Wonderful space and awesome location--TLC needed
This was our first trip to South Padre Island. It was very easy to book the reservation and the reservation was confirmed quickly. We selected this unit over other less expensive ones because it showed better in pictures and had an ocean view. Loved the location of this condo and the easy access to the beach. Plus there was a great view of the condominium amenities and the ocean off of the balcony to enjoy with your morning coffee or evening cocktail! The unit itself was spacious enough for a small family, clean, and moderately decorated...will reconsider booking a unit that has a glass coffee table in the future. It was a better value than the available hotel rooms but not totally certain the $70 more than other available units was worth it.
The AC cooled the kitchen to the point that a long shirt or sweater was needed, while the rest of the unit was fairly warm in comparison. Multiple outlets were not functional and others barely allowed items to remain plugged in...not great when there are multiple phones, tablets, laptops etc. Being a little OCD about cleanliness it bothered me that the vacuum provided made lots of noise but barely had suction. Constantly running toilets were a bit annoying at night when interrupting sleep.
Not specific to the condo, but would recommend bringing drinking water for your coffee and food related items as the water on SPI smells and has a bad taste.
I would rebook at this particular condominium for sure and would consider this unit again if issues noted were corrected.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review about your stay, I am glad to hear overall you had such a great time. I wanted to follow up on some of the things you pointed out about the condo. We have adjusted the vents in the kitchen and living room so the air is not directed into the kitchen and circulates better in the condo. We have also put instructions up for the outlets and how to turn them on and off. The outlets are connected to a light switch in the living room. We have labeled and put instructions up for our guests. We have also replaced the vacuum and fixed the leak in the toilet. Again, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We look forward to seeing you and your family again on your next trip to South Padre Island. If you of anyone in your group have any questions please do not hesitate to call, I will be happy to assist you.
