  • Quick, easy access to the beach. Plenty of places to eat, drink, and play to where if you didn't want to, you don't HAVE to ever leave the resort during your whole stay. Very kid friendly, and overall...  more »
  • We stayed here and did the package of room and water park. The room was comfortable. Since it had micro and fridge we bought food and had many meals there especially since prices were kind of high. We...  more »
  • The staff was very friendly and helpful, but the room was average. Was advertised as having a "hot tub" - which was actually a small "heated" family pool, with a cabana bar. The hotel smelled the enti...  more »

  • My first time attempting to stay at the water park was not a great experience and the Reservation Manager Maria need some people skills. The website was temporary down online so I call into the Schlitterbahn reservation desk to reserve 2rooms for 06/30-07/02, the agent was Jennifer was very helpful and friendly. She quoted 2 standard rooms at $437.80 and I excepted. Once she attempted to reserve the rooms her system shut down and took about 3-5 minutes to get it back up, well in the meantime the rooms were taken. She told me she would get the managers assistance and contact me back. After speaking with Maria and she validating the call and price quoted she stated since we didn't have the opportunity to get to the credit card screen it was not valid and wouldn't be able to honor the price. Then she quoted me a price for $694.00. Trying to get to the corporate office is impossible, it will route you back to the reservation area and not customer relation for customer complaints. I spoke with another agent name Sheila the next day and she was able to override the price, but when she spoke with Maria to sign off she came back to the line and said Maria declined it and said the room rates was much higher for the weekend and cancelled the request. She then stated that we would have to pay the current rate. I booked it at first because it was my Birthday get away, but called and cancelled after thinking about Maria's customer service ethics as a manager.
  • I have plan to events at this Resort and the staff have been overwhelmingly helpful. They helped me create a custom menu for my 3 day event and the staff on hand for this were amazing! They are helping me with 3 events for my organization, a picnic, a Christmas party and a conference. The options as far as event spaces are numerous and there's always so many options they offer. The rooms are beautiful and the food is excellent. Located right off the causeway so you don't have to drive for miles at 20-30 mph to get to your destination. My go to place for anytime of the year and a personal getaway favorite.
  • The bathroom is a bit small. The service has been great. The beds are comfortable. The hotel is incorporated with the indoor park making it easy to get to the park early. The park is fun and family friendly. Use sunscreen because the sun will cook your skin and most of the time you are in the sun. We've enjoyed our stay and the park.
  • I'm not sure why people complain about the resort. Is out the Ritz Carlton? No, it's outdated for sure but the resort itself serves its purpose. The double queen bed was much larger than your standard room. We were able to fit a roll away bed (twin size) and blow up mattress (twin size) and easily still had room to move around. We spent very little time in our room, so the fact that it's outdated really didn't matter. It was very clean though. I have 4 kids so the fact that we would wake up and walk straight into the water park was gold for us. The two pools were nice but small and heated. Direct access to the beach. You get access to the water park from the day you check in until the day you check out. That means if you check in on a Friday and checkout on Sunday, you can arrive early on Friday, enjoy the park and then check into your room at check in time. And if you checkout Sunday, you get all day access. That's a steal if you ask me. The indoor park was awesome for Sunday morning before we checked out. This was a busy were for them, we paid $375 a night and was well worth it! Don't judge a book by its cover!
  • Friendly staff with excellent service. We stayed at one of the rooms with a beautiful beachview and absolutely loved it. Our room was clean and had no complaints during our stay. We spent most of the day at the water park and had a blast. Highly recommended.

Where to stay in South Padre Island

As with most tropical destinations, room rates in South Padre Island increase the closer you get to the beachfront, especially if you arrive at the height of tourist season. If you’ve built in a big budget for accommodations, stay at one of the town's high-rise luxury hotels or private seaside cottages. To stay near the water without spending too much, avoid the expensive spring break season. Consider one of the island's inns or developed campgrounds with easy beach access.
