Spring break refuge for couple

My wife and I really want to go to a beach/pool resort/hotel. Mid-March is the only time we can go. Is there any place on South Padre that will not be full of college kids. No aversion to parties, etc, but looking for an older crowd. Any help would be appreciated.

Only one place comes to mind that I don't think takes Breakers...the Palms Resort. It's small, has a pool, restaurant/bar and is right on the beach. Any of the large resort-type full-amenity hotels will be filled with students that time of March. Before that and a week or two after, not so much anymore. I believe March 12th is the start of Spring Break for most Texas colleges and several others and that is "prime time". You might call the South Padre Island Visitors Bureau at (956)761-6433 and ask for some places which don't accept Breakers. I know there are some more.

the Embassy or Edgewater condos are non Spring Break property. We stayed at the Embassy last year with our pre-school grandchildren. It was quiet and not crowded at the condo and on the beach.. Most people staying there are Winter Texans, 50+ on up. check pirentals.com/properties/beach-front-propert… for more info.
