We just spent 4 nights at The Pearl and loved the proximity to the beach. The beautiful pool was cold but the pool bar water was warmer which is why it had many more people in it. And although we requested a king room, we got one with 2 double beds. However, we decided to just go with it and...

Thank you for staying here at the Pearl South Padre. We are located conveniently close to the causeway and close to almost everything else here on the South Padre, but then again the Island is only about 5 miles long from end to end so everything seems close. We do try to honor all requests but due to inventory we...

I was coming to Brownsville to visit my cousin and she recommended that I stay at the Pearl since it was a "nice" hotel. I must say that I totally followed her lead and didn't research any other hotels or even check prices at the other hotels. I went to the Pearl website and since it looked nice and I...

Off Season is the best time to enjoy the Pearl South Padre Hotel and South Padre Island as a whole. There are less people on the Island, Room rates are always competitive, and the Pearl Pool Area get great sun and is perfect for laying out to get a tan. That's a quick way to make the buddies in the...

Brunch here is the best. Came down with some friends for the best brunch ever. Jorge Garcia made our brunch so memorable. Need more fantastic servers like him! Next time we come, we'll definitely be calling ahead to ensure Jorge Garcia is our server.

Just got back from a wonderful five day stay at the Pearl! Prior to our visit I was concerned by the reviews, but my visit converted me to this property. We stayed on the sixth floor in a king room, with a view of pool area, beach and daily sunrise from our balcony. The room was attractive. The bed was...

From you review it sounds like you were able to experience most of what the Pearl South Padre has to offer. I wish that you were able to be here when the outside Palapa Bar is open. Right now we are opening it on the Weekends, Weather permitting, and Tony makes the best drinks. You have to try the Tony's...

I understand what some people have posted about the rust in the rooms... the metal fixtures and lampshades did have very visible rust, but the air is very moist there and with the salt in the air I do imagine it's hard to keep that under control. The beds and pillows were very comfortable and the service was courteous. It...

Let me start by saying the manager of the Pearl was very helpful. But from the start our reservations were a mess. Double check before you leave. The mishaps were corrected. The beds are not comfortable. But the rooms are clean. The resort is clean also. Overall a nice place to stay.

I have stayed at the Pearl twice in the last two weeks. The negative - this is a beach hotel. There may be a little sand around, there may be a little rust here and there, there may be a small musky smell from time to time. This only happens to EVERY hotel on the beach anywhere.... Good - awesome...
