“Good bang for your Buck”
Reviewed 26 June 2012

Inexpensive compared to other option in Port A, Hot tub was great. Very close to the beach, operated by friendly and professional people. we were in room 6. It was in good shape, and had everything that we needed. We will stay here again.

Every time my girlfriend and I go down to Port A we stay in one of the Beachcomber condos. All of the condos are themed differently and they are all cozy, not to mention you can reserve a condo right on the beach for cheap! We stayed at the bamboo bungalow suite last time we went and it was great! The decorations in the condo brought life to the trip and there was a pool right out front of the room. Can't wait to go back next month!

One of the closest places right to the beach (about 2 blocks away) and located about 1/3 mile from the main street (and off the main cross street) in Port A. Our favorite place of all the cottage places in Port A. A no-frills cottage with home-ish style..

Comparable to other rooms, this one was relatively inexpensive but I was not impressed. My biggest complaint was that the air conditioner barely kept the room cool, particularly in late afternoon. Not that we go to Port A to sit and watch TV, but I was surprised to see it smaller than my computer screen. Was just OK for us. Probably won't be back.

No maid service - they do let you know that up front, though.

I couldnt have been more pleased with my stay, really close to the beach and all the shops and restaurants on the island. It was exactly what I wanted. The kitchen made it easy for me to enjoy what I caught deep sea fishing.The room was very clean and comfortable, and was furnishad with everything that I could need. I cant wait to come back.

Room Tip: Down stairs have more shade on the porches.

When we first stayed at the Beachcomber we honestly did not believe that it was within walking distance of the ocean. However, we were pleasantly surprised to find the beach was very close and not super crowded. The rooms were well furnished and clean. We also enjoyed the kitchen since we were able to make our own meals. After that first stay, we have always picked the Beachcomber if we are heading to Port Aransas. The place just has a charm to it that has kept us coming back.

We stayed in a fantastic room that had a bedroom for the parents and a large living/kitchen/dining room where the kids easily stayed in with a pull out couch and a fold away bed. Very comfortable, spacious and relaxing. The kitchen is fully stocked and one morning made a full breakfast and invited friends over who were staying in a more expensive (w/ fewer amenities) facility. The Beachcomber is truly a family affair and the care and kindness extended to us during our stay will be something we always remember. Other features that made our stay even better: Easy walk to the Beach, a lovely salt water (no Chlorine) pool, a great view of the sunrise from our room and an affordable price.
