Our stay was one week after Hurricane Hanna and we were in touch with management regarding the condition and any property issues prior to our arrival. Fortunately everything was in great shape, the condo was clean, updated and as advertised. Had a great beach vacation. The location is excellent and we plan to return next year.

Very satisfying experience. The unit was clean, comfortable, and well stocked with kitchen utensils. Moreover, the view was great and our walk to the beach with chairs and umbrella was short. We hope to return at least once a year.

We love El Constante and room 209!!! My husband and I rented it 2 years ago for our mothers and decided to stay there ourselves this year with our 9 year and 10 month old daughters; we were so pleased!! This will be our go to every summer when we come to Port A with our family....the room was cozy and clean and the staff is fantastic! We especially love the handy man that works there....he’s always working so hard and does a fantastic job of keeping the grounds looking great!!

Super Clean apartment. Beautiful Views. Apartment is perfect for beach get away. Only problem was hot tub green and pool not clean.

Our unit was perfect for my family of 5. The location and view was amazing. The 3 balcony views were great. Kitchen was fully stocked with all of the utensils needed to cook a family meal and the washer and dryer really helped also. Great staff. We will definitely be returning and booking this exact same unit!!

We have been coming to El Constante for over 12 years and it has been a wonderful place to bring our family. We have never had a problem or situation. This year, towards the last day of our vacation, the was a large family drinking alcohol out of cans in the pool, dipping tobacco (with there spit cup at the edge of the pool)and not abiding by the 20 person limit. There family was more than 20 themselves. They were laying and jumping from the fountain cussing and partying way too loud. We opted to stay out of the pool for the rest of our vacation. I would suggest that the office staff enforce the rules for our safety and comfort.

Really enjoyed our experience in 209. Just as the pictures showed. GREAT LOCATION! Excellent views! My only disappointment was the chairs on the balcony off the living room - they are tall, slanted and just too awkward to comfortably sit in. They might be cool, but even our 17 year old said thumbs down on the chairs. Luckily there was another balcony off the master bedroom.

Wonderful experience. Staff was amazing to work with. Room was clean and nicely decorated. Definitely recommend this place over and over again

Staying in the corner unit was perfect for our family after my husband's death. We've been coming to El Constante since the early 80s and glad to see the updates. Having a washer/dryer was essential since we had no cleaning service. Kitchen was well stocked, except for a steamer for our crabs. We did hear a critter near the pantry off and on. I hope 209 is available next visit!

Wonderful place overlooking the ocean. Comfortable beds, clean rooms, stocked with essentials needed for full kitchen. Beautiful and clean pool area and hot tub. Nice 1 mile long boardwalk between condo and beach. Clean and swim-able ocean. nice hospitality by padre escapes. El Constante room 209. We will be back and I’m a little picky about my once a year vacations. I’d recommend it for sure!

Such a nice place, truly Ocean Front!! Condo was newly renovated & with welcoming interior. 3 balconies with ocean front views! Comfortable furnishings. Very clean. All the kitchen items needed to prepare a meal. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Our unit is always amazing. We stay there every year. It is clean, beautiful and the views are amazing. It is right on the beach with easy access to everything, and worth every penny. The pool and grounds are clean and well-maintained. This is the first year, though, that there were issues with guests. Guests were drinking by the pool. A few nights, there was a strong smell of marijuana every time we left our room. My kids were especially uncomfortable with this. One night, there was a very loud pool party that lasted until after midnight. I called the 24 hour number at 10:00, and I was told to call the police if I wanted to report it. Since it wasn't that kind of emergency, we just dealt with it. The management did call me the next day to say that they identified the guests who were partying and addressed the issue which I appreciated. Parking near our room was always full, and I realized that people who were not staying in the complex were parking in the lot to go to the beach. The parking passes were not being checked.
Also, non-guests were using the pool since wristbands were not checked. This has always been a family place, but drinking, drugs and late night parties have changed the atmosphere. Having a night security guard during the summer would make a tremendous difference. Despite the issues, we will continue to stay at El Constante and recommend it to friends.

We always like going to El Constante. Been going there for 20 years. Right on the beach and the staff is always willing to help.

Loved the Condo. The decks facing the beach were amazing. The location was great. Loved being able to walk right out the gate to the beach.

Our time there was wonderful. The office staff was excellent. We reported a bathroom repair and the repair staff was so prompt and courteous.

Great to hear everything went so well! We look forward to having you back again soon.

Lovely condo on beach! Beautifully appointed. 2nd time we've stayed there. Relaxing.
A few suggestions:
Instructions for TV's. All three TVs did not work until a lady from office came to our rescue. Written sheet would be awesome.
No potholders anywhere....
In jest, but would be awesome- someone two old ladies could pay to haul luggage & groceries up the steps to 2nd story. (Or elevator to 2nd floor)
(no two bedroom condos downstairs)

We have been coming for years and like this condo best. Love all of the renovations!

Wonderful room, love the views.
- Kathleen C. from Staples, Posted: 08/07/2018
We love this condo. It is beautifully decorated and cared for. The views are unbeatable. Padre Escapes is very attentive and responsible. My relatives compete to rent this condo every year when we go on vacation together! We enjoy this vacation every year.

From the moment we walked in until we had to sadly leave, our experience was amazing. We had access to a washer and dryer which makes those wet bathing suits and towels from swimming at the beach and in the pool easier to manage. We were on the side and beach front balconies more than any other visit because the furniture was comfortable and inviting. The condo had recently been updated and the kitchen was fully equipped with all the necessary cooking gadgets. The unit was clean and comfortable. Being right on the beach and having car access made it convienient for our whole family to come and go to the beach throughout the day. We LOVE Padre Island Pizza and they deliver right to the condo. We were thinking about trying someplace different for next year but after the wonderful experience we have already booked the same unit for next year. I would highly recommend El Constante to anyone.

I love this condo! It's the best with a wonderful view from every window and door! Great maintenance of property and awesome staff!
- Jacquelin H. from Driftwood, Posted: 06/16/2018
Fabulous condo right on the beach! Lovely inside &
perfect outside. Great walkway or easy access to beachcombing. Only problem was no written instructions for TV- had to wait until next day to fix & reset. but they did it right away in the morning.
- Carole K. from NEW BRAUNFELS, Posted: 05/26/2018
The accommodations were fine, the pool was small and overcrowded.
- Johnny M. from Adkins, Posted: 05/15/2018
Very nice condo with excellent views.
- Debra A. from Carbondale, Posted: 05/04/2018
This condo was beautiful! My family and I really enjoyed our stay here. We felt really relaxed, it is so nice being so close to the beach. It's nice to have the option of swimming in the pool or enjoying the beach! We will definitely be staying here on our next trip to Padre Island!
- Keren S. from Austin, Posted: 09/20/2017
HGTV would be jealous. Rented 2 bed 2 1/2 bath beach front condo for our Mom's birthday. She was so pleased she said, "if I ever get an ocean front condo I want it to look like this". The place looks like HGTV came in and remodeled. As of Labor Day only the beach front condos were remodeled but soon this will be a premiere spot. Hard to find a really nice clean place at North Padre but if that's what you want its definitely worth the price. The lady at the front desk was super nice as well. Pool is nice, short walk to the jetty to see sea turtles in the evening. Couldn't ask for a better vacation!
