Gold level members (with just 30,000 credits) are booking studios for up to two Prime Season weeks – June, July and August.

It’s the Texas beach – and by popular demand – Royal Holiday members will join the throngs heading down from Houston, Dallas and across the border from Monterrey. Plenty will travel even further.

South Padre Island – at the same latitude as Fort Lauderdale – is hardly known outside of Texas, but promises just the relaxed, natural paradise, and sea-side fun as places with 100 times the reputation. It’s new this year and it’s just what many Royal Holiday-ers were waiting for.

Affordable and Fun

Think of it this way, seven nights and eight days at the Royale Beach and Tennis Resort sets Royal Holiday members back but 9,547 credits most of the year (in a studio). The summer prime season is popular for a reason – but a studio is still just 14,249. That’s low enough for members to stay seven nights, even ten or 14 nights in some cases.

When’s the last time you rode a horse on the beach?

70 condominium-style suites are proportioned for maximum comfort. Fully-equipped kitchens, cozy interiors and balcony views of the beach grace every studio, one- or two-bedroom suite. Free wireless internet, cable TV, and DVD, mean your time here is easier, more relaxing, and quite possibly, that much more fulfilling. Kitchen’s are ready stocked with dishes, flatware and cookware. Plus there’s a coffeemaker, blender, stove and oven, fridge, dishwasher, and microwave.

Linked to the mainland by a two and a half mile long bridge, the City of South Padre Island is home to an estimated 5,000 people, but more than one million people visit every year. 2013 is the first year Royal Holiday travelers will be visiting and enthusiasm is high!

With winter average temperatures of 65F (18.3C), and summer average temperatures of 82F (27.7C) and an average of 253 days of beautiful sunshine, South Padre Island is unique in the middle of the USA.

Remember, there’s not just horseback riding on the beach but windsurfing, kiteboarding, and an abundance of friendly dolphins who call the bay home. Parasailing, jet skiing, shopping, tennis, golf and just all-day lounging by the pool are among the island’s favorite pass-times.

There’s also plenty of night clubs, restaurants, cafes, eateries and year-round festivals and events. Fresh Gulf shrimp, spicy Mexican dishes and plenty of good old American coastal fare make every visit a treat.

Fall in love, and you’ll be coming back every year. After all, that’s how we planned it.
