Margaritaville Beach Resort South Padre Island has opened as the first Texas beachfront resort. The laid-back vibe of South Padre Island gives the resort a fun, easygoing ambiance. With all-ocean view rooms and condos, the resort keeps with the island-inspired style of its surroundings. Its accessibility from major Texas cities and convenient access to Mexico make it an ideal getaway for beach events.
The transformation from Pearl Hotel South Padre to Margaritaville resort was made possible by an investment of over $30 million by Highline Hospitality Partners, a hospitality investment platform launched by Highline Real Estate Partners. The resort now features 200 guest rooms and 50 beachfront condos available in one-, two-, or three-bedroom configurations.
The resort’s versatile event space includes 8,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space equipped with the latest audiovisual technology and other convenient amenities. Attendees can enjoy the area’s largest hotel pool, with private cabanas and a separate section for kids for those enjoying bleisure travel. The Sapphire Spa is adjacent to the resort, with an array of treatment options, a full hair and makeup salon, and a fully equipped fitness center.
A row of hammocks underneath towering palm trees and fire pits ensure outdoor comfort around the clock. For those seeking beachside adventures, the resort’s concierge desk offers convenient scheduling of activities such as windsurfing, banana boat rides, parasailing, offshore fishing, dolphin watching, and wave runner rentals.
Margaritaville Beach Resort South Padre Island boasts three restaurants and bars. The LandShark Bar & Grill, with indoor and outdoor patio seating overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, provides a picturesque setting for meals. The Salty Rim Bar & Grill, a swim-up bar, serves signature cocktails and bar bites, allowing guests to enjoy refreshments while lounging in the pool. For those seeking a quick snack or coffee boost, Joe Merchant’s Coffee & Provisions offers a convenient grab-and-go option.
