Well this was my first condo stay and it was definitely the way to go. I went with my 2 daughters(4 & 7) and my sister and her daughter(7). Looking for a hotel room proved disappointingly expensive for what we would need. Finding this 2 bedroom condo at the price we paid was truly an awesome find. I'll definitely be looking to repeat next year.
To help others out, I'll try to be thorough.
Location: It was near the Padre BLVD end of the block but really not that far a walk to the beach. For beach access, we used the Wanna Wanna bar access at the end of Polaris. This was very nice to have as a lot of other streets that dead end into Gulf Rd didn't look like they had beach access right there and you'd have to go further up or down to get to the beach. Speaking of Wanna Wanna, get the Turbo Pina Colada; Delicious. The Condo was also right across the street from a gas station for convenient ice, snacks, and drinks.
Only possible con here if it... more
