“Excellent Place to Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2012 via mobile

Some friends and I decided to go to South Padre for spring break and staying at the Pearl had to have been one of the best decions we made. The staff was incredibly helpful and nice. The view was unbelivable and the pool was awesome. The beds were really comfortable. All in all we had the experience of our lives. I will definitely be coming back to the Pearl everytime I come back to South Padre.

Stayed March 2012

We stayed in Gulf View II room 111, nice place. Enjoyed the stay a lot. Will say that the pool area wasn't as clean as it should be...but in all had a great time! Will be going again!

First they charge a hundred dollars for deposit, fine, then there is an additional forty dollars charge for basic cleaning then boom the rest of the amount for staying there - total for 2 nights was $544.05. We stayed in room 202 it had the convenience of dishes to cook there but the shower was backed up soooooo gross. That in itself is inconvenient to have to call someone to fix. I am a neat freak, I made sure the place stayed as neat as possible I swept picked up all the trash, washed all the dishes cleaned with a rag the countertops, tables, etc. All I left was the trashbags (didn't know where to throw the big bags) and beds unmade. Well they didn't return my deposit claiming the place was filthy. In short they are thieves and liars.

We have stayed in several units at Gulf View One. Our favorites are 512 and 612 they both are 2 bedrooms 2 bath. Gives us some privacy from kids!! The condos were clean staff was great. We enjoy the savings , price was much better and by booking directley from the condo we saved even more. There is a big difference in Gulfview Two and Gulfview One. We dont stay at Two only One. We have stayed in several condos on SPI before finding Gulfview One. Best wishes for a safe and Happy Holiday Season.

  • Liked — its clean ,price is great ,good location
  • Disliked — the internet service

We stayed at the Gulfview II in room 301. It is an efficiency condo with one queen bed and a pull-out sofa. Condo was clean. The complex has a huge pool. Nothing fancy, but nice. There is no office on site but we had no problems so it didn't really matter. I paid $450 for a week in July. The condo was excellent considering the price. We were a 5 minute walk to the beach. Condo is located beside the Holiday Inn Sunspree.

  • Liked — Price and location
  • Disliked — No washer and dryer; had to use laundry located in building

Gulfview II condo was nice and was clean. Pool was large but didn't get cleaned often, there was hair on the bottom of the pool that kept getting tangled around our feet and this happened for several days. Beach was a short walk away. Did not go during a party time but still didn't get much sleep. Other guests were very loud. Don't stay close to #212. They like to yell on their balcony at 3:30 am every morning. They woke up both of my kids; when my husband asked them to quiet down the guy got really nasty and stated that he owned his condo, so he could do what he wanted. The walls are thin so we could hear people 2 condos down from us shouting. Not sure if we are just used to living in the burbs but don't go expecting a relaxing, quiet time.
