“Very nice family beach location”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

We spent Easter weekend down at Port Aransas and stayed at Coral Cay for our first time. The unit was very clean and nicely furnished. The grounds and pools were well maintained. The front desk folks were nice, although we had no issues, so that made things easier. We walked from the down town area to the complex (a decent walk), so location is convenient. We will most definitely visit Coral Cay again.

Room Tip: Look at site map before choosing room. One building close to beach and two others to choose from.

I was shocked at some of the negative reviews. We go at least twice a year and the units, pool and landscaping are clean and well kept. We love the short walk to an uncrowned beach. We usually decline daily cleaning, but housekeeping still calls and offers to clean. I like the wholesome family atmosphere.

Room Tip: We always stay in the 200's which has a front view of pool we like and back view Of beach and o...

Stayed here for the second time, the weekend of Aug. 5-7. We love the proximity of this property to the beach, and we like the fact the rooms have full kitchens stocked with dishes, utensils, etc. We have found the rooms to be clean and comfortable during both of our stays here. We did have a few maintenance issues with the air conditioning and the in-room phone. After reporting, the AC concern was quickly addressed Sat. morning, and whatever the guys did seemed to improve the cooling power. At least while we were still in the room. After returning from our afternoon at the beach, the AC was back to its shenanigans and wouldn't cool the unit more than 78 degrees. Now I am fully aware that South Texas heat is quite Africa-like in August and the draw on central AC units is considerable. Our family is just accustomed to cooler indoor temps, especially at night. Having said that, it was not unbearable, just a bit uncomfortable. However, this was the only flyspeck on an otherwise enjoyable stay at Coral Cay. We do look forward to staying here again.

My family and I have been going to Coral Cay every year for the past eight years. Except past year. We have stayed in all the room types offered at Coral Cay as our family has grown since we began making yearly trips down to Port A. Their rooms have always been clean and right on the beach and we have been satisfied. However, last year they were booked because we procrastinated in making reservations and sadly rented a beachhouse from another company. The trip was a great one but this year we returned to Coral Cay and were so very disappointed!

After spending the previous year with all the space of the beach house and amenities (such as working tv's) we won't be returning to Coral Cay anymore. As soon as we checked in this year problems came. We had two TVs not in working order, one of which was made in 1981 and had no cable hook up because of when it was made! They fixed out TVs and then the air conditioner was running cool air but didn't cool down our condo. The kitchen was tiny and when we asked for a cleaning in the middle of the week we were asked repeatedly if we were sure we wanted it. The staff got onto us for feeding the birds from our patio which is something we have done every year.

If you can rent a beach house do it! It's worth the money to have the space and friendly staff!

We really enjoyed our stay, we stayed in a 2 bedroom 2 level condo with gulf view. The beach was only a boardwalk short walk away. You could hear the waves but the roaring didn't keep you awake at night. The condo was pretty nice, nothing plush. We have stayed in nicer ones which probably spoiled us. It smelled terribly musty when we first arrived but after spraying febreze liberally throughout, the smell disappeared. Also, the condo we had needed to replace all of their blinds. In the girls bedroom, the window was right where people walked and there were broken blinds so the girls had to dress in the bathroom. In our bedroom, the vertical blinds didn't work at all. My husband managed to get them open (we paid extra for the gulf view!!) then we closed the hurricane shutter on the outside deck at night so we could sleep in. There is construction going on at the resort but it was far away from us at other buildings. Port Aransas was a nice little town, we found it when we last stayed at North Padre Island. Laid back, lots of interesting restaurants and bars, loved the beaches. At the ship channel and the ferry crossing, we watched dolphins playing in the water!!

We have stayed at the Coral Cay Condos several times now and always have a great experience. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the beach is only a short walk away. The pools are great and the staff is always very friendly and helpful. We also love having a full kitchen so we can bring food with us and cook some of our meals while there. Our 5 year old son loves going to the beach and never wants to leave!!

1. Toilet leak (issue resolved immediately)
2. Patio view of port-a-potty, construction trailer, and generators
3. 70s decor - place was outdated
4. Air hammer and air saw morning wake-up call

Overall, the stay was fine and service was decent. The biggest disappointment - no one informed us of the early morning construction that would jolt us out of bed.
