Recent South Padre Island reviews

  • Highly Recommend

    "This condo was all that we expected it to be. Much to our sadness we were only there for 2 nights but that is all our schedule would allow. Bill was very accomodating with our schedule and it was a great pleasure to meet and visit with him. The pictures on the VRBO site describes the condo perfectly, it is a beautiful property, clean inside and out. The master bed was almost as comfortable as our bed at home which was a definite positive. If you are planning a trip to South Padre this is the perfect home away from home. Can't say how much we appreciate you Bill. Thank You so much!!!!"

  • Secure, right across from the beach,home away from home!

    "We stayed here for the week and it was just perfect. The security of the gate to all condos was very welcoming, as the island can be a frenzy of young people with too much alcohol on board. This back door is 5 steps away from the pool (not heated) and the hot tub with plenty of chairs. Directly across the street is a walkway to the beach. The location is really terrific. The condo has all amenities you would need, including a gas grill on the back patio. The photos are exactly what it looks like. Jay greeted us too with a fruit basket and tour of condo, numbers in case of emergency, list of restaurants etc. We ate out once as I love to cook, went to Sea Ranch. The food was good (not stellar) but quite pricey, I'm sure you could do better. I would highly recommend doing the horseback riding on the beach with Island Adventures, an excellent outing. We rented a tandem bike from Beach bikes on Padre, rent for 24 hours for $30 and $20 for single, definitely recommend, they pick up and deliver to your place. The original dolphin watch was great, saw many dolphin and the sea turtle hospital too, all very good! Thanks for a relaxing week."

  • Awesome!

    "Once again, we had a wonderful family vacation at your condo! Our children range from 12 to 21 and everyone had a great time. We reserved the theater, had manicures at the spa, played volleyball and washers on the beach and of course enjoyed the pool, hot tub, the ocean and Schlitterbahn. The condo had everything we needed from a fully stocked kitchen, to televisions in every room. We look forward to returning!"

  • Great Location

    "We were very happy with our stay here. The condo was comfortable and had everything we needed. Wifi worked fine, front desk staff were nice. We accidentally locked our key in the room after office hours and called an office number, we were let back in right away. Hardly a 5 min wait."

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.

Events

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.
