“One of the best places to stay on SPI”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Our family has been coming to SPI for 25years. We used to rent a condo when our 4 boys came here with us. Our sons are grown now and my husband and I still love to come to SPI. The Pearl at South Padre is our favorite place to stay. We have tried others and only stayed for one night and ran over to the Pearl. The rooms are very clean- food is fantastic and the staff is very caring and helpful. If we have a little problem or need something it is taken care off right away. The Sunday brunch is the best and we have never had bad food or bad service. Everyone tries very hard to make you feel happy. We will be back and we recommend the Pearl highly.

Room Tip: We love the corner units and units with full kitchen. If you are staying with kids or for longer it...

This hotel is awesome, clean, right by the beach! The staff is excellent! The best hotel I have ever stayed by the beach! They have a bar by the heated pool, excellent food and drinks! It is quite to sleep and it is very close, walking distance from the bars and restaurants, from pier 19 and schilliter bahn park!

Room Tip: All rooms seem excelent!

My family and I spent July 21st and 22nd here. We loved it and hope to return.
Pros:
1. EVERYONE was nice and friendly here.
2. We arrived earlier than anticipated, but were given bracelets and told to enjoy the pool and beach until our room was ready.
3. LOCATION! The beach was super close to the hotel. It was not crowded and very clean. The pool was large and clean. There were plenty of lounge chairs around the pool in/out of the shade. It was also open 24 hours. I felt comfortable, relaxed, and truly on vacation..
4. The room we were given had a beautiful balcony and view. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was spacious. We also had a refrigerator.
5.The hotel is right next door to Schlitterbahn.
Cons
1. The hotel halls really need to be updated. The bathrooms could use a little updating too--especially the showerhead.
2. You can take a cooler to the beach, but cannot take one to the pool. If you do, then you will be asked to remove your cooler from the area. They should just charge everyone a one time $10 cooler fee and be done with it.
3. The poolside bar and grill prices were too high. I didn't see anyone using the bar/grill to purchase anything. They would do better to serve $2 hot dogs and everyone would have purchased those. Most families cannot afford 8$ nachos.
4. Teenage son said that pull out sofa bed was very uncomfortable, but who cares. He got to go to SPI! :)
5. The room did not have a microwave.

Other helpful hints: (1) Book online. We paid almost $100 less per night than some of the other visitors. (2) Take your own canopy and chairs to the beach. If not, then you will have to rent. While the lounge chairs may be worth it, the umbrellas didn't seem large enough to cover much. (3) Always say thank you. The employees here seem to work really hard and are some of the friendliest folks I've ever met. :) I hope that you enjoy your stay here as much as my family did.

Room Tip: You want a room with a poolside/ocean view.

Terrible. Moved to a cleaner room upon arrival. Hotel has seen better days (10 years ago). AC lines dripped into bathroom from ceiling. Ceiling lid below AC came down on us while in shower. AC grills are molded. Hotel carpets in hallways smell. This is a 1 star hotel at best. The staff are very nice unfortunately the hotel needs renovating. It is BAD! Never will go back!!

In July 2013 I stayed in this resort for 3 nights and totally loved my stay... The resort location is amazing, the swim bar is not so costly, the backyard is the beautiful beach with the tranquil gulf.. I am from California where the beaches are too crowded, water is cold and some parts are rocky. Other than the crowd parts everything else was so awesome... warm blue water, soft sands... what else you can need...?
The room is however is smaller compared to the price paid.... anyway other than the cost factor the sheer location only made me rejuvenated....

Room Tip: Beach facing room would be a plus...
