lifeguards very competent and attentive. Would come again for sure!
