"Perfect vacation spot
Stayed here in multiple rooms for 2 weeks. Every room was very nice. The location is unbeatable. Lovely views."

"#126 El Constante
Through the years this has always been a great place to stay on the beach. Clean beach and the condo was clean. However the air condition did not cool well. The mosquitos were VICIOUS DUE TO RAIN, but not around the pool. A BIG concern was the issue of a COYOTOE(s) roaming the beach at night. DANGEROUS for small/medium dogs. Had a scare and luckily a couple staying in condo facing the boardwalk yelled out to warn me as I was walking my tow dogs!"
Sep 26, 2022 - Annette G., Universal City, TX
Not fancy but definitely my favorite place to stay! Can’t get closer to the beach, unit very clean with all the necessities to cook. So great to be able to bring my dog as well! Probably my forth order fifth stay here. Makes a beach trip so easy! "

Had an awesome time "

"Another one for the books
If you get to see my previous posts , I definitely have been a forever veteran at this condo . Every year it is a family tradition for us to meet here for July 4th and enjoy the lovely fireworks on the beach . Love all the new updates y'all have done for the condo property. Will be back again next year ! "

"Quick trip to the coast
Always enjoy staying at El Constantine. The unit was a bit dated. The people above us sounding like they were tearing the place apart until 2 am each night. The insulation is non existent, otherwise I really enjoy staying here. We could have used a handicap rap for my husband to get our stuff to the beach. "
Jun 25, 2022 - Kim S., New Braunfels, TX
"Last minute plans
Had a great time except for neighbors above were up at 3 am running what sounded likes cattle up and down. Otherwise, unit was great. Very clean and we even got to settle in before the 4 pm check in early so thats always a plus. We usually rent a beachfront unit here but had last minute plans so booked a side unit. still great spot. literally 2 minute to the sand if that far. "

"Worst Bed EVER
We typically enjoy our stay (this was our 5th) regardless of the circumstances. Customer service on site & on the phone is always amazing! The biggest issue was the bed; it was like lying on a very sturdy cardboard box that was lumpy if that’s even possible. The only saving grace for this unit was that we found the sleeper sofa had a 3" memory foam mattress. As it was just the two of us, we took the queen mattress from the sofa & put it on the king size mattress in the bedroom. We didn't get to sit on the couch unless we wanted to move the mattress back each morning. (I found a mattress complaint in the reviews dated 11/08/2021.) The king size pillows had regular size pillowcases (not very sanitary). The dishwasher smelled like sewer, and I had to wash most of the pots and pans before use. The kitchen sink water never got hot (not sanitary); no problems in the tub or bathroom sink though. Upstairs neighbors were very loud (heavy steps). Will not return to this unit. "

Quick weekend getaway. Place is rustic but right on the beach."

"Fantastic time dispite the rain!
I LOVE El Constante! Staff friendly, clean and beautiful rooms. I go every summer with friends and we have an amazing time. First time staying during off season ready to go into the heated pool, but it rained. Only disappointment was (not the fault of staff just our luck) place was pretty empty but we had someone one above us with heavy steps.. other than that our stay was amazing. I’ll keep going back. Thank you Taylor for helping me with my reservations. You’re the Best!"
Dec 22, 2021 - Sonia I., San Antonio, TX
Rental condo was clean and quiet, we went midweek so not a lot of people around. Unit had average furnishings, TV the usual Padre Island problem- never known in the years we have been going there can one easily get good reception or findi a channel easily. Bed needs a new mattress a pillow top would make for a better nights sleep. The air duct in the living room needs painted - rust problem. Overall unit was clean, convenient, and office staff accommodating. Other people’s pets were not a problem as far as noise as there wasn’t too many people staying there. Plan to return for another short break. "
Nov 09, 2021 - , San Antonio, TX
The condo was clean. Easy beach access. The beach is clean. Will definitely be back. "

