WOW! We were so impressed with this place. I just can't say enough good things about it. They have so many benefits and perks! The most important being that they are right on the beach - literally. We timed it and it took us 1 1/2 minutes to walk out of our room and onto the beach shoreline. They have a large wooden step-down leveled deck with a lot of chaise lounges and captain chairs with attached tables that make it very comfortable to sit and enjoy the ocean. The next was price. We got an executive king suite with a full ocean view on the 4th floor that had a decent-size walk-out balcony with two chairs for $102 per night. It also included a microwave, fridge, and sitting area. The view was amazing. We left our door open each night so we could listen to the ocean and wake up to a gorgeous sunrise and ocean breeze. The room itself had nice, rich decor with a very comfortable bed, comforter, and pillows. Other perks included free parking, free high-speed wi-fi, a good-size flat screen TV with a lot of good cable channels. a free breakfast that offered a wide variety of items. We liked their cute Texas-shaped waffles. They have a really nice-sized heated pool and a hot tub that was actually hot with even hotter water shooting out of the jets and felt really good towards the end of the day when the temperature dropped a bit. Another perk is that they give you drink coupons for free drinks. We got 8 total for our stay. This was a nice perk and something we were able to get at the Bar and Grill right next to the pool. The staff was really nice and helpful. When I needed to print out my boarding passes, they graciously let me use their office computer and printer. The cleaning staff did a great job of keeping our room clean and stocked and the hotel and pool area were very clean as well. The staff members were always very nice and friendly and willing to help. While there were a few areas that showed signs of wear, it was so minor, it paled in comparison to the benefits and perks of this place and isn't even worth mentioning. When we visit South Padre again, we will be staying there again! As a side note - we went during the first week of November during the week during the off season. It was very quiet and there were times we were the only one on the beach or in the pool. It was like having the place to ourselves! Also, I would highly recommend renting a beach umbrella and chairs from Jim's Beach Service. Apparently they are on the beach by La Quinta during the summer months, but other times, you can just call them @ (956) 761-2130 and they'll bring the equipment to where you are, set it up, and take it down for $25 per day. Great deal! We got two really nice beach chairs with foot rests and a nice large umbrella. We used them twice from 10:00 am - 6:00 pm and thoroughly enjoyed our days on the beach! Angel did a great job of getting us all set up. Make sure you tip him as he has to carry all that heavy equipment down to the beach.
Try and get the king executive suite. Ask or the one on the 4th floor to get the best birds-eye oce...
