“Nice place just dont go when they have red tide”
Reviewed December 26, 2011

Nice place and, the staff was very nice and accomadating. Unfortunately we went in October when they had red tide. The red tide made your eyes water and nose run and made you feel very uncomfortable. We had to leave after one day. We would love to give this another try, just at a time when there is no Red Tide

I will be at this hotel next time I come to south padre island. They accepted dogs, so that's a winner, however I think the $50 pet fee was a little much. The rooms were great had a awesome view of the beach. I noticed they didn't have a microwave in the room, so I walked downstairs with my daughters bottle, and they offered to bring a microwave to my room, which was very nice of them. The only other two things I disliked was $50/ hold each night you stayed there on the credit card, and all inputs were disabled on the tv. Meaning you can not hook up your ps3 to the tv because the hdmi port on the tv was disabled. But overall I really enjoyed staying at this hotel, I will be there again next year. With the $50 hold on the credit card they allow you to use that hold towards any room service or dining at the hotel, but it is a bit over priced. The chicken nachos are out of this world by the way.

I've been a frequent visitor since The Pearl South was the Sheraton. I've never had any problems with the customer service at the front desk or the bellhop. A few times they have gone above and beyond to please me and my family. Everytime I visit my home town of Brownsville we stay at the Pearl. Seeing the same wonderful staff that I've known over the past 12 years makes me feel like I'm coming home.

Keep up the good work Pearl South staff. See you soon..

Everytime we go, we're always treated like we are extremely special and they never let us down. When we go we feel like we can just relax, enjoy our stay and they take special care of us at all times. This time, we decided to take our dog, Eva, and everyone welcomed her as well. It's a GREAT place to go and vacation...

The Pearl and all of their employees “GET IT”
Checked in on the pool side neighbors were doing a little jack hammering LOL.
What will be the response from the front desk? Asked if it would be ok to move to the opposite side and higher up. My time is valuable to me so I will make this quick.
A: The front desk gets it.
B: Help gets it
C: everybody gets it
D: You get it stay here.
Just after I took the time to write this I noticed the shower didn’t work correctly as it needed a new plunger for correct water flow to the shower head. I called the front desk and before I could get back to the door they were there fixed it in about 50 seconds.
Clean 3.5 star hotels excellent off season rates long term employees did I mention they get it????

Room Tip: Stay here.

The hotel is one of the nicer places on the beach and is located closer to the water than any of the other hotels.
It is not quite a four star experience; but if you are looking for a step up from the average in South Padre than the Pearl would be ideal for you.

My boyfriend and I decided that we needed to take a vacation together for the first time for our one year anniversary. I was a bit skeptical about staying at the Pearl because of the reviews, but followed my instinct instead. Upon arrival, a very kind bellhop escorted us to our room, taking care of our luggage and speaking of all the amenities the Pearl had to offer. Once we arrived to our room, my eyes lit up with the beauty of the room and it's location. We were placed above the restaurant, but that did not matter because we were there to relax and not worry about the little things. The room, the pool, the service, the access to beach, and the food were all fantastic in my book. We will definitely come back to the Pearl.
