“Now that's a vacation!”
Reviewed 11 July 2013

This was our first trip to South Padre Island and it was absolutely wonderful! We really enjoyed Suntide III - super convenient location, close to just about everything... walked out the back of the building to the beach, great fun at the pools, and very friendly staff. Ample parking and loved the grocery carts available for hauling all our stuff upstairs to the most fabulous condo ever! We stayed in Condo 1105 - a beautiful Tuscan get-away! Its a 3BR/3BA Penthouse with an incredible view. We vacationed with another family for a total of 8 people (adults, teens, and kids) and we had tons of room. The condo is decorated so beautifully, rooms are spacious and very comfortable, the bathrooms are updated and roomy (especially the incredibly decadent master bath) and their are tons of extras all around. It was a very relaxing perfect getaway.

Room Tip: We loved 1105!

We stayed in Unit 1208 for the 2nd time in three years. It is a nice 3 Br 3 Ba unit with nice updated kitchen. The location of the frig in relation to the pantry is quite inconvenient, but you can manage. The bathrooms need to be updated, but the rest of the unit is very nice. The staff is very nice & accommodating and they are on site if you need them. We weren't told that we needed to bring toilet paper if we ran out, so that was an inconvenience at night having to go to the store & buy more, but at least the Island Market is only 2 blks. away. There are 3 bathrooms with a hair dryer in each, so no need to bring your hair dryer. The unit has soap & shampoo in the bathrooms for your use. The complex has a nice indoor pool and large outdoor pool. Music at the pool was little loud for me, but they turned it down when asked. Your towels can be exchanged each day between 10 & 12 AM. They have beach chairs & umbrellas & canopies for rent. The staff puts them up for you. All in all, this is a great place to stay at South Padre.

I stayed with my family in a corner unit 3 bedroom/3 bath condo on the 3rd floor. The rooms were spacious and had all the bedding needed for a comfortable stay. We especially enjoyed the large kitchen with the extra large bar for food preparation and eating around the bar. There were plenty of dishes, pots and pans, bowls, silverware etc. We really loved having a washer/dryer in our unit. We took advantage of the grills that could be reserved for grilling down in the pretty, well-maintained yard area. My grandchildren really enjoyed playing kickball and basketball on the tennis courts that were on level 3 just outside our condo. But those same courts are one of the reasons I gave this 4 stars instead of 5. Older teens stayed out on the courts, hanging out and making lots of noise until @ 11:00 each night, which was a problem when we were trying to get our young grandchildren to bed at a decent time. The beach access was also a little difficult, with one access point requiring us to walk through a parking lot and the other access at the opposite end of the building required going through the main lobby of the complex. We used a cart to transport towels, toys, food, etc. to the beach, and had to pick it up to get down a couple sets of steps in the lobby. They also had problems with one set of elevators while we were there, causing the other elevators to be very slow. But all in all, it was a great place to stay, and the people at the front desk were friendly and helpful. We had a fantastic time!

Room Tip: Stay somewhere other than the 3rd floor due to noise from tennis courts.

I stayed with my family in a 3 bed 3 bath & it was really spacious. The condo had everything you needed. I mean everything!!! Washer & dryer, plates, forks, knives even toys for my kids to play with in the sand. Easy access to the beach. Clean lobby & pool area. A nice place to eat on balcony.Oh & the beds were very comfy & I've stayed in a lot of nice hotel rooms but Suntide had the best beds. Friendly staff too

Stayed at Suntide lll unit 807 (2 bedrom, 2 bathroom) for the 3rd year now. All units face the gulf and beach and with very large balconies, it's the perfect place to watch the sunrise. The grounds are well maintained and manicured enhancing the setting. The views and sun exposure from the 8th floor are a perfect mix while offering privacy and quiet for those looking for a relaxing vacation. The pool areas (both indoor and out) are in excellent condition with complimentary lounge chairs and table and umbrella combos. chairs and umbrellas are also available for the beach. The island's only grocery store is located 2 short blocks away which is a real convenience. My choice of units is 807, it is tastefully decorated in a pleasant beach theme. The beds are very comfortable with high quality linens. The kitchen has newer, upscale appliances (side by side fridge with icemaker!) and there's even a washer and dryer. Every conceivable convenience seems to have been thoughtfully supplied. Modern flat screen TV's (3) are in both bedrooms and living area. Internet service is also available at no cost! You'll also find beach lounge chairs in the closet. Front desk staff was very pleasant and helpful. Covered parking is ample and secure due to the gated entry. Highly recommended, can't wait to go back!!!

Room Tip: 8th floor was the perfect level for views, peace and quiet!

we recently stayed there and had nothing but issues with the management team. They promised a pack and play for our 10 month old and then didn't have an acceptable one and offered no solution on where she should sleep. They also claim that we damaged the stove and are charging over $500 for it. they have no check off sheet ahead of time and we have no record of the damage. for all i know they charge everyone for it and just leave it that way to get more $$.
dont bother to ask for a manager - the one that works there is never there...

SuntideIIICondo, Manager at Suntide III Condominiums, responded to this review, 3 June 2013
We at Suntide try to accommodate all guest to assure their safety and stay is plesant. We did promise to provide a pack and play, but at the time our pack and play were not acceptable to our guest for safety concerns. Management did purchase a brand new pack and play the next day. Stove damage was to a glass top stove. Before and after guest arrived/ depart, condos are inspected for damages by management. All damages are repaired on a timely manner to assure the safety of future guest.

Shared condo 1202 with my sister and brother-in-law. Great time and very nice 2bedroom/2bath unit. Great views of beach and gulf. Lot of amenities at complex. Will consider going back here next year. We enjoyed being on the beach and just relaxing in the spa.
