My husband and I stayed three nights in a suite with a balcony. The view was awesome and the location is perfect. The hotel is somewhat dated, but it is clean and comfortable. The hotel staff were so friendly. They probably still remember my husband because he was constantly talking to them. We would normally go out to dinner, but...

I love your comments about the staff, Hotel, and Restaurant. We do concentrate on our Food and Beverage offerings, which tends to be an afterthought with some hotels. Our Restaurant is its own entity and competes with all the standalone places here on South Padre Island, our Hotel has the best views on South Padre Island from every room, and...

I appreciate you taking the time to review the Pearl South Padre Hotel. I'm glad to hear that you loved your rooms and close by amenities. Some times when a guest leaves the balcony door open it takes a while for the A/C to cool the room back down. We do also have Engineering staff that can fix these issues...

Nice hotel located beach front. The rooms were a bit dated but maintained each room had a balcony and beach view. Staff were friendly and helpful. We were there off season and had the place mostly to ourselves. The pool was very large and relaxing. There was a very nice outdoor beach front bar nearby, only a short walk on...

The off-Season is a great time to be on South Padre Island. The weather is still nice for the most part and the amenities are still available. We do seat people on our restaurant patio year long as an outdoor option as well. Please keep that in mind for your next visit as well. We look forward to having with...

Like most beach hotels, the ambiance was welcoming and soothing. I've always loved staying at any of the Pearl Hotels because they are usually well maintained, cleaned and the food is good. However, the only reason I did not give them the highest rating is due to the check in/out personnel at my arrival. The gentleman seemed upset and wasn't...

Thank you for staying with here at the Pearl South Padre. I will be sure to bring up your issue with our Front Desk team, we have had some new employees recently and they are still "training" and learning the Pearl culture, he could have also been a little nervous as well working on a new computer system.

The Pearl was one of two hotels we stayed at while on South Padre. It appears to be an older hotel but in mostly good condition. I have several dislikes concerning this property. First, complementary breakfast is not included and if you eat in the hotel dining room it can be very expensive. Second, there is no complementary coffee available...

We stayed at the Pearl from 2/21-2/28 and were glad to be there before the spring breakers. Check in was great as we got in early and not all rooms were ready. We had a group of 17 people in 5 rooms so it was quite a task to get us all taken care of. Cindy was amazing and worked...

Sounds like you got the full experience of our Hotel. From the Ocean View Condos to the outside Palapa Bar, and especially the staff.

We just spent 4 nights at The Pearl and loved the proximity to the beach. The beautiful pool was cold but the pool bar water was warmer which is why it had many more people in it. And although we requested a king room, we got one with 2 double beds. However, we decided to just go with it and...

Thank you for staying here at the Pearl South Padre. We are located conveniently close to the causeway and close to almost everything else here on the South Padre, but then again the Island is only about 5 miles long from end to end so everything seems close.

I was coming to Brownsville to visit my cousin and she recommended that I stay at the Pearl since it was a "nice" hotel.

Off Season is the best time to enjoy the Pearl South Padre Hotel and South Padre Island as a whole. There are less people on the Island, Room rates are always competitive, and the Pearl Pool Area get great sun and is perfect for laying out to get a tan. That's a quick way to make the buddies in the...
