Schlitterbahn Beach Resort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 July 2013

The hotel is clean, and well appointed, the staff at the hotel was extremely nice. Our six year old loved the indoor waterpark and the swim up bar.

In the fall they will have the tunnel built to the main park. There were shuttles to the park, but a long line, so we ended up walking the 10 minute walk, which was fine.

The park discount for people who stay at the resort was a great perk!

My only complaint is that there are no patios on the hotel rooms.

Just returned from South Padre. Had a great time! If you are headed that way try out the Schlitterbahn Resort. We stayed there three nights and were very pleased especially with the service. Denise is fabulous. She took my phone reservation and was at the front desk every time we went through the lobby. Very friendly and helpful...what an asset to Schlitterbahn!

Room Tip: The view gets better the higher up you go.

I recently vacationed at the Schlitterbahn Beach Resort and could not be any happier. The hotel has a great location with quick access to the beach and indoor waterpark. It was ideal for our family and our kids can't stop asking us when we are headed back. Everyone at the hotel was extremely helpful and friendly. The food at the hotel was great and the rooms were extremely clean!! The seaside pool overlooking the beach was perfect for my family as we were able to enjoy a meal and still keep an eye on the kids due to its location to the beach and grille area! Thank you for a great time!!!

Loved the great view we had from our room. The water park was so much fun for the kids and taking a walk on the beach to end the day made our stay perfect! Everything is so close to the resort. I would definitely stay at the Schlitterbahn Beach Resort again.

We just returned from this hotel. We decided to visit based on a special offer for season pass holders in New Braunfels. For $99 a night this we too good of a deal to pass up. The hotel is right on the beach which is well worth that price alone. The hotel seemed new and up to date.

The construction was not too bad but made us want to return to see when it is completed. Hopefully both parts of the park would be connected. The shuttle between seemed to take too long so we just took our own car over.

We also had an issue with luggage carts. My daughter said she saw some in a closet not being used. Also the front desk staff seemed overwhelmed at check in and check out time. Since you must return daily to get a new band, you might have to wait for ten minutes or so. It would be great to have another method or place to just receive the bands and be on your way. Perhaps having a dedicated staff and desk just for this during certain hours.

The room had a partial view of the beach. Again for this price that was a bonus. The housekeeping was still cleaning rooms at 5pm and didn't have any towels at that time. We did receive them later and opted one night just to have our room not cleaned. This was not a problem.

South Padre Island is a delightful place to visit. It was not crowded. Be sure to take a drive down to the end of the island on the north side to see the massive sand dunes. We did this daily to enjoy the sunset.

As season pass holders in New Braunfels, we rec'd an invite to stay at the resort in SPI for $99 a night-with alot going on this year already we had decided not to take any vacation but this price was perfect for us..a family of 3-we stayed Monday through Wednesday. The hotel room was the cleanest I have EVER seen! Great job to the HOUSEKEEPING STAFF there!! The Seaside Grill was very reasonable in prices AND the food was great!! We had access to the beach from the hotel and I think that is what we enjoyed the most! There were umbrellas and chairs to rent and the beach itself was clean!! There is some construction going on and I wish it had been completed. The waterpark itself was less than okay only because Schlitterbahn New Braunfels should help out their SPI location it seems like..They also offered a "Helmet" experience where you get to feed the fish underwater in the park and our last day we planned on going to do that with our 7 year old..we called to get info and the hours(3 times we called)..we got there at 5:30 and were told there was no diver there..why couldn't they tell us that on the phone? That was a disappointment..But we did have fun and appreciated the clean rooms!! My daughter said her favorite part was the waves on the beach!! and no jellyfish!!

Room Tip: I think there were 6 floors and we stayed on the 2nd floor and had a view of the hot tub bar and it...

Recently took a trip to South Padre, and stayed at the Schliterbahn Beach Resort. We had a balst. We have been frequent visitors to other Schliterbahn water parks, but never to one of thier resorts. The people were very friendly and knowledgeable. The facilities were very clean. We really enjoyed the water attractions at the resort, especially the Torrent River. The food quality was superb. I especially liked the Sea Side Bar. The Bartenders, knew how to make a very good drink. There is some construction going on, but it didnt interfere with the resorts amenities. We normally go to South Padre once a year, and this will be our new place to stay. Schliterbahn did a wonderful job on the detail of the rooms and facilities.
