My husband and I stayed here for a few days and loved it! It was within walking distance to the beach and near lots of restaurants and bars. The condo itself was very nice and roomy. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Great place for the price. Big condo with 3 bed, 3 bath. Very clean. TVs in every room and internet worked well. The cable was a little wacky (the sound lagged behind the video on the tv) but that wasnt really on the rental. Since we were there a week we loved having the kitchen w/ the washer and dryer.

The building itself was a little older. The pools and hot tubs were nice. The condo gym was a little tired and sad however. Many of the common spaces seemed dark and closed in. Overall it was fine, but not nearly as nice as the condo unit we stayed in.

The reason I give the unit a 4 instead of a five is because it lacked many of the "personal" touches we have come to expect from other rentals like this. A welcome note with things to do or see in the area would be very welcomed. Aside from dish soap, a paper towel roll and 2 trash bags there were NO supplies in the kitchen (salt, pepper, cooking oil, coffee filters, etc.). Some simple condiments would go a long way toward making the place a lot more homie. The dishes were a bit lacking requiring constant washing before each meal. Again, not a big deal but a minor annoyance. The master bed was a bit older and slightly uncomfortable. The linens seemed clean, but had several stains which was not great. The unit itself had some minor repair issues that should be addressed and a coat of paint would be good.

Next time we go to South Padre we will probably look around for a different place. We might end up back here... but we might not.
Manager response:
Thank you for leaving your review for us. The property manager has done inventory to ensure everything we provide in the kitchen is available. We do not provide any spices or oils in this home. We have notified housekeeping of your comments regarding the linens. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

We loved this spacious apartment in the Solare Tower - much bigger than can be conveyed in photographs. Living room, dining room and master bedroom were quite large. We never felt crowded at all. We loved having 4 nice-sized decks to hang out on. We had our little dog with us and it was great that this facility is so dog friendly. The kitchen was well-equipped but could use a larger setting of silverware and glasses so we don't have to run the dishwasher so often. Overall, it was a great stay and we'll plan to come back again!

The condo was spotless. Exactly as advertised except it has three full baths (everything we read listed only two). The washer and dryer work very well. The beach was beautiful although you can’t really see much beach from the condo balcony. Security was always around but they were teenagers that didn’t really stop some of the pool parties and loud music that can get annoying at times. I would suggest bringing a wagon or something to carry all the fun beach stuff, cooler, etc. to the beach. It is not a super long walk but it isn’t close either and the cooler and other stuff gets heavy after awhile. Great showers and hose to clean off all the sand right when you get on the property. Wooden steps (about 8) to get down to sand. We brought our own chairs but they have chairs and tents to rent. Location perfect to view Friday night fireworks. Parking was never an issue either. Very easy walk from parking to the elevators. Be sure to head to the top floor and go out the door that reads “Trash Chute.” The views are amazing up there. I would return and would recommend to friends and family.

What's there not to love,will definitely be back!

Great stay, nice condo, well appointed, modern. Beach access easy making for great fun in the sun. Pools clean, well kept.
Security is a little over the top but considering the goings-on of spring breakers it's understandable. Security could perhaps lighten-up a little when spring break is over.

Super nice condo it had the total package from cooking utensils to washer and dryer installed right in the condo!! The price was so good that be returning really soon!!!

Unit 401 was exactly as pictured. My family of 8 found it comfortable and convenient.
The only thing I would mention is that the grill has seen better days. It does work though. Also, I wish I would have known that beach/pool towels weren’t provided. You can rent them for $2/each per day, but we chose to run to Walmart in Port Isabel and buy some inexpensive towels. No biggie since there’s in in unit washer and dryer. A huge plus for my big family.
One of the 3 bathrooms started to smell like cigarette smoke on the last day we were there. I’m thinking it came in through the vents from another unit. We’re pretty sensitive to smoke, but it was only in the one bathroom and for 1 day.
Overall, a great place. 2 nice size pools with 2 hot tubs and east access to the beach.

The condo where we stayed was beautiful. Other than a troublesome toilet that got clogged multiple times, it was perfect for a my group of 7. The resort had excellent security which made me feel very safe.
Sandy G. Dec 2017
The home was great!!! Only issue was the view!
Marcus B. Nov 2017
Our large family really enjoyed this rental condo. The place was really clean, roomy and felt safe. The property is well-maintained and has staff monitoring the place 24/7. We had close access to the beach, and the pool was nice for the children. We did not have to cross a busy street to get to the beach, and they had a clean-up area right on the deck heading in. Wonderful for the little ones! We hope to return to this picturesque resort!

Great Room. People of vacasa & vrbo nice. The property people were not available when oher guest were extremely loud & throwing cigaretes from above balcony.
Juliette G. Jul 2017
We rented this condo for my mother's 50th bday. The location was great and the furnishings were super sleek. It is a bit of a walk to the beach, but not horrible. The pool is nice, with 2 to choose from. The facility offers canopy and chairs rentals which were super helpful, but be aware, they place you right next to the others so there isn't much privacy.
Amparo G. Jun 2017
Very happy with this condo
Maria J. May 2017
The place was beautifully furnished and offered a fully equipped kitchen. The grounds offered two spacious and conveniently located pools with easy access to the beach. My family and I would definitely recommend and return for another stay.
