This place is overly priced for what you get in your condos. You do get lots of roaches in your room. The condo looked extremely dirty. Let's just say, we were very uncomfortable and really did not enjoy our trip. When we brought our complaints to management, they were extremely rude and did nothing. Please do not stay at Ocean...

We stayed in a 9th floor condo for 5 nights. We were right on the beach. The complex is quiet, and well-maintained. There is a pool, kiddie pool (2 feet deep) and a hot tub. Our condo was 3 bedroom, 3 bath and comfortably fit 10 people (4 adults and 6 kids). We cooked all of our meals in the... More

For $1,500 per week I expected better than an eighties motel 6 decor. This is probably the most downtrodden unit I have ever had the misfortune to rent. From the blood stained bedspread, rusty fridge. Sticky worn furniture and curtains hanging lopsided of their rods. I was and am afraid to sleep here. No hangers for your clothes. I cannot... More

Just returned from Ocean Vista 607. The condo is beautiful and the onsite staff were very friendly and kept the grounds spotless. We usually go to SPI in the summer and were somewhat disappointed with the available activities during this time of year. Overall the vacation was spent relaxing and spending family time together, doesn't get much better than that.... More

Just returned from a week in Ocean Vista 607. Wonderful corner unit. The onsite staff and maintenance people could not have been nicer. No bad vibes about renters. The grounds were maintainted beautifully and this location could not be better. Mid Island, away from the huge complexes on both ends. The unit was comfortable, attractive but not so elaborate to...

We have been to SPI many times. We live 11 hours away, but own a hotel about 45 minutes away from the Island. So, normally we just drive to the island for the day, or have stayed just a day or two on the island. This time, my husband and I wanted to take our kids and relax on the... More

Checked in last Saturday with no issues.. 15 minutes and out the door. Rented condo 306 and it was nice and clean. Everything is in working order. Great view of the beach and the pool is nice also. I see the pool cleaners each morning doing their thing so no worries there. Nice and close to a lot of shops,... More

This is an answer for all those complaints about rentals at Ocean Vista Towers in South Padre Island TX. If you are looking to rent a condo in the building, be aware: “A large majority of the owners do not like rentals!” The employees and management ONLY answer to the owners and are not employed to cater to the renters....

The employees and management are rude and inhospitable. Each morning the condo management put out umbrellas and chairs for condos that have rented them whether they plan to use them or not. Plus they insist on putting them right in the middle of the beach area. A friend of ours arrived early in the morning to put up his canopy.... More

We stayed at OCEAN VISTA #706 (DO NOT RENT THIS CONDO!) this August and I remembered it because we also stayed there the previous year. it smelled like rotten eggs! Last year I reported the problem but the obviously did not do anything about it because this year the smell was worse. Mentioned it again and got the same blank... More