"GREAT STAY! We will be back
We've never been to Mustang Island before and needed a beach getaway. The property did not disappoint. We did not have any internet or TV for our 3 day stay but we weren't in the room a lot anyway. They were working with the internet provider and gave us a discount on our room for the inconvenience. We loved staying here and we will be back. Pool was clean and very inviting."
Sep 13, 2021 - Lawrence W., Pearland, TX
Easy reservations and checking in and it. Great customer service. "
Aug 14, 2021 - , Buda, TX
The property is nice, however it is time to replace the bed. Did not sleep well. My adult children stayed in this unit and complained about the bed. The rest of the unit is ok."
Aug 13, 2021 - Anthony S., killeen, TX
I have stayed at El Constante for years. This year I was there twice during the June and July. I love the condos, the location to restaurants and more importantly it is right on the beach where I don't have to walk over bridges to get to the ocean. Recommend to anyone "
Aug 06, 2021 - Patricia P., San Angelo, TX
Property was located very close to the beach. Padre Escapes was good with communication and very helpful staff. The apartment was good. Overall, great experience. Will definitely come back. "
Jul 18, 2021 - , San Antonio, TX
We had an issue with the AC the first night. We went to a local hotel for the night (management company said it would be midnight before a tech could be there and we didn't want to wait for the tech, then the repair time then the "cool down time" after an already long day - property offered no compensation). It worked well for the rest of the visit. Temperature is limited to 68 minimum. We purchased (and left for future occupants) a fan to help circulate air. It could have been a little cooler but the management company addressed what could have been a huge disappointment in a timely manner."

"We will be back!
Pet friendly unit, so the strong smell of bleach welcomed us, but the unit was perfect, staff was always helpful, and the vacation was fantastic!"

Great over all.

"El Constante 126
We know we took a chance co.ing during a tropical storm turned hurricane. Friday was great, Saturday the rain and wind came. We had a bad dripping leak on the ceiling. Maintece came and took pictures but never came back. We used all towels we had to soak up water. We couldn't even get extra towels because the office closed early. Saturday night the power went out. I was notified that my mom had a heart attack, so we left a day early. I haven't been offered a refund for our inconvenience. Not very good customer service but under the circumstances I understand, but feel we were left behind during a hurricane. "

Long weekend getaway. Small family of 3."

"Love this little beachfront escape
We had a great stay at El Constante. The room was clean and well maintained. Property staff were all very friendly and helpful, going above and beyond to answer maintenance needs we had. One front desk woman came out in a rain storm to bring us a new dvd player when ours stopped working. "
Jul 01, 2020 - Mandy B., Mansfield, TX
Me and my family loved it here location was perfect walking distance from the beach will definitely stay here again "

My wife and I enjoyed all. The location is well just a short walk to beach or just drive on beach (don’t forget beach permit). Restaurants are all close driving distance. We will be back. Awesome two thumbs up."

"Matilda's worse vacation rental
Too far from the pool & the sleeper sofa was awful. Never getting that room again"
Jul 29, 2019 - Matilda M., San Antonio , TX
We had a good time during our stay. Can't ask for a better location on the beach. The unit was clean and had everything you needed. The property was nice, nice pool area and the staff was nice & professional. We would definitely stay here again."
Jul 20, 2019 - Laura D., Kerrville , TX
The rooms were a little high priced. The sheets were dirty in the master bedroom, by the time we saw them it was to late to call the office. There was not enough towels. The a/c did not cool efficiently. The location was good."
Jul 04, 2019 - Jeanette R.
Very Disgusted to meet another visitor there with a room identical to mine paying $100 less PER NIGHT "
May 31, 2019 - Joe I., Austin, TX
"Construction Caos & Disgusting Scent
I walked through the door to offensive odors. Not clean-smelled like the floor was mopped w/a wet dog. We came in very late and were rudely awoken by multiple loud footsteps and banging above. Construction above and complained but no action not even a discount offered.Needless to say it was not the “Escape” we were looking forward to. We have booked At El C for the past several years! Worst experience! But- grandkids live the pool! Dog hairs everywhere "
Apr 10, 2019 - , San Antonio, TX
"Extremely clean by beach
The location was great, we could walk the seawall or go directly to the beach. The pool was well heated and loved the provided towels that you could swap out when damp. The property was extremely clean and the furniture in good shape. The kitchen had great dishes, pans, utensils for cooking."
Feb 24, 2019 - , Round Rock, TX
Great condo, very comfortable furniture and bed. Love El Constante location, very clean complex and great pool. Construction was going on but it did not disturb our stay. "
Oct 28, 2018 - Karen M., Helotes, TX
"home away from home
We had a good stay. We have been staying at El Constante for over 20 years. The only negatives I have was I'd wished there was an actual broom in the unit to sweep out sand. And one washing mechine didnt work, however office gave us back our money and used a different one. The TV was hard to use, too many remotes with too many buttons to get it activated. Positives include; no door key to keep up with. Security cameras everywhere, pool maintenance seemed to be better. And I liked looking at the new mint green hardy board on the back complex. "
Sep 13, 2018 - , San Angelo, TX
"Fun in Corpus
The office staff was very helpful and friendly with all our questions. Inside the condo, there still was dirt and sand behind the chairs and it was hard to sweep ourselves since the broom was old and worn down. The bathroom door had peeling paint. There were only 2 kitchen towels and they were not that good. On the outside, we could never sit on the patio because the chairs had something sticky on them that we couldn't get off. However, it was great to have 2 TVs! No arguing over what to watch after dark. And the living room had lots of room and the furniture was comfy. The condo was so relaxing and nicely decorated and just a short walk to the beach! Plus, there was plenty storage space. The pool was also awesome. Plus, there are security cameras that made a single mom traveling with kids feel better. Overall, it was a very positive experience. "
Jul 21, 2018 - Cristie P., Euless, TX
"Cozy and relaxing
Had a great mini vacation! The location was perfect and it is right on the beach. Every thing was clean and had a fantastic beach theme. The pictures make the pool and condo seem bigger than they really are. (Which is why it has 4 stars instead of 5). We had less room than we expected but we made it work. "
Jul 03, 2018 - Andrea H., NA, N/A
"The total package
The unit was clean and well stocked when we arrived. The location could not be more convenient. No beach view but short walk to the beach or drive if you'd like because the road is right there. Super friendly staff made some great restaurant recommendations. The pool is sparkling and refreshing and the other guests were friendly and respectful of each other (i.e., not rowdy)."

