“Enjoyed our stay!”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

I recently stayed with my family at the Suntide III and was very pleased with the unit. We had a 3 bdrm unit on the 6th floor. It was very comfortable. My only complaint was that we could here doors being opened and closed in units next to us and above us. However, you can't beat the view and easy access to the beach. All in all, we had a great time. I would definitely stay there again.

Don't expect parking-there isn't any.. dirty floors-we cleaned them ourselves.. shower drains don't work-we stood in dirty bath water up to our shins.. balcony rocker and chaise lounge broken-yet we are blamed and charged.. Rosa the supervisor-calls and insists that we broke the chairs but if she was doing her job as she claims she was then surely she would notice as she was about to tumble out of the rocker onto the concrete floor (as I almost did) that the chair was cracked and broken before we ever arrived.. the lounge chair will send you straight to the concrete floor (no tumble required) since it is broken right where your bottom hits the plastic cross pieces.. advice-check everything before you touch anything-as you will be the one blamed..since Rosa is too busy plotting her next victim to ever notice the crime has already taken place!! BTW-we stayed in condo #307

Although we loved our condo here there are a couple of definite flaws with this complex. For the price you are paying there should be a few amenities included. First and foremost...there is NO maid service. I have stayed in condos all over the Caribbean and never paid this price and had no maid service....no garbage pick up.....no towels delivered ever. You have to "collect" fresh towels on the 9th floor in a two-three hour window daily or you are out of luck for fresh towels. This time period is 9-11am. It is vacation.....you are either trying to sleep in or gather your belongings for the beach...but wait...we have to get fresh towels!!!! We ended up washing our own in the washer/dryer there. Also again....when I am on vacation I do not enjoy taking out the garbage....I do that at home...I expect more on vacation especially when I am paying the rates they charge. Also, there were no extra rolls of toilet paper or paper towels....two calls to the front desk yielded nothing so when we were out that evening we bought our own. It has the potential to be a wonderful place but they need to make some changes.

Our condo # 508 was decorated very nicely, was very roomy. The balcony was wide and had a wonderful view. The elevator was close proximity to the pool and front desk so it made it very nice if you were just running down to get something or going to the pool. I would stay there again!
Only thing was after 11 pm, they padlock the gate to the boardwalk to the beach and you have to walk all the way around the whole property to go through the front office to get back in. The pools are nice, and the Jacuzzi was very hot, which was great.

This was our first trip to South Padre Island and it was absolutely wonderful! We really enjoyed Suntide III - super convenient location, close to just about everything... walked out the back of the building to the beach, great fun at the pools, and very friendly staff. Ample parking and loved the grocery carts available for hauling all our stuff upstairs to the most fabulous condo ever! We stayed in Condo 1105 - a beautiful Tuscan get-away! Its a 3BR/3BA Penthouse with an incredible view. We vacationed with another family for a total of 8 people (adults, teens, and kids) and we had tons of room. The condo is decorated so beautifully, rooms are spacious and very comfortable, the bathrooms are updated and roomy (especially the incredibly decadent master bath) and their are tons of extras all around. It was a very relaxing perfect getaway.

Room Tip: We loved 1105!

We stayed in Unit 1208 for the 2nd time in three years. It is a nice 3 Br 3 Ba unit with nice updated kitchen. The location of the frig in relation to the pantry is quite inconvenient, but you can manage. The bathrooms need to be updated, but the rest of the unit is very nice. The staff is very nice & accommodating and they are on site if you need them. We weren't told that we needed to bring toilet paper if we ran out, so that was an inconvenience at night having to go to the store & buy more, but at least the Island Market is only 2 blks. away. There are 3 bathrooms with a hair dryer in each, so no need to bring your hair dryer. The unit has soap & shampoo in the bathrooms for your use. The complex has a nice indoor pool and large outdoor pool. Music at the pool was little loud for me, but they turned it down when asked. Your towels can be exchanged each day between 10 & 12 AM. They have beach chairs & umbrellas & canopies for rent. The staff puts them up for you. All in all, this is a great place to stay at South Padre.

I stayed with my family in a corner unit 3 bedroom/3 bath condo on the 3rd floor. The rooms were spacious and had all the bedding needed for a comfortable stay. We especially enjoyed the large kitchen with the extra large bar for food preparation and eating around the bar. There were plenty of dishes, pots and pans, bowls, silverware etc. We really loved having a washer/dryer in our unit. We took advantage of the grills that could be reserved for grilling down in the pretty, well-maintained yard area. My grandchildren really enjoyed playing kickball and basketball on the tennis courts that were on level 3 just outside our condo. But those same courts are one of the reasons I gave this 4 stars instead of 5. Older teens stayed out on the courts, hanging out and making lots of noise until @ 11:00 each night, which was a problem when we were trying to get our young grandchildren to bed at a decent time. The beach access was also a little difficult, with one access point requiring us to walk through a parking lot and the other access at the opposite end of the building required going through the main lobby of the complex. We used a cart to transport towels, toys, food, etc. to the beach, and had to pick it up to get down a couple sets of steps in the lobby. They also had problems with one set of elevators while we were there, causing the other elevators to be very slow. But all in all, it was a great place to stay, and the people at the front desk were friendly and helpful. We had a fantastic time!

Room Tip: Stay somewhere other than the 3rd floor due to noise from tennis courts.
