Beautiful Property - Bad circumstance

  • 3 of 5

The Sapphire Condos are a beautiful piece of property and our Condo was no exception. Our Condo was not only beautiful it was also very well appointed, the kitchen was well equipped for rental property. There were beach toys, extra chairs and other extra's that made the rental a very nice choice.

Unfortunately, the weather was such that any outside activity was undesirable. That certainly is not the fault of the Sapphire Towers.

But, given the weather, it would of been a good week to have the "theater room" working which was, "out of order."

More importantly, the Sapphire towers are a 29 story structure, and when we arrived one of the only two elevators was out of service This meant longer waits for an elevator ride up or down. And, the day before we were to leave the second, and only other, elevator also quit working. That meant 29 floors of guests were left, on their own, to make their way up and down a back stairwell. We happened to be on the 19th floor, sure glad it wasn't the 29th. Negotiating 19 floors of steps carrying infants, luggage and yourself was a challenge with no help or compassion from management. The big problem, in my opinion, is that Management did too little to expedite repair of the first set of elevators that went out of service and instead seemed satisfied to simply say "we are waiting on parts." Had Management insisted the first set of elevators be repaired quickly, the failure of the 2nd set of elevators would not have been critical. No one worked on the first set of elevators, at all, during our stay. The area is a regional HQ for Fed EX, I can not accept the "waiting for parts" excuse as a defense for this failure.

In the lobby sat a gentleman that was simply unable to climb the steps to his room, so there he sat. When I returned from dinner, there he still sat. This was an unacceptable situation. Management's assistance or offer to accommodate inconvenienced guests was absent. As long as you paid your rent, it appeared their life was the same, even if you carry you luggage and kids up and down 19 floors of a back stairwell,(that's 38 half flights).

One additional comment, the VRBO listing indicated that each Condo had a balcony facing east (the Gulf) and west for viewing of both sunrise and sunsets. I did not find that to be true. We did have a balcony facing the Gulf and if you looked hard against the building you could catch a small glimpse of the entrance to the bay, that's all.

Owner's Response: We thank you again for staying with us at the Sapphire Resort. The Sapphire is South Padre Island’s leading luxury Beachfront condominiums. This occurrence happened over the holiday week in which the elevators were experiencing some down time for replacement parts for a period of time. We are very sorry that we were not able to meet your needs during this very difficult time. This condo is located on the 19th floor. Bay balcony access doors are located right outside each condo’s hallway door. The bay side balconies also include electric BBQs. At the time of check in a representative should be explaining to all guest all areas of the building as well as all amentities the Sapphire has to offer our guest.

Excellent Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo was bright and spacious; everything we needed was provided down to the chairs for the beach. We spent one day just at the pool where we rented one of the cabanas. It was quite peaceful and relaxing The pool is exquisite. We would definitely like to return next year. Thank you for a great vacation.

Our new Vacation Destination!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay for my family at the Sapphire and we will definitely come back. The resort is beautiful and luxurious and this condo was even more amazing than the last one we stayed at. The view was amazing! Last time we stayed here, we were in the North tower. That condo was very nice but what may not be obvious is that the Pearl Resort is in front of the North tower. So the views are obstructed from lower floors (around 15 down) and you can hear the roof top AC units at the Pearl from the front balcony vs. the sound of the ocean. Since this Condo is in the south tower on the 19th floor, it had NOTHING in front to block your views, and it is right over the Sapphire pool! It’s above the Pearl so you have a complete unobstructed view of the coast. Again amazing views, can’t say enough about that! Next are the amenities. With the Spa, game room, pools, and theater room, there were plenty of things for our family to do without ever leaving the Sapphire. We tried out the Spa, they had wonderful body wraps and massages, worth every penny. Also the pool is really nice, not crowded and very family friendly. The Pearl pool next door which we also had access to, was very nice although a bit louder, but had a heated swim up bar which is a bonus. Also there are great restaurants in the area. I highly recommend Gabriella’s and Sea Ranch which are both nearby. Finally was the condition of this condo. This condo looked brand new, everything was spotless, all high end appliances, mattresses, even the linens and towels. We really liked the way it was decorated with a more modern look vs. over the top tropical décor in many other condos. Every room had a bigger TV than I have at my own home! I loved the fact that the master bedroom had black out shades given all the windows in these condos face East. While the sunrise is a beautiful thing to experience, it’s nice to have the option to sleep in. There were plenty of beach toys, chairs, umbrellas and even a cooler with wheels. They thought of everything! We didn’t bring any beach toys and the kids didn’t miss a thing. It also had video games, WiFi and a fully stocked kitchen for the 8 of us. We look for very specific things in a beach front condo; views, amenities, décor, and how well it’s maintained and stocked. This condo had it all, we will definitely return (hopefully this summer) and stay in this condo again!

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is top of the line! It still sparkles with all the new amenities and furniture and I can't wait to go back with my family! we rented for a girls weekend and it had everything we needed to get away from all the craze of everyday life. The building is clean, has great staff and everything you could want. Spent a day at the spa and the treatments were fab too! Plenty of towels, kitchen utensils and supplies and an amazing view of the water. Thank you for offering such a first class retreat!
