Family Vacation at Palmilla Beach Resort | Port Aransas, TX

Port Aransas is by far my favorite beach town in Texas (about 4 hours south of Austin) 🏖. I've been to South Padre, Galveston, Corpus and Rockport and I always find myself coming back to Port A. My family stayed at the beautiful vacation rental, Sea Rocket Lane, located inside Palmilla Beach Resort and I'm excited to share about our stay in this post👇!

Our stay was hosted by Sea Rocket Lane but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Family Vacation at Palmilla Beach Resort | Port Aransas, Texas

STAY:
Sea Rocket Lane is a stunning two-story home overlooking the beautiful Palmilla golf course. It sleeps 10 and has 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. The living room also has a sleeper sofa.

Master Suite - king bed, direct front porch access, spa-like ensuite bath with double vanity and walk-in shower and closet

Second Master Suite - Queen bed, golf course side patio access, ensuite bath with a tub/shower combo

Third Suite - Full-over-full bunk bed, ensuite bath w/ a tub/shower combo

Made for happy hour, a big balcony overlooks the golf course and has three rocking chairs. Another furnished balcony overlooks the lawn and golf course, while a third balcony off the kitchen is ideal for sipping drinks and grilling outside (included outside for your use). We loved watching the sunrise and sunset from the porch!

Amenities include a washer and dryer, complimentary Wi-Fi, large TV in each bedroom, a pack 'n play, parking available for two vehicles and an outdoor shower. 

Once we put the kids to bed, the adults hung out in the large dining area playing cards!

BEACH / POOL
We rented a golf cart to access the beach across the wooden boardwalk just a few minutes from our rental, however a golf cart isn't necessary if you don't mind walking a bit. You can rent beach chairs and umbrellas to be set up on the beach every morning through guest services, which is worth every penny in my opinion. I advise to call at least a month ahead to book your golf cart and beach set up. 

There is currently one large pool on the resort, but they do have plans of expanding and building more pools. They have cabanas for rent around the pool, but there are plenty of chairs and tables to sit at as well. We really enjoyed the poolside food and drink service! 

ON-SITE DINING
We didn't get a chance to visit the restaurant, Black Marlin Seaside Grill, on the resort but I heard the food is amazing! It's one of the top restaurants in Port Aransas and serves fresh seafood including shrimp and grits, Thai coconut curry snapper, seafood Mac and cheese, blackened redfish and more! They also serve salads, burgers and steak. 

REDS Patio Bar just outside of Black Marlin is a fun outdoor bar that plays live music, has TVs to watch sports and is kid friendly with corn hole and a large open field next door! They have a food truck outside serving burgers, nachos, calamari and tacos. 

ACTIVITIES
Golf Course - Alex and Turner played 9 holes and had a blast on the course originally design by Arnold Palmer. No membership is required, and every golf booking comes with a complimentary golf cart and access to the driving range 1 hour prior to your tee time. 

They do have on-site kids activities including s'mores, movie nights, free popsicles and more. While we were there they offered a stand-up paddleboard yoga class in the pool that sounded fun!

I really like the location of Palmilla Resort as it's just a few minutes from downtown Port Aransas. We usually eat breakfast and lunch at our rental and then head to downtown for fresh seafood!

Thanks for this post! My family (including two sons - ages 1.5 and 3.5) loved Palmilla, too. Out of curiosity, which did you prefer between Palmilla and Cinnamon Shores? We haven’t been to Cinnamon Shores, so I’m curious about your comparison thoughts!
