"Nice location and inside pool activities for the kids"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
2nd stay at this hotel. Enjoyed first stay so much decided to invite family to bring out great nieces, nephews and grandkids. Laid out on beach 4-5 hours while waiting for rooms to be ready. Since hotel was right on the beach we had access to the restrooms. Had three rooms over the pool and play area. A microwave and refrigerator would have been nice for storing water and snacks for the kids. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Check-in was 4 pm and I checked a couple of times for early check-in and rooms were assigned to us at three even though we laid out on the beach another couple of hours. Pier was close enough to toss a line or two in the water. We didn't have much luck at catching anything but did pick up valuable info from other local fishermen who were catching fish. Before leaving Corpus made a stop at the Texas State Aquarium. Kids had a great time at beach and Aquarium.
