Pearl South Padre
Grab some sunscreen and hit the beach at this seaside hotel.
Located on the far southern tip of Texas, this hotel is perfect for a seaside vacation. The surrounding area yields several restaurants serving fresh Gulf seafood, as well as miles of open beach where vacationers enjoy wave-hopping, sandcastle building and good old-fashioned relaxation. The South Padre Island Convention Center is a short drive away. Each of this hotel's smoke-free guest rooms has a private balcony with panoramic views. While the tropical tones are inviting, you probably won't spend much time inside. Most guests come here for the beach and expansive pool, the largest hotel pool in South Texas. Dining can be found at the on-site Beachside Bar and Gril, while drinks are served in a seasonal poolside palapa, where guests can pull up a chaise lounger in the shade of a tall palm. For additional relaxation, Sapphire Spa provides a comprehensive selection of treatments. Numerous family-friendly amenities include roll-away beds and cribs, a supervised children's program in the summer and a separate kiddie pool. This hotel is tops with both local and out-of-area vacationers. Wi-Fi is free and pets are welcome, with restrictions.
