Our brand new 3-Bedroom beach front luxury condo is located on the 14th floor in the island's crown jewel, the high-rise Sapphire Resort condominium. Fabulous South Tower ocean front view to enjoy your morning coffee or evening margaritas. Private second balcony faces to the western bay for sunset and firework views.

The Sapphire’s facilities and amenities simply must be seen to be believed! Practically brand new and ultra-modern, featuring a Texas sized 300 foot crystal clear swimming pool and a huge heated whirlpool large enough for 30! The large pool area features private cabana’s available for rental. Comfortable loungers surround the pool, which features high and low spots to wade or swim. A state of the art fitness center with Cybex equipment, flat screens everywhere, and a yoga room rivals the best fitness club anywhere.

Want to be pampered? Visit the Sapphire Spa on the main floor — the most beautiful full service spa in South Texas. Want to take care of business? The business center features multiple computers, printing capabilities, and high speed internet.

The great part of this complex is the variety of activities for everyone in the family! A game room provides great entertainment featuring table games like pool, foosball, shuffleboard, and pinball machines. A 24 seat home theater is available for your pleasure. There are nightly movies or you can bring you own and reserve it to watch your favorites on a large screen with multi-speaker sound. Located right next door to Schlitterbahn, you can walk over to this amazing water park!

The Sapphire has a front desk staffed 24 hours and multi-level covered parking.

In addition to all the facilities the Sapphire offers, right next door is the Pearl Hotel (formerly Marriott), and Sapphire guests have access to all this hotel has to offer, including large pool with heated swim up bar and restaurants. The Sunday brunch at the Pearl is the best on the island!

The condo units in the Sapphire are fabulous!

High-end finishing with spacious rooms and plenty of storage. Huge master bath with Jacuzzi tub and walk-in shower w/ over-sized master closet.

Perfect Floor: 14th floor on the South Tower is the perfect Sapphire location.

With the high South Tower view, you get to see all of the beach and the channel. All Sapphire units have two private balconies — both eastern and western — and our bay (western) view is the perfect height to show you a beautiful expanse of the bay for memorable sunsets and weekend fireworks! Floor height is critical when selecting your perfect Sapphire room!

There is in-room washer and dryer, two large flat screen LED TVs, a blu-ray player, and beach toys/boogie boards all provided for you!

The Sapphire is without a doubt the best and most beautiful resort destination in South Padre Island, and #1408 is one of the best condo’s in this fantastic location.

Nice Unit -Needs Attention

  • 3 of 5

The condo was nice, clean but needs updating. It was advertised to have fine linens but they were marginal at best. There was one full roll of toilet paper in the front bath and only a half roll in the Master, certainly not stocked to accommodate 5 people. The kitchen furnishings, i.e., dishes, pots, pans, glasses, etc. were ample but not organized. The unit needed some oversight and to be better managed.

There was one "major" problem and that was with the elevators. When we arrived one elevator was out of service and had been for several days according to others staying there. The second elevator went out mid-afternoon and was out of service overnight until Noon the following day. The only way up or down was to walk. We were lucky we were already in the 14th floor condo and had food for meals No notices were posted by the building management!

The building management was not helpful at all and could provide little information. I called the owner and he was unaware of the situation and immediately called the management company. Unfortunate situation.

We departed one day early for fear the elevator would again go out. The elevator that was out of service before we arrived was still not working when we let. For the entire tower, only one elevator in service. Not a good thing and a safety issue for sure.

Best property on the Texas gulf coast

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in rentals up and down the gulf coast of Texas and this property without doubt is the best beach front facility I have stayed at. There isn't much inventory along the coast that is well maintained and most all of those facilities are tired and in desperate need of remodeling. There may be a nice unit here and there but the common areas of those facilities are long overdue a "face lift". Property is well maintained and clean throughout all of the common areas. Game room is clean and kept well maintained. Exercise room is probably the best I have seen for a hotel or condo association. Pool area and hot tub are really beautiful areas and there is quick easy access to the beach. 1408 has a modern decor with excellent finishes, view is excellent, easy access, and only a handful of units per floor. Owner was easy to work with and very responsive. This unit will definitely be a repeat stay for us in the future.

Great stay at the Sapphire.

  • 5 of 5

Family vacation to SPI. If you are looking at this property you knwo the amenities that the Sapphire/Pearl have. Beach access, great pools, and easy access to many things on the island. Everything went just as expected and we couldn't be happier. We would happily consider staying there again or recommending to a friend. Do yourself a favor and enjoy the views and style of this place.
