Pearl South Padre
Reviewed August 4, 2014

The staff was tentative and very friendly! Everything we needed or wanted was there. We have toddlers and a teenager and all had fun. The beach access is convenient and easy. Loved be able to take the kids to the beach and the pool with no problems. The restaurant staff was fantastic as well. We're planning to visit the Pearl again soon.

My wife and I stayed here for a week and thoroughly enjoyed the friendly staff and fine dining which was comparable to local restaurants. We took advantage of the beach chair and umbrella setup service from Sonny's beach service on site.

This was our 9th stay at the Pearl and we will return again. Customer service makes this hotel worth staying at. The breakfast wait staff and the ladies working in the gift shop are priceless. Rooms are pricey but the staff out weighs the cost.

We stayed at the Pearl two nights for a conference. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the food was good and the meeting rooms were fine. We had a nice view from our gulf-side room on the sixth floor. Only complaint would be the place could use a coat of paint all around. I guess beach properties take a beating!

We purchased the water park and romance package. It was wonderful. Since there was a room available we were able to check in early and enjoy about 8 hours at the water park. Upon return to the room our roses and chocolate covered strawberries awaited. It was wonderful. We had a partial view of the beach and an amazing view of the bay and causeway.

My husband was going to be staying at the Pearl South Padre for a business trip and I thought I might go with him and spend some time at the beach. I started reading reviews on trip advisor and there were so many bad reviews that I started thinking about not going. But I decided if things were as bad as people wrote, then I could just spend my time at the beach. I must say that the Pearl exceeded my expectations. When we checked in, we were given a room on the 3rd floor. We went to our room. I stepped out on the balcony to look at the view which was a beautiful view of the beach. However, there was a horrible smell. I looked and there was a huge dumpster directly below our room. Since I planned to spend time on the balcony, we asked to be moved because of the smell. The staff was very accommodating and gave us choices of several rooms. We moved to the pool side of the hotel. Another beautiful view of the pool area and the beach. As many reviews have reported the condition of the hotel is dated. There are stains on walls and ceiling, some mold growing on balcony in corners, and the balcony furniture was rusted and torn. However, if you can look beyond these things, you will find a decent hotel. All staff at the hotel was very friendly. The pool was always clean and the only trash around the pool was due to guests that were too lazy to pick up their own cans, etc... (It amazes me that tourists think that they should be waited on by everyone else and they can be as messy and trashy as they want). The bottom of the pool was chipping in areas, but not so bad that it would interfere with your time in the pool. The close proximity to the beach and the easy access was a huge benefit. Showers are available to guests coming in from the beach. Also there are towels for the pool area that you can get as soon as you walk out of the hotel to the pool. There are 3 elevators in the hotel that were working the entire time we were there and did not have to wait more that a minute or two even with a completely full hotel. The breakfast is delicious. I am not sure how much it is as one night the fire alarm went off in our room and under our door the next morning were 2 coupons for free breakfast. I would recommend this hotel to my friends. You have to realize that this is not the "Ritz" and if you are expecting 5 star service and accommodations then you need to pay for them and go somewhere else. I think you will be presently surprised if you choose to stay here. Even though the hotel is dated, it still has a lot of amenities going for it.
