Suntide III Condominiums
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 30, 2013

Our family stayed in room 403. The unit was wonderful. The balcony view was beautiful and seemed to always have the perfect breeze. The elevator was convenient to where the unit was located. I loved the full-size fridge, very up to date and spacious. The bar area in the kitchen opened up the entire room to make you feel a part of everything going on from the balcony and living space. The showers in the 3 full bathrooms were very convenient when coming back from the beach to get everyone cleaned up quickly. Even with the towel service, having a washer and dryer was also a big plus. I could not believe how many towels we went through. The 4 big flat screens (3 bedrooms, plus living room) were also very nice to have. The indoor pool and hot tub came in handy at night. Beds were comfortable. Kitchen was great with huge marble counter. Very comfortable, well appointed furniture. Overall, we could not have been more pleased. Coming from San Antonio, we were not sure if we wanted make the long drive to South Padre or just head to Rockport. After staying here, there is no question we made the correct decision. Suntide III unit 403 will be where we stay on our next beach vacation.

We stayed in Room 1208 recently and the condo was beautiful. It was very spacious and decorated wonderfully. The view is outstanding and the nice leather couches were very relaxing after a day on the beach. I forgot to pack my hairdryer, so I was very pleased to find a hairdryer in every bathroom. Our stay was very enjoyable because of the lovely unit. I definitely recommend staying in room 1208.

We stayed in unit #603 beginning 8/12/13 for three nights. The unit has been upgraded as website shows. Nice leather furniture in living room, wet bar, quality tile and trim work.

A few issues need attention:

Kitchen: dirty sponge provided (each guest should start w/ a clean sponge!); disposal doesn't work; no hot pads provided; dishwasher smells when opened and when we ran it, it smelled up the whole kitchen; oven control settings are worn off oven; need new potato peeler; need better knives; baking pans were rusty (although kitchen was well stocked w/ pots and pans-I had three stock pots going one day).

It takes a long time for the water to get hot in unit. A lot of water is wasted this way.

Hall bath: needs stopper for tub. Also the two doors (door from hall and door to bedroom) get stuck on each other and are chipping. Pocket door would make more sense.

Master bedroom outlet behind nightstand (near bathroom) doesn't work. (I think one socket worked and the other didn't)

The only thing that I was really disappointed in and would make me look for a different unit next time is the master shower. It looks nice in the photo, but is not practical. It's large, but has no shower bench or seat. It has a rain shower head in the middle of the ceiling over shower and a wall mount shower head. They both come on when the shower is turned on, so you better be planning on getting your hair wet. Also, makes it hard to shave your legs. Rain shower washes off shaving cream and there is no place to prop leg up or sit!

Suntide III is closer to the beach than many condos/hotels in the area which is nice. If you are pool people, though, the pool is a bit small.

I thought the front desk personnel could have been more personable. The guy sounded like a robot reciting rules.

Suggestion: if you're coming from Austin/San Antonio area stay at least 4 nights - it's a long drive!

Our family stayed at the Suntide III between 8/14 and 8/17/13. Overall, our experience was enjoyable and very nice. We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom unit on the 6th floor with a very nice view of the Gulf. Sure was nice waking up each morning to beautiful sunrises and watching the sun go down at night. The unit was very well equipped with the creature comforts of home and spacious enough for our party of six. I would have rated this review a "5" except for the fact that every time someone took a shower the tub would fill up with water to your ankles. Hopefully, management is reading these reviews and will have that problem corrected. Other than that, the condo was perfect for our stay. Personnel at the front desk were accomodating, friendly, and professional. They provided us with a briefing of what we could expect during our stay to include the do's and don't's and rules while staying in this facility. Overall, the building, grounds, and beach area in front of the condo unit was very well maintained and free of litter and debris. We will definitely consider staying at the Suntide III on our next visit to South Padre Island.

Room Tip: If you are interested in a room with a central location and view of the beach then consider a high f...

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.
