Reviewed 21 April 2014

Have to move to another room because AC not working well in the master's because air was not blowing sufficiently. the rest of the condo was very confortable in temperature. I haighly recomend this hotel. At the restaurant our waitress Aramis performed very good. I suggest they serve hot crab legs with melted butter in the brunch.

The staff and property are top notch. Food and drink services are as well. Don't miss the Friday night seafood buffet. Just stay away from Easter week. This week, we found out, is a spring break week for some. The most disrespectfull group of people I have ever been around.

We got everything we had hoped for! We stayed at the Pearl for a week, and it didn't disappoint.
The view was spectacular, the drinks refreshing, and the hotel genuinely did everything to make our stay wonderful!
It was nice to be away from the college scene, and from what we saw on our morning beach walks, a gem for the price.
Booking online is always a gamble no matter how much you research, but we would definitely stay at the Pearl again.

The Pearl is a modern hotel by most standards. It is now owned by Omni but previously was a Sheraton. The 12 storey building is part of complex incorporating two thirty story twin towers, the highest buildings in S Padre. The Pearl lies in the shadow of these huge towers facing the sea
The massive buildings stand in the way of prevailing winds thus causing a vortex making entering the hotel lobby somewhat of a chore. One is buffeted continually by the wind filtering around the towers
My wife and I spent a week at this hotel. Granted that although we were led to believe that the unit was being refurbished, the balconies and external rendering in places looked like it had been sprayed with shrapnel. It was reminiscent of a Syrian war torn building.

We paid $105+ tax a night which included full American breakfast.....so we were led to believe ! Indeed we had daily coupons that said exactly that. This was not the case at all as the coupon actually offered food up to a value of $12 per day. This sum didn't buy very much. Indeed if you started with Oatmeal then all that was available afterwards was a bagel and cream cheese. If again you bought fruit then there was little more on offer. Beverage was of course available together with processed fruit juice. We found the whole thing lacking any warmth and anodyne, having had better in Hampton Inns and suchlike. This was a real disappointment. The hotel sometimes offer a buffet alternative but this depends on the number of guests. We were offered this option on our last day BUT again it fell short of full service. There were few bread products on offer ,and you had to ask for them . Two slices of processed bread was about the limit.and we found muffins and cake wasn't an option.

Our room was serviceable barring the complete lack of mats especially by the bedside. The floor was tiled and gritty from the sand off the beach. The rest of the hotel was kept in good order . However the Tommy Bahama shop selling high-end garments in the lobby was incongruous as it was out of keeping with the quality of the hotel

Outside the grounds and pool are kept in good order. Someone has built a ridiculous concrete barrier over the pool to segregate an area at the back. Frankly it is a real eye sore and ruins the look of this area

Whilst we were there it was the end of the Spring Break when thousands of students descend on South Padre for recreation. All the hotels put on musical entertainment . The Pearl was no different with rap type Musak blearing away from morning to night. I asked if the music could be changed as I had listened to the same awful repetitious music over and over again. The Management told me that the music is on a loop and plays for the whole season ! After a week we had quite enough as our brains were frazzled by the incessant poor offering. The Company were oblivious of the frustration they were creating. Other older people like ourselves also complained bitterly

Overall The Pearl has a long way to go to bring it up to a good standard. A great pity really because the Isla Grand Hotel along the Strip is a far more comfortable and polished place to spend a week.

South Padre is a best kept secret if you just want tranquillity without the hi-life. I will return but not to The Pearl ......... Si from the UK

Room Tip: Ask the right questions !

We were there for my sisters wedding. The beds were clean and comfortable. Fast customer service. The pearl ballroom was beautiful, great food and great fast service. We also visited the Sapphire Spa. Bobby was amazing! I recommend the manicure and pedicure. But all the services are amazing and a beautiful spa to be in! I would definitely go back. It might seem a bit pricey but the clean beds and fast service are worth paying for. Great shower and tub with good amenities.
