Mini Honeymoon- S Padre Island, TX/other recommendations?

Recommended Posts

Matt and I wanted to do a mini honeymoon in Oct/Nov since we didn't do anything after the wedding. Airfare has pretty much killed any of the ideas we have come up with (5 night cruise turns into $2200, AI resort airfare is about $500 each).

 

Has anyone ever been to S Padre Island? Any tips/pointers/recommendations? (I know it just got hit by Dolly, but I'm expecting it to be back to usual by the time we go)

 

For some reason I've always been interested in going there. I've seen/heard on tv that it is a big spring break place. However, I don't want to go during that time.

 

We are trying to keep it around $1200 total (hotel & air) for the both of us.

I've been to SPI a couple times and really liked it...very laid back (as long as its not spring break season). I think it just got pounded by the hurricane though...not sure if there was damage....

Very cool, what hotel did you stay at?

Once we find a hotel I'm going to call and ask about the hurricane damage, if any.

Hi there!

I'm from Texas and sadly I have not been to SPI since I was a kid, but all I hear are great things about the island!

 

Have you checked the airfare to see if it's economical?

Spring break season is over so you wouldn't have to worry about crazy teenagers running around and Texas, in general, is sooo affordable esp for vacation!

 

I think it's a great choice! Plz let me know if you have any further questions!

Thanks everyone! Prices for hotel and airfare range from $1000-1300 for the both of us. I guess I need to determine what hotel.

Does anyone have any recommendations on activities while we are there?

Hi Kelly! I've been in south padre island many times, it's 1.5 hours aways from where I live. I agree you have to make sure you don't go on spring break season, and also make sure the weather is hot when you go. And make your reservations on time 'cause it's always full

I'm from south texas but I have never been to SPI. We always went to port aransas, but I would not suggest that for a trip where you need to fly. it's not that different from any other beach town.

 

i think it's only spring breaky when mtv shows up.

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
