Tiki Condominium Hotel

Resort in South Padre Island

This Polynesian-themed veteran turns up the tiki clichés at the north end of developed SPI. Units have full kitchens and range in size from one to three bedrooms, but even on the furthest block you're never more than 10 minutes from the beach and even less from the two swimming pools. Two-night minimum. Pet friendly, for a fee ($75).
