Bahia Mar Resort South Padre Island Reviews
All-inclusive feel without the cost Jul 22, 2008
The Bahia Mar resort has been my home away from home for my family and I. While it's a little far from the main business area of the South Padre Boulevard, it's proximity to the beach is excellent. You can choose to stay in the main hotel building or pay extra for a condo along the walkway towards the beach. The main building is about half a mile from the beach but on the walk there, you stroll along a little stream and come across the resort's two pools. One pool is right by the main building while the other is a few yards away from the beach. All the usual beach accessories can be rented here- banana boat, lounge chairs, etc. The hotel has its own bar and restaurant as well as a club(that I haven't been to). There are picnic areas and barbeque pits.
The rooms themselves vary greatly. I'm usually with family and some extra people so we typically get two double beds with sofa pull out and full kitchen. They are quite large and almost always have a good view. The condos really are just apartments, usually with several bedrooms, full kitchen and living room. The rooms are by no mean luxurious but they are adequate for being a good place to knock out after a long day in the sand, surf, and sun.
Finally, the Bahia Mar is a very popular Spring Break location, as it becomes very all-inclusive during that time(except for the alcohol of course). Generally, if people aren't in the hotels by Coca Cola beach, they are staying at the Bahia Mar. There are as many activities and concerts as at Coca Cola beach but you never have to go far. They monitor who's staying there by issuing wristbands to all the paid guests , although there's some ways around it. If you don't like crowds, avoid this hotel at that time of year or during Easter.
All in all, the Bahia Mar is an adequate place for accommodations on the island.
