Sun Roamers is a very nice park but has it's drawbacks. We had the feeling from the moment we arrived that we were constantly being watched. The staff is friendly but there seems to be a lot of unwritten rules that you will be unaware of. Satellite TV is spotty at best with only a couple local stations. They have a beautiful pool but are quick to tell you that upkeep is expensive and your guests are charged $5.00 apiece daily. There is a 5mph posted speed limit which is enforced with warnings and speed bumps on the entrance road. The workout room is small with outdated equipment some of it broken. If you have a motorcycle, do not idle it in the park as management will be watching and I presume waiting to warn you. On the upside, laundry facilities are adequate and inexpensive and the park is clean. The bathhouse was kept locked so I am unable to comment on it's condition. Apparently there are some permanent campers with some being friendly but most are not. The RV spots are wide and roomy and there are a number of concrete pads. If you prefer a quiet park with a lot of unwritten rules this is a good place for you. If you are looking to co-mingle with other RV'ers, I would find another campground. I doubt that I would stay here again.

South Padre Island KOA is a beautiful park. We spent 3 1/2 months at this park. The staff is friendly, helpful and very pleasant. The commons area features seating, tv, pool table and a large kitchen-dining area. The staff cooked and served breakfast on the weekends for a very nominal fee. On the balcony above there is a full workout room that would satisfy everyone. Included are free weights, weight machine, treadmills, bikes and new tv sets. The entire park is white gravel which I was told keeps the bugs down, and it does. The entire park is kept very clean and the staff works hard to keep it that way. I am heading back in December for a 4 mo. stay and would highly reccommend it to anyone. Happy RVing!
