Our July trip to SPI was my first visit to the island. Since I had no idea of the island having only gone to Galveston, Port Aransas, and Corpus Christi in the past, I decided to spend a little more for accommodations just in case. The hotel's website showed beautiful pictures of the pool areas and beach. Those are an accurate depiction. We enjoyed the pool (wish, since there were two, that the smaller one was adults only). we walked to the beach twice, but only waded in the water. Didn't see the need to spend money for chairs to sit on the beach when the pool area was so nice.The cabana room my husband and I had was nice, but not above average by any means. Our sleep number bed controls did not work. we did not mention this to hotel management the bed was comfortable enough as it was. We had breakfast vouchers and ate in the hotel's restaurant all three mornings. The food was good and our service was excellent. On our departure day, we arrived at 6:30 to eat and get on the road. The server was friendly and the food arrived in a timely manner. While driving around the island, we saw several other hotels and condos that we would be comfortable in if we return. I would consider this hotel again if the price per night was lower.