"Home away from home
Very clean and close access to the beach
Our stay was enjoyable and memorable. "

"Last minute get away
We had a lovely time on the island. We loved our vacation rental. It was super clean, reminded us of home, had everything we needed to enjoy our stay, and was within proximity to the beach. We definitely continue to book with Padre Escapes."

"Enjoyed our month.
Everything was good except we were not told about the laundering of sheets and towels. We were at the pool and saw someone go in with dirty and come out with clean. Inquired at the front desk and found out we didn’t need to launder them. "
Apr 07, 2018 - Janet S., New Baltimore, MI
We have stayed at El Constante many time and have always had a great experience. The staff was great. I booked my getaway during hurricane Harvey and they worked with me to reschedule my weekend when it was safe. I love the location and will continue to stay at El Constante. However, the couch bed and bed in the bedroom was AWFUL! The couch and bed should be replaced. Both were hard as a rock and we could hardly move in the morning. They did offer to move me to another property but we were not staying much longer and didn't want to move all of our stuff. They also gave us a blow up mattress but it was very small so we couldn't use it. Overall we had a good time but we were very unhappy with the bed's. I do recommend this property but the bed's need to be replaced or a bed topper should be provided. Also both sets of sheets had major stains on them. Great staff though and great location. Very excited to see the improvements to the property and can't wait to stay in an upgraded one next year! "

The location was perfect! The condo was clean, organized, and had everything we needed for a hassle free getaway. The staff was friendly. We couldn't have picked a better place. We will most definitely be back!"

"Find something else - this is a resort of last resort
Note: if you're renting this from Padre Escapes they don't tell you but you check in at the office of El Constante - not Padre's main office up the street.
I'll start with good: It's on the beach, the unit looks out (first at a parking lot) but primarily at the dunes which is nice, they allow dogs. The king size bed is large. The fridge was cold, as was the ac. The microwave worked. There is a car rinse right as you pull into the apartments which is a good feature. The pool was clear. Now, the bad. It reeks of mildew - under the sink you can see where they've replaced the cabinet bottom with plywood but apparently, they didn't fix the actual leak. The bedding was dirty - there was hair throughout the king-sized bed. I saw some small bugs (tiny, almost transparent, squished when touched) but didn't see any evidence that they were bed bugs, so hopefully they were something else (fingers crossed). The hide-a-bed was absolutely FILTHY, so good thing the other bed was a king b/c my whole family of 4 slept in it the whole time. However, that mattress is so bad my 3yr old was complaining about her back! Both my wife and I were basically crippled for the first few hours of the day after sleeping on the king. The bedroom door won't close without slamming it (needs planed), there’s filth in all the unit's corners and tons of crud under the bed. The mismatched blue couch and chair are old but serviceable - but after looking at the condition of the hide-a-bed sitting in them gave me the crawls.
Overall, this unit would have been fine if it weren’t so gross. We weren't paying top dollar and we were at the beach to go to the beach, not to hang out in a room. That said, the bugs, filth and smell of this unit was unacceptable and made my vacation VERY stressful. The fact that Padre Escapes doesn't tell you where to check in is extremely unprofessional. "
Jul 06, 2017 - Thad W., Austin, TX
"Quick weekend getaway
Rental and facility itself leaves much to be desired but it is right in the beach and we were able to bring our our pup so all in all we were happy. After all we were there for the beach. It would be nice if office might have a few toiletries and little things for purchase. "
