“Nice Beach - Be Careful of the RV Park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2006

We had a hard time getting a site two months in advance. Minimum duration for a reserved spot is one week. We arrived on Monday afternoon. About one in ten sites was actually occupied by people. Most had RV and boat and tarp frames over tables. Most sites look like they are permanently occupied. On Friday nite all the people came back. The slide out on our RV was about 6" from our neighbor's picnic table where they partied until 12.30 am.
The power went out for the entire park early on the morning we left.
I will go back but will absolutely avoid the smaller sites - look close on the map they are obvious. Book far in advance.
I heard they will bulldoze the RV park and it turn it into something more profitable. It makes sense because it currently is a weekend getaway/RV storage lot for those lucky enough to get a site.
The beach is great. Water temperature is about 10 degrees cooler than it is up the coast. By far the best in Texas.

“Wonderful Isla Blanca”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2005

We stayed in the park for two months and loved everything about it. Next year we have reservations for 4 months. They only thing they are lacking is a swimming pool, but with the ocean, who really needs it. The people are friendly and are always ready to lend a helping hand. The Dolphin Cove has the best sandwiches around. We can't wait until December. We love the whole area. It is much cheaper and much friendlier than Florida. Our favorite restaurants are Marcello's (Lighthouse Pub - free pizza during Happy Hour) and Louie's Backyard. (Best ribs ever) I love being a Winter Texan!D
