#BeachHoliday ~ SchlitterBahn Beach resort and Indoor Waterpark

Disclosure~ This is a sponsored post on behalf of US FamilyGuide and SchlitterBahn Water Park and Beach Resort located in South Padre Island, Texas. My family and I received a complimentary 3 night stay at the resort and 2 day admission to the indoor water park in order to complete my review.:) All the pictures in this post are taken by me or my children.


I know what you are thinking THE BEACH in the middle of winter!?!...BUT wait SchlitterBahn IS a beach paradise featuring a 221 room resort hotel, indoor water park, full service restaurants and more.Schlitterbahn Beach Water park and Resort is the perfect combination of family adventures and state-of-the-art attractions, right on Texas' favorite beach. Experience the beach atmosphere, unique mix of attractions including a great carousel and the award-winning Torrent river system. Schlitterbahn Beach Water park and Resort is the perfect Beach Holiday. Book Yours Today!

The water at the beach was so clear and beautiful!  The temperature was in the mid 70's!! Of course being from north Texas ...the first thing I had to do after we checked in was to RUN to the beach.  I just had to put my toes in the soft warm sand! When we left Wichita Fall the highs were in the 30's!

We arrived around 430PM on Friday. Although the indoor water park was closed. (The indoor water park is only open on the weekend during winter season.) The kiddos and I had a wonderful evening on the Beach. It was the first time my kiddos had been to a beach. We played in the Ocean catching waves and collecting seashells till after dark.
Jessica sticking her feet in the water for the first time!
With in minutes she had ran back to the room to change and was swimming in it!
 Look how clear and clean the water is!
 The water temp was great to go swimming!
 This was the pier we had to walk down to get to the beach. It just a few steps from our hotel!
Jessica was picking up seashells and I went swimming!
Sunset ~view from the top of the pier:)
That evening we had dinner at the Seaside Grill. The Seaside grill is right on the beach!! The meal was awesome. We had chicken strips with fries and a great tasting Chocolate sundae. During the meal we could hear the waves of the ocean. It was so quiet, peaceful and relaxing!

After dinner we walked around the resort. SchlitterBahn was decked out for the holidays!





 On our second day we went to the indoor water park!! 
IT was awesome!!
It was only a few steps from our room and in and the same building!!
There was a play area for the little kiddos!


 My kiddos Luved the 2 indoor slides!
 Anthony coming out of the BlackBeards Twister water slide!
Here is a Video Anthony made coming down the Cyclone slide
Jessica and Anthony floating down the lazy river! 
This was my favorite part of the indoor water park:)
Here is a video I made while going down the Torrent River

Inside the water park was a 3 level Mega Blaster ball area!
 This was my kiddos favorite place to hang out when not in the water!
 Balls were flying everywhere!
The boys were shooting across at each other!

 Jessica found a bucket and filled it up often with "ammo"..
 The kiddos explored and used every ball blaster on each level.

If the water park and ball blaster was not enough entertainment for my kiddos~ 
There was also a HUGE carousel inside the water park!





The indoor water park includes picnic tables for parties and get together for events!

 On Sunday, I hit the beach early so that I could catch the sun coming up!
Check out these BREATH taking views! 
   

After watching the sun coming up, I woke the kids up and we drove to the Sea Turtle Rescue Center before the water park opened for the day. The Sea Turtle rescue center is located just a few minutes from the resort on the island.
Sunday was our last full day on the island. We enjoyed the water park until it closed :) Then, we hit the beach one last time for set of photos.



My family and I had a wonderful time! The kiddos are already asking to go back! They enjoyed seeing and playing at the beach! Jessica collected many different seashells. We all have memories to last us a life time! If you need a Holiday vacation consider Schlitterbaun Beach resort and indoor water park in South Padre Island, Texas. They offer great discounts of up to 40% for multiple day stays. The indoor water park admission is included in the resort stay and the beach is open 24 hours a day to enjoy from the guest entrance.

Schilitterbaun! I grew up in San Antonio and have many memories of the place. A few years ago, I was visiting family in Texas and we went for their Christmas event, though I don't know if they still do the Christmas events anymore.

Laura said...

I have been to Great Wolf Lodge, but not to SchlitterBahn. They look very similar. I wonder how they compare. Thanks for sharing. I know my kids would love it! I like all of your pictures.
