"My husband and I took our 5 boys to SPI for a week and had the best vaca ever! The condo was so much better then described- In fact the pictures do not do it justice! It was beautiful and had everything we needed plus some. But the very best part was the view, whether your at the front door, balcony, windows, or roof top, it was absolutely breathtaking. The rooftop is actually what sold this condo for us and it did not disappoint. The resort, was great! Three pools, 4 hot tubs, pool side bar, tennis courts, and beach access, we couldn't have asked for anything better. Mrs Kay, the owner, was very helpful and very friendly. We cannot wait till our next SPI vaca and well definitely be staying here."

"This was a beautiful condo. The rooms were spacious so our family of 5 had room to spread out. Everything was clean and the pantry well stocked with everything one could imagine needing. We appreciated the washer and dryer. It was quiet at night and the comfortable mattresses made for a great night sleep. We watched the sunrise from the balcony and loved the short walk to the beach. My daughter and I loved the sushi at Kohnami which is right in front of the condo building. It was our favorite place to eat. The rest of our crew loved Gabriella's pizza. We did not need to contact the owners for anything. They were well organized and had everything we could need and more! We'll look to book this condo for our next stay at SPI."

"We absolutely loved this condo. We go to South Padre every year but this is the first time staying at this location. We were able to bring my 88 year old mother in law since the unit is located on the ground floor. This was her first time at SPI and she loved sitting on the patio watching the waves. Spacious unit, great location, quick responses from owner during rental process. Awesome all the way around! We will definitely be back."

"5th floor corner unit right by the stairs. Elevator was also convenient as well as carts to load and unload. Easy beach access. Nice big grill on nice BIG balcony with great view overlooking swimming pools, tennis courts, and ocean. Nice balcony furniture – table/4 chairs, lounges (2) and regular chairs (2).
The unit is quite spacious – much bigger and nicer than photos depict. (and more natural light than photos.) Furniture and appliances are well maintained; in very good shape. Kitchen is well-stocked with utensils, dishes, glasses, pots, pans, even coffee filters, & sugar. (Also had hot pads & couple of kitchen towels.)
Nice beds and sheets (Someone’s earlier review in 2014 is no longer applicable though we came prepared with our own sheets if needed!) All plumbing worked well except master tub was alittle slow to drain.
Internet – not one for the unit itself – have to use the one for the entire complex. Good luck. We could never get it to connect – too much traffic? We found some other unsecured connections in the building but those were slow.
TV in living room is color but when use DVD, it is black & white!! No kidding. Two talented adult men worked hard to find a solution but couldn’t. No remote for the DVD.
No remote for the DVD in 2nd bedroom and TV reception is terrible.
No remote for the master bedroom TV and TV was stuck on Spanish station.
No utensils for the BBQ grill so bring your own for cooking (if you like them long) and a wire brush for cleaning. (We had to buy them in town at the grocery store – and didn’t leave them.) Note: Center burners on grill don’t light automatically.
Air flow in 2nd bedroom was poor – it was quite warm in there with the door closed so left it open which helped alittle. No ceiling fan – bring a floor fan! Rest of unit was quite comfortable.
A few light bulbs were burned out (no replacements) – and some light switches are a bit tricky in how they control lamps & fixtures.
As for swimming pools – rather small, crowded, and water temp too warm. Skip the pools and head to the beach or the tennis courts! (We brought our own rackets & balls.)
Host (Scott) was very responsive by email before we arrived and by text after we got there. Tried to help us with internet suggestions.
Definitely recommend this property and particularly this unit and host.
Suggestion for restaurant not on the beaten list: Cafe Kranzler (awesome menu and food, beautiful atmosphere, great staff)"
