The Holiday Inn Resort South Padre Island-Beach Front is part of the popular 25-acre Schlitterbahn Beach Waterpark, home to indoor and outdoor water parks with wave pools, water coasters, slides, and river floats. There are two heated outdoor pools, including one with fabulous views of the white sand beaches that are some of the best in Texas, and another pool with a swim-up bar. There are multiple dining options, including The Seaside that’s open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The Sea4ever Rooftop Bar & Grill is open seasonally and offers jaw-dropping ocean views that can be enjoyed with upscale fare. There’s a fitness center, a gift shop, and a laundry room on-site too, while the spacious rooms include microwaves, mini-fridges, and flat-screen TVs. Many have ocean views, and if you want to cook some of your own meals, book a suite, which comes with a kitchen and a separate living area.
