“Bill and Sheila's Padre Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

Ms. Maria at the front desk and Ms. Mercedes at the Beachside Bar and Grille are the stars of the Pearl of South Padre. The property has everything you could want in a resort, beachfront, great views, nice pool and Jacuzzi and restaurants and bars. The staff is so accommodating and the rooms are beyond reasonable. Great location and place to vacation.

Room was satisfactory and clean, all hotel staff was very friendly and helpful and our restaurant food, entertainment and waiter( Luis) were very good. The only problem encountered was some very noisy guests on our floor, however, the front desk staff responded to the problem quickly and showed genuine concern for our satisfaction upon checkout.

We stayed in a one bedroom condo for one night. The living room and bedroom were spacious with great views from the balcony if you are standing. However, it was almost impossible to see the ocean when sitting in the chairs due to the height of the railing. Access to the beach is easy. If you are looking for a room with a sunrise view request a room on the pool side of the hotel. Otherwise you will have to go down to the beach to see the sunrise. The room was clean but could definitely use some cosmetic improvements. Paint and a little extra cleaning would go a long way. Our stay was adequate but would probably look to another property for our next visit.

We stayed a few days during New Years, and due to the inclement weather, we were unable to take advantage of the beach access or pool. They looked great, but freezing weather does not encourage one to venture to the water.

The hotel itself has a nice location, and parking was plentiful when we visited.

We were upgraded to a suite, which was a perk, as we had separate rooms and could host our friends for an evening.

The room and hotel were both starting to show their age. The lights were dim and there were water/rust stains in various areas.

The price was fairly steep if we had remained in the non-suite room we booked.

As it's the only hotel we have used on South Padre Island, we cannot compare.

Excellent hotel for the money. Service was great, food was excellent, room was clean. Mercedes at the beachside bar and grill was awesome. Definitely take advantage of the winter texan package, as it includes breakfast every day of your stay. Also take advantage of the suites; they were an excellent value as well. Would definitely stay here again!

Recently stayed for 4 nights I found the staff to be professional and our suite rivaled any 5 star I have stayed in throughout the world. The hotel itself was spotless and well maintained. I will return here again and again as long as the present management is in place.

Room Tip: Highly recommend the 2 bedroom suites
