We spent the week between Christmas and New Years at the condo at Bahia Mar. We were very impressed with the incredible view, but also pleasantly surprised at how well stocked the unit was at our arrival. The condo was also very clean and comfortable for our group of 6.
As for the resort, overall it seems to be well maintained, except for a few glaring things that may have more to do with the time of year than anything else. As for positives, the landscaping, pool and deck areas are well maintained. As for negatives, which may not be for your group, the tennis courts are a mess. I will just leave it at that. Also, in reality, the entire complex needs a fresh coat of paint desperately, as the sea air is very harsh. These negatives, however, did not detract from our stay or the quality of our particular unit, hence the reason I give it 5 stars. We had a great time and would love to go back.
We had a wonderful time in this very clean, comfortable and well equipped condo. The view of the ocean from the condo is magnificent and access to the beach is so close. The resort is very well maintained and with good security. I really appreciated the well equipped kitchen - there was everything I needed to prepare meals. The owner Laura is great to deal with - extremely helpful and gets back to you quickly if you have any questions. We did need to call maintenance on one occasion and they attended to our needs immediately. The beach is gorgeous with warm clear water. I would definitely recommend this property and look forward to future visits.
Overall this condo is located in a great location, facing the beach and has a large balcony. The condominiums are older and we kept this in mind. The problems started before we got to the condo, however, because the wristbands required were $20 for each person while we were there for the week of Spring Break. It had said $5 in our contract. We had to pay $140 at the gate in order to enter, so don't pay the condo owner! Also, there is no charge for parking permits, which she had tried to charge us per day! When asked about the extra cost to us for the wristbands she stated "it was a typo" and never refunded that money out of our fees. We entered the condo and one of the bedrooms had a king size bed instead of the twins shown in the picture. The refrigerator had leaked water everywhere, and there was no access to a washer/dryer as well, which was listed. I contacted the owner and she offered to send housekeeping to the condo to fix everything, but it may not be that night, but we could use the sleeper sofa. Really?! They came and rearranged the beds to become two twin beds with the correct bedding, unlocked the door to the washer/dryer, and do some clean up from dirt in the master bedroom and the leaking refrigerator.The "grill" listed in the VRBO page is actually a dinky charcoal grill not allowed on the grounds. So why have it in the condo? Everyone else has propane grills on their balconies. Forget wireless internet, It was in and out. The satellite used for the tv would not stream very well and we tried to use our Amazon Prime account to watch a movie and it couldn't stream. Luckily we had brought trash bags, toilet paper, paper towels, and dishwasher tabs. We were there with 7 people for 5 days and we paid for cleaning, but they wanted us to wash the dishes before we left without providing said dishwasher soap to do it, or trash bags to take out the trash as we left. (one trash bag provided) We had 5 rolls of toilet paper for 3 bathrooms. However, the air conditioner worked great. Big table to seat everyone for meals. The kitchen is older, not many cooking pans, etc., but we made it work. We paid the highest rate during this week and I would not stay here again. Almost 4 weeks had gone by and I had to ask why my deposit was not refunded. I was told she would have to check and then I had my refund the next day. This unit needs better management, is a shame because of the location and view. FYI- 3rd floor, no elevator for those with disabilities
We had a great experience at this condo. It was very clean and had a great view of the ocean, the sunrises from there were beautiful. The property was also beautiful, well maintained and safe. We were close to dining and shopping & there were plenty of things for 5 teenagers to do, they were never bored, and thats saying a lot! We all enjoyed the swimming pool after a day in the sand. We really loved staying here and will return next year. Thank you.
First of all we chose this Condo because it promised beautiful beachfront views and access, beautiful resort like grounds and just the right amount of bedrooms we needed to hold our family. Also, it was the ONLY property on the Island which could accommodate a third vehicle. This was for the 4th of July weekend and we knew we couldn’t pass that up. So we took it. As promised the property was clean, beautiful well maintained and safe. This took a huge load off our back because two of the vehicles we traveled in were trucks and we had a lot of gear in the back. We felt sale and assured to leave the cargo in the trucks during our entire week stay.
The kids loved the clean swimming pool and easy access to the beach. As promised the beachfront ocean views were breathtaking. My fiancé and I enjoyed coffee on the balcony every morning. It was a wonderful way to start the day. The condo itself was very comfortable and I appreciated having the washer and dryer to keep up with all the beach towels. We greatly enjoyed our stay in your home. Thank you.
We have not been on South Padre in many years. We chose this condo because of proximity to the water and the amenities. Everything met or exceeded our expectations. The condo is well appointed and comfortable. We were with our son and his family including a 6 year old and a 21 month old. There was room for everyone. The balconies provided great views of the ocean. It was quiet and the air conditioning kept us comfy. We particularly enjoyed the extra beach toys that were available in the closet. We took advantage of a canopy rental from Bahia Mar. For $30 per day someone set up and took down a canopy along with 4 chairs. In our book that was a bargain. Something to note - this unit is on the 3rd floor and there is no elevator. It required many trips to get all of our luggage and supplies into the condo. We will definitely book this condo again.
