We had a wonderful time at the Bahia Mar resort. The Villa was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The location of this villa is excellent since the tower and other condos are very far from the beach. Our friends also stayed at the resort but beware some condos are by the tower and its a long walk to the beach. I really appreciated the well equipped kitchen, there was everything needed to prepare meals. Security with wristbands ensures safety. I didnt mind the tight security it made me feel my children were safe at all times. The beach is literally steps away form the condo, as is the main swimming pool. We've spent many vacations at South Padre and truly feel this is the best resort on the island. Communication from Lourdes the owner is great. Our children loved the small pool and this was a big plus when we wanted to just relax at the condo. The grounds were amazing too. I would definitely recommend this property an look forward to future visits. Thank you Lourdes!
