Nestled among the sea oats and sand dunes, and highlighted by the blue of the Gulf of Mexico, The Peninsula Island Resort and Spa South Padre Island, Texas is the perfect venue for a relaxing island escape. Located directly on the beach in the heart of South Padre Island's "hotel row", our upscale property opened in 2006, and combines the highest standards in construction with contemporary, tasteful design. The units are all well-appointed, and range in size from our very popular studio kitchenette units to our 3 bedroom/3 bath condominiums. With concrete walls, porcelain tile flooring, and leather furniture, our resort was designed to resist to mold, humidity and allergens all-too-often common near the sea. Our swimming pool is the largest infinity pool in South Texas, and features a convenient swim up bar. Each offers either a full kitchen or kitchenette, and everything else necessary to cook and serve a gourmet meal. If cooking is not your thing, Las Olas Restaurant Grill and Bar, located onsite, is considered by many to be one of the best restaurants on South Padre Island, and offers a variety of delicious homemade dishes available for in-room dining. All-in-all, the Peninsula is in a league of its own--offering the spacious luxury of a condominium, coupled with the service and appointments of an upper-tier resort hotel.In July 2016, we added 27 deluxe rooms, each room has high speed internet, two full size beds, sofabed, 42" TV with cable, and a minibar fridge.

I have stayed here a total of 3 times and each time I am discouraged from booking again but then I get a spa with Gracie and her amazing attentiveness to me that I forget how old and unkempt this place really is. We had a girl weekend getaway the room we booked was a 3 bedroom

We were excluded (in writing upon check in) from the free continental breakfast available to all others because we were RCI members. Our 3 bedroom unit had a 1/2" gap under entrance door allowing bugs in front bedroom daily. Unit smelled musty. Only 1 bathroom had a hairdryer,

Tough to write a fair review. Some really good things and some things were really annoying. Good news first? Had a three bedroom unit, very spacious and had everything needed for a good weeks stay. Kitchen had a full size fridge, range, dishwasher, and microwave. Enough pots

Older resort but well maintained. Pool area and whirlpools were excellent as was beach access. Parking is a long walk but they provide rides in golf carts. Staff is very helpful. Even the 2nd floor condo we had provided a great view of the Gulf from three sets of windows and

Don’t buy GroupOn for this place, the cleaning fee is highway robbery. And the front desk reservations guy on 1/4 was rude. I will say the front desk reservation guy, and women helping front desk on Saturday and Sunday was great. Yancy was also great.
