“The kids had fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

The kids really enjoyed the stay 7 year old, 6 year old and 2year old. We took a family vacation down to South Padre for three night and four days 4th of July weekend. It wasn’t as packed as I heard it was going to be which was a plus. We stayed at the resort and had easy access to the beach but kids enjoyed the water park better. . I did like everything about it but I honestly think it’s a little over price for a water park that is not done (construction) the water park is still being built which we did not know about. We thought it was going to be a lot bigger (NRh20) is a lot bigger than this water park but we heard this was a lot better which it wasn’t. FUN for the kids yes but not big. They don’t have complimentary breakfast which also sucks for the price you are paying, but we took our own food for breakfast and lunch. The staff looked a little frustrated with having to deal with people on the phone, over the desk and room services. They should think about hiring more people and on top of that you need to go to lobby to change your wrist band every day for the water park…so you have to wait about 10-15 minutes for another down fall on that for three egger kids trying to get wet. Over all it was a good vacation for the kids and us the beach sound and is beautiful but I would rather save my money for a better resort and finished water park. The rooms were big, clean but need more towels.

Ok location, fun beach but guest services and food were terrible!! Took 30 minutes for them to make 1 breakfast burrito!! For over 200 rooms they never had a luggage cart, not even at 5 am when no one was around. Will never stay here again!!

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.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2013

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.
