We booked this quick getaway on Groupon and read reviews so we knew not to expect 5 star quality. Yes there is quite a walk from parking lot to hotel. Neither hot tubs worked and according to staff they've been trying to fix it for weeks. We booked the "king studio" which was actually 2 full size beds. One was...

I don't expect hotels on South Padre Island to be perfect, given the climate (salty air) and number of people who visit. The staff at Peninsula is very nice and helpful. The location is great - on the beach. I reserved a king suite but somehow ended up with a two bedroom/two bathroom suite. The balcony overlooked the pool, and...

We stayed here for 7 days, had our wedding on the beach in front of Peninsula Island, and had our dinner and reception in the restaurant. Parking is pretty far out but not a huge deal as you can drive right up to the hotel and drop off guests and get your luggage, etc. and you get a ride on...

I travel often for work and have stayed at countless hotels so felt compelled to write this after the Peninsula Hotel exceeded my expectations. My room was immaculate, spacious and had a great view. The service was very attentive, and the restaurant offered a varied menu of good quality food. I would highly recommend this hotel to families or couples...

We were looking forward to this trip this summer, because we spent almost twice what we spent the year before to stay at a "resort" instead of a hotel. Unfortunately we had a very disappointing start to our stay and it lingered the entire 5 nights. Upon arrival the check-in area is a small office with a desk and a...

In my opinion south Padre Island has the nicest beaches in Texas. My wife and I booked a three-day stay at the Peninsula Island Resort&Spa with Travelocity.com which offered a very attractive package. Our suite included a main bedroom with a balcony overlooking the ocean, a very nice bathroom and another room with a sleeper sofa, a dining table, a...

This is by far the best resort I have had the pleasure of staying in. The scenic views are above any other I have seen personally and the service was BEYOND five stars.

Went to South Padre Island for vacation last month with some friends, and this was the best deal for all of us. Right on the beach, which was great! Also had a really sweet pool, so we pretty much just hung out there or the beach most of the time. Staff was friendly and rooms were really nice. Would definitely...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
