Hilton Garden Inn South Padre Island

Two-Night Stay at Hilton Garden Inn South Padre Island in Texas

Give as a Gift

Family-Friendly Island Resort on the Gulf of Mexico

As flocks of birds migrate across the Gulf to and from Central America, many will make landfall on South Padre Island near the southern tip of Texas. The Hilton Garden Inn South Padre Island lies within earshot of the 50-acre Birding and Nature Center, meaning its guests might wake up to the sounds of more than 300 avian species, including brown pelicans and peregrine falcons (different birds will make appearances depending on the season). Surrounded by dune meadows on a sandy stretch of the Gulf Coast, the resort combines its gorgeous natural environment with a relaxed, beach-inspired vibe.

On a two-queen junior suite oceanfront room’s private balcony, you can relax next to the beach at Andy Bowie Park while smelling the sea-salt breeze drifting off the Gulf. Matching beds in the two-queen partial ocean-view room face a 32-inch LCD TV, and the bathroom comes with a three-jet body shower to wash away sand, far more effective than streaking through a car wash. As the sun arcs over the south Texas sky, you can splash in the hotel's pool and wade into the balmy Gulf surf.

The Hilton Garden Inn South Padre Island hosts an extensive breakfast buffet at the Great American Grill, a casual eatery with self-serve coffee, fresh fruit, and pastries. Enjoy grilled mahi-mahi, sizzling fajitas, and other entrees while listening to live music on Friday and Saturday nights.

South Padre Island, Texas: Inviting Waters and Diverse Wildlife in Quiet Coastal Town

Located across from the Texas Mainland near the state’s southern tip, South Padre Island is a barrier island known for its recreational activities. Between South Padre and the mainland, there’s a bay called Laguna Madre with excellent windsurfing conditions. Full-service rental shops offer lessons and group instruction, allowing beginners to harness the steady breezes that sweep across the Gulf. The island also plays host to kiteboarders at The North Falls, a 500-acre private lagoon with open launch sites, consistent winds, and a floating conveyor belt powered by manatees.

A half-mile south of the hotel, Sea Turtle Inc. houses endangered Kemp's ridley sea turtles, an indigenous species that one of the smallest in its reptilian family. Founded in 1977 by Ila Fox Loetscher, affectionately known as "The Turtle Lady," the nonprofit organization was based out of her backyard until it was transferred to the current rehabilitation and rescue center. Tours of the hospital unit include open swimming-tank observation, costumed performances, and conservation education.
