Sapphire Condominiums
Ranked #14 of 32 Hotels in South Padre Island
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 May 2014

A group of friends and I stayed at the Sapphire for a late spring vacation on an off season weekend. We rented condo #1308 from a privately owned property rental company. The building itself is a beauty and the location is great! The room was nicely furnished and had sufficient household items to avoid dinning at restaurants. Nonetheless, our major quibble came with the Sapphire staff and property management. When we first arrived they had an unfriendly demeanor and portrayed themselves as unaccommodating, this was disheartening as there weren't many guest in the otherwise massive two towers most likely as it was off season. On that same note, if you decide to bring guest make sure it’s within their max limit as management will be quickly to remove your loved ones from their property and even threaten to contact the local police department even if they planned to stay for minutes. We have never encountered such heartless and unwelcoming people; including property manager Mary Lou Knuckles who made the decision to tell her security guard to contact the cops. I do not recommend staying at this property. You will be much better off renting a house further up the island.

Room Tip: Do not rent here.

We love sapphire condo and the service of front desk concierge & Coastal life style...top notch services. They cater to our every need. We love the infinity pools, the hot tub, the spa and the awesome gym. My teens love the game room and the theatre room. We vacation all over the world and Sapphire SPI is still our favorite place to come for R&R.
We love unit 1101...it has 3 big bed rooms, huge bathrooms and the BEST VIEWS. You can see the ocean from the front and back balconies, the living room, the kitchen, the kids' bedroom, and the Master Bedroom. We love to BBQ and watch the sunset from the back balcony. We feel so relaxed and have the best vacation when we re there. The condo is professional decorated, big flat screen TVs in every room, very clean, and well stocked with tons of kitchen utensils. We love to cook and the condo has everything we can think of...Coastal lifestyle provides plenty of towels for us and gave us a tour of the place at check in. We absolutely love...love this place and will be back again and again!!!
