We stayed in Room 233. It was spacious and we had everything we needed. Close to the pool even though we didn't use it as it was too cool temperature wise right now. Close to the boardwalk down to the beach area. We parked close to our unit. The only Cons I had were there was not a hot tub,...

This was our first time in Port Aransas and we found El Cortez on Trip Advisor. We had a great experience! Already planning to come back next year and stay longer. Stayed in 123 and condo was clean and very well kept. Would like this condo again. Nice appliances, comfortable beds and nice patio facing the pool. Close to town...

We stayed in 234, a one bedroom condo. Second floor balcony is great. It overlooks the common area and one of the pools. Owner has updated the inside with tile and new furniture. We loved how good the AC worked and the water pressure in the shower was great. El Cortez takes great care of their property and the pools...

We stayed in Room 204. Easy walk to the beach, close to the clean pools. It was quiet and not crowded. The mattresses were really comfortable and we loved having a washer and dryer. The décor needed updating, but that's not really my priority at the beach.

We stayed in unit #124 while in Port A for the Old Town Festival. The beds were so comfortable and the patio was really enjoyable. It was nice to have a washer and dryer at our disposal as well. Yoli at the front desk was pleasant and courteous. We asked her about some work being done around the complex and...

We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it to others! The condo was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed! Short walk to the beach was enjoyable. Pool was clean and the condos were very accessible.

It has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths with both baths being located inside the bedrooms. So if you are planing on having people sleep on the pull out couch they will have to...

We wanted to spend less money on a place to stay and more money on things to do on this vacation. Was just what we needed. We didn't stay at the resort much since we were at the beach all day long or in town doing fishing or dolphin watching. Wasn't anything wonderful but a place to stay while we...

My husband and I went here for our first wedding anniversary this year. It was nice! For the price, it was great. It was exactly what we were looking for.
