“5 stars all around!”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

Spending the weekend at the Hilton SPI was a great experience and even more so the garden grill made my family's stay that much more worth it. To start our mornings off they offer a full breakfast bar buffet and anything from the breakfast menu made to order was great, and after a full fun filled afternoon at their pool the service was taken to you pool side! :) daily specials are just enough to fill the kids and at great prices. Not to mention the bar service was a plus! Seafood at the garden was better then any others I've had at island and the service was so welcoming and friendly I would highly recommend the Hilton and the garden grill.

“The only bad part of the Hilton”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

The employees are wonderful and give you such great service that it is very sad the food tastes so terrible. Typical over-priced, yukky hotel fare but sadly there aren't a lot of choices in South Padre that are much better.

“Good and convenient”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

We stayed here in early August. We were pleased with the hotel food. We ate breakfast once in the dining room and ordered room service once. The food was fresh, hot and good. The room service was even hot! Highly recommend it.

Reviewed 12 August 2014

Ourselves and older children stayed their over July 4th weekend! This hotel is all about GREAT service. Hats off to the manager who was very accommodating to house our oversized surf board and waitress Brenda for making our time at South Padre a great time. When we go back this is the only place we will stay. D & D
