“Stayed for the month of January”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Overall it was a good experience. Water park use was limited due to cold weather. Friendly staff and little to complain about. Low winter monthly rates and good access to the beach.. Friend and I had a great stay.

Room Tip: Ocean view would be great.

We stayed here 2 nights. The room was great.....Seaside Grill very good....pool was heated and wonderful....beach just outside the door......relaxing stay. Free Wifi and huge parking provisions. We asked about channels on the TV and an associate was there immediately to reprogram the TV. Great service.

We stayed at the resort with a large family group of 30. Everyone had a big time in both the water park and on the beach. We loved the direct access to the beach! We also enjoyed several tasty meals at the Shrimp Haus, although the prices seemed a little high. The fast-water River Rapids next to resort was the favorite attraction for the kids. Rooms were clean and comfortable, and we found the staff to be helpful and friendly. Other than the relatively expensive rates, the overall experience was very good.

Overall, we enjoyed our time in South Padre very much. The accommodations at SP Schlitterbahn were nice, our bed was comfortable and the pull out was not bad either. My wife and two children ages 8 & 6 had a great time on the beach and in the water park. Check in was acceptable, however; nothing to really make you feel like you were anything other than ordinary. We were a bit disappointed that the associates did not take a moment to tell us about the property or the amenities as this was our first visit. We drove to a public access both days we were there for beach time as we did not know there was access direct from the hotel (we figured out on our last day about 3 hours before we were to leave). Had the front desk associates spent a few moments making us aware I think we would have enjoyed the stay even more. The walls are thin and the 1st night we could hear everything going on in the room next to us, needless to say we did not get much sleep after a 16-18 hour day of travel. The 2nd night was better as the people next to us left. The toilet & bath area is very small but manageable. My kids enjoyed the indoor water park and really appreciated the heated pool. We hope to go back again sometime when the whole water park is open. I did have one interaction with a maintenance man and he was very kind.

Room Tip: Room 622 has an issue with the window so your view is very poor (ask for a different one until this...

We arrived really late about 11pm. I called the resort to make sure our room was not cancelled. The front desk staff were very nice and confirmed late arrival. The room was comfortable and our window overlooked the beach. Word of caution almost all beach facing 1st floor rooms have window that is in front of The Seaside Grill/Pool other guests can see into your room if they are close proximity to window. Request a second floor or higher room if staying in beach front building.The resort is located directly on the beach and so you have plenty to do between the indoor waterpark activities and beach. The indoor waterpark itself is great for families with younger children. Mine are teenagers and found there was not enough variety for them so they spent most of the time at the beach. We ate at the Seaside Grill 1x and found it to be a bit pricey for the quality but the staff were very nice and it was convenient. We ate most of our meals out. The staff was able to recommend a variety of restaurants and activities. We went on the thriller boat ride at Pirates Cove pier it was fun and we were able to see dolphins so no need in booking extra dolphin watch excursion. Also, the city has free transportation bus service around the island and over to the mainland, you can get a schedule from the visitors center located on the island. Overall it was a great weekend and warm 70+ degrees weather..

Room Tip: Beachfront building stay on 2nd floor or higher. 1st floor beach facing rooms have windows that in f...

Our standard king room was very clean and had an awesome bonus little view of the ocean. The hotel itself was very nice and very clean. The loblolly restaurant had delicious pizza that was convenient to take back to our room after spending the morning in the water park. Our 2.5 and 8 year old, as well as my husband and I had a blast. It's winter so we didn't expect much, but we had an awesome time in the children's area, the not so lazy river and on the 2 big tube slides. There was also a free carousel and giant playscape that had all kinds of instruments to shoot and throw foam balls at each other. The short walk to the beach was very convenient so we went often. There is a station to wash your body and feet off so we really didn't track much mess back into our room. We had an amazing time and I bet it's even more fun when the whole park is accessible and open during the warmer months.

Don't request ocean view unless you just want a small partial view. We went the in the middle of winter in the look of an indoor water park...yes they do have a lazy river indoor but we were so cold that we had to shorten our visit it was 37f and it certainly raining too much

Room Tip: The ocean view is not worth it as it is blocked by other building
