I found the Pearl to be the perfect place to relax and unwind. The staff was friendly and helpful, suggesting places to explore for drinks and dinner. My meals at rhe hotel were great, I was told the chef is new and they just rolled out a new menu a day or two before I arrived. This hotel has a...

I visited the Pearl South Padre over Thanksgiving, and was really disappointed in the quality of the hotel & the rooms. The location is excellent, but the hotel really needs a complete overhaul. The rooms were fairly clean, but shabby, with mold on the lampshades and an overpowering odor of Pine-sol cleaner (maybe to mask the musty smell?). We had...

The Pearl has a great view of the ocean and the staff was nice. The hotel was very clean and the rooms very comfortable. I was not impressed with the restaurant because the wait was too long and the food was not cooked correctly. I will not hold the restaurant against my stay because the hotel was clean and comfortable....

Room needs update. Toilet overflowed several times. Room smelled damped and there was mold looking stuff on the balcony. The restaurant reception was not very happy. Good deal for the price though. I guess you get what you pay for.

At first I was hesitant to reserve a room per travel tips but then made it. I am so glad I did! If mom loved it that means everything to me! Beds were comfortable and linens were perfect. The view from the 9th floor was beautiful! Right on the beach so we can take our walks and also bar was...

This hotel was remodeled in 2008, so there's no excuse for not being ADA compliant. The toilets are terribly low, not the 17-19" required by ADA. I am in a wheelchair and need help on and off the toilet. The low toilets are difficult and dangerous for a caregiver. The bathrooms are also poorly-lit and mildewy. Our deadbolt didn't work...

We live within a 5 hour drive of South Padre Island and have been going there for a quick get-away for many years. We have tried other hotels but always return to the Pearl. In my opinion, it is without a doubt, the best of the best on the island.

Great location, right on the beach! Hot tub cleanliness and working jets left some to be desired. We went in off season so many of the outdoor amenities were not available. I found the lobby to be outdated, but the staff incredibly friendly.

We stayed in a 2-bedroom condo and it was great! Very clean, soft beds, everything worked well in the kitchen. Beautiful view of the ocean. Sat on our balcony sipping coffee every morning we were there. We went in the "off season" so a nice quiet visit here--very romantic. The hot tub was not really "hot" the first night, but...

Hotel in general is due for an update, only a few minor cleanliness issues. Location is awesome, facilities are good. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Our only issue was cloudy and rainy weather, but that isn't the hotels fault.
