A great place for business or pleasure. The beautiful beach is close and accessible. The hotel has everything you would want for both business and pleasure. The staff make you feel so welcome. Try it for yourself.

Sadly we are checking out today, Aug 5, 2013. We had an amazing stay! The staff is very friendly and always helpful! Easy Beach and Pool access! Amazing buffets, although a bit pricy for the Average family. Bring your own chairs and Beach Umbrella...they charge daily for them, and a utility cart is very helpful in getting all your beach things down there! We went to walmart in Padre and bought a 9ft sport tent, couldnt have stayed all day at the beach without it! Might be helpful to being a rubber mallet! We brought our own drinks (beer too) and snacks to save a bit! A double bed room easily fits an air mattress! We had two adults and three teens! Wifi could be faster but it works. Overall, we will be back next year and wouldn't stay anywhere else! Enjoy your vacay!

This hotel was better 2 years ago. Poor maitenance. Old rooms or such a high price. Good view of Ocean but the bathrooms and blaconies need maitenance. Housekeeping poor. Also they promise microwaves but it is upon request and they ended not providing it. Food offer by the pool area is too pricey. They only good thing is guads by the pool to control people sneaking in but that was all.

We had confirmed reservations for july25 till 28. On arrival we were our reservations did not exist. Luckily I still had on my iPhone. After an hour or more the manager of the day was able to find us a room. We reserved a deluxe king suite gulf front and received a gulf view from the side regular room. I was very disappointed but tried not to let it ruin our trip. The room was comfortable and cool. We had no balcony chairs. We call to have some delivered and was told it was doubtful any were available. However, the same Manager arrived in awhile with chairs in toe. Cudos to her. When I called to have a bellman come for our luggage as we were leaving. The message button lite up and there was a message from the coordinator for the hotel for our event. She apologized and offered us a reduced rate on our room or better yet A 2 BEDROOM CONDO for the extent of our stay. Wow! Would that have been nice. Maybe a personal call (cellphone) could defused all issues.

Having said all this the hotel is nice and light and airy. The bed was very comfortable and the linens were soft and lovely.

The staff was mostly great. The Bell Staff is really great. These young men were all happy to see us, most gracious and extremely pleasant. We had gone shopping and came from the parking loaded down with lots of heavy bags. One young man came rushing up to us with a cart to help with our new treasures. He helped us to our room and unloaded each bag onto the bed. Thank you for a wonderfully trained Bell staff.

All in all we did have a nice time. On your next visit to Pearl be sure to try the omelette station at breakfast. They are wonderful and so is the young lady preparing them.

We recently visited South Padre Island for our family vacation. After searching quite a bit we chase the pearl for its location, as well as the pictures of the property. We got here and were excited to see the ocean in the background. After leaving the lobby on way to the room I started noticing towels laying around on things. Puddles if dirt and water collecting in the elevators, trash etc. Our room was the "luxury" suite. The room stinks of mildew, there is dust and dirt all over the ceiling. The bathtub has chips out of the paint. It was so disappointing I immediately booked us for another place for the remainder of the trip. The pool is old,outdated with mildew on steps. There was food on the ground like oranges, etc. hair clumps etc floating in the water and strung out on steps. I could go on and on on this place. Rather than doing all that, I figured I would write a review, which I will mention, I usually do NOT do. I travel frequently for business and the like. Don't waste your money here. There are plenty of other choices. The people are short. Check in was late. We bought the family package and that was not fulfilled. Won't be back here.......ever.
