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.

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.

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!

Owner's Response: Gilbert, We were extremely disappointed that housekeeping did not have the room prepared as you would have liked. The room had been cleaned by the normally outstanding Sapphire staff, but apparently one of the bathrooms developed a water ring between the time it was serviced and your arrival. We immediately contacted Sapphire maintenance and someone came up to the room the next day to take care of this issue. We have taken steps to insure the room is re-inspected prior to guest arrival in the future in situations like this. We pride ourselves on the immaculate condition of our condo and will do everything we can to insure this accident is not repeated. We appreciate the feedback to help us improve. Regards, Marc

Beautiful Condo and View

  • 3 of 5

We wanted to share our experience at the Sapphire Luxury Beachfront Condo. While the condo was beautiful and the views spectacular, there are some things that we think are worth noting. When we arrived, the staff was mostly welcoming but did a poor job in providing information about the facilities such as game room times, where you can dispose of trash, pool times, etc.

While the condo was nicely appointed, we noted that pots and pans in the kitchen should be replaced as one of the pots had melted. The sheets on all beds were "pilled" and should be updated with fresh, new linens as well as replacing pillows. Also missing was an adequate supply of toilet paper for the 2 bathrooms.

The owner needed to drop off an end table and lamp for the main master bedroom, and while that was ok and the owner did contact me via phone, it felt that while we are on vacation and renting the condo, this should have been done when we were not there. They added other amenities as well - a plant on the balcony, a rug in the main living space and bath carpets in the main bathroom.

The property itself was pretty empty during this time. As we had a 2 year old with us, we decided to use one of the cabanas on the last day of our stay and we were told that we couldn't use them so had to move. With literally a few families at the resort, we felt that this was a bit "harsh" in asking us to move. The hot tub in the pool area as also not very warm and we asked several times to move up the temperature. It never warmed up, unfortunately.

Overall, it was a pleasant stay.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry that your experience renting with us did not entirely meet your expectations. We strive for excellence and want to address a few of the concerns you had. We routinely change out all kitchen items, linens, and other amenities, as well as conduct a full inspection on a regular basis. However, we will immediately look into the issues and take corrective action. Apologies that housekeeping didn’t provide as much toilet paper as you were hoping for. We provide four rolls initially and the front desk will always supply additional necessities when asked. In regards to your concern about us dropping off the end table during your stay, we deeply apologize for the miscommunication. We contacted you in advance asking permission, and at the time we understood it would not be a problem as you were out of the room all day. After gaining your permission, we were in and out of the unit within 5 minutes when dropping off the replacement supplies and furniture. Regarding the cabanas, the Sapphire charges for the cabanas in order to offset the cost of maintaining and cleaning them. We are glad you found the condo beautiful and nicely appointed, and that your stay was pleasant overall. Thank you for bringing these matters to our attention so we can correct them immediately. We hope you will choose to stay with us again in the future.

Sapphire Lives up to its Reputation

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for the month of February and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Sapphire is very likely at the top end of the market but you get what you pay for in this case. The Sapphire has lots of parking, a staffed, front desk 24/7 and lots of extras like the gym, a theater room (which we used a few times), pool and hot tub. The pool at the Sapphire is not heated and in February, that means the water is pretty chilly the entire month. We were told we could use the heated pool at the adjacent Pearl Hotel but we never did check that out. The location of the Sapphire is quite convenient as it is an easy walk to a number of nearby restaurants: Pier 19, Dirty Al's, Yummies, Gabriella's, Sea Ranch and Kohnami's sushi bar to name a few of them. Many of the condos at the Sapphire (like this one) are three bedroom so they are quite spacious. The owner was very responsive when the new dryer conked out and it turned out the problem was a faulty circuit breaker. He had the electricians there the same day and things were promptly fixed. I needed a good internet connection as I was working the entire month from the condo (sad, but true) and the speed test I did one day was around 16 mb/sec which is about what my home internet is rated so that worked out fine. The good internet connection is quite handy for your evening Netflix watching, too. The unit has a second balcony (you have to exit the unit and walk across the hallway to get to it) that faces the Laguna Madre, which is kind of cool, but the balcony only has a grill and no chairs, so we just used it to watch a few sunsets and didn't use the grill at all. It wouldn't be that hard to take a few of the stools in the kitchen over to the balcony if you were so inclined.

The kitchen has a nice island that has four stools and there is a separate medium sized table that seats four as well. As a previous review noted, the master bedroom has a flat screen TV but the other two bedrooms don't have TVs nor do they have windows. The walk-in closet and bathroom in master bedroom are both very large and you won't be disappointed.

South Padre is a great place for Winter Texans like ourselves and if all goes as planned we'll be back next year at the Sapphire.

Great rate

  • 4 of 5

Excellent rate for this condo. Disappointed that the hot tub was not working (cold) the entire stay. Thiat was Sapphire's problem, not the condo owner. Seems like that could have been fixed within a few days. Condo needs some shades for big window and larger and more TVs, but other than that nothing needs improvement. Great place.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments, we appreciate them and always strive to improve the quality of our condo. We did install shades in the master bedroom windows -- which have a fabulous ocean view -- shortly after your stay. The hot tub was repaired by the Sapphire maintenance crew, who do an outstanding job keeping all the great facilities at the Sapphire in perfect condition. Thank you again for taking the time to write us and for the kind words about our condo.
