After a day of volleyball, parasailing or snoozing on the beach, guests can splash in the 6,000-square-foot pool and sip a tropical drink at the swim-up bar. The Pearl also hosts a full-service restaurant specializing in fresh local seafood — with a side of breathtaking Gulf views. A full-service spa, fitness center and kids' summer camp round out the perks. The Pearl is steps from the beach and less than a mile from local attractions, such as the Schlitterbahn Beach Water Park, dolphin watching, scuba diving and deep-sea fishing excursions. South Padre Island Convention Center is four miles away, and South Padre Island Golf Club is 12 miles from the hotel. It's about 40 miles from Valley International Airport in Harlingen. our guests report that the Pearl is "family-friendly with a very laid-back and relaxing vibe," making it "well worth every penny."
