Recent South Padre Island reviews

  • Great location, awesome views, comfortable home

    "This 7th floor condo has awesome views of both the gulf beach and the bay. You can follow the sun from one of the multiple balconies or the extra large terrace. The windows are huge so there are great views from every room. I like the big open concept kitchen/dining/living room. The bedrooms are far enough away from the living space that they are very quiet. Each bedroom has its own in-room bathroom for maximum privacy. The kitchen has plenty of dishes, cooking utensils, a dishwasher, and of course a view! The building is located where the action is on SPI so you can walk to many restaurants. There's a path directly to the beach. The facilities have an extra large hot tub, a heated pool, and a gym. I can't wait to go back next year!"

  • We WILL Be Back!

    "Don't listen to Disappointed. The wifi worked just fine when we connected to the correct network. There IS a washer and dryer in a closet next to the sink in the master bath. The patio furniture was in excellent shape and it was comfortable. He WAS correct when he stated the place was clean. The pictures accurately show the condo, it's contents, and the views from its 12th floor balcony. It's on the top floor of the building, so it was very quiet. The complex is also clean and well maintained. We were pleased to find that one of the poolside bars was still open in September (a shoutout to Shannon the bartender). We are already planning our next stay here."

  • One of the best on the Island!

    "My family has been to South Padre Island many times over the past ten years. I am VERY picky about where we stay and this condo met all my requirements and more! It has been updated in the way of granite counters in the kitchen and gorgeous tile showers. The location is right on the beach, with a beautiful ocean view. The furniture was comfortable, especially the sectional couch! And, it had a full-size washer and dryer. But it gets even better! You never know how clean some of these rentals will be and this one was spotless! The location in the building was perfect. The third floor was an easy stair climb so we didn't have to use the elevator, and we were not near the elevator, nor directly above the pool which keeps down outside noise. The beach toys, chairs, umbrella, boogie boards and even a skim board were available to guests, better than any other rental I've seen. We never used the grill, but there was a nice one on the patio. Also, my kids found the tennis racquets and we actually hit the court a couple of times, much to their delight. And, Jodi's kitchen was well-stocked as well. She even supplied paper towels, garbage bags, toilet paper, laundry soap and shower gel. In the master bath, a cabinet held bandaids, a blow dryer--I forgot mine there, so now there's two :) and other items that she supplied or were left by previous residents, such as aloe vera gel for sunburn, hair moisturizer, new toothbrushes, etc. These might be things left by other guests, but it speaks well for the owners and their guests. But I digress. I feel that I will no longer be able to stay at any other South Padre Island property than this one. I just don't think I will find one that measure's up to the same quality and value. My family had a wonderful time, the weather was perfect. Having a perfect place to sleep and relax made everything even better. We will be back!"

  • Thanksgiving Stay

    "It was a very peaceful Thanksgiving. Much needed rest and relaxing time. The kitchen has everything. We were able to use the hot tub and heated pool. A little cool some days but a great day for a brisk walk on the beach. I would use again. It is beautifully decorated and comfortable. Forgot I was away from home. Fantastic Thanksgiving buffet in the restaurant next door. Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo."

South Padre Island Travel Tips

South Padre Island is located on a long strip of island at the very southern tip of Texas and has beautiful natural landscapes, year-round attractions and events that visitors from spring breakers to families will enjoy.

Nature Attractions

South Padre Island boasts several opportunities to immerse yourself in natural beauty and learn about the delicate coastal ecosystem:

Sea Turtle Inc. is located at the end of Padre Boulevard near the convention center. It is a conservation center committed to protecting all sea turtle species. Kids can learn how to identify each type of sea turtle, take part in crafts and learn about conservation efforts. If you’re here in the spring, this is a must-visit for watching as sea turtles hatch and are released into the wild.

The Dolphin Research and Sea Life Nature Center, located across the bridge on Port Isabel, is another great spot for kids and adults to learn about Gulf Coast sea life. You can get up close and personal with hermit crabs and starfish, or take a boat tour to see some dolphins. While you’re nearby, check out the Port Isabel Lighthouse.

Take a walk on the Laguna Madre Nature Trail, a stunning, 1,500 foot marshland boardwalk, to see coastal birds and get some exercise and head to the nearby Birding and Nature Center as well.

Beach Activities and Watersports

South Padre island is abundant in outdoor sports and activities. Here are some of the best:

- Take a sandcastle building lesson from Boomerang Billy’s on the beach.

- Visit Schiltterbahn Beach Waterpark on the southern end of the island. This sandcastle themed waterpark is a kid’s paradise.

- Visit the 40-acre Adventure Park at the end of Park Road on Laguna Madre Bay to rent ATVs to cruise along the beach.

- Ride horses along the scenic beach with the Island Equestrian Center - both amateurs and experienced riders are welcome.

- Take a boat cruise. Head out on The Original Dolphin Watch, take a cruise with Isla Tours, or take a sunset, snorkeling or dinner cruise with Southern Wave Sailing Charters. You can also rent paddleboats and kayaks from this watersports shop, located on the west side of the island off of Laguna Madre Bay, between the popular Tequila Sunset and Louie’s Backyard bar and grills.

Dining Options

South Padre Island has plenty ofcasual beach fare and local seafood options.

- For beachside casual fare, head to brightly decorated Pier 19 Restaurant, grab fried shrimp at Dirty Al’s on the Marina, check out Coconuts Bar & Grill off of Laguna Boulevard or hang out at Wanna-Wanna Beach Bar & Grill on the east side of the island.

- Grab a local brew and excellent burger at Padre Island Brewing Company

- The best spot for upscale dining in South Padre Island is the Sea Ranch Restaurant, which offers fresh seafood dishes and pretty harbor views.


In the first weekend of October each year, South Padre Island celebrates the annual Sand Castle Days, a 3-day event where you can watch master sand sculptors from around the world compete to turn sand into stunning works of art. There’s an amateur contest and arts and crafts for kids. Clayton’s Beach Bar and Grill hosts the event.

If you visit in December, don’t miss the Christmas Lighted Boat Parade. Locals dress their boats with Christmas lights and parade from Pirates Landing in Port Isabel to Jim’s Pier on South Padre Island. You’ll see everything from yachts to kayaks in this annual competition and winter celebration.
