“Excellent Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

We stayed for just one night - to celebrate my husband's 65th birthday. When I made the reservation, I booked the 'spa package' but told them it was for his birthday. Well, when we arrived, much to our surprise, they had upgraded us to a 'romance package' as well, ie., champagne and chocolate dipped strawberries. We were also on the 12th floor in a beautiful, tastefully decorated condo! The view to the north was amazing and the balcony so inviting that we sat out there whenever we were in the room (except to sleep of course:!) Speaking of sleeping, the bed/linens were extremely comfortable as well. We ate at the Beachside Grill downstairs and took in their Friday night seafood buffet, which was exceptional. The breakfast in the morning was also excellent, with an omelette/pancake station as well as a great choice of other dishes. And, my husband's spa treatment at the adjacent Sapphire Spa was also a good experience! We whole heartily recommend this hotel/restaurant - and are thinking that we should make this an annual event!

Room Tip: The rooms from the 7th floor down are less expensive, but we wanted the view! Ask for as high as po...

The Pearl is located on the beach just a hundred yards from Schlitterbahn. The room and bed was comfortable. The pool is really nice, but has shade in the afternoon from the high rise that was recently added to the west. There is a nice pool bar, but on a Sunday in September it was closed.
Overall, nice stay, but not amazing.

I have hesitate writing this report, because I love the hotel, the pool and the beach. The pool is large and fun, the beach is always clean.
We try to come to south padre every year, but this time we got a bad room. We rented a 2 bedroom suite, we told the reservationist where we wanted to stay, but when we got there, th eonly suite awailable was on floor 12, room 19 and 20.
The air conditionair needs to be repaired. We neede to turn it on high so the bedroom would have a little cooling, consequently the living room was frezzing cold and the bedroom still too warm, We reported it more then once, but nothing got done.
I am aware that the suites are privatly owned and the owner of this one does not seem to care what happens to it. There was ripped stripping on a door, a chair on the balcony had crashed and was never replaced.. the furniture was heavily used and needed to be changed out, In other words, it was disgusting.
We did get a discount, but I prefer to have a better room then this one.
The Hotel staff it very nice, the pool, wow, that's lovely as well and yes I will go back next year, but I will make sure to arrive early in the day and get a better room, the adjoining room, room 19 was wonderful and I believe if you don't need a suite, there are many good rooms with well working air conditioning and lovely furniture.

You don't need to go to Mexico or the Bahamas for the perfect Resort situation. The front desk staff was amazing. Those that handled my reservations were so kind and helpful and made everything so simple. The room had an amazing view and it was easy to get to the beach. Of course, it was hard to want to be at the beach with such an amazing pool area. Loved the swim up bar. Room was great. All rooms could see the ocean. Requested extra housekeeping in the middle of the night and an attendant was sent right up. Food was great. Need a romantic getaway, family fun or a business break. The Pearl at South Padre is for you. Parking attendant and bellman were very helpful as well.

Room Tip: All Rooms are Great. It does not really matter. If you are nostalgic for South Padre, ask for a ro...

First the positives: Nice pool next to hotel, great beach access and the maid service was very good. The negatives: Pool gets too much shade because of the Sapphire Condominiums next door. There is no sun by mid afternoon to lay in. The jacuzzi was dirty with sand, not sure if its because we used it late in the afternoon or they didn't clean it everyday. It's an old hotel, furniture is dirty, had a hard time opening the patio door because of rust in the door track. We will go to another hotel next time.

Just returned from a stay at this lovely little gem on the beach. Comfortable rooms, lovely view. The staff at this hotel goes out of their way to be gracious and make your stay as wonderful as possible. We will definately be returning to this beautiful hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view of the water are lovely.

A four inch long COCKROACH was in our first room. Room service breakfast came earlier than it was supposed to. The food was cold, bland, and chewy. For three of us breakfast cost sixty six dollars. Way over priced for the the quality.
Swimming pool was green with debri floating throughout the pool. Was told when making the reservation I was told the "swim up bar" would be open. It was not open at anytime during the stay.
THIS HOTEL IS NOT WORTH THE MONEY!!!!! BRING BUG TRAPS!!!!

Room Tip: Dont stay here!!!
