Went on a 5 night vacation in room 903. Our condo smelled like urine and mildew really bad. It ended up being the UNWASHED comforters on the bed (they hadn't been washed in a very long time...what does the $65 cleaning fee pay for?). When we stripped the beds to wash them ourselves, the washing machine didn't work. We had... More

When we first booked it on line, we were a little skeptical but the accommodations were excellent. The view from our 4th floor condo was superb and the private beach access was great as well. The condo was exactly as described and all the amenities and conveniences of home away from home. The only reason why I did not give... More

Very quiet resort and privately own condos. Nice pool and great boardwalk to the island. It is centrally locate in the middle of the island. Went through VRBO to rent this 3 bedroom condo which was roomy and well equipped with everything one needs for a relaxing vacation.

We rented a condo at Ocean Vista Condos from Padre Island Getaways. The people at Padre Island Getaways were nice, warm, friendly and helpful. The condos appear to be in great shape. A little noisy here at night but otherwise a great & location. The biggest downfall really is that it is SPI. In my opinion SPI is pricier than... More

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
