Margaritaville Beach Resort South Padre Island debuts

Margaritaville Beach Resort South Padre Island has opened as the first Texas beachfront resort in the Margaritaville portfolio.

“We are thrilled to bring Margaritaville to the South Texas coast, allowing locals, guests and visitors alike to experience a one-of-a-kind oasis,” said Rone Middler, GM, Margaritaville Beach Resort South Padre Island. “An easy drive or plane trip from the major metro areas of San Antonio, Austin, Dallas and Houston and convenient access to Mexico, Margaritaville Beach Resort South Padre Island provides the perfect getaway for guests of all ages looking for fun, relaxation and adventure.”

Highline Hospitality Partners, the hospitality investment platform launched by Highline Real Estate Partners (HREP), invested more than $30 million to completely transform the Pearl Hotel South Padre into a Margaritaville resort that reflects the quintessential laidback lifestyle for which the brand is known.

Guests are immediately transported to a vacation state of mind in the island-inspired design of the resort’s 200 guestrooms and 50 beachfront condos with one, two, or three-bedroom configurations.

Dining options include three restaurants and bars, including LandShark Bar & Grill, which offers indoor and outdoor patio seating overlooking the Gulf of Mexico; the Salty Rim Bar & Grill, a swim-up bar, serving signature cocktails and bar bites; and Joe Merchant’s Coffee & Provisions, a grab-and-go destination for bold coffee drinks and quick bites.

The area’s largest hotel pool, heated all year round, is surrounded by private cabanas and a separate area for kids. Adjacent to the resort is the Sapphire Spa. The resort also hosts meetings, special events, Quinceañeras, family reunions and weddings of every size, offering 8,000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor meeting space with access to the latest audio/visual equipment and other convenient amenities.
